St. Patricks parishioners and their pets
gathered at St. Patricks Parish Saturday,
October 5 for the annual Blessing of the
Animals. This holy ceremony was chosen
on this particular date because the Feast Day
of Saint Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of
animals, was celebrated on the 4th. Locals
gathered around Father Von Derosia who
could be seen reading from the Book of
Blessings and sprinkling holy water upon the
now blessed animals. As Father Von explained
all things can be blessed, especially creations
of god such as the animals that provide us with

The Pease Greeters are a non-proft
organization created in 2005. Deriving their
name from Pease International Airport In
Portsmouth, this dedicated group of veterans
and veteran supporters greet every plan
either deploying U.S. troops to Afghanistan or
welcoming them home.
On Sunday, October 6 Cub Scout Pack 610
along with members of Cub Scout Pack 25, Boy
Scout Troop 610, members of the VFW Post 10722

group traveled to Portsmouth for Pack 610s frst
Meet-Up of the Scouting year. Scouts and their
families brought homemade signs and treats to
welcome, meet and greet the 248 service men
and women from the 4-3 ADA BN from Fort
Sill, OK returning from their tour of duty from
Our scouts and fellow Pelham folks lined up
to give our Soldier Heroes the welcome home
they deserved. The soldiers, in awe of the display
of patriotism and shock that folks would give
up a few hours on their weekend to come and
welcome them, greeted and Hi-Fived our scout
family and handed our boys foreign coins and
service memorabilia.
The Pease Greeters are a phenomenal group of
volunteers. Their free welcome wagon includes
fresh hot pizza, donuts, coffee, soda, water, candy,
gum and cookies for the soldiers. The Greeters
commissary offer free books and playing cards
and the bathrooms are stocked with free toiletries
that afford the luxury of a shave and a chance
to freshen up. The biggest hit was the Pease Toy

Just like many homeowners do this time of year,
Windham Selectmen are making arrangements to have
maintenance issues addressed before winter sets in with a
During one of their meetings earlier this month, town
offcials took some time to okay a priority list of repairs
and upgrades; a list that was put together with the help of
department heads and Town Administrator David Sullivan.
The money for the renovations will be taken from the
Windham Property Maintenance Trust; an account that
currently contains just slightly less than $80,000.
According to information provided by Assistant Town
Administrator and Finance Director Dana Call, $29,238
was carried forward from 2012, while an additional
$50,000 was budgeted for 2013; adding up to a total of
$79,238 available for use this year.
Sullivan said that painting the exteriors of the Windham
Police Department, Fire Department, Senior Center and
Searles School and Chapel are at the top of the list; jobs
totaling approximately $25,550. Water repairs at the
police department due to leakage into the building are also
slated to be done this fall. This is phase two of this project.
Estimates are pending. Plans also include replacing 11
windows in the police department with a more energy-
effcient style; at an estimate of $6,500
The fre department building is also scheduled for radiant
heat and fue venting in the apparatus bay, due to ongoing
problems. The quoted price is $3,800.

State Senator Says
Windham is Underfunded
in Education
by Barbara OBrien
Earlier this month, several of Windhams State Representatives, as well as State
Senator Jim Rausch (R), who represents Hampstead, Derry and Windham, told
local school board members that the Windham School District is underfunded
when it comes to State aid for education. This came as no surprise to school
board members.
According to Senator Rausch, New Hampshires education trust fund went
from major unsustainability to measures intended to counteract that situation.
The funding problem developed, Rausch explained when legislators wrote a
formula they couldnt pay for. It was written to favor large communities and it
did, Rausch commented.
Due to an existing cap on funding for education at the State level, Windham
is presently short by about $2.5 million in adequacy aid, which makes it
the second worst such scenario in New Hampshire. According to Rausch,
Windham is second only to the Town of Bedford, which is underfunded by about
$4 million.
Places such as Windham and Bedford are prejudiced against because they are
viewed as wealthy communities, Rausch explained. The funding for adequacy
in education is based on the median family income of a community, the number
of free and reduced meals served to students in that community, as well as the
number of students who are identifed as using English as a second language.
Various taxes are used to fund adequacy aid.
Rather than the current formula that is being used, Rausch would like to see a
simple mathematical formula used to determine how much money a community
gets. The formula should be based on the number of students x $3,000 per
student, he said. We should just fund the number of children, Rausch said.
Although the formula has stabilized the funding issue somewhat, legislators
also realize that a defciency remains. We still need to generate more revenue,
Rausch said. Were hoping that the economy improves enough to that, he
said. I truly believe that we will get there.
While most New Hampshire communities are not seeing growth in their
student enrollment, Rausch said Windham is an anomaly. Statewide there are
fewer kids, he said, but not in Windham. In the last year alone, Windham has
seen an increase of about 70 students districtwide.

Whats In Your Wallet? e WSD
Watch your wallets Windham taxpayers - the Windham School District
(WSD) is after your money again!
Tirteen months ago Windham School District Business Administrator
Adam Steel said the portables would last at least fve more years after signing
an agreement to pay $340,000 for the portables. Mr. Steel is also the
Windham School District Facilities Administrator, the person responsible for
maintaining Windham School District facilities.
At the October 1, 2013 School Board meeting (see Windham Public TV
for the video, the discussion on the portables begins at 2:21:30.), Mr. Steel
now says the portables are only worth $20,000 and Windham taxpayers
will have to pay $70K for their disposal. At the same meeting, the School
Administration now says the portables at the Golden Brook School are in
need of replacement at a cost of $1.3 million, plus the remaining balance of
$308K on the (now worthless) portables, plus a $70K disposal fee, all from
your tax dollars!
What is going on with the School District? How many times can they
go to the well? What changed in 13 months from when Adam Steel signed
the purchase agreement stating the portables were good for 5-plus years and
worth $340,000 - to now - when they are in need of replacement at a cost of
$1.3M plus interest?
Heres the bottom line. Te WSD wants to spend your tax dollars the
following way:
$1,300,000 - New portables
$308,000 - 4 remaining $77K payments
$70,000 - Disposal costs
$1,678,000 - Total
As taxpayers, we all should be paying closer attention to what is going on
at the School Board meetings. After all, its your money they are spending
and theyll be coming after it in March 2014.

Hometown Pride
Last month, I had the privilege of returning to my hometown school,
Pelham High.
One of my former English teachers, Dr. Linda Fox, asked me to speak
about my journalism career and my recent book August Gale: A Father and
Daughters Journey into the Storm, a story about the 1935 gale that killed
several of my Newfoundland sea-faring ancestors.
More than 60 students gathered in the library and listened to myself
and my father (who is in the book) talk about how I researched and wrote
August Gale. Silently I worried, How am I going to keep the attention of
this many students?
But the Pelham High students not only listened attentively, they asked
several insightful questions for more than 45 minutes. When I fnished
speaking, the students gathered around my father and me to ask more
questions. I was impressed with their curiosity and passion to learn.
(Several also oered to be in the August Gale movie!)
In his well-written story about my visit, Prominent Author Returns to
Roots, Chris Gamble, a student and intern for the Pelham~Windham News,
noted that several Pelham graduates have succeeded in careers as astronauts,
professional baseball players, coaches, Pulitzer Prize winners, and state
After my visit to PHS, I have no doubt that many of the schools current
students will continue to make their hometown proud. Tey are fortunate
to have wonderful teachers like Dr. Fox, who encouraged me to pursue
writing many years ago and still inspires students today.
Who knows maybe this papers fne writer Chris Gamble will go on to
win his own Pulitzer Prize?

Tax Dollars Collected on Commercial
Property - A Net Gain To Windham;
Those Collected on Residential
- A Net Loss
submitted by Al Letizio, Jr.
When considering economic development in Windham, many factors should be considered and among the most
important is that Commercial Properties provide positive revenue in tax income to the town and require very little in
corresponding expenses for services, as compared to residential where tax dollars brought in do not cover the costs of
services provided.
A 2012 Windham Conservation Committee Cost of Community Services services report shows that when
$1,000,000 is collected from residential taxpayers, $1,050,000 is spent out against that revenue in services. When
$1,000,000 is collected in commercial taxes, only $280,000 is spent out in services. So the commercial property taxes
collected are contributing to our net revenues, while residential are costing us.
Commercial Tax Revenue Residential Tax Revenue
Tax Income $1,000,000 $1,000,000
Cost of Services $280,000 $1,050,000
Net to Town +$720,000 -$ 50,000
When considering both relief to home owners tax bill as well
as net income to the Town of Windham, arent we well served to
facilitate and grow our commercial enterprises?

Bulletin Board
by Barbara OBrien
The wooden two-sided bulletin board that stands in front of
Windhams historic Town Hall is in deplorable condition. The white
paint is faking and pieces of the frame are actually splintering away
due to extensive rotting. It also seems that nobody has been doing
any posting on the bulletin board recently, as most of the messages
hanging there are months, if not years out of date.
All that is about to change, however, thanks to Eagle Scout
candidate Ben Havisto. Ben, currently a Life Scout with Windhams
Troop 266, has been given approval to rehabilitate the bulletin board
as his community service project; a requirement to achieve the
highest rank in Boy Scouts; that of Eagle Scout. Selectmen granted
Ben permission to undertake the project by a unanimous vote of 5 to
Upon inspecting the old bulletin board, Ben even found a nest of
bees making their home in the deteriorating frame. As for sprucing
up the bulletin board, Ben will be using pressure treated wood and
installing a plexiglass cover on both sides to protect any messages that
are displayed. On one side of the bulletin board, Ben plans to post
various maps of Windham, including one showing recreational trails.
Ben plans to complete the job before winter sets in later this year.
We are very fortunate as a town to have so many scout projects,
selectmens chairman Phil LoChiatto commented. In the past
several months alone, several community service projects have been
completed by members of local Girl Scout and Boy Scout Troops.

It was a picture perfect Homecoming weekend at Windham
High School, the cinematic kind with old friends reconnecting,
sportsmanship triumphing, and school spirit abounding. The festivities
began Monday, September 30, heading off a successful spirit week
that ended in a pep rally and victorious sports matches.
All week the students at Windham High School competed against
each other to see which class had the most school spirit. The
competition was based on percentages of class participation on days
like pajama day, twin day, superhero day, Hawaiian day, and fnally,
class color day. On this fnal day, the entire student body gathered in
the gym for a pep rally.
The pep band and cheerleaders drummed up the crowd, each
class gathering in four separate areas of the gym decked out in their
class colors. The sports teams marched out to overwhelming cheers.
Mr. Jack Byrne, Human Performance teacher and MC for the event,
explained that the students came together and the seniors were
super positive, they knew exactly how to lead and they knew exactly
how to treat the young kids.
At the end of various pep rally games such as Musical Chairs
and Tug-of-War, the combined Sophomore-Junior team won over
the Freshman-Senior team for the Blue and Gold Spirit Award.
However, the individual prize went, of course, to the seniors.
The students and staff agree that this years pep rally was the best
in the schools short history. It was the best one yet by far. It was
excellent and it was nice to look around and see all the blue and
the gold and the green and the white. It was great and having the
band play the whole time was just fabulous! said teacher Shannan
The following day brought even more people together from
the community at the annual Homecoming football game. Many
alumni returned to see the friends and teachers they left behind as
they journeyed off to college. Julia Steele, a member of the class
of 2013 and a Freshman at Emerson College, said she was excited
to come back to see her friends and teachers. Theres a couple
teachers who have made such a big impact on my life and Im glad I
got to see them.
Ben Gallo, a freshman at UNH and a past member of the
Windham High School band, said that its strange to come
back as an alumni and described High School as a different
world compared to college. Cathryn Sansoucie, another
past member of the WHS band, said that life at Simmons
College is a completely different adventure. I really miss
band, actually, thats what I miss the most! she said.
While alumni caught up with old friends and teachers,
families gathered to watch the football game. Students saw a
different side of their teachers as they came with spouses and
children. Principal Ryan Kaplan arrived with his wife, Linsay,
and their two children, Lilah and Elija. Living an hour from
school, they [my family members] dont have a chance to get
here too often but its great to have everybody here. So [the
students] they can see kind of the other half of Mr. Kaplan,
the family side.
At half-time the band performed as Junior Jaycie Greenberg
did her baton-twirling routine. The seniors on the Cross
Country Team were also recognized for their participation
and achievements in the past four years. All three of them,
Kyle Carbonneau, Alex Brissette, and Alex Fitzgerald, have
very bright futures ahead of them with aspirations to study
math or science in college. They fnd themselves reluctant to
leave the familiar setting of Windham High School and look
forward to coming back for next years Homecoming. Alex Brissette,
though excited for the future, admitted that he would rather be here
The sport teams all experienced spectacular victories. The girls
feld hockey team won 11-0 over Pelham, the girls volleyball team
3-0 over Pelham, the boys soccer team 11-0 over Pelham, and the
girls soccer team 8-0 over Pelham. The boys football team triumphed
in a close 27-23 victory over Milford. It was huge, we were down
at half time we were kind of taking a beating and our kids just sort of
fgured out that they were going to stick together and not quit: it was
one of those storybook days, commented football Coach Jack Byrne.
Even more important than the athletics was the sense of
community Homecoming brought out of the student body and the
town as a whole. Saturday night there was a dance and bonfre to
mark the end of the eventful week. An involved parent of three high
school students and WHS staff member Deanna Missert said, I love
the school spirit that everybody has. The freshmen, the sophomores,
the juniors, the seniors I love it, it brings the whole community
Next year the school hopes to see as much school spirit and
welcome back the classes of 2012, 2013, and 2014. To all the
alumni who returned for the festivities, welcome home.

Three years ago, the Town of Windham
switched property and liability insurance
companies from the Local Government Center
(LGC) to Primex; the only two municipal pool
programs available in New Hampshire. The
purpose of the switch was to save taxpayer dollars.
Late last month, Town Administrator David
Sullivan announced that the goal of saving money
had been achieved. During the past three years,
Windham has saved more than $80,000 by going
with Primex. The annual cost with the LGC had
been $146.000, while the current yearly premium
with Primex is currently $116,000; a difference of
As a result, Sullivan recommended, and
selectmen concurred, that the contract with
Primex be extended for an additional three years.
Selectmen voted 4 to 0 to extend the contract
from 2014 to 2016 with an annual increase of no
more than seven percent in the premium. 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.

Approximately a month after the start of
the new school year, Superintendent Winfried
Feneberg noted that the overall student
enrollment for the Windham School District was
holding steady, but had diminished slightly
since the frst of September.
Feneberg, who took over the job of
superintendent for SAU 95 on July 1, said there
was a total of 2,829 students in kindergarten
through twelfth grade as of October 1. This is
15 students less than were recorded to be on the
roster as of September 1.
Feneberg also stated that this past June, at the
end of the 2012-2013 school year, there had been
a total of 2,840 students enrolled in the Windham
School District. The current student enrollment is
11 students less than at the end of the school year
this past June.

Town Saves Money
on Insurance Premiums
by Gloria Lavoie
Lieutenant Brian McCarthy of the Pelham
Police recently hosted a Driver Safety Course for
motorists aged 50 and older in the training room
of the Pelham Police Station. The goal here
is to bring people up to date with some of the
changes in the laws and update them on some
of the trends that we see on the highways and
byways. From road rage to impaired driving; its
a refresher course, McCarthy explained. When
these drivers got their drivers licenses 40 years
ago, there were no drivers ed classes. For a lot of
them, this is their frst refresher, he continued.
A group of 16 mature drivers spent two days
with Lt. McCarthy and AARP Instructor Dick
Cote. With eight hours of classroom time over
the two days, the students reviewed driving rules
and techniques while many of them also earned
discounts with their certifcates
as their auto insurance
companies offered discounts for
attending such classes as this
one. With no written or driving
tests, McCarthy was pleased
with the turnout.
The students explained
how the only requirement for
renewing a drivers license is an
eye test every fve years. They
agree that the information they
gathered in class will be quite
helpful. Drivers in the 50 to 75 year old age
group have no more traffc crashes than middle
age drivers until approximately age 75, when
there is an increase. Drivers age 75 and over have
much higher crash rates; almost as great as drivers
aged 16-24.
New vehicle technology can be confusing to
some drivers. This class explained how to avoid
distractions by becoming familiar with your
vehicle. It explained how to avoid aggressive
drivers, how to drive through roundabouts and
how to determine who has the right-of-way and
even how medication can affect your driving. The
AARP class is geared toward drivers over 50, but
is open to anyone looking to refresh their skills.
Lt. McCarthy enjoys the opportunity to break
barriers and interact with the older drivers, in
an informal setting in which he can inform,
answer questions and share experiences with the
group. I really enjoy being involved and helping
people, he said. He talked about how 99 percent
of speed limit signage is white and 1 percent is
yellow and asked the group if they knew what the
yellow ones were. He then explained how those
are suggested speed limit signs and that they can
still be enforced.
Joseph Rosa, 82, of Salem said, This is my
third class and I have defnitely picked up several
tips and learned something in each class. I think
its super. Dick Cote is an excellent teacher. It
was a good learning experience and we learned
a lot. Rosa, who attended the class with his
partner, Hazel, recalled his frst car, I had a
Model A Ford. I had to tow it out of a feld and
work on it to get it going. It was 4-cylinder and
the gas was up in the front. It had the old throttle
that you would advance the spark or retard it
so it would backfre. Oh man, thats old! He
appreciates all the technology that his 2012 Lexus
came equipped with. It tells me if I am drifting
off the road, it has stability control. I think its
wonderful, he explained.

imaging center in Windham, and are so pleased
to be able to save our patients 40 percent-70
percent off their screening or diagnostic imaging,

annual breast cancer screening. A physician
referral is not needed for a mammogram, and

Are you a closet Trekkie? Do you just love
Star Wars and those Ewoks? Have you always
wanted to attend a convention but havent had
the chance? Well, come to the Pelham VFWs
Sci-Fi Costume Theme Dinner on November 1
being held at St. Patricks Parish Center starting at
6 p.m. This is a family friendly sci-f/comic-con
costume party where we want you to dress as
your favorite Star Trek or Star Wars character. Also
Super Heroes, Dr. Who, other sci-f characters
are welcome! There will be prizes for the best
adult and kid costumes as voted on by the guests,
several Star Trek/Star Wars trivia contests with
prizes, music, dancing and awesome food from
Nelixs Kitchen including Gagh (linguine), Vulcan
Plomeek soup (green pea soup), Regulan blood
worms (hot dogs), Bajoran Hasperat (veggie
wraps), Storm Trooper Cupcakes, Wookie Cookies,
candy and so much more!
Were trying to make this event different and
fun! There are a lot of sci-f fans out there and we
thought this would be a great way to pull them
together to help veterans, Commander Mark
McCabe said. All proceeds raised at the VFW
events go toward helping veterans in some way.
We just helped a struggling military family with
donations of gift cards for food and clothing for
the kids; weve helped a Gold Star family purchase
heating oil and get her sons photo up on the
Memorial Wall at the VA Hospital. There are too
many veterans who are returning and need help
during the interim time before their VA benefts
begin. Veterans coming back to no job and
sometimes no home are needing to get into VA
housing and these places have absolutely nothing
in them except four walls and a roof, President
Madeline Dreusicke shared. We help veterans in
need every month in some way. Thats why were
Join us at this event. Tickets are $10 each for
adults/$5 for kids under 12 which includes the
meal, desserts, sodas, etc. Raffe items and a
50/50 will be held. Items on display: a 12 foot
banner from a Star Trek Convention which is
signed by over 10 actors, Star Trek memorabilia/
posters, Star Trek Bloopers video shown and music
played and other fun surprises. This is open to the
public and we encourage families to attend. Get
one more use out of that costume this year.
Proceeds from these dinners also go towards
building expenses. We are in desperate need of
a roof on the Post home, Commander McCabe
explained. So some of the proceeds will go into
our building fund which has been growing so that
we can put a roof on, hopefully by next year. We
would gladly accept donations toward our Roof
Fund separately at any time! We encourage pre-
ticket sales since space is limited. Contact Dot
and Gene Carter at 635-7863 to reserve a spot or
a table of eight. Come support a great cause and
have a great time with fellow sci-f fans! We hope
to see you at this fun event in force.

New Hampshire Freemasons are opening up their private Lodge rooms on Saturday, October 19, to
give the people of their communities an unrestricted look at who Masons are and what they do.
The purpose of the special Open House, involving 65 Masonic Lodges from Portsmouth to Colebrook,
is to demonstrate to people how Freemasonry relates to local communities and attempts through its
members to promote social well being.
The people hosting this event are the very people of our own local communities, said Stewart
Aronson, Grand Master of New Hampshires 6,400 Masons. We
live, work and play like everyone else, share the same concerns for
our kids, like everyone else and work to make our communities better
places to live, just like everyone else.
The times, Aronson added, demand that people have a chance
to see for themselves whats behind our closed doors and to have
a sense of the genuine passion we Masons share for the social and
spiritual values we embrace.
In keeping with the Grand Masters objectives, doors to local
Masonic Lodges will open promptly at 9 a.m. and remain open until
3 p.m. Member Masons from their own communities will be on hand
to answer questions and give guided tours to explain the signifcance
of Lodge furniture, ornaments, jewels and working tools used in
private Masonic ceremonies. Lodge members will also address how
these symbols of the fraternity apply to its charitable work and the
community service work of its members.
Everyone is welcome; especially those who have heard about the
Masonic experience and want to ask questions about the organization.
Brochures will be available, together with light food and refreshments.
Overt solicitation of candidate members is prohibited, but the
fraternity is open to qualifed men at least 18 year of age who are
deemed to be of good character, believe in a single deity and desire
to become even better men. Freemasonry promotes friendship,
fellowship and kinship, offering a range of activities for personal
development, community service, civic leadership and social, family-
oriented fun.
The fraternity, established in New Hampshire in 1735, directly
supports many charitable activities: the Shrine Hospitals for Children,
support of medical research, scholarships, programs for child
identifcation and combating drug abuse, the Scottish Rite Learning
Centers, and quiet local charity. Freemasons are committed to helping
those who are less fortunate, and in the process hope to build a better,
safer and happier world.
To fnd a local Masonic Lodge visit or
contact for location details.
More About Freemasons
Freemasonry traces its offcial history to the formation of the Grand
Lodge of England in 1717, but is generally regarded to have evolved
from the cathedral builders of the 1400s and their proprietary system
of stone mason guilds.
Some writers maintain that Freemasonrys roots as a speculative, or
symbolic craft, reach back even to the construction of King Solomons
Temple in Jerusalem and beyond, although historians have not
convincingly documented this.
Certain aspects of its Lodge ceremonies are considered proprietary
and not discussed publically, but are hardly secret when one
considers that virtually the entire canon of Masonic Lodge activity is
published to and available from internet sources.
Masonic membership is predicated on an avowed belief in a single
unifying God, although it promotes no particular religious points of
view, offers no plan of salvation and strictly forbids discussions of
religion and politics during its offcial gatherings.

opportunity to work with choreographers and dancers
featured in Lifetime Televisions Dance Moms show, as

It was an exciting and enriching experience for
Brooklyn, who has been dancing at Dance Concepts

and talk with Maddie, MacKenzie, Nia, and other stars
from the show as well as dancers from the new season
of Abbys Ultimate Dance Competition. Brooklyns
mom, Julie, was able to watch from the perch made
famous from the bickering dance moms, although she
was far better behaved than her TV counterparts.
When asked about the experience, Brooklyn, who
aspires to someday dance professionally on Broadway,
remarked, This was a dream come true. I learned so
much and had a lot of fun. This is my Disneyworld.

What is the Source of
Windhams Tax Revenues?
submitted by Al Letizio, Jr.
In Windham, 92.1 percent of the tax revenue collected in 2012 came from Residential Property
taxpayers while only 7.9 percent came from Non-Residential/Commercial Property taxpayers.
Specifcally, this is the breakout:
Tax Revenue collected from Windham Residents: $43,365,365
Tax Revenue collected from Windham Commercial: $3,719,722
Total: $47,085,087
Windham residents bear the burden of 92 percent of the cost of
operations in our town while residents of towns like Andover and
Bedford pay a signifcantly lower amount of taxes because their
businesses pick up the difference. The WEDC is committed to
lowering the residential tax burden while maintaining Windhams
high quality of life.
The Windham Economic Development Committee dedicated
to enhancing the vitality of the local economy to balance the tax
base for all Windham residents. Visit us on line at:

To Reduce Lyme Disease Risks,
Keep Tick-Carrying Deer Out of Your Yard
(BPT) - Colder weathers arrival means hom-
eowners across the country brace themselves for
the battle against bold, foraging deer. But with
recent reports that Lyme disease - transmitted by
ticks that live on deer - is even more prevalent
than health offcials once thought, keeping deer
away from your backyard is not just a cosmetic
or fnancial issue any more. Your success at
deterring deer could directly affect your familys
The Centers for Disease Control and Preven-
tion recently estimated about 300,000 cases of
Lyme disease are diagnosed each year. Only
about 30,000 of those actually get reported to
the CDC. Many more likely go undiagnosed
since Lyme symptoms can mimic other ailments
and even disappear altogether for a time. Lyme
disease is now the most common tick-borne ill-
ness, according to the CDC, and its health conse-
quences can be severe.
Lyme disease is named for the river-side Connect-
icut town where it frst emerged in 1977. A number
of children in the area began exhibiting arthritis-like
symptoms, a hallmark of the disease. A bulls-eye
target-shaped rash at the bite location may be the
frst indication that a person was bitten by a tick
carrying Lyme disease, but not everyone will see
or develop the rash. Symptoms such as joint pain,
headaches, neck stiffness and heartbeat irregulari-
ties may get mistaken for fu or other illnesses.
In the northeast, mid-Atlantic and north-central
states, deer ticks carry the disease. On the Pacifc
Coast, blacklegged ticks (who also like traveling on
deer) spread Lyme disease, the CDC says.-
Year-round, especially during fall and winter, you
should check your own body, children and pets for
ticks. Deer ticks are often so small you wont even
feel their bite, so visual inspection is important. If
you suspect youve been bitten, talk to your doctor
right away.
The CDC says that reducing your exposure to
ticks is the best defense against contracting Lyme
disease. While you cant vaccinate your family
against Lyme disease (the vaccine maker stopped
production in 2002, citing lack of consumer de-
mand), you can vaccinate your backyard against
deer that carry Lyme-bearing ticks. Keeping deer
away from your backyard can help reduce your
chances of encountering ticks in your home envi-
Look for a proven effective, natural deterrent that
has been independently tested, like Bobbex Deer
Repellent. The topical foliar spray uses taste and
smell aversion ingredients to deter deer, moose
and elk from browsing and causing other damage
to ornamental plantings, shrubs and trees. Safe for
use on even the most sensitive plantings, as well
as around children and pets, Bobbex works in any
climate and will not wash off after heavy rain or
snow. The Connecticut Department of Forestry
and Horticulture tested Bobbex Deer Repellant
against 10 top competitors and found it to be
93 percent effective, second only to a physical
barrier, such as a fence, in keeping deer away. To
learn more, visit
As part of your deer and Lyme prevention ef-
forts, keep these facts in mind:
* Prevention is easier than cure - in both cases.
Even after treatment with antibiotics, 10 to 20
percent of Lyme patients have symptoms that last
for months or even years, the CDC reports. Once
deer move into your yard, they can be diffcult to
evict, and they can cause hundreds of dollars in
damage. Its easier to keep deer away - and avoid
Lyme altogether - than to rectify the problems
created by deer and the ticks they carry.
* A single whitetail deer can consume 8 to 12
pounds of foliage a day.
* Home remedies rarely work for keeping deer
away, and trying to treat Lyme on your own can
have severe health consequences. Untreated Lyme
disease can cause arthritis, severe joint pain and
swelling, and even chronic neurological problems
such as numbness, tingling in the hands or feet and
short-term memory problems, the CDC says.
* Even though many plants, bushes and trees
will lose their leaves during fall and winter, its
important to continue applying deer repellents year-
round. Remember, deer forage aggressively when
food becomes scarce. Fall and winter are the times
when theyre most likely to enter your yard - bring-
ing their disease-carrying cargo with them while
ravaging your foliage, trees and shrubs.

What a Home Inspection
Can do for You
(BPT) - While giving a new $900,000
home a thorough going-over, Salt Lake
City home inspector Kurt Salomon found a
problem under the deck. The builder had
cut corners, using the wrong kind of fasten-
ers to secure the deck to the house. Yet, the
municipal building offcial had approved
the work.
In some cases, a building inspector is
not going to crawl underneath the deck
looking at the hardware. A good home in-
spector will, says Salomon, past president
of the American Society of Home Inspec-
Because it uncovers aspects of the home
that are unsafe or not in working condi-
tion, an inspection is a must when buying
a home, says J.J. Montanaro, a certifed
fnancial planner with USAA.
You want surprises that come with hom-
eownership to be happy surprises, not bad
ones, Montanaro says. A thorough home
inspection by a certifed professional can
help ensure thats the case.
Salomon says an inspection of the house
you want to buy helps identify not only
safety concerns and failing structural ele-
ments but faulty mechanical systems and
areas that soon may need maintenance.
Youll pay around $300 to $500 for an
inspection, which can take two to three
hours. The cost can vary based on your geo-
graphic region, and the size and age of the
home. Requesting other services, such as
septic and radon testing, will add to the fee.
An inspection is money and time well-
spent, Montanaro says. If your inspector
fnds things that should be repaired, you
can use that report as leverage to have them
fxed or negotiate a lower price.
To help get the most from a home inspec-
tion, Salomon and Montanaro advice you
to follow these steps:
* Do your homework: Many contracts in-
clude a home-inspection deadline, so start
shopping for an inspector when you qualify
for a mortgage. This gives you time to fnd a
qualifed, professional inspector.
* Look for the inspection clause: Before
you sign a contract, make sure it includes a
clause that makes your purchase contingent
on the fndings of an inspection with the
inspector you choose. This can provide a
way out of the contract if the inspector fnds
a major problem the homeowner wont
Make sure the clause is included even if
the contract specifes an as-is sale, meaning
the seller does not agree to make repairs.
If a sellers not willing to let you inspect
the house, thats a big red fag, Montanaro
* Hire a pro: Shop around. Ask friends,
neighbors and real estate agents for recom-
mendations. For help online, the American
Society of Home Inspectors has a database
of its certifed inspectors. And the Depart-
ment of Housing and Urban Development
offers a list of 10 questions to ask inspec-
* Ask to see a sample report: Inspectors
fll out reports, following checklists for dif-
ferent areas of a house. It should be clear
and informative. Reports longer than 25
pages flled with lots of legal print —
usually meant to protect the inspector
against liabilities — raise a red fag.
By the same token, a few pages arent
* Accompany the inspector: Take notes
and ask about maintenance issues youll
need to address, such as waterproofng
the deck, caulking the siding, changing air
flters and other matters.
* Review the report: The inspector will
send you a written report detailing his
or her fndings. Read it closely and ask
questions to make sure you understand the
condition of all areas of the home.
If your inspector fnds a leaky roof, a
faulty water heater or some other problem,
you may have the right to ask the seller to
correct it to your satisfaction or to lower the
price. If the seller refuses, you may be able
to break the contract without penalty.
If a seller agrees either to make the
repairs or offer to lower the price, take the
money and then fx the problems yourself.
Did You Know?
The thinnest house in New York City, a city known for high real estate
costs and compact dwellings, is located in the West Village neighborhood of
Manhattan. Now known as the Millay House, a name honoring its one-time
resident, the poet Edna St. Vincent Millay, the house was built in 1873 and
is a mere 9.5 feet wide. It is sandwiched into a space that once served as a
carriage alley. While Millay House certainly is compact, a home in Warsaw,
Poland, is only four feet wide and, at its thinnest, is only 29.3 inches. The
residence, called the Keret House, was built in a crack between two build-
ings. The entrance is in the rear of the home and features an entry hatch and a
foldable, remote control-operated ladder.

Youth Soccer Takes
Harvest Cup
submitted by Daniel Pascarella
On Monday October 14, the Windham Boys U11 soccer team
won the 20th Annual York, ME, Harvest Cup Tournament. The three
day tournament hosted over 100 boys and girls travel clubs from
all over northern New England ages U9 through U14 . This U11
Boys Windham team went undefeated in the tournament, including
a commanding 4-1 victory in the semi fnals against the Bedford
Athletic Club and a 5-0 win in the fnals.
Over the three day Columbus Day tournament the offensive
attack was led by Charlie Breen, Owen Larouco and Sawyer Hall.
Standout defensive performances were turned in by Connor Lynch,
Matthew Speedy Kearney, Trey Gonzalez, Jack Nolan, and Jeff
Draper. Connor Terry turned in his top effort of the year leading
the team in goal and helping to direct the defense in the back third
of the feld. The team also got huge contributions from Jackson
Cavallaro, Connor Hare, Quinn Cerami, and Adam Burke who
helped control the middle of the feld with solid and unselfsh play.
Congratulations and Outstanding Job!

Thumbs Up? Thumbs Down? Thumbs Up? Thumbs Down?
Thumbs down to the Pelham
Planning Director and Planning
Board. How can you approve a
development of 60+ homes, Sky
View, off Spaulding Hill Road
without requiring Spaulding Hill
Road to be widened to handle
the potential 120 cars that will
be added when it is complete?
As it is today you already are
required to pull over so a large
vehicle can pass coming in the
opposite direction. Mr. Director
stop hiding behind the plywood
up in your offce mezzanine,
and get self down to talk with the little people that
pay your salary. Shame on all of you for allowing
this project to go ahead without the proper
planning. Since the whole area already has a No
Water Problem, I hope all those who get to buy
those homes in Sky View enjoy living without
water like the rest of us. Go Pelham Hillbillies!
Thumbs up to the Windham PTA for providing
the High School teachers with a great dinner
during Parent/Teacher Conferences! It was
delicious and we appreciate everything you do for
the school and community.
Thumbs down to the corruption within the
Pelham schools. It is disgusting how much this
administration covers up and lies, especially
in regards to not providing
appropriate services to
children with special needs.
Not to mention the abrupt
rudeness and eye rolling of
administration and therapists.
An appropriate education is
not giving the bare minimum
possible to save money to give
incompetent admin raises.
Thumbs down. I am told
the guy at the dump used 50K
in Recycling Grant money
for garbage use? Why not
give the funds to the mayor
of Lawrence. Do your own
homework on this one.
Thumbs down to the BOS
and the BudCom. These
shenanigans are why we vote
no on the Budget. Did the
Town Admin OK this?
Thumbs up to hockey and football Moms that
check with their pediatricians regarding CTE. Not
sure what that is? Find out.
Thumbs up to Pat and Frank of Windham.
Congratulations on your 40th anniversary of
wedded bliss!
Thumbs up to the extremely caring and helpful
people of the Cobbetts pond neighborhood over
by Pine Brook Road. Our family cant thank you
enough for doing everything you could to help
use catch our 9 month old puppy when she got
loose. We can assure you that if you ever see
her around the neighborhood again, shell be on
a leash with a family member in tow. We only
wish we couldve caught your names so we could
thank you again in person. You are guys are great!
Thank you!
Thumbs up to the Pelham Town Clerk for
offering e-registration for car registrations,
property taxes and dog license renewal. This
service will defnitely make life a little easier for
us very busy folks! Thank you!
Thumbs down to the families in town who
think the Pelham school district is awful. One
bit of advice, pack your bags
and move. No one is stopping
you. You are embarrassing
yourself more and more every
day talking crap about Pelham
and the schools. No one wants
to hear it. Why stay here and
continually talk negative. You
are such a downer!
Thumbs up Pelham. Thumbs
up to most of the community
for your continued support of
education. The new plans for
the high school are amazing.
Thumbs up to those who lead a positive life,
I applaud you. There is way too much negativity
in the world it takes too much energy to be
miserable. Make the best with what you are given
thats all you can do!
Thumbs down, way down to Woodys Auto
Body. He is driving at an excessive rate of speed
throughout the town of Pelham. It is disgraceful
that he is allowed to operate at such high rates of
speed, even if it is a response to an emergency
call. Bad publicity, Woody.
Thumbs up to those drivers who, when
navigating the roundabout, use their directionals
indicating where they are getting on or off.
Certainly takes second guessing out of the
equation and possibly eliminates any accidents.

The sole purpose of the Windham School Boards public forum
on October 10 was to solicit opinions and suggestions from
members of the community. That turned out to not be an easy task
to accomplish. Although nearly two dozen residents and parents
showed up for the discussion group at Windham Middle School,
most of them seemed hesitant to come to the microphone and
share their thoughts with others. All fve school board members
were there to answer questions, but what they really wanted was
input from others on how best to begin resolving the ongoing space
The people who attended the meeting seemed as confused about
which is the best solution to pursue as are school administrators.
Not only is there the dilemma of which school to renovate or add
on to frst or whether to build a new school building, but also the
challenge of how taxpayers are going to be able to afford whatever
recommendation the school board comes up with for next Marchs
School board chairman Michael Joanis got things underway by
reviewing possible options. The frst, to do nothing, was certainly
not a choice that garnered any popularity. Other choices, some of
which would be meant to be temporary, received little or no support,
either, including: tuitioning some students elsewhere, renting space
from other school districts, renting commercial space, sending eighth
grade students to Windham High School, repairing or replacing
portable classrooms, or renovating and/or building an addition to
Golden Book School. The most popular choices seemed to be a
phased addition to Windham Middle School, building a new seventh
and eighth grade school (one that would be expandable to add a
sixth grade wing at a later date), or constructing a new sixth, seventh
and eighth grade school. Again, the major problem is how one of
these more popular choices could be accomplished in a way that
would be affordable for taxpayers. Questions also remain on what
to do about the need for additional athletic facilities.
This past March, school board members proposed building a
seventh and eighth grade school on school district-owned land off
London Bridge Road, but the idea was soundly defeated by those
residents who turned out at the polls. Board members are hoping
they can convince voters to have a change of mind this coming
March and are working hard to provide residents with as much
information on the situation as possible. Grabbing the attention
and maintaining the interest of residents seems to be diffcult to
accomplish, however.
Joanis talked a little bit about what is different now from
the situation that existed last March. There are some 60 to 80
more students enrolled in Windham now than there were a year
ago, Joanis said. In addition, problems with leaking roofs and
deteriorating portable classrooms have moved to the forefront. It has
also literally been confrmed that no New Hampshire State Building
Aid will be made available for the 2014-2015 school year. The only
good news is that one more payment has been made on the 20-year
bond for Windham High School.
Former school board chairman and long-time volunteer at Golden
Brook School Barbara Coish suggested that repairs be made to the
existing portables at Golden Brook next spring. Were going to
need them for at least four more years, Coish said. We also need
to fx the capacity issues at the middle school, she added. Lets
not repeat what we did last year, Coish said. Although the school is
dubbed Windham Middle School, it is not actually certifed by the
State as a middle school, due to its lack of certain programs.
School District Moderator Betty Dunn said she thinks Golden
Brook is far too big for an elementary school. Its huge, she said.
Its bigger than some small colleges. You lose a lot with tiny kids
in a school that big, she said; adding that the logistics to run the
building are so diffcult that soon the students will need to be
regimented like little soldiers. They need more room and time for
movement, Dunn stated.
Joe Miller, who said he has a child at Golden Brook, told school
board members that his son returns home at the end of the school
day with uneaten snacks because there is not enough time to eat
them. Something prudent has to be done; something more than a
stop gap, Miller said.
Tony Masseous said the situation is all about how youre going to
pay for it. There are many diverse families in town; and not all of
them are wealthy, Masseous pointed out. Windham needs a larger
commercial base to offset residential taxes, he explained. You
gotta keep the taxpayers in mind, he said. Masseous also said he
believes Windham High School should have been built to house
1,500 students, not 1,000. The new high school opened its doors to
students in 2009. Currently, there are just over 800 students, plus
pre-schoolers housed in one section of the building.
Wanda Rice said she moved to Windham because of the new
high school and she is pleased with what is happening at that level.
However, looking forward, her biggest concern is that there will be a
repeat of last years massive defeats at the polls. If you put out too
much stuff, everything gets voted down, Rice said.
Rosalynn Armstrong reiterated what shes been saying for the past
three years, that the school board needs to take a macro-facility
view, focusing on the space constraints in grades one through eight.
Its not a building problem, Armstrong said. Its an over-crowding
issue. Superintendent Winfried Feneberg said he anticipates that it
will be about fve more years of increasing enrollment before the
numbers begin to level off. We need to review all the options and
narrow them down. We need to take a long-term view and rally
around the fnal choice. Were not helping ourselves by putting
things off, Armstrong said. We need to stop making excuses!
Danielle Stuttgart said school board members need to come up
with new ways to communicate with the public. You need to get
information out in small increments, along the way, she said, so
that residents fully understand the issues. The school board needs
to come back with something that makes sense to the voters,
Masseous added, saying he doesnt like having his back put up
against the wall by being told teachers will leave if they dont get
what they want through a new contract. A new teacher contract is
currently under negotiation.
Dunn said, as the school district moderator, she is often surprised
by who does and who doesnt vote. More people need to get
involved, Dunn said. Your vote does make a difference. Its
always easy to rally the anti-vote, Dunn said, but that gives a
skewed view of the population. We need a more balanced view
of the pros and cons of these issues, Dunn said. Did you vote? Do
you care? Do you encourage your neighbors to vote? Dunn asked.
Joanis said that he and the other school board members feel very
frustrated over the lack of participation by residents. Its a constant
struggle, he said. We are not going to be able to solve all the
problems at once, Joanis said, but we want to at least move the
needle in the right direction; from Point A to Point B. Theres no
excuse for people not being here tonight, Coish said, pointing to all
the vacant seats. There was plenty of advertising.
In response to someones comment that the town shouldnt allow
any more houses to be built in Windham because of the over-
crowded schools, Dunn said, We dont have the option to just say
you cant build any more houses. That would be unconstitutional,
she said, explaining that growth control ordinances are only allowed
under extraordinary circumstances. Windham is not there yet,
she said. Planning board chairman Kristi St. Laurent said the newest
proposed sub-division in Windham includes 21 more houses. In
fact, there could very well be 45 new units approved within the next
year, she said. People do have a right to develop their land, St.
Laurent said. Windham is the kind of community where people
want to raise a family, she said. I dont see a whole lot of relief for
the overcrowding any time soon.
As the end of the meeting neared, Joanis said, We really havent
heard what you want us to do this coming year. Masseous said he
thinks Golden Brook School should be addressed frst and that any
extra space at Windham High School should be used temporarily
until Windhams commercial base is expanded. Address the big
picture in grades one through eight, Lois Bates responded. Go
with the biggest bang for the buck, Nancy Lafferty said. Dont
fx things piecemeal. Lafferty said she has some neighbors who
are pulling their kids out of Windham public schools and either
home schooling them or enrolling them elsewhere, due to the
overcrowded classrooms and buildings.
Julie Kaplan said she opposes spending more money on the
portables, stating that they are no more than a money pit. Go
with a new addition, she said. Temporary structures cause
permanent problems, Katie Pare said. Build new; there needs to
be a permanent solution.
Barbara Coish said she would not start with renovations to Golden
Brook. It cant be frst, she said. Something has to be done with
the middle school frst. Coish also noted that school administrators
only have a short time to sell whatever youre going to sell to the
public for next March.
School board members plan to make a selection of the fnal two
or three options no later than November 5 and the fnal choice by
November 19. A public hearing on the proposal is set for January
7, 2014. The deliberative session is scheduled for February 7 and
Election Day 2014 will be held on Tuesday, March 11.
Anyone who wants to share their opinions with school board
members is urged to contact one of them as soon as possible, either
by email or phone.
School Board Urges Public Input on Solving Space Crunch
by Barbara OBrien
Former Windham Fire Chief Stanley Jake
Mackey passed away on October 4, following a brief
hospitalization at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Hospital in
Lebanon. Chief Mackey, 83, had been diagnosed
with spinal meningitis.
Mackey became a Windham resident in 1959 and
joined the local fre department just one year later, as
a part-time call frefghter. In 1966, he became the
towns second full-time frefghter. Previously, he was
employed by the Raytheon Corporation in Lowell,
MA. He also served in the military during the Korean
War. He was stationed along the Panama Canal.
Mackey became Windhams fre chief in 1978 and
served in that capacity until his retirement in 1989
at the age of 59. He and his wife, Eileen, relocated
to Andover, NH, following Mackeys retirement.
Mackey also served as an auxiliary police offcer
during his years in Windham.
Current Fire Chief Tom McPherson remembers
Mackey fondly. It was Chief Mackey who hired
McPherson, originally as a Windham call frefghter,
in 1980. Mackey then appointed McPherson as
a full-time frefghter, two years later, in 1982.
Chief Mackey was down-to-earth and laid back,
McPherson said. He was dedicated to his family and
to the community in which he served.
A memorial service for Chief Mackey is scheduled
at the Searles Chapel on Range Road in Windham on
Friday, October 18 at 10:30 a.m.

Repairs are also needed to the roof on
the Senior Center on North Lowell Road,
just across from Town Hall. Repairs
will be made to the west side of the
buildings main roof, as identifed during
an inspection earlier this year. The
quoted price is $3,600. Repairs are also
needed to the roof on the Community
Development Building; a structure that
was built in 1946 as a frehouse. The cost
of the roof repairs was quoted at $19,585
for the full roof and the shed located
behind the building. The defects were
also discovered during an inspection this
past summer.
Also pertaining to the Community
Development Building are plans to
replace the original overhead garage
doors, with an estimate of $14,000
pending additional quotes. Because of
the historic nature of the building, the
doors must be very similar to the existing
ones. The carpeting in this building also
needs to be replaced (meeting room and
offces) and will be done in phases at an
estimated $26 per yard.
As for the Town Hall Building,
approved plans include refnishing the
upstairs hardwood foor one more time.
Selectmen said that the wood is strong
enough to withstand one more sanding
and refnishing. The estimated cost is
The total estimated cost of these
renovations amounts to $52,535, leaving
a balance of $26,703.
Sullivan listed the replacement of
carpeting in the hallways and offces of

pass through and take as many items as they
like during their two to three hour layovers.
Since 2005 the Pease Greeters have

Razorbacks 3rd Grade Continues
Win Streak Against Nashua Elks
submitted by Paul Leonard
3rd Grade Razorbacks stop the invading Crusaders in their tracks.
Wind, rain, and cold temperatures couldnt dampen the fghting
spirit of the 3rd Grade Razorbacks who added to their undefeated
2013 season with a convincing victory over the Nashua Elks
Crusaders. The wet conditions kept most of the game on the ground
but the Elks just couldnt penetrate the stout wall of bacon that is the
Razorbacks defense.
The Razorbacks scored on their frst possession with a 12 yard
scamper by RB Matt Santosuasso after his 55 yard sweep setup by
ferce blocking from Nick Tango, Jesse Killion, Matt Benson, Ricky
Lacoss, Colin Roark. On the conversion attempt, QB Jake Travis
attempted to pass to WR Peter Hemmerdinger, but with pressure up
the middle he decided to keep it and scrambled left for the extra
Nashua couldnt break through the Razorbacks Defense all day.
The Crusaders frst offensive series ended with negative yards as they
turned the ball over on downs because of unstoppable defensive
led by Ryan Lynde, Connor Travis, Sawyer Goose Gosselin, and
Anthony Smith. On the ensuing Razorbacks offensive series QB
Jake Travis took a bootleg left to the house for a 65 yard touchdown
behind tremendous blocks from Colby Meehan, Ryan Lindell, Kyle
Elie, and Aiden Lynch.
Nashuas next attempt to gain some offensive momentum ended
quickly as their running backs were simply getting stuffed at the line
of scrimmage by the Razorbacks defenders led by Bobby Ayotte,
Dom Herrling, Aiden Patten, and Logan Dumont.
At this point the rain really started coming down again and the
cold started to really impact both teams. The Razorbacks offense
began to bring in some fresh new running backs led by Billy
Nicolls, Zach James, and Bobby Ayotte who were able to break
tackles and hold onto the to the ball despite hard hits and slippery
conditions. Their valiant runs set up a 35 yard TD keeper from QB
Jake Houdini Travis who was able to escape the clutches of two
Crusader defenders who had him stopped in the backfeld. The
extra point attempt was just short on a strong run from new Running
Back Cam Clermont. The Crusaders third try at offense failed after
four quick losses caused by defensive stops from Derek Muise, Peter
Hemmerdinger, and Jacob Albert.
Nearing halftime it seemed that the Razorbacks would score
quickly again. FB Alex Carroll rumbled 43 yards to the Crusader 14
yard line, but the weather conditions seemed to take over and the
half ended with a commanding Razorbacks lead 19-0.
The rain did not let up in the second half and the temperatures
seemed to fall as Colin Roark kicked off to the Nashua 35 with a
short run back to the 40. Alex Carroll, Dom Herrling, Jakob Baker,
and Russ Leonard all combined to shut down the Crusader offensive
series after just four plays. The ensuing Razorbacks offensive series
culminated with a punishing 10 yard TD run by RB Peter Gamache
setup by a 35 yard rumble from FB Derek Muise.
The Crusaders tried valiantly to get it going on offense but was
stopped cold by LB Jakob Baker who intercepted the Nashua pass
attempt and scampered 75 yards for the Razorbacks Touchdown to
the delight of the Bacon Boosters cheering from the sideline. This
brought the offcial score to 32-0 in favor of the Razorbacks and on
came a fresh crop of future running backs as Mason Ketelaar , Diego
Jimenez, and Russ leonard took the rock and punished the Crusader
defense with hard runs right into heart of the defense.
Next week the Razorbacks will travel to Raymond with a full tilt
matchup against the Nor-Rock Vikings.
Windham U-9 Girls Travel Team
2013 Capitol Cup Tournament
submitted by Rich Sinopoli
The Windham U-9 Girls Travel Soccer Team (FC
Green Machine) entered their frst tournament of the
year this past weekend. As the sole representative of
WSA at the Concord Capitol Cup Tournament, the
team had a great opportunity to demonstrate their
skills and spirit. Placed in the U-10 Pine Division,
FCGM opened with a 2-2 tie to the Hampton Attack.
Much credit to Hamptons goalie who stopped
about 20-25 shots. Later that afternoon, FC Green
Machine defeated a tough Bedford
team 7-0, despite calling off the
dogs and instituting the teams three
pass shooting rule after scoring
three goals. FCGM faced a regular
season division foe in the Sunday
opener and defeated Bow 3-1. This
set up a rematch with the U-10
Hampton Attack, Sunday afternoon.
The girls played to a 0-0 tie by the
half. Despite 30-35 laser beam
shots throughout the game, the girls could not fgure a way
by Hamptons tough goalie and fnished with a 2-0 defeat.
The spirit of this team is evident in the smiles in the
picture taken after the fnal game. The smiles, in addition
to the cartwheels, dancing, hugs, and singing, post-game,
demonstrate these girls know that it is all about having fun. The fne young
ladies featured in the picture are Abby Irwin, Cecilia Sinopoli, Emma
DeMarco, Bree Amari, Avery Sawyer, Chloe Weeks, Catarina Gomes, Leah
Morrier, Ashlyn Walsh, Mia Carter, and Kyra Faulkingham. They are led by
Assistant Coach Paul DeMarco and Coach Rich Sinopoli.

Lady Pythons Sports Roundup
Pelhams Morgan Pinksten (#2 white) shown here in a home game vs.
Windham scored the only Pelham goal in the loss to the Jags as well as
in the 2-1 overtime loss to Somersworth
by Marc Ayotte
The PHS girls volleyball team has kept its play-off hopes alive
thanks to a recent strong showing on the road at Fall Mountain
Regional. With the top 12 teams qualifying for the Division II post
season, Coach Jen Nugents squad is in control of their own destiny
as they are currently positioned in the fnal available playoff spot
with a 4-8 record. Sandwiched in between two tough 0-3 losses
(Souhegan on Monday, October 7 and against Coe-Brown 4 days
later ), the Pythons recorded a dramatic victory when they traveled
to Alstead to take on the Wildcats. The Pythons skinned the Cats in
four games by scores of 25-17, 16-25, 25-14 and 27-25.
Pelham posted a strong defensive effort against the perennially
scrappy Wildcats. Middle blockers Holly Joyce and Amanda Olson
were strong at the net with four blocks apiece while defensive
specialist Kelsey Grimard was credited with 46 digs on the night.
On offense, setter Kaylie Apkarian distributed the ball well with 13
assists, while Joyce also made a contribution on the offensive side
of the net with 4 kills. Alyssa Paradis was stellar from the service
line, scoring 13 service points and two aces. The Pythons square-off
against Plymouth in the Snake Pit at 6 p.m. on Friday, October 18, as
part of the PHS Homecoming sports activities.
Cougars Claw-Out Win In Field Hockey
The schedule didnt get any easier for the girls feld hockey team
when they faced undefeated Derryfeld (13-0) at home on October
15. After suffering a tough 1-0 home loss to Mascenic Regional one
week earlier, the Lady Pythons were formidable opponents for the
top ranked Cougars but despite a stellar performance between the
posts from goalie Chelsea Stanton, fell by a score of 3-0, dropping
their record to 2-9-2 for the season.
Despite Derryfeld dominating the fow of the game, Pelham
played the perennial powerhouse private school from Manchester
to a scoreless deadlock for most of the frst half. It was Stanton,
who stood on her head for the frst 30 minutes that kept the potent
Cougar offense at bay. However, with 6:32 remaining before
intermission, it was Colbi Vaillancourt who took advantage of a
loose ball in the Python crease that staked her Cougars to a 1-0 lead.
Clinging to the slim one goal advantage with the clock approaching
10 minutes remaining in the game, Derryfeld, on the strength of two
goals in a 39 second span by Berklee Vaillancourt and Zoe Pisierra,
put the game out of reach.
Soccer Loses OT Heartbreaker
Meanwhile, over on the adjacent soccer feld, the Lady Python
soccer team was engaged in a defensive struggle of their own.
Eighty minutes of regulation was not enough to determine the
outcome against Somersworth and with just three minutes remaining
in the second-ten minute overtime session, the Hilltoppers scored,
handing a defating 2-1 defeat to the hard working Pythons.
Pelham took a 1-0 lead midway through the frst half on the
strength of Morgan Pinkstens second goal in as many games; the frst
coming in a lopsided 10-1 loss to Windham at home on October 11.
However, the lead did not last long as Somersworth tied things
up before heading into the intermission.
A scoreless second half did see a pair of excellent Pelham
scoring chances from Brooke Paradis and Lauren Anderson
go by the board. Paradis bid came on a direct kick which
sailed over the crossbar from about 25 yards out and with just
seconds remaining, Anderson, while positioned in the box, was
denied after redirecting a perfectly delivered corner kick off the
foot of Pinksten. Additionally, the Pythons received fne play
from keeper Shayanne Skinner; she was awesome in goal,
recounted Coach Bob Keane, her best game all year, she was
really solid.
Once again it was the lack of personnel on the bench that
caught up with the Pythons and played a crucial role in the
outcome of the game. Despite the disappointing loss, Keane
was pleased with the performance of many players who were
forced to play the entire game. It was a total team effort with a
short bench, observed Keane. After his list of standouts began
to lengthen, the Python coach paused and offered; kudos to all
of them. I really cant single any one out. I couldnt ask for anything
With defenders fanking her, Pelham goalie Chelsea Stanton makes
a left pad save during a relentless Derryfeld attack




Windham Golf Squad Captures
Division II Crown
by Jacob Gagnon
Great teams need strong leadership, focused athletes and a hard-working mindset that motivates every
person in the program to get better, even when they are the best in the division. The Windham High
School Boys Golf team was not just great in 2013, but perfect and they capped off an unbeaten season
with a Division II State Championship.
The Jaguars recorded a team score of 395 points to claim the Division II Title. It was not only a terrifc
team play that has propelled Windham this season, but also crucial individual efforts. These efforts were
showcased in the Division II State Championship meet, as six Windham High School golfers earned a
berth to compete on Saturday, October 12, in the Individual State Championships in Canterbury.
Leading the pack for the Jaguars is defending 2012 State Champion, Connor Greenleaf, who scored a
team-best 73 points in the team tournament. Greenleaf has the distinct advantage of having been to the

Pythons Vaiknoras D-III Golf State Champion PHS
Runner-up in Team Competition
by Marc Ayotte
After leading the Pythons on the links to a stellar 20-4 team record
during the regular season, senior Jake Vaiknoras continued his stellar
play at the state tournament by posting back to back sizzling rounds
of 71-71-142 to capture the New Hampshire Division III individual
state golf championship. Over the two day event, the Python three
sport star torched the 6,044 yard Ridgewood Country Club layout with
consecutive 1 under par rounds to take the title by three strokes over
runner-up Josh Lacasse of Bow.
Vaiknoras red-number tour around the Moultonborough track
was highlighted by seven birdies against a mere fve bogies, and
also catapulted the Pythons to a second place fnish in the team
competition of the tournament. Along with teammates David
Boardman (85), Kyle Surprenant (90), and Doug Carton (91), the top
four Python scorers combined for a team total of 337; good for state
runner-up recognition as they fnished just ahead of Mascenic (338),
Gilford (339) and nearby Campbell (344).
With respect to Bows running away with the state title after an
unblemished 22-0 regular season mark, Vaiknoras, light heartedly and
with a sense of realism, referenced the teams that fnished second
through ffth by saying we were playing for our own championship,
adding of the strong Falcon foursome; nobody was beating Bow.
The top 7 teams in the standings during the regular season qualifed
for the post season competition and were allowed to bring all seven
players to the event. Teams that fnished out of the top seven were
allotted two spots for the individual component of the tournament.
After the frst round on Thursday, October 10, the top 12 scorers
advanced to day two (October 12) from which a two round/36 hole
cumulative total was used to determine the fnal rankings.
Vaiknoras with his consistent sub-par rounds beat off a pair of Bow
adversaries in the form of frst round leader Lacasse (70-75-145), and
Doug Champagne who fred a dazzling 2 under par 70 to fnish with
a total of 148 and in third place. Interestingly, Vaiknoras and Lacasse
not only played this years fnal round as part of the fnal foursome, but
were also paired together last year in the fnal round which saw the
prominent Python fnish second in the individual portion of the states.
In noting that the course was not lengthy (at just over 6,000 yards),
Vaiknoras admitted that he did not take the driver out of his bag very
often; I dont hit a lot of drivers. I poke my 3-iron out there pretty
good. However, the long hitting senior did acknowledge that he took
out the weapon on holes 15, 16, and 18, saying that it was pretty
open on the back (side).
For the tournament, Vaiknoras attributed his winning it all to his
consistency in getting in the fairway off the tee, being able to read
breaks on the greens correctly, knowing the direction of the grains as
well as being familiar with the course layout. Playing out of his home
course of Campbell Scottish Highlands in Salem, Vaiknoras played
precision golf; hitting 30 out of 36 greens in regulation; I put myself
in good position to score, recalled the senior Snake. With distance
and accuracy from the tee box being a key factor, Vaiknoras jokingly
awarded his 3 iron with Most Valuable Club status, saying; just
because it stuck with me both days. With an ability of mastering the
short game, he also gave an honorable mention of sorts to his sand
wedge for its role of honing in on fag sticks with approach shots from
the fairway.
On the day after his superb individual accomplishment that will earn
him a spot in the comforting confnes of the PHS Snake Pit, Vaiknoras
admitted, it feels awesome. I dont know if it has really hit me yet.

Python Jake Vaiknoras won the Division III Individual State Championship
after fring a 2 under par 142 at Ridgewood CC in Moultonborough. Jake is

Lady Jaguars Avenge Only Loss of Field Hockey Season

by Jacob Gagnon
On Wednesday, October 9, the Windham High School Field
Hockey team made a statement. It was not communicated in words,
but in actions. The Lady Jaguars avenged their only loss of the 2013
season by dominating Portsmouth High School, 5-0, at Windham.
Were doing what we want to do this season, said Head Coach
Amanda Ward. Were going out and making statements.
Portsmouth handed Windham High their frst and only loss of the
season on September 30. The 1-0 loss was an upset considering
Windham has the ingredients of an undefeated squad while
Portsmouth is a middle-of-the road team with a 7-5 record on
the season. The defeat did not demoralize Windham. It merely
refocused them. In Division II, thats how it goes. Anyone can win
on any given day. Today, we just wanted to make sure we were the
ones who won, said Ward. It was nice to come back with a win
today, and a convincing win at that.
Windham took the lead with two goals from forward Justine
Levesque within the frst twenty minutes of the frst half. Much like
the entire game, Windham pressured in the Portsmouth side of the
feld for most of the frst half. Any opportunities that Portsmouth
found on offense were soon halted by a suffocating Jaguar defense
that has not allowed more than three goals over the 12 game stretch
of the season so far, which includes nine shutout victories.
We have such an impressive team, said Ward. Certainly,
were very impressed with the defense from Natalie Boyd. Shes
just always on for us defensively. Freshman Rachel Estes has been
fantastic on defense too.
Windham added one more goal in the frst half by Courtney
Sweeny with fve minutes remaining. The Despite their 3-0 lead,
the Lady Jaguars did not relent in their attack in the last half of the
match. Sweeny found the net again midway through the second
I want to speak highly of Courtney Sweeny and Justine Levesque.
They have put so many goals in the net for us this season, making
sure we walk away with the wins that support the hard work the
whole team is doing, said Ward.
With seconds left in the match, and the victory all but fnal,
Windham took one fnal challenging stab through the Portsmouth
defense. Rachel Rogers hit the corner of the goalpost to earn a
Windham corner. Maddy Joanis scored moments later just before
regulation time ran out.
The improvements from now since the start of the season are
evident to anyone who watches them play, but most of all to Coach
Ward. The way that were communicating and working together
(is our biggest improvement). Just knowing where our teammates
are (on the feld) and what is going to be the most effective decision
for us in that moment, said Ward. They are cohesive. They have
really pulled it all together.
Windham travelled to Milford High School on Friday, October 11.
They defeated Milford, 2-0, to improve to 11-1 on the season.
The Lady Jaguars, who
fell to Lebanon High School
in last seasons Division II
Championship fnale, know what
it takes to get back to the title
match. We need to stay humble,
making sure we keep our vision
clear and that we do the work,
said Ward. With the 5-0 victory
over Portsmouth, Windham has
sent a clear message to other
teams in the state: They are
relentless, focused and only
getting better.

half of Windhams

John Ferri blocks a Pelham shot
by Mike Bourk
Homecoming weekend was sweet for the Jaguars as both girls and
boys soccer teams shut out Pelham.
In the frst half of the double header the Windham girls team
shut out Pelham 8-0. The lady Jags started slowly but that was not
unexpected. The Jaguars head coach, Matt Bryant explains why,
Our style is to try to keep as much possession as we can. We
move the ball from side to side and when successful spaces open up
and as we wear opponents down opportunities to scoring become
Roughly midway through the frst half that style of play bore fruit
in the form of two goals by senior Co-Captain,
Sarah Chau. Later in the half sophomore Hannah
Pesci notched two goals giving Windham a 4-0
lead at the half. Assisting on the frst half goals
were Danielle Fischer, Selena Hansen, and
Clairee Putnam. Coach Bryant talked about how
key Putnam has been to the program, Not a lot
happens without Clairee, shes been our captain
for three years and starting in the middle of our
defense for four years. She has the ability to
calm down other players on our team. Having
her on the feld give our forwards confdence to
take chances and make plays because they know
Clairee is back there.
Windham kept their foot of the throttle
during the second half as Chau tacked on two
more goals. Additional goals were scored by
Haley Psareas and Co-Captain Rachel Vafdes.
Windham is undefeated in soccer this season and
has given up just two goals. Coach Bryant talked
about the changes since last season Last year we
had a very young team and bigger, more physical
teams gave us trouble. Weve sort of grown up
and can play a more physical game. We work
very hard on ftness training and that comes
into play with regards to speed and durability
especially towards the end of a highly competitive
For Pelham, Taylor Burke had several nice
scoring opportunities and Brooke Paradis played
well defensively.
In the second game of the double header the
Windham boys team also pitched a shutout,
beating Pelham 11-0. Senior Andrew Lowman
started the Jaguars scoring the frst of his four
goals just two minutes into the game. Senior
Sam Kauhl also scored three goals in the frst half
the thirds of which was a nicely placed penalty
kick. Rounding out the scoring for Windham
were single goals by junior Matt Laliberte and
sophomore Will Carpenter. Senior Brandon
Dreyfuss also netted two goals.
Windham Coach Michael Hachey assessed
the Jaguars play, There are things weve been
working towards, ball movement being one of
them. They Pelham) have a very dangerous scorer
(Harley Kearney) and by maintaining possession
of the ball we were able to take him out of the game. There were a lot of things I saw
today that I liked but it is just over the midpoint in the season and we still have a lot to
work towards.
On the Pelham side head coach Matt Miller commented about the game as well, We
knew wed have our hands full, they are the best team in Division 2 (Pelham is in Division
3). Eric Rossi and Derek Sage had strong games for us.

Pythons Look Strong and Stay Unbeaten Through Five Games
by Mike Bourk
Last year Somersworth
ended Pelhams season
handing the Pythons a
resounding 35-7 defeat, but
this year is a new season,
a new attitude, and a new
result. Pelham played a
complete game delivering
on offense, defense, and
special teams to take down
the Hilltoppers 28-14. Even
though the score was tied
14-14 in the fourth quarter
there was a feeling in the
air at the Harris Family Field
that the Pythons would not
be denied this victory.
The Hilltoppers head
coach, Don Hodson, gave
his take on the frst half,
We knew how explosive
(Chris) Medeiros was, and I
think we did a pretty good
job of taking that weapon
away from Pelham. What
we did not expect was to see
the other guys step up the
way they did in the fourth
quarter. The other guys
were Brad Kamal and Nick
Johnson. Kamal surprised
some people with his
breakaway speed, especially
on his 57 yard touchdown
run in the fourth quarter.
Junior fullback Nick Johnson
was quite frankly a beast,
relentlessly pounding the
Somersworth d-line and linebackers for positive yardage. Making all
the running possible was an offensive line that consistently picked
up crashing Hilltopper linebackers and opening up the holes for
Pelhams running game. Clark adds Tyler Kosik was playing out of
his usual position this game did an incredible job picking that up.
The Pelham defense shut down a potent Somersworth offense
which was averaging over 32 points per game. The Python defense
was well balanced with Chris Medeiros, Bryce Brown, and Brad
Kamal each recording seven tackles. Zack Masiello recorded two
sacks and Nick DeCarolis had several key tackles including dropping
a Hilltopper runner for a loss on a 4th-and-1 play. Pelhams interior
lineman Dominic Branco, Tom Gleason, and Mahmoud Bagegni did
not record as many tackles as usual because Somersworth seldom
ran up the middle opting to run wide most of the game.
The following week against Winnesquam, Pelham wasted little
time in scoring. On the second play from scrimmage Zack Conway
took a Joe Slattery 45 yards for a touchdown. Chris Benjamin
and Chris Medeiros each ran for frst quarter touchdowns and the
Pythons were on their way to an easy 42-0 victory.
Pelham would be tested in their next game at Epping. The Python
defense, lead by Tyler Kosik, Joe Slattery, and Bryce Brown, would
preserve the 21-7 victory.
Pelham opened the scoring with a 20 yard touchdown run by
Nick Johnson on the Pythons frst drive. In the second quarter Chris
Benjamin scored on a short pass from Joe Slattery and a dazzling
run for a 78 yard touchdown.
The Blue Devils would cut the
defcit to seven in the waning
seconds of the frst half.
The Epping defense
stepped up in the second half
consistently stopping Pelham
on third down. Punter Nolan
Duffy had several good kicks
pinning the Blue Devils deep
in their own end. The Pelham
defense responded shutting
out Epping in the second half.
Several Pelham defenders stood
out in the game. After the
game Epping head coach Ross
Salovitch had this to say 59
(Tyler Kosik) is probably the
best defensive player weve seen this year. He was just everywhere
and our receivers couldnt shake 18 (Bryce Brown).
Also playing well on the Python defense were Chris Benjamin
in pass coverage, Tom Gleason on run defense, and Zack Masiello
(two sacks), and Joe Slattery who had a fumble recovery and an
interception that essentially ended the game.
The only touchdown scored in the second half was a 7 yard run
by Chris Medeiros. Kicker Harley Kearney hit all three extra points
and is now a perfect 21 for 21 in conversion kicks.
Following the game Coach Clark summed up his thoughts
about Epping, They are a very good team, theyre well coached,
and I wouldnt be surprised to see them down the road in the
playoffs. They have solid linebackers and a very good offensive and
defensive line.

Performances at Pelham Invite
by Jacob Gagnon
In cross country, runners battle
