Blue Devils Take the State Title

Thanksgiving
submitted by Deacon David Costello, St. Joseph Church The Catholic Parishes of Mary, Queen of Peace and St. Joseph combined forces this past week to prepare 112 food baskets for area families in need because of the poor economy. Baskets were prepared by members of the Youth Group and individual families from both communities. Families “adopted” families and provided all that was needed for the Thanksgiving meal. The 112 baskets totaled approximately 4,500 pounds of food. Shown in one of the pictures are teens who helped load the baskets when they were picked up on Saturday. They are Shawn Schroth, Kara English, Jenny Courcelle, and Jillian McColgon. The St. Joseph and Mary, Queen of Peace parishes are in the process of “twinning” as the first step in becoming one Catholic Church community in Salem on July 1, 2010.

Submitted by Irene H. Martin As a Salem newspaper, the Community Patriot is proud to announce its support of the Salem Christmas Fund during its 2009 campaign. According to Chairman Alan Phair, since the beginning of the fund over 30 years ago, this 501-3C organization has been the primary provider of help for Salem residents in need during the Holiday Season. In 2007 and 2008 alone, the Salem Christmas Fund helped close to 1,500 people with food baskets, clothing and toys. Just the thought that such an organization exists, shows people that they are not alone in dealing with these hard economic times and that our Community understands and cares! The Christmas Fund works with local guidance counselors, humans service agencies, churches and others to make sure that families, in particular those with the greatest need are cared for. Sometimes just a call from a school to say they have a child without a coat reveals a family in need. Many times the recipients are too shy to come forward for assistance themselves. The fund tries to help by providing outreach services for those people. We all know that economic conditions are tough Phair said and we anticipate the request for help this year to be far greater than ever before. We are proud to say that since its inception. The Salem Christmas Fund, Inc. has never let an eligible family miss Christmas dinner or failed to let a child be remembered at Christmas. Our revenue was down almost 15 percent last year so we need help more than ever if we are to meet this years demands.. Please help us meet our goal. All tax-deductible donations will be gratefully received and acknowledged. Names, pictures and amounts will be published in this paper on a weekly basis. If a donor wishes to remain anonymous, his/her privacy will be honored. Pictures will be taken at 5:30 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall, Main Street on Wednesday, Dec. 2 and Dec. 9. If you know of someone who needs help for Christmas, please inform us by December 1. Last minute emergencies may be handled by contacting Sally Sweet at 898-5676. Any donation is appreciated, but if you wish to adopt a family the cost will be one child for $150; a family with two children, $220; or a family with three children for $290. Remember, your contribution can brighten a child’s Christmas and help parents who are struggling to have Chris Dillon, Salem Recreation Director and Salem Christsomething to give their children. mas fund Board Member accepting a check form Police Contributions can be mailed to: Chief Paul Donovan, Past Grand Knight representing the Salem Christmas Fund Inc. Bishop Peterson Council #4442, Knights of Columbus in P O Box 1234, Salem, NH 03079 Salem. Paul is also a board member of the Christmas Fund.

The staff at Salem Chiropractic Center, P.C. showed their support for our troops by recognizing ‘Red Friday’ — with a special salute to their family and friends serving our country… With the US Army – Sgt.

Letters to our Editor
as the Obama administration recently agreed that $48 billion was spent in the last year on very questionable provider claims, which could be called a matter of fraud. Get it under control! There will be mandates to make every American citizen pay for health insurance; either pay or go to jail. This hardship will ruin families financially without choice (except free for illegals in the country). With increased co-payments and reduction in benefits, millions will experience higher health costs. This will result by not controlling fraud in the health program; all legal Americans (except Congress) lose. Since the government will control lives from the cradle to the grave, it is called socialism with a capital ‘S.’ We could, and should, offer universal health insurance to all with fraud control, tort reform for reduced payments in lawsuits, and more choices to buy insurance across state lines. The question we need to ask our elected officials is one of freedom of choice, or are they going to vote in a socialist system, butting into everyone’s life as the AARP endorsed? As a member, I do not agree with them, as they are putting our freedom second. For the sake of our country, I urge you to contact our U.S. Senators to vote asking to vote no! Or at least insert many of the free enterprise thoughts to improve HB 3962 and keep America a free nation. Edward Brooks - Salem

it a comparative bargain in today’s prohibitively expensive medical world. Furthermore, the idea of women foregoing routine self-exams, which they’ve been schooled to do for over 25 years, a process that takes a minute or two in the shower and obviously does no harm and a lot of good, is patently ludicrous without even consulting doctors or data. Next, this same study group will be telling men that testicular self-exams are a waste of time. The sad, but expected offshoot of this news is that America’s strident anti-Barack Obama Republican conservative wing has already seized on these new suggestions as being examples of what “Obamacare” has in store for all of us down the road, treating this poor advice as a cousin of their “death panels” and “unplug Grandma” micro-scripts. And this is despite Medicare already stating that no changes in mammogram coverage are going to happen, and both the White House as well as Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius immediately refuting the data. “The task force does not set federal policy and they don’t determine what services are covered by the federal government,” says Sebelius. But leave it to Limbaugh and his cronies to use hours of air time in the days following these “conclusions” to intone the horrifying future that American women face from universal health care if it passes, tying a task force’s controversial findings to that same group having the power to impose actual national policies, which is patently “not how it works.” Unfortunately, this report couldn’t have come out at a worse time for the health bill’s passage, as it has already been added to the huge, fraudulent lexicon being employed to unsettle and frighten our citizens, much as the “Party of No” targeted the elderly and Republican voters earlier this year with dire predictions of reduced health benefits after it passes. The GOP and their media have long been masterly in utilizing fear tactics and lies to push their pro-business, anti-humana agendas, and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has played right into their hands. The plain truth is that these researchers have no governing power whatsoever, are in direct conflict with all existing White House/federal guidelines, and can’t force women to forego self-exams or wait until they’re 50 to have their first mammogram. So like millions of other Americans who take vitamins and minerals or go to their trusty chiropractor for monthly “tune-ups,” just continue whatever routine you’ve followed that has brought you this far. And don’t lose any sleep over the latest Saw movie sequel from the right wing. William F. Klessens - Salem

Mitten Drive for Children
Each winter season, many families face the problem of not being able to provide warm clothing for their children, especially mittens. The William T.

The Barron School will be collecting mittens along the Salem Parade route on Sunday, November 29, for children in need.

Freedom or Socialism
We Americans always have enjoyed the right to make our own choices and ”Live Free or Die.” It is the history of New Hampshire and the nation. Many believe we will lose our freedom soon as the U.S. House and Senate approve the HB 3962 Health Reform Bill. I agree this will be a giant step forward to embracing a socialist society, as the health measure will reach everyone and everywhere in American society. Reps. Paul Hodes and Carol Shea-Porter have helped put us closer to socialism by voting for this bill. The bill doesn’t include tort reform for lawsuits, no interstate insurance can be made available, and there is no control over fraud. There should be,

This year, show your holiday feast who’s boss
You’ve decked the halls. Sent out the cards. Now it’s time to plan for the annual family feast that just happens to be at your house this year. The mere thought can send most chief celebration officers (aka holidaystressed moms) into a tizzy. Let’s face it, there has to be a better way to get together around the holidays without spending days planning the menu, grocery shopping and spending endless preparation hours in the kitchen hoping everything turns out perfectly, only to come out of the kitchen just in time to say farewell to loved ones. Guess what? There is. This year, you can look forward to spending time with friends and family without breaking the budget, your holiday spirit or your back. Here are some friendly tips on how to throw a great family feast with less stress, less mess and a lot more fun. It’s easier than you think. Start early, plan ahead and select easyto-prepare foods. Simplify your feast as much as possible. To help, chances are your favorite food Web site has some great options and checklists to help you organize these big events.

sites provide great options for embellishing your main meal with choices that will both surprise and delight your family and friends. And the best part? Instead of chopping all day, all you do is take it from your refrigerator or freezer and pop it into a microwave or oven. Your guests will think you slaved all day to make their favorites - but only you will know the delicious truth. And, of course, dessert. You don’t have to be a gourmet baker to offer your guests a delectable dessert. Scrumptious desserts are also just a click away at www.tenderfilet.com. Carrot cake. Baklava. Tiramisu. Cheesecake. Pecan pie. There is a cornucopia of dessert options ready to serve and enjoy. It would take you hours to replicate these desserts, time better spent in conversations and laughter with family and friends. Simply add coffee, plates and some forks, and this year you’ll be able to be part of the conversation as your guests ooh and ahh over every bite. Consider breaking a few other traditions. Instead of taking out the good china, take a fresh look at disposable plates, tableware and napkins to further minimize time in the kitchen. Add a few candles, some great holiday music and you’ve achieved a family feast with less stress, less mess and fun memories for all (including you) for years to come. - Courtesy of ARAcontent

Saving energy can save holiday hassles
It’s not just a holiday cliche people really do hate untangling last year’s holiday lights, according to a new survey by an independent research firm retained by GE Consumer & Industrial. Untangling lights was the biggest hassle for 56 percent of respondents. Second place was a tie, with 39 percent feeling that hanging lights on the house was a top time drain and another 39 percent saying that stringing lights on the tree is a pain, according to the survey. Nearly a quarter said they plan to decorate using energy-saving LED holiday lights and over half plan to use an artificial tree, making energy-saving decor a possible trend this holiday season. People living in the west will be most likely to decorate with LED lights and people living in the northeast will be less likely to use an artificial tree than are people living in other regions of the United States. Regardless of the region of the

country consumers live in, holiday decorators will be interested in a line of pre-lit trees with low-voltage, cool-burning GE Energy Smart LED holiday lights. Consumers can choose from a variety of realistic needle styles and a wide selection of sizes, bulb styles, bulb colors and price ranges. These LED lights continue to operate even if one is loose or burned out. The company offers replaceable lamps that allow for easy light maintenance. These lights can reduce the use of energy for holiday lighting by 80 percent or more. These trees feature bright, low-voltage lighting with coolburning lamps. These pre-lit LED trees feature a 5-year limited warranty on the lights and tree. The LED lights are rated for a long-lasting 20,000 hour life - that’s quite a few holiday seasons. And what color lights do consumers want? More than two-thirds of the survey respondents prefer to decorate with multi-color lights. Decorating with all white lights was the second favorite. A few more facts the survey “illuminated” include: Females prefer to decorate with white lights whereas males prefer decorating with multi-colored lights. People living in the northeast are significantly more likely to decorate with white lights than people in the Midwest and west.

Enterprise Bank created the Celebration of Excellence to ensure that the unsung heroes of our community receive the honor they so richly deserve. On May 5, 2010, on stage at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium, Lowell, MA, awards will be presented in four different categories to those individuals: Business of the Year Award: Recognizes and honors successful local businesses for their financial achievement, positive workplace environment, and continued community impact. Entrepreneur of the Year Award: Recognizes and celebrates two individuals for their entrepreneurial spirit, vision, innovation, determination, and persistence. Community Service Award: Honors and celebrates a local person or for-profit business organization that has harnessed the power of their assets, resources, and visibility to make a significant, positive impact on their community. Non-Profit Award: Honors and recognizes a non-profit organization whose achievements and accomplishments are a result of successfully meeting or exceeding their mission and goals, making a significant and positive impact on the communities it serves. It all begins with the nominations we receive from you. Everyone has a friend or colleague that has worked hard and persevered, through difficult times, to build a strong business that adds to the wealth of the community. Oftentimes, the only recognition they receive is the good feeling that comes with having created something special.

The deadline for nominations is January 7, 2010. If you have any questions, contact Alison Burns at 978-656-5672, or e-mail COE@EBTC.com.

“Kn w Y ur Car”
(NewsUSA) People today are keeping their cars longer, a trend that is putting automobile owners better in tune with their car maintenance needs. Add to that the added annual miles from a decline in airplane travel, and vehicle upkeep becomes paramount for safety, reliability and enjoyment. Best practices for car care are surprisingly easy, says one expert. “Car maintenance shouldn’t be intimidating,” said Lauren Fix, SAE-certified mechanic and author of Lauren Fix’s Guide to Loving Your Car. “Many of the simple tips our parents told us still hold true—get regular tune-ups, keep your tires inflated correctly, change your filters.” Fix says what has changed, though, is the interval at which ������������ you need to change those filters. “Check your car owner’s manual.

technologies and high-performance oils can extend the time between oil changes,” she said. Another change in car maintenance is the number of filters your technician should check. Fuel filters, when left dirty, can lead to decreased fuel mileage and other problems in the fuel system. Also, make sure your technician checks both your engine and cabin air filters, which help your engine and HVAC systems work at peak performance, says filtration expert Paul Bandoly. “Many people don’t realize that the majority of cars manufactured since 2000 have a cabin air filter, whose job is two-fold,” said Bandoly, manager of technical services at WIX Filters. “Not only do cabin air filters clean the air before it enters the vehicle’s HVAC system, protecting vital system �������������������� components �������������������� from ������������ damage, but ������������������� they also

filter the air breathed by occupants in the vehicle, making car travel more enjoyable.” Prior to packing up the car for the vacation drive, tend to filtration needs, check your tire air pressure and top off the engine’s fluids. But don’t put off car maintenance until the last minute. “Taking your car to your regular shop for maintenance visits allows technicians to monitor your vehicle’s condition, and provides them with the opportunity to identify symptoms of distress before costly repairs become necessary,” said Fix.

Thumbs Up? mbs Up? Thumbs Down?
Comments expressed in this column are the sole views of those callers and do not reflect the views of the Pelham~Windham News or its advertisers. The Pelham~Windham News Thumbs column should not be used to hurt or defame an individual or business. Town and school officials encourage readers to seek out assistance directly to resolve any problems or issues. The Pelham~Windham News editorial staff holds the right to refuse any comment deemed inappropriate. “Thumbs down to the Salem Senior Center for not advising residents that the Health Fair had been cancelled either by newspaper or on Salem Community TV. Also on a recent bus trip, half-way home the group leader asked if we had forgotten anyone - should have been a count at the beginning and before we left to make sure. Lately, information has been lacking with ‘I don’t know’ as answers. It was not always like this as our Center received high standards - get back on track.” “Thumbs down to Rockingham Park maintenance, that place looks like the town dump!” any time of the day. Him and his Wife Darlene are the most rude people I have ever met in my life and I don’t know how they sleep at night knowing that over 80 brides don’t have anything but empty frames of their wedding day to show to family. This story has been on many news stations and I think The Perotta’s need to come out of hiding and just give everyone what they want… their pictures. Really what good is a bunch of pictures of peoples’ weddings to them???” “Thumbs down to Sarah Palin for appearing anti-gracious on the Oprah show. If she wants to be a true conservative she has to learn that you fight your enemies not be gracious. She should have given Oprah the Italian salute instead of the interview.” ���������������������������������������������������

Linehan Landscaping Donates Newly Landscaped Entryway at SHS
by Jay Hobson Linehan Landscaping is a locally owned and operated landscaping business that recently donated their time, talents, and materials to a project that added beauty and function to the entryway of Salem High School. “The kids would come out of the doors at the end of a school day to catch a bus and would cut across the grass at an angle so much that the grass was gone and it was nothing but mud. So when we were approached by Tracy Foote, whose daughter attends the high school, about possibly doing something, we took on the challenge,” Larry Linehan, Sr. said. Larry’s son, Larry Jr., was a 1999 graduate of SHS and knew the condition of the entryway and how it had deteriorated over the years. “My class had donated a plaque, which was placed at the entrance and it was just surrounded by worn-down grass and dirt from kids cutting through, so we made a patio area out of brick and placed plantings around it to make it look better and so that people cutting through wouldn’t be tearing up the grass,” Larry Jr. said. Bill Hagan, principal of the high school, gratefully acknowledged the efforts of the Linehans, Foote, and other volunteers at the high school. “If we didn’t have the volunteers that put in the time and effort that they do for the school, a lot of what is needed couldn’t be done,” Hagan said. would have to look at other ideas. We would eventually have to do something because when bumper height restrictions came along, the trucks we were building that had four-foot tall tires and lift packages that raised them as high as they did would essentially put us out of business, and it did,” Linehan, Sr. said. So Linehan Limousine service was born. “My wife and I had used limousine services to go to various functions and events, and we had a real positive experience with a limousine company that had immaculate cars and a driver that was well groomed and looked really professional. Eventually, that business stopped and when we saw the condition of the vehicles and drivers that came on the scene, we knew there was room for a limousine service that went the extra mile,” Linehan, Sr. said. Eventually Linehan, Sr. sold the limousine business and devoted his time and energy to his passion for gardening and landscaping. “We did a little landscaping on the side while we were doing the limousine business, and when it was time for a change, I went fulltime into landscaping,” Larry Sr. said.

Right side of the entryway to SHS Now, teamed with his son, the Linehans have worked so closely that when Larry Sr. tells clients what and when things will be done, Larry Jr. makes it happen exactly as discussed by his father. “It’s amazing, I can go to a client and tell them that what they want will happen and be done a certain way and when Larry (Jr.) is working with the crew, they can almost watch and go down the checklist I give them and see what’s being done and what will happen next. When it’s all done, Larry (Jr.) and his crew have it exactly the way I promised the client,” Linehan, Sr. said. Judging by the results at the high school, beautifully done as well.

Left side of newly landscaped SHS entryway The Linehans haven’t always been landscapers on a full-time basis. Larry Sr. was introduced to gardening by working for his aunt in her award-winning rose garden in Methuen at the age of 14, and it has been part of his life ever since, though not as a business in the beginning. Linehan, Sr. owned and operated a Michelin tire business and outfitted raised trucks at a time before bumper height restrictions came into effect. When that happened and other businesses got into the tire business, Linehan, Sr. recognized that it was time for a change. “We were at a point when other places, like KMart and the franchise tire companies, were coming into the area that we

Blue Devil Setter Barnes Earns NHIAA Student-Athlete of the Month
by Chris White Chris Barnes, the setter for the state champion Salem volleyball team, was recently recognized as the NHIAA Male Student-Athlete of the Month for October. The senior was a three-year starter for the Blue Devils and led his team to 57 consecutive victories. He averaged 31 assists per match and recorded five digs, three kills, and 12 service points per set. The team captain also handed out 53 assists in the state final against Timberlane at Pinkerton Academy this year. Barnes is a well-rounded individual who was also featured on “Hometown Heroes” for WMUR Channel 9 in Manchester. In the classroom, he sports a 4.0 GPA and is an editor for the Salem High School newspaper, The Blue Ink. He is also a peer tutor and student council member. His leadership abilities are noticeable on and off the court. On the court, he encourages and supports his teammates. “I always make sure everyone keeps their head up,” he said. “You can’t win every point in volleyball, so you move on to the next play and concentrate on doing a good job.” Salem coach E.J. Perry said Barnes has been a vital part of the team, especially running the offense. When he plays, he always respects his teammates, opponents, and officials. “Chris was the leader of our offense this season,” Perry said. “He has also demonstrated sportsmanship throughout his career and is an outstanding role model.” Barnes said he hopes to attend Vassar College next year, where he will also like to continue his volleyball career. He is also considering Boston College, Boston University, Northeastern University, and Emmanuel College.

NHIAA Student-Athlete of the Month, Chris Barnes, captained the Blue Devils this season and led the team to its sixth state title in as many seasons
