A Dream Come True: Campbell Lady
Cougars are State Champs Again
by Phillip Nichols
In the spring, catcher Brittany McNulla was hoping for
the opportunity to win another championship, ending
her high school career on a high note. Flash forward
to June 14, and the number three-seeded Campbell
Cougars were to face the number one-seeded White
Mountains Regional of Whitefield for that chance. The
Lady Cougars showed poise and patience, winning 1-0 at
Plymouth State University on June 14.
Could you ask for a better day for the Campbell
Cougars as a whole? Earlier in the day the baseball team
won their Division III State Championship game, and the
Lady Cougars looking to win their third title in four years.
Adding to the excitement was the chance for Coach
Raycraft, retiring at the end of the season, to win his third
title in four years.
The Lady Cougars were there to defend the title that
they had won the year before against the same team, but
yet were thought to be the underdogs. Senior catcher
McNulla and pitcher Emily Paquin, who had been
playing together for the past 12 years (the last four as
Cougars), were determined to hold up their end of the
bargain. Their teammates also had their backs.
Both teams played one another tough. It was truly a
pitcher’s duel. Emily Paquin, pitching in her final game
as a Cougar, was able to hold off the bats of White
Mountains with the help of her teammates. Coach
Raycraft speaking of Paquin described her as a, “pressure
pitcher, who thrives on competition.”
The game remained scoreless until the sixth inning,
when with a combination of good batting and base
running, the Lady Cougars chipped away at the Spartans’
Erika Millet to score the game’s one and only run.
However, the Spartans had their chances in the
seventh inning. Emily Paquin was pitching to a Spartan
Campbell High Graduates 101
Seniors Filled with Respect, Reflection and Remembrances
by Doug Robinson
The back page of the Campbell High School
Graduation program simply states, “Wheresoever you
go, go with all your heart,” Kongz. Throughout the
entire graduation ceremonies, speaker after speaker
spoke about that passion, that desire, to “go with all
your heart,” while drawing on the students’ reflections
and remembrances of their educational experiences in
Litchfield.
Men gowned in red, and ladies in black, the graduates
joined their teachers and administrators as they marched
into the Campbell High School gymnasium through an
archway with the word “character” written above. Only
the teachers and the administrators draped their tassels
to the left side of their mortar boards. Soon, the 101
men and women of the 2014 Campbell High School
graduating class would also hang their tassels on the left
Taking their seats at center court, the high school band
continued to play “Pomp and Circumstance” until all
were seated.
Hanging on the walls of the gymnasium rest silent, yet
bold remembers of victory after victory this graduating
class shares together. NHIAA Sportsmanship Award
(2010-2011), softball champions, wrestling champions,
basketball champions list only a few of the dozens of
athletic accomplishments of the 2014 graduating class.
At times the cheers and applause of those in attendance
became deafening. Cameras clicked continuously,
capturing those moments of pride forever. “Kayla, over
here,” “Stuart, we love you” and ”Missy” were only three
of those 101 names being heard as parents and loved
ones shouted for their pride and joy.
“It took us 12 years to get to this moment,” stated
CHS senior Molly Gillespie. This is “nothing compared
to each and every accomplishment” you have done.
And in keeping with that tradition, the graduates were
Cougars Roar to Victory against
Somersworth to Win State Baseball Title
by Phillip Nichols
A late sixth inning rally by the Campbell Cougars leads
to a Division III title over the Somersworth Hilltoppers,
3-2, at Delta Dental Stadium in Manchester on June 14.
Persistence, discipline and focus are what got them to
the championship round, but “family” brought them to
victory.
Throughout the season, the Campbell Cougars
baseball team showed they had heart. They battled and
worked hard all season long. This hard work earned
them the number-one rank in the state this year.
Entering the playoffs with a 14-2 record, the Cougars
had a first round bye. In the following rounds, they
demonstrated the extra rest was good by crushing Bishop
Brady 12-2 (round 2), winning a close one against Inter-
Lakes, 10-9, and devouring Berlin 10-0 at Southern NH
University in the semi-finals.
Number-two Somersworth, with a similar record, took
a similar path. The two teams split games during the
regular season. This would be the rubber match between
the two, with a lot riding on the outcome.
To the winner go the spoils.
Ryan Glendye was on the mound for Campbell and
played with a great deal of emotion. Glendye, who
finished the season with a 5-0 record, gave up just
four hits and one earned run, while striking out five
Somersworth players.
Coach Jim Gorham complimented Ryan on his
play: “From time to time you can see he’s a very, very
emotional kid who’s tough on the mound like guys from
the 1950s and ‘60s. Ryan’s all emotion.”
The Cougars’ scoring and hitting was timely as well.
With the score tied 2-2 going into the 6th inning, Coach
Alvirne High School Sends off Class
of 2014 to Begin their Next Adventure
by Tom Tollefson
Maroon and gold colors flooded the Verizon Wireless
Arena in Manchester on Thursday, June 12, as the 330
Alvirne High School graduates concluded their journey
as the Class of 2014.
“Graduation is always a wonderful night. It brings
families and the community together. It’s a great
celebration,” said Hudson Superintendent Brian Lane.
According to Class President Gurbir Kalsi’s speech,
the metaphoric colors of the graduates’ individual
personalities and talents blended together to make a
brightly colored painting for their futures as they did
during their time at Alvirne as well.
“We began with a black canvas. It being empty, the
canvas represented our curiosity to discover the many
possibilities at Alvirne. As we transitioned through
freshman, sophomore, junior and senior year we filled
the canvas with a beautiful painting,” Grebier said.
According to Kalsi, the graduates’ high school years
were rooted in self discovery as they learned more about
themselves and the world.
“By the time we discovered ourselves, we created
a painting that represents our achievements and
our ambitions, reflects our outstanding growth, and
symbolizes the class of 2014 and we did this together all
for one and one for all,” Kalsi said.
Kalsi also reminded his classmates that they did not
get to graduation alone and had many others who had
helped them along the way.
“Who can forget the teacher that helped you find
the agricultural wing or the guidance counselor who
helped you map out your four-year plan? Class of 2014,
we have a great deal to be proud of, however we must
remember that every great artist has a great mentor.
We’ve been challenged and inspired by our thought-

Alvirne High School Principal Steve Beals at the end of commencement.

Hudson Community Remembers Nicole
by Tom Tollefson
Patches of pink colored the field at Benson Park
in front of the A-frame on the evening of Saturday,
June 14. About 500 people, many dressed in
pink shirts, with just as many pink balloons flying
overhead, were gathered in celebration of the life
of Hudson Memorial eighth grader Nicole Paige
Jacques. Pink was Nicole’s favorite color as many
of her close family and friends know well. Nicole
passed away on May 29 after a four-month long
battle with a rare form of liver cancer known as
Fibrolamellar Hepatocellular Carcinoma.
“It’s so amazing to have everyone here. It
shows how much Nicole meant to everyone,”
said Nicole’s mother Nancy Jacques.
Nicole’s friends and family filled the
atmosphere with laughs and hugs as they
remembered the 14-year-old honor student who
touched so many in the community. A projector
played through a slide show of photos of Nicole
as everyone visited and enjoyed the sunny
weather during the memorial.
“It’s beautiful,” Nicole’s great-aunt Linda
Mahoney said about the memorial. “She would
have loved it just like the kids.”
Toward the end of the evening, everyone wrote
a personalized note to Nicole and tied it to a
balloon, then released them all together. Many
tears were shed as her friends and family hugged
and held hands in support of each other.
A eulogy, written by Nicole’s parents, was also
read aloud during the memorial. The Jacques’
highlighted their daughter’s loving and caring
nature and strong character.
“We will never forget the day that she was
born. She was an angel and a gift from heaven.
We were excited for her birth but worried if we
were ready to be parents. However, the moment
we held her in our arms we knew that we would
do anything for her, she had us wrapped around
her finger,” her parents said in the eulogy.
Everyone remembered Nicole for her “smile
and laugh,” especially her boyfriend Justin
Carbonneau whose fondest memories of her
included recording music videos together on an
iPad. The two had known each other since kindergarten, a time
when Carbonneau’s parents best remember Nicole as being a
positive influence on their son.
Three of Nicole’s closest friends, Kirsten Rourke, Emily
Chaisson, and Hanna Vaillancourt were dressed in pink tie-dye
shirts in support of her. The girls, together with Nicole, called
themselves the “Metals.”
“Mean Girls was our favorite movie and the popular mean girls
were called the ‘Plastics’ so we thought
we would be the nice version of them,”
Rourke explained.
The girls had been supportive of their
friend every step through her struggle
against cancer.
“As soon as she was diagnosed we
spent the weekend at her house making
shirts to support her,” Chaisson said.
One of Nicole’s last requests was to
have the tumors removed and sent to
some research facilities to be studied in
hopes that someday a cure can be found.
Her tumors are now being researched at
Dana-Farber Cancer Center in Boston,
Memorial Sloan-Kettering in New York
and at the Tucker Davis Fibrolamellar
Research Facility at The Rockefeller
University, also in New York.
The Jacques family also collected
donations for the Fibrolamellar Cancer
Foundation (an organization that
researches ways to treat Fibrolamellar
Cancer) and new and unwrapped toys
for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and
Children’s Hospital.
“A lot of the toys are well worn (at both
cancer institutes) and this is Nicole’s way
of giving back,” said Nicole’s father Steve
Jacques.
Nicole was an honor student who won
several awards during her time at Hudson Memorial such as the
2012 Bronze Academic Achievement Award and the Hudson
Memorial School Colt Award. She also loved cheerleading
and cheered for the Hudson Memorial Colts and the Hudson-
Litchfield Bears.

Romance, Comedy and a Man-eating Plant Equals Entertaining Theater
by AJ Dickinson
On Sunday, June 8 Alvirne’s Class Act thespians presented the
comedy/horror rock musical, “Little Shop of Horrors” at 1 p.m. After
previously performing the classic theatrical masterpiece Friday and
Saturday, the cast and crew who had practiced so rigorously seemed
to have the entertaining show perfected.
After being originally produced at the Orpheum Theatre in New
York City by WPA Theatre, the classic tale describes a hopeless
florist shop owner who will do anything do get sales up. After one
of his underestimated and nerdy employees somehow invents an
unknown rare plant species business begins to boom. The one major
problem with this strange and exotic plant is that it feeds on human
blood. The nearly two hour-long musical/comedy was performed
with confidence and pizzazz leaving the many audience members
chuckling throughout the performance.
The Alvirne Drama Club program seems to get better at every one
of their amazing performances throughout the year. If you missed
this performance they will be having a rendition of “Romeo & Juliet”
premiering on August 8 and 9.

In many ways, McKenzie Lowe is a
typical 12 year old, looking forward to
the end of the school year and all the fun
that summer brings. What’s not typical
is that this summer McKenzie will also
begin treatment to save her life.
As many in the Hudson community
know, McKenzie was diagnosed with
diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, a type
of inoperable brain tumor, in November
2012. The tumor was not destroyed
by chemotherapy and radiation, so
McKenzie’s family and friends worked
tirelessly to receive permission by
the Food and Drug Administration to
allow treatment with Antineoplaston,
developed by Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski
in his Texas clinic to treat brain tumors,
but not FDA approved. The FDA granted
permission this spring.
Although Dr. Burzynski’s clinic is providing
the medication free of charge, it will still cost
approximately $15,000 per month for medical
supplies, consultations, nursing and administrative
fees not covered by insurance. The length of
treatment time will depend on the results, so that
is yet to be determined. Treatment is planned to
begin June 23.
To help the Lowe family with costs not covered
by insurance, people have hosted fundraisers,
and more are being planned. On Tuesday, June
24, Kendall Pond Pizza, at both their Hudson and
Windham locations, will donate proceeds from
all carryout and dine-in orders from 5 to 8 p.m.
In addition, a community-wide fundraising event
is being planned for Saturday, July 12 at the Fish
and Game Club in Hudson from 2 to 10 p.m.
Tickets to the July event are $10 per adult or $35
per family. Those wishing to donate gift baskets or
raffle items may contact Kim Frenette at 566-7221
or Frank LaFountain at (508) 498-8057.
“McKenzie is great,” said her grandfather, Frank
LaFountain. “She’s running around, she wants
to do everything, she is just her normal self, and
she’s excited to begin treatment.”
For more information, please visit the Friends of
McKenzie Lowe Facebook page.

Hudson Memorial School
faculty and staff recently hosted
its annual Bingo night for
incoming sixth grade students
and their parents as part of their
transition to the middle school.
The event, held Tuesday, June 10
at HMS, began with tours of the
school by teachers, mostly sixth
grade staff but also unified arts
and music teachers, and ended
with numerous games of Bingo
called by staff and administrators.
Lenny, the school mascot, also
attended the event to welcome
the new HMS students.
Prizes, including gift cards
to local establishments, were
given out to each round’s winner. Donations were
made by Shorty’s Restaurant, T-Bones, Gold’s
Gym, Cahill’s Subs, Color Trends Salon, HMS
Cheerleaders, and by a number of faculty and
staff.

Mrs. Johnstone’s class is helping make a whole
lot of animals happy this month. The first graders
at Griffin Memorial School have collected much-
needed items for the Nashua Humane Society.
Each student was able to choose something to
bring in, be it a collar, dog food or gently used
towels and blankets to donate. They presented
their items to the class and then helped organize
the supplies
for delivery.

Other members of the GMS community were
also encouraged to participate and the class was
able to collect lots of things to help. This is just
the latest in a series of activities Mrs. Johnstone’s
class has done to reach out, learn about, and help
their community. They have learned the entire
Pledge of Allegiance in sign language, showing
an understanding of helping others who may
hear differently than them. At the holidays, they
collected items for a family homeless shelter.
Helping animals is a great way for them to finish
off a special year of learning.

Hudson Fire Log
Hudson - Litchfield News | June 20, 2014 - 5
Twenty seasons ago Jim and Diane Hedlund opened the first Advanced Spa And Pool in Pelham, N.H.
After more than a decade of operating a very successful construction business in the greater Boston area
we decided to try our hands at retail and keeping work closer to home. Having operated a part-time
swimming pool installation and repair company since the early ‘80s, the challenge was not the technical
side of the business but delving into an entirely new career path, “Retail.”
To make the decision more challenging Diane was pregnant with twins (thus the reason to work closer
to home). The twins are now 19 and 2014 is the first season that all three children have worked together
at ASAP! So as we enter our 20th season having survived three recessions and numerous business
transformations, we welcome you to our brand new facility at 162 Lowell Road (Route 3A) in Hudson,
N.H. (3/10 of a mile north from our previous location).
About Advanced Spa And Pool:
ASAP is a family-owned and operated specialty retailer of anything for the back yard. We offer Patio
Furniture, Grills, Smokers (The Big Green Egg), Candles, Chimes, Hammocks, Yard Art, and of course
Swimming Pools (Above Ground and In Ground), Spas (Hot Tubs), and Pool and Spa Chemicals and water
Maintenance Systems.
Beyond retail Advanced Spa And Pool is the area’s premier Service and Install company for swimming
pools and Spas. ASAP also offers services most other pool companies don’t. ASAP is a fully licensed and
insured full service builder, remodeler, and service/repair company. We offer full general contracting
services such as electrical, patio, fence, deck, and weekly maintenance services. In the off season we
also offer expert home remodeling and repair services.
Why should you choose Advanced Spa And Pool?
Striving to be our best is not just a tag line in our mission statement. We live it every day. ASAP trains
constantly and every staff member is required to complete advanced water chemistry courses. In addition
to in-store training, every year we close the store in the spring for two days and all of our employees
attend the Bioguard training seminar. Bioguard is the nation’s largest supplier of pool and spa chemicals.
All of our Lead service technicians are CPO Certified (Certified Pool Operators), and the owner of the
company is the President of the APSP NE Chapter (The Nation’s Largest Swimming Pool Trade Association)
for all of New England.
ASAP employs the most conscientious, dedicated, and professional staff and this shows through their
customer satisfaction. Our Service Manager is professional, detailed, and handles every project with a
level of commitment not found often in any industry. The service coordinator is efficient, caring, and
extremely committed to serving every customer in a manner that lets every customer know we care.
The retail management team goes above and beyond to exceed the needs of our customers, and the
ownership exhibits a strong level of commitment to our local community.
Please stop by and give us the opportunity to earn your trust with your next backyard project.
What can ASAP do for me?
Advanced Spa And Pool builds the best Vinyl Lined Swimming Pools in the area. Not so long ago a
vinyl lined pool meant a rectangle pool with very limited options. ASAP loves a challenge. We were
among the first to advance the vinyl lined swimming pool to cutting edge technologies. In floor cleaning
systems, custom benches, steps, sundecks, and seating are benchmarks in a quality design builder
(Advanced Spa And Pool has won two APSP design awards for our vinyl lined swimming pools). We also
offer mineral/salt water pools, custom LED lighting and innovative water features.
Advanced Spa And Pool Moves to New Hudson Location
Two decades of creating family memories and still aiming higher
Renovations can transform your old pool
Let ASAP turn your old pool into a new backyard
sanctuary for family and friends. We can rebuild any
pool concrete, gunite, or vinyl and make it better
than new. Adding new technologies such as energy
efficient pumps, lighting, and mineral sanitizing can
make your pool more enjoyable and much easier to
maintain.
Please visit our new, modern, and convenient
location at 162 Lowell Road (Route 3A) Hudson (1.5
miles north of Sam’s and Walmart).
Check us out at www.advancedspaandpool.com,
and www.facebook.com/advancedspaandpool.
Call us at 579.2727 (ASAP) or email us at asappool@
aol.com.
ASAP builds its own above ground pools. We
do not subcontract the installation. This way
we are in complete control. We give an hon-
est expectation of timing and meet or beat your
expectations. We clean up our debris and leave
your property in the condition you can expect
from professionals.
We also build custom wood decks for the best
experience in having an above ground pool.
Again our crews do the work. Professional and
detailed we can turn your property into a dream
backyard.
Yes there’s a pool in there! And a Spa!

Alvirne High School students, Ryan Gursky and Marisa Ratte, were among the
winners of the State of NH 2014 Alcohol Awareness Poster Contest and will be
recognized at the NH Fisher Cats pre-game ceremony on August 17. Forty students
from Debi Rapson’s Multimedia/Digital Communications classes created posters for
the contest that increased awareness of the value of making wise choices relative to
the use of alcohol. The annual contest is planned around prom time and emphasizes
more positive ways to have fun and stay safe. AHS students and teachers voted on their
favorite posters. The top three AHS winners and a multitude of entrees from other local
high schools were sent to the state for consideration.
Jeanie Barkley Memorial Fund Continues to Give Back
Pelham Road Home
Damaged by Basement Fire
by Doug Robinson
Jeanie Barkley lived her life by the mantra that “Giving is Good.”
Recently, the Jeanie Barkley Memorial Fund, in partnership with
the American Red Cross, sponsored a blood drive at the Hudson
Community Center. According to JMBF’s mission, “True giving is
unconditional giving to help people, a worthy cause, a friend or
stranger without expectation of personal gain from the gift. Gifts
in this spirit can be time, money, badly needed goods or supplies,
or just simple moral support. The mission of JBMF is to build an
organization that raises these gifts to support worthy causes and
to promote the spirit of giving throughout our communities and
hopefully to other communities over time. Giving is Good.”
The Jeanie Barkley Memorial Fund strives to support nonprofit
organizations that Jeanie believed in including the Alvirne Friends of
Music, the American Red Cross, Aplastic Anemia, MDS International
Foundation and other groups involved with stem cell research,
oncology, and hospice. A standing commitment of JBMF is to award
annual scholarships to students graduating from Alvirne High School
whose academic merit, extracurricular participation and exemplary
volunteerism in support of community activities emulate the values
and vision of Jeanie Barkley as a community leader.
For seven years, JMBF has awarded a $1,000 scholarship to an
Alvirne High School senior who exemplifies Jeannie’s vision in an
effort to support that student’s higher education desires. An addition,
three students were also awarded scholarships.
In the words of JMBF: “On December 22, 2007, a family and
community lost a loving and devoted wife and mother, a dear friend,
a tireless volunteer who gave her all to help and support her family
and community. A vibrant, positive, vivacious lover of life. We lost
her after a long fight to aplastic anemia, a bone marrow disease,
where your body stops making blood cells and platelets. Those
who knew Jeanie – through her volunteer work, her church, her
children’s school and activities or just knew her as a friend – will
always remember her contagious smile, her sense of humor and
of course, her giggle. Every group in which she was involved, be
it neighborhood, volunteer organization or parent support group,
has become part of her ever expanding family. She is terribly
missed, but her indomitable spirit will live on through everyone she
touched.”
Those wishing to contribute to JBMF are encouraged to email:
John Barkley, JBMF03051@gmail.com.
Longtime friend to Jeanie, Tracy and daughter Kayla, support Ashley Tomaswick,
while she donates her blood for a sixth time during the
annual American Red Cross blood drive.

Information Liaison
Hudson
firefighters were
alerted to a house
fire on Pelham Road
at 5:17 a.m. on
Saturday, June 14.
Hudson Fire Alarm
received one call
from the resident
reporting the fire.
The caller reported
smoke and fire in
the building. First
arriving firefighters
found a 20-foot-by-
40-foot single story
home with heavy
smoke showing.
The occupants
of the home met
firefighters outside
on their arrival.
Fire crews
entered the home’s
first floor and determined the fire to be
centered in the basement. Two attack
lines entered the basement and through
heavy heat and smoke contained the
flames to the basement. The bulk of
the fire was knocked down within 14
minutes of arrival of the first-arriving
apparatus. Firefighters were successful
stopping the fire from spreading to the
first floor of the home. Firefighters
worked an additional hour to wet down
and overhaul the fire area.
A total of 12 firefighters, officers and
chief officers, staffing two engines, one
ladder, and three command vehicles,
reported to the scene. Mutual aid from
Nashua and Windham was returned
before their arrival, and no injuries
were reported. The home suffered fire
and water damage in the basement and
smoke damage on the first floor.
The fire remains under investigation
by the Hudson Fire Prevention Division

Janice Mary (Bossie) Condo
Janice Mary (Bossie) Condo, 66, of Nashua, died on June 15,
2014, at the Community Hospice House in Merrimack, after a
battle with lung cancer.
Janice was born October 24, 1947, in Nashua, and was a
longtime resident of Harbor homes and attended Nashua High
School.
Janice’s favorite places were being at the ocean at Hampton
Beach and taking long walks along the seashore. Deep sea
fishing with her father was one of her favorite sports. She also
enjoyed the cool crisp air of the White Mountains and country
music. Janice always had a deck of cards in her hands and she
would either be playing solitaire or a card game with one of
her friends. She would always make you laugh with her sense
of humor.
In passing, Janice joins her mother and her father, Bernice (Rockus) Bossie and Wilfred
L. Bossie; and two brothers, Richard A. Bossie and Dennis B. Bossie.
Janice is survived by her son, Toby Brian Condo of Nova Scotia; her daughter, Sara
Ross of Sacramento, CA; two grandchildren, Micah and Tyrone Ross of Sacramento, CA; a
brother, Ronald Bossie and his wife Catherine Bossie of Tucson, AZ; a sister, Brenda Kalil
and her husband Charles of North Conway; two nieces, Liliyan Ekbatani and her husband
Touraj Ekbatani and their two children, Sarah and Farrah Ekbatani of Hudson, and Lisa
Duchesne and her husband Michael Duchesne of Maine; and a nephew, and Charles D.
Kalil and his wife Christina Kalil and their two children, Calvin and Colton Kalil of North
Conway.
An exceptional thank you to Carol Karnis of Milford, who took Janice under her wing
for many years and every week Janice always looked forward to seeing Carol and she was
one of Janice’s favorite people. A special thanks to all the employees of Home Health and
Hospice Care in Merrimack for their kindness and expertise in Janice’s final days.
A private gathering was held for the family at Davis Funeral Home, One Lock St.,
Nashua.
Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider a memorial donation
to Harbor Homes, 45 High St., Nashua, NH 03060 or to the charity of one’s choice.
The Davis Funeral Home has been placed in charge of arrangements. An online guest
book is available at www.davisfuneralhomenh.com.
Mary Ann (Provencal) Gendron
Mary Ann (Provencal) Gendron passed peacefully on June 16, 2014. She was born
in Sanford, Maine, and graduated from St. Ignatius School. Mary Ann wed Raymond V.
Gendron on May 5, 1956. They settled in Hudson.
Mary Ann was a dedicated and loving wife and mother. She and Ray raised seven
children. While raising her children, she attended the Elsa Williams School of Needlepoint.
She taught needlepoint and bargello classes at her home
for a number of years.
After raising her children, Mary Ann resumed work
outside the home. She was an administrative assistant
at Digital Equipment Corporation and later worked at
Oxford Health Plans before retiring.
Mary Ann loved to quilt. She was a member of the
Hannah Dustin Quilt Guild and the U’D’Cides quilt group
with whom she enjoyed many hours of friendship. She was a generous spirit; she
knitted hats and worked on quilts for charitable causes.
Mary Ann participated in aqua fitness at the Nashua YMCA and enjoyed lunches
and gatherings with her friends.
She was a longtime parishioner of St. John XXIII Parish in Hudson. During this
time, she was a Eucharistic minister and an active member of the bereavement
committee.
She is survived by her loving husband, Raymond; and her children and their
spouses, including Kathy Hogan, Steve Gendron, Rachel and Don Ouellette, Linda
and Chris Masucci, David and Candy Gendron, Cheryl Gendron and Dale Compton,
Jeff and Kathy Gendron. In addition, Mary Ann has seven grandchildren, all of whom
she loved very much, including Nick Gendron, Dominic and Peter Masucci, Andrea
Ouellette, Chelsea and Cory Hogan, and John
Gendron. Additionally, she leaves her sister,
Annette and Robert Foisy and brother, Robert
Provencal; and nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her loving mother,
Yvonne Provencal.
A funeral Mass will be held Friday, June 20, at

Father Michael Celebrates Mass at St. Kathryn Parish
by Laurie Jasper
The Reverend Michael Zgonc
presided as the principal celebrant
Saturday, June 14, at the 4 p.m. Mass
at St. Kathryn Parish. Ordained a
priest for the Diocese of Manchester
exactly one week prior, on June 7,
Fr. Michael returned to his one-time
parish, where he first heard the call
to the priesthood, to celebrate a Mass
of Thanksgiving. The Reverend Gary
Belliveau, former long-time pastor
of St. Kathryn Parish, who is now
the pastor at Corpus Christi Parish
in Portsmouth, accompanied Fr.
Michael.
The two concelebrated Mass
with the Reverend Joseph Cooper,
St. Kathryn’s current pastor, who
welcomed Fr. Michael back to
St. Kathryn’s for the first time as
a priest at the start of Mass to
rousing, sustained applause from
the congregation. St. Kathryn’s
choir enriched the Mass with their
selections. St. Kathryn’s Vocation
Support Association hosted a
reception for Fr. Michael after Mass. S

Thumbs Up? Thumbs Down? Thumbs Up? Thumbs Down?
“Thumbs down to the
neighborhood kids who
broke into several houses in
our neighborhood. We see
that your little brother has
a lot of things in his front
yard. Wouldn’t it really
upset you if someone stole
that stuff? Please respect
other people’s property.
Thank you.”
“Thumbs up/Thumbs
down. The bashing of
Hillary Clinton is useless
because Republicans
have already shown
Americans what they
have to offer by way of
the Bush Administration.
And since then things
have only gotten worse.
How can you close down
government for selfish
reasons and expect to win
the White House? How
can you only work for
wealthy families and to
vote against the people
of America and expect
to win the White House?
Americans want to end the
Republican Party, not vote
for it. Any Democrat could
win. Hillary is already our
president and is just waiting
to be sworn in.”
“Thumbs up to Voting
and Voicing your concerns
to improve this town as
a whole. We need to
continue to stay informed,
read the budget/warrant
articles and amounts in the
surplus funds in full to get
a better understanding of
how these warrant articles
affects us financially, the
duration, and are the raises
necessary. Stay informed,
keep taxes from rising
unnecessarily, and support
out towns small businesses.
As always, use your voice
and vote to help yourself
and your neighbor.”
“Thumbs up to all the
award and scholarship
winners from Campbell High School. Best of luck in
all future endeavors. Also, I would like to thank CHS
and those organizations that offered scholarships
both for young women and the young men. Only
10 years ago, we were outraged at the discrimination
against our daughters in terms of scholarship awards,
now we accept the same discrimination against
our sons. Three organizations offered scholarships
for women only, not allowing men to compete.
Don’t be disheartened young men, New England in
particular sees Reverse Discrimination as equality.
Other regions in the US and countries do not
hold this vile view. I strongly encourage the CHS
Administration to reconsider allowing scholarship
presentations by any group that would discriminate
against our Daughters or our Sons!”
“Thumbs up and congratulations to Emily P. on an
incredible season! You deserve All State!”
“Thumbs down to the thumbs about the
‘player of the year’ last year who did not win
anything this year. He quit on his team and was
not deserving on any awards, it’s a ‘team’ sport
and unfortunately he has yet to learn that. It’s
unfortunate that his skills outweigh his maturity
and loyalty.”
“Thumbs down to the person who comes
from a family of veterans. Explain to all the U.S.
veterans that have fought in Iraq, how Obama
took away their benefits, their VA healthcare, call
them domestic terrorists, their ability to defend
themselves during war time, you have no idea
what you are talking about. The entire country
of Iraq has been dismantled this week by Iraqi
and Iranian terrorists. Obama did not kill or take
care of any terrorists or stop Al Qaida, he helped
them grow. We are now looking at issues with
Russia and Iran over this. Thank you, again, for
your blind willingness to not see what is really
happening in this country. Sad ... for U.S. troops,
because of people like you.”
“Thumbs up to Alvirne High School’s Rhetta
Sabean her selection to serve on the
11th grade Science Test Item Review
committee for 2014. We are so proud
of you!”
“Thumbs up to Mr. Bryan K. Lane.
You are an incredibly strong leader
and a positive influence for all the
students and faculty of the Hudson
School District. You constantly
display perseverance and above all
confidence in yourself to all you
meet. You are a gifted educator,
trusted mentor, and great friend. We
believe in you!”
“Thumbs down. I am getting tired
of all these totally uniformed people
bashing the Republicans when it is
the liberal Democrats that have given
us all the problems and scandals.
Remember the Democrats had a
super majority for the first 2 years of
King Obama’s reign and did nothing
but make excuses for why the true
problems of this country were ignored
and remain unsolved. Obama’s
approval rating is now in the thirties
and people are realizing the liberal
Democrat agenda is destructive for
America. The lies and deception
of Obama and his administration
hopefully will come to a halt in
November. People want their country
back and want all the deception and
lies to end.”
“Thumbs down to all the parents
that do not know the pickup
procedure at HMS a week before
school ends. FYI-this was on the
school website: ‘Incoming 6th Grade
Information - 2013-2014 School
Hours of Operation, Student Day
- 7:45 am to 2:20 pm - Late Bell is
7:45; Student Supervision begins
at 7:30 am. Please do not drop
your student off before then. Main
Office - 7:00 am to 3:30 pm, Teacher
Day - 7:30 am to 2:30 pm. Pick Up/
Drop Off - front parking lot only. No
parking or stopping on Memorial
Drive.’ Glad I can read.”
“Thumbs down to the Hudson
school district. Grades for HMS
closed on 6/13, but the kids are in
school until 6/25. Does that mean
there will be no teaching for the next
9 days of school? I know everyone is eager to
be done with the school year, but if you have to
be there ... why not teach and
learn? So disappointed, Mr.
Lane.”
“Thumbs down to the local
farm stand for not giving a
discount on a flat of eggplants
of which half were broken and
would never produce. You
said you’d rather throw them
away than take half price.
Glad business is so good
that you can afford to lose
a loyal customer that’s been
purchasing off your husband
and his parents for 20-plus years. Good luck
with your business as you won’t be getting mine
anymore.”
“Thumbs down to the Principle at AHS for
taking what was shaping up to be a very nice
2014 graduation ceremony to making it look
like a circus. You took all the traditional and
pageantry expectations that is normally done
and required the graduates to perform some
stupid ‘surprise’ dance, or whatever that was.
The information my graduate
has shared with me about you
is beginning to make sense.
I’m glad I don’t have to deal
with you any longer.”
“Thumbs down to the
principal at Alvirne High
School for making the
graduation about you and not
the graduates at the end. I’m
glad that my graduate refrained
from the ‘selfie’ crap.”
“Thumbs up to Annika
K .for all her successes at
Nottingham West! We are so
proud of you and know you
will do great at the middle school! With love,
and so much, Mom, Dad, Athena and Roman
(aka Jellybean).”
“Thumbs down to the man (grounds keeper)
at Benson’s park who yelled at a 3 and 8 year
old for trying skipping rocks. ‘Stop, do you
want to ruin the place.’ Thank you for judging
them at an early age.”
“Thumbs up! I agree! I have waited a
long time to hear someone else say that Dick
Cheney (who I believe) was VP of Halliburton,
but relinquished himself from the company
to become VP of the U.S. Hmm and why is
it that the largest construction going on by
U.S. contractors was to build Halliburton in
the Middle East? Republicans can’t let go of
Benghazi, but what about the thousands of
young men and women whose lives were lost
for oil? Oh, did I forget to mention Bush is also
a ‘Big Oil’ man!”
“Thumbs up to all Hudson residents that vote
decreasing the tax burden on struggling families
and seniors. Next year please vote! To help
families be able to afford their taxes. Homes
will be reassessed in 2015.”
“Thumbs up to the youth recreation softball
and soccer leagues in Litchfield for awarding
scholarships to graduating seniors!
“Thumbs up, way up, to our librarians at
Aaron Cutler Library. Thank you for all that you
do and for being such an important part of our
community. Your kindness and graciousness to
your patrons are appreciated!”
“Thumbs down. Thumbs way down to the
neighbor. The novelty of that rooster crowing
has long since been worn out. Please take a
look at your neighbors; they are people who
work hard, need to sleep to get to work in
the morning. There is nothing pleasant about
your rooster crowing at 3:30am to late in the
evening. Despite what the town ordnance
says; noise is noise. Your chickens don’t need a
Rooter to lay eggs. Please be a good neighbor
and get rid of it. Signed one of your many
Neighbors.”
“Thumbs up to the patron for reminding
library staff that, even though we can’t see
them, there may be people doing work in the
North Room who would appreciate quieter
voices. We promise to do better.”

The Litchfield
Lions Club hosted
its second Annual
Duck Race
Fundraiser at
McQuesten Farm
Saturday, June 7.
With the top
cash prize of $500
and 29 follow-up
prizes, over 100
spectators lined
the banks of the
McQuesten River
and goat feeding
area to cheer on
their quackers.
“One hundred percent of monies earned goes
back into our community,” commented Christie
McQuesten. There were water gun and duck toss
games and prizes for kids, with hot dogs, popcorn
and ice cream for snacks.
The ducks were dumped by front end loader,
and Jake McQuesten battled the inflated duck
mascot and rapids to help the ducks to the
finish line. The top prizes were cash, and lots of
donated gift certificates, gift cards, etc followed.
Almost everyone walked away with a prize,”
commented McQuesten.
“We had great weather for the day, so it all went
better than planned.” We raised over $1,200
for the Litchfield community - thanks you to all
the volunteers and
donors.”

Beware of
Telephone Scam
submitted by the Hillsborough
County Sheriff’s Office
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is
warning the public about individuals posing as
members of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s
Office or other law enforcement personnel as
part of a telephone scam.
The individual(s) call the victims and identify
themselves as Hillsborough County Sheriff’s
Office deputies or law enforcement officials
from other agencies. The impersonators inform
their victims that there is a warrant for their
arrest, and that enforcement action will be
taken against them unless they pay a fine. In
most cases, the impersonators instruct their
victims to pay the “fine” via a Green Dot
money card. The impersonators instruct the
victim to travel to a convenience store and
purchase a Green Dot money card and add
the fine amount on the card, usually several
hundred dollars. The impersonators instruct the
victims to call back once the card is purchased
and ask for the number on the back of the card.
The impersonators will then use the number
on the back of the Green Dot money card to
remove the money electronically from the
account.
The public should be aware that no one from
Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office will ever
contact members of the public by telephone to
demand money or any other form of payment
over the telephone.
The investigation is ongoing and
anyone receiving a telephone call from a
person purporting to be a member of the
Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office or other
law enforcement official seeking money
should refuse the demand and report it to the
Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office or the local
police department.

Revolutionary War Era Comes to GMS with a Bang
Alvirne FFA Chapter Elects New Offcers
Excited Fourth Graders Tour
their Future School

On June 10, fourth grade students from Griffin Memorial
School got a little treat: a two-hour tour of Litchfield
Middle School.
Early in the school day, the fourth graders boarded buses
destined for Litchfield’s Middle School. The students were
then seated in the cafeteria and were introduced to the
fifth grade teachers by Principal Lecklider. They were
assigned to a teacher who would lead them on a walk
through LMS.
The purpose, you ask? With culprits such as books and
movies, a fair share of elementary students are worried
about the sudden change. This tour is used as a way for
graduating elementary students to get a layout of LMS.
Students saw the library (ginormous compared to the GMS
one), the Computer lab, the Tech Ed room, the Home Ec
room, the Science room (where everyone enjoyed the
animals), and some of the portables. Along the way, older
students and teachers of older grades waved and chatted.
The experience was pleasant and relieving.
After the walk, students were reseated in the cafeteria
for a question-and-answer session, hosted by Mr. Lecklider.
Returning to their current school, they continued the day
normally feeling much more excited about middle school.

Third graders at Griffin Memorial School got to see and, most
importantly, hear what life was like during the Revolutionary
War recently. Members of Captain Morrill’s Company visited
the school with many examples of items that were crucial to life
during that time. Based on a real Revolutionary War Company
based out of Epsom, N.H., this group of re-enactors shared
information on Medical Techniques, the development of the
U.S. flag during colonial times, hunting and trapping, general
militia practices, and artillery, which included an excitingly loud
demonstration of a small cannon from that era. A student from
each class and several teachers all had a chance to carefully light
the fuse on the unarmed cannon. Sponsored by the GMS PTO, it
was an exciting way to see and hear history up close right there at
their own school.

provoking teachers, encouraged and guided by our counselors, and
supported and loved by our family members,” he said.
While Kalsi used a metaphor to highlight self discovery, Class
Valedictorian Christina Guessferd’s speech focused on enjoying
all the details involved in self discovery and journey through high
school.
“Growing up, kids almost always can’t wait to get to the next
milestone and to feel some sense of autonomy. We would count
down the days until we could get our license, watch an R rated
movie, vote, and then graduate from high school. In the process we
often forgot to embrace those precious moments, those that aren’t
that exciting. We were so busy waiting for the next chapter in our
lives that we fail to appreciate our moms making pancakes in the
morning or our dads teaching us how to throw a football,” Guessferd
said.
She also discussed how very different life is as you grow up from
what you imagined it would be during your childhood.
“As a kid we have this romanticized version of what our life will
be. We imagined that our first love will be like a Disney fairy tale,
that our high school years will be just like Lizzy McGuire’s, and
that we will grow old with our friends from elementary school. You
never thought you’d have to pull an all-nighter to finish in order
to finish a project only to fail the test. And you never thought you
would become strangers or even enemies with someone who was
once your best friend. You never thought you’d have to ice your
arm for hours on end after a demanding pitching session. You never
imagined that you would grow up and have to face the struggle of
coming out or having a baby at 17. And you never thought you’d
have to spend some nights sleeping in your car. But some of these
struggles became indescribable joys. Because you spent all night
studying for that final you aced it and because you spent those hours
on the baseball mound perfecting your knuckle ball you are now on
a fast track to the MLB.”
Salutation Brittney Lambert focused her speech on the choices that
the graduates have made already along this journey so far and the
ones they will make in the future. She didn’t make many choices of
her own being in the house of 10 children. No choices with dinner
or clothing options, which were often a combination of hand me
downs and whatever her mom picked out.
“I can thank my siblings for choosing by default where I sat at the
dinner table and what time I would shower in the morning. I never
had to worry about what time to set my alarm for, because we had a
shower line like you read about,” Lambert said.
She also acknowledged the importance that caring adults
have made in the graduates’ lives as they helped them make key
decisions.
“For the past 18 years of our lives we have made a very limited
number of choices and each one that we have made was scrutinized
by our parents, teachers, school administrators, and really every
adult in our lives. But they did that because they cared about us.
They were standing over our shoulders making sure that we made
the right decisions to keep us on a good path. They wanted what
was best for us. What these adults didn’t realize is that beyond the
gum, the bathroom passes, and what we ate for dinner, they have
made us who we are today,” Lambert said.
She concluded the speech by stating to her classmates that now is
the time for them all to begin taking control of their lives by making
their own decisions that will affect their futures.
All three student speeches were enjoyed by many of the friends
and family sitting in the crowd.
“All three were good speakers. They had unique fashions of
presentations and were confident,” said Derek Raitt, a 2010 Alvirne
graduate, who was present to watch his brother Brenden Raitt
graduate this year.
Alvirne Principal Steven Beals also spoke about family and adults
in the graduates’ lives. He reminded students to thank those who
helped them get to graduation and remember to above all else be
good citizens.
“Please make sure that your family knows they matter before you
transition to your next phase of life,” Beals advised.
Family was a special significance to Beals as he saw his own son,
Ethan Beals, graduate in the class of 2014.
“Thought I expected my emotion to run over with my son, it did
not. He and I remained poised as he was one of 330 graduates, but
my embrace with him was different. I am very proud of the person
he is more than the student he is. We all want well for our kids and
I am no different. I am expecting a nice Father’s Day present from
Ethan. Signing his diploma was the best!” Beals said.
Beals also took time at the end of the commencement to lead the
seniors in one last school spirit chant.
“I’ve been to three graduations for Alvirne High School and this is
the best one,” said Kathy Carpentier, mother of Ashley Carpentier. “I
liked the victory song and the bell that Mr. Beals rang.”
Beals added a personalized touch by walking through the crowd
of graduates and stopping to pose with them for “selfies” (term
commonly used for self taken digital pictures photographed with
electronic devices).
“The graduation was special to me because of my emotional
connection to many of the graduates. Whether through church,
school, or youth sports, I have known many since before their
elementary school days,” he said.
The graduation left many new graduates with overwhelmingly
positive feelings of joy and accomplishment.
“It feels amazing. It’s a unique experience and a feeling you
get only once in a lifetime,” said Mike Infantino, who is going to
Quinnipiac University to major in biomedical science.

encouraged to present a red carnation to someone they loved
and who had supported them.
Class Essayist Jacob Parzych, spoke of his memories being
“snapshots.” “These snapshots will last us forever, the rest of
our lives. You will remember who is in them. These memories
define how we are remembered.
Leah Stagnone’s Salutatory speech encouraged her classmates
to look up to a new beginning.
You “have been given the basic tools. Strive for personal
growth and learning. This ceremony is recognizing the past and
celebrating what is to come. You are not a number. All that
matters is to go forward with passion and self-respect. Create
your own definition of success.”
Student Council President Ryan Perigny titled his speech
“Reflections.” “What is consistent between all is that we are all
products of our small town. Remember your pond, your family,
sister, and community which watched you.” They are the “factors
that created the men and women who cross the stage.”
Michael Boutselis, teacher and class adviser, was the invited
guest speaker for the graduation. “Graduating from high school
is no small feat.” Boutselis commented that his preparation for
the speech afforded him the opportunity to read previous year’s
news clippings, previous speeches, and remember the various
projects that had been completed by the graduating class during
their four years at CHS.
Congratulations Graduates. As you know
graduation signifies the ending of your
scholastic endeavors from either high school
or college. Often when one phase of your life
ends, new insurance needs arise.

“As I sifted through, I
was overcome with pride.”
Boutselis not only spoke of
the athletic accomplishments,
he spoke of many individual
accomplishments. Referring
to “countless charities, finest
colleges, thousands of dollars in
awards, armed services, and no
banner can capture what you
are, what defines you. You are
determined and you strive to
stand out. This class is unique
and diverse.” Boutselis offered
the graduates three words of
advice: Time: cherish it. Life
is defined by what time we are
given. Passion: with passion
there are endless possibilities.
Learn: “challenge yourself to
the best you can be.”
Benjamin Billings’s
Valedictory speech spoke about
each individual’s ability to
“make up our own minds, find
our own truth, and leave our
mark on the world as we want
to. He spoke of his faith and the
spiritual connection between
off of us in this world. “Find
your own truth, define your own
success,” commented Billings.
Superintendent of Schools,
Brian Cochrane, Ph.D.,
commented that “the graduating
classes of 2014 are a great
group of students. They have
a lot of enthusiasm and they
are a very talented class. They
exhibit the values of CHS:
character, courage, respect, and
responsibility in all aspects of
life. I wish them all the best in
their coming years.”

Face your Futures
with Curiosity
Dear Alvirne Seniors,
It is with mixed emotions that I write with excitement to
congratulate you on your graduation, and sadness that I say
goodbye at the same time. You have been and will remain
a special group of students to me. From first arriving back
at AHS, I have enjoyed reconnecting with some, as well as
learning so much about many of you.
I appreciate your efforts and dedication in your academics.
You should all face your futures with a “curiosity” for what lies
ahead. You have demonstrated “commitment” through your
dedicated talents in athletics, music and drama as well as your
spirit to Bronco Nation. While we have faced challenges in
our core value of “character,” Alvirne student know right from
wrong and need to do the right thing. We all can grow and
learn through our mistakes and experiences.
Finally, you are a “community” that values all students.
Your warm embrace of all things “unified” has been refreshing,
and truly demonstrates our community both within and outside
the school. As you face your futures, please do so with strong
feelings for Alvirne High School. I am a Bronco, you are a
Bronco, we are all Broncos!
Best Wishes in all of your future activities,
Steve Beals, Principal

Steve Beals (Alvirne High School principal) spoke at graduation and talked about family and the
importance of them. My family held a graduation party Saturday for a recent grad from Alvirne. We have
10 graduates in the family over a 50-year span. Bottom left: Shannon Miller, missing Elizabeth Paquette
in the military, Katie Paquette, Rebecca Paquette, and Morgan Miller. Top: Steve Paquette, Marie
(Paquette) Miller, missing Ken Paquette, Diane (Paquette) Crotuea, and me, Gary Webster. As you can see

Dennis Hogan to Run for
Hillsborough County Attorney
Former Hillsborough County Attorney Dennis Hogan announced on
June 3 that he is running to return to office.
Hogan first won election to the office of Hillsborough County attorney
in 2010 winning 53 percent of the vote in a three-person contest. He
was nosed out with 49.5 percent in 2012.
Hogan highlighted his successful term as reason for voters to back him.
“I created budgets that spent 8 percent less money than when I arrived
and I increased efficiency by studying then changing the work flow. That
was done while the office handled a record amount of cases.”
Since Hogan left the Hillsborough County Attorney’s office the
incumbent has increased the budget both years.
Hogan has handled criminal defense, bankruptcy and personal injuries
since beginning the private practice of law in 2002. Hogan established
his own firm in 2005.
Nashua elected Hogan as Ward 2 delegate to NH’s17th and last
Constitutional Convention in 1984. He represented Ward 2 in the NH
Legislature after the 1984 election. In a city wide race, Nashua elected
Hogan to the Board of Education in 2005 with more votes than anyone
on the ballot that day. In 2006, Hogan stepped in to prevent “Cop Killer
Advocate” Tom Alciere from becoming the Republican nominee for State Senate District 13 by receiving
89 percent of the vote from a write-in campaign.
Do’s and Don’ts of Fireworks
As the mercury rises, the parties and festivities that
have come to signify summer excite revelers far and
wide. Summer has become the season of pool parties,
trips to the beach, barbecues, and, of course, fireworks.
Love it or hate it, warm weather seems to beckon
neighbors out of hibernation and incites a desire to
set things on fire. When cooking over an open flame
doesn’t satisfy that desire, many take to shooting off
bottle rockers and whistlers. But fireworks can still be
dangerous, and not everyone is equipped or legally al-
lowed to ignite fireworks. Therefore, to avoid potential-
ly dangerous injuries, fines or arrests, it pays to follow
these fireworks dos and don’ts.
DO find out if fireworks are legal in your area. If you
have to travel over state lines or into another country to
purchase fireworks, there is a good chance you are not
allowed to use fireworks in your community. There are
many regulations regarding the sale, transport and use
of fireworks, so be sure you’re not breaking any laws before buying
any fireworks.
DON’T buy fireworks from just anyone. You want to ensure you
are purchasing them from a reputable retailer of legal fireworks.
DO check any safety guidelines and warnings on the wrapper of
the fireworks before lighting them.
DON’T light fireworks near people, trees, homes, or any combus-
tible materials.
DO keep a fire extinguisher or water hose nearby in the event of a
fire. The National Fire Prevention Association notes that the Fourth
of July features more reported
fires than any other day of the
year.
DON’T forget that sparklers
and firecrackers are no safer
than other types of fireworks.
The tip of a sparkler burns at a
temperature of more than 1200
F, which is hot enough to cause
third-degree burns and is hotter
than the temperature it takes to
melt glass.
DO leave fireworks to the pro-
fessionals to avoid injury or fire.
DON’T light more than one
firework at a time.
DO wait 15 to 20 minutes
after lighting a firework to see if
it has ignited. If not, dump the
firework in a bucket of water and
move on to a fresh firework.
DON’T let small children handle and light fire-
works.
DO make every attempt not to store fireworks. If
you purchase them, use them all up. However, a cool,
out-of-the-way place may suffice for a day or so.
DON’T have any part of your body over the fire-
work when lighting it. Try to use a lit stick or butane
lighter to keep as far away as possible.
DO say no to alcoholic beverages when lighting
fireworks. Your perception and dexterity can be com-
promised by alcohol.
DON’T shoot fireworks off in windy conditions.
Otherwise, make sure the prevailing wind is blowing
away from the audience.
DO wear eye protection when lighting fireworks.
DON’T shoot fireworks off of uneven ground. To
ensure stability, always light them on a hard, flat and
level surface.
DO use common sense at all times when in the presence of fire-
works.
DON’T assume pets and children will enjoy the loud noises.
Make accommodations for a quiet respite.
DO make sure spectators keep their distance. They should be 25
to 40 feet away from ground-based items and even further for aerial
products.
Fireworks can be beautiful to watch and often signify special
moments and celebrations. Safety should always be on the minds of
people spending time around fireworks.

Republican State Senator Sharon Carson filed
for re-election today in Concord to represent
Senate District 14, which comprises the towns of
Auburn, Hudson, and Londonderry.
Carson, a three-term state senator, was
instrumental in the passage of legislation that
balanced two state budgets, closed an $800
million deficit not by implementing new taxes and
fees, but by cutting state spending for the first time
since World War II. She also supported legislation
that created a surplus and protected taxpayers by
depositing that surplus into the Rainy Day Fund,

as well as legislation that eliminated a dozen
existing taxes.
Senator Carson was also proud to sponsor
legislation that will begin to solve issues
surrounding post-traumatic stress disorder and
traumatic brain injuries.
After her filing, Sen. Carson said, “It has been
an honor and a privilege to represent the citizens
of Auburn, Hudson, and Londonderry.
I look forward to campaigning across the district,
listening to everyone’s concerns about the State of
New Hampshire and asking them for their support
and their vote.”

The Rodgers Memorial Library hosted New
Hampshire’s WZID radio personality Mike Morin
on June 11, as he
discussed his newly
released book, Fifty
Shades of Radio: True
Stories of a Morning
Guy Being Wired,
Tired and Fired. The
book is a memoir of
his life in radio.
His talk also
unofficially kicked
off his retirement,
as he dubbed it the
“No More Alarm
Clocks” tour and
told the crowd that
he would be making
his retirement
announcement during
the Tuesday, June 17th
New Hampshire in the
Morning Show he co-
hosts with Tracy Caruso.
His last day at WZID
will be Wednesday, June
25. “I’m going to start
another career while I’m
still young enough, and
I wanted to go out on
my terms,” the 63-year-
old Morin said.
Mike Morin grew up
in Detroit and wanted
to work in radio since
the fifth grade. After
working in several other
locations, he arrived in
Boston 30 years ago.
“I was a bad boy ‘rock
jock’ on WCGY, 93.7,
owned by Curt Gowdy,”
Morin said, and shared
some of the more
memorable stories andw
stunts he participated in
while at that station with the library audience.
He may also be remembered for his eight years
as co-host of a local candlepin bowling show on
television. He
has worked at
WZID for the
past 12 years
and, since 2004,
has written a
humor column
for the Nashua
Telegraph.
One hundred
of his favorite
columns are
included in his
book. In 2013,
Morin was
presented with
the Will Rodgers
Humanitarian
Award by the
National Society
of Newspaper
Columnists.
Although he
has interviewed
many celebrities
and politicians,
including
President Barack
Obama, Morin
said his favorite
part of the show is
when listeners call
in and they get to
chat.
“I have a lot
of future projects
in mind,” Morin
said. He plans
to remain in
New Hampshire,
continue to write
and to explore
those project
ideas.

On Sunday, June 15, the Granite State Pro Stock
Series visits one of the oldest tracks that the three-
year-old series races at, Hudson International
Speedway.
This is also a homecoming of sorts for local
driver of the No. 12 MOM’s of Manchester/LCM
Racing Toyota Camry, Derek Griffith.
The 17-year-old Griffith cut his teeth at the
quarter-mile oval by competing in many of the
lower divisions that Hudson had to offer, often
winning, week-in and week-out. All while
preparing Derek to race the Pro Stocks that he
does today.
Derek stated, “I love this place, Hudson is
special to me as I grew up close by, and we really
have great memories here. We came home in
second place the last time the GSPSS raced here; I
wouldn’t mind advancing one more spot.”
So far, in 2014, Griffith sits fourth in the
season points, just 32 points from the leader
(Larry Gelinas). Derek knows how to get around
Hudson as well as, if not better than, most of the
competitors.
“I’ve turned as many laps here as anybody that
will be racing with us this weekend and I think
this gives our Tyngsboro Motors/Maclellan Metal
Finishing Toyota a great chance, going in to this
race; as long as we are able to stay out of trouble,
I am expecting very good things”
The post time for the 2014 Granite State Pro
Stock Gate City Classic 100 is 4 pm.

On June 12 at around 7:05 a.m., the Hudson Police and Fire
departments responded to TRM Inc. at 17 Friars Drive for a report
of possible criminal threatening with biological materials. An
employee had received text messages in the early morning hours,
from a subject stating that there was a biohazard on the desk that the
employee uses. This was repeated again in a second text message
although the text did not say what kind of biohazard was involved.
The employee was evaluated
by the Hudson Fire personnel
and was transported to a hospital
in Nashua as a precaution
to eliminate any biohazard
exposure. Hudson Fire contacted
the Nashua Fire Hazardous
Materials Unit who responded
to the business. The work area
of the employee who received
the texts was evaluated by the
Nashua Fire Hazmat Unit for
any known threats. None were
found. Through tracking the text
messages the person who sent
the texts was identified as James
Weeks, Jr., 28, off Taunton, Mass.
It was discovered that Weeks
is an employee of the company
who worked mainly
in Massachusetts.
The Taunton Police Department made contact with Weeks. It
was determined through this contact that no threat to human life
existed. Due to the alarming nature of this incident, the Hudson
Police are investigating this case as a felony level false public
alarm. The employee and the business were cleared with no found
contaminants. The case remains under investigation by the Hudson
Police and charges may be forthcoming.
Employee Receives Threatening Texts;
Felony Charges Pending

Reform Bill is Signifcant Step toward Improving Care for NH Veterans
submitted by the offices of U.S. Senators Jeanne Shaheen and Kelly
Ayotte
New Hampshire U.S. Senators Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Kelly
Ayotte (R-NH) have successfully included language in a bipartisan
bill to reform the Department of Veterans Affairs and help address a
long-standing inequity in New Hampshire veterans’ access to health
care by expanding their ability to seek care from non-VA providers.
The bipartisan bill, crafted by Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and
Bernie Sanders (I-VT), expands veterans’ access to health care and
makes it easier to fire VA officials for misconduct. On June 16, the
Senate voted overwhelmingly to approve the bill.
“For far too long, New Hampshire veterans have been at an unfair
disadvantage when it comes to accessing health care services, and
this bipartisan bill gives them the choice of receiving care from a
private provider instead of being forced to wait in line or travel hours
to seek VA care,” said Senators Shaheen and Ayotte. “This legislation
is a significant step toward correcting serious inequities in access to
care and making sure New Hampshire veterans get the timely and
quality care they deserve.”
“This legislation is a major step forward in making sure New
Hampshire veterans have the same access to health care services
as those living in other states. New Hampshire has wonderful
local hospitals and this legislation allows veterans to avoid longer
wait times and reduces the long drives for our veterans,” said Peter
Burdett, chair of the State Veterans Advisory Council. “We’re grateful
to Senators Shaheen and Ayotte for their continued outstanding
leadership, standing up for New Hampshire veterans and helping to
ensure they can get the care and services they have earned.”
The legislation would give veterans the option to receive care
from a non-VA provider if the VA cannot provide the requested
appointment within VA wait-time goals or if a veteran lives more
than 40 miles from a VA medical facility. An additional provision
Shaheen and Ayotte worked to include would give veterans the
option of seeking care from a non-VA provider if they reside in a
state without a full-service medical facility, like New Hampshire,
and live more than 20 miles from the nearest full-service VA hospital.
For years, Shaheen and Ayotte have urged the VA to expand access
to health care for veterans living in the North Country, where they
often travel more than 130 miles to access VA facilities in Littleton,
Conway, Manchester, or Boston. Given the region’s mountainous
terrain and hazardous weather, travel time for basic appointments
can exceed two and a half hours each way. Earlier this year,
Shaheen and Ayotte announced the approval of two VA health care
sites for Colebrook and Berlin in the North Country.
The Senate is expected to vote on this legislation in the coming
days.

Best Forecasters must Know
which Computer Models to Believe
by Joseph D’Aleo, CCM
I started weather forecasting in the 1970s for CBS in New York
City for local radio, TV and the network show “Energy” and later
as a college professor at Lyndon State College in Vermont. There I
taught weather and climate analysis and forecasting, and, with my
students, began telephone, radio and ski area forecasting.
We had tools that were very primitive relative to today. Weather
forecasters then depended on pattern recognition and empirical
rules developed over the years. We looked globally and at all
levels of the atmosphere. Computer models were in their infancy,
extending out with surface forecasts just two days. There were no
seven- or even five-day forecasts on television. The third day was
considered an outlook.
I left the college in 1980 to join John Coleman in Chicago where
we produced Good Morning America weather and planned for
The Weather Channel, which we started with the help of many
of my former students in 1982. The early ‘80s saw a technology
revolution to computerized weather data and graphics and real-
time local radars. The Weather Channel started right at that
transition and pioneered new ways of doing both forecasting and
TV weather.
The science greatly advanced the next two decades with the
explosion of satellite delivery of information and graphics and
then the internet and availability of data and global computer
modeling going out to 16 days into the future in detail. These
models are now run multiple times a day and
multiple times in every run (called ensembles)
to give forecasters an idea of the range of
possibilities and degree of confidence in their
outlooks. Model skill has increased in the
first seven to eight days enough so now the
TV meteorologists routinely do a seven-day
forecast.
Even though the tools have improved, the
best forecasters are the ones like my students
and the old timers who understand the basics
and can better determine which computers
to believe and why and how to interpret what
it means for the local area. In my company,
Weatherbell.com, we cover the whole world
for our clients, extending the challenge. We
have to worry about unusual cold and snow
in southern Brazil, frigid air in Europe, a slow
monsoon onset in India, a heat wave in China,
not enough rain in West Africa, as well as a
snowstorm in New England.
To do so, we at Weatherbell.com developed
our own statistical models that combine factors
like El Niño and La Niña, the longer term states
of the oceans (Multidecadal Oscillations in the
Pacific and Atlantic), all the solar variables that affect our weather,
the winds in the tropical and temperatures in the polar high
atmospheres, the magnitude and location of any volcanism, and
patterns of soil moisture and snow cover patterns.
Sometimes, like this past winter, other strong localized
anomalies show up that override all other factors. A very warm
water pool that developed after the super La Niña of 2010-2011
in the Pacific northwest of Hawaii grew as it drifted to the Gulf of
Alaska last summer and fall. After record Alaska snow and cold in
the prior two winters, this warm pool deflected the jet stream north
into Alaska making last winter warmer there. The jet stream then
turned south into Canada and the central United States forming the
“polar vortex,” driving arctic and at times Siberian air south in a
steady stream from November into the spring.
In the end, we have found the warm and cold pools in the ocean
really drive the dominant weather regimes– where it will be cold
or warm, and where storms track and thus where it will be wet
or dry, and in winter, snow will tend to fall. And we see strong
evidence that the sun drives these ocean patterns.
This extreme cold scenario like this past winter happened in the
1976-1979, 1916-1918 periods in both cases, a few years after
strong La Niñas and quiet sun periods like this past winter.
Seeing that evolution, Weatherbell told our clients last summer
that a very cold winter was coming despite the official government
climate center forecast of a warm winter.
Indeed 2013-2014 brought the coldest December to March ever
in Chicago since records began in 1872. It was the third snowiest
there, snowiest ever in Detroit and other spots, and second
snowiest in Philadelphia. The amount of ice on the Great Lakes set
an all time record, well above normal in every week, peaking at 92
percent coverage in March and not disappearing entirely until June
10.
That ocean warm pool will persist at least into next winter and
the El Niño that is coming on will settle near the dateline (called a
Modoki El Niño) as it did in 2002-2003, 2009-2010.
These two factors argue for the cold last year over the central to
shift further east – over us. The El Niño southern storm track will
have California and Texas farmers dancing in the rain. You can
expect another snowy winter on the East Coast where we already
have had 12 major impact snowstorms this decade just four years
in, beating out the old record of 10 in the 1960s and the 2000s.

Climate forecasters whose business success depends on getting
it right will tell you these same natural factors that determine our
seasonal weather patterns can also explain all the past climate
cycles and extremes very nicely.
Joe D’Aleo, a Hudson resident for the last 25 years, co-
founded The Weather Channel and served as its first director of
meteorology back in 1982. With more than 40 years of experience
in professional meteorology, he has served as chief meteorologist
for Weatherbell Analytics since 2011. As a fellow of the American
Meteorologist Society, he has testified about weather and climate
before federal and state legislatures and taken the science lead on
legal briefs to the D.C. circuit and U.S. Supreme courts. Let Joe

submitted by Cub Scout Pack 11
Litchfield’s Cub Scout Pack 11 celebrated a great year of scouting with a fun party last
week. The Scouts were treated to yummy snow cones that they enjoyed while blasting
recycled bottles up in the air. They also played their traditional gaga ball games and even
had a giant tug-of-war. The boys also thanked their den leaders including Mrs. Wilson, Mr.
Kidwell, Mrs. Haley, Mrs. Fay, Mr. Hart, and Mr. Willnus for all that they have done to make
scouting educational and fun. It was a great night celebrating great scouting!

Hudson Softball Senior Division
All Stars Compete
submitted by Charles Huggins
A new neck tie, a can of Turtle Wax,
a bowling ball or a handmade card. All
quality Father’s Day gifts, yes, but a baseball
championship this past Father’s Day
trumped them all, and that is just what the
AAA Orioles from Hudson Youth Baseball
delivered. Getting to the game though
proved tricky for the eventual champs.
On Saturday, the Orioles faced off with
the Lions, and the game was a pitcher’s duel
with the Lions taking a 1-0 lead into the
bottom of the fourth inning. That’s when
Xavier Santana stepped to the plate and,
with one swing of the bat, brought the sold-
out crowd to their feet when he drove a
0-2 fastball over the center field fence. The
Lions went quickly in the top of the fifth,
and in the Orioles’ half of the inning
they broke things open powered by
the game-winning RBI off the bat of
Elizabeth Huggins and a bases-clearing
double from Josh “The Hammer”
MacDonald leading to the 5-1 victory.
The win went to Billy Cloutier on the
mound who was helped with hits from
MacDonald (2), Santana, Huggins, Evan
Beals and Andrew Lisowsky. The. Jake
Dufour led lions with one hit, great
pitching and defense, Mitchell Wong’s
two hits and Tom “T-Squared” Tierney’s
two hits.
In the second game of the day
the Athletics defeated the Red Sox
7-3 setting up the Father’s Day
championship tilt.
Heading into the game it was
obvious that pitching was going to be
key with both teams having played four
games in seven days and all arms being
taxed. “Our pitching has been solid all
season,” said bullpen coach Ethan Beals
“If we played our game and the bats could
come alive I thought we would be ok.”
Come alive they did as the Orioles
banged out 11 hits led by Josh “The
Enforcer” MacDonald’s three hits, Evan
“The Professor” Beals’ two hits, Sam “Net”
Worth’s two hits while Aiden Coreia,
Elizabeth Huggins, Matt Izzo and Dan Pratte
collected a hit each. The biggest hit of the
day belonged to Worth as he laced a bases-
loaded triple to right field which actually
kicked up chalk when it landed on the foul
line, scoring all three base runners and
powering the Orioles to an 11-1 victory and
the much-coveted championship.
The A’s were led by Jimmy Marquis,
Quintin Perillo, John Crawford,
Anthony Santos and Mark Rando.
After the game Orioles Head
Coach Steve Beals said, “ This game
does not define who you are” while
addressing both teams. “The sun
will still rise and you will go to
school tomorrow,” he added. He
was right as both teams played great
all season and should be proud
to be the last two standing. The
Orioles finished the season with a
15-3 record while the A’s came in at
10-7. Thank you for all the support
this season and please support the
traveling All-Stars this summer.

batter, needing only one out to
win. The batter was facing one
ball and two strikes, as Paquin
got instructions from McNulla.
Paquin slung a pitch toward
McNulla, and the batter tried to
check her swing, but was ruled
out to end the game.
After the game, the only two
seniors on the team, McNulla
and Paquin, were very excited.
McNulla said she had not
slept in about a week, having
played in the semi-final game,
two days before and having
graduation ceremonies just the
day before.
McNulla, in
speaking about her
team said, “We play
as a team. We’re not
one player getting
everything done. We
get it done as a team.”
“It’s cool coming in
as the underdog …, “
Emily said, “It felt even
better because a lot of
people didn’t think we
were going to be back
here, and definitely
a lot of people didn’t
think we were going
to win.”
Yet, win they did:

Hudson Rec Lacrosse Works Together
submitted by Hudson Recreation
This past weekend was a busy one for Hudson
Recreation’s lacrosse teams as they participated in
the NHYLA Year End Festival held in Londonderry.
The U11 Maroon Team coached by Tim Cronin
and Assistant Coaches Brian Joyal and Brian
Sullivan joined forces with the U11 White Team
coached by Ada McDowell and Assistant Coach
Jason Downey, to take on the Londonderry team
together.
The two Hudson U11 teams were positioned
in the tournament to play each other and to each
play Londonderry based on their season standings.
The Hudson U11 coaches concluded that because
Hudson was a family they would not force the
kids to play each other and instead work together
as one to end the 2014 season together.
There were some amazing plays that day
including an incredible assist from Dylan Haley
that resulted in Max Thomas scoring. When
Hudson was down 4-1 in the second game,
attackman Bradley Morse scored a goal and
brought the team’s momentum back up. Timmy
Cronin and Bradley Morse worked hard in the
net to stop the Londonderry balls. Midfielders
including Eric Allard, Josh Hoagland, Connor
Peterson, and Dylan Jillson and did a great job
moving up the field and made great shots despite
being stopped by Londonderry. The scorers
included Jared Graham – one, Timmy Cronin -
one, Calvin Durham - two, Bradley Morse - one
and Max Thomas - one. The players made great
efforts that day and put up a fight despite losing to
Londonderry 6-4 in the first game and 4-2 in the
second game.
The teams may have come up a little short
but the coaches were proud of the players and
the development they exhibited in the games.
Merging together as one in the tournament taught
the Hudson Hawks a valuable lesson that day; the
scoreboard does not always show the way you
played the game.

early innings, but the fielding, pitching and hitting were relentless the

Alvirne Baseball’s
Playoff Push Ends
in Loss to Pinkerton
by Marc Ayotte
It was a great season for the Bronco Baseball team which turned a
late season, four-game losing streak into back-to-back wins; closing
out the regular
campaign at 10-8 to
finish as the number 7
seed. In the first two
rounds of the playoffs,
they put together
impressive wins over
Salem and Timberlane,
respectively. But
on June 11, under a
constant drizzle at
Holman Stadium in
Nashua, the Broncos’
hopes of making it to
the title game were
washed away when
they dropped a 4-1
semi-finals decision to
third-seeded Pinkerton.
Alvirne ran into a
flaming-hot Astro on the
mound as Pinkerton ace
Chris Gerossie silenced
the opposition’s bats,
firing a two-hitter and
fanning seven in going the distance. The silver lining on the day for the
stifled Bronco offense came in the top of the third inning when catcher
Greg Emanuelson homered over the left field fence. Emanuelson’s
blast tied the score at one apiece at the time, but it was short-lived.
Pinkerton responded with a run in their half of the third after a
perfectly executed play scored Joe Murphy from second. After Murphy
received a free pass from Alvirne starting and losing pitcher Tyler
Brown, he stole second base. A couple of pitches later he broke for
third, forcing
AHS third
baseman Jacen
Hudson to
cover the bag.
Gerossie then
helped his cause
when he lined a
base hit into left
field through the
vacated spot for
a 2-1 lead. The
Astros would
add another run
in the third on a
double and pair
of sacrifice fly
balls and then a
final insurance
run in the sixth.
Alvirne
pitching was hit
relatively hard
despite giving up
only five hits, as
four of them went
for extra bases
along with several
long, fly ball outs. Tyler Brown went four-plus innings allowing three
earned runs on just four hits, striking out four and walking three. Kyle
McKinley made a relief appearance, recording the final six outs, giving
up two hits and an unearned run. Dan Brown picked up the only other
hit off Gerossie, a sixth inning single to center field. That came just
after Emanuelson almost went “yard” for his second of the day, a deep
fly to left forcing Pinkerton’s Ryan Flammia to make the grab on the
warning track.
AHS Shortstop Matt McKinley puts the fnishing touches on a Pinkerton base
runner trying to get back to second after a Tyler Brown pick-of move.
Alvirne’s Kyle McKinley throws two innings of relief
(0 ER) in the D-I semi-fnals.
