‘Beauty and the Beast’ Graces HMS Stage

To the delight of the Hudson community,
Hudson Memorial School brought to life
Disney’s version of “Beauty and the Beast”
on March 13 and 14.
Originally based on an 18th century
French fairy tale, written by Jeanne-Marie
Leprince de Beaumont, the show reminded
the audience of several key and timeless
messages, like don’t judge a book by its cover
and always be yourself.
The show features the relationship between
the Beast (Jake Apitz), a prince transformed into a
monster by an enchantress’ spell for his arrogance,
and Belle (Sophia Garas), the independent and
lovely village bookworm. While the Beast initially
imprisons Belle in his castle, the two grow to
understand and love each other.
“Beauty and the Beast” is primarily played out
in Belle’s small French renaissance village and the
nearby castle, where all have been caught for the
last 10 years in an enchantress’ spell – the prince
as a beast and his servants as household items.
Key players in the lively village included Belle’s
father, an eccentric inventor named Maurice
(Murray Reynolds); the brutish and arrogant
Gaston (Christopher Graham), who plots to
marry Belle; his humorous side-kick, Lefou (Liam

Belle, Beast, and the castle servants.

Soto) and Monsieur D’Arque the warden (Tyler
Blanchette).
The enchanting castle ensemble were Lumiere
the candlestick (Jack Gasdia), Cogsworth the
clock (Becky Labrie), Mrs. Potts the teapot (Rachel
Hickey), her daughter Chip the teacup (Madailein
Lindsay), Madame De La Grande Bouche the
wardrobe (Madison Hoglund) and Babette the

maid (Kristina McCarthy).
Another exciting part of the annual HMS
musicals is bringing in all the Hudson 5th graders
to see the show during the Thursday morning dress
rehearsal. This not only gives the younger set a
‘sneak preview’ of the musical but also of the
middle school they will likely attend next year.
Fifth grader, Allyana, of Hills Garrison proclaimed

the show as “great!” Her classmate, Destiny,
simply added, “I loved it!”
The live pit orchestra, made up of more than 10
talented HMS and Alvirne musicians, also did a
marvelous job performing such favorite songs as
“Is This Home,” “Be our Guest,” “Something out
There,” and “Beauty and the Beast.”

No Mulligan for the School Budget
by Len Lathrop
After the vote was announced on Tuesday the
10th that the budget warrant article had failed, the
question arose, would the Hudson School Board
ask for the special election allowed under RSA
40:13X and XVI to take up a revised operational
budget? The question of what it would cost to
hold a re-vote had been asked earlier in the week.
The default budget of $48,845,932 is $1,192,777
less than the recommended budget.
This Monday’s school board meeting was about
an hour into the meeting when the elephant
in the room became the topic for discussion.
Superintendent Bryan Lane had prepared an

explanation sheet of facts not known in August
that would allow the revised budget going back to
the voters to be $434,503 lower than the original
budget. Lane mentioned it would have 16 cents
less tax impact.
Those revisions included two class adjustments
due to decreased enrollment, a second grade
at Hills Garrison and a first grade at the Early
Learning Center. With enrollment down at Alvirne
in foreign language, a staff sharing between AHS
and HMS would reduce a part-time position.
There is a new electrical rate contract saving
the district $75,000, and the new model for
staff development is showing a 10 percent

Alvirne’s Required Graduation
Credits Go to 23
by Len Lathrop
The school board vote has been taken.
Alvirne High School, for the first time in over
20 years, will be adjusting its graduation credit
requirements. School Principal Steve Beals,
accompanied by District Director of Counseling
Bill Hughen and Dean of Academics Sue Bureau
were in front of the Hudson School Board during
the Monday, March 16 meeting to seek approval
to implement a 23-credit graduation requirement.
Beals explained that House Bill 533 had
changed the math requirements to now require
a fourth year of math to receive a State of New
Hampshire diploma. This, in conjunction with
curriculum review and many new programs
that have been going on, his leadership team
is recommending an increase in graduation
requirements to 23 credits. To quote Beals, “a
simple goal is for all students to have better access
to our comprehensive high school offerings to
develop the important 21st-century skills that

we feel translate to success in higher education,
career readiness and throughout their lives.” While
academic requirements have been added in math
science and social studies the graduation credit
requirement has not changed with the modified
block scheduling. The high school leadership
team believes it was time to look at how Alvirne
High School aligns to other schools in the area.
Students need 20.5 credits for a Bronco
diploma, while respective schools in the area
are asking for more: Pembroke Academy
23, Londonderry 24, also with 24 are White
Mountains, Bow, Wilton, Bedford, Lin-Wood.
Beals outlined how this would affect the current
student population. There would be no change for
anyone graduating in this year in 2015 or for the
juniors graduating in 2016 as both would remain
at status quo of 20.5 credit hours. The current
sophomores, 10th graders scheduled to graduate
in 2017, would need 21.5 credit hours
continued to page 11- Credits

decrease. A 5 percent decrease in all supply
accounts, no additional furniture and elimination
of the following projects: AC units at Early
Learning Center conference room, Nottingham
West Elementary computer lab, stair tread and
lighting replacement at Alvirne, and VCT (vinyl
composition) tiles at the HMS cafeteria.
Mike Truesdell, who had just taken the
chairman’s seat of this new school board
configuration with Laura Bisson stepping down
from the board and Ben Nadeau being elected as
her replacement, at the beginning of the meeting
asked members for their opinions.
Stacy Milbour opened by saying, “it’s

complicated,” adding the voters have had their say
and that the board must respect how they voted.
Newest member Ben Nadeau, in his 20 years of
Hudson politics, commented that there has never
been a second vote and that it is “not worth going
down that road.”
When Truesdell asked Lane his thoughts, he
said: “We have to consider all options.”
There is a reason that a second election is
allowed and it should be considered. Still, a
famous quote is “Respect the will of the voters.”
Truesdell mentioned that there is no mulligan with
an election.

Remember Hudson When ...
Moore’s General Store c. 1949
submitted by Ruth Parker
Perhaps as early as 1888
Harvey Lewis began a longstanding tradition of a grocery
store in Hudson Center.
Moore’s General Store, at the
corner of Kimball Hill Road and
Hamblet Avenue, began about
1925 when Earl “Dinty” Moore
purchased the business from
Harvey Lewis.
Moore was a rural mailman
in town, but his family assisted
with operating the store.
Ownership remained with the
family, passing from Earl to his
son Kenneth. Later Kenneth’s
brother-in-law Morillo Post
entered the business. At that
time they enlarged the business
and added a barbershop and
second-floor apartments.
After the death of Morillo
in 1963 the business was sold to David and Robert Thompson,
both of whom had worked for the Moore Family in earlier years.
The Thompson Brothers operated the store at this location until
November 1969 when fire badly damaged the building. Rather
than rebuild on this site the Thompsons relocated their business

Legendary Locals of Hudson Book Launch
by the Hudson Historical Society
Legendary Locals of Hudson by Shawn and Laurie Jasper was released
by Arcadia Publishers on March 9. There will be a book launch at Rodgers
Memorial Library 194 Derry Road, on Sunday, March 22 from 2 to 4 p.m.,
where Shawn and Laurie will discuss the book and sign copies. The book price
is $21.99. Refreshments will be served.
All proceeds from books sold at the event will go towards the Hudson
Historical Society to assist in the restoration of two Mason and Hamlin reed
organs the society is fortunate to have in its collection. The older of the two
organs dates to about 1840 and was given to the society in 1980 by Victoria
(Ladner) Smith, while the second, larger organ dates to the mid 1850s and was
the very first organ purchased by and for The First Baptist Church in Hudson.
It was played by Dr. David O. Smith. Mrs. Leighton Drown donated it to the
society in 2007. A goal of $6,500 has been set for the restorations.

The Word Around Town...
Letters to our Editor

Is Ayotte Going Along
to Get Along?
I have lived in Litchfield, NH all my life. I was
raised and mentored by strong, fair-minded parents,
grandparents and others dedicated to honest public
service.
I am stunned by Kelly Ayotte’s weak-minded,
follow-the-leader poor judgement, agreeing to sign the
social media posting to the Ayatollah that amounts to
undercutting this country she professes to care about.
Where are her principles? As the saying goes: “With
great power comes great responsibility.”
It would seem that Ms. Ayotte is so anxious to find
herself on a national ticket, at some point, that she has
given away her honor and her scruples to go along to
get along, and her loyalty to big money factions. It’s
not the New Hampshire way. Shame on her.
Gail Barringer, Litchfield

Friends of Alvirne Ice Hockey
Hosts Charity Jamboree
Friends of Alvirne Ice Hockey will be hosting
the fourth Annual Charity hockey jamboree games
benefiting the food pantry at St. Vincent de Paul on
March 28 at 6:10 p.m. at Skate 3 rink in Tyngsborough,
MA. The game is free to the public and all are welcome
to come watch many former and current Alvirne hockey
players. We can accept cash and/or food donations to
St. Vincent de Paul at the game.
The Alvirne and Pelham hockey team just completed
its first season as a combined team and competed in
Division 1 this year. We look forward to many more
exciting Alvirne/Pelham High School hockey games.
The majority of the costs of the team are paid for
from player’s user fees and fundraising. An annual golf
tournament event was the first major fundraiser for the
team and has been a mainstay ever since to help pay for
the team’s expenses. A variety of other fundraisers are
done throughout the season to make it affordable for
any Alvirne or Pelham student to be able to participate
on the team. The players are looking to give back to the
community by participating and contributing to this
charity jamboree.
We would like to thank Skate 3 for donating ice
time again for the game this year. We would also like
to thank Frank Queen from Keller Williams Real
Estate for volunteering to referee the jamboree. We
also want to thank the local community and all the
businesses that have supported the team over the years.
The many parents and families of the players who
participate in the fundraisers and support the team in
so many ways deserve our gratitude as well. Thank
you to Len Lathrop and Mark Ayotte from the HLN
for photographing the team and its events through the
years.
We hope to see you at the fourth Annual Alumni
Charity jamboree games on March 28 at 6:10 at the
Skate 3 rink in Tyngsborough, MA.
Fran Boucher, Hudson

Showing a Commitment
to your Community
As we finally find some warmer weather and longer
days, I wanted to extend a thank you to the residents of
Hudson for their continued support. This support was
very evident on Tuesday, March 10, as I was privileged
to listen as the results of the election were read.
In a matter of a few minutes your commitment to

this community was clearly heard. Your support for the
renovation of the Lenny Smith Central Fire Station and
the replacement ambulance is greatly appreciated.
As we reviewed during the deliberative session,
the investment in Central Station will allow us the
opportunity to continue to provide emergency services
out of the Lenard Smith Central Fire Station for the
foreseeable future.
Your continued support of our EMS program is also
greatly appreciated. The new ambulance will continue
to provide us with the equipment necessary to ensure
we are delivering effective and efficient services to the
Hudson community.
Over the next few months we will review the
proposal for the construction of the new fire station on
Lowell Road. We will certainly look at the information
you provided us through your questions at deliberative
session and our public presentation. This information
will be examined and an after action report will be
generated to make sure we have a clear understanding of
your concerns.
In closing, I would like to thank the members of the
Hudson Fire Department for their efforts over the most
recent budget period. I would also be remised if I did
not take a minute to thank the Board of Selectmen and
the Budget committee for their continued support. If
you have any questions or comments regarding the
above mentioned projects or anything related to the Fire
Department, please feel free to contact me directly at
886-6021 or rbuxton@hudsonnh.gov.
Robert M. Buxton, Fire Chief, Hudson

Thumbs up
to the Heavenly Father
When I first read the March 6, 2015 thumbs down
writing about gay marriage, I wondered how people
would react. Three thumbs down letters came in
against the first one. The original one was against gay
marriage, but I will refer to it as same-sex marriage in
my letter.
This person quoted Scripture from the holy Bible one
– Talmud Genesis Rabbah 26:5:42 – Matthew 24:8 and
Genesis 6:5.
I went to my computer and typed in “Talmud
Genesis through a babe 26:5:4” and proceeded to go to
two sites annomundi.com and www.scottlively.net and
read a spiritual eyeful of truth. I had understood some
of this before but not to this extent. I encourage those
who are in favor of same-sex marriage to go to the sites
and read what the ancient Rabbis wrote. I would also
like for everyone to consider what is written in Genesis
2:8-25. “The Lord God decided that it was not good
for a man to be alone; so he created a suitable helpmate
for Adam, a woman, Eve. Not another man. The two
of them would be one flesh, body, mind, emotions and
spirit and bring forth children. Not so in same-sex
marriage.
One of the thumbs down letters stated, “You’re
quoting from a manmade book ... God never sat down
and wrote any of it.” Well, in Exodus 31 verse 18, it
states in this Holy Bible, “And when He had made an
end of speaking to him (Moses) on Mount Sinai He
gave Moses two tablets of stone, written with the finger
of God.”
In Timothy 3:16 it states, “All scripture is given by
the inspiration of God the Holy Spirit and is profitable
for teaching rebuking, correcting and training in
righteousness ...” Inspiration here is a Greek word
theopneustos, meaning God-breathed.
Truly God loves us but in John 17, Jesus called to
him holy and righteous and Jesus should know; He is
the one with the father. God wants what is good for us:

to love Him and to willingly obey Him, not a rebellion.
When Jesus in John 8 was brought a woman caught
in adultery, He did not condemn her but forgave her
and said “Go and sin no more.”
Thumbs up to the Heavenly Father the Lord Jesus
and the Holy Spirit for your true words. Thank you for
listening.

Grateful to Participate
in the Election Process
I would like to thank everyone that came out to vote
in Litchfield’s annual elections. Although I did not
successfully earn enough votes to be elected, I am very
grateful to have participated in a process that goes under
appreciated by many of us.
I look forward to continuing in my role as School
District clerk and as a member of the town Planning
Board.
Please continue to participate in our town in
whatever capacity you are able as it is truly the key to a
successful community.
There are still many challenges to address that can
only be accomplished if we choose to work together to
bring all sides to a common understanding. Common
Core and Smarter Balance Assessment are very onerous
and its dangers will only be taken seriously if parents
voice those concerns to our School Board through an
organized and consistent manner. Unfortunately, there
isn’t a Board member willing to champion the cause.
Regardless of how many resources we commit to our
children’s education, Common Core standards are a
repackaged, failed outcome based system that will be
assessed using an unproven system that has never been
benchmarked against and standard.
Again, I thank you all for participating in this
election cycle and look forward to working with you in
future to make our community the best it can be.

Blurred Lines of
Responsibility in Hudson
I’ve live at the intersection of Ferry Street and
Central Street, a high traffic volume, congested, and
dangerous intersection since October 2004, with many
Massachusetts commuters.
It’s an intersection of dangerously poor traffic
controls, of inadequate line painting to direct the traffic
flow for a much higher level of safety, it has almost no
traffic signs to warn drivers of a congested area and
intersection, as are found in other communities and in
Nashua. A significant factor in this dangerous situation
is that many drivers approaching this intersection from
Ferry Street and Burnham Road or traveling north
or south on Central Street begin to accelerate as they
approach the traffic lights to avoid the red light either
way they’re traveling. Living here for more than 10
years, I see the nearly serious collisions, the rear-end
collisions, the aggressive drivers and acts of road rage; I
see it all day, every day.
There are residences and small businesses at this
intersection, the school is about a mile away from it
and combine those factors with such a high volume of
fast moving traffic, there’s no pedestrian safety crossing
signals here. I’ve witnessed school children crossing in
the middle of this intersection with traffic moving in all
directions and I’ve seen it with Hudson PD patrol cars
right there and nothing being done.
There are hidden/obscure driveways at residences
across from the used car dealership and Hudson Storage
but there are
no “hidden
driveway”
warning signs
at all, just like
there are no
“congested
intersection,
speed limit 20
mph” signs
either.

BROOK PLAZA • 30 LOWELL ROAD
HUDSON • NH

conditions are aggressive drivers passing illegally on
the left, when trying to make a left turn, they even
cross the double yellow line into the on-coming traffic,
a condition I discussed with a Hudson public works
supervisor in the fall of 2008, as I pointed out all of
these conditions to him when he was at an adjoining
property that had been demolished but nothing had
been done about any of this.
Then in early December, 2014, I finally sent
letters to the Hudson PD and the NHDOT after
reading the Hippo article on NH’s 10 most dangerous
intersections, requesting that this intersection be made
number 11 because it was time to get some action on
this dangerous situation. Ninety or so days later, the
Hudson PD explains in their letter that it’s a NHDOT
responsibility, then a NHDOT letter explains it’s a town
of Hudson responsibility.
Using the dangerous intersection as an example, that’s
been here for decades, it’s not something so new to the
town or state that they haven’t had time to decide who
was responsible for pedestrian and traffic safety here;
it’s a classic example of one hand not knowing what the
other hand is doing or it’s like the tuba player in the
orchestra playing the wrong music. How can there be
such blurred lines of responsibility between the state
and this town of such ridiculous proportions?
It’s my understanding from the Hudson PD that
there were four accidents at this intersection in 2014,
one of which happened just behind me. I just passed
through the intersection and was preparing to make
a left turn into our parking lot here; it was a rear-end
collision that was likely caused by a distracted driver
trying to beat the light change to red.
As dangerous situation I’ve described with almost
no traffic safety controls is much like the accidents
exiting the Market Basket parking lot or entering it
from Lowell Road, crossing too many lanes of traffic
with no restrictions. How many accidents and injuries
is too many before the town or state decide on who has
responsibility? Why must these be accident and injuries
or someday a death to get action taken to prevent them?
It’s much like the dangerous traffic conditions on Route
125 in Brentwood and the other 10 worst intersections.
These are examples of the needless and costly lawsuits
against the state of town(s) that arise from these
dangerous traffic conditions. After the first or second
accident, large traffic signs should be immediately
erected to alert drivers of dangerous conditions to
prevent more accidents and injuries.

Piece of the Pie

The Tax Return-The Value of Fringe
Benefits (Part 1)

W.F.Boutin EA - Total Tax Solutions LLC

Many employers offer their employees a fringe benefit package.
These packages can range from elective deferral plans such as
401K, Thrift Savings Plans, 403B tax sheltered annuity plans, or
cafeteria/section 125 plans that offer a menu of benefits that can
be purchased with pre-tax dollars. Some employers offer benefits
which are completely paid for by the employer such as adoption
assistance plans, dependent care assistance, educational
assistance, that is excludable within certain established limits
from the employee’s earned income.
When these benefits are paid for from the taxpayer’s salary on a
pre-taxed basis, taxpayers are able to lower their gross income,
AGI and taxable income on the tax return. In the majority of
cases, this will save the taxpayer considerable tax dollars. There
are the exceptions for individuals within a particular income
bracket and filing status that actually will lose tax dollars from
partaking in these benefit plans. A seasoned tax professional
should be able to explain if participation in these types of plans is
beneficial for your particular circumstances.
Elective deferral plans are savings plans geared for your retirement. These deferrals are not subject to income tax until you
receive distributions from the plan at some future point in time.
The intent is that you will be in a lower tax bracket at the time of
retirement or at the same level. Many employers also offer a
contribution match up to a certain percent of the employee’s
salary, for those who participate in such a plan. Let’s look at an
example of how this all works.
John, a single taxpayer, has gross income from wages of
$82,000. According to the tax tables he is in a 25% tax bracket.
He has no other income. After we deduct his standard deduction
and personal exemption in 2014, his taxable income is $71,850,
of which $34,950 is still in the 25% tax bracket. His employer
offers a 401K plan that allows him to contribute up to 10% of his
salary with an employer match of up to 5%. John elects to
contribute 10% of his salary or $8200. His employer will match
up to 5%, so he will receive the additional amount of $4100 tax
free to work towards his retirement. This $12,300 only cost John
$6150.00 since if he had not deferred the $8200, he would be
paying $2050 in federal taxes on this income (he is in a 25%tax
bracket and he would not have received his employer match).
Ironically, John also had some education expenses to deduct
this year. The phase out range for a single person for this credit is
between $80,000 and $90,000 in 2014. Before he deferred some
of his income to his retirement fund, his AGI was the same as his
wages $82,000, so part of his credit was not allowed. By contributing to his 401K, he has lowered his gross income and his AGI to
$72,000. He will now be allowed full credit for his education
expenses.
As stated before, each taxpayer’s situation is different based
upon other information on their particular income tax return. A
change in one area of the return can affect several other areas, so
when making decisions, the total picture must be reviewed.

Elvis Dhima explaining that GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc., who has
a contract with the town to monitor both of the closed landfills, one
located on West Road and one located on Burns Hill Road. GZA
had submitted a report on the monitoring results within the site
limits and groundwater management zone required by the New
Hampshire Department of Environmental Services on a biannual
basis.
GZA has detected a higher than acceptable standard of
the volatile organic compound known as 1, 4–dioxane at the
monitoring well GZ–102L. This well outside the monitoring
zone exceeds NH DES acceptable limits. Town engineer Dhima
explained that this compound is man made and primarily used
in solvents, varnishes, paint strippers and certain personal care
products. While the extent of the area which this compound
exceeds NH DES limits is not known GZA is recommending that
further studies be done. Part of this plan could possibly be that
abutting property owners on Wason Road participate in a voluntary
sampling program of their well water.
While GZA has been monitoring the landfills since they were
closed, these current samples were found as testing methods have

changes and are more sensitive to the compound. There are many
questions about the tests and what action the town should take.
GZA performed extensive off-site sampling in the past for the town
to evaluate the potential presence of other landfill contaminants
including iron, manganese and arsenic. GZA concluded that,
based on the results of the previous off-site program, the detected
parameter was the result of background conditions and not the
landfill.
The test came from well GZ-102L and is representative of
groundwater quality within fractured bedrock at a depth of
approximately 290 feet to 300 feet. Well GZ-102L is located
southeast of the landfill on Hudson tax map sheet 1211 lot 67.
The State of New Hampshire’s regulatory standards found
NH AG QS at parts of 3 mcg/L to 14 mcg/L with only one well
being detected in the groundwater sample above the standard
concentration levels.
The company town engineer who came to the selectmen’s
meeting was Jeffrey Rall, the associate principle of GZA
GeoEnvironmental. After some discussion, selectmen asked GZA
to prepare a work plan via a motion by Selectman Maddox and
Selectman Nichols that goes beyond the scope of the current
monitoring work that GZA does for the town.

PMA Preschoolers
Search for Elusive
Leprechauns
submitted by Presentation of Mary Academy, Hudson
The three-year-old preschoolers at the Presentation of Mary
Academy had a fun-packed day searching for leprechauns. Mrs.
Ribeck and Mrs. Heitmiller’s classes made leprechaun masks and
searched the halls looking for leprechaun footprints. The children
explored the classroom searching for gold coins to add to their pots
for a numbers-based learning adventure. For their religion lesson, the
teachers read a story about the traditions that St. Patrick brought to
Ireland. To top off the day, the children were entertained by Assistant
Principal Kate Gaudreau and her sister, Ellen Maruszewski, to an
authentic Irish Step dance.

colored, providing a calm environment that
features large windows that filter sunlight and
create a brightness in the office, even on a
cloudy day. Magazines are available to read
while waiting, and toys are provided in the
waiting area for the kids to play with while
waiting for their appointment. A large screen
TV, featuring popular children’s movies, is
playing in the waiting room.
The office was designed with an open
concept dental exam area with each dental
chair facing a large window that provides a
source of distraction for the patients. Parents
are encouraged to relax in the waiting room
while their children are treated, making them
the focal point of the appointment. Parents
are welcome to accompany younger or more
apprehensive children to provide a sense
of security and reassurance. The office is
designed with an Infant Room, in which their
youngest patients are seen. The room more
closely resembles a living room than a dental
office and is more inviting for youngsters.
Dr. Nilfa Collins’ interest in pediatric
dentistry began during her junior year in
college. With a degree in biology, she was
encouraged to shadow a dentist. She really
enjoyed the experience, and following her
passion of working with children, she decided
to become a pediatric dentist. After graduating
from Tufts School of Dentistry in Boston with a
D.M.D., she attended the College of Medicine
and Dentistry of New Jersey in Newark for her
post-graduate studies in Pediatric Dentistry.

How has Alzheimer’s
Affected You?
An Open Invitation
If your answer is “not at all,” then you are very lucky but among a rare
few. However, if you are trying to understand what it feels like to live with
Alzheimer’s, then you need to meet Greg O’Brien, author of “On Pluto: Inside
the mind of Alzheimer’s.”
Hudson residents and maybe some folks from other towns have a very unique
opportunity to meet this renowned author as he presents his personal battles
with Alzheimer’s. Greg will be at the North Barn, which is the Hudson Senior
Center, on Friday, March 27, from 6 to 8 p.m. talking about Alzheimer’s. Hearing
O’Brien’s candid conversation about the disease and the death sentence that
it has imposed on him is an amazing story. Like his mother and maternal
grandfather before him, Greg has been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s.
The former owner of the Cape Cod Times and now celebrated author and the
quintessential lead character of the new epic movie, “Still Alice.”
O’Brien, through faith, humor and journalistic grit, is able like a master artist
to paint a gripping, naked word picture of this progressive chronic disease, for
which there is no cure, a sickness that will affect generations. O’Brien bluntly
offers Baby Boomers and generations to come a riveting guide on how to live
with Alzheimer’s, rather than die with it. O’Brien is a brilliant observer and
superb writer. You have never read a book quite like it and probably never will
again. His books will be on sale at the event, which is sponsored by The Inn at
Fairview and the Hudson~Litchfield News.
Both Rosie Sampson from The Inn at Fairview and Len Lathrop, publisher
of the HLN, had the opportunity to listen to Greg when he came and gave a
presentation at The Inn about a month ago. Before they both left the facility, it
was decided that they would get together to try to bring this amazing man back
to the community, so that others could listen and learn from him. As Sampson
works daily with memory care patients and has recognized credentials in the
care of memory patients, she feels that Greg can lend insight to anyone who
needs to better understand this disease.
Lathrop has seen this disease in his father-in-law who is now a patient in a
Massachusetts facility. While having read numerous papers about the disease
to help his family, Lathrop was enlightened by Greg’s explanation. Seeing the
disease in action is one thing, but having someone with the disease tell you from
the inside how it feels is absolutely amazing. Looking into the disease from the
outside you only see someone who is lost. Feeling the disease from the inside as
Greg does allows him to explain that loss and the rage it causes.
Consider the words of this nationally recognized author who, in his book,
in chapter 6, gives this analogy: “Mr. Peabody who was the smartest beagle
ever to walk the earth. Everyone over 55 knows this. In cartoon terms he was
an inventor, entrepreneur, scientist, Nobel Laureate and a two-time Olympic
medalist. Impressive for a member of the humble hound group. in a moment of
dog genius Mr. Peabody invented the “WABAC” machine as a birthday gift for
his surrogate “son” a rejiggered “should have been machine” in modern culture,
often referred to as the Wayback Machine, a convenient way to reproduce issues
or events of the past as we would like to view them. I suspect Mr. Peabody in
his self-referential humor might have had early-onset Alzheimer’s; yet, he was a
virtuoso in his day. I find that Mr. Peabody’s WABAC machine, a time tunnel, has
greatest relevance in some ways than reality du jour. My life today has become
a cartoon in so many ways, a Wayback Machine, but the early years give me
ballast.”
While seating is limited to 125 people at the North Barn, located off Kimball
Hill Road by Benson Park, there is no admission fee. To be part of this event all
you have to do is pre-register by e-mailing concierge@Fairviewhealthcare.com or
calling 816-0070. Both Rosie and Len hope to see you there, as they know that
this will be a night that will open your eyes and touch your soul.

Dr. Collins was the first dentist to volunteer
with the non-profit organization, The Molar
Express, a traveling dental care facility that
travels throughout northern New Hampshire
and other areas, visiting schools and
community centers to treat children who
would otherwise not have access to dental
care. She is very proud of her service with
Molar Express and continues to provide dental
services through the area schools and by
serving Medicaid patients.
Collins Dentistry for Children actively
promotes the “Dental Home” concept, treating
patients from birth through college with
optimal care, with the first dental exam as early
as one year of age or as soon as a child gets
teeth. They offer the latest in technology in
dental equipment and procedures, and provide
orthodontic services, as well. Dr. Collins
also provides emergency services and has
hospital privileges at Lowell General Hospital
and the Elliot in Manchester, N.H., for those
patients who cannot complete treatment in the
traditional office setting.
Community oriented, the Collins Dentistry
for Children staff participate in the Pelham
and Hudson Old Home Days celebrations, as
well as many community activities in Nashua
and the surrounding communities. Collins
Dentistry is proud to sponsor numerous area
baseball, softball and football teams in the
surrounding communities.
Collins has another location on 76 Allds
St. in Nashua, just minutes from downtown
Nashua. To learn more about them,

The primary
cause of
periodontal
(gum)
disease is
plaque.
Plaque is a
colorless film
of bacteria
that
constantly forms on teeth.
Ignoring plaque is a risky
proposition. A serious result
of unremoved plaque is
gingivitis, the early reversible
stage of gum disease. As
plaque builds, the bacteria
produce by-products that
irritate the gums causing
redness, bleeding, and
swelling. These are warning
signs that indicate there is a
problem that requires
professional care.
Over time, unremoved
plaque calcifies (hardens)
and forms calculus (tartar).
Plaque is then trapped more
readily allowing the process
to continue. If left untreated
gingivitis can lead to
periodontitis, an advanced
stage of gum disease which
may result in tooth loss.
Although plaque is the
primary cause of gum

disease, other conditions may
contribute to the risk of
developing periodontal
disease. A diet low in certain
nutrients may affect the
normal healing potential of
the gum tissue. Dental
conditions such as
malocclusion (poorly aligned
teeth), deteriorating fillings,
and habitual clenching or
grinding of teeth all contribute
to make the supporting
structures of the teeth more
susceptible to this disease.
Even stress may now be
considered a contributing
factor.
The best way to guard
against this disease is stop it
before it starts. Controlling
plaque is the single most
important step to better oral
health. Regular dental visits
will aid in the prevention,
detection and treatment of
gum disease. Oral hygiene
instructions on proper brushing
and flossing techniques may
even serve to prevent this
disease from developing.
Regular examinations can also
aid in early detection of the
disease making treatment
more predictable.

and current freshmen and incoming eighth
graders, the classes of 2018 and 2019, would
need 23 hours.
Set the bar high and students will raise
themselves to the task is how Beals explained
the new graduation requirements; he did point
out, however, that 70 to 80 percent of students
currently graduating have many more credits than
required. Beals explained that the outside support
programs such as the new continuing education
diploma programs in additional evening offerings
allow us to be confident that we can raise the bar
and still meet every student’s needs.
With very little discussion a motion was made
by school board member Stacy Milboure and
seconded by Patty Langlais to change the high
school graduation requirement to 23 credits.
Some discussion ensued with school board

member Ben Nadeau asking about stress on the
school students. Beals explained that once put
into place this is a working plan where everybody
is supported. He commented that the new math
tutoring program that started this year and many of
the support systems are helping all students. He
also explained that they offer a five-year situation
for students, and with continuing education
programs and other opportunities, he felt that
students would discover a way to find the correct
path to new required credits whether through
directed studies, support programs or VLACS
(Virtual Learning Academy Charter Schools).
The school board vote was five in favor and
zero against to allow the leadership team at
the high school to continue to develop the new
graduation credit requirement and to implement
the phasing program that they had presented.

“Thumbs down to Hills

wrong. Way to keep our kids

“Thumbs down to the Hudson
School District and Mr. Lane for
their treatment of families who,
within their legal right, do not
want their children participating
in Smarter Balanced. Mr. Lane
stated that children who aren’t
taking the assessment will sit
and read in the testing room
while others test. If a nonparticipating child is absent
on a testing day then upon
return they will be sent for 90120 minutes to a make-up test
location to sit. They are going to
be removed from the classroom
and miss direct instruction to sit
for the time it would have taken
them to make up the test. ‘Sit
and Stare’ is an immoral and
unethical approach that seeks to
punish and humiliate students
whose parents have legally
declined to have them take the
test.”

points. As both teams made their way to their respective locker
room, Alvirne had trimmed the Tomahawks’ lead to seven, at 2619.
In the first 67 seconds of the third quarter, the Broncos outscored
Merrimack, cutting the T-hawks’ lead to just four. With 2:08 left
in the quarter, Alvirne was still hanging around, trailing by the
same four points, this time at 32-28. However, Merrimack went
on a quarter-closing 5-0 run; opening up a 37-28 lead going into
the final eight minutes. Sam Bonney-Liles contributed the same
way as did his teammate, Brown, knocking down a triple on his
way to posting all of his five points. But his effort was countered
by Merrimack’s Ian Roberts who scored six of his game-high 22
points, and Austin Franzen’s five points (16 for the game).
With 5:16 showing on the 4th quarter clock, Merrimack had
upped its lead to 13, at 41-28. The Broncos could not get within
striking distance as the remainder of the quarter became a parade
to the charity stripe that saw the Tomahawks convert on a total of
12 free throws. Rounding out the Broncos’ scoring sheet were:
Evan Hunt (4), Notini (4) and Danny Tucci, Brett Richardson and
Justin Glenzer-Thomas with a hoop apiece.

The Alvirne Varsity Cheerleading team
finished its season after competing in the
Division I State Championship held at
Pinkerton Academy. The team experienced
great success over the season thanks in
large part to the senior class. A special
thank you to the seniors: Sydney Balch,
Kellianne Connolly, Alex Hoskins, Calvin
Hunter, Erin Loughran, Carly Ramirez, and
Kailey Sullivan. The team will return some
very talented underclassmen.
On Feb. 21, the team competed at
the Astro Blast Competition at Pinkerton
Academy where the team finished a close
second. On Feb. 28, the varsity team
competed at the Capital City Competition
in Concord where the team finished in first place. The
team was feeling good about going into the Division
I preliminary round for the state competition. In the
preliminary round, Alvirne qualified for the Division I State
Competition the following week. The team competed well

just missing qualifying for the New Englands. The team
should be congratulated on a great season and we wish
the seniors the best of luck next year.
The Alvirne Junior Varsity Cheer team should also be
congratulated on a great season, finishing third at the
Guertin Winter Classic and fourth at the JV States.

The PMA Cadet cheerleaders come in first in state competition at Nashua South.
submitted by Presentation of Mary Academy, Hudson
On Saturday, March 14, the PMA Cadets Cheer team, which includes girls from
grades five through eight, competed at Nashua South High School in the Middle School
States Competition. The team has persevered through a tough week with a cheerleader
that injured her foot hours before last weekend’s competition. The girls worked hard
and performed their very best on Saturday. With five members of the team graduating
this year, it was their last competition as PMA cheerleaders. They were the first team
in Division B Small to take the mat and the girls gave it their all. There were six teams
competing and all were very talented. It was very exciting to hear PMA announced as
the first-place team. The girls have had an exciting season and look forward to next year.

Just 15 days earlier, on Feb. 24, Campbell was held

held for one shot. A penetration dribble and kick out to
the open man worked repeatedly throughout the night for
Campbell. And with that success, Langlois decided to run
the clock down for one shot. “We wanted to take it to the
rim and if someone was open, hit them,” reflected Langlois
of the designed strategy,” adding, “I was very pleased, no
regrets.”

Dutton Heading to National Junior
Olympic Shooting Championships

Hudson Fish and Game Club
Twenty-one junior shooters,
13 young men and eight young
women, turned up to compete
for an invitation to the National
Junior Olympic Shooting
Championships at the Colorado
Springs Olympic Training Center
this April and May. Saturday, Jan.
24, marked the second half of
the New Hampshire State Junior
Olympic Rifle Championships:
the smallbore rifle competition.
An automatic invitation is earned
one of two ways: winning the
men’s or women’s state champion
medal or shooting a Minimum
Qualifying Score out of 600. The
smallbore rifle MQS for each
competitor varies between men
and women by age category, with
this year’s being as follows: men
and women age 18-20, 575; men
age 15-17, 570; women age 1517, 565; men age 14 and under,
550; women age 14 and under,
545.
Elizabeth Dutton and Bailey Urbach of the HF&GC Junior Rifle team
The men’s competition started
off with a tie in the kneeling
position between Andrew Solomonides and Tobin Sanctuary, both of the Ferrybrook Junior Shooters. This
tie was broken during the prone position, when Tobin gained a five-point lead over Andrew. However,
Andrew came out victorious in the end, earning the men’s state champion gold medal with a score of
552. Tobin earned the silver medal with a score of 546, and Joe Nikiforakis, a freshman at Norwich
University and Ferrybrook Junior Shooter, took the bronze with his score of 522. Just behind Joe with
scores of 521 and 519, respectively, were his teammates Hunter Lang and Joey Wilson. Joey was also the
high-scoring 14 and under shooter of the match.
Elizabeth Dutton of the Hudson Fish and Game Club Junior Rifle team started the women’s competition
with a three-point lead over her teammate Bailey Urbach after kneeling. She kept her lead all throughout
the match, while their teammate, Victoria D’Amico, crept up on Bailey after prone, now only two points
behind second place. In the end, Elizabeth earned the women’s state champion gold medal with a score
of 565, while Bailey earned the silver with a score of 553. Victoria
took bronze with her score of 538.
Elizabeth and Andrew will represent New Hampshire at the
National Junior Olympic Shooting Championships in both the
smallbore and air rifle events, having earned the state champion gold
medals in each event this year.
