The Cougar Den Celebrates Multiple Successes as Ladies Win

Hudson Budgets
One Step Closer
to March Voting
by Len Lathrop
While all budget committee meetings are open to the
public, Thursday saw the Community Center being used for
the official public hearing that is required under SB2. SB2,
officially known as RSA 40:13, set up the process for towns
who have elected this form of government to get questions to
the ballot. The next step is the deliberative sessions held for
the town on Jan. 31 at 9 a.m. and for the school district on
Feb. 7, also at 9 a.m. Voting will take place Tuesday, Mar. 10
from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the community center.
During Thursday’s meeting only two people from the
public spoke. About 40 to 50 people were there, but in
looking around the room, most were folks who already were
involved in the process from town department heads to school
principals and support staff, as well as school board members.
Both the town and school district had prepared a handout that
listed the warrant articles and the school side also provided an
overview (some information) of each.
Starting with the school ballot, Chairman Jasper read the
article, asked for public input and then took a motion from a
committee member to recommend the article on the ballot.
Two members of the public spoke during the hearing: School
and Town Moderator Paul Inderbitzen asked the budget
committee to make information about the warrants and their
review available to the voters. Also making comment was
Library Trustee Ellen Stokinger who, during the discussion of
the town article 8, Wages and Benefit Increase for Non-Union
Full Time Employees of Rodgers Memorial Library, said that
these employees are paid 14% less than similar employees
in other towns. Chairman Jasper reminded people of the
deliberative session and the voting as he closed the meeting.
When you vote in March you will see whether the budget
committee supported the warrant article or not.

School: six warrant articles with monetary impact
Warrant Article 1 – Operating Budget
Shall the Hudson School District raise and appropriate as
an operating budget, not including appropriations by special
warrant article and other appropriations voted separately, the
amount set forth on the budget posted with the warrant as
amended by vote at the first session, totaling $50,038,709?
Should this article be defeated, the operating budget shall
be $48,845,932 which is the same as last year, with certain
adjustments required by previous action of the Hudson School
District or by law; or the governing body may hold one special
meeting, in accordance with RSA 40:13X and XVI to take up a
revised operating budget only.
Estimated tax rate impact: $14.17
Recommended by the School Board 5-0
Recommended by the Budget Committee 8-3
Warrant Article 2 – AFSCME Contract (school leadership)
Shall the Hudson School District vote to approve the cost
items included in the collective bargaining agreement between
AFSCME Local 1906 Council 93, AFL-CIO and the Hudson
School Board which calls for the following increases in salaries
and benefits at the current staffing levels over the amount paid
in the prior fiscal year:

The Campbell gym is getting very full of state

The game against Prospect Mountain High
School began the second half and a different Ladies
Cougar team took the court and controlled all
aspects of the second half with the final score being
CHS 57 and PMHS 38. Neild led scoring with 21
points followed by Lexi Putzlocker with 14. Both
Kali Trunca and Emily Moreau had six and were
followed by Amber Gibbons with five, Gabi Scot
with three and Jess Manning with two.
After the game, Principal Laurie Rothhaus paid
high compliments to Hannah remarking “how she
set the court on fire as a freshman…she is a leader
at Campbell, she has confidence and (she) always
gives 100 percent. She is that all-American girl.”

Unified Theatre’s Variety Show Entertains at Alvirne
by Shannon Lindsay
On Dec. 19 and 20, Alvirne High School’s
Unified Theatre group held its first show, a
holiday variety show with a heartfelt storyline
running throughout it. The show was held in
Alvirne’s new theatre room, Theatre 3.1.1.,
and was a huge success with both days being
completely sold out; people even had to be
turned away at the door.

Wow, what a night in Litchfield: a 1,000-point scorer, a
state championship banner raising and a sound thumping
of Prospect Mountain High School. Where to start ... the
focus seemed to be on the 12 points that Hannah Neild
needed to reach 1,000 career points as a Cougar.
The countdown was posted above the mats at the end of
the court. Family and friends, and even her future college
coach, were there holding placards with 1,000 on them.
You could see the 1,000-points pressure on Neild. The
baskets just were not dropping for her, and with every
miss, there was a moan from the fans.
But at the start of the second quarter, things begin to turn
around. With about three seconds left in the half, Neild
moves from the right across the box with a left-handed
layup; there it is a foul and she is going to the line. With

Remember Hudson when ...
Town House at Hudson Center
submitted by
Ruth Parker
In 1857,
Hudson
contracted
with William
Anderson of
Windham to
erect this Town
House on the
site of the Old
North Meeting
House in
Hudson Center.
The North
Meeting House
was deeded to
the town by the
Baptist Society
after the Baptist
Church was
completed in
1841. Town
meetings were
held here until
the mid 1930s
when there
was a desire
among the
townspeople
to hold meetings at the bridge area. Wattannick Grange held
their meetings here. In 1963 the town authorized the sale of
the building to Wattannick Grange. To the right of the Town
House is Harvey Lewis’ Coal Grain and Grocery; on the left

The Word Around Town...
Letters to our Editor

President Obama Went AWOL
On January 11, 2015, 40 leaders from various
countries and 1.3 million people participated in antiterrorism events in Paris. President Obama was AWOL,
and he was only represented by our ambassador to
France.
It is difficult to believe our President overlooked the
need to be in Paris for the anti-terrorism rally. Based on
his previous comments it is quite possible he decided he
did not want to offend Islam by appearing at the antiterrorism unity march.
In the past he has refused to label the multitude
of attacks conducted by Muslims as Islamic terrorist
attacks. He said “we are not at war with Islam,” but it
sure appears Islam is at war with us. After all, what is
the religion of almost every terrorist who has attacked
Western civilization in the past 50 years?
President Obama, you just offended every freedom
loving person in the world.
Donald A. Moskowitz, Londonderry

Dealing with the Rising
Costs of Living
Recently, we voted for a new regime in the hope that
there would be immediate changes to make life better.
And looking forward to the New Year, we waited to hear
how the various newly elected officials would begin to
make life better.
Surely there would be an increase to help with the
rising cost of living. And suddenly, within a week of the
New Year, reality is hitting. During the week between
Christmas and New Years, I received a mailing from the
Social Security Administration, boasting how the new
COLA would grant me an immediate increase of $24
beginning on January 1, 2015. And that sounded good
until another week passed.
Already in this New Year, I have seen increased costs
that are going to eat up the great COLA increase. I
learned that my average electric bill has increased from
the usual $65 to $75 per month year around; and is
now $99.10 for January 2015. There went my $24
increase. But the same day I received a letter telling me

DAR Chapter Donates to Veterans
submitted by Caitlin Smith, Daughters of the
American Revolution
The members of the Matthew Thornton Chapter,
Daughters of the American Revolution, presented
handcrafted fleece lap robes, as well as warm
socks, mittens and personal miscellaneous care
items, for distribution to the veterans at the

VA Medical Center in Manchester. Candy, gift
cards and monetary donations were also given.
Throughout the year, but especially during the
holiday, the chapter honors those who serve
our country. For information about joining the
daughters of the American Revolution, visit www.

that Comcast was going to have to increase my monthly
bill by $4.96. And here it is just one week into the New
Year with my great COLA increase of $24 already eaten
up by increased costs of living which at this rate will
consume $360 of my annual income. We hear rumors
that many other living costs including food and heat are
coming, yet.
Is there going to be any way to make up this
continuing reduction in Soc. Sec. Income, which was
designed to prevent us from falling behind?

students. I would like to thank Mathew and Christie
McQuesten, Dick and Dianne Jerry, Joan Taylor and
Linda Peoples for their tireless efforts while screening
our students in grades 1-4. This group of volunteers
work around our limited space needs at GMS and
completed their screening without complaint.
The GMS PTO provided breakfast snacks for our

Last, but not least, The Litchfield Lion’s Club
surprised my community by singing Christmas carols
at Annnadale this year. They were full of holiday spirit
and brought cheer to many residents. A special thank
you to the “Lions Club singers.”
Thank you to our Litchfield Lions Club for all you
do for our community,

I would like to start by noting that Litchfield
residents are fortunate to have the Litchfield Lions Club

supervises is paid.
Have you been into Massachusetts lately and noticed that gas
is cheaper there? They have the same federal gas tax and a lower

Piece of the Pie

The Tax Return- Your Annual
Financial Checkup

W.F.Boutin EA - Total Tax Solutions LLC

I am happy to participate in The Area News Group’s “Maintaining
Your Piece of the Pie” series once again this tax filing season. Over the
next several weeks, I will be presenting a series of articles that will
cover various aspects of the income tax return. The articles will dissect
the income tax return, define certain terminology and discuss benefits
available in the tax code to lower your taxable income. My intent
remains to bring to the fore the multiple options taxpayers have to
enact informed decisions regarding their upcoming expenditures.
Hopefully helping them plan for their financial future in these
challenging times. This year I will start off the series concentrating on
changes in the tax law as a result of The Affordable Care Act, affectionately known as "Obamacare".
As I am sure you are aware by now, The IRS has announced that they
will start accepting returns on Jan. 20th this year. This is in spite of the
fact that Congress once again waited until year's end to pass The Tax
Increase Prevention Act of 2014 which extended certain deductions
and tax benefits that had expired at the end of 2013. I still urge
taxpayers who may be ready to file prior to this date to schedule a time
to have their taxes prepared. Then once the IRS does go online, you
returns will be in queue for acceptance.
At Total Tax Solutions we view the preparation of the income tax
return as a time for an annual financial checkup. The tax laws are
complicated and confusing to many individuals. Each taxpayer’s
situation is unique and might change from year to year. The income tax
return itself is very complex since a minor change in one area of the
return can affect several other areas of the return. Certain transactions
that occur during the year can cost you much more than you anticipated. This is because of the affect an increase in total income can
have on certain deductions and credits that have phase-out limits.
Of course I recommend that you have your taxes professionally
prepared so that you can: 1) ask questions pertaining to your return: 2)
understand your options to lower your taxes for the next year and 3)
have someone who you can call if a particular situation should arise
during the year. With your previous year’s data in our computers we
can give realistic advice instead of assumptions. Many of our clients
take advantage of this service which is included in their one time
preparation fee.
I realize that not all returns are so complicated as to require professional preparation. Self preparers however should consider having their
taxes professionally prepared at least once every 3 to 4 years.
Tax preparation software is not intelligent software. The software
simply adds and subtracts data inputs and makes it's calculations
based upon yes or no answers from a list of generic questions. The user
cannot interact with the software by asking questions, and must spend
time reviewing tax law, to answer the proposed questions correctly.
Having a return professionally prepared once every fourth year gives
the self preparer the opportunity to verify their understanding of the tax
laws, allows them to ask pertinent questions pertaining to their unique
situations, and most important, gives them the peace of mind that they
have fulfilled a financial checkup.
Mistakes made on previous returns have a three year window for
amendment. Many mistakes that we have found over the years would
have cost taxpayers much more than a professional tax preparation fee.
Over the past several years many of our first time clients had errors on
their previous year’s returns. These clients benefited from amended
returns with refunds of $250 to $3000 because of these filed errors.
The errors we found were not only from self prepared returns but
returns prepared for fees as well. In many cases these errors were not
only from an interpretation of tax law but from inexperience. When
having your tax returns professionally prepared, do not hesitate to ask
for references and question the experience of your tax preparer.

A Great Place for Breakfast, Dinner or Drinks

NORTH SIDE

GRILLE

The North Side Grille is a warm, inviting, neighborhood restaurant
owned by Roger and Lauren Soulard, which opened in August.
Starting out with breakfast seven days a week, the restaurant has
evolved into a full pub with dinner five nights a week.
North Side Grille has an easy-to-read menu of appetizers,
sandwiches, wraps, burgers, homemade soups, chowders, seafood
and dinners. Of course daily breakfast shines through with eggs,
pancakes, French toast, and all the homemade creations that come
from those fresh ingredients.
The new Back Room – a full-service bar with TVs, intimate tables,
and locally crafted beers, both bottled and on tap, a full drink
menu, and fine wines, is quickly becoming a favorite hangout spot
for locals. North Side is also adding local spirits to the drink mix -check out more info at #drinklock.
“We wanted to create a place that’s comfortable for the guys to
come for an after-work celebration, or a couple to enjoy a nice
evening out,” explained Roger.
North Side Grille will be open every night of the week after
New Year’s Day and they look forward to expanding the menu and
specials to accommodate the daily dinner crowd; and you can still
expect a mouthwatering, slow-roasted prime rib on Saturdays.
“We know there are many local dinner choices,” continued Roger.
“We understand our food, people, and atmosphere has to be special
to make it in today’s restaurant climate. We ask that you come
check out North Side Grille and see if we’ve created a place where
everybody will know your name.”

Snapped Utility
Pole Leads to Road
Closure
submitted by Hudson Police Department
On Jan. 12 at about 1:30 p.m., Hudson Police
responded to Ferry Street at Library Street for a report
of a motor vehicle accident. The Hudson Department
of Public Works was clearing the sidewalk of residual
snow/ice on the north side of Ferry Street at the corner
of Library Street with a Bobcat loader. A top portion
of the Bobcat loader caught a guy wire (a tensioned
cable designed to add stability) from a utility pole at that
location. The top of the pole snapped, causing a hazard.
There were no injuries in the accident, but the pole
needed immediate replacement.
Utility crews were on scene accessing and repairing
the pole at the time of this release. Ferry Street is part
of Route 111 in Hudson and is heavily traveled during
the evening commute. Ferry Street was closed at Library
Street on Jan. 12 but re-opened at midnight.
The cause of the collision is still under investigation.

Monday morning, Jan. 12 was just any normal day for Joey
Polewarczyk, Jr. He was at work turning wrenches at his familyowned shop at Poles Automotive in Hudson, less than 24 hours
Brands
High Efficiency Hot Water Boilers , Furnaces & Water Heaters All
Available
after returning from the American Canadian Tour Championship
603-635-2012 Senior Discounts 603-204-8581 Banquet in Burlington, Vt., where he collected top honors and was
crowned the 2014 ACT Champion.
The 25 year old also humbly accepted the Don
MacTavish award. Each year, the American Canadian
Tour awards a person or group with the prestigious
MacTavish Award at its annual year-end Banquet
of Champions. The award is given for outstanding
contribution in the field of stock car racing and named
in honor of MacTavish for his contributions to New
England racing and is arguably the highest honor given
to any racer in the Northeast.
“I am so
surprised and
honored to
have been
chosen for this
prestigious
award. The
importance
of the award
is not lost on
me and this is
something that
will stay with
me always,”
said Joey.
MacTavish was considered to be the first representative
from the Northeast who had the potential to make it
big in auto racing before losing his life in a race at
Daytona in 1969. Past recipients of the award have
included Bill France, Sr. (1969) NASCAR founder and
Ken Squier (1972) NASCAR Hall of Fame announcer
from CBS and MRN radio.
Joey is the youngest person to ever have been
presented with this award and deservingly so. He is
the only driver to have won all of the “big money”
races in the Northeast: the Oxford 250, the ACT
Invitational at NHMS, the International 500, the Milk
Bowl and the Fall Foliage 300. Joey can now add the
ACT championship and the MacTavish award to his
résumé.
At the young age of 25 he has accomplished more
than most could ever imagine. “I would go watch
these races with my dad and dream of just being able
to attempt to qualify for some of these events. To
have won them all is beyond words, and I can’t thank
everyone enough who has supported my along the
way.”
Even with all of his
success Joey still strives for
more as he looks forward to
2015. “We need to improve
our Super Late Model
An Association Montessori International school for children ages 3 to grade 9
program from 2014 and can
always still improve on our
Late Model program. We
just got back from Five Flags
Speedway in Pensacola (Fla.)
with the SLM where we were
fast but ran into some bad
luck,” Joey said. The 97NH
team is looking to go back
to New Smyrna Speedway
in Florida on Feb. 16 and 17
for the American Racer Cup
to pick up where they left
off the last time the ACT tour
was there in 2011: victory
lane.

“Thumbs down to 2016
proposed town/school
budgets and employee
wide raises plus the
anticipated increases in
town assessment values
of homes that will go into
effect next year. Homes
reassessed due to values
increasing, says the
town. Median anticipated
tax increase anywhere
between $300-$550.
Town stated homes have
increased in value by
about 30k-50k If we do
not vote and speak up this
is the total tax increase for
the median home-price
we could expect to seeincluding voted in-warrant
articles. Homes for sale
prices are decreasing on
realtor websites.”
“Thumbs down to
entitlements. Social
Security and Medicare
need to be phased out.
They are a tool for political
manipulation, a weight on
the economy and the root
of the nanny state in this
country. Properly done,
there would be no more
misery and death than
there is already.”
“Thumbs down to
the use of rags in the
cafeterias. GMS and LMS
have been hit with so
much sickness, anything
to do with the dirty filthy
water our monitors are
continually wiping down
the tables with? They
should not have to do
this. Parents we are being
forced to now send in
wipes to keep our kids
healthy? Whose decision
is this?”
“Thumbs down to the
teacher complaining about
expectations from parents.
We entrust you with the
education of our children.
We have the right as tax
payers to expect nothing
less than a teacher’s best,

that our children
are being taught

the best out of our
children and to
see them succeed.
The remedy for
that is not to ship
them off to private
schools so you
don’t have to deal
with them. But
thanks for inferring
that the public
schools are not on
par with the private
schools. Sounds
like an indictment

about the Budget
Committee. You
should be more
upset with the
disorganized
administration.
I’ll give you an
example: there
will be a warrant
article to repave the
playground area at
GMS. Then why
did they put up a
fence that will have
to come down to
do that work? If
you’re going to
throw shots at
people, aim in the
right direction.”

Matt DiPrizio, along with solid goaltending, kept the game scoreless.
Unfortunately the same couldn’t be said for the second period, in
which Concord scored three times on 19 shots. Concord had a relentless
attack, and, when they finally scored the first goal on Richall, they
seemed to smell blood and attack harder, while Alvirne-Pelham seemed
to lose steam. The third was filled with penalties; even strength play
was not the norm in this one. The Avalanche finally got on the board
in the third, when Bryce Blanchard made a centering pass to Brendan
Parent. The puck bounced off of Parent, but Cam Richall picked up the
loose puck and slid the puck by the Concord net minder. Shortly after
that, defenseman DiPrizio carried the puck down low from the point and
fired home the unassisted goal. The success was short lived as Concord
grabbed two more goals to seal the deal.
The schedule doesn’t get any easier with Londonderry Jan. 15, Nashua
North Jan. 17 and Pinkerton Jan. 24. Welcome to D1 hockey.

Avalanche #16 Doug Herling brings the puck out of their end.
It was a tough week for the Avalanche last week, losing back-to-back
games to Bishop Brady and Concord. The team has struggled at both
ends of the ice; they aren’t generating enough offense and the defense
is giving up too many opportunities for their opponents. You should see
some line changes in the near future in an effort to boost the offense. The
leaders of the team, Cam Blake, Pat DeVito, Bryce Blanchard and Brett
Pitre, are expected to start putting the puck in the net soon.
Wednesday, Jan. 7 (Game 1 after the holiday break) vs. Bishop Brady
This was a game that the Avs could/should have won. The Avs outshot
Bishop Brady 32-20 in the 2-0 loss. Many of the shots were great scoring
chances in which the Brady goalie came up big. There was no puck luck
for the Avalanche in this game. Brady capitalized on a couple of mistakes
made by the Avs. In the first period, as one of the Avs defensemen tried
to fire the puck behind his net, he hit the side of the net and the puck
bounced right in front of Avs goalie Curtis Richall. The Brady player
grabbed the loose puck and shot it on Richall for the 1-0 lead. The score
remained the same until late in the third when the Avs defensemen were
attacking offensively. The puck bounced out of Brady’s zone and the
Brady player went in alone on Richall; he shot the puck over Richall’s
glove for the score. With the goalie pulled for the extra attacker, the Avs

best effort in the third quarter. Broncos Coach Brian
Lynch had Alvirne switching between a full-court trap
defense and falling back into a zone. The Broncos
outscored Nashua North 17-8 in the quarter. Ten
of their points were off of Titan turnovers. “George
Notini and Connor Hodson were key players for
us on defense in the third quarter,” Coach Lynch

two weeks earlier.
The Broncos jumped to an 18-13 first-quarter lead
largely due to the three-point shooting
of George Notini, Sam Bonney-Liles (2),
and Evan Hunt. Tyler Janko, Notini and
Hunt were key first-quarter players limiting
Nashua North to just one shot opportunity

The Campbell High School boys’ Basketball team set the
tone for the New Year with a pair of solid victories.
On Tuesday, Jan. 6, the Cougars hosted Sanborn
Regional High School. Campbell maintained a lead
throughout the contest thanks to a strong defensive effort.
Zach Bergeron led the offense with 17 points. Teammate
Harrison Vedrani scored 16 points. Kyle Shaw collected
nine points in the contest. The Cougars earned their first
win of 2015, 61-46.
On Friday night, Jan. 9, the Cougars traveled to Alton
to play the Prospect Mountain Timberwolves. Following
a slow first quarter, Campbell’s offense came alive in
the second quarter. The Cougars led 39-22 at the half.
Bergeron, again, led Campbell with an impressive 28-point
performance. Vedrani scored 19 points in the game while
teammate Michael Gray earned 13 points. The Cougars
mauled the Timberwolves, 83-51, to stay perfect in the
New Year and improve to 4-1 on the season.
Campbell traveled to face Hopkinton High School on
Monday, Jan. 12. Despite trailing 33-26 at the half, the
Cougars came out revitalized in the third quarter and tied
the game, 44-44. At the conclusion of regulation, the
teams were still stuck in a stalemate, 54-54. In overtime,
Campbell finally overcame Hopkinton, 64-62, in an
exciting finish.
Vedrani scored 18 points to anchor the Cougar offense.
Andrew Smarse collected 15 points. Bergeron and Shaw
each scored 14 points apiece. The Cougars return to the
court on Friday, Jan. 16 at home against Belmont High
School.

were able to maintain our lead throughout the
quarter. Our guards did a really good job moving
