School Board Puts
Off Decision on
Fate of Portable
Classrooms
by Barbara O’Brien
It took nearly two hours of volatile discussion and back
and forth bickering and innuendos between Windham
School Board members before they decided not to make
a decision on the fate of the aging portable classrooms at
Golden Brook School.
The issue has been a hot topic in Windham since
mid-summer when word got out that water leaks around
window unit air conditioners had caused a mold and
mildew problem in some of the classrooms in the 14-year-
old structure. Although the damage has since been
repaired and recent air quality tests have showed the
10-classroom portable building to be safe for occupancy,
the debate about what to ultimately do with the facility
has continued to rage.
During the most recent meeting, on October 1,
school board members were presented with the results
of a study conducted by Trident, a project management
company out of Salem, New Hampshire. The study
involved a review of existing conditions, as well as
recommendations. The study was described as “an
independent voice” on the subject.
According to Trident representative Gino Baroni, the
existing portable building “is showing its age.” “As it gets
older, it’s going to cost more to maintain,” Baroni said.
The life expectancy of the portable facility is about 20
years, if it receives adequate maintenance.
The portable facility was built in 1999, but has been on
site in Windham for only the past four years. It was frst
located in Windham by the State Department of Education
for use as a kindergarten building. After three years
of lease payments being made by the State, however,
Windham took over the cost. Just a year ago, Windham
took on a lease/purchase agreement with a price tag of
$77,000 a year for fve years. Only one payment has
been made to date. Now that the kindergarten has a
permanent building, the portables are being used to house
frst-graders.
According to the recent study performed by Trident,
there are clear signs of vertical settlement and horizontal
shifting, which have caused damage to both interior
and exterior fnishes. It appears that the majority of
windows have leaked, causing moisture to penetrate the
exterior wall system. During the recent installation of
new “through the wall” air conditioning units, areas of
decay in the exterior wall sheathing were uncovered and,
subsequently, repaired.
“In summary,” the report reads, “the overall existing
condition of the building, based upon this non-intrusive
investigation, was found to be in fair-minus to fair
condition, with need of repair/improvements to the
envelope (siding) and possible structure.”
After reviewing the results of the study, SAU 95
Business Administrator Adam Steel told school board
members that the administration was recommending
that the existing portable structure be replaced next
summer with a new and higher quality modular building.
“Modular does not always mean cheap or temporary,”
Steel said, although that description does ft the existing
portable. The cost of purchasing an upgraded version and
removing the old building would be in the neighborhood
of $1,299,000, not including water service for a fre
sprinkler system ($25,000), a cistern, if required ($55,000)
or covered entryways ($9,000).
As for the disposal of the existing portable structure,
Baroni said it would be diffcult to fnd a market-rate
buyer to purchase the facility. “The potential of fnding
a willing buyer has a low probability,” he said. “This is
a second-use facility that was delivered to the Windham
School District in 2009. Any potential buyer would be
a third-use owner,” he explained. The 9,500 square foot
building is currently valued at only $20,000. “There’s just
no current demand,” Baroni stated. In fact, the Windham
School District might have to pay someone to dismantle
the existing portable and cart the materials away.
Steel said that to replace the current structure with an
upgraded version of the same size would cost taxpayers
about $300,000 per year for a period of fve years, at
an interest rate of about 2 percent per year. In addition,
however, the school district would still be responsible
for the remaining payments of $77,000 per year on the
portable building it would be getting rid of.
Another option that was raised was the possibility of
building a two-story portable structure, one that could
have 16 to 20 classrooms or other learning spaces. The
cost of the two-story concept would be more than double
that of a single-story modular, Baroni estimated.
The remaining options that were not recommended
by administrators include doing minimum upgrades
to the existing portable building, with the intention of
prolonging its life expectancy by about three more years
The Future is Bright at Windham High School
by Jillian DiPersio
On Wednesday, September 18 Windham High
School hosted Governor Maggie Hassan and the
New Hampshire Executive Council for their bi-
monthly meeting. During the summer months the
Council travels to different locations, their hosts
getting the opportunity to highlight programs and
characteristics that make their organization unique.
This month, Executive Councilor Chris Sununu
of Salem New Hampshire chose Windham High
School as host.
Everything about Windham High School is
young. With only two graduating classes, a brand
new principal, and programs that have been
running for fve years or less, the students and staff
at Windham High have accomplished more than
could ever be expected. For new Principal, Ryan
Kaplan, the event was perfectly in line with one of
his own initiatives to showcase the “amazing things
happening every day.”
Bomb Threat
Puts Emergency Procedures to the Test
by Karen Plumley
At 8:07 a.m. on Thursday, September 26, the Pelham Police
Department was notifed that Pelham Elementary School received
a bomb threat from an anonymous male caller. At this time,
the school was not yet in session but there was a small group of
daycare students present, as well as staff and administrators who
were immediately evacuated. The daycare children were taken
to the nearby middle school and cared for in the gymnasium.
In the meantime, many buses flled with elementary students
were already on their way. Police offcials state that they are
aggressively investigating the incident, but no arrests have been
made as of Wednesday, October 2, at 10 a.m.
Superintendent Amanda Lecaroz stated that there is a plan in
place for such instances, and the plan was followed correctly.
She said the fact that children were already on busses posed an
issue, but it was easily rectifed by dropping the children off at the
Middle School.
Police and Fire Department offcials arrived at the scene within
minutes to check out the situation, and they determined using
federally (FBI/ATF) approved standards that the threat level was
low. According to Lieutenant Gary Fisher of the Pelham PD, a
thorough search ensued around the perimeter of the school for
suspicious tampering and/or packages. When it was determined
Governor Hassan giving ofcial commendation to the WHS Robotics Team.

Pelham Transfer Station
Adopts New Traffc Flow Pattern
by Karen Pumley
The Pelham Transfer Station has recently
undergone a change in its traffc pattern for the trash
dumping side of the complex only. The new traffc
plan requires visitors to back up to the windows
at the compactor building instead of pulling up
alongside it. According to Station Director Stanley
Walczka, the new pattern will lessen the possibility
of traffc confusion and accidents, as well as speed
up the process during the peak hours of operation.
Walczka also stated that their busiest day is Saturday
where as many as 1,500 cars will be seen throughout
the day. Other busy times occur on Tuesday from
9-10 a.m. and Wednesday through Friday at 4-6 p.m.
“The process of backing into a spot in front of a
window will eliminate people having to carry their
trash across moving traffc,” said Walczka. It will
also provide the ability to use an additional four
windows for dumping (now they are only utilizing
three). The station has installed a new conveyor
system as well that will move trash from each of
the windows and automatically load it into the
compactor. “With the conveyor belt running it
will free up some of our employees so that they
can spend more time helping residents with heavy
materials and any questions they might have,”
Walczka explained.
There’s good news for residents with three trash
bags or less - they can now use a well-marked
express lane that doesn’t require backing up. Two
pass-through lanes are reserved for those with no
garbage to dump. Each of these special lanes is
marked with painted words/arrows or a sign, and in
some cases both.
The new traffc fow will offcially begin for all
residents on Tuesday, October 8, although the
conveyor and painted lane lines are already in place.
For more information, contact the Pelham Transfer
Station and Recycling Complex at 635-3964.
Two large lanes will allow trafc to separate: those with large loads that need to be dumped at
the windows will go to the right and those with small or no loads of garbage will head to the left
to utilize the express or pass-through lanes.
Back up spots near the conveying trashline at the Pelham Transfer Station have been
freshly painted and are ready for use.

Pelham Town Selectman Hal Lynde welcomed approximately
80 guests as they flled the bleachers of Pelham High School’s
gymnasium. He presented “Pelham’s State of Affairs,” as part of his
new anti-drug campaign. Lynde is the driving force behind Pelham’s
newly formed Pelham Community Coalition, whose goal is “Planting
Foundations for Good Decisions.” This kickoff event was planned
in conjunction with a day-long of presentations that had already
transpired in the town’s four schools.
Earlier throughout the day, students at Pelham’s schools were
spoken to about drug abuse, alcohol and tobacco use. Pelham High
School students were invited by Chucky Rosa, a man who suffered
the passing of two sons from addiction, to take a pledge to stay drug-
free and always think about the choices that they make. They were
given special dog tags to symbolize their commitment.
The evening’s assembly was organized to inform the adults as
Lynde listed some staggering statistics, “In National rankings, New
Hampshire is frst in alcohol abuse and second in marijuana use in
the last 30 days by 18 to25 year olds.” He went on to list numerous
statistics that all pointed to one undeniable fact; there is a drug and
substance problem among us. “The goal,” he continued, “is to raise
awareness and give you the tools to recognize a problem and how to
deal with it.”
The Pelham Community Coalition (PCC) was formed by Hal Lynde
and other concerned community members in the wake of tragedy
as a Pelham High School alumni died from a drug overdose. This
newly formed group aims to raise awareness in
the community and hopes to fnd direction from
members, parents and the town’s youth focus groups
to address this multi-faceted problem. In addition,
they want to help students make healthier choices to
last a lifetime.
Vahrij Manoukian, a Hollis Pharmacist, Selectman
and father of a child whose untimely death was a
result from substance abuse, spoke to the crowd with
frankness and honesty. His personal misfortune has
lead him to a new purpose as he travels to schools
to speak about prescription drug abuse, tragedy,
and what parents can do at home to help. “You
know somebody who is abusing drugs,” he said.
“Community outreach is the most important thing.
In 2010, there were 200 deaths from drug overdose
in 18 to 25 year olds. Seventy-fve percent were
doing drugs recreationally and the other 30 percent
was suicide,” he added.
Manoukian asked the crowd if anyone locked their prescriptions
away. Nobody raised their hand. He stressed the importance
of keeping prescription drugs locked up or, at least, accounted
for. “The number one killer is prescription drugs,” he said. As a
Pharmacist for 28 years, he has seen it all; phony prescriptions and
phone calls, addicts, lives ruined and people that are polluting the
community. He has had to tell customers to get out of his pharmacy
and never return. He urged parents to visit the prescription drop
off box in the lobby of the police station and rid their homes of
any prescriptions they are not using. He claimed, “Parents are the
number one drug dealers because they are not disposing their drugs.
No one is immune.” He wished that somebody had spoke to him
about youths abusing drugs prior to 2004. “The year I buried my
son,” he said solemnly.
Pelham High School’s Nurse Barbara Campbell was glad that
it was brought to light and thanked Manoukian for mentioning
that drugs such as Adderall and Ritalin, commonly used to treat
attention defcit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), are often stolen and
taken recreationally. “The State of New Hampshire is number one
per capita to prescribe Ritalin,” Manoukian said. “These pills are
sold for $20 each. A bottle of Oxycodone is worth about $5,000.
Nobody can detect that a pill is being brought to school; that is why
it is such a problem. Do you know what that
kid that sold those pills for $20 each is going to
buy? Marijuana and other drugs,” Manoukian
explained.
Parents, teachers, principals, police offcers,
town offcials, and School Board members were
invited to attend focus groups of their
choosing. In one classroom, Doctor
Srilatha Kodali spoke to parents about
the effects of drugs on the brain and
brain development. School Resource
Offcer Brian Kelly discussed results collected from a recent survey
that was conducted at Pelham High School. The information that
was to be presented would provide parents with insight into what
the kids in Pelham are actually doing when it comes to drugs and
alcohol. Another focus group concentrated on the power of media
in the lives of youth. Cigarette companies ads and Budweiser beer
company’s persuasive strategies target children at a young age with
brand recognition. A recent Super Bowl commercial advertized
a contest for naming the baby Clydesdale horse. Tym Rourke,
Chairman of Governors Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse
Prevention, Intervention and Treatment spoke in another classroom.
Pelham parent Kim Hunt said, “I was very impressed that
the entire Pelham School District, including the Pelham Police
Department, is addressing these issues in an attempt to help our kids
keep themselves out of trouble. It was astonishing to hear that NH
is one of the top states with substance abuse problems. It’s scary to
think that we need to start talking to our kids at such a young age
about an issue they are too young to fully understand.”
School Superintendent Amanda Lecaroz attended the kickoff event
and is looking forward to assisting the coalition in accomplishing
their goal of raising awareness with the students. “We have a group
of ambassadors that Heather Lagasse, the At-Risk Counselor at the
High School works with. They are spearheading the follow-thru after
today’s speakers. They have activities for Advisory to continue the
theme throughout the year,” she explained.

Food Safety Rules
As members of the NH House of Representatives Environment &
Agriculture Committee, we work to inform the environmental and
agricultural communities of proposed federal rules and regulations that will
affect them. Recently, the House Agriculture Committee attended a public
‘listening session’ on the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) rule.
Tese rules being proposed by the Food and Drug Administration are the
most sweeping reform of food safety laws in over 70 years, and may have a
devastating effect on our New Hampshire farmers.
Te listening session was sponsored by the congressional delegations
for New Hampshire and Vermont and the New Hampshire and Vermont
Departments of Agriculture at Dartmouth College. Public testimony was
received from 70 people before an audience of 200 farmers and interested
citizens. Representing the FDA was Michael R. Taylor the Commissioner for
Foods and Veterinary Medicine, who is responsible for the implementation of
FSMA. .
Te FSMA rules, arising out of the Bioterrorism Act of 2002, aim to create
an integrated food safety system and improve the quality of food products
to the public by reducing food-borne illness. In January 2013, the US Food
and Drug Administration issued two major proposed FSMA rules - the
Product Safety proposed rules, and the Preventive Controls proposed rule.
At the two-and-a-half hour listening session, Mr. Taylor and two members
of his food safety staff were presented with impassioned testimony from
New Hampshire and Vermont farmers on how these proposed rules will
affect them and other small diversifed New England farms. Two issues
stood out in this public testimony. First is the new agricultural water testing
regulation, which will be particularly costly and onerous due to the excessive
and arbitrary water testing requirements. Te second, which deals with
use of manure, would require a 270 day delay in planting crops after the
application, and would force some New Hampshire farmer to take felds
out of production because of the short northeast growing season. While
this standard will have little or no impact on the western states, it will
signifcantly affect New England.
We feel that these rules are oppressive and potentially damaging to our
New Hampshire farmers, and we urge you to support our growing local
food movement by letting us hear from you. Te rules need to have more
exemptions for our small diverse farms in New Hampshire or we risk losing
them.
Te deadline for submitting comments to the FDA is November
15, 2013. It is the intention of the House Environment & Agriculture
Committee to submit written comments on behalf of the farmers and
citizens of New Hampshire to the FDA, and we welcome your input. You
can contact us through our chair, Rep. Tara Sad (tara.eric@gmail.com),
or Ranking member Bob Haefner bobhaefnerjp@comcast.net or write to
the committee at: Environment and Agriculture Committee, Room 303,
Legislative Offi ce Building, 170 North Main St., Concord, NH 03301.
If you would like to submit your own comments by mail, visit the FDA
website for help. Te guidelines for submission can be found at http://www.
fda.gov/Food/GuidanceRegulation/FSMA/ucm261689.htm#open.

by Chris Gamble, Pelham High School Intern
Pelham High graduates have gone on to
represent Pelham in many wonderful ways.
Among these careers have been professional
baseball players, division one college soccer
coaches, New Hampshire State Representatives,
astronauts, and renowned authors and journalists.
On September 20, Barbara Walsh, the author
of “August Gale” and a Pelham High School
alumnus, stopped by the school’s library to sit
down with students to discuss her book which
was on the summer reading list for seniors
graduating in 2014.
Walsh became fond of writing at a young age.
She wrote poetry and long, fve-page letters to her
aunts and uncles. Later in her high school years,
she began to enjoy writing horror stories along
with her poetry. Never being very good with
deadlines, Walsh faced a rude awakening about
the importance of being prompt in her Photo
Journalism class at UNH when she handed in a
paper late and her professor was forced to fail her.
At that point, she was faced with two choices, quit
or push on; she chose to push on.
She soon graduated from UNH and moved
back to Pelham where she worked for a local
newspaper, the Eagle Tribune. It was there that
she won the Pulitzer Prize in 1987 for her article
on the Willy Horton case. This award helped her
to land a job in Florida reporting on the state’s
controversial death penalty. Her stay in Florida
was temporary, as she moved to Maine, then
soon back to New Hampshire where she got the
inspiration for her popular book “August Gale.”
Her inspiration came from her appreciation of the
movie, “The Perfect Storm,” and from her father
who expressed to her that there was a story in
her family that is very similar to that of the movie
flmed in Gloucester, MA.
Walsh told students about her life, family,
and her experiences while writing “August
Gale.” She explained that to make the book as
accurate as possible, she interviewed more than
200 people, both family and eyewitnesses from
Newfoundland. Walsh stated, “Interviewing
people is the best part,” referring to her book and
also to her long career as a journalist. However,
she also said the fact that the story was about her
family and their struggles, made it very upsetting.
Walsh exclaimed that this story was, “The
toughest thing I’ve ever written.” Not only was
it a diffcult book to write because of the amount
of time it consumed - nine years - but it was also
very emotional because of some information that
surfaced during her research about her family, her
grandfather in particular.
Along with “August Gale,” Walsh also wrote
a book recently entitled “Sammy in the Sky.”
Like “August Gale,” she got her inspiration for
this book from her family, only this time it came
from her children. The book features her family
and their dog Sammy. It details the story of the
dog’s life, sickness, death, and Walsh’s family’s
recovery in a short, children’s book. This critically
acclaimed, touching story has sold more than
10,000 copies. One reader from goodreads.com
writes, “Even a non-animal lover like myself was
touched by this book. It is a sweet story about
the loss (of) a beloved pet and the healing that
occurs.” For this book, Walsh collaborated with
internationally known painter Jamie Wyeth to
make this book as appealing and as touching as
possible for readers.
Walsh’s career after graduating from Pelham
High has been more than illustrious. With a
Pulitzer Prize, two books, and a possible movie
on the way, she is one of the more accomplished
alumni from Pelham. All of this has been made
possible by her hard work, determination, and
desire to keep working, even when the odds are
against her. She proclaimed to students that it is
important never to let anyone tell you cannot do
something and always fght for your dreams.
Prominent Author Returns to Roots
by Barbara O’Brien
On the recommendation of Windham Police
Chief Gerald Lewis, selectmen have endorsed
the posting of town-wide speed limit signs at
the juncture of nine major roads coming into
Windham.
Not only will money be saved by not having
to purchase as many signs, but the new plan
will cut down on “sign pollution,” Lewis said.
The new signs will be posted on town lines
coming into Windham. The town-wide speed
limit will be 30 mph unless otherwise posted, he
explained.
There are some roads in Windham that are
posted at 25 mph, that will stay that way, Lewis
noted, as the result of selectmen’s actions. Lewis
said he questions the validity of these reduced
speed limit signs, however, as no speed study
was ever conducted on these roads to prove a
reduced speed limit was warranted. “These areas
need to be revisited,” Lewis
recommended.
The new signs “give
notice as motorists enter the
Town of Windham,” Lewis
stated, adding that the police
department’s prosecutor,
Heather Newell, approves of
the new signage. Lewis also
said the town will need to
get permission from the New
Hampshire Department of
Transportation (DOT) for some
of the new signs, as they will
be posted along State-owned
roads.
Lewis stated that the new
signs fall into the frst category
of the three “E’s” of traffc
safety: Education, Engineering
and Enforcement.
Selectmen voted 4 to 0
in favor of posting the new
town-wide speed limit signs.
Agreeing to the plan were
Chairman Phil LoChiatto,
Vice-Chairman Kathleen
DiFruscia and Selectmen
Roger Hohenberger and
Ross McLeod. Selectman Al
Letizio, Jr. did not attend the
meeting where the vote was
taken.

Cub Scout Pack 25 ‘Carves’ Out the Year
submitted by Beth Knight
On Friday, September 13 Pelham Cub Scout
Pack 25 began ‘carving’ out the activities for the
season and kicked off their new scouting year
with Pelham’s own master carver Charles E. Dick.
Mr. Dick has been carving beautiful treasures for
many years. He volunteers his time showing off
his beautiful art to many of the local organizations
in our town and outside of Pelham as well. At our
gathering he brought with him a chess set, a cane,
and even awarded 12 boys with hand carved
Boston sports plaques. He demonstrated his
carving talent to the boys and let all the boys that
have already earned their whittling chip award to
carve whales into ivory soap with a butter knife.
The boys thought this was wonderful. Even the
boys that hadn’t earned their whittling chip award
were amazed at how well our other boys did with
their whales. And amazed at the talent that Mr.
Dick had, some of them didn’t believe that he had
hand carved the sports plaques.
That same weekend we also enjoyed marching
in the Pelham Old Home Day parade, pushing our
Chuckwagon. Chuckwagon is an event held in
May where the boys push the wagon through the
trails of a Cub Scout forest stopping at different
stations learning and demonstrating talents like
knot tying, bicycle safety, world conservation,
obstacle course, golf, frst aid, rockets (just to
name a few).
Right now we are ‘carving’ out our year! New
Scouts are always welcome to join our Pack at
anytime during the year.
Cub Scouts is for boys ages 7-10, Grades
1-5! Even after our year has begun in September
we always welcome new boys. All new scouts
will earn the Bobcat badge then join in on his
appropriate age group. Dens: Tiger-Age 7,
Grade 1, Wolf-Age 8, Grade 2, Bear-Age 9,
Grade 3, Webelos Age 10, Grades 4 and 5.
We always encourage our families to join us
in just about everything we do. Siblings (even
girls) are welcome to join us, of course parents,
grandparents too. You can do as much or as little
as you desire. We encourage and welcome you to
try it all. Don’t think because you are in another
activity/sports you can’t do Scouts. Most, if not
all, of our scouts participate in so many other
activities.
Cub Scouts is about doing your best while
having fun. Enjoying time at your Den meetings,
Pack 25 monthly meetings, ‘go see it,’ Pine Wood
Derby, Blue and Gold Banquet, ‘Help other
people’ like service projects and projects for
our hometown and our neighbors. We explore,
hike, camp, fsh, do crafts, activities and projects,
visit cool places like corn mazes, police and fre
stations, historical
places. We build
strong character while
learning duty, honor,
respect, courage and
so much more ...
There is no end to our
fun! Fishing Derby,
Monster Trucks, Tombs,
Armory, Hiking, Winter

Residents Envision Economic Growth,
But High Taxes Keep Plans at Bay
submitted by Al Letizio, Jr.
When considering economic development as an aid to reducing our residential tax burden, how does
Windham compare to other towns? Recently the Windham Economic Development Committee surveyed
its residents on a variety of economic issues. One question asked residents to identify which area towns
they’d like to see a “fully developed Windham” most look like. Windham residents picked Bedford, NH
and Andover MA. Currently, Windham falls far behind Bedford and Andover when it comes to economic
development.
There is signifcant room for Windham to grow its economic base to provide relief to the residential
tax burden. Our comparable
neighbors have done so effectively,
offering relief to residents while
maintaining a beautiful New
England town environment.

Development Committee –

Protecting Your Home and Family
When the Power Goes Out - and Stays Out
(BPT) - Super storms like Sandy, major
foods in Colorado and other natural
disasters remind us of the devastating
impact a long-term power outage can
have on a community. But it doesn’t take
a major disaster to take down the power
- and make life diffcult - for days. A
basic winter storm with heavy snow and
ice can do the trick, too.
“Extended power loss in the wake
of a storm or natural disaster can be as
damaging and threatening as the disaster
itself,” cautions Ed Del Grande, a master
contractor and nationally syndicated
home improvement expert. “Food spoil-
ing in the refrigerator or an uncomfort-
able temperature in your home may
be the least of your worries. When the
power’s out, your home’s sump pump
won’t work and could cause fooding.
A home-based business could lose im-
portant data and days of operations. And
family members with special needs may
be especially affected.
With hurricane season in full swing
and winter rapidly approaching, it makes
sense to prepare your home and family
to face a potential power outage. The experts at
Kohler Generators offer some advice:
* Have a plan that covers how you will evacu-
ate your home and neighborhood, if necessary, an
established meeting place if you lose contact with
loved ones, and a list of important phone numbers
such as doctors, family members, etc.
* Prepare an emergency kit using a backpack
or a large plastic bucket with a lid. Stock it with
three days’ worth of nonperishable food and
water, a fashlight with extra batteries, a battery-
powered or hand-cranked radio, battery-powered
clock, frst aid kit, cash, medications and a CD or
USB drive that contains digital copies of important
documents. Store your kit in a secure location that
you can get to easily in case of emergency.
* If you’re ordered to evacuate, do so immedi-
ately. If you’re able to ride out the storm in your
home, turn off and/or unplug major appliances
like water heaters, stoves and air condition-
ing units. Unplug electronics like TVs and PCs,
microwaves and stereos. This will help prevent
damage to appliances and avoid overloading the
system when the power comes back on. Leave
just one light on so you’ll know when the power
is restored.
* Never connect a portable generator directly
into the electrical system of your home; electric-
ity could fow backward into the power lines,
endangering lives. Plug appliances directly into a
portable generator using properly rated extension
cords. Make sure the portable generator is prop-
erly vented to avoid the risk of carbon monoxide
poisoning. Never bring a portable generator into
your home, garage or on a porch. Keep
it outside with plenty of ventilation at all
times.
* To keep your home up-and-running
during a power outage, consider per-
manently installing a standby generator
before trouble arrives. While portable
generators can power one or two appli-
ances, a standby generator can supply
power for your whole house. A profes-
sional installer can place a standby gen-
erator outside your home; it looks simi-
lar to a central air conditioning unit and
runs on natural gas or propane, using
existing gas lines. When the power goes
out, the standby generator automatically
turns on to power critical and sophisti-
cated appliances and systems such as
heating and cooling, lights, refrigerators,
sump pumps and home security systems.
Kohler, a leading manufacturer of
automatic standby generators, advises
homeowners considering a standby
generator to:
* Look for a unit that offers clean,
consistent power and can handle
heavy loads. A generator that produces
sub-standard power could damage sophisticated
electronics like HD TVs, stereos and computers. A
generator that struggles to handle heavy loads will
be less effcient and may even fail in a pinch.
* Choose a unit that can power up quickly,
allowing you to keep your home functioning
without interruption. A unit that powers up slowly
may only handle a few circuits at a time, forcing
you to choose between which essential appliance
or system you’ll power up frst.
* Consider appearance, since a standby unit
sits outside the home. Also, look for a unit that
is corrosion-resistant - an especially important
consideration for homes near water.
To learn more about standby power and to get
an idea of the size generator your home would
need, visit www.KOHLERGenerators.com.

Top Winterizing Tasks for Your Home
Indoor Air Quality: What You Can’t See Can Hurt You
(BPT) - If you shudder at the thought of
shivering through another frigid winter,
building industry experts say now is the
time to consider winterizing your home.
Several simple and cost-effective measures
can yield both immediate and long-term
benefts.
While instinct may prod you to increase
the heat during winter and keep your
home toasty all day long, that’s not always
cost-effective. Investing in a program-
mable thermostat allows you to adjust the
temperature remotely, lowering the setting
when the house is empty, and save money
in the process. Modern thermostats let you
monitor the indoor temperature of your
home remotely via your smartphone or
online. By keeping the temperature low
when no one is home and programming
the thermostat to increase the temperature
when everyone arrives home, you could notice a 10
percent drop in your heating costs.
Fall is also an ideal time to ensure your furnace
is functioning optimally. Schedule an appointment
for a professional to inspect and clean your furnace
once a year. By doing so, you’ll help your furnace
function more effectively and last longer.
If ice damming on the roof is an annual problem,
consider taking measures to completely stop dams
from forming. Major damage can result from ice
damming, so it’s never too early to start thinking
about a long-term solution. Ice damming occurs
when warm, indoor air escaping through the roof
melts snow on the shingles. The water then refreez-
es as it runs off the roof, creating a barrier of ice at
the edge. Shovelling snow or chipping ice away can
threaten life, limb and roof, so it’s best to consider
more permanent solutions.
While caulking or weather-stripping can help
address the gaps allowing the air to escape,
the U.S. Department of Energy’s Home
Energy Saver website says that proper air
sealing, insulation and attic venting are the
best methods to stop ice damming from
occurring. Spray foam insulation is one
modern material that both insulates and
seals to stop ice damming. Installed by
professionals, spray foam insulation, like
that available from Icynene, works well in
all climates to completely seal the build-
ing, flling every gap to stop air leakage
and stop ice dams from forming.
As a long-term solution, spray foam
insulation helps maintain a comfortable
temperature year round while helping
to control monthly heating and cooling
expenses. Thanks to spray foam insulation’s
air-sealing qualities, homeowners can
reduce the size of their heating and cooling
equipment since less effort is required to heat or
cool the home, according to InsulationSmart.com.
While air leakage can cause energy bills to sky-
rocket and ice damming to occur, a well-insulated
home and economical winterizing can help you get
through the cold winter months. Learn the fve easy
steps to choosing the right insulation by visiting
icynene.com.
(BPT) - The Environmental Protection Agency has named indoor
air quality as one of the top fve environmental risks to public
health citing research that indoor air may be up to 100 times more
polluted than the air outside. With Americans spending 90 percent
of their time indoors, purifying indoor air is paramount to keeping
families healthy - especially those with family members suffering
from asthma and allergies.
“Poor indoor air quality has been linked to a host of health issues
such as headaches, dry eyes, nasal congestion, nausea, fatigue,
heart disease and chronic respiratory disease,” says Chris Chase,
product marketing manager at Aprilaire. “For individuals that suffer
from asthma or allergies, air
particles such as pollen, dust
and dust mites are known
triggers for asthma attacks and
allergic reactions.”
More than 25 million Ameri-
cans have been diagnosed with
asthma and 50 million suffer
from allergies. Dust alone is
comprised of dead insects,
dust mites, mold spores, pol-
len, dander, skin fakes and
other particulates that can be
harmful to health. Controlling
indoor air quality can provide
relief for asthma and allergy
sufferers and protect your fam-
ily from getting sick. You can
improve indoor air quality with
two simple steps:
* Prevent irritants from
entering the house. Take
measures to make sure dust,
dirt and other pollutants are
prevented from entering the
house. Simple activities like
removing shoes before enter-
ing the household, closing
windows during high pollen
days and not allowing smoking indoors help keep dirt and other irritants from
entering the household.
* Install a whole-home air purification system. A whole-home air purifcation
system is installed as part of the central heating and cooling system to capture
and eliminate airborne contaminants. Whole-home air purifcation systems
remove up to 98 percent of airborne contaminants down to one micron in size
and are 40 times more effcient than a standard furnace flter. Each time the air
system runs, the whole-home air purifcation system removes dust, dust mites,
pet dander, mold spores, pollen, viruses, fungi, mold and other dangerous sub-
stances from the air throughout the entire home, rather than just the air in the
immediate vicinity like a portable air cleaner.
Other important considerations include maintaining humidity levels as well
as proper ventilation; especially if your home is newer or has been recently
updated with tighter materials for more energy effciency.
For more information on whole-home air purifcation and total control of your
indoor air quality, visit www.aprilaire.com. You can also

Gone But Not Forgotten -
Wilkins Triplets Memorial Celebrated
by Karen Plumley
On Thursday, September 26 a dedication ceremony was held on
the lawn near the newly constructed Wilkins Memorial at Pelham
Memorial School. Consisting of a well-manicured area at the left
side of the school, the Memorial also has a granite bench, engravings
of the triplets’ names - Kyle, Patrick and Matthew, and three young
trees representing each of these three amazing boys whose lives were
cut short all too soon by the devastating disease known as Becker’s
Muscular Dystrophy. None of them lived to see there 22nd birthday.
Diagnosed at the unusually young age of 5, Kyle, Patrick, and
Matthew were quickly confned to wheelchairs by the time they were
teenagers and needed constant care. This care included corrective
procedures such as hip replacements, spinal surgery, and calf
tendon release surgery. The family hired health assistants to
help them, especially at night when the boys were the most
uncomfortable. In addition, their home had to be equipped
with the appropriate ramps and lifts necessary for the boys to get
around.
PMS Principal Secor, who spoke at the ceremony, hailed
the triplets as models of
courage, love and kindness
and described the Wilkins
Memorial as “a refection
of what a small town can
accomplish and a visual
reminder of what it means
to be courageous” in the
face of extreme diffculty.
The boys’ dad, Ray
Wilkins, is a long-time
maintenance employee of
the Pelham School District
and their mom Lisa is a
teacher. Many benefts
such as spaghetti suppers
and talent shows were
held over the years at
Pelham High School
in order to help relieve
some of the fnancial
burden of the Wilkins
family. John Costa,
a math teacher and
personal friend of Ray
would often organize
these events, and in
many cases collected
donations adding up
to over $3,000. Costa
spoke at the ceremony as
well, along with Pelham
Good Neighbor Fund’s
Frank Sullivan and Ray’s
younger brother Tommy.
Ray and Lisa were in
attendance of course,
along with a large crowd
of friends, relatives,
teachers, students and
residents who all came
to pay their respects
and celebrate the boys’
lives. Pelham Memorial
music teacher Jason Pratt
opened the ceremony
with live music and
dedication organizer
Natasha Goyette spoke a
few words of introduction before turning the mike over to the other
presenters. At the emotional conclusion of the ceremony, Ray and
Lisa made the dedication offcial by walking over to the bench and
lighting three white candles in memory of their children while Jason
Pratt played the guitar.
Although the Wilkins reside in Chelmsford, Ray was raised in
Pelham along with his six younger siblings and became a custodian
for the schools right out of high school. According to Natasha
Goyette whose idea for a memorial has fnally been realized, she
knew Ray when she attended the Pelham schools and described
him as a very sweet man with an incredibly loving family. She also
thanked the many businesses, charitable groups and people who
helped to make the Memorial and the dedication ceremony a reality,
including Boyden Landscaping, the Good Neighbor Fund, Pelham
ACES and several generous donations from residents of Pelham and
Chelmsford.

Governor Hassan’s visit
began with breakfast in
the Media Center and a
presentation of what WHS
has accomplished in the
past fve years. Principal
Kaplan highlighted the
initiatives of the high
school and how technology
is integrated with learning
at all levels. In addition
to technology, Kaplan was
sure to highlight the high
school staff. “We have
a staff that is made up of
some of the best educators
in the state, in the region,
and … we’ve had four of
our teachers selected as
teacher of the year in their
content areas ... I’ve been at
three other schools and I’ve
never seen this happen,” said Mr. Kaplan.
Students have thrived in Windham High School’s fast-
paced, intense environment. With only two graduating
classes, alumni have been accepted to Brown, Yale,
Duke, Johns Hopkins, Dartmouth, and other prestigious
institutions said Principal Kaplan. In his presentation
to the Executive Council, Mr. Kaplan told of the near
90 percent participation rate between extracurricular
activities and athletics. In three different sports, athletes
have gone to championships and the Concert Band
has received high honors at national festivals in New
York and Chicago. Students also have the opportunity
to participate in individualized Extended Learning
Opportunities, starting feldwork in high school through
independent studies and internships.
Beyond these numerous accomplishments, Principal
Kaplan put special emphasis on Windham High School’s
STEM programs. STEM has been an initiative of the state
of New Hampshire, focusing on Science, Technology,
Engineering, and Mathematics. At Windham High, these
initiatives have been put to the test. “Education should
be modeling real world experience and a lot of what
our students are doing are some very advanced feld
work and it’s that feld work that makes the classroom
come alive,” explained Kaplan. In the auditorium after
Governor Hassan’s tour of the school a ceremony took
place where three programs were highlighted. Mrs.
Bernasconi, named 2012 New Hampshire Teacher of the
Year, was recognized with her Marine Biology Quiz Bowl
team. In addition, the WHS Robotics Team and the JAG
SAT program both received offcial commendations.
The Robotics Team, run by Mr. Scott Kukshtel, ranks
top 36 globally, having participated in competitions
across the nation. JAG SAT is a physics program run
by Mr. Patrick Kaplo; last year they sent a satellite into
space that took photos before coming back down and
landing off the coast of Kittery, ME. Mr. Kaplo has
aspirations for three additional satellite launches, and
even bigger projects to come. Assistant Principal Bob
Dawson commented that sometimes schools focus so
much on sports that the STEM programs are left with little
recognition. When the school had the chance to choose
which programs would receive commendations, “It
seemed like a real natural ft [to choose STEM programs]
for the kind of recognition that they certainly deserve and
sometimes that they don’t get enough of,” said Dawson.
Governor Hassan was impressed with the programs at
Windham High School and pleased with the passionate
student initiative. After the commendation ceremony
she said that she is excited for the future, knowing the
country is in good hands with young people like the
students at Windham High leading the way.

Bright Future - continued from front page
by Jillian DiPersio, Windham High School Intern
Carnegie Hall is considered the world’s most
prestigious place to perform. Luciano Pavarotti, Yo-Yo
Ma, Leonard Bernstein, the Beatles, and Louis Armstrong
among countless others of the world’s greatest musicians
have graced the stage at Carnegie Hall. Now the
Windham High School Concert Band prepares to add
their name to the list and continue the prevailing tradition
of excellence in that historic New York City concert hall.
In the past four years of Windham High School’s
operation, the Concert Band has made enormous
strides virtually unknown to the music world. In April
2012 they made their debut in New York at the World
Strides Heritage Festival, performing at Riverside Church
and placing as the top group in the festival, receiving
numerous awards. In March 2013 they entered the next
level, performing at the World Strides Heritage Festival
of Gold in Chicago at Orchestra Hall, also receiving the
highest score and being selected from their division to
play in the encore concert.
In April 2014, the band will yet again raise the
bar, performing in the National Band and Orchestra
Invitational Music Festival at Carnegie Hall. This
festival highlights the best ensembles nation-wide, each
ensemble sending in a recording that is evaluated by a
panel of adjudicators. “Every ensemble is put on the
same playing feld where their applications and audition
recordings are the only pieces that are evaluated,”
explained Band Director Jared Cassedy. “There were
hundreds and hundreds of tapes sent in from around the
nation. From there, all the groups that scored a 95 or
higher got put into a pool ... Over 400 groups got a 95 or
higher. And then, from there, they whittle it down to the
top ten or ffteen.” The Windham High School Concert
Band received a score of 98.7, placing among the top
ffteen orchestras and concert bands in the nation.
The students in the Concert Band are overjoyed to see
the results of their hard work. Sophomore Kaley Missert
said that, after Mr. Cassedy told the band that they were
accepted to the Festival at Carnegie Hall, “I just freaked
out! I was like ‘Oh my gosh I can’t believe we’re going
to Carnegie Hall!’ And I started tearing up. It was so
emotional.” Similarly, senior Joseph Zannoni says it feels
wonderful to be able to share the excitement with fellow
musicians with whom he has become so close. “We’re
like a family,” he said.
“To have an ensemble represent not only the school
but the state and the region is overwhelming…This is a
dream come true for the ensemble and for myself as a
music educator,” said Mr. Cassedy. His goal is to make
it possible for every Concert Band student to attend this
prestigious festival and once in a lifetime experience. The
Windham Musical Arts Association will be organizing
fundraisers throughout the year to help defer costs. They
ask that you will help support them at events like the
upcoming mattress fundraiser and at the Craft Fair. There
will be more information as these events approach.
When addressing his band, Mr. Cassedy commented
that their acceptance into the Festival at Carnegie Hall “is
a testimony to your dedication and support for making
our program the absolute best it can be.” Year after
year, the incredible passion and devotion displayed by
these young musicians and their director has exceeded
expectation. There is perhaps no greater testimony to this
hard work than the opportunity to stand alongside great
musicians of the past and future at Carnegie Hall.

Children’s Book Group at the Pelham
Library. Miss Debbie and the Pelham
Public Library are pleased to announce
the return of our Children’s Book Club,
“Tuesdays with Stories.” The club meets on the
second Tuesday of every month, and our frst
meeting will be held from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. This
club is geared toward independent readers in
grades 2 and up who enjoy reading for fun and
who would love a chance to talk over a good story
with their peers. At each meeting we will explore
books based on the theme for that month. The
children will then pick out a book at their reading
level that they are interested in reading over the
next month. Each reader will also be given a
simple book review form for their reads. Then at
our next meeting we will discuss the books read
and after choosing our next month’s book, we will
do an activity related to the theme for that month.
The theme for October is “Eeek!” Scary books
will be shared and then we will create some scary,
spooky, eerie, funny jack-o-lanterns! Contact Miss
Debbie at dlaffond@pelhamweb.com or call the

No More Bids Received
for Skate Park Equipment
by Barbara O’Brien
After further attempts to garner more interest in the
sale of Windham’s skate park equipment, selectmen
fnally agreed to sell a portion of it to the Town of
Salem. Salem’s bid was initially rejected, but looked
much better to Windham offcials when little other
interest was shown.
Windham’s skate park, located in the town-owned
Griffn Park, was closed just over a year ago, due
to problems with some users violating regulations,
including those pertaining to the use of vulgar
language, littering and patrons’ refusal to comply
with the park’s mandated use of safety helmets.
Repeated attempts to improve the situation met with
failure and frustration.
When no other solution appeared to be feasible,
selectmen decided, this past spring, to close the
facility permanently and to sell off the equipment.
Soliciting sealed bids was the frst attempt to sell the
equipment; a method which generated little interest
and low bids. Selectmen then tried advertising
the equipment on-line. That tact also drew little
attention.
The skate park had been in operation for
approximately 10 years when it was closed in
September of 2012, costing a signifcant amount of
money over the long haul. Selectmen noted that
the Town of Hudson had also recently shut down its
skate park.
The Town of Salem will not be taking all the
equipment, however, offering to buy only three
ramps at a total cost of $750. Selectmen had
hoped to get rid of everything, including the fencing
surrounding the skate park, in one fell swoop.
Selectman Al Letizio did say, however, that he was
aware of a group in Charlestown, Massachusetts that
might be interested in the remaining equipment.
Letizio also said there might be a local resident
who would be willing to haul away the leftover
equipment as a favor to the town, but he was
uncertain if that offer was still in place.
In regard to 10 sheets of wood that had been
purchased for future use in Windham’s skate park,
but had ultimately disappeared, Assistant Town
Administrator Dana Call said the person who had
stored them in his facility has since paid Windham
for the value ($1,500) of the materials.
New Flags Donated by Selectman;
First Windham Flag Among Them
by Barbara O’Brien
Windham Selectman Al Letizio, Jr. noticed that
the fags on display in the meeting room of the
town’s community development building were
getting “a little old and a little tattered” and he and
his wife, Pattie, decided to remedy the situation.
According to Letizio, the American and New
Hampshire fags that were set up in a corner of the
meeting room were at least 25 to 30 years old and
had begun to show their age. Letizio also said he
didn’t like the placement of the fags and wanted
them displayed in “a more prominent location.” “I
didn’t like seeing them stuck in a corner,” he said.
As a result, the Letizios not only donated
new American and New Hampshire fags, they
also had the town seal made into the frst fag
of its kind since Windham was incorporated in
1743. Displayed more prominently than their
predecessors, the three fags now grace the area
behind the table where selectmen and other town
offcials hold their meetings. The frst pledge of
allegiance to the new American fag was recited on
Monday, September 23, 2013.
As for the two old fags, Letizio said, “They did
their job and are now being retired.” Before they
are placed in the town museum, however, they will
fy high one more time. Letizio explained that
two of his children are currently on active military
duty and will be playing a part in the retirement of
the fags. Letizio’s son, who is a Navy pilot, will
be fying the American fag “covertly” over the
Town of Windham, while the New Hampshire fag
will be fown over Camp Pendleton in California,
where Letizio’s daughter is stationed. Both fags
will then be professionally cleaned, then donated
to the local museum.
Selectmen unanimously accepted the donation
from the Letizios and expressed appreciation for
their thoughtfulness and generosity.
Meet Mr. Carville
by Chris Gamble, Pelham High School Intern
Pelham High School welcomes Mr. Douglas
Carville, originally from Maine, who has been an
educator for 33 years, most recently at Winslow
High School. Before coming to Pelham, he was
Principal at Winslow High for nine years. In
college he had not planned on being an educator.
However, when he found himself needing
elective credits, educational classes surfaced. He
fnished his degree in Plant and Soil Sciences
with a minor in education from the University
of Maine. At Orono, he played third base for
the Black Bears. After college he began his
career as an educator. When asked how he got
involved in education Carville replied, “It just
happened,” but he readily admitted that it was
not too much of a surprise that he entered the
feld of education since his family has a long
history as educators.
Last spring he and his wife were ready to
leave Maine because his sons were grown and
he believed it was time to move on. He stated
that when he frst came to Pelham he liked that
it was a small town and very similar to Winslow.
He expressed a positive feeling after the frst
interview with the leadership team at Pelham
High School saying, “It seems like a good place to
be.” Overall, Carville seems excited to be at PHS.
His main goals for this year are to become more
familiar with the Pelham community, students,
and staff. He wants to learn about the challenges
that Pelham may have and work together to
address them.

Four years ago, the Pelham High School Band had
dwindled to a handful of students. The band uniforms
gathered dust in the closet. The football games went
forward unaccompanied - the only music supplied by air
horns and cheers.
Into this somewhat dismal situation stepped a bright new
music teacher when he joined the PHS faculty in the fall of
2010. Joe Mundy was a recent graduate of Michigan State
University who had participated in the Big 10 Marching
Band and was used to enthusiastic support of this well-
loved and community-enhancing organization.
“I knew what the kids were missing,” says Mundy. “And I
hoped I’d be able to bring some life back into the program.”
And whether it’s because Mundy is young and relatable,
because of his excellent teaching and coaching skills, or
maybe just because he couldn’t imagine it any other way,
the band and other music programs he leads began to grow.
Now, in the fall of 2013, the band consists of 45 members.
These hard-working, dedicated students march at every
home football game, participate in musical competitions,
and various PHS musical groups are common fxtures at
community events.
All this growth is wonderful for the morale of the students
and an asset to the community. However, with such a large
group, the expenses have outpaced the budget, leading
to the need for a number of fundraisers. On Saturday,
September 21, the PHS Music Program sponsored a
mattress sale in the PHS gym – now an annual event that
brings in about $1,500 to the program.
Another event is the upcoming community dinner called
“A Taste of Italy.” This dinner will be held on October 17
from 6 to 8 p.m. at St. Patrick’s Clubhouse, 12 Main St.,
Pelham. Dinner will feature the choice of Chicken Picatta
or Chicken Parmesan, pasta with marinara sauce, garden
salad with balsamic vinaigrette, bread and butter, dessert,
and a drink. And to make the evening special, small groups
of PHS music students will perform a variety of musical
selections for the diners to enjoy as they eat their dinners.
This May, the PHS Music students will be traveling to
Williamsburg, VA to attend clinics and workshops with
the faculty at the College of William and Mary, participate
in a “Music in the Parks” festival at Busch Garden Theme
Park at which they’ll receive professional feedback on
their performance, and enjoy many activities and visits to
historic sites. The proceeds of the community dinner will
be applied toward the cost of this trip.
Future opportunities for the community to enjoy listening
to the PHS Music Program students include the following
events:
• PHS Football home games at 7 p.m. on Friday, October 4
and 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 19 at the Harris Family
Track and Field behind Pelham Elementary School
• Pelham’s Festival of Trees on Saturday, December 7 from
noon to 5:30 p.m. at Sherburne Hall
• PHS Winter Concert on Thursday, December 19 at 7 p.m.

Growing Pelham High School Music
Program Steps Up Fundraising Efforts
by Barbara O’Brien
According to the members of Windham’s Economic
Development Committee (WEDC), the lack of a municipal
water source is perceived as a drawback for additional
commercial development in this town of nearly 16,000
residents.
According to Ralph Valentine, who chairs the WEDC’s
infrastructure sub-committee, the town’s community
development department is in the process of proposing
an estimated $25,000 to $35,000 study to determine the
feasibility of installing a municipal water system in relevant
sections of Windham. “We’re in the process of trying to
get the word out,” Valentine said, noting that plans are to
include the money for the study in the 2014 town budget.
Valentine talked about bringing in “outside water” to
Windham, mentioning Derry and Salem, New Hampshire
as possibilities. The study would evaluate the feasibility
of such a system, estimate fow demands and pipe line
connectivity requirements, Valentine explained. The study
would also identify ways in which the project could be
funded, he said.
According to Valentine, the existence of a municipal
water system in Windham would bring down the cost
of construction and development costs and could also
eventually decrease the tax burden on residential property
owners. A municipal water system would also beneft local
lakes and area recreational areas, Valentine noted.
Currently, only eight percent of Windham’s taxes are
generated from commercial entities. This compares with
Bedford, New Hampshire, which has an 18 percent tax-
base and Andover, Massachusetts, with a commercial
tax-base of 20 percent. Based on a survey previously
conducted by the WEDC, Bedford and Andover are the
two towns that Windham residents would like “a fully
developed Windham” to resemble.
In 2005, when the Windham Master Plan was updated,
seven percent of the town was commercially developed.
That percentage has only risen by one percent in the past
eight years. The goal in the master plan is to reach 10
percent commercial development by the year 2015.
Based on a recent “Build-Out” report analyzing
Windham’s tax-base, further development of the
commercial areas of town could deliver an additional
$5 million in tax dollars to Windham, thereby easing
the burden on residential homeowners. “If we had our
commercial base better developed today, your tax bill could
be reduced by 12 percent,” according to a statement made
by committee members. For example, if an annual tax bill
is currently $7,500, that bill could potentially be reduced
by $900 to $6,600.
The overall goal of the Windham Economic Development
Committee is to enhance the vitality of the local economy
in order to balance the tax-base for all Windham residents.
Plans are to present additional details regarding the
proposed municipal water feasibility study during the next
few weeks. This proposal does not include a municipal
sewer proposal.
Municipal Water Study Being Proposed
by Barbara O’Brien
Although the cost is a little more
expensive, Windham Selectmen have
agreed to contract for electricity that is
50 percent “greener” than that which is
less environmentally friendly.
The issue of electricity supply came
up during a selectmen’s meeting last
month, as board members began
preparing for 2014 town budget
discussions. Looking for alternatives
to the traditional energy supply has
been encouraged by the Local Energy
Council (LEC), making Windham one
of only a few communities in New
Hampshire considering this change.
When initiating the discussion,
Assistant Town Administrator and
Financial Director Dana Call asked the
basic question of “How green do we
want to be?” The “greener” the source
of energy, the higher the cost, Call
explained. However, the greener the
energy, the less of a negative impact it
has on the environment.
According to statistics presented
during the discussion, the cost of
electricity through Public Service of
New Hampshire this year is .068 cents
per kilowatt hour. That cost is expected
to climb to .086 cents per kilowatt
hour next year. To go with a different
company for its electricity could mean
a price of .078 cents per kilowatt hour
for a 50 percent greener supply. The
cost of a 100 percent greener supply
of electricity would be .080 cents per
kilowatt hour.
Call did comment, however, that
the market is “extremely volatile”
right now and PSNH could wind up
dropping its cost for electricity.
Electricity that is 50 percent greener
still contains fve percent fossil fuels,
while 100 percent greener electricity
is generated entirely by renewable
sources. For Windham, the total
expense of going with 50 percent
greener electricity for the next 12
months would be $715, while the
added cost of changing to 100 percent
greener electricity would add a total of
$1,788 to next year’s bill.
On a vote of 4 to 0, selectmen voted
to approve a 12-month contract with
Freedom Energy Logistics at a cost of
.078 cents per kilowatt hour for a 50
percent greener electric supply. Voting
in favor were Chairman Phil LoChiatto,
Vice-Chairman Kathleen DiFruscia and
Selectmen Ross McLeod and Roger
Hohenberger. Selectman Al Letizio, Jr.
did not attend the meeting where the
vote was taken.
In other business, board members
approved a contract for propane at a
cost of $1.62 per gallon (in conjunction
with the school district). Last year’s
propane cost was $1.79 per gallon. A
contract was also approved for heating
oil at $3.48 per gallon. Last year’s
cost was $3.19 per gallon for heating
oil. Both the propane and heating oil
contracts are with Palmer Gas and Oil.
Negotiations for diesel fuel for the fre
and highway departments (an estimated
annual cost of about $70,000) were
still in the process.
Selectmen Agree to 50%

Windham Boys Soccer Squad
Making Strong Case for a Repeat
by Jacob Gagnon
The Windham High School Boys Soccer
team understands what it takes to win it all:
The hard work put in at practice and in the
offseason, the trust between teammates and
the will to overcome any obstacles that lie
before them and their hopes of repeating as
Division II Champions.
Thus far in the 2013 season, Windham
holds a record of 7-1 and has, once again,
wedged themselves into the title picture. The
Jaguars sole loss of the season came against
Souhegan High School, 2-1, on September
3. Since that defeat, Windham has won six
games in a row.
On Wednesday, September 25, the Jaguars
hosted perennial contenders in Hollis
Brookline High School. In the Championship
Final last season, Windham defeated Hollis
Brookline in a triple-overtime shootout to
claim the Division II Championship. While
this regular season contest was not nearly as
dramatic as their title match last season, it was
still a hard-fought contest.
Hollis-Brookline also
had only a single loss on
the year heading into their
match against Windham.
The Cavaliers had fallen
to Portsmouth, 2-0, on
September 21.
With 25:51 remaining
in the frst half, the Jaguars
struck frst as senior Joe Forti
scored off of a rebound from
a shot taken by junior David
Carbonello. Windham
continued to push through
the Cavaliers’ defense, but
was unable to score again in
the frst half.
Less than two minutes into
the second half, the Jaguars scored again on a
goal from Carbonello following a breakaway.
The Cavaliers struck back with a score fve
minutes later on a penalty kick to cut the lead
in half. Despite gaining momentum following
the goal, Windham senior Tyler Masone
halted their comeback with a Jaguar score at
the midway point in the half.
Senior James Baiguy, a hero in the
championship game shootout last season,
once again proved to be a thorn in the
Cavaliers’ side as he scored from a corner to
push his team further ahead. Hollis Brookline
was able to score one more time, once again
cutting the lead in half, but Windham kept
strong and held on for the well-deserved
victory.
“Today we played pretty well, but we could
be better. I don’t think they’re
satisfed,” said Head Coach Mike
Hachey. “This was a playoff-caliber
game with Hollis and to have a
game that really tests you like this midway
through the season lets you check out where
things are in your progress towards the
playoffs.”
While Hachey believes his team will
continue to develop, he was pleased with
the way they handled the pressure that the
Cavaliers were able to apply at certain points
in the game. “I do like the way my guys
responded to it, the way they naturally moved
to where they needed to be to absorb that
pressure. So the attitude and effort and the
mental aspect was there,” said Hachey.
Senior Andrew Lowman had fve goals and
nine assists going into the Hollis Brookline
game while Carbonello has recorded eleven
goals and three assists through the frst
seven games for Windham. “Those are
some impressive stats. But it’s not all of our
offense. Everyone’s been spreading it out,”
said Hachey. “My starting core up through
the middle and up top has just been pretty
dominant.”
On Friday, September 27, Windham
travelled to the home of the undefeated Oyster
River High School. It was another close
contest with the Jaguars fnishing out on top,
2-1. The last month has showcased a team
that Hachey believes he can lead, once again,
to a title.
“It’s not about individual goals or playing
time, it’s not about where you play, it’s
about how the team does as a team. We
have agreed that we have to continue to get
better,” said Hachey. “They want to win a
championship.”

Razorback Game Recaps
submitted by Paul Leonard
Razorbacks 34 - Screaming Eagles 20
The 8th Grade Razorbacks were put to the test in a match-up of undefeated teams
under the lights at Muldoon Park in Pelham last Sunday. With both teams coming
in at 3-0, it was the Eagles striking frst after a Razorbacks turnover and taking a 6-0
lead on a nice drive. The Razorbacks struck back on their next drive as it was Austin
Wentzel fring a strike to Ty Longo down the left side line for a 40 yard touchdown
pass thanks to some great protection by Dylan Fortado, Jake Kirane, Austin Chausse,
Casey Burton, Robert Ryan and Tyler Mercier. This tied the game at 6-6 after the extra
point was not converted. Then for the remainder of the half, the Eagles had the edge
as the Razorbacks were not able to convert on their 4th down opportunities and the
Eagles did on theirs converting two big plays that lead to scores and a 20-6 Eagles
led as halftime approached. With the half winding down, it was Wentzel again, this
time fnding Cam Walsh down the right sideline with a beautiful pass over the Eagles
defender for a 50 yard catch and run to cut the lead to 20-12 at the half.
The second half was all Razorbacks as trailing at half on their home feld did not sit
well with the players. They came out on their opening drive fred up as Tyler Mercier
busted off some hard runs and it was the Wentzel/Walsh combo again for more
yards through the air. After getting the ball deep into Eagles territory it was time for
Diggy Lawson to follow the crushing blocks of Jack Moro, Justin Todd and Kirane as
he plowed into the end zone. Down by 2, Zach DeBay smoothly crushed the extra
point kick to tie the game at 20 as momentum was swinging. Then it was time for the
Razorbacks defense, who do not like giving up points, to step up and lead by Lawson,
Ryan, Nick Psareas, Brandon O’Grady and Todd, the Razorbacks did not allow the
Eagles to get deep into their territory. The Eagles also held as the tied game entered the
4th quarter. In the fourth quarter, the Eagles were wearing down and the Razorbacks
seemed to be getting stronger as Wentzel again went to the air with Mercier and
Walsh catching some passes and Ryan and Todd doing some running. Deep in Eagles
territory, Longo wanted to get in on the air attack and threw one up in the end zone
to Mercier who went up against two Eagle defenders to haul in a TD pass and give the
Razorbacks a 26-20 lead after trailing at one time 20-6. On the ensuing kickoff, the
Razorbacks forced a fumble and Mercier followed a great block by O’Grady to take
it down inside the Eagle 10 yard line late in the fourth quarter. Facing a 4th down
and 2 yards to go and not wanting to give the ball back to the Eagles; Longo darted
right behind Chris Barsalou and scored his second TD of the game. DeBay converted
another kick and the Razorbacks completed their comeback with 28 unanswered
points and the 34-20 fnal.
7th Grade Recap
The 7th Grade Razorbacks headed out on the road for the fourth straight week to
take on the gritty and hard-hitting Salem Rams. The Rams started out on offense with
a series of strong up the middle runs. They then switched gears with a big sweep that
took them into Razorback territory. This is when the Razorbacks defense tightened
up and started hitting back. Deven “LT” Debay fnally punched through the Ram
offensive line and forced a fumble that was recovered by fellow line mate Stephen
Cote.
The Razorbacks went on offense and it did not take long to get the engines revved.
Nathan Binette took the handoff, swept left and followed the thunderous blocks of
Brett Lindsay and AJ Caggianelli for 65 yards into the endzone.
Salem went back to the ground pounding the ball down the feld and into
Razorback territory. Again, the Razorbacks would turn to their defense to help swing
the momentum back their way. This time it was cornerback Thalan Berger coming
up with the big play when he stripped the Ram running back of the ball giving the
Razorbacks their second turnover of the game.
After several stalled drives by both offenses, the Razorbacks
were able to spring running back AJ Caggianelli free for the
second touchdown of the game. The blocking of Austin
Walsh, Nicholas Blake, Nicholas Parent, Riley Nutter, JJ Jepson
and Cody Stevens keyed the scoring play.
Salem struck back early in the third quarter on a well
executed pass play making the score 14-6 in favor of the
Razorbacks. From here on in the Razorbacks kicked it
into high gear and never looked back. Tommy Emrick hit
Binette on a screen pass that resulted in the third Razorback
touchdown thanks in large part to terrifc down feld blocking
by Lindsay, Caggianelli and Cameron Homsey.
The fnal two scores for the Razorbacks came on runs by
Emrick and Caggianelli putting the fnal score at 34-6 and
moving the 7th Grade Razorbacks to 5-0 on the season.
The scoring drives were led by the strong blocking of Owen
Haskins at center along with line mates Devyn Tucci, Reagan
Brunelle, Robbie Petrillo and Brandan Mercier.
Nick Torres, JJ Jepson, Jake Cragen and Cote all added strong
efforts across the defensive line causing fts for Salem the
entire game.
The Razorbacks take on the Keene Knights this Saturday
night, 6 p.m. at Muldoon Park in Pelham.
Thumbs Up? Thumbs Down? Thumbs Up? Thumbs Down?
“Thumbs down to the mold
and the water damage in the
Golden Brook School portable.
Thumbs down to the water
problems that are still not
fxed. There are leaking air
conditioners in the windows,
standing water on the roof, and
building walls and doors that
allow water in. Mold growth
will continue. Thumbs down
to the people who vote ‘no’ on
everything and have forced 200
kids and teachers every year to
be stuck in this unhealthy junky
thing.”
“Thumbs down. Thumbs way
down to the employees at the
Pelham recycling center. Our
outrageously priced tax dollars
do not pay you people to stand
around and smoke on town property during
hours of operation. Not only are you harming
yourselves, but you’re exposing the town’s
recycling patrons to your hazardous bad habit.
The worst part is that the manager of the recycling
center just stands by watching and doesn’t
reprimand them. Their smoking is not only
poisonous to patrons, but it also makes our town
look cheap and flthy to visitors from neighboring
towns that have stricter rules concerning this
issue.”
“Thumbs up to the people all around who do
not waste their times or lives doing drugs, drinking
liquor, or smoking. By not participating in such
hazardous and lethal activities you are showing
others that you are responsible and intelligent
enough to resist peer pressure and temptation
all around. These decisions to live responsibly
will pay off in the future both fnancially and
healthily. You have chosen a very successful path
for yourselves.”
“Thumbs down to the bike rider on the rail trail
pedestrian bridge on Sunday 9/8. You almost hit
my 3 year old daughter and me as well as the
people around us. I am deaf and my husband was
yelling to you that I couldn’t hear you. You were
out of control and clearly lack common courtesy
and respect for others. If you can’t ride your bike
in a safe controlled manner, then stay off that rail
trail before you seriously injure someone.”
“Thumbs up to Public Information Offcer
Robert Horne for explaining that large vehicles
like fre trucks can negotiate the new roundabout.
It is doing its job well, and is a much better
alternative to a light or stop sign. Here’s a
suggestion to people who complain about driving
their Suburban, Tahoe, Sequoia, etc. around it: try
downsizing your barge on wheels to something
smaller.”
“Thumbs up to Offcer Keenliside of the Pelham
Police Dept. for taking the time to assist us in
the installation of two infant car seats recently.
Offcer Keenliside showed great patience and
professionalism in assisting us with proper
installation, and now that the baby is here, it is so
reassuring to know that he will be well protected.
As new residents in Pelham, we feel fortunate
to have moved to a town where the safety and
welfare of even its littlest citizens is a priority.”
“Thumbs down to the BOS. Are you kidding
me? You ok’d all those changes at our PERC. I
wonder what will be going on that conveyor; do
you forget all the TVs and hazards that were on
it before, back in on those skinny lines again?
Where did this wasted money come from? Fire
Gaydos, then retire.”
“Thumbs up to the Windham Wolverines
new leadership. You are fnally running the
organization like an episode of Dance Moms. You
should all be proud!”
“Thumbs down to the Windham Wolverines.
You put together a contract for parents but where
is the checks and balances for the behavior of
Coaches and Board Members? The bullying by
the league to children and adults needs to stop.
This is supposed to be about the youth - not
adult egos! New policy is in order - and new
leadership! AYF take notice.”
“Thumbs down. How unfair! Try out for the
travel basketball team with no experience and
make the team? Others get downgraded to a
lower level? How could you choose someone
with no basketball experience, not even on a
recreation level and bump a
former teammate and crush his
self confdence?”
“Thumbs up. Two thumbs
up to PHS band and their great
presentation to the PES 3, 4,
and 5th graders last week!
Awesome, awesome job!”
“Thumbs up to the high
school students at Fellowship
Christian Academy for going
into the community and helping
people with any needs that
they have. They did a great
job and I’m glad they will continue to do that on
Wednesday to help anyone that has a need.”
“Thumbs down. It’s business as usual for the
school committee. You can be sure the 400k
rebate from the health account will be funneled
to the teacher’s union and the guys with books or
pencils. Nice try Dennis Senibaldi. But you’re
wasting your time. The teacher’s lackey’s, i.e., the
School Committee, has one mission in life. Pony
up taxpayers, it’s for the kids. Tee-hee. Gimme,
gimme, gimme.”
“Thumbs up: Oh good! So you have the
supplies. Then get your job done. I like and
maintain my view. School Board supplies you
with a raise and Lowe’s is having a special: Buy
One, Get One Free.”
“Thumbs down. We just built a beautiful, large
fre station. The Fire Chief is now saying that they
need another area to store extra equipment, and
that we need to pay that rent. We didn’t build
the building big enough for you to have plenty
of room? Now we have to spend more money
and rent a place so you can have more space to
keep your stuff? This town is way out of control
if we continue to do stuff like this. This is money
wasted when it can be used on our schools, the
recycling, all of that stuff. We could hire more
teachers. Instead, we are just letting the money go
out the window and wondering where it’s going.
Thank you for trying to get more money out of us,
Pelham Fire Department.”

(Just over the Pelham line on Rte 38)
or spending about $100,000 on it to do a major overhaul and stretch its life
span out for about 10 more years.
“There are multiple issues that need to be resolved,” Superintendent Winfried
Feneberg told school board members. “It’s complex. It’s a moving target. It is
not a static problem,” he said. “Nobody is asking anybody to make a decision
tonight.”
School board member Stephanie Wimmer said she wanted more information
about the school district’s other needs before making a decision. “We feel the
building is safe right now,” Wimmer said, adding that she feels there is time for
further investigation into the issue, before any decision is reached. “We need to
know what else is lurking out there,” she stated.
School board member Michelle Farrell agreed with Wimmer. “The portables
are just one piece of the puzzle,” she said. “There are major capacity issues
to be resolved. We need to address grades one through eight,” Farrell said. “I
don’t want to take away 10 (classrooms) and just add another 10 (classrooms).”
Board member Dennis Senibaldi, who has favored fxing up the existing
portable classrooms from the get-go, said he feels it’s a great idea to replace
them someday, but not now. “If we can get another four or fve years out of
it, we should do that,” Senibaldi said. “I’d rather spend a smaller amount of
money and get a few more years out of the portables.” It’s more important to
focus on the space crunch issue at this juncture, he added. Three of Windham’s
four public schools are over-crowded and getting worse.
School board member Jerome Rekart emphasized that something defnitely
needs to be done in the short-term to address the situation with the condition of
the portables. Winter is coming, Rekart said. “There are things that need to be
taken care of right now.”
Windham parent Danielle Stuttgart said she would feel better about keeping
the old portables in place if she knew they were consistently being assessed.
“We are doing everything we know to do,” Steel responded. “Maintenance of
that building is a priority,” Feneberg said. Any weak spots are being remedied as
soon as they are discovered, he stated.
Board chairman Michael Joanis said he is concerned about the fact that the
building is still settling and is, therefore, likely to continue deteriorating. The
classrooms are built on a cinder block and dirt foundation. Joanis said he
questioned the advisability of spending a lot of money to fx it up. “I see a
structural problem,” he said.
Long-time resident Bob Coole said he saw nothing wrong with fxing up the
old portables, so they could be used for another four or fve years. “Seeing as
we’ve already got them, fx them up and use them,” he said. Resident Kelly
McAllister said she was opposed to spending so much money just to replace 10
existing classrooms with 10 new classrooms. McAllister said she didn’t like the
“tit for tat” concept. “The school board needs to be more forward thinking,” she
said.
Saying that he thought it was time for board members to stop talking and
make a decision, Senibaldi made a motion to repair the envelope (siding) of the
existing portable. Estimates to replace the siding ran the gamut from $18,000 to
about $60,000. The motion died, however, due to the lack of a second.
After Senibaldi’s motion failed to generate any support, Barodi was instructed
to begin an intense structural assessment of the existing modular classrooms
at Golden Brook School. The topic will, most assuredly, be raised again. The
school board will hold its next meeting on Thursday, October 10 at 7 p.m. in the
cafeteria at Windham Middle School.
that there was nothing suspicious externally, administrators
and staff were allowed back inside the building in order
to check their areas. Any adult who was uncomfortable
with going back into the school could remain outside.
Accompanied by professionally trained fre and police
personnel, elementary school staff entered the school
cautiously and determined that there was nothing suspicious
found internally either. Normal school activities resumed at
9:58 a.m.
During the bomb search, Police offcials at the entrance of
the school directed all arriving vehicles to proceed to Pelham
Memorial School. Additionally, a call was placed to the
Laidlaw bus company informing them of the circumstances.
In the meantime, both Pelham Memorial and Pelham High
School were placed under shelter-in-place - normal school
activities could continue but no one was allowed to leave
classrooms, and visitors were not allowed to enter the
building.
A general alert to the community was sent via social media
by the Police Department at 9:03 a.m., and the schools
sent out their alert message to parents at 9:44 a.m. Parent
reactions to the emergency procedures were generally
positive. Pelham resident Krista Day, mother of six who has
fve children attending Pelham schools, stated that all of her
children at the three schools felt safe and were not distraught
during the crisis. “Kudos to the school staff for remaining
calm and doing their best,” Day said. Pelham resident
Jan Rousseau concurred, “… teachers, students and frst
responders did an excellent job reacting to this threat.”
Lt. Fisher agreed that the emergency response went
smoothly. “Emergency procedures are continuously changing
based on these incidents,” Fisher explained. The changes
do not happen on a daily basis, but Pelham Police and
Fire Departments keep up to date with federal authorities’
recommendations and change their policies accordingly. If
the bomb threat had been determined to be legitimate, the
next step according to Fisher would have been to contact
a bomb squad. Both New Hampshire State Police and the
city of Nashua have fully trained bomb squads that will
immediately respond to incidents of this nature. Also, if the
situation had been determined to be a higher threat, students
would have been evacuated to an undisclosed location
further from the elementary school, using planned and proven
emergency evacuation procedures.
Concerns over if residents and parents were alerted in
a timely manner were expressed, but Pelham resident Jan
Rousseau pointed out that parents and citizens need to trust
that they will be given information at the appropriate time
in order to ensure everyone’s safety. Rousseau, who at one
time was a teller at a bank during a robbery, understands the
restraint that law offcials must practice in these emergency
situations. It is possible that panic might make an already
diffcult situation unmanageable, give a criminal an escape
route, or even precipitate a hostage situation.
Rousseau also suggested that all parents sign up for Citizens
Alert. This alert system utilizes many forms of communication
- including phone, e-mail and social media - to alert residents
of impending crisis. For more information about Citizens
Alert or any emergency procedures, contact the Pelham Police
Department at 635-2411.

Walk-A-Thon to Raise Money
for Helping Hands
by Barbara O’Brien
Autumn is a great time of year to get outdoors and enjoy
the fresh air and colorful foliage that abounds in Southern
New Hampshire. And, this year, it is also a wonderful time
to help raise money for the local non-proft organization
“Helping Hands.”
On Saturday, November 9, Windham’s “Helping Hands”
will hold its very frst walk-a-thon. The event will begin at
8:30 a.m. at Griffn Park and will be comprised of fve laps
around the park. The cost of participation will be $10 per
person. Participants are encouraged to get pledges from
friends, families and co-workers.
Al Pappalardo, who represented “Helping Hands,” said that
the organization, which provides assistance to needy area
residents, is fully insured. He also said that the event has
been cleared with recreation department coordinator Cheryl
Haas. No other sports activities are scheduled for Griffn Park
at the time the walk-a-thon is to be held.
Selectmen approved the walk-a-thon unanimously by a
vote of 5 to 0. Voting in favor were Chairman Phil LoChiatto,
Vice-Chairman Kathleen DiFruscia and Selectmen Roger
Hohenberger, Ross McLeod and Al Letizio, Jr.
Letizio, who said he would be participating in the
November 9 fundraiser, challenged the other four selectmen
to join in and help raise much-needed money for a worthy
organization. All money raised goes directly back to the
community, Pappalardo commented. Windham’s “Helping
Hands” has been in existence for 10 years.

Lady Jags Soccer Squad is Playing Perfect
by Jacob Gagnon
They played more like rattlesnakes, than
Jaguars. In the frst half of their contest against
West High School on Saturday, September 28, the
Windham High School Girls Soccer team shot
often, but only scored one goal. It was the rattle
of the snake before the bite, and in the second
half, Windham struck and struck often. The Lady
Jaguars put away four second-half unanswered
goals against the Blue Knights to push their record
to a perfect 8-0 on the season. Windham won the
game, 5-0.
After squeaking out a 1-0 victory over Hollis-
Brookline High School on September 25
Windham returned to the feld with even more
confdence in their craft. So far in this midpoint of
the season, the Lady Jaguars have proved that they
are able to win close, low scoring games when
challenged. Windham’s ability to overcome every
opponent they have faced has brought them into a
frst-place tie in their division.
Windham wasted little time in attacking the
Blue Knights. Nearly midway through the half, the
Lady Jaguars put the frst notch on the scoreboard
when senior captain Rachel Vafdes blasted a
shot past West’s goalkeeper. The Blue Knights’
defense was continually tested throughout the
frst forty minutes of play. Though Windham had
many scoring opportunities, the score was only
1-0 at the end of the frst half. Yet that score was
misleading, as the Lady Jaguars controlled the
ball, and the pace, for a majority of the half.
“We were a little shaky in the frst half. I told
them at halftime that we need to be able to
put teams away a little better
than we have. Sure enough,
within the frst ten minutes, we
had put the team away,” said
Bryant. “Everybody was pretty
impressive in the second (half).”
Minutes into the second
half, sophomore Hannah Pesci
scored off of a rebound shot for
Windham. Seconds later, senior
captain Sarah Chau scored to
pull the Jaguars ahead by three
goals.
“Sarah Chau was a standout
with creating space for herself and getting on the
end of some passes and the defense was as solid
as ever,” said Bryant. Bryant had encouraged his
defense to try and lengthen their possession of
the ball while also using their stellar goalkeeper,
senior Brianna Angelini, to their advantage by
occasionally passing the ball back to her in net.
Windham’s defense has only allowed one
goal through the entire half of this season. This
impressive feat is explained by not only the Lady
Jaguars’ talent, but also by their intelligence.
“They (the defense) are all very smart. They think
the game very well,” said Bryant. “Any time you
have a player like (senior captain) Clairee Putnam
back there, you’re going to have a solid defense
because she’s going to make everyone else around
her better.”
Junior Danielle Fischer scored next for
Windham, while Chau notched her second score
of the game for the fnal Jaguar point of the day.
Bryant also used the opportunity against West
to try out a new formation with his offense in the
frst half of play. “It was a situational formation
that we’ll do in some games when we’re down
and need a goal, but they weren’t that comfortable
with it. That’s something we’re going to have to
work on,” said Bryant. “I think when we play
something that’s familiar to us, we’re comfortable
and the play refects that.”
Despite cruising through most of their
opponents in the frst half of the season, Bryant
hopes his team will understand that their
competition will grow harder as they move closer
to their championship goals. “The girls have had
a great attitude. They have come out every day
ready to work,” said Bryant. “We’ve risen to the
occasion when we’ve been challenged so I think
the girls have an understanding of what we need
to do.” Luckily for Windham, these Lady Jaguars
welcome the challenge.
Sophomore Hannah Pesci takes a shot on net in Saturday’s victory over West. Senior Rachel Vafdes moves the ball inbounds in the frst half of
Saturday’s game against West High School.

Southern New Hampshire
Steelers Game Five Results
submitted by Southern New
Hampshire Steelers Tiny Mites
Last Sunday, the SNH Steelers
Tiny Mites fnally played their
frst home game of the season
against the NH Jr. Wildcats from
Hampstead. The teams were
evenly matched and played to a frst
half tie, both teams having scored one
touchdown each. The Wildcats struck
frst, but that was quickly answered.
The Steelers put together a great drive
while chewing up a lot of time on the
clock. The drive culminated in a long
touchdown run by Aiden Quaglietta
(Windham) who broke free thanks
to textbook blocking from Xander
Kushman (Windham) and Jared Theodore
(Windham). The Steelers offense stalled
in the second half, but the defense
stepped it up making several fourth down
stops and recording three sacks. Jaryn
Fox (Pelham) had a big game on defense,
recording several solo tackles for a loss.
As always, the SNH Steelers Tiny Mite
Cheerleaders were there and did a great
job of entertaining the crowd throughout
the game and during halftime.
The Steelers next game will also be at
home (Harris Field, home of the Pelham
High Pythons) this coming Sunday at 10
a.m. against the Merrimack Cardinals.
Come down and check out the action.
