Litchﬁeld Parade Brings Attention to Fire Safety
On Friday, October 4, the Litchfield Fire Department held their annual parade. Now a Litchfield tradition, the first parade took place over 25 years ago and draws participants from around southern New Hampshire. This year, over a dozen fire trucks followed the winding route through neighborhoods wtih their lights and sirens blaring. The goal of the event is to bring awareness to fire safety, as October is National Fire Prevention Month.

Last year was the pilot year for the National Veterinary Science CDE and Alvirne High School represented the State of New Hampshire at the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The National Veterinary Science CDE is a competitive event that tests the participant’s veterinary science knowledge in diseases, parasites, equipment, and breed identification. Students must demonstrate hands-on skills in the clinical and handling/restraining practicums. Participants also complete a written exam and respond to scenario questions about current topics in the veterinary industry. Teams then give a presentation to a panel of judges about the roles and responsibilities of the veterinary team in giving care to a particular patient. CDE’s help students develop the abilities to think critically, communicate clearly, and perform effectively in the competitive job market! Each team competed at the state levels for the privilege of representing their state at the National FFA Convention at Alvirne’s Agri-Pet Kennel FFA National Convention in Louisville November 2. This year the students Megan Ferentino, Holly Foley, Ryan James, will compete nationally.

The Word Around Town...
Letters to our Editor
slowed down, forcing me to slow down and by then we were all at the approach to the off-ramp. I rolled the window down and shouted at them about how dangerous it was what they had done, it was illegal and I wrote down most of the license numbers as we sat there just before the traffic light at the top of the ramp. One of the riders got off his motorcycle, ran over to my window, because he saw me writing the license numbers down and just as he reached into my window to grab my notepad; I quickly put the window up. I shouted through the window that I was on my way to the Police Department off Exit 5 and he slammed his fist down on the roof of my car and ran off to get back on his motorcycle. They all then made an illegal right turn on a red light, onto Dunstable Road at high speed. I did go immediately to file a complaint with the Nashua Police, giving them all of the license numbers, and was assured they would act on my complaint; but after more than three weeks of no feedback from the Nashua Police I went in to ask about that incident and was given a response that the motorcycle owners said I was driving erratically and forced three of them off the road. The officer said they would take further action if I had a witness, against the seven of them; so you see what can happen when these gangs of motorcycle riders pick out a vehicle with only one person in it. This kind of dangerous behavior by these gangs of motorcycle riders, happens so suddenly, your first reaction is the fear of what are they trying to do to me and why; which is exactly what happened to the family in New York City; then they take off at high speed, hoping not to be found. Be very cautious about this happening to you and do not open the doors or windows to your vehicle;
Water Supply Plays a Critical, Yet Often Overlooked Role in Fighting Fires
During Fire Prevention Week (October 6-12), I join local water utilities throughout New Hampshire in reminding residents about the critical but often overlooked role that local water supplies – and the systems that deliver them – play in fighting fires and protecting public safety. A properly functioning, well-maintained water system delivers reliable supplies at a high pressure and volume that can mean the difference between a small, manageable fire and a destructive, raging inferno. But water infrastructure - the pipes, distribution mains, wells, pumping equipment, and other components invisible to the public eye - is aging and rapidly disintegrating. This condition is especially prevalent in New England where a number of public water systems are more than 100 years old. To safeguard communities from the ever-present threat of fire, local communities must invest in rehabilitating, improving, and replacing their water infrastructure so that life-saving water can flow uninterrupted from a source of supply, through a network of underground pipes, to the corner hydrant. I also encourage local communities to support the National Fire Protection Association’s campaign to prevent fires in the kitchen, the leading area of origin for home fires, by urging their residents to be more cautious and vigilant, especially when using the stove
(visit www.nfpa.org for more information). During Fire Prevention Week, water works professionals throughout New England applaud our region’s firefighters for their courageous, dedicated, and selfless public service.

Celebrate Those Keeping You Safe Behind the Scenes
Central service professionals are being celebrated for their important role and commitment to patient safety during the annual International Central Service Week, October 13-19, 2013. The International Association of Healthcare Central Service Materiel Management (IAHCSMM) represents approximately 21,000 central service professionals in the U.S. and abroad who facilitate the procurement, management and processing of surgical supplies and equipment. Central service professionals are integral members of the health care team who are responsible for decontaminating, inspecting, assembling, disassembling, packaging, and sterilizing reusable surgical instruments or devices in a health care facility that are essential for patient safety. If you or someone you love has undergone a surgical procedure, a central service professional was directly responsible for the cleaning and sterilization of the instruments used throughout your operation. Please join us in honoring these dedicated central service professionals by celebrating International Central Service Week October 13-19. Penny St. Lsawrence, Hudson
Motorcycle Rage - It Does Happen in Our Area
When I read the news reports on the motorcycle rage in New York City this past Tuesday, I immediately had a flash-back to a very similar incident I had on the Everett Turnpike four years ago; so it does happen right here in our community. I was traveling south on the turnpike from Exit 5 to Exit 4, around 4 p.m., and had just changed lanes to the off ramp lane to Exit 4, and while then in the off-ramp lane, a group of seven motorcycles that were behind me; suddenly were on both sides of me. Three of the motorcycles were actually riding along side of me in the breakdown lane, between the guardrail and the edge of the breakdown lane; while one of them got ahead of me and the other three continued to ride on my left side. They all looked directly at me, as if to taunt me,
Recreation Director Given a 10% Raise
by Len Lathrop The Hudson Board of Selectmen voted to increase Recreation Director’s salary from $50,000 to $55,000 at their Tuesday night meeting. The $5,000 raise was approved in a 3-2 vote, and represents a 10% raise for David Yates, the Director. Recreation Department liaison Selectmen Roger Coutu presented that Yates’ role as director has evolved, and his duties now surpass the job’s description. Coutu said that the job description should be modified to better describe the position. In a motion, Steve Malizia, the Town Administrator was instructed to revise the job description. In the next breath, Coutu when on the record to ask the board to approve a raise for Yates. Coutu went on to present the salaries of other Recreation Directors in towns both smaller and larger than Hudson, and how Yates’ pay was among the lowest. Coutu also presented revenue data from 1998. Participants contributed $70,000 to the total budget. At the time, the entire budget was $194,863, taxpayers had to pay the remaining $124,863. Today participants pay $204,271 in fees, and the total budget is $345,910, leaving the tax impact $140,820. Selectmen Maddox and Nadeau voted in opposition to the raise. According to the 2012 Town Reports, Yates’ total compensation including benefits from the Town of Hudson was $60,318.80.

Eldridge is known for being a songwriter for famous acts such as Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, and Steely Dan - singer/songwriters who create catchy, beautiful tines with insightful lyrics that are both personal and universal. Eldridge visited the students to incite pep for their upcoming New Hampshire All-State auditions. Eldridge warmed up with the students to sitting at the piano and interacting with them.

Beaton continued, “Peter stayed for 40 minutes after the clinic, encouraging our student arranger, Kurtis Garnick, by giving him a CD, and hearing original compositions written and sung by Joseph Wedge. He called Joey a star. The rainbow that appeared in today’s morning sky was surely foreshadowing the kind of day we all would experience.”

Learn About Smoke Alarms
submitted by Litchfield Fire Rescue A properly installed and maintained smoke alarm is the only thing in your home that can alert you and your family to a fire 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Whether you’re awake or asleep, a working smoke alarm is constantly on alert, scanning the air for fire and smoke. According to the National Fire Protection Association, almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in properties without working smoke alarms. A working smoke alarm significantly increases your chances of surviving a deadly home fire. What powers a smoke alarm? Smoke alarms are powered by battery or they are hardwired into the home’s electrical system. If the smoke alarm is powered by battery, it runs on either a disposable 9-volt battery or a non-replaceable 10-year lithium (“long-life”) battery. A backup battery is usually present on hardwired alarms and may need to be replaced. These batteries must be tested on a regular basis and, in most cases, should be replaced at least once each year (except for lithium batteries). See the Smoke Alarm Maintenance section for more information. Install smoke alarms in key areas of your home Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, including the basement. Many fatal fires begin late at night or early in the morning, so the U.S. Fire Administration recommends installing smoke alarms both inside and outside of sleeping areas. Since smoke and many deadly gases rise, installing your smoke alarms at the proper level will provide you with the earliest warning possible. Always follow the manufacturer’s installation instructions. Some fire departments will install battery-operated smoke alarms in your home at no cost. Contact your local fire department’s non-emergency phone number for more information. Hardwired smoke alarms should be installed by a qualified electrician. Smoke alarm maintenance: Smoke alarm powered by a 9-volt battery • Test the alarm monthly. • Replace the batteries at least once per year. • The entire smoke alarm unit should be replaced every 8-10 years. Smoke alarm powered by a 10-year lithium (or “long life”) battery • Test the alarm monthly. • Since you cannot (and should not) replace the lithium battery, the entire smoke alarm unit should be replaced according to manufacturer’s instructions. Smoke alarm that is hardwired into the home’s electrical system • Test the alarm monthly. • The backup battery should be replaced at least once per year. • The entire smoke alarm unit should be replaced every 8-10 years.

Can We Find You in an Emergency?
submitted by Litchfield Fire Rescue In an emergency, police, fire and rescue workers depend on house numbers to find you as quickly as possible. Finding your home - especially at night - can be challenging if address numbers are unreadable, hidden, unlighted or have missing numbers and may delay emergency responders from getting to you as quickly as possible. Are your house numbers visible from the street? Are they set on a background of contrasting color? If your house is hidden from the street, are your numbers attached to a visible fence, mailbox or gate? Is your mobile home identified with your house number? If you live on a corner, does your house number face the street named in your address? If you’ve answered “no” to any of these questions, please follow the guidelines below to make sure your house number is easy to read: 1. Numbers must be visible from the street. Existing residential home numbering should be at least 4 inches high. 2. Numbers should be placed on a contrasting background, with a reflective coating on the numbers for easy visibility at night. 3. Repair or replace aging address number placards, especially on mailboxes that are a distance from the front of the residence. 4. Prune any bushes, tree limbs or other growth that has covered your house numbers. 5. Numbers should be placed on or beside the front door. If your door is not easily As the foliage begins to change in our towns, Musquash Conservation Area is bright with the signs of fall. Show us some of your color - send your best foliage seen from the street, put the numbers on a post, fence or tree at the driveway shots to the Hudson~Litchfield News at firstname.lastname@example.org. If yours is deemed the most colorful we will send you a $25 T-Bones gift certificate. entrance so they can be clearly seen from the street. In addition to numbers on the front door of your house, if you have a rural-style mailbox, reflective and contrasting numbers should be placed on both sides of the box so they can be seen by an emergency vehicle approaching from either direction.
Early Start Children’s Center Learn About Fire Safety From Hudson Firefighters
Lori Bowen - continued from front page
Courtesy photos submitted by Early Start Children’s Center The Pre-K and Preschool classes from Early Start Children’s Center enjoyed a visit from the Hudson Fire Department during Fire Prevention Month. They listened to “Freddie” talk about fire safety and were able to sit in the truck. The kindergarten classes took a trip to the Library Street fire station. They learned about fire safety, toured the fire engines, and ambulance, and learned what a firefighter does. A big thank you goes out to the Hudson Fire Department.

The CHS Community is very proud of these high achieving students, and look forward to their continued success!
Bowen is already keeping a book of wishes. “People are suggesting new activities and I’m putting them into my book of wishes.” Prudence, who comes for coffee on Tuesdays, would like dance lessons. “I remember when my mother asked me if I wanted to learn piano and I said no, I wanted dance lessons,” she said. Finally after she graduated from high school and began working for the telephone company, she also enrolled at Arthur Murray’s Dance Studio and finally got those dance lessons. Today she enjoys dancing as a great form of exercise, which works all the body as well as helps increase overall balance. Dance lessons may be in the future for Hudson seniors. Bowen is already planning for the future. She’s been over the plans for the senior center and is thinking about how to organize the spaces and how to utilize them to offer a plethora of activities so that Hudson seniors will find something that they enjoy. “We like the adult conversation at the Tuesday coffee,” said Prudence Wright, “but we also love the laughter.” Already some of the seniors spoke about becoming friends with people they met at during senior activities and how they have started doing things together outside of organized senior events. Bowen hopes to expand those opportunities by expanding the types of programming available. In addition to working directly with Hudson seniors, Bowen will have a full plate
Card games are enjoyed by members. Pictured from right to left, around the table are Charlene Provencal, Helen McQueeney, Dot Jacobs, Mary Arsenault, Lori Bowen, Janice Wasserman, Ollie Lefebvrie, Lillian Bellisle, and Mary Gallagher as she fulfills all the aspects of her new job. She will be responsible for coordinating programs of other government, charitable, and religious organizations to promote costeffective services to the senior population, and avoid duplication. “We want her to be able to research and write grants for funding that may be available for senior programs, activities, and equipment such as a mini-bus for transportation, heart defibrillator, etc.,” said Yates and we also want her to be able to prepare public information materials dealing with senior issues for our residents.” In addition to working on budgets for the seniors, Bowen will be called up to participate in discussions with community leaders and other interested parties to promote the objectives of Senior Services programs and seniors as well as to recommend any needed changes in town policy to promote the interests of seniors. “I’m just looking forward to all aspects of my job and am happy to be working with such great people,” said Bowen, who urges one and all to stop by the community center for coffee, to play cards, eat lunch or perhaps join the group that plays bingo on Thursdays. “We all bring a brown bag lunch on Tuesdays and eat together. However, on Wednesday and Thursday, St. Joe Senior Services serves lunch. We just ask people to sign up a week in advance if they want to attend.” So, if you are 50 or older, stop by the community center Tuesday through Thursday, meet Bowen and check out the activities. If you arrive on Wednesday morning, be prepared to join an aerobics or line dancing group.

Top DIY Home Winterization Projects
(BPT) - As the months pass and the end of the calendar year approaches, it’s time to update your do-it-yourself list. Several home winterization projects will help keep your home in good repair come spring. While some projects should be left for the experts - like cleaning out the chimney - there are several most homeowners can accomplish themselves. These projects are easy to tackle, and the end result will make a huge difference to your home all winter long and into the spring months. * Flushing gutters - Leaves and small tree branches often fall onto the roof of your home during the summer months, and then wash into the gutters when it rains. Sometimes they’ll flush out, but other times this debris can build up, and prevent the water from draining down the gutter pipe. In winter, this water can back up and freeze, causing an ice dam, which can then damage the roof shingles, and cause leaks into the home and garage when it rains. Be sure to flush the gutters clean, and if you’ve noticed icicles in certain areas in the past, consider installing a heating cable to help keep the water melted and moving down the gutter and into the yard. * Sealing concrete cracks - When water gets into cracks in your sidewalk or driveway and freezes, it can expand, creating a much larger crack come spring. Over time, large cracks will eventually turn into damaged concrete, requiring complete replacement. Tiny cracks that appear shortly after the concrete is poured are not a problem, but those that appear over time and continue to grow are potholes by now thanks to the freezing and thawing of water during the winter month. But you don’t need to replace the entire driveway to take care of these problems. Sakrete U.S. Cold Patch is a strong patch product made from 95 percent recycled materials with no odor or mess. Just sweep the area in and around your pothole, pour in the patching mixture, and roll over the area with a car tire, allowing you to use the driveway immediately. Make certain the entire hole is completely filled and tamped down to prevent water from seeping into the patch. Because U.S. Cold Patch doesn’t contain solvents and raw asphalt, there is no danger of tracking the material into the house or garage. * Extra insulation against heat loss - Colder temperatures affect pipes, doorways and windows. Protect pipes from freezing by wrapping any pipes exposed to the cold with pipe insulation. Also check your doors and windows for leaks or gaps. Find gaps by lighting a candle and holding the flame near the closed window and door seams. If the flame flickers, air is moving through the seam where there is a gap. Fill those gaps with caulk or weather stripping to form a better barrier against the cold. These home DIY projects don’t take a lot of time to accomplish, and will benefit your home and property during the winter months and as spring arrives. Be sure to put them on your home winterization to-do list each fall, so you can enjoy the winter in comfort.

good candidates for repair. There are a variety of patching materials from Sakrete that can be used to repair cracks.-Small narrow cracks can be filled with latex, polyurethane or other products typically found in caulk type tubes or plastic squeeze bottles. They have the advantage of not requiring mixing and being applied directly into the crack.-Sakrete Top n Bond is a much more versatile product that can be used to repair any cracks ranging anywhere from extremely fine to several inches across. In addition, Top n Bond is a portland cement-based product just like the concrete slab.-This allows for a better blending of the both the existing slab and the repair material. Should the need or desire to completely resurface the slab arise in the future, the Top n Bond will easily bond to the surface for a “like new” surface. * Repairing potholes - Any missed cracks in past years with asphalt driveways probably have become

Cozy Up to Energy Savings with Insulation
(BPT) - With temperatures dropping, odds are your energy bills will be doing just the opposite. In fact, heating (and cooling) account for approximately 54 percent of the energy use in a typical U.S. home, according to the Department of Energy, representing the largest energy expense for most homeowners. One of the most effective ways to manage a home’s climate, comfort and energy costs is by ensuring that it is properly insulated. “Insufficient insulation, particularly in basements and attics, can allow heat to escape, resulting in higher energy bills and a less comfortable indoor environment,” says Don Kosanka, product program director for Owens Corning. “The great thing about insulation is that it is an investment that returns itself. It’s something that homeowners can install themselves and it provides year-round benefits. Not only does insulation keep homes warmer in winter and cooler in summer, it delivers energy and cost savings all year long.” In fact, sealing and insulating - when done by a knowledgeable homeowner or skilled contractor - can help save up to $200 a year in heating and cooling costs, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In addition to cost savings, the experts at Owens Corning outline three other key benefits of insulating your home: Energy efﬁciency - The primary purpose of insulation is to control heat flow in a home to save energy on heating and cooling. It’s estimated that homeowners can typically save up to 20 percent of heating and cooling costs by air sealing the home and adding insulation. For optimal energy efficiency, a home should be insulated from the roof down to its foundation. Information about specific areas to insulate in a home is available at www. energy.gov and www.owenscorning.com. Environmental impact - The energy saved by insulating a home also benefits the environment, but it is important to note that not all insulation products have equal environmental impacts. Look for products made from recycled materials, such as Owens Corning’s EcoTouch(R) PINK(R) Fiberglas(TM) Insulation with PureFiber(R) Technology. Enjoyment - Simply put, a well-insulated home is a more comfortable home. Insulation provides a protective barrier between the conditioned areas of a home and the outside elements helping to control moisture and temperature. Additionally, fiberglass insulation acts as a sound absorber, reducing the transmission of sound from one room to another or from the outside. An added incentive for homeowners to improve their home’s insulation this year is the 2013 Federal Tax Credit for Consumer Energy Efficiency. Those who install qualifying insulation products before Dec. 31, can receive a tax credit of 10 percent of the cost, up to $500. For more information on projects, visit www.owenscorning.com. The site also provides access to a list of insulation products that qualify for the 2013 Federal Tax Credit along with the certification statement form.

Tips to Ensure Your Shower Upgrade Doesn’t Turn into a Leaky Mess
(BPT) - Bathrooms are certainly among the busiest rooms in any home. But a bathroom can be so much more than just the place where you get ready during your hurried morning routine. One of the hottest trends in home decorating and remodeling is creating a bathroom that serves as a spa-like retreat. Soothing colors and natural materials are right on trend, but if you really want your bathroom to be an oasis of calm, it also needs to be low-maintenance. If you’re worried about your beautiful new shower leaking, it’s hard to enjoy the experience. Instead, start by taking steps that ensure you don’t have to worry about leaks and the damage they cause. Whether you’re a DIY expert or hiring the job out to a professional, it’s important to carefully review the plans for a new shower. If you’re bringing a contractor on for the job, ask what kind of materials and practices they’ll be using to ensure that they’re not cutting corners. If you’re up for a do-it-yourself job, carefully consider the materials you’ll use look for options that make your job easier but don’t skimp on quality. For instance, the new Shower System from USG is designed to streamline installation without compromising on performance. Keep these tips in mind to ensure that your shower is as durable and leak-proof as possible: * The shower tray: Having the right base in your shower makes all the difference. There’s a perception that the best way to ensure a leak-proof base is an expensive and labor intensive mortar bed. But there are solutions that can cut down on cost and labor. The pre-sloped, high-density, molded-foam shower tray in USG’s DUROCK Shower System, for instance, has a 2 percent slope that makes it easily compatible with a wide array of tile shapes and sizes, offering comfortable flooring and simplicity of installation. * Waterproof membranes: No matter how beautiful your tile, it’s what’s underneath that counts. Using a waterproof membrane ensures far better performance long term. A strong (tear-proof) and thin waterproof membrane over a durable backerboard, such as DUROCK cement board ensures that your shower stays waterproof, even beyond what your eye can see. * The drain: A securely fitted drain will help keep water flowing where it’s supposed to go. If you’re installing a shower system, consider using the proper drain assembly that goes along with it. Systems like the USG DUROCK Shower System offer a versatile drain assembly and wide range of drain grates in 52 designs and finishes. Elegant and functional grates integrate with shower systems but still allow homeowners to choose the style that’s right for them. Keep in mind that grate height might need to be adjusted to match tile thickness and the DUROCK Shower System offers maximum flexibility. A carefully constructed shower will hold its beauty for a long time. And that means your bathroom will remain a retreat where you can think about relaxing instead of repairing. For more information about waterproof shower installations, visit www. durockshowersystem.com.

Home Renovation for Baby Boomers: Preparing for the Next Stage in Life
(BPT) - Lived in your home for years? Love your neighborhood? The thought of moving away from your home’s comfort, warmth and memories can be unsettling. Instead of moving out, consider updating and remodeling your home to accommodate your future needs. Eight-nine percent of Americans 55 and older have embraced this aging-in-place trend, and hope to remain in their own homes for the long-term, according to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). “As Americans strive to maintain their independence and stay in their own homes longer, many take on home improvements projects to reduce maintenance while improving accessibility and energy efficiency,” says Pella Windows & Doors spokesperson Kathy Krafka Harkema. “As they stretch budgets and prepare for retirement, today’s savvy homeowners plan home renovation projects with comfort, convenience and ease of maintenance in mind.” Consider remodeling projects to help enjoy your home longer, more safely and efficiently as you age. Home improvement for the long-term Most homeowners realize the importance of upkeep and maintenance. A leaky window or drafty door wastes energy and can drive up utility costs. To help save energy and money year-round, conduct a home improvement checkup by looking for signs that it’s time for potential repairs. * Check major systems that help protect the outside of your home - the roof, gutters, siding and exterior finish. * Inspect interior components like heating, cooling, chimney and electrical systems. * Make sure enough attic insulation is in place to help prevent ice dams. * Look for signs of deterioration, damage or potential problems. Replace or repair worn or broken items before they can lead to more extensive or expensive repairs. * Check your home’s windows and doors. Are there drafts, chips or breaks in the finish, condensation or fogging between panes of glass, or are they hard to open? Any of these signs can mean it’s time for replacement. * Position storage areas, like shelves, for easy access. * Raise appliances, like washers, dryers, dishwashers and stoves, to minimize bending and lifting. * Replace old appliances and fixtures with more energy-efficient options,

Hudson Chiropractor Heads to Guatemala to Spread Care to the Underprivileged
submitted by Melissa Barclay We all have that one thing that we wish we could do ‘if only’ the circumstances were right, if only we had enough money, if only we weren’t so scared we’d fail; maybe it’s starting a business or going back to finish your college degree. For one Hudson chiropractor all the ‘if onlys’ are officially off the table and the one thing he’s always wanted to do is finally becoming a reality. From October 15 through 23, Dr. Ryan Barclay of Barclay Chiropractic will be one of 11 chiropractors serving on a mission trip to Guatemala City, Guatemala extending patient care to several poor areas of the city. This is a trip of a lifetime for Dr. Barclay and he couldn’t be more excited. “I saw many of my fellow colleagues pursue chiropractic mission trips right out of school. At that time I didn’t have the means to go and decided to focus on patient care in my hometown of Hudson. Now, I have the time and means to go abroad and didn’t want to put this opportunity off any longer,” Barclay said. This mission team of chiropractors has been travelling to Guatemala City for over ten years and the community anticipates their arrival every year with lines of people waiting to receive care. Dr. Barclay will be specifically working in the San Juan Sacatepéquez Village, Railroad Track City, downtown Guatemala City, as well as many churches and schools. “Serving the people of Guatemala City and educating them on the benefits of chiropractic care is the main focus of this trip however I’m hoping to bring back a greater appreciation of the opportunities we have in the United States.”

Knights of Columbus Soccer Challenge
submitted by Dave Wilder The Hudson Knights of Columbus, Council 5162 is sponsoring a Soccer Challenge on Saturday, October 19 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Alvirne High School in Hudson. The Soccer Challenge is a fun event in which participants test their penalty shot skills against kids in their age group. The soccer goal is divided into a series of five scoring zones, with a point value given to each section. Will you take the easy 5 point shots or risk it and go for it all with the difficult 20 point shots? Last year, one girl in her age group was behind until she won it with a clutch shot on her very last attempt. After the participant is given 10 penalty kicks, his or her total number of points will be awarded depending upon the scoring zones that were hit. The Soccer Challenge will be set-up in the area where the Hudson Rec Soccer teams play, and we will be right next to the baseball field. The competition is open to all boys and girls ages 6-14 regardless of whether you play on a soccer team or not. Preregistration is not required. Trophies will be awarded to the top boy and girl scorers at each age level and we will have an awards ceremony to hand out the trophies later on this month. So come on by and bring a friend or challenge your teammates before or after your game on Saturday, we’ll be here up to 2 p.m. For more information, contact Dave Wilder (firstname.lastname@example.org, 566-5873).

Campbell Wins Against Conant In Girls Soccer, 5-0
Campbell Volleyball defeats the Trinity Pioneers, 3-0
Savannah Reinitzer (#18) fights to win the ball from Jenna Hannu (#13) by Phillip Nichols Campbell girls’ soccer team continues to roll, beating the young Conant Orioles team, 5-0, on October 4. The win brought their record to 7-3-1. In the win, Campbell played its entire bench and gave its starters some much needed rest. Freshman Jessica Manning netted her first goal of the season, after having a fabulous outing as the goalkeeper against Gilford, in which she had a shutout. In the first half, Campbell Cougars jumped out to a three goal lead. During the sixth minute, Kali Trunca (#10) passed to Olivia Crema (#7) for the first goal of the game. Sydney Crema (#23) assisted Natasha Abelson (#16) with goal number two at the thirteenth minute mark. Hannah Neild (#20) tacked on a third goal after receiving a pass from Olivia Crema just shy of a half hour into the game. Freshman Jessica Manning netted the fourth goal, and her first goal of the season at 43 minutes. Shortly after the first hour, Freshman Jaclyn Sullivan scored the 5th and final goal for the Lady Cougars. Conant really had no answer. Conant’s coach explained that his team is young and has suffered

We have a young group but many have gained significant experience.” Walker has coached the lady cougars for five seasons.

Bronco Win Against BG Not in the Cards
by Marc Ayotte Despite Alvirne (1-4) and Bishop Guertin (4-1) entering their showdown with reciprocal records, the host Broncos put up a gutsy battle against the Nashua based green and gold but ended up on the short side of a 21-14 verdict. The Friday night lights encounter between the two rivals was saw a recurring fog at field level as well as a first time coaching matchup between first year Alvirne head coach Mark Phillips and his former employer on the gridiron – headed up by Travis Cote. Phillips, after a long and successful stint on the Cardinal’s sideline as an assistant, has experienced more trying times in Bronco country. Mired in fourth place of the newly realigned D-I West Conference, and ahead of only 0-5 Nashua North, Alvirne played convincingly against a BG team who was coming off a big win against Exeter by the identical 21-14 score. A lengthy, opening-quarter drive directed by Alvirne quarterback Jack Mahoney ultimately came up empty and just a few minutes later with 2:34 remaining, the Cardinals struck first. A bad snap which whistled by Bronco punter Tyler Ladebouche resulted in a Guertin first and goal at the Alvirne six. The Cards jumped out to a 7-0 lead on the next play when Mike Devereux’s T.D. burst was followed by Chris Fox’s point after. As the first quarter ticked to a close, Alvirne had marched the ball down to the BG 6 yard line thanks to a 23 yard gain from running back Jose Rodriguez and a quick slant from Mahoney to wide receiver Andrew Stevens. On a 3rd and 1, Mahoney entered the promise land from 5 yards out - capping off a 67 yard drive. However, a failed P.A.T. left the visitors on top by a point which prevailed till the AHS marching band appeared for its James Bond theme half time show. After each team traded ‘four and outs’ in their respective first possession of the third quarter, BG added to its lead, compliments of a 42 yard touchdown run from QB Thomas Hurley. The Cardinal’s signal caller scampered down the Alvirne sideline to the end zone, increasing the visitor’s lead to 14-6 with 6:31 left in the third. On the Bronco’s next possession, Lucas Notini, on a half back option, connected with Stevens for a 30 yard gain down to the BG twenty-eight yard line. Mahoney then hooked-up with WR George Notini on a dazzling 23 yard pass play; setting up a first and goal at the five. Rodriguez (80 yards on 11 touches) then scored from 3 yards out to pull the Broncos to within a pair. Coach Phillips, in an attempt to tie the score, saw Mahoney hit Ethan Rainville with the successful 2 point conversion, knotting the score at 14 apiece with 1:03 left in the third.

With less than two minutes expired in the final frame, the Cardinals regained the lead for good on a 29 yard strike from Hurley to wide out Aiden Loftus. Although defensive back George Notini was in great position, the BG senior receiver leaped and snatched the ball out of the autumn night air, landing in the end zone with what proved to be the game’s decisive scoring play. After the game, Coach Phillips noted of his Bronco’s performance; “we played with them for four quarters” then added words of praise for his former team, saying; “BG is a good team and they’re well coached.” In exchanging niceties, Cardinal Head Coach Travis Cote offered of his opponent; “they’re a much improved team, they’re playing great.”

Two Games in the Loss Column for Lady Broncos

Tori LaRoche heads the ball against Hanover
Kayla Juliano controls the ball against Hanover by Sue LaRoche The Alvirne Lady Broncos have enjoyed a very successful season and have suffered their first two defeats of the season when they lost to Hanover on Thursday, October 3 by the score of 2-1 and on Monday, October 7 to Hollis Brookline 5-1. On Thursday, the Broncos hosted Hanover, a team that they had tied earlier in the season. It was a see-saw battle with play being controlled for the most part by the Broncos, but they could not make a 1-0 lead stick and wound up losing 2-1 with less than four minutes to play. The lone score of the contest came at the 22:34 mark when Tori LaRoche took a pass from Danielle Ross and put it top shelf past the Hanover goalkeeper. The Broncos however
could not make the lead stand up as Hanover scored two goals within two minutes to take the victory. The Broncos were down, but determined to turn it around for the next contest. Unfortunately, they ran into a determined Hollis Brookline squad; a team that they had beaten 2-1 earlier in the season. Hollis Brookline got right down to business taking a 2-1 lead in the first half. Marie Morrier crossed the ball to Brianna Wiggins who passed to Danielle Ross who put the ball away for the lone tally for the Broncos which came with time nearly expired in the first half. Alvirne was missing two key players for this game with Heather Barkley out with a concussion and defender Erin Rosier out with a shoulder injury. Coach Lance McAdam is pleased with the overall performance of his squad. “We graduated nine seniors, last year and there were a few question marks about certain positions but the girls have come through and are playing fantastic. Their hard work and teamwork has afforded them their current success.” Alvirne has a tough schedule for the remainder of the season as they take on Goffstown (7-1-1) on Friday at home and will face Coe-Brown (6-3-1) on October 18 on the road. The Broncos finish their season with two home games on October 22 versus St. Thomas Aquinas (breast cancer awareness night) and finally, senior night on October 25 against a tough Milford squad. The Broncos are fighting for a playoff spot and more importantly to host a playoff game, something that Alvirne girls soccer has not accomplished in quite some time.

You showed compassion and how teammates should treat each other all the time. You have no idea what a positive effect you had with an hour of your time.” “Thumbs up to the Litchfield Fire Department for the professionalism, long hours, and dedication that they provide for the town. Great job to all.” abandoned the people for pocket money. If America is about the people, then the middleclass is the heart and soul of America. Then how can you continue to be part of the Republican Party that shuts down government for the insurance industry? They say they will accept anything because they do not want to come out empty handed. You seem to hate Obama. He doesn’t hate you, yet you hate left-handed people also.”

Come be Amazed at this Year’s PumpkinFest Celebration
submitted by Hudson Kiwanis Organizers are gearing up for some old-fashioned fall fun at the annual PumpkinFest celebration. The sixth annual Kiwanis Hudson PumpkinFest will take place October 18-20 on the grounds in front of the Hills House on Derry Road. PumpkinFest has become one of the largest outdoor craft fair in southern New Hampshire, offering entertainment for every member of the family. More than 100 crafters and vendors participated last year. “The event is well-publicized and draws about 5,000 people per day,” said Mike Falzone, one of the event organizers. “We have over 80 crafters and vendors signed up so far, and will probably grow to over 100 before we open.” Along with hand-made goods, guests enjoy a carnival midway, a free petting zoo, pony rides, games, free entertainment, lots of food, and a beer tent. A classic car show is taking place on the grounds from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Sam the Music Man will spin the oldies, and trophies will be given out at 1 p.m. Registration is free! After that - New Hampshire’s own Doo Wop group The Belair’s will perform a free concert. Pedestrians will be tapping their toes all weekend with a long line up of family entertainment, music, and free stuff for kids! Friday evening kicks off with Studio Two - A Beatle’s Tribute band from 5-8 p.m., under the big tent. Saturday, starting at noon, magician Steve Devitt will entertain both children and adults with a magic show featuring ventriloquism with animal puppets. RE/MAX will feature tethered Hot Air Balloon Rides sponsored by DJ Clement, from 4-6 p.m. on Saturday. “I can’t wait to get 200 feet in the air and take a picture of the entire fair grounds,” commented Falzone. “It’s always weather driven, so we’re hoping for sun and a light breeze.” The Rock Daddy’s, one of Hudson’s longest running cover bands will take the stage at 5 p.m. Saturday followed by a free fireworks display at 8 p.m. by Hudson’s RS Fireworks. On Sunday, the musical entertainment begins at noon with the Cow Pie Bingo at 2 p.m. “Basically, it’s a huge 150 space bingo board, painted on the grass. You buy squares for $10. We bring the cow over from the Alvirne barn, and walk him around the plot. Where he plops is the winner of half of the money we raise.” Tickets are available all weekend at the field for just $10. Costumed trick-or-treaters under 10 years old are welcome at all vendor booths from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday to load up on free candy. “This event has become exactly what I envisioned seven years ago,” explains Falzone. “We wanted to bring as many of the nonprofits together to work in unison and showcase all the things they do to help the community. Last year we had over 25 local nonprofits working here benefiting from the event. We’re on track to increase that number this year.” But more important than that is the squeal of the kids as they whirl around on rides, and run from booth to booth grabbing candy. This is family fun, pure and simple, the old fashioned way. And what would PumpkinFest be without pumpkins? “The first year we had 290 carved pumpkins. This year we are teaming up with the Kiwanis high school service clubs - Campbell High and Alvirne High Key Clubs to see which group can get friends and family to bring more pumpkins!” Also new this year is essentially a Food Truck Alley. “We have some interesting food vendors this year, and get calls every day from people who want to come sell food.” From fried bacon puffs, poutine, gourmet coffee, a bakery, pizza, fried dough, apple crisp, meatball and sausage subs, hand cut French fries, onion rings, all things chicken, steak and cheese, soup, chowders, dippin’ fruit, cheescake, pastrami, pulled pork and brisket- we have some awesome foods, “ continued Falzone. “We’re not sure how we’re going to organize the food area, but it’s safe to say between food and crafts, visitors will get their fill.” PumpkinFest is open rain or shine. Updates, a full list of vendors and their crafts, and all food vendors are available at www. Hudsonpumpkinfest.com. For more information, contact Mike Falzone at 320-8020.

Alvirne Crimps Crimson’s Style
Richardson Rocks as Broncos Roll
by Marc Ayotte The Alvirne boys’ soccer team maintained its elite status in the Division I standings with an impressive 2-1 home field victory over second ranked Concord on Tuesday, October 8. Brett Richardson continued his torrid play, scoring the game winner with just 12:44 remaining in regulation as the Broncos (9-2) overcame the one goal deficit and handed the Crimson (8-2-1) only their second loss of the season. The win pushed Alvirne into a tie for second place with Manchester Central behind undefeated Hanover (11-0). Concord jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the game’s 7th minute when Nate Gosselin drilled a shot high into the left corner of the net, beating Bronco keep Jake Schofield. But just over two and a half minutes later, Alvirne answered, as PJ Busnach snuck behind Tide goalie Andrew Grondin to head a loose ball into the far corner for a 1-1 score. With 11:00 remaining in the first half, Concord nearly regained the lead on a brilliant header by Emmanuel Smith, but the Crimson Freshman’s redirect was matched by an even flashier save by Schofield, as the two teams took the one all tie into the intermission. In the early stages of the second half, scoring opportunities dried up for the host Broncos save for the nifty individual move by Richardson that resulted in a shot from the left side sailing just by the right post from about 25 yards out. A minute after the Bronco near score, Liam Regan, who had replaced Schofield between the posts to start

the second half, came up with a big safe to keep the score tied at one apiece. Minutes later, a corner kick off the foot of Kyler Thayen was headed by teammate Gaston Arocena, scraping paint off the crossbar as Concord nearly regained the lead. After a nice save by Grondin on a direct kick PJ Busnach, #6 in white, scores a first half goal for the Broncos tying the score at 1 from Richardson and an equally of the second forty. “They had a high energy dazzling sliding chest save by Regan on Concord’s level,” recounted Alvirne assistant coach Al Conti, Smith around the 66th minute, Richardson again adding; “we are a skill team but we weren’t first to worked his magic. The Alvirne striker converged the ball.” upon the Crimson goalie some 20 yards out With Londonderry dictating the flow of the from the goal line and after gaining possession action, Bronco scoring opportunities were at of the loose ball, made his way behind Grondin a minimum. Starting at the 67 minute mark, and proceeded to slide the game winner past a Alvirne became more aggressive in the attack desperation- sliding save attempt by defenseman zone, resulting in better scoring chances.

The Lancer keep collided with Alvirne’s Sweeney who was hustling for a loose ball to the right of the net. Krause’s injury resulted in him leaving the game and being replaced in goal by Jeffrey Baroody. During the pause in action, the sidelines became the platform for a riled-up Alvirne coaching staff.

Mission accomplished. With an impending overtime scenario staring the Broncos straight on, Andrew Teague delivered a precision-placed corner kick to Richardson who redirected it just inside the left post past a baffled Baroody. “I usually run to the near post and they know to send it down low” recounted Richardson. “The ball came quicker than I thought and went in off my hip” added the Bronco leading scorer whose second goal of the game and 13th tally of the year proved to be the game winner.
