CHS All Stars Perform
with Kenny Rogers
submitted by Jill Deleault, Campbell High School
On Sunday, December 1, several Campbell High School students
and alumni performed with Kenny Rogers under the direction
of CHS music teacher Jill Deleault. The group shared the stage
with Rogers on his 2013 Christmas and Hits Though the Years
Tour during a stop at the Capitol Center for the Arts in Concord.
The concerts rst half featured timeless hits like The Gambler and Islands in
the Stream. Litcheld students sang onstage during the concerts second half for O Holy
Night, Go Tell It On the Mountain, Christmas in America and Joy to the World. They also
performed a featured a capella version of Hark the Herald Angels Sing.
The CHS singers, along with a few select students from other area high schools, made up the
New Hampshire All Star Singers. Jill Deleault founded the select vocal ensemble seven years ago
in partnership with Manchesters historic Palace Theatre. Since then, the group has performed
with music stars including jazz man John Pizzarelli, New Kid on the Block Jordan Knight, Brad
Delp from the band Boston - and now, country music legend Kenny Rogers. P

Hundreds gathered on the town common off of Ferry Street
Friday, November 29 to partake in the annual tree lighting
ceremony. Sponsored by the Hudson Lions Club who meet the
second and last Mondays of every month, the event began with
the Alvirne High School band who serenaded their audience
with classic Christmas music. After hearing a few of their
favorite Christmas melodies, many children were ecstatic to
see Santa Claus arrive in a Hudson re truck. Santa made
his rounds, greeting all in sight, on his way to the gazebo
where the countdown for the tree lighting commenced.
Soon after the tree lighting, a party for all children and
their parents proceeded to take place at the community
center (formerly Lions Hall) where among many crafts
games and activities to enjoy, young ones could sit on
Santas lap and tell him what they would like to get
for Christmas this year.

which cannot be bought or measured with
money, and that is sincerity and integrity,

The Hudson Fish and Game Club delivered
Thanksgiving Dinners to those in the area who
asked for a meal. This year, this small group
provided 1,779 meals to those who asked, with
the help of many volunteers from the community
and many local businesses that donated products
and funds to support this effort.
Our pictures and stories over the many years
have shown that this great group of people
can, and do serve, more and more meals each
year. This year, we will show the meals and the
great volunteers working Wednesday night and
Thanksgiving morning to get them out the door.
But new this year, the Hudson~Litcheld News
was allowed a photograph that has eluded us for
the 15 years that we have covered this event. This
year, the club members agreed to a group picture.
It was 10 a.m. Thanksgiving morning. Six
hundred and fty pounds of potatoes had been
cooked and mashed, as well as equal amounts of
butternut squash and sweet potatoes. Countless
pounds of stufng had been made from scratch
from 300 pounds of ground beef and sausages
and 50 pounds of potatoes. Pans of gravy that
took two men to carry simmered on the stove. It
took over two hours to cook a 60-quart pot of
butternut squash and it was done at 7 a.m. The
pans are big enough to hold two small children!
The side dishes were mashed and mixed with
butter, with the aid of a four-foot long beater/
stirrer powered by a one horsepower drill. The
dedicated club members had been there since 5
a.m., if they had not spent the night there.
Being there Wednesday at 3 p.m., the number
of turkeys cut totaled 132. The dark turkey meat
was pulled into bite size pieces and the breasts
were sliced into quarter inch portions. More
aluminum buffet trays than you care to count
were stored for the next morning. In the indoor
ring range, there were people with peelers who
came to volunteer and most likely left with some
very sore hands and arms. Peeling and cutting
is a very hard job! Watching the different clubs,
including the Junior Rie Team, Girls Scouts and

A Special Treat for
Hudson Seniors
There Is a Battle Looming
by Len Lathrop
Hudson Selectmen and Budget Committee have approached what
one selectman in Tuesdays meeting has called a war.
The Budget Committee, under the guidance of Chairman
John Maltz, has been meeting with department heads and Kathy
Carpentier, the Financial Director, to review and evaluate the
budget the Hudson Selectmen presented to them. This budget will
ultimately be one of the warrant articles the taxpayers will vote on
in March 2014 and will provide the nancial guideline for the scal
year that begins July 1, 2014. During the Monday meeting, after they
completed their review, the Budge Committee moved to essentially
send the budget forward to the Deliberative Session less $629,803,
which is $1 lower than this years current default budget.
Selectmen, in their Tuesday night meeting, voted to reduce their
budget by $100,000 in as a wash account to be offset by revenue for
the senior trips. They also moved to ask the Budget Committee to
identify where they wanted the other cuts to be made.
Selectmen also expressed that they had asked department heads to
come in with less than a 2 percent
increase. Selectman Coutu stated
that the Selectmen had made very
careful spending decisions with
the best interest of the town in
mind. He pointed to the budget
books and showed each section
to the television audience. Over
this budget season, very few
adjustments were made by the
Budget Committee. Selectmen
mentioned that the budget had cut
$600 from the Cemetery Trustees
$1,200 request.
If the Budget Committee and
the Selectmen cannot resolve their
differences, they might have to
do their battle on the oor of the
Deliberative Session where the
voters have a say.

The new center is moving along wonderfully! The interior walls are all up and the
electrician has started marking out his boxes. The windows are all in and the roof is nished.
It wont be long now and the drywall will be up and the siding will be installed.
The turnout for the tree lighting in the town common was so wonderful this past Friday
evening. The band from Alvirne did an amazing job, the carols they played were wonderful.
Thank you to Santa for taking time out of his busy schedule to help out the town by lighting
the common. What a great job the highway department did on their impressive light display.
Now it really feels like the holidays!
Thank you to all the seniors that helped pass out cookies and cocoa to the children and
their families that came to the community center to visit Santa and partake in the crafts.
Happy birthday to all of our friends with a December birthday!
I have been told the holiday party this weekend was great fun, with excellent food! Thank
you to Lucille for organizing another fantastic event.
The Hudson Police Department is holding an Elderly Financial Fraud Prevention Seminar
this Saturday from 2-4pm at the Police Station. All are invited to attend.
This is fair weekend! Go out and support your local crafters. It is amazing to see and
appreciate another persons talents.
The Hudson Girls Scout Troop 10236 has invited the Hudson Seniors to an afternoon of
crafts, games and Christmas carols on December 12. If you would like to join us, please stop
by the community center and sign up on the bulletin board.
There is a new group meeting at the community center on Thursdays called the Silver
Needles. This fun group is going to get together each week and knit, crochet, needle work or
quilt their way through the morning. Bring your own project down and come sit with us!
Instead of being a glass half full or half empty, why not just be satised that you are a
glass with something in it?
We are going to offer a survey for those that are interested in giving feedback about the
new center. The survey will have questions to answer that discuss options for the new center.
There will also be suggestion space for the type of activities and events that you would like to
see happen and those that you will be interested in partaking in. This survey will be available
at the community center, but you can also nd it online at www.hudsonnh.gov under senior
center.
We have been singing Christmas Carols at the Coffee Club on Tuesday mornings the past 2
weeks. The suggestion has been made that we need a piano for the new space. If you have
any information about a piano for the new space and would like to share it, please contact
Lori at lbowen@hudsonnh.gov or call her at 594-1155.
Join us for aerobics or line dancing this Wednesday. Aerobics is at 9 and is $3; line
dancing is at 10:15 and is $2. It is a great way to get some exercise and meet new people.
All abilities are welcome!
For the Kitchen
The recipe I would like to share this week is a holiday favorite and originated in my family
from my aunt Diane. It was given to her by a family friend who grew up in Pennsylvania
Dutch Country.
Potato Filling
10-12 potatoes 5 stalks celery chopped
1 sweet onion chopped 1 cup bread cubes
1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup butter 6 eggs
1/2 cup milk
Peel and boil potatoes then mash in bowl, add butter.
Sautee celery and onions.
Beat eggs in separate bowl and add 1 tablespoon of potatoes to bowl to warm up eggs.
Add celery, onion, bread cubes and eggs to potato mixture. Sprinkle on salt and pepper
and mix with beaters. Add milk slowly while mixing.
Grease 9 x 11 pan.
Spoon mixture into pan and bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes until the edges get
brown.
Serve hot with your meal. It is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
In addition to snacks, hand warmers, socks and other comforts, the stockings also
contained notes written by GFWC Hudson Community Club members including
Mary Sayre, Maureen Speer and Lynn Ashworth.

The Word Around Town...
Letters to our Editor
Te Department of Motor Vehicles states that
Massachusetts requires children under age 8 or
under 57 inches to ride in a federally approved
car seat and those over these restrictions to use a
seatbelt. School buses, however, have neither of
these. Tere is much confusion as to why they are
not required.
Tere are many reasons people are against
requiring seatbelts in buses. One popular reason
is cost. Seatbelts will increase the cost of school
buses and will also decrease the number of
children that can ft on each bus. Tis means the
school will not only have to pay more but they
will also use more buses than before. Many argue
that the costs will outweigh the benefts because
children may use them incorrectly. Yes this is a
possibility, but if children are taught to use them
correctly then the majority of students will use
them correctly. Te act of a child using a seat belt
twice a day for the 180 days of school will help
to reinforce how to correctly use a seatbelt and it
will become habit for them no matter what vehicle
they are in.
School buses are safe because of their
size, weight and set up. Tey have
compartmentalization, which is the protection
of the children between two high-backed padded
seats. It is shown that this can provide protection
from front impact collisions because the padded
seats absorb most of the shock. Tere is still a
possibility that the children could be launched
into the aisles or out windows depending on how
the accident occurs.
Are we really helping our children by allowing
unsafe motor vehicle safety habits? Not wearing
a seatbelt may become habit for them no matter
what vehicle they are in, including cars which are
less safe vehicles than busses. Installing seatbelts
on school buses may not increase the safety of the
buses much, but may help to get children in the
habit of regularly using a seatbelt.
Elizabeth White, Dracut, MA
Seatbelts on School Buses Should be Mandatory Vote No, Yet Taxes Go Up
I just received my tax bill in the mail this week.
Hundreds more dollars that I will have to take from my
personal budget to redistribute to government. And for
what, exactly? It isnt like we all are receiving more in
services is it? I see new police SUVs. Was that in the
town budget from this past March? Nope. We voted that
budget down. Hmm. Where did that money come from?
Oh yeah. Te Board of Selectman found the money at
the bottom of the default budget. How about an entirely
new fancy telephone and voicemail system costing almost
as much as a police SUV? Tat was in the budget, right?
No. Tey did happen to fnd those dollars also. I know.
How about an entirely new comprehensive video and
sound recording system for the police station? Tat had to
be in the budget right? Umm No! Tat was purchased
with a refund of dollars from the Local Government
Center because they were charging us too much for
insurance. Funny how those dollars were re-appropriated.
Now, the BOS will tell you that their portion of the tax
rate has gone down and that would technically be true.
But really. Where do you think government gets its
money from? I mean, we arent the feds ... .we cant simply
print it. It comes from the tax payer. You. I suppose I
could continue to outline what the school district has also
done with extra free money; however, I think you have
gotten the point. Go ahead. Open that envelope you
received from town hall last week and it will detail how
much more you will have to take away from you and your
children so that those that work for us (LOL) dont have
to go without. How they can have better insurance, better
benefts, better equipment. Again, you get my point.
Look, I do not begrudge the average employee for getting
the best deal they can from their employer, I just happen
to believe it shouldnt be better than the average taxpayer
that has to foot the bill. By returning the same nice people
to their seats on these elected Boards only means more of
the same come tax bill season. More for them. Less for
you. Please write letters, show up at a meeting or two or
just make a phone call. Tese folks literally hear from
almost no one and they think they are doing you right.
After all, it is your money and your town.

Exploring the Abenaki
submitted by Stacey Leary
The fourth grade classes at Grifn
Memorial School went back in
time to the 1600s! The students
recently enjoyed a presentation
from the New Hampshire History
Museum on the Abenaki Native
Americans. This tribe was found
living near the Amoskeag Falls in
nearby Manchester. An informative
presentation with detailed pictures
was presented. The students were
also able to handle artifacts and
animal pelts.
The Abenaki were a very
resourceful people in that after
they hunted an animal for survival,
they would use all the parts of the
animal. An animal bladder could
be made into a rattle! The hooves
were turned into paste, tendons
into bow strings, and a jaw bone
and teeth into a comb. We learned
that the European settlers taught
the Indians to create a system of
money. They created purple and
white beads from shells to use as
currency. The purple beads were more rare, and therefore, worth
more.
Have you heard the popular song Rock-a-bye Baby? Its said
that this comes from Native Americans. Europeans wrote the song
after they saw Abenaki women strap their babies to a birch bark
cradle and suspend them from a tree branch. They did this so when
the baby napped the wind would rock them to sleep.
This week the fourth grade classes went on a eld trip to the State
House and NH History Museum in Concord to learn more. We
loved visiting the museum to see the 500 year old Abenaki dugout
canoe that was found at the bottom of Lake Ossipee! We also had
the chance to sit in a wigwam, which was the type of home they
built. Learning about the Abenaki has been so much fun!
Who is Minding the Towns History?
submitted by the Hudson Library Trustees
The Hudson Library Trustees recently presented an Open House
at the Hills Memorial Library Building dealing with the preservation
of the Towns history and heritage. Field Representative Maggie Stier
from the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance, in partnership with
the National Trust for Historic Preservation, conducted a thought-
provoking mini seminar on what New Hampshire communities,
including Hudson, can do to protect and preserve local history and
heritage.
Probing questions on: Who is
responsible for the Towns history,
and what authority do they
have? How can the community
preserve and protect its history?
What techniques work well and
what are the pitfalls to avoid?
were explored in a workshop
forum with questions and
answers. Guests included: New
Hampshire State Senator Sharon
Carson, State Representative
Shawn Jasper, Hudson Historical
Society member Ruth Parker,
Rodgers Memorial Library staff
and Trustees and interested
community members from
Hudson and the surrounding
area.
This presentation was one
of the monthly featured Open
House events held on the third Thursday of the month at the restored
historical Hills Memorial Building, the home of the towns library
between 1909 and the dedication of the George H. and Ella M.
Rodgers Memorial Library which was dedicated in June 2009.
The topic of the December Open House is a presentation on
Holiday Traditions in Medieval Times which is scheduled from 6 to 8
p.m. on December 19.
For more information, call 886-6030 or www.rodgerslibrary.org.
Te fourth grade classes at Grifn Memorial School went back in time to the 1600s!

Alvirne Swimming Team members learning to
handle a peeler or knife is amazing. By the time
they left, they must have had a new understanding
of how many sweet potatoes it takes to ll a
60-quart pot.
If it seems that everything starts on Wednesday,
dont be misled. It was overheard Wednesday
night while working the turkey line, that one of
the Junior Rie Teams adult leaders mentioned
that after practice earlier in the week, they had
taken apart the indoor range and washed the walls
and oor getting ready for the Thanksgiving event.
The CEO of this annual operation for last 25
years is Karen Knox, who keeps trying to pass the
title and duties to her daughter, Tammi Curran.
Tammi has computerized the system so every bag
is labeled and may include special instructions
for the driver, such as which door to go to at the
home. While both mother and daughter shy away
from the spotlight, similar to the club members
working in the Well Cover (the clubs ofcial
hang out), they both work for months on the
Thanksgiving project. One club member spoke
about the club now needing a trailer storage
area just to keep track of the pots and pans
needed to feed all the people. Karen undertook
the leadership in 1988. She mentioned that in
1989 her grandson, Craig Curran, made his rst
Thanksgiving appearance; of course, it was from
a backpack as he was only 8 months old. He
has never known any other Thanksgiving than
that spent at the club. He now makes sure that
the bags are correct before they leave. Karens
granddaughter, Shelby Monas, who also started
on day one in a backpack, was excited this year
because she could be a delivery driver and bring
meals to the people. Her grandmother mentioned
that she handpicked the stops for Shelby and
seemed as excited as the new driver.
This report started with a quote that ends with
the words, sincerity and integrity. Having been
at the Well Cover early Thursday morning, the
one thing that the club members wanted to be
sure of was that there was a Thumbs Up in the
paper that thanked everybody who helped make
this Thanksgiving event so special. More than
one member requested the Thumbs Up to thank
everyone involved. These men and women, who
you might or might not know, worked tirelessly
to make this event a huge success. They gave
up sleep and time with their families during the
holiday. Never once did anyone hear anything
other than to be sure to thank everyone involved
with the clubs Thanksgiving event. It was sincere,
and their integrity could not be questioned.
Everything was selessly done for those who
needed these meals. The meals are only a small
symbol of the goodness that happens every day
when people are looking out for others.

Being Santa Author Visit at
Rodgers Memorial Library
Sal Lizard signs books at Rodgers Memorial Library.
by Laurie Jasper
Twas one month before Christmas when all about town,
Thoughts of turkey, stufng and family abound.
Yet at Rodgers Memorial Library on November twenty-ve,
The true joy of Christmas came alive.
The library hosted an author visit and book signing that night,
And the guest of honor made all spirits bright.
Sal Lizard is the author of Being Santa Claus: What I learned
about the True Meaning of Christmas. He held the adult audience
at Rodgers Memorial Library spellbound with his stories and life
lessons from over 20 years of bringing happiness to people, young
and old. Every Santa has stories, Sal shared. Being Santa helps
give everyone I meet a chance to be a child again. Im Santa
no matter what Im wearing, said Sal. Indeed, he was dressed
casually at the book talk, yet there was no mistaking the man with
the white hair, long beard and jolly laugh.
A red suit and a white beard does not a Santa make, you have
to hone in on emotional transmissions from children and adults.
The real magic of Christmas is when you do something, even
inadvertently, that enhances the life of a child, Sal said.
Throughout the evening, Sal shared stories from his book,
which is available in both hardcover and paperback. He also
told new anecdotes which may be included in his next book.
Many stories made the audience smile and laugh, but a few
poignant stories brought tears to everyone, including Sal. Sal is
a genuine Santa who brings the spirit of Christmas wherever he
goes. Please visit his website www.genuinesanta.com for his
schedule, to request a visit from Santa or to purchase a book for
your collection.
Smokey Bear Makes Camp on CBH
submitted by Litcheld Fire
Department
A new daily re danger sign,
complete with a full-size Smokey
Bear, has been installed along the side
of Charles Bancroft Highway (CBH) to
aid residents in keeping up with the
daily re danger and whether or not
the re department is issuing outdoor
burning permits.
Call Fireghter Seth Miller designed
and crafted the sign, donating his
time and talents as an award winning
wood work craftsman to construct the
new sign. Several other members of
the department assisted with setting
the foundation for the sign, painting
and installation of the sign across
the street from the re station last
weekend. Thank you also to the
Litcheld Highway Department for
their assistance with clearing the
brush and digging the holes for the
sign posts.
The new sign will replace the
smaller sign that was in the shape of a
tree and mounted on the front of the
re station and not easily read while
traveling along CBH.
The sign will indicate the
following daily re dangers
as established by the New
Hampshire Division of
Forests and Lands. It also will
indicate whether or not the re
department is issuing permits.
What does the re danger class
day mean?
o Class 1: Low res are not
likely, it may be raining.
o Class 2: Moderate res are
possible in light fuels, day after
a rain.
o Class 3: High Fuels in open
areas and sunny slopes may
spread rapidly.
o Class 4: Very high res start
easily from all causes; res
spread and increase in intensity
rapidly; spot res occur; re
will burn deep, except in the
spring.
o Class 5: Extreme res will
spread very rapidly with severe
spotting; difcult to extinguish,
mop-up requires a great deal
of effort.
The Litcheld re department
will not issue permits on a Class
3 or higher day.

Shortly after 1 p.m. on Monday, December 2, Hudson reghters
were notied of a motor vehicle crash into a telephone pole in
the area of 76 Derry Road. While the re companies operated at
this scene, a second call was received from the Back Street Bar &
Grill also at 76 Derry Road for a smoke condition in the building.
At 1:12 p.m., reghters from the Central and Burns Hill Stations
and a Nashua ladder truck manning three engines, one ladder
and three command vehicles were sent to the scene. First arriving
reghters reported nothing showing from the one-story shopping
mall. Upon entering the building, a smoke condition was found in
the restaurant.
The patrons in the restaurant had evacuated before the arrival of
reghters. Adjoining businesses were evacuated by arriving re
companies. As reghters stretched a hoseline and searched for the
cause of the smoke in the building, the Nashua crew went to the
roof and found a small re in a roof top air conditioning and heating
unit that pumped the smoke through the ductwork into the building.
Once the re was extinguished, smoke ejector fans were used to
clear the smoke from the unit. The towns health ofcer was called
to the scene to handle any health issues related to the smoke in the
restaurant.
There were a total of 16 reghters and incident commanders
on the scene. The re was controlled at 1:55 p.m. No civilian or
reghter injuries were reported. The cause of the re was found
to be an electrical malfunction, very possible related to the earlier
motor vehicle crash.
Fire companies from Nashua, Londonderry and Litcheld covered
the Hudson stations during the re.

Dental
Implants are
an exciting
treatment
option that
has changed
the lives of
many
people.
People that
presently wear complete or
partial dentures, or have one
or more missing teeth, are
good candidates for dental
implants.
Parameters that determine
the feasibility of implants for an
individual must be carefully
assessed. A through medical
history and consultation, as
well as a complete dental
examination including models
and other diagnostic tests are
necessary.
The greatest advantage of
implants is they are fixed like
natural teeth and allow for
permanent replacement of
teeth.
Their applications are varied
depending upon the individual's
particular need. They may be
used to replace a single tooth
without the need to involve
adjacent teeth, or they may be
used in connection with other
natural teeth as an abutment
(anchor) for a fixed bridge.
Without such, a removable
denture is the only alternative.
Implants may also be placed
underneath a complete denture
to allow for positive mechanical
retention, where otherwise there
is none.
It takes a dedicated team of
professionals made up of a
dentist, an oral surgeon, and
you for successful implantology.
You must be committed to
excellent oral hygiene. Regular
professional dental care is
necessary, since the supporting
structures around the implant
may become diseased if not
maintained properly.

At 12:08 p.m., Wednesday, November 27, reghters from the
Robinson Road, Central and Burns Hill Stations manning four
engines, one ladder and two command vehicles were alerted to
a house re at 61 Rangers Drive. The re alarm dispatch center
answered numerous calls from the residents of the home. First
arriving reghters reported
nothing showing from the two-
story single family home. Upon
entering the building, a smoke
condition was found with a re
in the basement of the home.
A heavy smoke condition
lled the basement as reghters
advanced a hose line into
the building and primary and
secondary searches for anyone
that may have still been inside
were completed. Several
occupants escaped the home
before arrival of the reghters.
Fireghters were successful in
stopping the re, containing it to
a small area in the basement.
There were a total of 14
reghters and incident
commanders on the scene.
Fireghters had the bulk of
the re knocked down within
14 minutes. No civilian or
reghter injuries were reported.
The cause of the re is under

being estimated.

Dazzling Holiday Party Looks
From Head to Toe
(BPT) - Tis the season for glitzing up a spar-
kling holiday look. From ofce parties and family
gatherings to community events and charity galas,
now is the time to look and feel your best. It may
be a hectic time of year, but with a little prepara-
tion and creativity you can dazzle all season long.
Try these quick and easy tips from beauty and
style expert Jennifer Walsh for a stellar head-to-toe
holiday look:
* Start with your hairstyle. Create a chic and
classic look by pulling your hair back into a
simple ponytail and embellish with a jeweled
headband to shine in the festive
holiday lights. Complete the
look with understated stud ear-
rings.
* When it comes to makeup
this holiday season, you can be
more daring with your eyes and
lips. A deep smoky eye in shades
of gray, bronze or plum is sure to
turn up any look. If you are look-
ing to catch someone special un-
der the mistletoe, nothing stands
out more than a bold red lip.
* For your nails, opt for a
gel manicure in a neutral hue
that will go from day to night.
The gel nish will last for weeks
without chipping - no matter
how many presents you wrap
or parties you attend. Moreover,
it will save you the time, hassle
and expense of multiple visits to
the nail salon.
* A sleeveless black dress is
perfect for the holidays, allowing
you to attend a variety of events
by changing just a few accessories.
Choose two elements of your look
to introduce shine, texture or color.
I often go for a bold statement neck-
lace or add a glitzy belt. On those
chilly nights, incorporate a simple
wrap or cardigan.
* When wearing sleeveless styles,
some women are uncomfortable
with the appearance of their under-
arms. If you are one of the 32 mil-
lion U.S. women who experience
underarm red and dark marks, you
can remedy the situation with Dove
Clear Tone Deodorant. It will also provide 48-hour
odor and wetness protection for when you are
cozied up in front of the replace.
* Finish your outt by selecting a pair of eye-
catching shoes with metallic studs or jeweled
trim. They are a great way to show off your per-
sonality and are sure to turn heads.
Follow these tips to create a holiday style that is
all your own and get ready to hit the town while
enjoying the seasons festivities with family, friends
and loved ones.

The Holiday Season Made Easy
(BPT) - Tis the season of wonderful company and delicious food!
Its also that time of year to bring friends and family together, but
preparing for holiday gatherings along with the hustle and bustle
of holiday shopping can often be stressful and time consuming. In
fact, Thanksgiving is the most stressful holiday for home cooks as
more than one in three Millennials plans to host a gathering at their
home and 57 percent have noted feeling pressure when preparing
a holiday meal, according to the Allrecipes 2013 Annual Holiday
Survey. Following are a few easy
tips to simplify your holiday plan-
ning so you can spend more time with loved ones.
Shopping survival
From picking up last minute items on your gift list to gathering
groceries for the big dinner, holiday shopping can be hectic. Before
you shop til you drop, pack a quick and easy snack in an insulated
cooler bag to get through the midday craze (and hunger pangs). Bag
assorted fresh veggies and pair with a dip like Marzetti Otria Greek
Yogurt Veggie Dip. The dips are available in ve different avors
from Garden Herb Ranch to Cucumber Dill Feta - a great way to
add extra avor to veggies.
Mingle at the veggie bar
Before guests arrive, create a
colorful vegetable bar away from
the kitchen for snacking and
mingling before the big meal. Ar-
range the bar with a unique array
of pre-cut veggies such as snap
peas, asparagus, mushrooms, and
peppers. Accompany the veggies
with a variety of Marzetti Otria
Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip avors
like Spinach Artichoke and Cara-
melized Onion. These quick and
tasty snacks keep guests occupied
before the meal and helps keep
last-minute stress at a minimum.
Prepare for hungry guests
Ensure your guests are feel-
ing satised with every course!
Prepare a mixed green salad and
top it with Marzetti Refrigerated
Salad Dressings-such as Chunky
Blue Cheese and Classic Ranch,
made with premium ingredients
to deliver a fresh avor. Then add
a little crunch with New York
Brand Croutons for a crispy yet
tender taste, full of robust avors.
Both the dressings and croutons
are available in several varieties
to satisfy any palette. Your guests
wont leave hungry!
The season for recipe sharing
Ease the pressure of nding
the perfect recipe by asking your
friends to share their favorite holi-
day recipes with you on Pinterest
and Facebook.- Serving recipes
that are recommended by friends
takes the worry out of trying a
new recipe.
Friendsgiving potluck
Not traveling home this year
and still want to celebrate the
holiday? Invite your friends to join
in the celebration by hosting a
Friendsgiving potluck. Friends-
giving is becoming an annual
tradition celebrated either on or
around the Thanksgiving holiday
among friends, according to the
2013 Evite Holiday Party Trend
Report. Ask each friend to bring
their favorite holiday dish and
swap recipes after the meal is
complete. A potluck is a fun way
to lighten the load in the kitchen,
try new recipes and it makes
cleanup much easier.

your holiday menu, visit www.

Thumbs Up? Thumbs Down? Thumbs Up? Thumbs Down?
Thumbs up and thank you to all the folks and
business that support our annual Thanksgiving
meal for those in need. Your support allowed us
to provide dinner to over 1,779 people. Without
your support we wouldnt have been able to
provide dinner. Hudson Fish and Game Club
Thumbs up. Backstreet Bar & Grill are
forever grateful to our Hudson and Nashua Fire
Departments for coming to our rescue, assessing
our problems, and in a quick manner, resolving
our problems without any damage to our business.
What an awesome job. Thank you, Randy, Len,
and the Staff.
Thumbs up to everyone that only drives
sober!
Thumbs up to Barb Towne from Litcheld!
She is an incredible kind and loving person! She
has been volunteering in the Litcheld school
system for many years. Especially in the GMS
Chorus. She is an inspiration to many people in
her community. Thank you Barb Towne for all you
do for your
community
and others!
Thumbs
down to
Litchelds
Jason
Guerrette
letter in the
11/8/2013
HLN. Many
of us who do
criticize you
anonymously
in the
Thumbs do so
because we
are frightened
of your
behaviour
if you knew
who we
were. We
have seen
evidence
of this
dangerously
short fuse
during
school board
meetings and
other events/
incidents/
neighbors.
We worry
about our
personal
safety and the
safety of our
families.
Thumbs
up to the
girl who had
the courage
to get up in
front of a
whole school,
and do the
bullying
presentation
at Campbell
High School,
and then
share your
story. I would have never had the courage to
share do what you did. You showed tremendous
courage to share your experience with all of us
and you really touched a lot of students in that
room. A lot of us didnt pay attention to what we
were saying to other people. Now, thanks to your
excellent presentation, people are realizing their
impact on how their words affect people.
Thumbs down to the Hudson School Board
Member who thinks they are not getting their
money worth from the districts custodians, That
we Just hang around really?
Youre kidding us right?
Thumbs up to Seth Miller
and his crew for a Great Job on
the new Smokey Bear sign in
Litcheld.
Thumbs down. What has
this section become? The
Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down
section of my youth was a place
for petty complaints about
local restaurants and squabbles
between neighbors - now its
become a place to whine about
Obama every week. Also,
thumbs down to the neighbor
down the road who lets his dog
pee on my mailbox and poop on
my lawn.
Thumbs up to the wonderful woman who my
daughter and I met at market basket while waiting
in line. While I was nishing checking out she
came back with a gift of a dancing Santa for my
daughter. Thank you and happy
holidays!
Thumbs down to the Hit
and Run driver of the pickup
truck that sideswiped the black
minivan sitting in the turning
lane waiting to turn left onto
Ledge from Route 102 (near
Pizza Hut) on November 26th
at approximately 5 p.m. It was
dark so I didnt get the license
plate number. If you see a
pickup truck with a freshly
dented drivers side front fender,
please notify the Hudson Police
with details at 603-886-6011.
Thumbs up to Once Upon
A Time. I love the Evil Queen.
I always knew she had good in
her.
Thumbs up to all the members of the Hudson
Fish and Game Club who worked to feed those
in need on Thanksgiving. The time and energy
everyone put in to this effort is amazing and you
all step up every Thanksgiving.
Thumbs up to the First Annual Litcheld Turkey
Bowl! Over 80 players attended and fun had by
all. Cant wait for next year!
Thumbs up to the Campbell High School Cast
and Crew of Guys and Dolls! Great show and
well done!
Thumbs down to the local dentist who
still uses old technology, yet charges the same
as dentists with new equipment. Im done
exposing myself to radiation from your old X-ray
equipment.
Thumbs down to remote
car starters and idling cars.
Must be the same people
that dont believe in climate
change.
Thumbs down to any
elected persons spouse or
family member working
for the school district.
Specically the former
chair DM and new chair
DB. How can you remain
objective about giving
out pay increases when it
directly impacts you or your
friends? We all see your
Facebook pictures hanging
out with each other. Look at the town report. You
will then see how this cronyism works. Shouldnt
district pay increases be the voters choice on a
separate warrant anyway? These are the dirty little
secrets arent they? All connected. Scratching
each others back while taking taxpayer money. Is
there no shame anymore?
Thumbs up to Alvirnes WATS club and other
students and staff who donated 75 pies to the
Hudson Fish and Game Thanksgiving Dinner.
More thumbs up to the Alvirne FACS club for
making pan after pan of apple crisp for that
same meal. And Thumbs up to Fish and Game
for organizing such a big effort and to all of the
dozens of Alvirne students who pared, chopped,
sliced, and served food for the Thanksgiving
meal.
Thumbs up to the true meaning of Christmas.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only
Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish
but have eternal life. John 3:16
Thumbs up and a great big thank you to Karen
Bonney, Alvirnes Athletic Director for coming to
our rescue and providing the concessions with an
alternate power source during the Junior ROTC
Drill Meet on November 23rd. Alvirnes JROTC
Boosters love you!
Thumbs down to the tree service who worked
on cutting trees down along Gowing Road.
Shame on you for leaving your trash along the
side of the road or in the woods.
Thumbs down to Hudson Selectmen who
want to put ban on panhandlers over at the
bridge. They decided to feed their families. If
they were in that predicament I think they would
do the same thing. One selectman says he has
personally seen four or ve of them sitting there
and going into brand new cars. I dont personally
see that and then he says he witnessed an
automobile accident because somebody stopped
at a green light to give one of these panhandlers
money and somebody rear ended him. Obviously
the person behind him wasnt paying attention
and they were probably traveling too close. Town
of Hudson, please reconsider what youre trying
to do.
Thumbs up to Pizza Places in Hudson. They
all have a specialty item that makes it hard to
decide who to call. Decisions, Decisions.
Thumbs up Its so nice to see the Christmas
decorations going up at so many homes. Makes
the holiday season much more special.
Thumbs up Its great to hear so many young
kids and teens saying Please and Thank You
someone brought them up right. So many people
just complain about them. Have some patience
and remember back when you were a kid.
Thumbs down to this electronic age. What
happened to people actually talking to each
other? What happened to calling a business
and getting a real person, not press ve different
numbers and still get no where. What happened
to writing letters or sending cards in the mail?
Now its all done electronically. How personal is
that? It isnt.

The high cost of home heating fuels and utilities have caused
many residents to search for alternate sources of home heating. The
use of wood burning stoves, pellet stoves and space heaters is very
commonplace and growing. All these methods of heating are major
contributing factors in residential res. Many of these res can be
prevented.
The Hudson Fire Department provides chimney cleaning brushes
free of charge to Hudson residents to prevent chimney res from
taking place and offers the following re safety tips to help you
remain safe during the winter heating season.
Kerosene Heaters
Be sure your heater is in good working condition. Inspect exhaust
parts for carbon buildup. Be sure the heater has an emergency
shutoff in case the heater is tipped over.
Never use fuel burning appliances without proper room venting.
Burning fuel (coal, kerosene or propane, for example) can
produce deadly fumes.
Use only the fuel recommended by the heater manufacturer.
Never introduce a fuel into a unit not designed for that type of
fuel.
Keep kerosene, or other ammable liquids stored in approved
metal containers, in well ventilated storage areas, outside of the
house.
Never ll the heater while it is operating or hot. When refueling
an oil or kerosene unit, avoid overlling. Do not use cold fuel for
it may expand in the tank as it warms up.
Refueling should be done outside of the home or outdoors.
Keep young children away from space heaters, especially when
they are wearing night gowns or other loose clothing that can be
easily ignited.
When using a fuel-burning appliance in the bedroom, be
sure there is proper ventilation to prevent a buildup of carbon
monoxide.
Wood Stoves And Fireplaces
Wood stoves and replaces are common heat source in homes.
Careful attention to safety can minimize their re hazard.
Be sure the replace or stove is installed properly. Woodstoves
should have adequate clearance from combustible surfaces and
proper oor support and protection.
Woodstoves should be of good quality, solid construction and
design, and should be UL listed.
Have the chimney inspected annually and cleaned if necessary,
especially if it has not been used for some time.
Do not use ammable liquids to start or accelerate any re.
Keep a glass or metal screen in front of the replace opening, to
prevent embers or sparks from jumping out, unwanted material
from going in, and to help prevent the possibility of burns to
occupants.
Do not use excessive amounts of paper to build a roaring re in a
replace. It is possible to ignite creosote in the chimney by over
building the re.
Never burn charcoal indoors. Burning charcoal can give off lethal
amounts of carbon monoxide.
Keep ammable materials away from your replace mantel. A
spark from the replace could easily ignite these materials.
Before you go to sleep, be sure your replace re is out. Never
close your damper with hot ashes in the replace. A closed
damper will help the re heat up again and will force toxic
carbon monoxide into the house.
If synthetic logs are used, follow the directions on the package.
Never break a synthetic log apart to quicken the re or use more
than one log at a time. They often burn unevenly, releasing higher
levels of carbon monoxide.
Pellet Stoves
The heating efciency, eco-friendliness, and overall price for
wood pellet stoves have convinced many buyers to go this route.
In some areas, sales have outgrown the availability of this heating
alternative. Like any other stove, a pellet stove requires time and
attention on a regular basis. Here are a few considerations to keep
in mind:
First-generation pellet stoves may have kinks that will be corrected
in successive models. Choose a brand that has proven itself over
the years.
Let the manufacturers operations manual serve as a guide in
cleaning, maintaining and troubleshooting the pellet stove.
The pellets are made of sawdust and the byproduct of this burning
is carbon monoxide. Install a carbon monoxide (CO) detector
within ten feet of the pellet stove. Make sure that the smoke
detectors in the household are in working order.
Solid sterno or re starting blocks which are sold for replaces do
not work well with wood pellet stoves. To get a wood pellet stove
to light, use the manufacturers recommended liquid accelerant
designed to mix with the pellets.
Never put any accelerant into a hot burn pot with active coals. If
your re goes out, allow it to cool before re-lighting.

Alvirne to Host First Ever Pre-Season Basketball Jamboree
by Len Lathrop with Game Summaries from NH Sports Page
As local high schools continue to practice for the upcoming
basketball season, several well-known sports coaches came together
to develop a situation where different teams from different divisions
could practice their game plans and plays on other teams.
Alvirne opens at Manchester Memorial on December 17 for a
season that ends at the end of February, before playoffs.
The idea behind the event is to have eight of the top teams from
Division I New Hampshire high school basketball teams face off
against eight of the top Division II and Division III programs in a
game their fans can attend as they would a regular season game.
This is a two-day event that will raise money for the New Horizons
charity and serve as the tip-off event for the 2013-2014 boys
basketball season.
Kevin Bonney and Pete Tarrier selected the teams and match-
ups, while Dave Keefe of Trinity, Seth Garon of Alvirne and Tim
Goodridge of Merrimack helped in planning the event.
Games to be played Friday night December 6 at Alvirne High
school:

A local rivalry as Rob McLaughlins Blue Devils square off with
Todd Steffanides Windham Jaguars in the events opening match-
up.
6:30 p.m.: Bishop Guertin vs. Bishop Brady
The runner-up in Division I last season takes on a Bishop Brady
team that will be among the favorites in Division II. Brothers
Jourdain and Joe Bell lead Mark Yeatons Giants against Jim
Migneaults talented BG team led by John Noon, Jack Zimmerman
and point guard CJ Boykin.
8 p.m.: Merrimack vs. Pelham
Two teams that will be among the top ve pre-season teams in
their division square off as Eric Gendron leads the Tomahawks
against sophomore Keith Brown and Pelham. Tim Goodridges

Regans Pythons have a wealth of talent that includes Jake
Vaiknoras and Ryan Frank.
Games to be played on Saturday, December 7 at Alvirne High
School:
12 noon: Alvirne vs. Newport
One of the better basketball programs in Division I squares off
against a Newport Tigers team featuring players lounge member
Andrew Houde that will be one of the favorites to win the
Division III title. Seth Garons Broncos feature sharp shooter Tyler
Brown while Steve Lavolpicelos Tigers will feature guard Spencer
Coronis.
1:30 p.m.: Spaulding vs. Lebanon
Two nal four teams square off in the second game of the
afternoon. Tim Cronins Red Raiders will be led by big men
Charlie Nevejans and Anthony Ciccotelli as they begin their quest
for a third consecutive trip to UNH. Keith Mattes Raiders will
feature a talented young team featuring Austin Whaley, Dominick
Morrill and Austin Pelletier.
3 p.m.: Bedford vs. Portsmouth
The two teams that met in the 2012 Division II title game renew
acquaintances as Mike Fitzpatricks Bulldogs square off with Jim
Mulveys Clippers. Bedford will be a nal four contender and is
led by their backcourt of Taylor Grande and Cameron Meservey.
Portsmouth will be led by players lounge members Pat Glynn and
Donovan Phanor and are an annual threat to win the Division II
title.

weekend, the Big Green of Central take on the best basketball
program in the state when they clash with the Orioles. Doc
Wheelers Central team will boast a backcourt as good as any
in the state behind Dawson Dickson, Brett Hanson and Mike
Plentzas. Eric Sauciers Conant squad, meanwhile, will feature
one of the best players in the state in lounge member Rob OBrien
and teammate Eli Hodgson.
6 p.m.: Trinity vs. Pembroke Academy

Having accomplished so much on the
athletic front since he walked on to the Lowell
campus, Tyler has not lost sight of his academic
endeavors. Saying that the professors inform
engineering students immediately upon entering
the classroom that engineering is a 40 hour
per week deal, Livingston acknowledges the
difculties of pursuing two goals simultaneously.
Balancing academics and basketball is really
tough, he expressed, adding; some nights
you dont get a lot of sleep. In recognizing the
accomplishments of All-American scholar athletes
at the collegiate level, Livingston revealed his
newfound appreciation; those people I have so
much respect for.
It was always my dream as a kid, recalled
Tyler of his desire to play Division I college
basketball. Whether or not he dreams while
catching a few winks in his Leitch dorm room on
campus, Livingston has certainly had his dreams
come true on the hardwood. With respect to
his being accepted as a walk-on, on a team that
is comprised mostly of recruited scholarship
players, Livingston said of his mates both on and
off the court; the team is cool. I received a lot
of support from teammates (theyre) always
encouraging me. Additionally, he commended
Duquette and his staff; the coaches are
awesome, they take an interest in everyone.
During the trip to Ann Arbor, Livingston
indicated; there was a point when playing
Michigan - looking up at all the people I said this
is unreal, whats happening right now.
What has happened is that the story-beginning
quips of things happen for a reason and right
place, right time have gathered some credence
to their claims. And combined with a good work
ethic and desire to succeed, I do believe Tyler
is cognizant of what is happening right now;
Coming from a town as small as Hudson, I never
thought it would be possible. I put in a lot of
work. Im proud of it and happy to see it paid off
in the end.

Former Bronco Tyler Livingston; Enjoying The Walk at UML
by Marc Ayotte
The phrase things happen for a reason has always been one
of my least favorite sayings. Yet pretty much every person I know
walking the planet has turned philosophical at some point and
uttered the cringing words. And in the case of former Alvirne High
standout basketball player Tyler
Livingston, another saying,
which isnt quite as abrasive
to yours truly, is certainly also
applicable; being at the right
place at the right time.
Nevertheless, and pertinent
sayings aside, lets bring a little
home town avor to Livingstons
recent climb up the basketball
ladder. In car racing-analogous
terms, Tyler has gone from the
small town track of Hudson
Speedway to the turbo-charged,
super high speed asphalt of
the German Autobahn. In a
short and volatile ve month
period, Livingston went from
being a standout athlete in
the Steckevicz Gymnasium to
virtually having no collegiate
round ball in his future to ultimately playing on the biggest stage
the NCAA has to offer. And, as a current Walk-On for Division I,
University of Massachusetts-Lowell, Livingston has taken his talents
to improbable heights.
While sitting in the Costello Gymnasium on the campus of UML
after the Hawks had dismantled D-III Mount Ida by the score of
73-45 on Sunday, December 1 for their rst win of the season,
Livingston commented on his last game as a Bronco. I nished
my career on a positive note, reected Livingston, on his stellar
29-point performance against rival Bishop Guertin. That seemed
like a lifetime ago, but what was current was the fact that he nailed
a patented Tyler-tres just 30 seconds into the Mount Ida game,
staking the Hawks to a 3-0 lead and setting the tone for the eventual
blowout.
But like the title of singer Robin Thickes mega hit, the transition
from high school D-I to college D-I has left the former two sport
AHS star seeing Blurred Lines. The biggest difference is everything
is so fast, noted Livingston. In assessing his season-opening
performance, Livingston was quite critical; my rst game was a
nightmare, things were moving too fast and I wasnt prepared for it.
Continuing with the observation of increased intensity and talent
found at this level, he added; any weakness you have is exploited
right away.
So, one might ask how did Livingston nd himself in this
unimaginable scenario of playing basketball at the highest collegiate
level possible?
Born in the Mill City on September 29, 1994, Tyler, for the time
being, has seen his life come full circle. He
moved from Lowell to Hudson where he attended
rst grade at the Library Street School and then
continued on to Hudson Memorial. During those
formative years, Livingston played in the Hudson
Rec league on travel teams coached by Paul
Martineau as well as on an AAU team coached
by Bob Boissonneault; he really taught me a lot
about basketball, credited Livingston of his coach
who is currently the Athletic Director at Nashua
Catholic J.H.S.
It was between middle school and high school
that Livingston recalls having incurred the growth
spurt that has seen him reach his current 6 foot
5 inch, 200 pound frame. It was also the time
frame that set the stage for his four year hoops
relationship with Bronco varsity basketball coach
Seth Garon.
As far as what Livingston learned on the court
from his coach, he offered; being with Coach
Garon all four years got me into a shooters
mentality. Garon, while acknowledging he
(Tyler) was always a good shooter, also pointed
out to his former star player that he might be in a
pretty good position with respect to solidifying his
walk-on bid at Lowell, despite it being a Division
I program. However, before his decision to attend
UML, Livingston appreciated Garons assistance
in the overall college selection process; He was
really helpful. He would go out of his way to link
me up with some D-3 schools.
Unlike his time at the high school level where
Livingston, according to Garon; created a lot
of matchup problems, his role at the next level
would take on a different dimension. He was in
a good spot athletically and physically, explained
Garon with respect to Tylers prospective duties
in a River Hawk uniform. More specically,
the Bronco coach told Livingston that due to
his stature and shooting ability, his contribution
would involve coming off screens and knocking-
down jump shots, which is certainly what has
transpired early on.
After a successful four year stint with the
Broncos that culminated in being named NHIAA
2nd team All-State in his senior season, Livingston
picked up his diploma in June and from there,
the rest of the story enters fast forward mode.
After receiving looks from Worcester Polytechnic
Institute (WPI) and University of Rochester, both
strong in the engineering eld of which he wanted
to pursue academically, Livingston was faced with
a gut wrenching decision. Because of the non-
existence of athletic scholarships at the D-III level,
he decided to opt-out of playing for the Goats.
I was accepted at WPI and was going to play,
recalled Tyler, adding, but I decided on UML for
nancial reasons.
While weighing his options during the summer
of 2013, Tyler was employed at Vesper Country
Club, working for tips in the club shack of the
prestigious golf course located in Tyngsborough, Massachusetts.
Having been a supreme striker of the pill for Alvirnes golf team,
Livingston found himself at home at the nearby course which, as
things revealed; membership had its privileges. Although not a
member himself, it was a summer contact with a prominent member
of the exclusive country club who had certain ties to UML that
started the ball rolling. A phone call to the Athletic Director, a
subsequent call to the basketball head coach and things were taking
shape.
Its the next event that the right place, right time aspect of Tylers
journey really kicked into overdrive. I was just walking right out
here in front of Costello (gymnasium), recalled Livingston of his
fateful encounter with his soon to be head coach. A man talking
on his cell phone while also walking in front of the gym stopped
and directed a pair of questions at the surprised passerby; How
tall are you? and Are you Tyler Livingston? After a pair of correct
responses by the current No. 24, Head Coach Pat Duquette followed
up with, Lets meet up in the next couple of days.
In the ensuing weeks, Livingston played in daily intra-team
scrimmages at the UML Rec Center where coaches took notice.
After several sightings of his talent on the hardwood, Livingston
recalls being summoned to the head coachs ofce. What resulted
was Coach Duquette telling Tyler that he was being awarded a spot
on the team as a walk-on, though with no assurance or guarantee
of playing time. He brought me into his ofce after one of the
practices and told me he was going to let me have one of the spots
on the team, said Livingston, with a ashback smile. Originally I
never thought I would play here, he admitted, adding; I was going
to try and be a walk-on, but that was a long shot.
Since then, he has gone from being a long shot to make the squad
to making long shots on the court; emerging as a lethal River Hawk
threat from beyond the arc. Acknowledging that a big part of his
role while on the court is to knock-down the long range jumper,
Livingston has obliged; shooting a very respectable 42.5 percent
(17-40) from trifecta land. His prociency from downtown has
included multiple, three-point shooting nights in all but one of the
Hawks rst seven contests. While averaging over 33 minutes of
playing time per game reective of his breaking into the starting
lineup - Livingston has also averaged 4.5 boards per game along
with scoring over 9 points per game.
In a preseason battle with Patriot League member Holy Cross,
Livingston had a big night, scoring over 20 points; I didnt miss
many shots, it was fun, recounted the walk-on frosh. In looking
back at the game against the Crusaders, Tyler admitted; that was the
turning point to this whole run that Im on right now. But the stage
became even bigger when the River Hawks traveled to Ann Arbor,
Michigan for the season opener against the Big Ten Conference
powerhouse Wolverines.
I had nothing to lose, I was so excited to be there, expressed
Livingston regarding his rst collegiate regular season game. And on
November 8, Livingston more than held his own, going 4-11 from
the oor (two triples) while pulling down a team-high nine boards
(personal season best) in 32 minutes of action. It was my rst time
shooting in a dome, noted Livingston of playing in the spacious
connes of the 12,000 seat Crisler Center. The depth perception is
weird; it was like learning to shoot all over again.
Included in the big stage encounter against Michigan was an
individual battle which saw Livingston go up against next years
prospective NBA top 10 selection, Glenn Robinson III. He guarded
me for a little bit, exclaimed Livingston. And after joking with Tyler
by saying he (Robinson) couldnt shut you down, the UML rookie
responded with a grin; I dont know about that.
In the rst six games of the season, the River Hawks have also
traveled to Cincinnati, Boston University and Dartmouth College.
In an ESPN three televised affair against the oft-nationally ranked
Bearcats, Livingston shot 60 percent from the eld, including 3-4
from three point land. The speed they played with - I never saw it
before, said Livingston of Cincinnatis run and gun style offense.
With parents Mike and Terry Livingston trying to attend all of his
games, Tyler experienced some additional family love when the
team traveled to Boston on November 13. It was against the Terriers
that his brother, Will, who is a student at BU, completed the support
group by attending the game. In addition to family, Tyler noted that
he has received support from friends. Most notably, he mentioned
that former AHS classmates Tyler Brown and Dan Kingsley made
the trek to Dartmouth to watch their friend score 12 points, which
included burying three of four triple attempts.
Looking for an opening in the lane, UMLs Tyler Livingston, #24, drives
around a pick set by teammate James McDonnell.
Tyler Livingston wasted little time, nailing this trifecta just 30 seconds into the
River Hawks game at home against Mount Ida.
