by Robyn Hatch The Salem Lions Club helped 30 local families celebrate Thanksgiving this year. The club members prepared and delivered 30 Thanksgiving baskets to local residents. The Lions assembled the baskets full of Thanksgiving favorites and delivered them to local families who would otherwise have been unable to celebrate the holiday. Project Chairperson, Diane Maddox, along with her committee, created the grocery list, did the shopping, and assembled and delivered the baskets with the help of the Lions Club mascot for the families’ Thanksgiving Feast. According to Maddox, “the Thanksgiving basket project is a great way for the Salem Lions Club to help families in need during the holiday season.” The Salem Lions Club has 45 members and meets monthly. Lions Clubs are groups of men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfill those needs.

Santa arrives by Robyn Hatch On a sunny Saturday, people lined Main Street to see the Christmas Parade and hopefully catch a glimpse of Santa Claus. The streets were lined with young and old alike, balloon and pretzel vendors entertained, and the hot chocolate-chip cookies from Saint David’s were tasty and plentiful. Christine Honey-Nadeau, the new Haigh principal, arrived in a vintage vehicle and served as the Parade Mascot. There were clowns passing out candy, Canobie Lake Mascots entertaining children, Salem Policemen and Firemen strutting their stuff, as well as some of the Town Politicians waving and smiling to the crowd. Most of the schools had floats with their students riding on them, waving flags and looking for their parents and relatives. St. Joseph’s had a huge display celebrating their 50th Anniversary, complete with the parade’s Disney theme and movie film. Chief Puzzo from Salem’s JROTC came down the street in an airplane that the class had just finished, promoting the incredible program they offer. With a smile on his face, and a wave to all, he was definitely having a great time. The Salem Animal Rescue walked down the street with some of their dogs waiting for adoption. This almost made you want to adopt right on the spot. Many dance academies performed routines on the street, and historical tractors showed the crowds what the machines used to look like to what a tractor is now. The Lions Club Lion Mascot was busy waving to the crowd and the Shriners entertained with their miniature cars. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and the Salem Blue Devils all made the parade exciting and well worth the wait. After a delay and anticipation built to the maximum, Santa arrived waving to the crowd. The children were thrilled and waved back to him. The crowd left quickly in an orderly fashion with visions of Christmas dancing in their heads. Good job, Salem, and all who put this event together! Christmas is now officially here!

Seniors Celebrate Thanksgiving
To dance and forget it all by Robyn Hatch The Salem Senior Center celebrated an incredible Thanksgiving Party at the Harris’ Pelham Inn in Pelham. There was no better place to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner than right here in New Hampshire at our own Harris’ Pelham Inn. People gathered to give thanks and have fun with friends and fellow seniors from
Friends Bill Laycock and Marion Leriche surrounding towns. Close to 150 seniors showed up to enjoy the afternoon. The party started off with an hour of dancing, followed by a fully dressed turkey dinner, and an exciting show to follow. This was a party not to forget. Thanks again, Patti Drelick and the Salem Senior Center!
Timberland Employees Volunteer
Waiting for Santa (Taya Buntin, Abigail Guzzi, Ben Sullivan, Katelyn Guzzi, Nate Buntin, and Alex Sullivan) by Robyn Hatch Salemhaven was honored to have gentlemen from the Salem and Cambridge Timberland stores to help out with bingo games. For these employees, this was a day of community service associated with the Timberland organization, not the two malls for which they belong. The people loved the help they gave, from helping with the numbers to laughing and spinning the number machine. They have been at Salemhaven several times and the house guests look forward to each visit. Bingo ends up being something not to be missed when this kind of attention is given. Great job, Timberland!

Salem Christmas Fund
Families in Need Benefit from Christmas Fund
by Andrea Ganley-Dannewitz Lee is a single mother with two minor children, ages 16 and 7 years. Newly divorced and trying to refinance the family home has put a major strain on her financial situation. “I injured my hand and am currently disabled. On top of the divorce and refinancing the home, I needed help with gifts for my children for Christmas. I applied for help last year and I just can’t say enough about how wonderful this program is,” said Lee. Two years ago, Lee and her husband separated. Since then, she has been trying to make ends meet on very little income. Her family is just one of many within the community that are struggling right now. The Salem Christmas fund really makes a huge difference in a family’s life by providing the extra help needed during the holiday season. “The program is unbelievable and the people are so wonderful. Last year was the first time I sought or even needed help. My family was provided with a Christmas food basket, turkey with all the fixings, and I mean everything—potatoes, cranberry sauce, fresh fruit, and vegetables. We were given vouchers for clothes for both my minor children, and I also went to the toy drive for gifts for my little one. Everyone there at both the food basket site and the toy drive was so patient, so sweet, and so caring!” Lee said. Lee is hoping to be able to assist others like her next year. She says even if she were unable to assist with money, she would love to help organize food baskets or help with the toy drive. “I hope this is the last year that I need help. Giving back what others give to you is the best feeling in the world. I even wonder during times like these where so many are struggling and unable to help, there are still those who have more than enough and are willing to give,” Lee added. The Salem Christmas Fund helps Salem residents in need of assistance during the holidays, and works in conjunction with Toys for Tots, which donates a portion of their collection to the Salem Christmas Fund. For those interested in donating unwrapped gifts to Toys for Tots, visit one of the many collection sites around town. For more information about the Salem Christmas Fund, contact Salem Health and Human Services at 890-2130, or visit their location at 287 Lawrence Road.
Boys & Girls Club Looks to Beat the Odds
submitted by Rachel Hill Today’s children face greater challenges and stresses than ever before. For over 40 years, the Boys & Girls Club of Salem has provided a safe, nurturing environment for all young people, especially those who need us most. Challenges such as making ends meet, a parent losing a job, health concerns, and the dropout rate, along with crime, drugs, and delinquency are just some issues our youths face. Without havens like Boys & Girls Clubs, children have fewer opportunities to receive positive guidance and support. People have a lot on their minds these days as they read headlines and hear troubling news about the state of our economy; the Club is no different. Take a drive down Geremonty Drive in Salem on any given day and you’ll see a vibrant, active, and busy Boys & Girls Club, and as a result, you may not even realize the challenges it’s facing. “This is the most challenging year since I’ve been here,” stated Chief Professional Officer Michael Goodwin. The economy that has affected so many families and businesses is now showing its effects on the Boys & Girls Club. “We are seeing the impact in our fee-based programs.” Those programs account for 30 percent of the Club’s $2.1 million annual budget and currently, revenues for after-school, before-school, and swim programs are down 14 percent, 40 percent, and 14.5 percent, respectively. The Club recently received news that its annual federal grant, originally expected to be $195,000 for this fiscal year, will only be $42,500. “That was a dagger in the heart,” Goodwin said, upon hearing the news regarding the grant allocation. The impact of unemployment, foreclosures, and bankruptcy has taken its toll on the community and increased demand for services. In spite of that increase in demand, the Club has seen drops in enrollment. “We are seeing more applications for financial aid and state aid, but there just aren’t any more funds to go around,” added Goodwin. The Club leadership remains positive that it can make the necessary changes to stabilize the budget and continue to provide the services to over 500 young people daily. “These are challenging times for everyone, but our board leadership is completely committed to this organization, and I feel strongly that we’ll be able to get through these difficulties,” stated Peter Rayno, the Club’s Treasurer. “The Club has such a positive impact and serves such a vital role in the community,” said Susan Covey, Chief Volunteer Officer. “The board is committed to ensuring that our impact on the families that rely on us remains strong.” Susan went

on to note that she felt strongly, in spite of the economy, that the community would rally around the Club and continue to provide the extraordinary support it has provided for over 40 years. This economy is forcing the Club to evaluate ways to more efficiently provide services. Michael Goodwin said, “We’ll be looking at many new ways to save money, both through becoming more efficient with our expenses and increasing revenues. I think going through tough times like this will have a positive impact on the Club going forward. We now have to look at fundraising in a whole new way. Diversifying our revenue streams and looking at new ways to do that. All ideas are on the table, such as Annual Campaigns, Direct Mail, Major Gifts, Planned Giving, and even new fundraising events. I think ultimately we’ll be lenox a stronger organization holly-day in the end.” bouquet One thing that is by teleflora clear, in spite of the economy, is that we should not lose sight of the fact that giving is a way for people and communities to pull together. The Club will continue to provide a safe and productive environment for thousands of young people in Salem. Now more than ever, the Club remains committed to providing critical youth programming services to the families of Salem.

Don’t Support the Public Option
When did America settle for a political elite? These politicians now in power created their over-average salaries, pensions for life, health care for life from their “à la carte” plans, fawned over and bribed by business, activists, and foreign governments. The penultimate is Barry Obama, the smiling agent of “fundamental change” in America. From his actions and policies, he is here to re-enslave America and make the evil middle class indentured servants of the State. Why? It is written that families will pay 16 to 25 percent of their gross income for DMV healthcare premiums, in addition to the current 28 to 39.9 percent of their net income for income tax. Combined with FICA, excise taxes, property taxes, and all the other taxes (20 percent of your phone bill is Gore Tax), the average dual-income earner family earning $100,000 will have a net income of $30,000. Thirty-thousand dollars for food, mortgages, car payments, school incidentals, vacations, a movie, and the rest of life. A $44,000 family of four pays 17 percent. In the current Obamacare Bills, Obama criminalizes normal behavior between you and your doctor. If you “don’t pay the premium,” you are a felon and there is 2.5 percent of your annual income as a fine. If it is determined that this is “willful non-payment,” then there is a $250,000 fine and up to five years in jail. If you try to spend money privately for treatment; once again, you are a felon and so is your doctor! The media happy talk about how this bill addresses current healthcare concerns is a pack of lies. 1. The Bills front-end the taxes by four years, during which the “public plan” has no effect. Therefore, there are only six years of costs and “no deficit.” Until year 11 and onwards. That is, unless the money was already spent by these statists. 2. You can keep your current plan. Only until Obamacare actually kicks in. After the imposition of the “public option,” private insurance is illegal. 3. You can keep your current doctor. Forty-five percent of doctors have announced they will resign if Obamacare is passed. Even if only 20 percent retire, the influx of 30 million new patients will eliminate your current ability to see your doctor. 4. The public option causes competition. Every time the government enters a market in this manner, it can dwarf the market because of deficit spending. With the average profit margin for a health care insurer at 8 percent, they don’t have room for no profit. By the way, banks average a 33-percent profit. 5. We can cut $500 billion from Medicare/ Medicaid with no changes in coverage. Wait— doesn’t the Baby Boomer bubble retire now? So coverage stays the same while retiree numbers increase and budget decreases? Math isn’t a bureaucrat’s best friend. The controversy over the “death panels” was true. However, the rules were embedded in the “Stimulus Bill” for creating the board that will evaluate treatments not based on outcome, but on cost effectiveness and age. If you are over 55, there will be a measurement of the numbers of average years left divided over cost for a
number. If this number is judged too high, then no treatment is recommended for the patient. By the way, don’t believe me—go read it in the bill. Right now, GovernmentCare – VA, Medicare, and Medicaid refuse treatments at twice the rate of insurance companies. Our current system allows choice. It does need work, but mostly to repair past travesties of government intervention. If we allow Obama to criminalize and nationalize our health, we only have ourselves to blame. Call or visit your representatives and tell them not to pass this bill. Bill Weimar - Salem

Massachusetts Woman Arrested on Identity Fraud Charges
by Andrea Ganley-Dannewitz Police in Salem arrested a Massachusetts woman last week after she attempted to withdraw $5,000 from a bank account not belonging to her. Nicole Read, 20, of Somerset, MA, went to the Bank of America at the Mall at Rockingham Park on November 24, attempting to make the withdrawal of funds, but the account had been flagged. Bank officials contacted Salem police, who responded to the incident. Police learned that a purse that was reported stolen in Boston, MA, was where the problem originated. Allegedly while police were speaking with Read, she insisted there was a misunderstanding, even going as far as to present the victim’s identification to police, claiming it was her. Salem police contacted the victim, who confirmed her purse had been stolen in Boston. Read was arrested by Salem police at the scene and then taken to Salem Police Department. She is facing two counts of felony identity fraud, receiving stolen property, and providing false information to law enforcement. She was held on $10,000 cash bail, pending arraignment at Salem District Court.

The Best Hidden Gem: Three Seasons Restaurant
by Andrea Ganley-Dannewitz The hustle and bustle of a busy kitchen, the aroma of delicious food wafting around you—this is what you will find at the Three Seasons Restaurant located at Salem High School. Robert Henry, instructor of culinary at Salem High School and fondly known as “Chef” by his students, is the leader at this very a tour of the kitchen, Theo explained how and why everything is organized in a certain way within the kitchen. “Everything made here – whether it’s potato chips, breads, or sauces – it is all made right here from scratch. We store all the ingredients here in this kitchen. Everything has its place and must be labeled, dated, and stored in its proper place. There is absolutely no risk of crosscontamination in this kitchen,” he said. In the kitchen, there is a schedule for the students to follow. Every week, students are assigned tasks to change things up a bit. “No one gets stuck doing the same thing all the time,” said Parks. “We all experience the same tasks at one point or another; there is no ‘designated dishwasher’ or anything like that. We all do our share.” Typical tasks in which the students share are food preparation, taking orders over the phone or walk-in, and handling reservations for the dining room, which was remodeled last year. The students work very well as a team and just like in a professional workplace, they treat each other with respect, creating a positive working environment. That is a plus to customers, as patrons at any restaurant want to be greeted with a smile and treated well by helpful and friendly staff. That is a guarantee any patron will find at the Three Seasons Restaurant. The culinary students at the Three Seasons are very proud of their work, as they should be. Their dishes can easily compete with any creation from any of the major and successful restaurants in the area. The general public really needs to liven up the dining room and experience what local students are churning out of this “secret kitchen.”
Cooking with Annibale Todesca
I created this dish with the flavor of my native country. It can be a succulent appetizer or a wonderful main course. And it can be made to your taste. Pan fry shrimp in extra virgin olive oil. Add spicy hot pepper (as desired). When the shrimp is cooked on one side, slice garlic and add it to the shrimp. Turn the shrimp and add roasted tomatoes. Add half of a squeezed lemon to pan. Add two tablespoons of marinara sauce, chopped basil, salt and pepper. Take two slices of bread and paint it with extra virgin olive oil; toast the bread on an open flame. Place the bread on a plate and add shrimps and toppings.
Annibale Todesca is a world renowned chef and owner of The Colosseum Restaurant in Salem, NH. From Napoli, Italy, to Salem, NH - How Italian Food Should Be!
special kitchen where culinary students are the staff and the magic behind the perfectly delicious meals being churned out of “Salem’s most secret kitchen.” It’s a best-kept secret because the students are missing one key piece to their culinary experience—customers from the general public. Did you know that regardless of what is offered on the menu, the cost is just $5? And the portions—boy, are they worth bragging about. Even a hearty appetite may not be able to finish every last bit on their plate. Worthy of a visit by the Phantom Gourmet is a nice way to sum it all up. On a typical day within the kitchen at Three Seasons, SHS staff, students in their senior year, and a few reservations made here and there are those being served. It is certainly not enough to really experience culinary at its best, and these students are eager to cook, serve, and watch people enjoy their culinary creations. Where is the public? Why hide from delicious food at such a great price? I visited with the culinary students on November 5 during BBQ Week, which was the week’s theme. (There is a new theme every single week.) The menu choices for this particular week were: build-your-own-burger, a quarter-pounder made your way (and not from Burger King); a bean burger as a vegetarian dish; or a BLT, all served with all the fixings, a side of Chef’s secret BBQ dipping sauce, and smoked red potatoes that please the palette. These students eagerly gave me a tour of their kitchen, explained their typical day, and talked about what they had learned, but really emphasized on how much they enjoy the culinary class. “Chef is a great leader,” said Joey Parks, a junior at Salem High School. “He really relates to us, he is helpful, he jokes around with us, and really provides us with ‘hands-on teaching.’ All of the students really enjoy his class. It’s fun, rewarding, and a good time.” While Parks and a fellow student, Theo Harb, provided me with

Historical Society Celebrates 95-Year-Old Member
by Robyn Hatch This month, the Salem Historical Society had a special meeting. The meeting’s speaker, Jeff Warner of Portsmouth, an American folk artist with many instruments and songs, entertained. At intermission, a surprise birthday party for Hattie Greenwood took place. Hattie, a very active member, was about to turn a young 95 in a couple of Hattie Greenwood with her surprise birthday hat, blowing days. All her friends from out her candles the Historical Society surprised her with a huge “elephant” cake, a pretty hat complete with candles, and a card signed from all the members. This was a special moment for all. Warner performs the music of America’s rural past: songs of Revolutionary War heroes; sea shanties and songs of work aboard wooden ships; African-American banjo tunes; Irish-American concertina tunes; songs of lumber camps; and ballads of old New Hampshire. His programs for young and old include hands-on fun with accessible rhythm instruments like bones and spoons. He has toured in 36 states for the Smithsonian Institution’s National Association Program. He has also been an artist for the Utah Arts Council’s Rural Touring Program, the Ohio Arts Council’s Arts-inEducation Program, and Young Audiences, Inc. of Massachusetts. His parents were early collectors of American folk songs, and he is an avid music scholar himself. He has released recordings of the music collected by his parents and CDs of his own collections, and he has researched liner notes for the State Arts Council Traditional Arts Program’s 2003 CD release “Songs of the Seasons.” In 2007, 258257 1-10-08.indd he received a prestigious Artist Fellowship award from the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts. His program is one not to be missed.

Reiki and the Healing Energy All Around Us
by Robyn Hatch Maria Medbery came to the Salem Senior Center and gave a nice, informative presentation on Reiki to the members. Reiki Energy is a hands-on healing modality that connects us with the healing energy all around us. Reiki Energy flows through the hands of the Reiki Practitioner into the recipient’s chakras (the body’s energy centers) and heals by releasing energy blockages, and raising the Lifeforce Energy. Life Force Energy animates all living beings, creatures and plants. Reiki is non-invasive; it is both gentle to receive, yet powerful in effect, as it stimulates the natural healing process in body, mind, and spirit. When your Life Force Energy is low or restricted in its flow, a person will be much more vulnerable to illness. Reiki helps maintain optimal wellness by increasing the life-force energy. During a Reiki Session, the recipient lies fully dressed on a massage table. Reiki treatments can also be given with the recipient sitting up. The Reiki Practitioner gently places his hands on or near the areas of the body needing attention as he directs the healing energy. The recipient may experience numerous sensations during a treatment, including warmth, coolness, tingling, lightness, heaviness, and/or vibratory energy emanating from the practitioner’s hands. No sensations at all may be felt but the Reiki Energy is still being transferred. Sensations may occur at the point of contact or elsewhere in the body. For example, the practitioner may place his hands on the recipient’s head, but the recipient feels a warm sensation in the stomach or left knee. The Reiki Energy will travel to where it is most needed in the body. A Reiki Session is very peaceful and nurturing, and often people feel a deep sense of relaxation similar to a meditative state after treatment. A Reiki Session can: Balance the body’s energy centers (chakras), reduce tension and stress, relax tense muscles, decrease the pain response, assist in the natural healing process, facilitate healing on all levels, create feelings of peace, invigorate, and re-energize the entire body. Again, what is Reiki? Reiki is a hands-on, Tibetan healing technique that utilizes Universal Life Force Energy. “REI” means Universal Life Force and “KI” means Energy (REI-KI). Reiki has been used to treat physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual disharmony since the Maria pointing out the areas that are affected by 1800s. A session may Reiki last from 30 minutes to 1 1/2 hours, depending upon the needs of the recipient. Everyone left this talk with a better understanding of Reiki, and many were anxious to give this treatment a try.
This is what Reiki is all about

submitted by North Salem School Lights, camera, action—Take Two! This year, the North Salem PTA is proud to present not one, but two movie nights! The first night will be held on Friday, December 4, for Grades K-2, and will feature the movie Up. The second movie night, for Grades 3-5, will be held on Friday, December 11, and will feature the movie Elf. On both nights, students will enjoy popcorn, water, and a few sweet treats provided by the PTA. Both movies nights will run from 6-8 p.m. in the school’s All-Purpose Room. Children are welcome to bring in their blankets or sleeping bags to view the movies. ‘Tis the season of giving, as they say, and what better way to give than to those who need it most. The North Salem Elementary School would like to thank all of our students who took a name from our annual “Giving Tree,” a program designed to help our North Salem families who may feel the burden of the economy, especially during the holiday season. This year, due to the generosity of our families, we have been able to “adopt” Salem’s Headstart Program as well. All students who have already selected a nametag are asked to bring in their gifts by December 10. Please attach the original nametag on the package so we know to whom the gift belongs. North Salem students will have the convenience of one-stop shopping this holiday season during the second annual Holiday Fair! Forget the long lines at the mall, and bring in your piggy-bank money all next week, December 7-11, when students will have the opportunity to select and purchase their own gifts for family members during regular school hours. There is no obligation to participate. A Holiday Fair budget envelope will also be sent home so that the parents and students can decide together for whom he/she will be purchasing gifts and how much money should be spent. Since this is not a fundraiser, all of the items are offered at great prices—most under $10. If you have already begun your holiday shopping, there is a way to buy gifts online and to help North Salem Elementary School at the same time. If you visit the school’s PTA Website, www. northsalempta.org, you will be able to click through to our affiliate programs and purchase items online with a portion of the sales going directly to our school. For example, for every purchase made on Amazon.com, the school will receive between 4 and 15 percent of sales based on the volume. So if you shop online already, you may as well go through the North Salem PTA website and help our school. As part of the school’s Character Counts program, students caught showing Fairness include: Shane D’Arcy, Nick Fili, Aaron Petkiewich, Katie Chartrain, Zachary Orlando, Veronica Kight, Anthony Bellomo, William Wainwright, Ryan Berringer, Billy Richardt, Austin Myrick, Nicholas Toupin, T.J.

Positive News from Our Business Community
Support Center for Domestic Violence and Save on Laser Services
For the past 25 years, the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center in Newburyport has been offering a growing list of services to not only support victims of domestic violence, but also to educate members of the community so that we can all come together to end domestic violence. Their services are designed to help victims through the process—from helplessness to hopefulness. The Center’s goal is to empower people to live free from fear, intimidation, violence, or the threat of abuse by providing support, advocacy, and education. Some of the services offered include: • A confidential, 24-hour crisis hotline • One-on-one counseling • Support groups with childcare • Help obtaining restraining orders • Legal and court advocacy • Emergency shelter • Children’s counseling and support groups • Teen dating violence education • Community outreach and education • High Risk Response Teams—collaborations with local police departments • Legal representation by staff or pro bono attorneys • Customized training and curriculum development In 2008, the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center served 978 victims of domestic violence. While it costs $22,000 per week to keep their doors open, state and federal funding provides less than 45 percent of the finances needed to provide services. Your donation will be greatly appreciated, especially during this holiday season, in light of the current economic environment. To learn more about the Center, go to www. jeannegeigercrisiscenter.org, or call 978-465-0999. All Care Laser Center is now offering 30 to 40 percent off select services with a donation of a $50 or $100 gift card from a gas station, grocery store, or Wal-Mart. All Care Laser Center offers solutions for wrinkles, excessive hair, brown spots, and cellulite. Carla Vara, the clinic director at All Care Laser Center, recently volunteered for a fundraiser at the crisis center and was so impressed with the staff, as well as the services offered at the Center, that she thought it was wonderful holiday promotion for All Care Laser Center to participate in. All Care Laser Center is one of the three businesses located at the Korbey Medical Arts building on Main Street in Salem collecting donations. Owner Dr. Azar Korbey is also accepting donations at All Care Medical and the newly expanded Express Med Walk-in Center.

Hannaford Helps Fight Hunger Program
Fund a Feast Boxes Allow Shoppers to Provide Essentials to Local Food Banks, Pantries
Hannaford Event Addresses Hunger in New Hampshire
Hannaford Supermarkets will increase awareness of the record number of people seeking support from food-assistance agencies in New Hampshire and throughout the Northeast during a December 4 event in Raymond. What: Hannaford Helps Fight Hunger Event Where: Hannaford Supermarket and Pharmacy, 2 Freetown Road, Raymond When: Friday, December 4, from 4-7 p.m. Activities: Food samplings hosted by representatives of Operation Frontline, a national nutrition education and financial literacy program. Frontline fights hunger by providing short- and long-term solutions in a fun, interactive, cooking-based format. The demonstrations will begin at 4 p.m. Check presentation of $5,000 from Hannaford to the New Hampshire Food Bank, in support of the Operation Frontline program. Presentations begin at 5 p.m. Hannaford Health Hero recognition to a local businessman who has helped feed hundreds of people through his generosity this year. A Hannaford nutritionist will be on hand to answer questions and provide information about how people can make healthy, affordable food choices. Prizes awarded to shoppers during activities designed to help people learn facts about the problem of hunger in New Hampshire. The event kicks off the second half of this year’s Hannaford Helps Fight Hunger campaign, which is raising money for food banks and pantries in New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, New York, and Vermont. Last holiday season, Hannaford and its customers raised more than $1 million through the program.
Hannaford Supermarkets is again making it easy for customers to donate to families in need during the holidays through the Hannaford Helps Fight Hunger program. A centerpiece of the initiative is Fund a Feast, which since November 1 has featured boxes containing food staples in all 171 Hannaford stores in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, and New York. Shoppers may purchase the boxes for $10 each and place them in a bin for distribution to local food banks and pantries. In return, customers receive a coupon book worth $50 in savings. “Fund a Feast lets people help their neighbors and receive value for their own families at the same time,” said Michael Norton, director of corporate communications for Hannaford. “The program offers a convenient way for our customers to give and to save.” Each Hannaford store selects a local pantry that will benefit from the Fund a Feast donations, and the program lasts as long as the boxes remain available. Last year, the sale of 90,000 boxes – filled with essentials such as tuna, pasta, canned vegetables, and soup – generated just under $1 million in goods for food pantries and soup kitchens in the communities Hannaford serves. More than 150,000 boxes have been collected since 2007. “There’s a whole meal in that box,” said Ginny White, director of Ginny’s Helping Hands Food Pantry in Leominster, MA. “If you don’t know what to give for the holidays, give a box of food from Hannaford to people who really need it.” Food pantries throughout the Northeast are seeing record numbers of people seeking help because of the slow economy. Preble Street, which operates Maine’s largest food pantry, has seen a 30-percent increase in demand from families and senior citizens. Talk to “At least 70 percent of them have never been to a food pantry before,” said Mark Swann, executive director of Preble Street, which is based in Portland, ME. “The work that Hannaford does is crucial to Talk to meeting that need.” The second phase of Hannaford Helps Fight Hunger will begin later Send your through December this month.

I believe it’s a ranch with about 15 acres of land to preserve it. I just wanted to say if the town has the money to purchase this property maybe they should buy all the properties they issued building permits to builders to build in the flood zones. Flood insurance is very expensive ($1600.00) and we get no tax breaks from the town for living in flood zones, just a lot of headaches. Image $1600.00 on top of your tax bill, the town should be a shamed of themselves. If there were no families living in these flood zones, the continuing flood problem would be less severe for families and the Town Of Salem, but the town is greedy and this will never happen because they want the revenue from the taxes.” “Thumbs up to the Town of Salem for letting our group restore the Salem Depot Train Station.

Tips for staying safe through the holiday season
solutions will make winter much safer - and more enjoyable - for you and any guests you might invite over. * Get the right gear - Clothing has to go to the next level in winter and serve a real purpose. Not only do you need added warmth, you have to have traction gear for ice and material that will keep out the dampness of snow, sleet and rain. Clothing technology has come a long way in helping us deal with winter. New, lighter-weight fabrics fend off sub-zero cold and all kinds of precipitation without adding bulk, which is great for everyone, but particularly for professionals who need to maintain dress standards at work. Most shoes just aren’t able to stand up to the conditions of winter, and become hazardous when the world is glazed with ice. Innovative
Even if you’re not driving through a blizzard, the effects of winter weather pose a mobility challenge for everyone, whether it’s the possibility of slipping on the sidewalk or delayed flights due to icy runways. Cold temperatures only add to the frustration of winter travel. It’s little wonder that some people forgo the fun of holiday gatherings to stay home. For seniors, in particular, the ice and snow of winter is more than a discomfort it’s a hazard. It’s so easy to slip and fall that many choose to stay inside, rather than take the risk of an injury from falling. Going outside to simply get the mail can seem like a chance they don’t want to take. The best way to face down winter and all its challenges is to think ahead and be prepared. A few simple
products like Stabilicers, ice cleats from 32 North, make any shoes into ground-gripping wonders. A variety of Stabilicers models are available. The Stabilicers Lite is adaptable to a wide variety of casual shoes and can be put on using only one hand. Plus, they’re small and easy to stash, so you can easily carry them with you when you travel. * Prepare your car - Winter driving poses its own unique challenges and needs. First, make sure your car is ready by checking that its fluids are temperature-appropriate and up to the correct levels, its wheels are in good alignment, its tire treads are in good condition, and that its battery, belts and hoses are in good shape. Whether you’re driving long distances to visit the family or just heading to work, it’s a good idea to keep an up-to-date emergency kit in the vehicle in case you become stranded. Include good jumper cables - if the ones you have are getting worn, spring for a new pair because if you get caught in the cold with a dead car, they will be your ticket home. Also include blankets, a flashlight, flares, a first aid kit, a small shovel, a window scraper and a bag of something that will help you gain traction, like kitty litter, sand or salt. Extra hats and gloves can be handy, too, as can small, non-perishable snacks like energy bars or granola bars. * Pay attention to your property - It’s important to keep a close eye on your gutters, steps and sidewalks, even when you’re not in the middle of a snow or ice storm. Make sure that icicles aren’t forming, or if they have, knock them down (carefully) to avoid damage to your home and to prevent them from falling on anyone. If ice forms on your walkways, keep ice melt, sand or salt near the door so you can easily distribute it and prevent slips and falls. When the snow starts to fall, be sure to shovel regularly. If you’re a city dweller, your neighbors will thank you. If you’re not, you’re taking steps to protect yourself and any visiting guests. The Stabilicer ice cleats can also come in handy while you’re doing these chores, giving you better traction to make the job quicker, so you can get back in out of the cold.

Create coupons that are redeemable for your time, whether it be baby-sitting, a date, or shoveling snow.

by Chris White With a loss to Manchester Memorial in the semifinal round last March, the Salem boys’ basketball team will return to the hardwood this winter with one thing in mind: win a state title. After winning back-to-back state championships in 2007 and 2008, the Blue Devils are hungry to return to excellence. The team will embark on its quest for its third championship in four seasons starting on Friday, December 18, at home against Nashua North. Until then, the Devils will play in a number of preseason scrimmages to prepare for the season. Preseason contests include match-ups against Haverhill, North Andover, Campbell, and Pelham. The Blue Devils return a handful of players who made significant contributions last season. They will be led by senior captain Alex LaRosa. The third-year varsity member will run the team’s offense as the starting point guard and be the first scoring option. Many of Salem’s offensive sets will run through him. “Alex has been a leader in every category for

us,” head coach E.J. Perry said. “He will have to get a lot of points and defend well this season. He was doing it towards the end of last year and we’re looking for him to do it again this year.” Senior Kyle Henrick and junior Joe Gallant are two more returning starters who will patrol the inside for Salem. Henrick is expected to act as the team’s enforcer and keep big men from opposing teams off the glass. His role last season included mostly rebounding and setting screens. This year, however, the all-state football defensive lineman will have an expanded role on offense as the team’s third scoring option. He will score points by using his ability to get to the basket and help the team’s offense. Gallant, who worked hard on improving his post-game over the summer, is ready to become a consistent force on both ends of the floor. “Joe needs to become a dominant player,” Perry said. “He’s going to have to finish on the inside and rebound at both ends.” Matt Cannone, who quarterbacked Salem to a football state championship this fall, will look to work his way into the starting line-up this season. The versatile wingman came off the bench last season and showed the ability to shoot the ball well. The junior is also capable of driving to the basket and can play almost any position, including point guard. He has also proven to be one of the team’s most respected leaders. The Salem roster also features two lesser-known players that dedicated to improving their games this past summer, and could potentially make an impact this season. Junior Jeff Meisser has improved his ball handling and shooting, and will now look to be a steady option at the point guard position for Perry. Meanwhile, Mike Lorenz, also a member of the Blue Devil football team this fall, focused on bettering his inside game and will help Salem in the rebounding and defensive departments. Marcus Baldwin is also an impact player who will return to the team this season, while Jake and Zach Matthews will add depth to the team’s roster. With tryouts starting this past Monday, there are still a number of players still fighting for positions on the varsity team. Captain Alex LaRosa will run the point for Salem this season. This season, the Blue Devils will look to run the break in order to get easy baskets when they can. When the opportunity is not there in transition, they will pull it out and run their offensive sets. The offense will look to threaten from both inside and outside. LaRosa, Cannone, and Meisser will provide scoring threats from deep, while Gallant, Henrick, and Lorenz look to do damage inside.
Versatile Girls’ Basketball Squad Looks to Improve on Last Season’s Record
by Chris White After a first-round playoff exit last season, the Salem girls’ basketball team looks to come back strong this year with seven players returning. An 11-7 regular season record made it difficult for the Blue Devils to advance well into the playoffs last March, as they were matched with Dover on the road in the opening round. This year’s team will look to better its regular season mark from a year ago to achieve favorable position in the Class L standings, which will ideally translate into post-season success. The team has been practicing together since November 23, and will open the season on Saturday, December 12, with a road game against Manchester Central. The Blue Devils are scheduled to play two pre-season scrimmages before then. One will be at home against Trinity and the other will be at Lawrence. So far, the Salem players have collectively shown a good attitude, tireless work ethic, and high basketball IQ in pre-season practices. “This is already one of the smartest teams I’ve coached,” head coach Liz Briggs said. “They’re coachable, and they listen and adapt well. They try to implement your coaching.” Briggs will look to her seniors for leadership this season. Olivia Connors, Nora Galvin, Amanda Vaudreuil, and Sarah Raye are all seniors who had significant experience playing on the varsity squad last season. Juniors Gina Righini and Jen Bujnowski also return from last year’s team, along with sophomore Kerry White. Salem will feature five new players this season. Juniors Kelly Forrest, Kelly Nolan, and Johana Rodriguez will be eager to take advantage of their opportunities, while sophomores Steph Long and Sammi LaRosa will provide depth for the squad. The team will not have a definitive go-to player, but each athlete offers something that contributes to a steady inside-out combination. Salem will find strength in Connors on the inside at both ends of the floor. Bujnowski, who has improved greatly, will also look to make an impact down low. Both players have shown the ability to create inside. Righini, Galvin, and Vaudreuil will give the Blue Devils a few outside shooting threats while making other contributions from the perimeter. Meanwhile, White has played solid in practice and will give Salem a consistent shooting option on the wing. The Blue Devils will focus on playing to their strengths and take what their opponents give them this season. They will first look to push the ball up the floor and create opportunities for easy lay-ups. If they cannot convert an easy basket, they will fall into their half-court offense. The half-court offense is one facet of the game that the team needs execute in order to be successful, Briggs said. Personnel-wise, the pieces are in place for a winning season. The team’s versatility and ability to adapt well to different situations will be major assets in trying to win games. “We’ve never had a really strong combination of both inside and outside before,” Briggs said. “We could have it this year.”
Senior Olivia Connors will look to be a consistent force on the team this winter.
