Spring!
by S. Aaron Shamshoyan
Good food shared with friends, as well as an
award in his honor, made sense as a way to honor
Chief John P. Ganley. Just ask George Khoury,
Judge Robert Marshall, Derry Police Chief Edward
Garone, former Town Manager Don Jutton, Don
Bliss, Former Fire Chief Steve Buco, and Frank
Murray who decided a luncheon at the Boys
& Girls Club on St. Patricks Day would t the
bill. They also created the Chief John P. Ganley
Community Service Award in honor of Ganleys
dedication to serving the community as a police
ofcer, police chief and town manager.
And despite skepticism that such an event
wouldnt be successful, 25 years later the award
continues to be presented. The inaugural Ganley
luncheon was totally sold out, said George
Khoury. Every year the tradition continues.
Presented by the Ganley family, the award is given
to a community-minded individual, recognizing
leadership, dedication, and concern for the
greater Salem community.
Salem Co-operative Bank President Ann Lally
was chosen as this years Ganley Community
Service Award recipient.
The work you do here is incredibly important
to all of us, said Governor Maggie Hassan on
Monday during the luncheon. You really are
carrying out your work and your life just the way
Chief Ganley did.
During his introduction of Lally at the luncheon,
the chiefs son William Ganley said: She is an
intelligent woman who has worked her way to
the top in one of the most successful nancial
institutions in the state. Anns accounting,
banking and business skills have guided many
non-prot groups struggling to make ends meet
while fullling their missions.
Ganley spoke about some of Lallys community
service efforts: past chief volunteer ofcer
and treasurer of the Salem Boys & Girls Club,
the clubs auction chair and capital campaign
co-chair, golf tournament committee member,
Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce Hidden
Jewel award creation committee member,
chamber treasurer, trustee for Dollars
for Scholars, New Hampshire
Charitable Foundation regional
board member, and a driving
force in establishing the
Salem Community
Benet, Salem Co-
operative Banks
charitable arm.
I can personally
attest that she knows
how to get things
done, Ganley said.
Three different
people separately
nominated Lally,
Ganley said, reading
part of her nomination
from George Khoury.
I can think of no one
that ts the high standards
required of that honor than
Ann, he said. Ann has opened
up her heart and
rolled up her sleeves
countless times on
behalf of serving
area youngsters. She
has shown a lifelong
commitment to the
children of greater
Salem.
Lally accepted
the award, thanking
her family and
co-workers for
support. I have
tried my whole life
to extend a helping
hand or a word of
encouragement or
advice when asked,
she said. This
award is truly one
that I will treasure.
Just as Chief Ganley knew the importance of the
Boys & Girls Club, Lally volunteers much time to
support it. My motto has always been Its for the
children, she said.
Lallys dedication to the club was demonstrated
after she accepted the award. Emcee Michael
Collins said Lally had obtained front row
Green Monster seats to the Red Sox
home opener, but couldnt
attend since the game
was during the annual
auction setup night.
Lally decided the
tickets should
be used as a
fundraiser for the
club and they
were auctioned
off for $1,000
after lunch.
The event
marked 26
years since Chief
Ganley was laid to
rest, Khoury said.

Hard Fought Battle
Selectmen Argue Over Chairmanship Seat
Hickey a Finalist for Dracut Town Manager
by S. Aaron Shamshoyan
Stability in the town managers ofce has been sought by
selectmen for years as the position has a high turnover rate, and
the board could soon be searching again.
Salem Town Manager Keith Hickey interviewed with Dracut,
Mass., Selectmen Tuesday as one of three nalists for the town
managers position.
During the interview, Hickey said the tenure of the previous
manager and respect shown by the board and staff were attractive
reasons to lead Dracut.
I left the communities that I worked in better condition than I
found them, Hickey said.
A question about challenges was answered with examples of
his work in Salem, including contract negotiations and stafng
reductions.
When rst hired in Salem, Hickey said he was confronted with
the need to renegotiate ve town union contracts, which had
been out of agreement for a number of years. We were able to
negotiate all ve contracts within the rst scal year, he said.
Stafng reductions were also necessary in Salem, Hickey said,
adding it was something a good manager takes personally.
by S. Aaron Shamshoyan
At the rst selectmans meeting since the election, a question
about fairness was raised, causing a debate.
On Monday, Selectman Stephen Campbell motioned to elect
Selectman Patrick Hargreaves as chair, current Chairman Everett
McBride as vice chair, and himself as secretary.
Selectman James Keller objected to the proposal saying he
wanted a chance to lead the board citing his campaign platform
and leadership experience.
I ran on a platform of a new approach, Keller said. Theres no
desire to see the new approach, he said about the proposal.
Hargreaves served the board as chairman in 2012, and Keller felt
there should be a rotation of leadership.
Repetitive authority or power leads to outcomes that arent
necessarily desirable, Keller said. Id like a shot.
Keller said Hargreaves left him a voicemail Monday morning
regarding the election of ofcers scheduled for the meeting. The
rst part of the statement was that Pat didnt believe that I had
the interests of Steve Campbell at heart; that was the basis of the
voicemail, Keller said. I didnt believe that that was what the
chairmanship job was about.
Selectman Michael Lyons said his concerns were with the
stability in the town managers ofce. Mr. Hickey does a good
job, he said.
Lyons said Hargreaves was effective in being sure a single
selectman did not monopolize the town manager. I thought
you did an excellent job, Lyons told Hargreaves, but said those
policies were no longer being followed.
Lyons noted Hickey was interviewing for a position the following
day as Dracuts town manager.
Hargreaves responded saying he never received a phone
call from Keller seeking his support for chairmanship over the
weekend. He also added that multiple calls to Lyons had not been
returned.
The board approved Campbells motion with Lyons opposed and
Keller abstaining.

Doug and Dan, and his family during this difcult time.

Blue Devils Percussion Ensemble Celebrates at NESBA
by Bob Gibbs
The Salem High School Music Department and the SHS Parents
Music Club sponsored the New England Scholastic Associations
Winter Percussion and Winter Guard Show at Salem High on
Saturday, March 15.
This competition included schools from all over southern New
Hampshire and eastern Massachusetts. Many of the percussion
groups incorporated dance and marching routines while playing
their music using mostly drums, cymbals, and xylophones. Intricate
props and makeup enhanced the feeling of the show each group
performed.
The winter guard competition also featured numerous groups from
New England. The color guard groups performed intricate dance
performances to music. The groups used ags, ries and other props
in highly coordinated routines that took months of very hard work to
perfect.
Blue Devils Winter Percussion placed second in their division
with their performance, Celebration. Ensemble staff and students
were excited that their scores reected a great improvement in their
performance from the previous competition just two weeks ago.
Salem Winter Percussion performs in a series of NESBA competitions
to qualify for the championships on Sunday, March 30 at North
Andover High School. Saturdays performance was their second
competition of the NESBA series. On March 1, Salem Percussion
placed third in a eld of 13 at a regional World Guard International
competition. In April, the ensemble will travel to Ohio for the WGI

Celebrates Celtic Style

The Singing State Trooper, Sgt. Daniel M Clark,
started the night off with the Irish National
Anthem in Gaelic and a rousing rendition of the
Star Spangled Banner. All through dinner he
went from table to table singing to the guests. The
entertainment came from the OShea Chaplin
Academy of Irish Dance. They did some Celtic
dances and drew loud applause from the people.
One of the live auction items was a round of
golf at the Renaissance Golf Course with Sheriff
Mike Downing who will surely need plenty of
golf balls. The guests were served a tasty meal
of corned beef and cabbage with all the xings.
Michael Downing, formerly a Salem police
ofcer, state representative and senator, is now the
Rockingham County High Sheriff.

Message from the Superintendent
Salem Pride Shows Concern for All
by Michael W. Delahanty, Ed.D.,
Superintendent, SAU 57
The word pride conveys a great many
meanings. Paul Sands of Baylor University
writes that pride is a vice that indicates strong
feelings for oneself. For others, pride is a virtue
that connotes self-respect and self-condence.
Philosophers would say that one can feel proud
without being proud. In other words, you can
feel good about an accomplishment but not
be consumed by self-importance. A parent
feeling proud of a childs accomplishment is
understandable. Feeling pride as a sense of
superiority is not okay. According to Sands, pride
can be a key component of emotional maturity.
He weighs the wide spectrum of pride. In his
article, he discusses the interdependence and
mutual concerns of successful communities.
Salem demonstrated its interdependencies on
March 11. A signicantly strong cross-section
of our community came together and expressed
concern for mutual benet.
The International Federation of Red Cross
published a study outlining characteristics of
strong communities. One of the identied
characteristics is a capacity to identify problems,
establish priorities, and act. The success of the
school districts recent bond vote exemplies this
characteristic. The Salem School Board realized
that the districts facilities required attention
after more than 50 years of accommodating
the communitys schoolchildren and public
space needs. The schools were constructed
long before current program requirements were
considerations. The board commissioned a
facilities master plan and set to work renovating
the schools. Only through a community of
individuals coming together around a common
purpose that weve been able to address the needs
identied within that master plan.
The most recent vote required a coalition of
support that involved parents and grandparents;
the local business community, including the
Chamber of Commerce; senior citizens and
high school students; local media ofcials, and
local government ofcials; as well as grass roots
organizers who acted tirelessly in support of the
project. This community wide effort, around a
theme of Salem Pride, acted interdependently, and
made something good happen for our town. Its
quite all right to feel a sense of gratication and
satisfaction, even joy, at the idea of this successful
effort on behalf of the entire community. All of
these words are synonymous with pride.
The word community is dened as giving
among each other. The best communities are not
centered around individuals or individual efforts
but on its citizens and group efforts. In the best
communities, skills and resources are shared for
common purposes. Its not a few people giving
a great deal but a great deal of people giving
something. Our community has taken a big step
forward around a common purpose and around
a theme of Salem Pride. Now the school district
has a responsibility to ensure that we fulll our
obligation to meet the trust extended to us. We
will meet that expectation. The community
has a responsibility to continue a sense of
interdependence. The people of this town are its
greatest asset, and its greatest asset will continue
to make all the difference.

Expressing Appreciation
to Voters for District Support
It is with a sense of awe and humble appreciation that
the Salem School District, its staf and students extend
their appreciation to the citizens of Salem for their
overwhelming support of the district on Tuesday. Not
only did the proposed renovation to Salem High School
pass with astounding support, the districts budget and
its collective bargaining agreements were shown strong
support as well. It is incumbent now on the district and
its ofcials to justify the confdence citizens have placed
in them by implementing the plans as approved. Te
district is pledged to meet the challenge.
With regard to the vote to approve the proposed
renovations to Salem High School, it would be
impossible to individually name or thank all those who
were responsible for making this happen, however some
special recognitions must be acknowledged:
To members of the SHS Renovation Committee,
including Michael Collins, Susan Desmet, Ed
Lawlor, John Sytek, Chris Dodge, Tracy Collyer,
Peter Morgan, and advisors Frank Monteiro, Gino
Baroni, and Lance Whitehead who assisted in the
formation and development of the renovation
proposal.
Architect Lance Whitehead from the frm of
Lavallee Brensinger for his incorporation of
facility needs into conceptual plans as well as his
presentations at various meetings to explain how
the plans fulflled identifed needs of the facility.
Gino Baroni and others at Trident Project
Advantage Group who, as the districts owners
project manager, validated the work of the
architect and assisted in development of the
project scope and budget.
Salem High School CTE Director Chris Dodge,
whose vision and preparation for the future
renovation of the CTE Center at Salem High
positioned the district to be ready when the state
advanced its schedule of CTE fnancial assistance,
so that Salem could be poised to receive nearly $11
million in state aid for the project.
Salem High School Principal Tracy Collyer and
members of her staf who spent countless hours
detailing the programming needs for a renovated
high school and conducted countless tours of the
facility for the general public.
Te Salem Budget Committee for their support of
the bond initiative.
In addition, the district is especially indebted to:
Superintendent Michael Delahanty, who
orchestrated all phases of the development of the
renovation plans, working with the renovation
committee, state legislative leaders, project
stakeholders and community and parent groups to
build support for the project, coordinating public
presentations and who demonstrated leadership
that the project will be carried out in a competent,
efcient and economical fashion. With the help of
district fnancial staf, he prepared and presented
fnancial options and demonstrated the fnancial
soundness and benefts of the project.
Strengthen our schools and its leaders Sherry
Kilgus-Kramer, Melissa Sorcinelli, Kristine
Nippert, Amy Healey, and others who led an
amazing coordination of parent and community
support without which, the project simply would
not have received the endorsement of district
voters.
With the passage of the SHS Renovation article,
work now begins in earnest to turn the concept
plans into a reality. Te complex task of creating
the necessary construction detail drawings for the
substantial project will begin right away, but, as noted
in all public presentations, visible work on the site
itself is likely at least 12 months away. Te district is
committed to providing ongoing updates of progress as
we move into the construction phase. Information will
continue to be available on the district website (www.
sau57.org).
Bernard Campbell, Chairman, Salem School Board
Community Taking

March 11, 2014 is a day that will shine in Salems
history. Tank you to all Salem voters who supported
School Article 2 and all school warrant articles, on
the March 11 school ballot. Because of you, this
community is taking a giant step forward. We will now
have a safe, adequate high school facility that will fulfll
the needs of this community, and enable us to compete
with all of the communities around us. Salem has
something signifcant to celebrate.
I want to thank the following for their contributions
to the success of Salem High School renovations:
Te SOS Board and their families, our dedicated
PTA organizations, all the people who volunteered
with SOS or helped spread the word, everyone who
contributed fnancially to this campaign, the Salem
Basketball Organization, the Boys & Girls Club, the
Icenter, the Band Boosters and Athletic Boosters, all of
our preschool and other school partners in Salem who
communicated to their parent communities, everyone
who placed a sign in their snow banks, everyone who
wrote a letter to the editor, our vendor partners, the
Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce for endorsing
the project, the retail businesses who displayed our
information, and the Salem School District.
I am so grateful to this community for the incredible,
collaborative efort to improve our schools in Salem.
Together, we made a diference on March 11, 2014.
We created a legacy that will live on for years to come.
Weve paid it forward. Tank you, thank you, thank
you! Lets celebrate Salem Pride!
Sherry Kilgus-Kramer, Salem
Convert Rockingham Park
to Senior Housing
Ive heard that the conservation commission is
postponing a senior housing development on wetlands.
I agree with the decision. Ive also been informed
that NH government vetoed gambling. If this is all
true then we should leave the pristine wetlands alone
and build senior housing in Rockingham Park. If for
commercial development, the best we can do is put
in an auto dealership in the old Coke building, then
perhaps Salem is saturated with commercial/retail
businesses, and the park is best suited for residential
development. Senior development is preferred because
it does not require building additional schools.
Richard Carlin, Salem
A Tan Isnt Worth Dying for
While cancer rates overall are decreasing, the
deadliest form of skin cancer, melanoma, is rising at an
alarming rate. Today, New Hampshires melanoma rate
is among the highest in the country. Te disease is now
the second most common cancer in girls and women
ages 15-29.
Some of this rise is due to an increased use of UV
tanning beds, especially in young women. Te pressures
to tan and get that beachy glow start early long before
these kids realize that by using a tanning bed before
the age of 35 theyre increasing their risk of developing
melanoma by 59 percent.
A tan isnt worth dying for, but try telling that to
your teenage daughter. If legislation introduced in
Concord goes through, you wouldnt have to be the one
to tell your daughter she cant tan because it would put
her life at risk; the law would.
Tis law would prohibit kids from using tanning
beds, which are known carcinogens, just like cigarettes.
I urge our elected ofcials to vote to support the
House Executive Department and Administration
Committees recommendation that this bill pass and
protect our kids from the potentially deadly damage
caused by UV rays in tanning beds.
Nanci Carney, Salem
Serving Towns Best Interests
Tank you for coming out to vote, awarding me a
seat on the Planning Board.
I am very excited about working with our neighbors
and businesses on making us proud of the way we want
our town to be preserved as well as giving some facelifts
to the areas in need.

Salems Excellent Electoral Choices
Congratulations are due to the voters of Salem, who
last Tuesday covered themselves in glory by the choices
they made. In a clean sweep of virtually every issue up
for grabs in early 2014, we collectively blazed a path of
fscal responsibility as well as civic consciousness re: the
plethora of local issues and questions we had to decide.
Te most talked-and-written-about electoral question
(Article 2), encompassing the $75 million complete
renovation of the nearly half-century-old Salem High
School passed with a resounding 72 percent vote. Tis
demonstrated that both sides of the aisle understood
the logistic importance of the aging schools restoration
(instead of utilizing the band-aid approach), as well
as the positive fnancial end of the matter (say hello to
higher residential property values!) Te many article
and letter writers who supported this bond measure
over the past few months, led by the Strengthen Our
Schools organization headed by Sherry Kilgus-Kramer,
all deserve a debt of gratitude by working to inform
our neighbors of the economic and educational
ramifcations of not passing this article. All deserve a
round of applause.
Many town ofcials wound up running unopposed
and won well-deserved fait accompli victories, but a
special mention and hearty congratulations are due to
new Planning Board member Jane Lang, who along
with Ron Belanger captured one of the two contested
seats. Tis was a wonderful, tough victory by a very
hard-working and savvy Salemite who has been active
in local afairs, including running the Salem Farmers
Market, for over a decade. Her passion and desire to
better the lives of our residents has been in evidence
over the seven years Ive known her, and we should
consider ourselves fortunate to have her on the town
team.
All budgets and raises for Salem employees were
approved, most of these being non-controversial
decisions as we were talking 1-2 percent salary increases,
with thankfully few Scrooges in evidence. And by
passing the anti-Citizens United resolution (Article
19) by an overwhelming 3513-1500 tally, voters
demonstrated their understanding of the grievous harm
done to every one of us who take the time to learn
the issues and regularly vote on them in our local and
national elections.
Te U.S. Supreme Court made a huge (and obviously
ideologically-driven) mistake in 2010 when they
removed limits from what corporations and unions
can contribute to political candidates. Tis ridiculous
ruling by its very nature has weakened the peoples
power to elect men and women who will serve our
interests, and instead gives an overwhelming advantage
to politicians favored by multi-billionaires like the
Koch brothers as well as absolute clowns like Donald
Trump, who can throw in millions of dollars from their
own cofers to sway elections in whatever way they
choose. Tese outsized contributions give a huge upper
hand in fnancing negative advertising, infomercials
and robocalls to everyone from Tea Party candidates to
economic hawks, all of whose legislative voting choices
after election give favored treatment to these members
of the 2 percent Club who back them.
Whether one is a Democrat, Republican or centrist
leaner, there is no place in our political system for
unregulated political contributions to go to candidates
favored by the Midases of America, many of whom have
little or no empathy for the 98 percent remainder, the
Average Americans. Many other similar election results
are being seen across the United States in response
to the Citizens United imbroglio, and by adding
our numbers to the cause we can
hope that Congress will soon take
charge on this matter and repeal
the Supreme Courts misguided
genufection to corporate wealth.
Many thanks are due to Scott
Abercrombie, who worked long and
hard to get Article 19 on the ballot,
and the voting results speak for
themselves.
Great job, Salem voters!

Donna Morris Expands Duties
as Chamber President
submitted by the
Greater Salem Chamber
of Commerce
The Greater
Salem Chamber of
Commerce announces
the appointment of
Donna H. Morris as
president. The chamber
represents the concerns
of businesses on town,
county, state, national
and international
legislation, and political
affairs as it relates to
the communities of
Salem, Windham,
Pelham, Hampstead,
and Atkinson, New
Hampshire. This is
accomplished while
fostering an environment
of peer support for
networking, advertising
and education.
Donna has been
serving as the chambers
executive director since
2005 and has overseen major growth in both membership and community recognition. She
has become a strong voice on issues that affect economic development and civic interests in
the commercial, retail, industrial, and nancial areas within the communities.
Although the change of title from executive director to president holds largely the same
responsibilities, said Dean Kacos, Chairman of the Board for the GSCC, this new direction
is in parallel with the progress and growth that the organization has seen throughout
Donnas tenure.
The chamber president will oversee the full operations of the organization while
representing the association publicly in concert with key individuals, external organizations
and community representatives.
There has always been that crucial balance between business and community needs
and I am looking forward to working with our community leaders to ensure that the needs
of one can complement the needs of all, said Donna Morris. I have been working with
our business leaders for the past eight years and am excited for the future growth and
development of our already strong organization.

But Dracut selectmen said the town is much
different than Salem noting Dracut has no major
highways close by and a limited commercial base.
Hickey said the town manager needs to be the
face of the community, and he would work with
different organizations, such as the Chamber of
Commerce and rotary clubs to hear concerns of
locals and seek economic development.
He also said the towns website needed
improvements. Your website is drastically
outdated and underutilized, he told the board.
One of Hickeys rst accomplishments in Salem
was updating the towns website and seeking to
keep information current.
He said an updated site would help attract
potential businesses and residents.
Salem Selectman Michael Lyons said the need
for a new town manager would cost the town
nancially and again lead the board on another
search.
While there would be no nancial obligation to
Hickey, funds would be needed to cover the cost
of seeking a new manager.
Lyons believes one element to Hickey seeking
a new employer was excessive oversight by
selectmen. I think the managers hired to do a
job and that is to run the town, he said. We
ought to let him run the town.
Hickey signed a three-year contract with
Salem in 2010, and his rst day was the 2011
Deliberative Session. An additional year was
added to his contract in 2012, and in 2013 he
signed a four-year deal.
Hickey is the only candidate for the position
currently employed in New Hampshire. The two
other nalists are North Reading, Mass., Town
Administrator Greg Balukonis and Gloucester,
Mass., Chief Administrative Ofcer James Duggan.
Hickey previously served as town manager in
Merrimac and Bedford.

A Musical Tribute Benets Field of Dreams
and Boys & Girls Club
Guests ponder their raf e choices at the fundraiser.
by Bob Gibbs
A tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughn held at the Salem Boys & Girls Club on
March 8 benetted the club and the Field of Dreams.
Organizers were very pleased with the turnout that came to hear the
George Williams Bands tribute to the late blues legend. Opening acts were
a solo acoustic performance by Mike Williams followed by an electric set by
the Mike Williams trio.
The benet was held in memory of 14-year-old Chris Macy, who died
tragically August 14, 2007.
Besides the music, dance, and great food there were rafes and a
silent auction. More than $9,000 was raised for the two charitable
organizations. Included in the auctioned was a Bud Light recliner that
went for $220. A set of drumheads and drumsticks used by Godsmack
drummer Shannon Larkin and autographed by the members of
Godsmack raised $200.
Items donated to the auction came from many local businesses. Just a
few of these donors included Aleksa Auto, TSR Hockey, Steves Security and
Stereo, Music Workshop, and Granite State Tattoo.
Organizer Denise Dolloff, director of development for the Boys & Girls
Club of Greater Salem, thanks all the sponsors, donors and guests for the
wonderful generosity shown to benet two great causes.
Special thanks to platinum donor Bellmores Transportation of Derry, along
with gold sponsors Trattoria Amal of Salem and Body Rags of Pelham.
Mike Williams begins the evening with an acoustic set. Sonny Tylus and Candice Dollof keep the guests happy.

NH House Blocks
Gaming for State
by S. Aaron Shamshoyan
House lawmakers voted last week to kill HB 1633, a proposal
to provide one expanded gaming license in the state of New
Hampshire.
The introduction to the bill states: Allows for the selection and
operation of one casino in southeastern New Hampshire, including
the operation of video slot machines and table games.
The bill would also have established a gaming commission to
oversee gambling, lottery, racing and charitable gaming.
Lawmakers voted the bill, 173 to 144, inexpedient to legislate,
essentially killing the bill. A yea vote opposes the proposal.
While the proposal lost by 29 votes, only 15 representatives would
need to reconsider their vote to send it along to the senate.
Five of Salems eight representatives voted against the motion,
seeking to save the bill. The following denotes how out state
representatives voted.
Rep. Ronald Belanger (R-Salem) Nay

EVRApps:
Go Where Youve Never Gone Before
by Marc Ayotte
In an age where information at your ngertips
is not only a convenience but an increasing
necessity, Apps are rapidly becoming the
cornerstones for personal entertainment as well as
business activity. In a mobile phone-dominated
society, upwards of 70 percent of time spent on
the electronic device that has become an implant
to the palm of most human hands, is spent on
Apps! Mobile devices is where everything is
going, explained Tony Scamurra, co-founder and
President of EVRApps, Inc. located in Salem.
Accordingly, Scamurra, who along with co-
founder and CEO Claudia Skilton, has invoked
their entrepreneurial spirit upon their new
business venture as App developers. Scamurra
has years of experience in designing and
developing hardware and software for mobile
devices, having worked at Apples home ofce in
Cupertino, Calif., as an engineer in addition to
owning and operating his own company, Desktop
Paging Software. Meanwhile, Skilton as a vice
president of customer service and support brings
extensive experience in the eld of technical
engineering from her 20 years with Digital.
As EVRApps points out, customers use mobile
Apps six times more frequently than websites.
App development is a bit pricey now, similar to
websites when they came out, admits Scamurra.
He continued by saying that App companies are
not price effective now thats where we come
in. The energetic and perceptive Scamurra
differentiates EVRApps from his competitors,
saying; weve priced it to make it attractive to
everyone.
As developers of your prospective app, be it
for personal or business use, EVRApps stands
behind their involvement from both a price and
effectiveness standpoint. We invest with you,
we believe in our product and believe your team
and customers are going to use it, offered Skilton,
adding; we offer the ability for you to have an
App that is affordable.
While also developing Apps for personal
enjoyment, Skilton addressed the business side of
the ledger, saying; having the app is only going
to increase your presence (in the marketplace).
Everything is geared towards making it easier
for the customer. She believes the mindset
of the consumer is such that they ask how
can I make my life easier with an app? And
EVRApps contribution to that answer is to utilize
its uniqueness, creativity and time involved in
working with its customers to develop an app that
will serve all their needs. In short, EVRApps is a
developer that will optimize the use of your Apps
potential.
This generation doesnt want to go to the store
and walk around, assesses Scamurra. Following
up on that, he adds that people want to make a
purchase from their phone, to which he offered;
but you need the app to do so. A common
example is found in the pizza industry. Whereas
Pizza Hut, Dominos, et al, have apps to facilitate
mobile orders, smaller companies often do not
have that luxury.
That is where EVRApps can assist in leveling
the playing eld via their pricing and experience.
We have a niche in the small- to medium-size
businesses that need to get into the market place,
offered Scamurra. With the smaller companies
adding the option of an App to help facilitate
orders on the go, Skilton added the app will
allow businesses to feel that the consumer will
now be able to take our business everywhere
they go.

You might be surprised to talk to our patients
or their parents. The groans associated with
visiting the dentist have been replaced by
excited shouts of I have no cavities! or This
was a lot of fun! A large part of pediatric
dentistry is encouraging patients and parents
alike that visits to the dentist are fun, and proper
home care helps limit those visits to once every
6 months. Dr. Collins and her team of skilled,
caring dental professionals do this every day.
Children who have early positive dental
experiences are more likely to maintain regular
dental visits and excellent at-home dental care
as adults, explains Dr. Collins. We provide
a comfortable setting and establish condence
so that each of our patients can achieve and
maintain optimal dental health. From the
moment children walk into the ofce, we want
to build a relationship
with the patient,
establish trust, and set
the stage for excellent
oral care now and in
the future.
Dr. Collins is proud
to be listed among
the Top Pediatric
Dentists in the state
for the past several
years. But despite
her achievements, Dr.
Collins and her staff
continue to improve
their clinical and
patient care skills by
attending continuing
education courses in
their respective elds.
Dr. Collins constantly
strives to stay abreast
of the ever-changing
eld of dentistry and
improvements in
dental technology.
She participates in
various educational
activities so she
can provide quality
services to her
patients, ranging from
about 1 year of age
through college age.
Dr. Collins is
excited to announce
the addition of two
more pediatric dentists
to the team. Both
doctors will be starting
in July after completion of their Pediatric
Residency Programs. The addition of these
dentists will allow us to continue treating our
many existing patients as well as provide dental
care to many others seeking treatment.
Dr. Collins remarks, We encourage parents
to bring their children in when the rst tooth
emerges. We make that rst dental visit short,
enjoyable and very comfortable. We encourage
parents to establish a dental home where we
can monitor each childs dental condition
because poor dental hygiene may affect sleep,
social relationships, and overall health.

on a lifelong journey of good dental habits.

Methuen Village - More Than Your Average Assisted Living Community
by Andrew P. Belliveau
When Methuen Village rst opened its doors in 2009, it
was immediately embraced by the greater Methuen, Mass.,
community for its innate ability to bring families peace of
mind.
We are a privately owned community and take great pride
in that. We have developed our own culture and atmosphere.
Families are very engaged in this open and vibrant community,
said Gregory Batchelder, who is the Executive Director of the
campus. The community is currently home to 95 residents, in
both its traditional assisted living community, and its smaller
Compass Memory Support Neighborhood, a specialized,
secure community for those with memory loss or Alzheimers
disease.
Methuen Villages traditional assisted living community
is appropriate for those who may need help with everyday
living situations, such as housekeeping, meals, dressing, and
medication reminders and monitoring. Residents have their
own apartments that they furnish and decorate however they
choose.
Being in a social community setting generally has a huge
positive impact for seniors, Batchelder said. Our Enriched
LIFE program is phenomenal. We have meaningful, often
researched-based programming, like arts, music, lecture series
and exercise that are not just average activities. We do things
that we would enjoy ourselves.
All residents at Methuen Village are offered menu options
from the communitys award-winning Brain Healthy Cooking
Program, a researched-based nutrition program featuring foods
and spices that have been proven to promote brain health for
people of all ages.
Residents and families tell us that access to transportation is
one of the amenities they like best about our community, says
Batchelder. Methuen Villages van will regularly take residents
out on sightseeing tours, to cultural events, and out for dining
or shopping excursions. Every Thursday they also take any
residents who sign up in advance to doctor appointments that
are within a ten-mile radius.
Currently, 18 of the 95 residents at Methuen Village live
in the Compass Memory Support Neighborhood. Afliated
with the Boston University School of Medicine Alzheimers
Disease Center, the researched-based and highly specialized
program focuses solely on those with memory impairments.
The programs in combination actually treat the symptoms of
Alzheimers, enhancing the lives of those living with memory
loss, said Batchelder.
David Lane, whose father (also David Lane) is a resident
of the Compass Memory Support Neighborhood is extremely
happy with the decision to bring his father to Methuen Village.
Hes stimulated all day long, Lane said. The residents have
their own little country kitchen, as well as word puzzles and
games in the living room. They are a big family. The best part
is the relief of stress on my sister and I. We no longer have
to deal with a medical alert bracelet that kept going off. Hes
been here for two and a half years, and really enjoys it. He
jokes and laughs all the time.
According to Lane, the staff is the heart and soul of the
campus. The staff is truly invested in what they do, and it
shows in the care that they give. Theyll even come in on their
days off to check on the residents.
For more information about Methuen Villages services,
please contact Gregory Batchelder at (978) 685-2220.

Newly Expanded Gym & Private Rooms
Fairview Healthcare:
Becoming Southern New Hampshires Newest
All-inclusive Senior Care Campus
by Andrew P. Belliveau
To the seasoned residents of Hudson, the sight
of Fairview Healthcare is a familiar one. Located
on 203 Lowell Road, the campus sits adjacent to
Haffners Service Station and has been there since
it rst opened its doors as a long-term care nursing
home in 1951. Since then, Fairview Healthcare
expanded to include Laurel Place Assisted Living
in 1996, and the addition of skilled rehabilitation
services for those needing physical therapy,
occupational therapy, speech therapy or other care
following a surgery or hospital stay. Now, under the
continued leadership of Administrator Rich Leboeuf,
Fairview is adding more services to complete the
level of care that will be available on the campus.
Hudson residents have no doubt noticed the
construction alongside Fairview since they broke
ground last June. Upon completion in mid-May,
Fairview Healthcare will have expanded their
skilled rehabilitation program with a 3,000-square-
foot state-of-the-art gym as well as an additional
13 private suites for those who are admitted for
rehabilitation services. In addition, a specialized
memory care assisted living program, The Inn
at Fairview, will offer specialized assisted living
services to those residents who have Alzheimers or
other forms of memory impairment. The 45 fully
appointed suites will have all the comforts of home
in addition to specialized programming and trained
staff. The continuity of care that will be provided at
Fairview Healthcare is going to set us apart from the
rest, stated Rosie Sampson, Director of Community
Relations. We want families to have peace of mind
knowing that their loved one is safe and being taken
care of at one of the best and most comprehensive
healthcare communities around, no matter the level
of need they may have.
Fairview Healthcare has long been known for
the longevity of its wonderful, caring staff. The
longevity of staff members is especially important for
residents experiencing memory loss, and Fairview
naturally attends to this need. Our goal is to create
an extended family for our residents, Executive
Director Lauriann Deely stated. We also want to
be a resource to the community and will be offering
informative, fun and educational programs on a
monthly basis. As Rich Leboeuf stated at the ground
breaking last June For more than 60 years, Fairview
has remained a part of the communityand as we
grow, we remain committed to our founding values.
For information about Fairview Healthcare and
the soon to be completed state-of-the-art additions,
call 603-816-0070 or email Rosie Sampson,
Director of Community Relations at rsampson@
fairviewhealthcare.com.
A preliminary rendering shows the entrance to Te Inn at Fairview. Te Inn is one of two new additions to Fairview
Healthcares campus in Hudson, with construction coming to a close mid-May.
My name is Christine (Vitale) Morrissey. I am
the proud owner of Freds Barber Shop at 8 Stiles
Rd., Salem, formerly located on Broadway, in
Derry, for 26 years. Fred Graham was the original
owner.
I started working for Fred in 1988. That was
one of my rst jobs after Barber School. We hit it
off right away and he was a good, fair boss. He
taught me how to be a good barber, and how to
run a good business.
Fred and his family were originally from
Caribou, Maine. He was a barber for most of his
life, had a great work ethic, and was very proud
and dedicated to his business. You could say he
was Old School all the way. He grew up on
a farm where the days were long, and work was
hard. He was a religious man, and very proud of
his country. They say you should never discuss
religion or politics in the barber chair, but if the
subject came up, he did it anyway.
Fred and his family had decided when the day
came for him to spend his next life with the good
Lord above, that I could take over the shop. I was
so grateful and very honored.
The next year was up, the lease expired, and the
building was to be renovated. Re-leasing was not
an option. I found a great spot to re-open Freds
Barber Shop in my hometown of Salem. The
shop is off Exit 2 on Route 93. This makes it very
convenient for the many original customers from
Derry to nd us. New customers ask, who is
Fred, where is Fred? Now you know why I kept
the name in honor of the man who had a funny
saying for almost any situation. He knew how
to run a barber shop. He was fair, outspoken,
had great character, and I really enjoyed working
with him and for him. He is not here physically,
but spiritually, yes. So, after nine years of having
a successful business in Salem, all I can say is,
Thank you, Fred, you taught me well.

Itemized Deductions
W.F.Boutin EA - Total Tax Solutions LLC
Taxpayers itemize their deductions in the hope of exceeding the
standard deduction allowed by the tax code for their particular ling
status. For every dollar that exceeds the standard deduction, the
savings realized is proportionate to the tax bracket they are in for their
ling status. Categories found on the SCH A, itemized deductions
include: Medical Expenses that exceed 7.5% of the AGI for taxpayers
65 or older, all others it is 10% of the AGI; certain Taxes paid, such as
state or local income taxes, foreign income taxes, general sales tax
(only if not claiming state and local taxes); real estate tax and personal
property tax which must be based upon the value of property and
charged on a yearly basis; qualied home mortgage Interest including
certain points paid, investment interest (limited to investment income)
and qualied mortgage insurance premiums; Charitable Contributions
by cash or check and contributions other than cash or check.
(NOTE: The deduction of cash must have a bank record or written
communication from the charity. Contributions of property such as
clothing and household items must be in good used condition or
better.);
Non-Business Casualty and Theft Losses (subject to a $100 deduct-
ible and 10% of the AGI); various Miscellaneous Deductions which fall
into two categories: those that are subject to 2% of the AGI before the
rst dollar is realized such as employee/employment business
expenses, tax preparation fees, investment expenses, safe deposit boxes
etc., and deductions not subject to the 2% cap such as gambling losses
(up to the amount of winnings), impairment related work expenses and
unrecovered investments in an annuity etc. There are many more
allowed deductions that fall into this miscellaneous category.
Most individuals do not succeed in itemizing deductions unless they
have the cost of home mortgage interest and real estate taxes.
Unless a taxpayer does not have medical insurance, or has a medical
catastrophe, most out of pocket expenses for medical do not exceed
the 10% of AGI. (Pre-tax health insurance purchased through your
employer is not deductible since no taxes were paid on these premi-
ums.)
The most understated deduction for taxpayers who do itemize is for
the donation of personal property such as clothing and home furnish-
ings. Most taxpayers ll up trash bags of clothing and drop them off at
the nearest collection box when they go food shopping or visit their
town recycle center. We recommend that you prepare a detailed
description of the goods being donated. Then, drop these bags off at
the local thrift store; there you can receive a signed receipt for the
donation. When you return home, you can calculate the value of what
was donated. Many of these organizations have a donation valuation
guide attached to your signed receipt, listing the high and low end
value that they receive for this merchandise. (We have links at our
website that list various donation value guides)
Example: Childrens jeans have a value of $4.20 to $14.40 each. If
you included 3 pairs of jeans in your donation, which were in very
good condition, the deduction value is $27.90, $9.30 a pair which is
the average of the high to low end for that item.
We provide each of our clients who itemize a donation value guide
each tax season. A couple of bags donated throughout the year can
add up to $600 in additional deductions.

The Salem High
School girls basketball
squad entered into the
postseason seemingly
ready for anybody. The
Blue Devils, in their rst
year under the guidance
of Head Coach Michaela
Galvin, had played
brilliantly, winning their
nal ve regular season
games to earn the fth
seed in the NHIAA
Division I Championship
tournament.
On Wednesday, March
5, Salem hosted Dover
High School in the
opening round of the
playoffs. Earlier in the
regular season, the Blue
Devils had defeated Dover,
48-35, and hoped to repeat
that performance en route to the quarternals. But the 12th-seeded
Green Wave made it clear, from the opening whistle, that they
would not let Salem advance in the tournament without a ght.
Salem jumped out to a 6-0 lead to start the rst quarter that
whipped their home Davis Gymnasium fans into a frenzy. That lead
was lost minutes later, as Dover tied the game at six points apiece.
After Dover took their rst lead of the contest, Salem senior Alyssa
Kolbert knocked down a three-point shot to regain the lead for the
home squad. The rst quarter continued to be a shoot-out, with
both teams knocking down three-point baskets and exchanging the
lead. Dover led, 17-15, after the opening quarter.
Dover continued to pick apart the Blue Devils at the start of the
second quarter, but senior Emily Hickey stopped Salems temporary
slide with a drive to the basket. Salem could get little else going in
the quarter, and Dover extended their lead, 30-22, at the half.
We just couldnt get things to go our way like they normally do,
said Coach Galvin. We took some shots inside that didnt drop,
especially towards the end. I think it was the opposite for Dover,
and they shot very well. I think both teams worked hard.
The third and fourth quarters were full of squandered
opportunities for Salem. Dover, in contrast, became consistent as
the game progressed. The Green Wave was able to knock down
nearly every shot they took. Dovers advantage grew, 47-30, after
three quarters of play. Still, the Blue Devils fought with the threat of
elimination looming closer.
I was just saying to the girls that I hope they can take away
positives because since the beginning of the season to the last
game they had come so far. We were able to turn things around
that were negative and that we were struggling with, said Galvin.
We are completely different and just a more positive team. I
loved coaching them. Thats why its tough because I really enjoyed
working with these girls, and I thought we could go a little bit
further.
It was apparent as the seconds ticked off the clock that this
was going to be as far as the Blue Devils would go this
postseason. Dover built off their lead in the fourth quarter
while Salem clawed at their heels and hoped to nd the
rhythm they had possessed all season long.
In the contest, Hickey led Salem with 13 points.
Amanda Bickford and Brenna Blakslee scored 11 points
apiece. Sophomore Kelly Lamarre collected six points in
the game while classmate Alexandra Sirmaian recorded
four points. Despite these solid performances, Salem
was eliminated by Dover High School after a 65-49 rst-
round loss. Dover, having played their best game of the
year, was throttled by Nashua North High School in the
quarternal round, 76-37. Salem nished their season
with an overall record of 13-6.
After the disappointing nish to her inaugural season
as head c coach, Galvin reected on the four seniors who
helped her lead the Blue Devils through a strong season:
Amanda Bickford, Brenna Blakslee, Alyssa Kolbert and
Emily Hickey.
All four of them lead by example. They worked
their absolute hardest at practice. All four of them are
consummate student-athletes, said Galvin. Im really
going to miss them and Im sure their teammates will too.

The Woodbury School in Salem attracted hundreds of locals to
its annual Winter Carnival March 7. The fun-lled event brought in
families looking for an entertaining way to spend a cold Friday night.
The fundraiser, a tradition now for more than 10 years, is organized
by the PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association) and featured a
performance by the Woodbury School Jazz Ensemble, which included
some of the top musicians at the school. These talented young men
and woman, all of whom auditioned for a spot in the band, rehearsed
once a week for 90 minutes since the start of school to perfect their
dynamic performance. Among the elegant live music by the jazz
ensemble attendees could be seen enjoying delicious snow cones,
pizza, and candy. Throughout the evening kids found themselves
dancing and hula-hooping to the live DJ who was set up in the
gymnasium/dance oor. The Annual Winter Carnival was not only
a great way for the PTSA to raise money for school purchases such
as eld trip
assistance,
but an
enjoyable
community
event for
the whole
family.

Thumbs up/Thumbs
down. Beware of the electric
companies who want you
to change from your current
electric carrier. If you do, you
bill will go up double. Stay
with the regulated electric
companies that you already
have. The other electric
companies are not regulated,
and your bill will double.
Thumbs up to the Salem
High School Freshmen
basketball team and to their
coach. Obtain seed number
one in their tournament. Finally lost to Exeter
who went on to win the tournament.
Thumbs down to auto-dealers that advertise
Presidential Day on television and showed Mount
Rushmore Presidents as bobble heads. The auto-
deals blame bad weather for low sales at this time.
It could be that their poor taste in adverting. I
would not buy an auto from them.
Thumbs down to the person worried about
their tax dollars funding SHS Blue Devils
Marching Bands prestigious honor to perform in
the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC in
April 2015. Those kids, as always, will represent
their school, Town of Salem and State of NH
with the highest level of respect and pride. The
SHS Parents Music Club works hard all year long
with various fundraising methods to help fund
equipment, uniforms, food and travel costs for
these kids. Most of the trip costs are and will be
paid out of pocket by the students parents! Rather
than complain, maybe show some support and
encouragement for these talented and dedicated
kids ... you could also make a tax free charitable
contribution to the SHS Parents Music Club as it is
a 501c3 non-prot organization!
Thumbs down. A big thumbs down to you
people littering your beer cans, energy drink cans,
loser lottery tickets up and down Sand Hill Road
in Salem. The town did a beautiful job making
the street look nice and its back to trashville. Is it
really so difcult to put a bag in your car for your
trash and then dispose of it in a trash can when
you get to your destination? Have a little respect!
Thumbs down to the people of Salem who
voted for every article. Our tax
rate will go big time. Thank you.
Dont ever complain about the
federal government wanting to
raise our taxes.
Thumbs down to Marilinda
and Bianca Garcia. Between
them both they missed a total
of 79 votes. Wow, imagine
if Marilinda gets elected to
congress. How many no votes/
no excues would she have?
Looks like Bianca took a page
out of her sisters book.
Thumbs down to the Salem dump! Know this;
the Salem Dump is not for the convenience of the
citizens of Salem. It is solely for the convenience
of the workers, union inuence! Consider this:
closes at 2:45 p.m., closed on Sun. and Mon.
(when most people could use it), cannot dump
wood products (guess we can dump that on back
roads), only one lane to enter dump (even if you
are just dumping yard waste), must get in same
line as those dumping trash, as someone has to
check sticker, even if line stretches 1/2 mile down
road. Would not want anyone to dump leaves that
does not have sticker. Rude and condescending
employees! Whats not to like!
Wake up citizens, this is your
dump, demand a change to the
rules, we pay enough taxes to
warrant this.
Thumbs up/Thumbs down.
The voters of Hampstead,
Sanborn and Timberlane all shot
down their respective towns
school budget. They opted for
the default budget which was
lower than the operating budget.
How does the Salem school
board get away with having a
default budget higher than the
operating budget? Me thinks,
something smells shy here.
Thumbs down to the Garcias. Not only did
Marilinda and Bianca not follow the wishes of
the Salem residents who elected them to the NH
House, they did not have the guts to vote on the
Rockingham Racetrack casino gambling bill that
eventually failed. Marilinda did not vote and was
not excused and Bianca did not vote but had an
excused absence. And one of this duo wants to
take her lame game to Washington. Whats so
hard to understand? Salem selectmen support
having a casino here and so have more than 80
percent of voters. If another chance comes along,
they should get with the program and vote yes or
least stand up and explain their no votes.
Thumbs down. Big thumbs down to Scott
Brown. Hey Scott Brown, you were not a
bipartisan senator in Massachusetts; that is why
they got rid of you. Politicians work for the
people who elect them. You think you can move
here to New Hampshire and run. A tiger doesnt
change his stripes. Lets get ready for more of the
negative campaigning ads, which make me sick.
Scott Brown, youre a joke you should move to
Maine because New Hampshire does not want
you.
Thumbs down to the Board of Selectmen or
specically three members. I was hoping to see
a leadership change with the Chairmans position
but it didnt happen. Same old leadership,
same old ideas! It seems like it is the good old
boys network, Pat, Stephen and Everett. I was
extremely disappointed in Everett McBride who I
thought was about change. There is nothing bad
about Pat but I feel Jim Keller has more business
experience and has no allegiance to other
members. Jim has proven his leadership ability
while at the Planning Board and is above petty
politics. No wonder our town manager wants to
leave.

Slice of Salem Celebrates Love of Pizza
submitted by Serena Uliano
Valentines Day, this year, was not only about
celebrating love, but also celebrating the love for
pizza. The Fifth Annual Slice of Salem took place
on Friday, February 14. The freshmen class council
put a lot of effort into hosting the event. Council
members went around to Salem pizzerias asking them
if they would like to participate in the Slice of Salem.
Freshmen council members were grateful to seven
pizzerias who kindly donated pizzas: Sals, Bertuccis,
Papa Ginos, Route 97, NH Beach Pizza, Salem House
of Pizza, and Checkmate.
Slice of Salem occurred during the Salem boys
JV and varsity basketball games. Hungry spectators
paid a mere $5 and got to taste a slice of pizza from
each pizzeria. What a bargain! Once they tried
every slice, they voted for their favorite pizza. This
years winner was NH Beach Pizza. The event was
a success, and NH Beach Pizza got some love on
Valentines Day.

This was not supposed to happen. The looks on the
faces of Salem supporters on Saturday night, March 8,
at the Salem Icenter told the same, disappointing story:
the second-seeded Blue Devils were not
supposed to lose. Not here, not now and
not to them.
But, despite an outstanding regular
season in which they nished 15-2-1 and
earned the second seed for the NHIAA
Division I Championship tournament,
the Salem High School hockey team was
defeated by seventh-seeded Pinkerton
Academy, 2-0, ending their hopes of
hoisting a state championship trophy this
year.
The loss was not due to lack of effort
or talent on the ice for Salem. Junior
goalkeeper Sam MacDonald, as he has
done all season long, anchored the Blue
Devils between the pipes. MacDonald
made a number of incredible saves that kept
Salem in the contest. MacDonald allowed
only a single goal throughout the game. It
occurred with just 4:27 remaining in the
rst period. The Astros broke through a
crack in the Salem defense to take the 1-0
advantage. Pinkerton would retain the lead,
1-0, at the end of the rst period.
There was no need to panic for the Blue
Devils, as they had suffered from a rst-
period slump all season long. The last time
these teams squared off, on Pinkertons
home ice, the Astros had led 1-0 through the rst period.
Salem would go on to win that contest, 2-1, and hoped to
do the same in this postseason matchup.
Salem had an opportunity to tie the game in the second
with a little over three minutes remaining in the period. A
Pinkerton player was called for tripping to set up a Salem
power play. The Blue Devils could do little with the
chance as Pinkerton held on to their one-goal lead heading
into the nal period of play.
Neither team held much back in the third period.
Emotions erupted, on occasion, as defenders on both
squads landed big hits on their opponents. MacDonald
continued to make phenomenal saves for Salem. The Blue
Devils Cody Soucy, Chris Lemay, Jake Bartlett and Paul
Antkowiak all tried to tie the game in the closing moments
but were halted in their attempts. Despite Salems
desperation, the Astros tacked
on an empty-net score with 48.2
seconds left.
The buzzer sounded moments
later, ending Salems postseason
hopes before they had a chance
to begin. In the semi-nal round
of the Division I Championship
Tournament, Londonderry High
defeated Pinkerton Academy, 5-1,
to advance to the nals.
The Blue Devils concluded
the 2014 season with a 15-3-1
overall record. Salem High will
lose six senior varsity players
due to graduation, but will have
an incredible core of players
returning next season, including
MacDonald and Soucy. The
returning Blue Devils will
remember the feeling of this
upset loss as they prepare for
next season, with championship-
caliber goals.

Blue Devils quarterfnal loss.

In the preliminary round of the NHIAA Division I
Boys Basketball Championship tournament, the 13th-
seeded Salem High School Boys Basketball squad faced
off against fourth-seeded Londonderry High School on
Tuesday, March 4 at Londonderry. The Lancers narrowly
avoided defeat, overcoming Salem, 43-42.
The rst time these teams met, on February 14 in
Salem, the Lancers defeated Salem, 63-50. The Blue
Devils, having learned from their mistakes in the regular
season, came out ready to play.
Salem High even led the Lancers through the rst three
quarters of play, 37-32, but could not hold on for victory.
Londonderry depended on a fourth-quarter surge to
rescue them from upset at the hands of the Blue Devils.

his high school career, leading the Blue Devils with 12

Salem High concluded their 2014 season with an
overall record of 7-12. Although losing a pair of seniors,
the Blue Devils will return to the court for the 2014-2015
season with a number of experienced returning players
that Head Coach Rob McLaughlin hopes will lead his
team further into the postseason.
