Although her profession certainly sounds
glamorous, PGA Professional Joanne Flynn
says her own golf game has often taken a back
seat over the years. Instead of swinging a club,
you typically will find her organizing corporate
golf outings and charity events, teaching golf
clinics, or doing volunteer work throughout the
community. Despite not much “free time” to
speak of, Joanne would not have it any other way
as she loves what she does.

Concern over two aging public safety buildings in town prompted
selectmen to look for a replacement option, and that will be to
combine the two.
Selectman James Keller presented a study conducted over the last
year where a small committee sought different plans to replace the
police and central fire stations, and their solution was a public safety
complex.
Keller said the committee was charged with the idea by Chairman
Patrick Hargreaves, to look at the viability of combining the two
buildings.
Keller said the new facility would eliminate the current central
station property, and allow the town to stop using the old north
station for storage as well.
He said both buildings were nearing 50 years old and the north
station was over 100.
Keller said the current central station had insufficient parking,
poor storage, and was not compliant with life safety and fire codes
among other problems.
The police station was eroding, he said, noting HVAC, plumbing,
and life safety improvements were needed.
In total, capital improvements could cost over $1 million for the
two buildings.
The proposed complex would be on the current location of the
police station, reducing costs by using a property the town currently
owns.
He said a shared building would also reduce dispatch costs and
allow common areas to be shared.
“We’ve done some pretty significant site reviews,” Keller said
about the location, noting they were working to keep the facility in
the central district.

To someone growing up below
the New Hampshire state border,
a boat ride on the Merrimack
River may seem less than
pleasing, but 10 years of work
by a volunteer organization has
transformed the water body into
an oasis.
The Clean River Project, run
by a Salem resident seeking to
clean the banks and clear the
riverbed of debris, has removed
large amounts of waste from the
Merrimack River, which also
serves as the water supply to
multiple border communities.
Rocky Morrison, president of
the Clean River Project, operates
a five-boat fleet, docked in
Methuen, Mass., on the river,
and took New Hampshire Senate
President Chuck Morse (R-Salem)
for a tour of their efforts.
A volunteer crew used a
variety of equipment to pull
tires, propane tanks and multiple
cars from the river, but work still
remains to be done.
Taking a tour along the river,
Morrison pointed out locations
where cars had recently been
found, just a few thousand feet
upstream from public water
River Warriors Seeking to Clean Local Waterways
supplies. He said 28 cars remained in the stretch
of river and that his crew can extract up to three
cars in a day.
“There are all these cars right here in front of the
intake pump,” he said pointing out the location to
Morse.
Nets placed toward the river banks collect
smaller floating debris coming down the river and
(Front to back) Board members Nanci Carney, Jean Marion, and President Rocky Morrison of the Clean River Project
stand on a 30-foot barge with logging arm on the banks of the Merrimack River in Methuen.
Te organization hopes to begin work in New Hampshire soon.

It was a sweet taste of Italy outside
Salem’s Tuscan Kitchen and Market on
Sunday, August 17 for the large crowd of
car enthusiasts who took in the array of
luxury vehicles on display at the Tuscan
Village Second Annual Italian Car Show.
With the backdrop of a working
fountain and a pergola with its classic
columns, onlookers walked along
the cobblestone piazza taking in the
large selection of European luxury
cars and motorcycles. This was a great
opportunity for passionate car enthusiasts
to come together and talk about the
many motor vehicles that, for the most,
dreams are made.
From the beauty of world-known
brands such as Ferrari, Lamborghini,
Porsche, McLaren, and Maserti to the
European Luxury Cars
Take the Stage Outside Tuscan Marketplace
racing vehicle of Tuscan Brands’
owner, Joe Farro, all were on display
at the show. There was something
for everyone to see, including two
miniature race cars for the kids.
Farro mingled through the crowd of
enthusiasts sharing their excitement
for the many classic vehicles. At
one time Farro helped guide in a
Lamborghini that quickly attracted a
large group of admirers.
Along with the vehicles, food,
drink, and live music added to the
party atmosphere.
Judging by the obvious enjoyment
of those in attendance, if you missed
this year’s event, you won’t want to
miss it next year.

Salem High Marching Band members all
survived an intense two-week, eight-hour-a-day
band camp to learn the dance steps and musical
numbers for their halftime performances at Blue
Devils’ football games and other competitions
throughout the season.
Each day during the second week of camp,
members of the band dressed up according
to different themes. Tuesday was ‘Twin Day,’
Wednesday was ‘Tie Dye Day,’ Thursday ‘Red,
White & Blue Day’ and on Friday, each section of
the band dressed in its own unique T-shirt. Every
section was identified by a certain color, and the
students decorated them to match one another.
At the conclusion of band camp on Friday
afternoon the Parents’ Music Club provided the
band with a traditional ice cream social, where
the students made their own ice cream sundaes.
On Friday evening the band members
performed for their parents and ran through the
program they had been learning over the previous
two weeks. Thanks to the students’ multi-colored
sectional shirts, the parents could find their own
musician in the group. It’s a lot harder to see
them during the football games & competitions
because they travel all over the field. And it’s so
difficult to pick out each person when everyone is
dressed in their band uniforms and hats.
As a conclusion to this show, the band played
its own version of musical chairs called a “March
Off.” As the marching band performed its final
numbers, staff members went along and caught
each minor fault that a band member made. As
each performer was caught making a mistake that
performer had to sit down on the field.
The last band member standing got to throw a
cream pie into the face of Band Director Marty
Claussen.
Winners of this year’s march off were Alyssa
Monroe, a member of the contra section, and
EmilyAnn Nault, the captain of the color guard.
The first opportunity
for the public to see
the marching band in
action will be at the Blue
Devils’ football home
opener against Nashua South at 7 p.m., September
5 at Salem High School’s Grant Stadium.
Blue Devils March Ahead Toward Melodious Football Season
Candidates Forum
by S. Aaron Shamshoyan
With political signs popping up on the sides of many streets,
summer nears a close and election season begins with the
approaching primary.
Two highly contested races include the Rockingham County
attorney and U.S. House of Representatives.
A candidate forum at Salem Community Television offered
a chance for opponents to share their beliefs and plans for the
respective offices.
Replacing long-standing County Attorney Jim Reams, who
retired earlier this year amid a scandal, four Republican
candidates and one Democrat, will battle it out for the position.
The Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce Political Affairs
Committee, the sponsor of the event, invited the contested
Republican candidates to speak.
Up first, Salem Police Prosecutor Jason Grosky said his work in
the field and activities of interest prepared him for the position.
When not at the department prosecuting cases, Grosky is
serving on local boards and volunteering in the community.
“I lead a team every day,” he said, as a football coach for a
seventh grade team.
Grosky noted the charges brought against former County
Attorney Reams, saying opponents connected to the office could
bring conflicts of interest.
“I don’t have any biases,” he said. “I think
transparency is so important.”
As county attorney, Grosky said it was important to be
involved in the community and accessible to residents.
“I want to be out there putting good focus back on the
office,” he said, adding it was important to publicize the
positive things the office has done.
Grosky said it was important to run the office
efficiently, noting district courts have seen a decline in
time when a judge is available.
“We’re fortunate to have a judge nine hours a week,”
he said about Salem District Court. Grosky said
previously there was a judge there daily.
Assistant Hillsborough Attorney Michael Zaino said
his background as a state and federal prosecuting
attorney provided the necessary experience for the
position.
“I train prosecutors, I train attorneys, I train police
officers,” he said about his experience, adding it is
important to go into the office experienced.
“I’ve seen many different perspectives on how to lead
a county attorney’s office,” he said. “Our citizens need
to feel secure and need to feel safe.”
Zaino said it would be important to improve morale in
the office after the accusations against Reams. He said
half of the office’s staff had left over the past three years.
Zaino said he supported e-court systems reducing the
burden on staff members and hoped to make the office
paperless.
Assistant Rockingham County Attorney Patricia
Conway is also vying for the seat, saying her experience
in the office will set her up for success.
Conway says she manages large caseloads and is the
liaison between the office and 20 police departments.
As an assistant prosecutor, Conway processed
felonious level cases, something she says most of her
opponents don’t do.
“Police prosecutors handle misdemeanors and
violations,” she said about her challengers. “It’s a
completely different level,” she said about felonies.
“I prosecute drug-related defenses,” she said among
other serious charges. “My experience is much more
diverse.”
She said the charges surrounding Reams were nothing
more than a media frenzy, and he was never prosecuted.
“Mr. Reams was never charged, he was never
convicted, he was reinstated and retired,” she said. “I
have done absolutely nothing wrong.”
Conway said she is an advocate for video
arraignments and mental health courts along with pre-
trial programs. “These would save you, the taxpayer,
money,” she said.
Police Prosecutor Michael DiCroce said the
county attorney needs three skills: management,
jury trial specialist, and a relationship with the police
departments.
“On these three issues, I feel I am the most qualified
candidate for the position,” he said.
A prosecutor for 23 years, DiCroce said he had more
experience than his opponents.
“I will have more experience than anybody else
working in the office the day I show up,” he said.
DiCroce started his own prosecution firm where he
contracts his services out to police departments. He said
this experience taught leadership and budgetary skills.
It also made him familiar with all the Rockingham
County police departments, he said, and that he knew
what problems they faced.
Candidate Joe Plaia is running on the Democratic
ticket for the office but was not invited to the evening, as
he is uncontested.
Candidates to the U.S. House of Representatives were

On average, 60 percent of eligible American voters elect 536
citizens, including the president, to run our nation. Forty percent
don’t bother to vote. These elected officials should be doing what’s
best for the nation and its citizens before considering the welfare
of illegal immigrants and foreign nations. It has been reported that
there are 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S.
To be blunt, our government has sold out those that elected them
to office.
Examples: What about the homeless? On any given night we
have over 610,000 abandoned citizens of which approximately nine
percent are veterans.
What about the unemployed? The Bureau of Labor Statistics
July report stated unemployment was at 6.2 percent or 9.7 million
people. Not bad, right? Wrong! The CBS Washington Report
indicated more than 92 million Americans remain out of the labor
force. The Bureau of Labor Statistics does not count people not
looking for work as unemployed. Many have been out of work for
years, unable to find new jobs or are working part time.
There are 6.8 million more Americans on welfare than working
full time based on statistics of government means-tested programs.
These programs do not include Social Security, unemployment
insurance, workers compensation or veteran’s benefits. These
means-tested benefit programs are the second largest category of
government spending, more than public education and defense
programs. Did you know that in 35 states welfare pays more than an
actual job? Dependence on food stamps has nearly doubled since
Obama took office.
Why isn’t the government doing something to eliminate fraud
and poor management that is suffocating many of its programs?
This is an especially serious problem among all of our health and
welfare programs. Health and Human Services has reported that
approximately 2.6 million out of 5.4 million federal
market place health insurance applicants have not
had their income or immigration status verified.
The number of people collecting permanent
disability has increased by 20 percent since Obama
took office. Why aren’t our representatives in
Washington demanding to know why 8.9 million
people are collecting disability? This fund will be
bankrupt by 2016.
The Boomer Generation and those to follow
cannot expect to enjoy the American Dream that
America’s Greatest Generation experienced, such
as having a better life in retirement. Also Social Security Benefits
probably won’t be there.
As of June 30 our national debt was $17.6 trillion. We owe Japan
and China $1.1 trillion each. Why aren’t our elected officials doing
what needs to be done to reduce debt? Instead, Obama wants $3.7
billion to ‘resolve’ the illegal immigration problem. Why not reduce
our foreign and military aid to cover this, especially from the three
Central American nations that caused this problem.
Why haven’t they done more for the American Indians? Many live
in poverty, experience high unemployment, have poor health and
suffer from alcoholism. Talk about neglect, dating back to the days
of the Wild West.
These are just a few examples. I could go on and on.
I mentioned Obama because he is the leader of this
nation. He has done nothing to bring this country together,
has done nothing to foster bipartisanship. Few of the 535
representatives care about doing what is best for the nation
and the individual American voter who put them in their
position. Those that do are overwhelmingly outnumbered.
John F. Kennedy said, “The basis of effective government
is public confidence.” Obama’s administration does not
have that. What can be done to make the health and
welfare of American citizens a priority? Does anyone have
the answer to that question?

Getting Big Money out of Politics
Ever wonder why it’s so hard for Democrats and
Republicans to work together for the common good?
Tanks to recent Supreme Court decisions, political
campaign spending is considered a form of free speech;
therefore, it can’t be limited by law. Furthermore,
corporations and unions are considered to have the
same rights as people, so they too can make unlimited
campaign contributions. Once elected, their loyalty is
to their big contributors, thus they can’t work with the
other party.
Te answer is a Constitutional amendment that
denies corporations and unions person-hood and allows
campaign spending to be regulated. Tat’s why over
54 out of 61 NH communities passed warrant articles
that called for the state legislatures to vote for such an
amendment. Tis is a bipartisan efort among voters
as the resolutions in most communities passed with
overwhelming majorities. Ten our state senate voted
on a bill favoring such a Constitutional amendment.
Evidently this is a partisan issue among elected ofcials
as it failed on a 12-12 vote with every Democrat and
only one Republican senator voting for it. Elected
Republicans must believe there are more Republican
billionaires than Democratic ones, that more
corporations support their party, and that the unions
don’t have the infuence they used to. In other words,
they really don’t care about the demise of democracy
and the corrupting infuence of special interest money
as long as it gets Republicans elected.
Despite Salem voting two to one for such an
amendment, our senator voted against it. He is running
for re-election unopposed, but you can show your
disapproval by not voting for him. Te state senate will
have another opportunity to do the right thing; let’s get
him on board. If you are intending to vote Republican,
you might want to ask your candidates where they stand
on this issue.
If they won’t support a Constitutional amendment to
get big money out of politics, you might also want to
reconsider your vote.
Scott Abercrombie, Salem
Dispelling Market Basket Myths
I felt the need to write this opinion, because I have
seen quite a few Sound Ofs in a local daily paper, and
on-line posts, decrying the situation at Market Basket. I
do not work directly for Market Basket, but I do work
with them.
Te frst issue is that people think that the store
employees have walked out. Tis is 100 percent
false. Te supervisors and top management “great 8”
walked out to protest, in support of Artie T. After
these gentlemen were fred for doing so, the warehouse
workers, drivers, and ofce staf walked out as well, in
support of their bosses, as well as Artie T.
Tat was over 500 people, and it was fve weeks ago.
Not one store-level employee has walked out. Tey
showed up to work every day, and those who were not
working at the time were out protesting and holding
signs in support.
After roughly a week of this, the stores became quite
empty of perishable items, due to there not being
anyone to buy the products for the warehouse, ship it
out, or deliver it. Once the customers, who are very
loyal to Market Basket, found out the reasons why
the supervisors and warehouse workers walked out or
were terminated, they too decided to boycott Market
Basket. Customers are not stupid, as the press will
lead you to believe. Tey understand that under Artie
T’s leadership, they have shopped the stores, knowing
they were getting “More for your Dollar.” Tey got
clean stores, terrifc specials, great prices on all foods,
and fantastic customer service. Tey knew that Market
Basket was a family, and they feel that they are part of
the family.
Media outlets have portrayed this unprecedented
boycott as only store employees wanting their bosses
back. Tis is not true. Although wanting Artie T
back as CEO is a big part of it, they also know that the
current situation of new CEO’s and a board of directors
do not have theirs, or the customers’ best interest in
mind. Artie T wants to keep this company as a local
family business, where a little less proft is made, but
associates are given more as incentive to stay and grow
with them. Tis company has thousands of associates
who have worked there for 20, 30, or 40 years! Tat
doesn’t happen very much in this day and age. It
is testament to how well they are treated, and their
appreciation for their jobs and family.
So saying that the store workers need to “get back to
work” is insulting. Tey have been working all along.
But this latest last gasp from the current CEO’s to cut
the workforce hours due to no sales, has resulted in
all part-time employees to be laid of. Tey can call it
a reduction in hours, but it is, in fact, a layof. Tese
19,000-plus associates are now out of work, yet they
still hold signs, go to rallies, and support their other
associates in getting this company back to the way it
was before. Tey want to work, and they want to work
at Market Basket.
In closing, I will say that as soon as the lawyers and
the owners fgure this out, and Market Basket is sold to
Artie T DeMoulas, in a matter of days and weeks, the
stores will be re-stafed with all those who were laid of,
the shelves will once again be full, and the customers
will come streaming back in droves to buy their
groceries at the best prices, by the best associates and
vendors, in the business.
Te eyes of the country are upon you, and what you
are doing is inspiring and incredible. Stay strong!
David Coombs, Salem
Te Last Ting the Voters
of NH should do
While driving on Route 28 in Salem, NH recently I
saw a political sign for Marilinda Garcia for Congress.
Marilinda Garcia? Isn’t she one of the notorious trio
including her sister, Bianca Garcia and Patrick Bick,
who thumbed their noses at the Salem voters a few
years ago? In a special election to authorize a casino at
Rockingham Park the Salem residents voted 80 percent
in favor of a casino. But the Garcia sisters and Rep.
Bick didn’t follow their constituents’ wishes. Tey were
the only Salem state representatives to vote against
the casino. I guess they felt their ideology was more
important than that of the voters who sent them to
Concord. Obviously, Ms. Garcia feels she deserves a
raise for her work as a state representative and wants
to be sent to Washington, DC, to be a member of our
current dysfunctional Congress. Te last thing the
voters of New Hampshire should do is send a Tea Party
Conservative Extremist to an already dysfunctional,
obstructionist Congress. Voters should remember
who these three people are and not vote for them to
represent them again, ever!
Jerome S. DiMauro, Salem
Disappointed in Article
on Area Beaches
I was extremely disappointed by the article on area
beaches by reporter Bob Gibbs. Te Shadow Lake
Association purchased the small lakeside lot we use for

Annie Kuster - Keep this
Jobmaker in Congress
“In order for our kids to secure the jobs of tomorrow,
we must train them today.”
2nd Congressional district Congresswoman Annie
Kuster’s words of two years ago still ring true today,
demonstrated by one of her signature achievements of
her frst term, the Workplace Development Investment
Act. Tis landmark legislation provides employers up to
$10,000 annually in tax credits when they collaborate
with local colleges to develop real-world classes in their
curriculum, leading to students being ready-trained
upon graduation to enter the workforce with immediate
employable skills in their chosen felds. Tis defnitely
beats a budding engineer or computer systems analyst
taking another unneeded and irrelevant elective course,
and has led to more and more New Hampshire college
graduates entering the workforce as burgeoning
professionals in their lifework occupations, instead of
starting their careers toiling in cofee shop and fast food
stopgap positions.
Due to this legislation, along with the plethora of
statewide job fairs organized by Kuster, New Hampshire
has witnessed a tremendous rebound in the past one
and a half years from the disastrous prior Bill O’Brien/
Tea Party-led morass of rampant job loss and university
fund cuts. Tis has led to the current 4.4 percent
unemployment rate in our state, down from the highs
of 5.8 percent in 2011-2012, before the November
2012 elections when our citizens voted most of the
regressives out.
Another Kuster-sponsored bill that has been a huge
assistance to our veteran population is the Veterans
Claims Trough Automation Act, introduced in
April 2013 and signed into law by president Barack
Obama in August of that year. Veteran’s claims are
now processed faster, the ongoing backlog of paper
cases has been eradicated, and information on family
and healthcare programs as well as job opportunities is
disseminated online in a far more timely manner for

both older vets and those returning from duty.
A quick check of congress.gov under Annie Kuster’s name shows the
length and breadth of her other citizen and family-friendly legislative aims,
some pending and some already federal law. Her sponsored bills include
the Campus Accountability and Safety Act, six diferent human and child
sex trafcking measures, a statute to amend the US Constitution to end the
unfettered corporate spending that the Supreme Court’s disastrous citizens
united decision allows, the Social Security Caregiver Act of 2014, the Protect
American Jobs and Exports Act ... the list goes on and on.
Contrast the aims of these passed and pending bills in Kuster’s name with
the Tea Party legislation that crippled our state during that aforementioned
two-year travesty that saw both students and businesses leave the Granite
State in droves, hospital closings and relaxed gun laws, when only the veto
pen of then-governor John Lynch prevented even more carnage from taking
place.
Annie Kuster was an adoption attorney for a quarter century before
entering the political arena as a lobbyist, also specializing in healthcare,
veterans, nonproft and education legal issues. Her sponsored legislation
during her current congressional term has incorporated all of her experiences
over those years, and belies all of the Koch Brothers-funded media
misrepresentations that we’re all seeing and hearing during this election cycle
which will only intensify after her general election Republican opponent
(Gary Lambert or Marilinda Garcia) is selected in September. Take a good
look at all of the middle-class enhancements that she has both passed or
is currently working on in 18 short months. And let’s all make sure in
November that, following all the many Tea Party candidates’ state primary
defeats across America in the past few weeks as their short and destructive
ascension to power is hopefully coming to an end, that we follow suit and
keep Annie Kuster in Washington working for us.

Te Dueling Arthurs:
A Contrast in Business Models
Te current Market Basket War that is dominating the news in the
Merrimack Valley comes down to a philosophical diference of opinion on the
best business model for the company. Te Arthur S (classic American model)
or the Arthur T model.
First, the classic American business model, under this model employees
are primarily an overhead expense which cuts into profts and dividends for
stockholders. Te remedies are usually paying the minimum salary whenever
feasible, minimal health and dental coverage, as well as minimal sick and
vacation time. Pensions and proft sharing are out of the question.
Tis approach works very well for stockholders who are focused on the
bottom line.
It also creates a disinterested workforce that feel that their personal
wellbeing is not connected to the success of the company. Another
consequence of the classic business model is the growing income inequality
which is pushing more Americans down and out of a middle class standard
of living. Te primacy of stockholder dividends over employee needs is
not considered worthy of discussion. Arthur S is very upset that he cannot
put this model into practice due to his cousin’s handling of day-to-day
operations.
Te Arthur T model is dramatically diferent. Without the beneft
of a union, employees have competitive salaries, excellent health plans,
bonuses, and proft sharing. In return, Arthur T has created a loyal and
conscientious workforce that tends to customer needs both in terms of food
quality and low prices. Employees take pride in the success of the company.
Under the Arthur T model, employees are seen as assets to the company
and necessary for success, corporate profts and dividends are disbursed after
employee needs are met.
Arthur T has created a $3 billion corporation with
71 stores and 25,000 employees.
Market Basket is far and away the most successful
grocery chain in New England.
Employee loyalty is only matched by customers
who have stayed away in droves also waiting for
Arthur T’s return. Arthur T ‘s business acumen has
created this very successful company and Arthur S
wants to dismantle it, put the money in his wallet and
walk away.
Tere are benefts to the community as well.
Lifetime workers at Market Basket of which there
are so many have been able to enjoy a middle class
standard of living with the ability to purchase homes,
send their children to college, and be productive
members of their community. If all companies
employed the Arthur T model we would have fewer
demands on governmental safety nets.
A fnal thought:
I am unimpressed by community leaders who say
that Arthur T and Arthur S have a responsibility to
work this out together. Tinking back to my favorite
TV series of the 1950s (Te Lone Ranger); when the
Lone Ranger and Tonto rode into town in pursuit of
the guy with the black hat, I never heard the Sherif
say “please compromise, work this out together.” No,
the guy in the black hat always left town tied up on
his way to jail. Do I have to say which Arthur wears
the black hat?

Selectmen Question the Future of CART
by S. Aaron Shamshoyan
Service reductions or elimination of a local
senior transport service may be necessary,
according to selectmen, if ridership doesn’t
increase in the future.
Three transportation services being offered
by the Cooperative Alliance for Regional
Transportation are being underutilized according
to the board, leaving selectmen to decide if the
services are worth the $47,000 annually.
CART provides transportation services in
the five towns of Londonderry, Derry, Chester,
Hampstead, and Salem, and will take riders to
some additional towns.
Executive Director Annette Stoller explained the
three types of transportation CART provides.
First, a demand response service allows riders
to schedule rides, being picked up from one
destination and taken to another.
“Trips are basically curb-to-curb trips,”
Stoller said, adding riders could be brought
to destinations within the five towns and six
destinations outside of the standard service area.
The Salem Shopper Shuttle takes riders to
medical and retail destinations within town.
“It connects major destinations with some
deviations if required,” Stoller said. There is no
cost for the shuttle service.
The last transportation option offered through
the organization is a taxi voucher program offering
riders a discounted taxicab fare through a local
company.
The service, “through a grant offers a 50-percent
reduction in service for the riders,” Stoller said.
“In the last fiscal year we offered over 15,000
trips,” she said, adding over 5,000 of those were
to Salem residents.
Scott Bogle, vice chair of CART, said the
organization provided 2,342 trips to Salem
residents so far in 2014, adding an AARP study
found one in five Americans over age 65 doesn’t
drive.
Bogle said the demand response service has
provided trips for 80 unique riders over the past
six months. He said it wasn’t possible to track
unique riders on the shuttle service.
Bogle said a similar service funded only by the
town would cost nearly $200,000 annually.
Rider Jocelyn Gallant, 61, urged the board to
continue supporting the service.
“I, one that does not drive, has to rely on public
transportation,” she said. “Life would be very
difficult,” she added if the service was eliminated.
She pleaded with the board to help non-drivers
receive the transportation services.
Chairman Pat Hargreaves said the board
wasn’t looking to cut the service but see if it was
sufficiently serving residents.
“We’re not cutting this out of the budget,”
Hargreaves said. “We’re looking for information.
Selectman Stephen Campbell was concerned
with the number of riders for the demand
response service.
“Ten people account for 50 percent of the trips,”
he said. “Every program has to prove what the
benefit is.”
Campbell challenged the organization to
advertise and work to increase ridership in town.
Stoller said a meeting was scheduled with the
Manchester Transit Authority, which provides the
shuttles, to increase advertising efforts.
She said increasing advertising was a challenge
since there is no budget to do so.
Stoller sought contacts from the board to help
get the word out about the services and said
schedules would run in local media.
“We’re moving along on that route of more
advertising,” she said.
Hargreaves expressed his frustration with CART
for not providing ridership information to the
board.
“It’s amazing we don’t hear from CART for a
whole year,” he said, adding discussion of cutting
the service sparked a new surge of information.
Bogle said the town was entitled to three
representatives on the board of directors, adding
Assistant Town Manager Leon Goodwin was the
only Salem rep.
Campbell volunteered to join the board, which
meets once a month in Derry.
Selectman James Keller questioned why a full-
time executive director was not in place and said
it was important for the organization’s success.
“It’s impossible for a part timer to run any
organization,” he said, hoping a full-time
employee would be considered.
Selectman Everett McBride suggested reduction
in service to Salem residents.
“I think we need to reduce the number of days
of service to make it more efficient,” he said.
Bogle said the shuttle currently runs three days
a week in town, where demand response service
is available five days weekly and taxi service six.
Hargreaves asked the organization to come up
with the cost savings if service days were reduced
and to increase advertising of services.
After three terms serving in the New Hampshire State House, Jim Lawrence (R) of Hudson returned to
running his small business as a Department of Defense contractor helping streamline federal government
spending. A 20-year resident, he felt he should contribute to his community from the private sector.
Well, now he’s back into the political arena. This time he’s running for the 2nd U.S. congressional seat,
hoping to earn the opportunity to challenge incumbent Ann Kuster (D). Lawrence, a U.S. Air Force

to the beach for a weekend. She and her daughter Kristina also
journeyed to Haiti three years ago to offer help to local orphans
affected by the earthquake.
Lilly was a lifelong area resident and owner of Laser Image in
Methuen, MA. Prior to becoming

A new approach to long term care.
Construction Begins at Haigh Avenue to Provide Flood Relief
by Bob Gibbs
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation recently
began the construction of a Haigh Avenue mitigation site and the
restoration of Policy Brook.
During the flooding that hit this area over the past decade,
the Haigh Avenue neighborhood was one of the hardest hit
areas of Salem. As a result of the massive flooding that struck
this neighborhood on Mother’s Day 2006, 23 Haigh Avenue
homeowners petitioned the state and FEMA to purchase their homes.
Phase I of the buyout plan resulted in FEMA purchasing the nine
most southerly homes on Haigh Avenue. After the owners left the
homes, the buildings were demolished and the land was cleared.
According to I-93 Project Director Peter E Stammas, “Phase
I of the mitigation plan creates 9.6 acre feet of new storage for
flood waters. This storage provides some relief from flooding for
the neighborhoods bordering the Spicket River.” This project also
includes efforts to restore approximately 1,300 linear feet of the
Policy Brook to a more curvilinear state. Policy Brook was relocated
to a straight channel that paralleled the interstate when I-93 was
originally constructed.
Originally, the site of the former Salem Wastewater Treatment
Plant was chosen for this project. The Haigh Avenue site was
selected to replace the Salem WWTP site after concerns were raised
following the discovery of soil and groundwater contamination at the
former sewage treatment site.
As stated in the NHDOT Supplemental Wetland Mitigation
Technical Report, “The location of the Haigh Avenue site directly
adjacent to the most substantial floodplain impact greatly improves
the potential effectiveness of floodplain creation, and construction
at Haigh Avenue (previously developed) will avoid unnecessary
impacts to undeveloped forested areas. The plan at Haigh Avenue
will result in approximately 26.3 acre feet of additional flood storage
over an area approximately 10.9 acre in size. The current elevation
of the Haigh Avenue site is 110 feet; the proposed plans place the
final grade of the compensatory storage at elevation 107 feet, i.e.,
reducing grades
about three feet on
average.
Additionally,
the configuration
of the Haigh
Avenue (Policy
Brook) site allows
the floodplain
restoration to
occur in a manner
that is more
geomorphologically
appropriate,
particularly as
compared to the
WWTP site.”
The construction
work at the site
has involved
moving tons of
sand and soil from
the site, creating a
meandering natural
curve to what will
be the new location
of Policy Brook.
A 1959 Clarkson
Engineering Survey
was used to provide an understanding of the original conditions and
the placement of the brook.
Because of this construction, this section of the brook will become
a natural floodplain. Plans call for the channel restoration to have
bankfull width that ranges from 35-40 feet.
The floodplain restoration project also involves restoring the
natural plant life of the
area. A small area of trees
currently in this area has
been maintained. A study
of the native plants growing
within the project area were
classified in accordance with
the NH Natural Heritage
Bureau. From this study,
plants in the ‘Red maple
floodplain community’
will be added to finish the
project. These will include
red maple, green ash,
American elm, black willow,
riverbank grape, and others.
Phase II of this plan will be
to make similar changes to
the area just north of the new
floodplain, should the federal
government (FEMA) obtain
the funds to buy out the
remaining 14 homes. Long-
term plans for this area have
included walking paths and
nature walks.

New District App
to Keep Parents Informed
by S. Aaron Shamshoyan
Technology is evolving meaning new forms of communication are becoming
necessary to reach consumers, and the Salem School District is working to follow
those trends.
A new smartphone application is being released
for parents and students, allowing them to have
direct access to school information any time.
District IT Director David Hasbany told school
board members last week the app was available
for download.
“We’re happy to announce version one of the
Salem School District mobile application,” he said,
adding it would increase communication within
the district and greater community.
District Web Developer David Halpin said
the application will aggregate information from
different platforms and provide parents with easily
accessible information.
He said information from the district’s website,
along with social media platforms, will be
delivered through the app.
“All of those different places where we put
content can be brought together by this one
device,” he said.
The app will allow users to pick schools to
receive information from with relevant information
being displayed on the home screen.
The application will provide information such as
calendars, school directories, renovation progress,
lunch menus, parental documents/forms, and an
infinite campus link.
Halpin said a section for high school students
was being developed along with a sports schedule.
Social media coordinators have been put in
place at all schools, making sure information
is up to date and providing pictures of events.
Currently, each school principal has a Twitter
account, where
school information
is shared.
Board
member Patricia
Corbett said she
downloaded the
app during the
presentation and
was able to quickly
check her son’s
lunch menu and
add important
dates to her
calendar.
Halpin said
the community
was moving away
from traditional
computers and
laptops, and
relying more
heavily on mobile
devices for
communication.
“It’s really a
school wide/district
wide effort,” he
said, adding the
app was available
for download in
the iTunes store
and Google Play.
Superintendent
Michael Delahanty
commended the
application, saying
information was
only relevant
if it gets to the
consumer. He also
said it would allow
for a reduction of
paper letters to
parents, and allow
lunch menus to
change throughout
the month.
Board member
Peter Morgan
was pleased
also. “I think it’s
excellent,” he said.
“Good work.”

Salem Schools Ready for Opening Day
by Bob Gibbs
The Salem School District kicked off the academic year with each
school having its own welcoming picnic on Monday, August 25.
Each facility held an open house to give incoming students and their
parents a chance to familiarize themselves with the school they will
attend this year.
With renovations almost completed at the Fiske and Soule
Elementary schools, all of the students are coming into a newly
remodeled environment. The schools have been enlarged, with
new or updated gymnasiums,
additional storage space, better
security, and a full modern face-
lift to the buildings’ interiors and
exteriors.
All of the teachers and staff
were very excited with the many
changes they now have to work
with. Students and staff alike
were excited about the new
interactive whiteboards that can
still be used as conventional
blackboards. Yet, these
whiteboards offer the additional
capabilities of displaying a laptop
screen, movies, photographs,
charts, and even the option of
teachers and students writing on
and over the display.
Both schools now have
separate cafeterias and
gymnasiums making both
areas safer and offering
more flexibility.
With all of the
excitement of a new
school and a new school
year, a picnic with
everyone’s friends, family
and classmates was a
perfect way to get the
academic year started.

Republican Rockingham County Attorney candidate
Michael Zaino of Hampton
also in attendance, with three of the four
Republican hopefuls answering questions from
panelists.
The challengers will find themselves against
incumbent Ann Kuster (D-District 2), who is
criticized for voting alongside President Obama a
majority of the time.
Candidate Gary Lambert introduced himself,
saying he served the country for 35 years as a
Marine, and was hoping to continue working for
the country.
“I don’t see a lot of service down in Congress,”
Lambert said, adding he was a small business
owner in Nashua.
Candidate Jim Lawrence said the current
representation from the district was negatively
impacting the nation.
“President Barrack Obama being supported by
Ann Kuster is destroying our country,” he said.
Lawrence has served three terms in the New
Hampshire State House and is an Air Force
veteran with eight children.
Current New Hampshire Representative
Marilinda Garcia (R-Salem) is making a bid for
the congressional seat, saying trust needed to be
established in government.
“There is a complete breakdown of trust
between the governed and the governing,”
she said, adding citizens and elected officials
currently don’t share trust.
Garcia criticized Kuster for her public support
of the Affordable Healthcare Bill, saying she has
seen adverse effects through the state.
“This trajectory the country’s on needs to be
stopped,” she said, adding she was concerned
with the size and scope of government.
Panelist Bernard W. Campbell, a high school
teacher and chamber representative from
Campbell’s Scottish Highlands, asked candidates
if they could pass one bill during their time in the
position, what it would be.
Lambert said his bill would be healthcare
reform for veterans, adding he was concerned
about the VA.
“I want to reform the VA system for veterans’
healthcare,” he said.
Lawrence agreed, but said that immigration
was a higher priority. “The biggest issue that I
want to face is the immigration issue,” he said.
Garcia said tax reform was her top priority.
“We could reenergize our economy,” she said.
Len Lathrop, publisher of the Salem
Community Patriot, questioned candidates about
the decline in the New Hampshire advantage,
citing a study where the state declined from 14 to
35 and another rating it at 18.
Lawrence said he would work to support
business in the state.
“I was always a big advocate for the businesses
and the business climate,” he said, noting the
high energy costs in the state.
Lawrence said he would work to implement
lower cost solutions to generate energy.
Garcia said government overreach was to
blame for the changing business climate.
She said she would “make sure I am voting to
reduce the power in DC.”
Lambert said he wanted Washington out of the
way of business owners, providing them fewer
constraints to make it easier to succeed.
“I’m going out there to cut the regulations,” he
said.
Campbell questioned Garcia on her vote
opposing expanded gaming at Rockingham Park
as a state representative.
Garcia responded saying she represented the
residents who voted against a casino in the town,
and always made public her position.
“I’m not interested in turning our state into a
money-making
machine for Las
Vegas,” she said. “There were too many false
promises.”
Lambert said it was important for localities to
determine their own destiny,
“To me it’s a jobs issue,” he said, adding the
casino would have generated at least 3,000 jobs.
Lawrence said he ran for the state house on a
platform to get government out of business.
He said he supported the concept to allow
localities to support expanded gaming.
Lambert closed citing his service to the
country. “Life is about service,” he said. “Putting
your country before yourself.”
Lawrence said President Obama is destroying
the country, adding he would work to increase
options for education, and healthcare, and create
jobs through small businesses.
Garcia said she was elected to the New
Hampshire House for four terms, and
would work to reduce the size and scope of
government. She said it was important for
citizens to have the power to make decisions.
Candidates including Republican state
representatives and gubernatorial candidates
were also in attendance. Andrew Hemingway
was the only gubernatorial candidate present.
The New Hampshire primary is Tuesday,
September 9.

Thumbs Up? Thumbs Down? Thumbs Up? Thumbs Down?
Comments expressed in this column are the sole views of those callers and do not reflect the views of the Salem Community Patriot or its advertisers. Town and school officials encourage
readers to seek out assistance directly to resolve any problems or issues. The Salem Community Patriot editorial staff holds the right to refuse any comment deemed inappropriate.
“Thumbs down. Enough already with Jeanne
Shaheen trying to tell her constituents she is
fighting for them. What a fraud. It was Jeanne
Shaheen that supported and signed Obamacare
which placed a tax on medical devices
including wheelchairs and cost thousands of her
constituents to lose their insurance, their doctors,
their hospitals and drastically raised our insurance
premiums. She is now trying to convince the
veterans in New Hampshire she is on their side.
Don’t buy it. Either Jeanne Shaheen knew what
was in this Obamacare debacle or else she didn’t
read it. That is reckless and irresponsible and does
not deserve to be re-elected.”
“Thumbs down to Canobie Lake Park. I was
appalled at seeing people smoking their disgusting
cancer sticks at wide open gazebos inside the
park, and the crazy parents that ditched their
kids to light up. It’s bad enough these people
disrespectfully expose others to carcinogenic
elements while displaying their filthy habit of
smoking in public areas all over. Now you can’t
even go to an amusement park because the park’s
owner is stupid enough to allow such a dirty
and hazardous activity to take place. I’ll never
recommend their amusement park to anyone I
know or companies looking for outings.”
“Thumbs down to Libertarians. Salem added
David Coombs who says the U.S. has a ‘free
market.’ The myth of ‘free market’ has excused
40 million people without health insurance. That
mythical market’s entrepreneurs exploit minimum
wage workers dependent upon government
assistance. Their market allows a few to
accumulate while the majority falls behind, not a
good thing. Libertarian market is not good for the
vast majority, they should be ashamed. It is time
they acquaint yourselves with Pope Francis!”
“Thumbs down to Robert Utley, Board of
Adjustment member, he voted to approve a
commercial business in a residential area.”
“Thumbs down to Scott Brown . There is a
problem with our borders in the southwestern
states and VA health care in Arizona so Scott
Brown you should move there and fix the
problems there. We want senator that will help
fix the New Hampshire’s issues. Why were you
only a one term senator in Massachusetts? I don’
t like it when the government shuts down because
of vote. That makes Wall street go crazy and what
little I earn my retirement savings gets wiped out
every time and it take years to get it back. I am
so fed up with the senate if you had jobs in the
private sector you senators would all be fired.”
“Thumbs down to the person who criticized the
U.S. Government for financially supporting Israel
and calling Israelis war criminals. Hamas is a
terrorist organization and Israel, our ally and the
only truly Democratic government in the Middle
East, has every right to defend itself. Hamas,
which puts its civilians at risk by storing weapons
in schools and mosques, hates America as much
as it hates Israel. Have you forgotten that it was
the Palestinians who were widely photographed
dancing in the streets after 9/11?”
“Thumbs up to all the motorists in the state of
New Hampshire who obey the move over law.
If you cannot move over, please slow down for
motorists and emergency vehicles.”
“Thumbs up. From all nations, and as
sinners, we can become Catholic. But we must
change ourselves for God. James 2:22 ‘You
see, his faith and his actions worked together.
His actions made his faith complete.’ People
should become Catholic because they believe
its teachings. Antichrists in every walk of life,
possibly disguised as rabbis, pagans, ministers,
priests, college professors, atheists, the Pope,
doctors, political figures, freemasons, etc., rally
people into believing it’s okay to change or give
up completely biblical truths/God’s Word for
humanistic or ethical relativistic desires. These
antichrists deliberately teach falsities, leading
many into Satan’s lair.”
“Thumbs down. A big thumbs down to
the drivers that live in the Barron Ave. Ext.
neighborhood. They need to be schooled on the
meaning of a stop sign. There is one young drivers
in a white Nissan SUV that blew thru the stop
sign , drove down the middle
of the road over the yellow line
all while talking on her cell
phone. I was behind her on
Route 28 and passed her. She
is a menace. Please if you don’t
care about your own safety then
think of others.”
“Thumbs up to the
construction truck drivers on
Haigh Ave. Thank you for being
kind to my Grandchildren each
time you passed them. They
enjoyed the horn tooting and
waving. Thanks again for taking
the time to acknowledge them.”
“Thumbs down for the Planning board fill-in
member who presided over the Landscaper case.
He has a conflict of interest, and should have
recused himself as did other members involved.
You can’t serve two masters.”
“Thumbs up to TM Hickey for publicly ‘dressing
down’ Selectman Campbell at Monday night’s
meeting, maybe now SC will stop typing his
garbage on social media. Just imagine though
how much time and effort Lil Stevie spent making
Mrs. Roth and Mrs. Covey’s lives miserable and
ask yourself ‘what kind of person has the time or
motivation to do such a thing?’ Several words
come to mind that aren’t printable but you have to
agree this is not a person who should be making
decisions for anyone especially the Citizens of
Salem. Selectman ‘Crybaby’ will you please go
away!”
“Thumbs down to harm. If a man points a gun
at you, no matter what the costume, file a claim
against that man in his personal capacity. Tazer
gun, laser gun, radar gun. They are all guns. How
do I know what type of gun it is. You point a gun
at my car, there may be a horrible accident as I try
to avoid the bullet or laser that it projects. Stop
pointing guns at other men!”
“Thumbs down to the sallow-faced little man
running his ‘Impeach Obama’ stand on Main
Street. The Obama face drawing comes equipped
with the usual Hitler mustache, and the sight of
this jerk waving to the passing cars while picking
his nose (did he think that the drivers couldn’t see
him?) was a sickening sight indeed. The President
isn’t going to be impeached, but he will be
spending the next two and a half years continuing
to fix most of the problems left by the prior
administration. This kind of racism doesn’t belong
in Salem, or anywhere else for that matter.”
“Thumbs up/Thumbs down to George Perry,
the other board members step down because
of a conflict of interest! Mathews is employed
by Salem Crossing Condo Association. You as a
board member of that association hired Matthews
and should have stepped down because of a
conflict of interest. You don’t belong on any
board.”
“Thumbs down to Marilinda Garcia, Bianca
Garcia and Martha Spaulding for putting signs on
private property without the owner’s permission.
Seems like the Garcia sisters feel like they can
do as they want. Well, your father might be the
chairman but you two are breaking the law.”
“Thumbs down to Ferguson, Missouri: Michael
Brown was killed by the deadly force, militarized
police enforcing Jim Crow. Militarized police
attacked protestors engaged in non violent, civil
disobedience. Much as Salem tea partiers might
theorize; militarized police and Jim Crow are not
what the founding fathers meant. Well, maybe the
slaveholding founders.”
“Thumbs up to the gentleman I see on the way
to work every morning picking
up the trash along Veterans
Parkway/Geremonty Drive (with
an oxygen tank no less). Now
if we can only get everyone to
stop throwing their trash out the
window, maybe he can enjoy his
walks without having to pick up
after those slobs!”
“Thumbs down to Candidates
Bic, Conway, and Manning. At
last night’s candidates night you
were supposed to answer the
questions posed to you from
the Chamber, not go off on your
own personal rants about how great you are. Ms.
Conway, ‘look,’ if you are such a leader in the
CA office you’d be restoring order and morale
now, not waiting to be elected. Mr. Bic, you
have nothing to support your arguments about
crime and etc concerning a casino so sit down
and be quiet. Mr. Manning, please stop running
for offices. You lied to all of us last night when
you said that our delegation goes to Concord and
works as a team for Salem. I’m still laughing over
that one!”
“Thumbs down to
Selectmen’s actions in regards
to political events Manager
Hickeys attended. Are some of
our town employees members
of secret societies and cover for
each other? Have they taken
a secret oath to protect each
other? Does this oath supersede
their obligation to do what’s
right for the town? I believe
they would. Didn’t President
John F. Kennedy warn us of this
before he died?”
“Thumbs down to the Board
of Selectmen. During their
meeting, they ask for public
input on a topic, show an empty
audience, then giggle when
nobody is there to give their
opinion. Giggle, giggle. What will the meeting
topics be? Is it some secret? Publish the topics a
week in advance to give ‘We The People’ a chance
to voice our opinion. Get involved people!”
“Thumbs up. After coming home to my
mailbox being vandalized, thumbs up to Officer
C. Decker for giving my
daughter a pep talk about kids
and parents that feel the need
to say bad things about you that
they are not worth anything .
We know who you are; hope
you feel good inside. Looks like
my mailbox got the best of you.”
“Thumbs down to ‘secret
societies.’ John F. Kennedy
spoke about them. Which
town employees belong to what
organizations? Those oaths can
be secret, and their obligation
to protect one another may
supersede their obligation to us. Demand full
disclosure. Freemasons. Knights of Columbus.
Knights Templar. Scottish Right. Many of these
societies have blood-oaths of secrecy to each
other.”
“Thumbs up/Thumbs down. Why does
Marilinda Garcia believe that she is qualified to
become our senator and represent us? She proved
that she doesn’t represent us when she voted
against the casino in Salem. If you check her
voting record in Concord, you will find that she
has been absent or abstained on many votes on a
more personal level, she has never returned one
of my phone calls when I had questions on a bill.”
“Thumbs down to Senator Chuck Morse! I have
been at several public meetings with our senator
and I can’t believe the statement ’when I make up
my mind about something I never change it’ (not
verbatim) Is that narrow minded? If someone can
show anyone of us a better way to do something,
we wouldn’t consider it? This statement from one
of our state’s most illustrious people really bothers
me. He won’t get my vote.”
“Thumbs down to Ron Gibbs who wrote the
article about beaches in Salem. The beach at
Shadow Lake across from Silvan Drive is owned
by the Shadow Beach Association and has been
private since the 1940s. We pay the taxes and
insurance so I would like Rob to do his homework
next time.”
“Thumbs down. Please don’t vote for Marilinda
Garcia. Just like she didn’t vote for the casino.
Please, give it to anyone else but her. This guy
Lambert seems like a straight shooter. Why not
give him a chance. She’s no good for Salem.”
“Thumbs down to Marilinda Garcia who threw
the people of Salem under the bus. She does not
deserve to be reelected.”
“Thumbs down to T-Bones. I also will not be
eating at T-Bones. I don’t like politics served with
my dinner.”
“Thumbs down to the person that believes that
conservatives trip over the Bible while waving the
flag. I do neither but have respect for both.”

Regina Birdsell Vies for District 19 NH Senate Seat
Regina Birdsell, a state representative from Hampstead, has announced
her campaign for State Senate in Windham, Derry, and Hampstead
(District 19). Birdsell has served in the NH House since 2010, and
recently served as chairman of the Rockingham County Republican
Committee.
Birdsell is a 10-year veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard, a graduate from
Merrimack College in Andover, Mass., and a recruiter in the high-tech
industry.
Regina is running on a six-point platform, starting with economic
development. “Bringing good-paying jobs to District 19 will spread
out our property tax burden, as well as improve the lives of those still
struggling in this economy. I will work with the Department of Resources
and Economic Development to speak with companies looking to relocate
to NH,” Birdsell said.
In regards to transportation, Birdsell says that “I-93’s expansion has
taken too long, and one reason is the misappropriation of gas tax money.
By law, gas tax revenue must go toward infrastructure, but the legislature
diverts some of it for other reasons. I will fight to make sure the money
we spend on gas taxes goes toward finishing 93, as well as improving
other routes in Windham.”
Birdsell record of fiscal responsibility is flawless, with Americans
for Prosperity giving her an A+ for her voting record. Said Birdsell, “I
have a perfect record of voting against tax increases such as the gas
tax, and against establishing new ones. In addition, diligent oversight
of state departments and how they
prioritize spending equals more efficient
government.”
In regards to casinos, Birdsell supports
them, but on two conditions. “First, the
proposal must protect taxpayers and
promote competition. Second, because
of the uncertainty of casino revenue, all
revenue should go toward transportation
and business infrastructure, like red-listed
bridges and broadband expansion,” Birdsell
said. “This way, we can prevent budget
deficits, while improving the areas our
businesses need for expansion.”
Birdsell is a strong supporter of the
Second Amendment, with an A- record
from the National Rifle Association. “I have
never voted to infringe upon the Second Amendment, and I will be a
voice for NH’s responsible firearm users,” Birdsell said.
Finally, in regards to education, Birdsell supports rigorous standards,
but opposes Common Core. “Our public education system is one of
the best in the country, and it is because we cherish local control. In
addition, with the proliferation of charter schools, our parents have more
educational choices than ever.”

Governor Hassan Calls State of the State ‘Strong and Growing even Stronger’
by S. Aaron Shamshoyan
Despite problems in Washington, the New
Hampshire government is progressive and working
toward improving the landscape for businesses
and citizens, according to Governor Maggie
Hassan (D).
“The state of our state is strong and growing
even stronger,” Hassan said to a room full of locals
and business leaders on Northwestern Boulevard.
“In New Hampshire, we have worked to bring
people together across party lines,” she said.
Citing the 2013-2014 biennium budget, Hassan
said both sides of the isle supported the proposal,
giving it the most bipartisan support in nearly a
decade.
She said the plan included funding for higher
education, increased public safety, and economic
development programs.
“It’s a budget that’s helping working class
citizens breathe a little bit easier,” she said.
And the economy in the state is growing,
with about 10,000 jobs being created by small
businesses over the past year, according to the
governor.
Keeping on an upward trend, the state must
seek to retain young adults and fill skilled
positions.
“To build an even stronger workforce, we must
keep more young people here in the state,” she
said.
Lawmakers are working to help students afford
higher education according to Hassan, saying
a tuition freeze has been
instituted for state schools,
and community college
tuitions will decline by five
percent.
An increased emphasis
on science, technology,
engineering, and math
(STEM) programs will also
help prepare students for
high-tech manufacturing
jobs in the state.
Hassan said high-tech
manufacturing agencies are
having a hard time finding
workers to fill well-paying
positions. She said a video
titled “What’s so Cool about
Manufacturing,” has been created for eighth
graders to teach them more about the field.
She said a small, accessible, and nimble
government continues to support business in the
state.
The state provides business services in
innovative ways, she said, noting the Business
One Stop.
The program is designed to help business
owners learn what would be required to start or
expand a business in the state. Digital forms and
applications will also help with this process and
Hassan said she issued an executive order to get
all possible forms and documents online by next
fall.
The support of the state’s infrastructure is also
important to provide a successful environment
for businesses, with Hassan noting the substantial
work being done to Interstate 93.
“This year we also came together to support our
roads and bridges,” she said, adding the interstate
expansion project has been the most substantial in
23 years.
“I-93 is the backbone of our infrastructure,”
she said. “We all know strengthening our
transportation infrastructure will boost our
economy.”
Speaking Tuesday, Hassan said it was National
Women’s Equality Day, adding the state has
passed legislation to make sure everyone is
compensated fairly for his or her work regardless
of gender.
The governor said she enacted a healthcare
protection program in March, allowing better
access to providers and reducing the strain of cost
shifting to businesses.
Hassan said within weeks of the program,
thousands signed up
for affordable quality
health care. She said
insurance could be more
easily purchased from
employers or private
providers if not offered.
The state is on track
to have five providers
offering 50 plans over the
next year. Three of those
providers would cover
every hospital in the
state, she said.
Hassan also advocated
for stronger mental
health care services,
saying funding was
increased last year.
Hassan said New Hampshire residents could
better serve mental health challenges than federal
judges.
“Substance abuse occurs frequently with
mental health challenges,” she said, adding
abuse of prescriptions can often lead to an opiate
addiction.
A new prescription drug monitoring program
will begin in October, allowing patients to be
monitored and signs of addiction checked.
Hassan also advocated increasing the
availability of Narcan, an opioid depression
reversal drug, which she said could save lives.
The governor touched on the cost of energy in
the state, saying diverse affordable sources were
needed to bring down costs, and allow business
to grow.
“High energy prices hurt our families and limit
business growth,” Hassan said. “We must work to
diversify our energy sources.”
But a visit to Salem could not be complete
without a discussion on expanded gaming.
“The overall market remains strong,” Hassan
said about gaming despite the closing of Atlantic
City casinos.
Hassan said New Hampshire gambling
revenue should be used to invest in the state,
not Massachusetts and Maine. She said the
establishment of a regulatory committee could
help sway opponents to favor a single, highly
regulated casino, which she supports.
Hassan said the state government will continue
to work efficiently, supported by citizens.
“Granite Staters roll up their sleeves and come
together to get things done,” she said.

‘Invest’ in Fred Doucette
for State Rep
On Tuesday, September 9, there is an important Republican Primary. I
am running for state representative here in
Salem, and I hope you choose to invest one
of your votes in me. I am a retired fire officer/
paramedic having worked for the Town of
Salem Fire Department for 25 years. I’ve raised
my family here and am very involved in the
community that I love. I am running for state
representative, because I understand the needs
of the citizens of this great town, and I will
listen to you and represent my constituents
well. Being an elected representative is an
honor. It means doing what is best for your
constituents, even if you don’t necessarily
always agree on a personal level. Being a
representative means that you are responsible
to the voters who choose you.
If elected, I will listen to the people of Salem
by supporting a casino at Rockingham Park,
support revenue sources and job creation
without raising taxes, and be transparent and
accountable with all of my votes. I am a Republican who believes that we can
move our state forward in a fiscally responsible manner that will continue to
make New Hampshire and Salem in particular, a great place to live, work, and
raise a family. If I am elected as your state representative, you can count on me
to always keep Salem’s interests in mind, every single day. On September 9, I
hope you “invest” one of your votes is me, Fred Doucette, Republican for State
Representative.
So Many Great Choices
for State Representatives
I am prompted to write this as I was one of the missing candidates noted in
Bob Gibbs’ August 15 article – “Political Season
Underway and in Full Swing.” I had opted to
attend a function that same night in support of
my congressional candidate of choice.
Much like the other 18 Republican
candidates, I am running in hopes of being
able to alter the unsustainable direction our
government is going and I have the one thing
most voters do not – time to fulfill the duties
required to serve. As an advocate for limited
government and fiscal responsibility, I will vote
against any new taxes. I believe the best use
of Rockingham Park, for Salem and the park’s
history, is to allow a casino to be approved
while there is still time for this to remain a
viable option. I believe we must change the
barriers to business growth through reductions
in the business taxes and through right-to-work
legislation. As the parent of a 13 year old (my wife and I have custody of our
grandson), I oppose ‘Common Core’ in our public schools and believe parents
should have more options over their children’s education. I will be a strong
advocate for our active duty and veteran needs as I am a retired Air Force officer
and self-employed; and as such, I am required to pay for my own health care
or rely on the VA for medical services. I will also be a staunch guardian of the
2nd Amendment and other rights given to U.S. citizens under the U.S. and NH
Constitutions.
If elected, be assured that I know where my duties will require me to be and
I pledge to be present to fulfill them. Please feel free to contact me at David@
dlbruce4nhstaterep.org and I will gladly expand on any point you desire. I hope
you will consider me for one of you nine votes on September 9.

Reach Top Mileage on Your Car
with it Still Going Strong
Many drivers may find the idea of keeping a
vehicle that has surpassed the 100,000-mile mark
preposterous. However, perhaps due to the rising
cost of new vehicles, many drivers now recognize
the benefits of keeping their vehicles for the long
haul.
According to Polk research, many of today’s
drivers are keeping their cars for
longer periods of time, with the
average age of all cars on the road
being 11 years. In October of
2011, Joe LoCicero saw his 1990
Honda Accord crack the one mil-
lion mile mark, a feat for which Honda awarded him a new Accord
and a parade in his hometown.
There are many benefits to keeping a car longer, including the
financial impact of such a decision. In a recent survey and study
from Consumer Reports, the savings of keeping a vehicle for
225,000 miles over 15 years versus purchasing and financing an
identical model every five years equated to a savings of more than
the original purchase price of the car. A person can potentially save
$20,000 or more on a properly maintained older car.
Keeping a car running beyond 200,000 miles was once pure
luck. Cars made 10 to 20 years ago might not have been up to the
task. But improvements in rust prevention, lubricants and engine
technology have made it easier for today’s vehicles to last longer.
But as durable and reliable as today’s cars may be, AAA notes the
importance of regular maintenance.
Knowing your car is one of the first ways to make sure it gets the
service it needs. Over time, many drivers start to identify warning
signs, such as abnormal noises or if the vehicle simply feels off
when out on the road.
Finding a mechanic that can be trusted is an important step for
drivers who want to keep their vehicles going strong for years to
come. A driver is more likely to bring the car in for service if the
price is right and he or she does not feel like any costly and unnec-
essary repairs are being recommended. Building a good relation-
ship with a mechanic can keep a car working longer. Newer model
year cars can be taken to dealership mechanics, who may have a
better working knowledge of newer electronics and the subtleties of
specific models of cars.
The owner’s manual should not be something that simply takes
up space inside the glove compartment. It is worthy of a read.
Understanding the recommended maintenance schedule and what
other steps can be taken to prolong the life of the car can keep it
on the road longer. Keeping the tires inflated to the proper pressure
and using the right type of gasoline are the types of information that
can be found in the manual.
Drivers can save a lot of money
on unnecessary repairs if they
follow these guidelines.
Many people are keeping
their vehicles longer, reach-
ing mile marks that were once
unheard of. Investing in a car
that has a good track record
of longevity and then properly
maintaining the vehicle are
necessary to getting the most out
of your vehicle investment.

The Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce has recognized
Joanne’s commitment to the Greater Salem business community
by selecting her as the 2014 William A. Brown Distinguished
Businessperson Award, the chamber’s most prestigious award.
Joanne, who is the director of golf at Windham Country Club, was
chosen based on her business leadership, community improvement,
charitable involvement, public service, and high moral character.
This award, in its 33rd year, is given in the memory of William
A. Brown, who was the first to receive it. Carrying on with this
great tradition, the Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce and the
Platinum Sponsor, Citizens Bank, will honor Joanne and recognize
other award recipients at the chamber’s annual dinner meeting on
Sept. 24.
Joanne picked up her first golf club at age six. Early on she
developed a passion for the business as she learned under the
tutelage of her father, PGA Professional Bill Flynn, at the Thomson
Country Club. For Joanne, her game was usually secondary, as she
worked alongside her father focusing on how to manage the course
and quickly developing a passion for the business.
This led to her becoming an assistant professional in 1988 and
taking over the management of the family’s nine-hole course,
Lakeview Golf Course in Wenham, Mass. In addition to playing,
she began teaching and developing junior golfers. Monday
mornings throughout the summer consisted of giving free clinics
to approximately 50 juniors and letting them play on the course.
In 1994, she was elected “Class A” PGA professional. Her family
purchased land in 1992 and built Windham Country Club, which
opened its doors in 1995 and is now celebrating its 20th season.
The Windham Country Club began giving back
to the community from the moment it opened
its doors, holding yearly summer golf camps for
the Lowell Boys & Girls Club (instructing 200
low-income children for a week) and hosting
adaptive Golf Program with Northeast Passage
for disabled people and veterans.
Joanne was the first woman head golf
professional in New Hampshire. She has been
recognized by the NH chapter of the New
England PGA as the 2002 & 2008 Junior Golf
Promoter, as well as awarded the 2012 Bill
Straughsbaugh Club Relations Award. In 2014,
she received the Outstanding Women in Family
Business Award at the New England Family
Business Conference. Joanne received her
undergraduate degree from Leslie University,
and master’s degree in business administration
from Southern New Hampshire University.
In addition to her professional accomplishments, Joanne has
exemplified the Flynn family spirit of giving back and been
recognized by numerous groups for her passionate support and
active involvement in various charitable organizations. She
currently serves as the president of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater
Salem, and has received several awards from that organization,
such as 2007 Volunteer of the Year, 2008 Presidents Award and in
2011 the Richard McCoy Award. Joanne also currently serves on
the Board of the Salem Animal Rescue League as vice president.
She has been critical to their fundraising effort and keeping the
organization financially stable. Joanne has been an avid supporter
of A Safe Place, an organization that strives to eliminate and prevent
domestic abuse. She organizes a Women’s Charity Golf Classic that
has raised approximately $200,000 over the past 16 years, and was
twice voted a Sign of Hope by the organization.
The chamber will also be honoring the following volunteers
for their hard work and dedication to the chamber over the past
year: Ed David, from Edward C. David & Company, CPAs, with the
Chairman’s Award and John B. DeBaun, from Pentucket Bank, with
a Volunteer of the Year Award. The presentations will take place
Wednesday, September 24, at Castleton Banquet and Conference
Center, Windham, and will begin with cocktails at 6 p.m. Dinner
will begin at 7 p.m., with the presentation of awards immediately
following. Tickets are $60 per person, with tables of 10 available.
For additional information, to purchase a congratulatory ad for
any of the three award winners, or to purchase tickets, contact the
chamber office at 893-3177.

Keller said new laws regarding wetlands would allow nearly an acre
to be filled in to construct the facility, making the Veterans Memorial
property viable.
“This facility needed to be located somewhere within the towns
central district,” he said, adding he researched over 20 available and
soon-to-be available properties in the district but found they wouldn’t
work for the project.
The new building would be about 45,000 square feet and feature six
to seven double bays for the fire department and two for police prisoner
transports.
“This is really the primary and only really logical location,” he told the
board.
So far work on the project has been volunteer with representatives
of three local companies working with Keller and Selectman Everett
McBride to find a location.
Keller said next steps would be to generate a proposal for voters and
get a plan on the ballot in March. Doing so would cost about $65,000
he said, adding he planned to use information from past proposals to
reduce the cost. If successful, the building would be finished in 18 to 24
months, he said.
The right side of the building would be to the right of the current
police department, and would be the new police location. The left side
would then become the new central fire station.
“We would plan on constructing the police side of the organization
first,” Keller said, noting once the department moved the current
building would be demolished.
Once the fire department moved to the new facility, the current
property would likely go up for sale to offset the cost.
Deputy Police Chief Shawn Patten said the department favored the
proposal. “We’re on board 100 percent,” he said. “It’s something that’s
been needed for a long, long time.”
Fire Chief Kevin Breen agreed, saying the central station is outdated
and in need of improvements.
“It was essentially functionality obsolete ten years after it was built,”
he said.
McBride said the committee looked at a location on the current
grounds of Rockingham Park but found the property cost prohibitive.
“I think there’s going to be much more efficient response times, he
said about moving the fire station to Veterans Memorial Parkway.
Selectman Stephen Campbell raised concerns about the speed of the
project, saying it should be delayed a year allowing time for preliminary
work to go out to bid. “I think we’re rushing,” he said.
Campbell added the cost to repair the current buildings would be less
than a new facility.
“For $65,000, I think we can get this going,” Selectman Michael Lyons
told the board, adding the main project would go to bid of approved by
voters.
The board voted 4-1 to appropriate funds to continue the project with
Campbell in opposition. Proposals for voters are anticipated for early
2015.

need to be emptied frequently.
Morrison is looking to expand his
efforts into New Hampshire, hoping to
assess the status of the Merrimack River in
Manchester, noting waste can flow from the
north down.
“Look at the river like a giant conveyer
belt,” he said. “You always have trash
floating down.”
Morse was pleased with the work being
done by Morrison and the crew, praising
their efforts.
“What a great job they’re doing with this
river,” said Morse, after the river tour.
The operation is funded by donations
and grants both from government and
private organizations. The entire crew
volunteers their time to work on the river,
Morrison said.
But the Merrimack isn’t the only
destination they hope to look at in the
state. Canobie Lake is said to be filled
with hundreds of sunken pine trees, which
occasionally float to the top and cause
problems with boaters.
The logs are stamped “U.S.” on the
bottom, and are assumed to be from a
World War II base, which used to exist
on the lake, now Salem’s drinking water
reservoir.
Morrison said he occasionally gets calls
from the Windham Department of Public
Works and Police Department to remove
the 20-foot logs, which float to the surface.
Working on Canobie won’t be easy.
Morrison said two permits have to be
obtained from the state, one to allow divers
in a drinking water supply, and the second
to remove the trees, and there have been
struggles to receive them.
The second problem is finding a funding
source to conduct a survey of the lake, and
then the cost of the operation.
Morrison said he is also working with the
Salem Conservation Commission to obtain
access to remove fallen trees in the Spicket
River, which would make it passable for
kayakers.
Morse encouraged the organization to
begin projects in New Hampshire and said
support would come from residents.
“The support will come,” Morse said,
noting the state’s 400 representatives and
enthusiasm toward volunteerism and hard
work.
Morrison said he plans to fundraise and
obtain permits to enter Canobie, saying
work could begin next year on the lake.

The 2013 season, in which the Salem High School Girls
Soccer team finished 1-13-2, would have been disheartening
to some programs. For the Blue Devils and Head Coach
Kendrick Whittle, however, the laborious season was viewed
as necessary for the program’s overall development. The
team, he knows, will be better for the experience that last
season brought them.
The Blue Devils have used their
unrivaled effort to continue their forward
progress this offseason. With an entire
season of experience to learn from, Salem
will return to the field ready for more
challenges. “So far preseason has gone extremely well,”
said Whittle. “The girls have come out to work hard each
day and we are improving.”
Leading the Blue Devils on the field will be two-year
captain and four-year varsity starter Harley Chute. Chute’s
presence on and off the field will be essential to the
improvement of the team. “The girls really look up to her.
She really is like having another coach on the staff,” said
Whittle.
Salem High will open their season at Keene High School
on Friday, August 29. Their first home game will take place
on Wednesday, September 3, as they host Memorial High
School of Manchester.
While the Blue Devils
are hoping for more wins
and possibly even a playoff
appearance, the main target for
the 2014 season is to continue
improving and developing
both as individual players and
as a team. “Our goal for the
upcoming season is to play each
game as though it’s a playoff
match,” said Whittle. “We are
looking to take a step forward
from last year.”

After a strong 2013 season, the Salem High School boys’ Soccer
team has their sights set even higher for 2014.
Last season, the Blue Devils finished with a 10-6
regular season record and secured a home game for
the postseason tournament. Salem’s season ended
abruptly, with a first-round loss to Londonderry High
School, 4-3, in overtime.
But the score of that game was not the
whole story. After falling behind three
goals to none, Salem was able to
come back to tie the game, scoring
all three goals in the final 13
minutes of regulation time before
falling in overtime. While they
were not able to advance into the
postseason, Head Coach Anthony
Karibian witnessed something even
greater than victory from his team:
he saw heart. Karibian hopes the Blue
Devils’ fighting spirit will carry them further
into the postseason this year.
Salem’s success will depend heavily on how they
can fill the holes left in their lineup after graduation.
“We lost three key seniors who made a tremendous
impact each and every match,” said Karibian. This
year’s team has been working hard in the offseason
and Karibian believes there are players ready to step
up and lead the Blue Devils.
One of those players is four-year varsity starter Todd
Righini. According to Karibian, Righini has been a
special player from the beginning of his high school
career. As a freshman, he showed potential. During his sophomore
and junior seasons, Righini worked hard to fulfill that potential,
making amazing individual efforts and also improving the play of
his teammates around him. “As a senior, I believe he’ll continue to
demonstrate that kind of talent along with the maturity that comes
from being a senior,” said Karibian.
Another leader on this year’s team will be Bret Grady. Grady
is a senior defender who Karibian expects will have a big
season. “He is an exceptional athlete and a player with
tremendous integrity,” said Karibian. “He will lead on
and off the field, an essential quality for a leader when
building a team.”
Salem will depend heavily on Grady, Righini,
and the other seniors to lead the team and guide
the younger players who are just beginning their
high school varsity careers. Salem’s seniors have an
opportunity to set the tone for the next generation
of Blue Devils. Karibian is confident in their ability
to positively impact the younger athletes. “Young
players will have some excellent role models to follow this
season,” said Karibian.
The returning Blue Devils have done a lot to improve this
offseason in hopes of extending their stay in this year’s postseason.
Some players have competed in camps and clinics this summer to
hone their skills and advance their play. More than a few Salem
players have even played spring soccer with various club teams.
“They’ve all been working individually through the summer to stay
fit,” said Karibian. “I believe we’ll come into pre-season without too
many cob webs to clear out.”
Salem will open their season at home, hosting Keene High School
on Friday, August 29. Karibian and the rest of the Blue Devils hope it
will be the start to a successful 2014 campaign.
