Hudson Memorial Day Parade
Marches on
Volume 26 Number 47 May 29, 2015 16 Pages

by Tom Tollefson
Gray clouds loomed overhead, but they proved to be
Mother Natures bluff as dozens of residents lined the streets
for Hudsons 2015 Memorial Day Parade last Monday
without any need for umbrellas on a dry afternoon. The
Hudson American Legion Post 48 ran this annual Memorial
Day event.
Dozens from all across the Hudson community marched
in the parade, including the Alvirne High School Air Force
ROTC, Showcase Performing Arts Center, Hudson Boy
Scouts and Girl Scouts, Hudson American Legion 48,
fire and police departments, and the day wouldnt have
been complete without the traditional performance by the
Alvirne High School Marching Band as they made their way
through the streets.
Some of the residents viewing the festivities from the side
of the road showed their patriotic spirit by waving flags
and decking themselves out in the American colors of red,
white, and blue. The parade went down Route 102 by the

Hudson Mall and continued to Library Park at the center

of town where the American Legion held a Memorial Day
American Legion Post 48 Commander Jay Lawlor
gave a few remarks to the crowd about the importance
of Memorial Day. He stated that the real reason for the
holiday is not barbecues and summer, but taking time to
remember members of the U.S. armed forces who gave their
lives to defend American freedom.
They made the ultimate sacrifice and fought for the
American way. We admire them and respect them every
Memorial Day, Lawlor said.
The crowd was also treated to some hometown blends
of meaningful music. The American Legion band played
Nearer My God to Thee and the AHS band played Stars
and Stripes Forever. The ceremony concluded with all in
attendance joining in to sing God Bless America.

historical society for a moving
program filled with music,
patriotic speeches and thanks
for all who have served.
As before a warm and
stirring welcome was offered
by Litchfield resident Dr.
Stephen Calawa. The Boy
Scouts presented the colors,
and the audience joined
in the Pledge of Allegiance
before everyone sang the Star
Spangled Banner.
Margaret Parent was
gracious and inspiring in her
speech about Memorial Day. It was a day to
remember the 150th end of the Civil War, the
40th Anniversary of the Vietnam War and to
remember the 70th anniversary of the end of
World War II.
This year words were passed out, and the
audience joined the Campbell High School Band
and choirs in singing. Dr. Calawa made closing
remarks before the important wreath placement
in memory of all who served. During this

Even though the skies were gray, there was
a huge crowd at Litchfields Memorial Day
Remembrance. As always the parade was an
eagerly awaited event. People brought chairs
and blankets and lined the edges of Route 102.
Children played while parents chatted with
friends. The parade stages at the school, so you
cannot see it start, but you always know when
it is coming because the sirens fill the air, and
everyone cranes their necks to see the start.
The parade is filled with joy and community
pride. All groups participate some walk and
some ride. Of course, the groups that carry bags
of candy and throw the candy into the audience
are the biggest hit with the kids. One father said
that his daughter captured more candy here than
at Easter, commenting that the last of the Easter
candy was finally gone.
Leading the parade are always the fire
apparatus. The engines sound their sirens and

flash their lights. Hands are waved as each slowly

drives by. The Campbell High School Band always
participates in this event, and a number of band
members were gathered together discussing who
would catch the most candy when a fire engine
was spotted throwing things and the competition
was on. What a surprise the band members
had when they realized that the fire engine was
occasionally squirting water into the audience,
which bought a big laugh to one and all.
The floats had a Memorial Day theme of
remembrance. They were enthusiastically
applauded as they slowly paraded past the
crowd. Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and sports teams
all walked in the parade. If you are a classic car
fan, you would have loved the cars. Nightmare
New England brought their tiny cars and gave out
coupons. Bikes and scooters were decorated in
patriotic colors and proudly ridden in the parade.
After the parade ended, everyone moved
into the parking lot between the fire station and

I am a Sixth Grader on May 21, 2015


by Len Lathrop
Got to school today at Hudson Memorial. Were
celebrating Memorial Day. Walking in a single file line to the
front parking lot; no talking.
Wow. The whole school is here, almost 900 students.
The band kids get to play military music as we go past. Did
Principal Bowen see me? He was watching everything. Who
are the guys with the guns? The sixth graders were the first to
come out. We started just as the clock showed 8 a.m.
Principal Bowen just said were here to honor those who
gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Is that what
Memorial Day is all about? Not just a cookout at Grams
house. Well, I guess I knew it was about wars, but it must
not be the wars that we are celebrating, but the men and
women who fought in them and those who died fighting.

Soldiers from Hudson American Legion Post

Guess the soldiers with the guns are from the Hudson American Legion
Post 48; I think that is what Mr. Bowen just said. Two Boy Scouts are
lowering the flag. They look like eight graders, but I dont know them.
Everyone is saluting as the choir sang the Star Spangled Banner.
The solders are moving. The guns just fired. It is loud. They just went
again. And again. They shot a total of three times. Mr. Scagnelli, the
music director, is playing Taps, everyone is still saluting now someone
in the woods is playing Taps. Everyone has stopped saluting. Mr.
Bowen is speaking again. He just reminded us of the cost of freedom, and
there are soldiers fighting in Afghanistan that we should remember.
The classes are heading back into the building. I wonder if all the other
students are thinking about the wars and the soldiers and everyone else
who fought in them for freedom. I will try to remember them and hope
that we find a way to prevent wars and dont have to fight them again.
We are going to the parade on Sunday; maybe I will see the soldiers
again and thank them for fighting in the wars.

Hudsons First Bank, Indian Head

Hudson branch of Indian Head Bank on Ferry Street in 1977
submitted by Ruth Parker
The first bank in Hudson was a branch of the Indian Head Bank. The bank
established temporary quarters in October 1963 at the corner of Ferry Street
and Campbell Avenue. A permanent brick building was soon completed at
the same location and was opened in March 1964.
By November 1976, the bank purchased the former home of Mr. and Mrs.
Harold Johnson and built a more spacious office with ample parking. The
original, and smaller, building was removed from the lot onto the site of the

NHARNG Retiree
Luncheon Date Set

The New Hampshire Army National Guard

(NHARNG) 7th Annual Retiree Luncheon date has
been set for Wednesday, September 18, by the luncheon
planning committee. The committee is made up of
current and retired Army National Guard members.
Our immediate goal is to notify all retired NHARNG
members about this upcoming event. Retirees who
have not attended prior luncheons or have relocated
are urged to contact Command Sergeant Major (Ret)
David Follansbee via e-mail: dave_follansbee@comcast.
net or (603) 623-7757.
This years luncheon will feature a briefing on the
current status of the NHARNG as well as exhibits and
displays of interest to retirees. A group photo is also
planned. Feedback from previous retiree luncheons
tells us the most significant attraction for attendees is
renewal of old acquaintances, retelling stories (often
embellished beyond recognition) and exchanging
military memories.
The planning committee asks if you know of
someone who has retired from NHARNG to pass this
information along.
At ease; dismissed!

Kudos to HPD
Folks who are regular readers of LTEs know I am
not shy about expecting our local law enforcement to
respect civil liberties and generally get government at all
levels out of the way.
So when I see our local police doing something I like,
it deserves a special thank you. I frequently do work at
the dysfunction junction known as the intersection of
102, Highland, and Library Street. It is not uncommon

for folks to want to go straight from the right turn

only lane. This usually gets me quite nervous,
especially during the work week when I have to park on
the street.
Twice in the past two weeks I got to witness our
local LEOs lie in wait of the problems and twice see the
problems addressed.
So thank you to HPD. Please keep up the good

Expressing Gratitude to Residents

for Successful Food Drive
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the
residents of Hudson, Litchfield and Pelham for their
generous response to our Annual Food Drive held
Saturday, May 9. Also, to postal management, rural
carriers, city carriers, church and family volunteers
as well as local schools and businesses for displaying
posters and billboard announcements for our drive.
With the resources provided and the time offered by
all the volunteers we collected 11,180 pounds of food
from Hudson and Litchfield residents. Pelham Carriers
collected 1,500 of food for their food pantry. People in
need should contact food banks in their towns which
are Blessed John XXIII Church , First Baptist Church in
Hudson, Litchfield Community Church and the Food
Pantry of Pelham at St. Patrick Church.
Thank You for your donations.
Frank Maglio, Food Drive coordinator, Hudson
Editors Note: Although Mr. Shannon is from
Windham, the HLN felt readers would benefit from
reading his letter as he has been closely following the
Kinder Morgan pipeline situation.

No Need for the Kinder Morgan

Pipeline Here
As I believe you [Kerry McHugh, Policy Advisor
to Governor Hassan] are aware, Kinder Morgan has
been stating to the public that they cannot build the
Northeast Energy Direct (NED) natural gas pipeline
without two things: a route plan that is permit-able by
FERC and sufficient customers to justify the cost of
the project. Repeatedly, Kinder Morgan has stated that
they would not build this pipeline based on speculative
It appears that Kinder Morgan is backing away from
this position. Originally Kinder Morgan stated that
they wanted to have contracts for 80% of a 36 inch
pipeline in hand before they would apply to FERC

for a permit. That was changed to 80% of a 30 inch

pipeline. Now, with 60% of the capacity of a 30 inch
pipeline sold, Kinder Morgan has stated, We have
sufficient contracts in hand to move forward. It turns
out that even this watered down number is duplicitous.
Kinder Morgan has been touting their agreement
with Liberty Utilities in New Hampshire, an anchor
shipper, for 115,000 dkth/day of natural gas to be
delivered via the NED pipeline. Before Kinder Morgan
can apply to FERC for their permit, the NH PUC must
review the Kinder Morgan - Liberty Utilities agreement,
approve it, and allow the parties to make a binding
contract. This process is ongoing on NH PUC docket
number DG 14-380.
In PUC testimony May 8 several very interesting
facts were revealed. First, the 115,000 dkth/day that
Liberty Utilities is contracting for does not represent
115,000 dkth/day of incremental gas. Liberty Utilities
presently purchases 50,000 dkth/day from Kinder
Morgan subsidiary Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co. and this
is included in the 115,000. Only 65,000 dkth/day of
the 115,000 total is incremental. Roughly half of the
contracted amount would not in any way require a new
pipeline to be supplied, and there are other existing
sources for the incremental gas requirements. Secondly,
the incremental 65,000 dkth/day is not projected to
be needed until 2038 - 20 years from the proposed
completion date of the NED pipeline!
Kinder Morgan has at least three other clients with
situations similar to Liberty Utilities. Assuming that
Kinder Morgan has double booked those clients in a
similar manner, it is likely that Kinder Morgans stated
commitments for the pipeline capacity is not 60% of a
30 inch pipeline but something more in the order of 4550% of a 30 inch pipeline capacity. This is well below
Kinder Morgans goals and should not be permitted.
The NH PUC ruling on the validity of a Kinder
Morgan - Liberty Utilities contract will be released on
June 30th. I urge you to read the expert testimony from
the May 8 PUC hearing and understand how contrived
the claimed benefits to the citizens of New Hampshire
are and how poorly Liberty Utilities has made their case
for needing incremental gas supplies.
Kinder Morgan is doing everything they can to jam
this pipeline through our state. There is no need for
it here and there is no need for it in Massachusetts.
The NH PUC can do its share in protecting New
Hampshire from this pipeline by invalidating the
Liberty Utilities contract and exposing the Kinder
Morgan pipeline for exploitative corporate theft that
it is. I urge you to pay close attention to this matter
and use any influence you may have to keep our PUC
vigilant in this decision.
Homer Shannon, Windham

Considering Contingencies and Balanced Budgets

Wondering who is Responsible
When did the practice of engineering companies or, lets rephrase, all engineering projects have to have a contingency built in?
Sometimes its 5 percent and sometimes its 10 percent. We wonder
this because at last nights selectmens meeting, on two different
projects, Town Engineer Elvis Dhima requested contingency funding.
Im not sure about it. In the Foxs world if you bid a job, you design
a job, then thats the price that you get for the job. If youve done
it wrong the cost of making it right falls on you. Why, as a society,
have we allowed professional engineers who make substantial
salaries be able to say if theres a mistake or something goes wrong
say, Im not responsible, lets use the contingency.

Feeding a Gift Horse

It first arose on Tuesday when the boondoggle of a project, the
restoration of the train station, was discussed for a second week in a
row. And as one selectmen noted during the meeting, a gift horse
looks good until you have to feed him. The cost of getting the train
station off the steel beams and putting on a knee wall foundation is
approximately $450,000. Hudson citizens have already authorized
$62,000 and Tuesday night selectmen approved spending the
amount of $57,000 to complete this project. This is in addition to
the federal funding. Hopefully, in next weeks HLN, we will be able
to dig deeper and show you some more details on the train station
-- where it is, where its going and why it has now cost almost a half
a million dollars to do.

Changing Traffic Patterns

The other project with
contingencies that came up
was traffic patterns and traffic
lighting systems at Library
Park. This project has been on
the drawing board for almost
10 years and will consist of a
second right-hand turn lane off
of Derry Street over the bridges
into Nashua and the elimination of the right-hand turn lane on
Library Street. If youre familiar with the intersection of Library and
Highland streets, people making a right-hand turn on to Highland
can move to their right to make the right-hand turn.
As we all know, that lane also allows many people to zip around
traffic and go straight anyhow. There will be two lanes on Library
Street, one heading toward the fire complex and the other heading
toward Derry Street, so if youre in line heading to 102 people
making a right-hand turn onto Highland Street will also be in that
line. There will be new lights with curb cuts for a handicapped
crossing at Highland and Derry streets. The town engineer stated
Tuesday night if the selectmen approved funding for this project that
it could be completed by October. The cost for this project seems to
be about $325,000. The Fox looks to have his work cut out for him;
more explanation will appear in the June 5 HLN.
Communicating with the Bears
At its Monday, the 18th meeting, the school board continued to
work toward a balanced default budget. They heard from the Bears
Youth Football parents and friends about the use of the Memorial
School field for their practices and games. School board member
Patty Langlais had made some comments at the prior meeting during
budget reduction conversations, about the condition of the field
and charging the Bears for its use or not allowing them to continue
to use the field. The bottom line outcome was the Bears board of
directors, while coordinating everything with the Memorial School
principal and the groundskeepers, hadnt met with the school
board for many years. They were advised that communication was
important, so that everyone could work together.
Doing Some Simple Math
The budget for next year is balanced or it appears to be with some
minor changes. Under the did you know column: The town gets
its copy paper from the school board who purchases 2,100 cases of
copy paper for usage throughout the school system. That doesnt
sound too bad on the surface, but lets do some simple math: 2,100
cases of paper with 218 going to the town -- that leaves 1,882 cases
to be used at the school department. Multiply the number of cases
by 5,000 sheets per case to get 9,410,000 sheets. Now divide that
by the number of students in our schools, which is roughly 4,000.
Take that number and divide by the 180 days in the school year, and
you come up with just a couple of decimal points over 13 pieces of
paper per student per day. Lets just end the conversation there for
this weeks edition.

On Saturday afternoon Troop 252 gathered
to honor Ethan Beals who had completed
all the requirement for Scoutings highest
honor. To become an Eagle Scout is a true
testament to the character of the candidates
who seek this rank. Beals Scouting career
began in 2005 when he began as a Bear
Cub Scout in March of 2005. He progressed
to Boy Scouting in March 2007, gradually
climbing the rank structure until he became a
Star Scout in December of 2009, a Life Scout
in October 2010 and finally completing his
Eagle projects in November 2014.
Eagle Scout is the highest rank attainable in
the Boy Scouting program of the Boy Scouts
of America (BSA). Since its introduction
in 1911, the Eagle Scout rank has been
earned by more than 2 million young men.
Requirements include earning at least 21

merit badges and demonstrating
Scout Spirit through the Boy
Scout Oath and law, service,
and leadership. This includes an
extensive service project that the
Scout plans, organizes, leads,
and manages. Eagle Scouts are
presented with a medal and a
badge that visibly recognizes the
accomplishments of the Scout.
Ethans Eagle project, in the
simplest terms, was to paint
the Steckevicz gym at Alvirne
High School. This project was
completed during the summer of
2014, using 35 gallons of paint and
more than 435 volunteer hours.
The gymnasium had not been
painted in 28 years; the estimate is
that this project saved the school
Erin Beals, Grandmother Eileen Beals, Steve Beals, Ethan Beals,
department (the taxpayers) roughly
Regina Beals, Grandmother Rose Houseman, Evan Beals and Emma Beals
$12,000. In reporting on the project,
Alvirne Principal Steve Beals (Ethans
dad) touched on some of the safety regulations that the Boy
Scouts of America imposed and thanked many of the parents who
stepped up to do the work from
the ladders, above where the boys
were allowed to go.
Master of Ceremonies Mike
Teague opened this Court of Honor
by mentioning that Ethan Beals
changed the dynamics of Scouting

words. Teague, as well as other

New Trees for Hills House

Adjustments to the
Hudson School Board Default
Budget Finalized ... maybe
by Len Lathrop
While a budget under New Hampshires SB2 policies is only a guarantee that the bottom line will not
be expended and governing bodies have the options to make transfers internally, the Hudson School
Board has worked hard to meet the default budget demands placed on them when its operational budget
failed during the March elections. Final adjustments were made in the May 18 school board meeting
based on consensus of the school board during a May 4 meeting. One goal was to replace as many funds
as possible into the library book accounts with the goal of bringing the accounts back to 70 percent of the
requested budget.
In his memo of May 7, Superintendent Bryan Lane also indicated that the board wanted equity in the
reductions for co-curricular accounts. Lane, working with department heads, found three areas where
resources could be reduced in the athletic accounts for AHS and eight HMS $6,000 was removed from
supplies, officials and transportation that raised the total reduction in the sports co-curricular budget to
$24,000, which is about 4 percent of the original operational budget. Some of the funds will be made up
from a participation payment from Pelham High School whose students play with Alvirne students on a
combined hockey team.
Due to a decreased enrollment at the high school, the number of students in the band dropped, which
means a $500 decrease in the uniform budget. In addition, a kindergarten guidance student is leaving
the district and will not need special summer services, which will save the district about $10,000. The
Boys and Girls Club of Nashua has agreed graciously to fund the cost of the coach for the middle school
wrestling club at $950. These cuts total $17,450, and when a percentage is divided into each of the
library book accounts, it brings all library book replacement accounts to 79 percent of original requests.
Lane also explained to the board that if the cost savings were found during the year monies could be
transferred back into the library replacement book accounts at all the schools.

As reported in last weeks Hudson-Litchfield News by Laurie Jasper, the second phase of the project
taking place at Hills House is now underway and new trees are in the process of being planted. There
are more changes to keep on the lookout for. Hills House will be sporting new driveway lights as well as
new signage. Hills House is located at 211 Derry Road and is listed on the National Register of Historic
Places. This beautiful, shingles-style 2-story home was once the home of Alfred and Virginia Hills. Today,
it is the home of the Hudson Historical Society and is lovingly maintained. The Hills House continues to
live on, and perhaps the new trees are symbolic of continued growth and inspiration for all.

More than 40 children, teens and adults from Tabernacle Baptist Church and Christian
School proudly walked in the Litchfield Memorial Day on Monday, May 25, in honor of our
fallen heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice. The group was led by a banner held by Luke
and Caleb Small that read, God Bless Our Fallen Heroes!
The group followed their float, which was designed, built and decorated by the members
of TBC. The purpose of the float was to honor all heroes who gave their lives in defense of
America and to glorify God. Gordon Wellman, who drove the truck pulling the float, and
Steve Clark, who knelt before a large white cross on the float, both faithfully served in the
U.S. military. The float was adorned with six flags, representing all branches of the military,
as well as a POW-MIA flag. On either side of the platform were the words of Jesus Christ
from John 15:13, Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his
friends. This verse truly epitomizes what genuine sacrifice and love is. Tabernacle Baptist

On Saturday, May 2, the Hudson Fish and Game Club
Junior Rifle Team hosted the NH NRA Conventional Prone
State and Regional Championship to open its outdoor
competitive shooting season. Several seasoned prone
shooters, such as Bob Lynn and HFG Junior Rifle alum
and Coach Brian Jylkka, were in attendance vying for
the state champion title and regional
HFG Junior Rifle Team Captain
and future member of the Ohio State
University rifle team Bailey Urbach
started the match with the high scores
of the 50 yard match and the 50 meter
match, also posting the only 400/400
of the meter match. Just behind for
each of these matches was Jylkka,
who in turn was the high scorer of
the Dewar (one 50 yard target and
one 100 yard target) match and 100
yard match with the only 400/400
for each. The two competitors found
themselves in a tie for points by the
final target, which brought the scores
down to X count (a smaller ring
within the 10 ring) for a tiebreaker. In
the end, Urbach was victorious with
a 1596/1600 with 113x to Jylkkas
1596/1600 with 110x, earning her
the title of state champion and a gold
regional medallion and him the silver
regional medallion. Bob Lynn took
the bronze regional medallion with
his score of 1587-81x.

The junior state champion title went to Ferrybrook

Junior Shooter Hunter Lang with his score of 1586-84x.
Classification and category award winners include High
Senior and High Expert/Sharpshooter Steve Roby (158175x), High Woman and High Marksman Liana Squeglia
(1568-67x), High Intermediate Junior/Subjunior Ruby
Gomes (1567-62x), 2nd Intermediate Junior/Subjunior
Savannah ZuZu Demetrius (1539-52x), and High
Master Robert Andreozzi (1510-38x).
As an additional note, Squeglia shot her first 200/200
during this match for a personal best. Upcoming matches
for the Hudson Fish and Game Club Junior Rifle Team
include the NH NRA Metric Position and Conventional
Position State and Regional Championships as well as
the RI NRA Conventional Prone State and Regional
Championship. Team members Bailey Urbach and
Elizabeth Dutton will also be attending the USA Shooting
National Championships and NRA Outdoor National
Championships this summer.

Senator Ayotte Tours Mercury Systems,

Urges Passage of Trade Bill
submitted by the Ofce of U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte
U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) recently toured
Mercury Systems, which employs about 170 workers
at its 100,000 square foot location in Hudson. During
the tour, Senator Ayotte highlighted her support for
bipartisan legislation to renew Trade Promotion
Authority, a tool that will help increase American trade
and help New Hampshire businesses create jobs.
I appreciated the opportunity to visit workers
at Mercury Systems, where I heard firsthand about
how the trade bill would help give their company
fair and equal access to sell their goods and services
in new markets, thereby creating more jobs in New
Hampshire, said Senator Ayotte. I fully support
renewing Trade Promotion Authority in order to
increase American trade and create jobs in New
Hampshire, and Im hopeful the Senate will approve
the bill this week.
TPA expired in 2007 and has not been renewed
since. TPA is a tool that would improve U.S.
negotiating power when it comes to trade deals,
increase transparency, and protect and elevate
Congress role in the trade negotiation process.
Without TPA, any administration can negotiate a trade agreement
on their own terms without clear direction from Congress. The
TPA legislation was previously approved by the Senate Finance
Committee on a bipartisan basis.

Senate Finance Adds $20 Million

to Rainy Day Fund
submitted by the NH Senate
The Senate Finance Committee reviewed a preliminary surplus statement on Tuesday, May 26 that
would increase the States Rainy Day Fund to $20 million, more than doubling the states fiscal reserve
balance, when compared to the governors proposed balance.
Restoring the Rainy Day Fund has been a Senate priority, and todays preliminary surplus statement
indicates that the Senate Finance Committee will be able to make this priority a reality by adding
$20 million to the fund, said Senate President Chuck Morse (R-Salem) who serves on the Senate
Finance Committee. The states treasurer has consistently advised the legislature of the importance
of maintaining and growing the Rainy Day Fund, which will work towards improving the states credit
rating while also establishing protections for New Hampshire taxpayers from any unforeseen economic
Unfortunately, the Rainy Day Fund has not seen an increase since 2007. It is very important for the
Senate to establish this buffer within the budget and by including these funds we are making critical step
towards improving New Hampshires overall economic health, Morse added.

Cooling not Warming Increases Mortality and Stresses the Economy

by Joseph DAleo, Certied
Consulting Meteorologist (CCM)
This fact is clearly supported by
many studies of populations in a
wide range of climates. Examples
are provided below from a
study of 13 countries, as well as
national studies from the United
Kingdom, the USA, Canada and
Australia. After the
coldest January to March
in the entire record back
to 1895 and a cooling of
1.5F/decade the past 20
years in the 10 northeast
states and DC, this
should concern us.
Cold weather kills 20
times as many people as
hot weather, according
to an international
study analyzing over
74 million deaths in
384 locations across 13
countries (locations in
Australia, Brazil, Canada,
China, Italy, Japan, South
Korea, Spain, Sweden,
Taiwan, Thailand, UK,
and USA). The findings
were published in The
United Kingdom
The UK Guardian
examined Excess Winter
Mortality after the
2012/13 hard winter. A
total of about 50,000
Excess Winter Deaths
occurred that winter in
the UK.
Each year since
1950, the UK Office for
National Statistics (ONS)
has looked at excess
winter mortality
Excess winter mortality
was 31,100 in England
and Wales in 2012/13
up 29% from the
previous year. Figures
for Scotland were
also released recently
showing a much smaller
increase in winter deaths,
up 4.1% to 19,908.
In Northern Ireland
meanwhile, the raw
numbers were low but

Weather Whys
and Climate Wise

National Center for Health Statistics

Source: Dr. John Christy, Senate and House Testimony

the increase was large a rise of

12.7% to 559 deaths.
The methodology behind the
maths is surprisingly simple; the
ONS take an average of deaths
in winter (those in December to
March) and subtract the average
of non-winter deaths (April to
July of the current year and
August to November
of the previous year).
The result is considered
In the milder climates
of western and southern
Europe, the Excess
Winter Mortality is
greater than in the
colder northern climates,
where people are more
accustomed to colder
winters and homes
are built to keep the
residents warm (better
insulation and central
heating). Also energy
costs in Europe are much
higher due to the early
adoption of inefficient
and much more
expensive renewable
energy schemes.
United States
Similarly, the USA
death rate in January
and February is more
than 1,000 deaths per
day greater than in July
and August.
Indur M. Goklany
wrote in 2009:
Data from the U..S
National Center for
Health Statistics for
2001-2008, shows
that on average 7,200
Americans died each
day during the months
of December, January,
February and March,
compared to the average
6,400 who died daily
during the rest of the
year. In 2008, there
were 108,500 excess
deaths during the 122
days in the cold months
(December to March).
More Record Lows than
Highs In US

Despite claims that extreme heat is increasing and cold

decreasing, the un-adjusted state extreme temperature data shows
the opposite.
Twenty-three of the state all-time record highs occurred in the
1930s and 38 heat records were set before 1960. There have been
more record lows since the 1940s than record highs.
Statistics Canada also reports deaths by month. The deaths per
day for each month in Canada averaged over the years 2007-2011
that the death rate in January is more than 100 deaths/day greater
than in August.
Even down under in Australia we see the same story. Queensland
University of Technology found (Source Science Daily) Australians
are more likely to die during unseasonably cold winters than hotter
than average summers.
Across the country severe winters that are colder and drier than
normal are a far bigger risk to health than sweltering summers that
are hotter than average.
QUT Associate Professor Adrian Barnett, a statistician with
the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation and the lead
researcher of the study, said death rates in Australian cities were up
to 30 percent higher in winter than summer.
The researchers analyzed temperature, humidity and mortality
data from 1988 to 2009 for Adelaide Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and
Professor Barnett said the finding that hotter or more humid
summers had no effect on mortality was surprising.
We know that heat waves kill people in the short-term, but our
study did not find any link between hotter summers and higher
deaths, he said.
Winter Economic Impact
An article in the Associated Press stated: [excerpt]
Theres something strange about the U.S. economy in the first
three months of every year: It frequently grows at a much slower
pace than in the other nine months
Alec Phillips, an economist at Goldman Sachs, noticed that from
2010 through 2014, growth in the first three months of the year has
averaged 0.6 percent, while it has averaged 2.9 percent in the other
three quarters.
And Macroeconomic Advisers, a forecasting firm, has found that
the pattern goes back further: Since 1995, outside of recessions, the
first quarter has grown at half the pace of the other three. [end of
The government agency charged with calculating the economys
growth rate said it would adjust its methods in an effort to resolve
the problem. Other economists, including at the Federal Reserve
in Washington, have concluded that the governments figures are
largely accurate. The first-quarter weakness over the years may be
due at least in part to harsh winter weather.
Joe DAleo, a Hudson resident for the last 25 years, co-founded
The Weather Channel and served as its first director of meteorology
back in 1982. With more than 40 years of experience in professional
meteorology, he has served as chief meteorologist for Weatherbell
Analytics since 2011. As a fellow of the American Meteorologist

Thumbs down to the school board candidate
who publicly says she is awesome instead of
telling voters what she hopes to achieve in office.
Do we really want a HSB rep who has no plan to
improve education or cut spending? All they can
say is they are awesome? Really?
Thumbs down to the folks responsible for the
decision to cut down those old, beautiful sugar
maple trees along the driveway
to the historic Hill House.
Those trees are part of the legacy
and pride of the town. Town
folk should have been informed
of your decision or been part of
the discussion before they were
downed. We hope you decide
to replace them very soon.

guns draw right down our street because he cant

grow up and be an adult. You know some of us
moved to Litchfield to be in a quiet town to raise our
kids. If you cant be a law abiding citizen please
move out of town so we dont have to be subjected
to your stupidity or have to worry about our kids
playing in our yard because we are not sure what the
jerk down the street is going to do today.

that can never be rectified!

Thumbs up to the Cougar Cubs soccer
program in Litchfield. What a great program you
guys have going. A hidden gem for sure. Im from
out of town and have not seen a better program
for such young kids. Thumbs up to the coaches of
the Cougar Cubs you guys are amazing.

Thumbs up to Rosemary for

her amazing efforts in educating
us all on the heroin crisis in
New Hampshire. I know its
not easy to put yourself out
there and share your familys
experience, but we need to be
educated. I certainly needed
to be educated. I read the
obituaries and see the deaths died at home, died suddenly
- and it now hits home. I realize
Ive been living in a bubble, and
I applaud those who are willing
to speak out. Parents - talk to
your kids about drugs.

Thumbs down to the HSB. Your budget failed

because your spending priorities have been way
out of control for years. With years declining
enrollments you still budgeted for additional staff,
always ignoring the infrastructure. You wasted
money on restructuring the elementary schools.
Now we have buildings in need of repair and
fields, tracks and courts that have gone neglected
for years. Now we cant play and compete on
the fields because they dont meet minimum
standards. Now you want to put together a triage
plan to correct it! Its a little late.

How to Know if
Youre Paying the
Best Price

(BPT) - Do you take your cars health for

granted? Only when the check engine light
comes on do you realize how important a fully
functional vehicle is to your daily life. Feelings
of fear, regret and anxiety often rush in: Will my
car break down? Should I have gotten my oil
changed sooner? Can I trust that Im receiving a
fair price for repairs?
These are all reasonable concerns, according to
Joe Wiesenfelder, executive editor.
According to Mintel, on average, drivers spend
nearly $1,000 per year maintaining their cars,
and that number will likely only increase as the
average age of vehicles continues to get older,
says Wiesenfelder. Even more important, a recent
survey by and Toluna found that one in
three drivers dont trust that the prices mechanics
quote to them are fair. Expensive and stressful
are the top words that come to mind for many
consumers when theyre thinking about car maintenance and repairs.
Knowledge is power, but for many consumers,
car maintenance can be shrouded in mystery.
Many dont know which mechanic to go to, how
much to pay or if the price theyre being quoted
is accurate. Thankfully, tools and resources are
available to help drivers confidently navigate the
automotive service and repair process. Here are
a few expert tips, resources and busted myths to
arm you with the information you need to make
informed, confident decisions about car service:
1. You probably dont need to change your oil
every 3,000 miles. Due to technology advancements, many auto manufacturers recommend
changing oil at intervals of 7,500 miles or more
for new cars.
2. Does a dirty air filter really hurt performance? A clogged air filter wont significantly affect fuel economy, but it can reduce acceleration
from 6 to 11 percent, according to a U.S. Department of Energy Study. For that reason, its a good
idea to periodically visually check the engine air
3. has launched a new Service &
Repair feature that provides a fair price estimate
for different types of service, helping ensure drivers never overpay. The online tool also helps drivers find local service providers and offers reviews
from actual customers to help them find a quality
4. Drivers expect the tires that come with
their new vehicle to last a long time, but tire life
depends on many factors, including: the quality
of the tire, its treadwear rating, whether it is an allseason, summer performance or winter tire, the
type of vehicle and where and how it is driven.
5. Service engine? If the check engine light
comes on and has a steady illumination, that
indicates a possibly serious issue, and it should
be dealt with quickly by a mechanic. If the check
engine light is flashing, find a place to park the
vehicle and turn the engine off as quickly as you
safely can. Ignoring your check engine light increases the likelihood of additional problems.

the Alvirne Baseball team keeps on winning. In
their past 10 games, the Broncos are 8-2, and
11-5 overall for the season. Last Friday, Alvirne
picked up that 11th win of the year, after the team
knocked off Salem by a score of 6-1.
The action got started in the bottom of the

The Campbell Track team has had a very
successful season to date, always finishing
in the top 3 spots in every meet. Saturday
was no exception, as the boys Track team
took home top honors, while the girls team
came in second. They competed at the
Monadnock League Championships, hosted
at Conant High School, to wrap up their
regular seasons.
On the girls side, three new school
records were set, as Caitlyn Callinan
finished second in the 3200 meter with a
time of 13 minutes 5 seconds. In the shot
put, Lexi Putzlocker took home top honors
with a new school record throw of 31 feet

if the ball had gone over the fence, or bounced
over the fence, which would make it a groundrule double. As Emanuelson rounded second and
headed for third, the umpires halted him, and told
him to go back to second. With objecting fans
in the outfield, including the Alvirne JV Baseball
team playing on the field right behind the varsity,
the two umpires came together. They agreed that
the ball had bounced over the fence, instead of
the ball clearing it outright.

control, said Coach Mike Lee. I said to them,
lets get the call right.
Even though the call wasnt right, Emanuelson
would steal third, and then come home after the
throw down to third went into left field, giving the
Broncos a 1-0 lead. The next time Alvirne would
come to the plate, in the bottom of the third
inning, they would add another run. With two
outs, Rauseo would single to right field. While he
was on first, the pick-off attempt would scoot by
Salems first baseman, allowing Rauseo to head to
second. J. Hudson then came up and singled into
left, bringing Rauseo in to make the score 2-0. In
the bottom of the fourth, the Broncos increased
their lead again. With one out already in the
inning, first baseman Derek Hudson singled down
the first-base line to get things started for Alvirne.
Hudson advanced to second after Sweeney
grounded back to the pitcher, for the second out
of the inning. With Hudson on second, Simard

The past week has shown how tough and resilient the Campbell
Softball team is. In their last two games against Bow and
Monadnock, they combined for 22 runs, while only giving up two
combined runs during those games.
In their game against Bow, they scored four runs in the bottom of
the first inning and never looked back. They scored in each of the
first four innings, eventually winning by a score of 15-1, when the
game was called in the fifth because of the mercy rule (when a team
is up by 10 or more runs after the fifth inning the game is called).
Hannah Neild went 2-for-2 with two doubles in the contest, while
Carrie Fernandez was 2-for-3, along with Emma Kuczkowski.

Hannah Cote pitched the complete mercy-shortened game for the

Cougars to pick up the win.
In their next game, the Lady Cougars had another strong showing,
as they beat up on the Huskies of Monadnock, 7-1. Haliegh
Cardello was the big bat on the day as she registered two home
runs, and almost hit a third. Lauren King also had a big game,
going 3-for-5. Hannah Neild and Amber Gibbons both went 2-for3 in the win as well, while Olivia Martinage pitched the full game,
as she struck out 12 Monadnock hitters. The Cougars improved to
14-1 on the year as they traveled to Hopkinton for their last regular
season game of the year.

How to Secure the Home Loan you Need

(BPT) - Springtime represents new beginnings and is the prime time to get the
house in order. Whether youre looking
to make a first-time purchase, refresh an
existing home or simply leverage builtup equity for other reasons, its important
to figure out which path is right for you
and understand the lending options
Fortunately, Regions Bank and many
other financial institutions offer various
free online tools and calculators to help
consumers get a grip on their budgets
and get the best financing for their
First-time home buyers have an excellent opportunity to make
their move now, as interest rates remain historically low.
First, buyers must start with determining what is affordable. In addition to the mortgage payment, housing costs will include property
taxes, homeowners insurance and fees, such as homeowner association dues. Altogether, costs should be no more than 28 percent of
monthly gross income and should leave room to continue servicing
other debt, such as student loans, credit cards or auto loans.
When preparing to buy a home, work through credit pre-approval
to be ready with a strong offer when the opportunity arises. In addition to reviewing credit history, a loan originator will consider the
amount of the down payment. A down payment typically ranges
from 3 to 20 percent, and one that is less than 20 percent may
require you to purchase mortgage insurance. A mortgage originator,
however, can provide a variety of lending options to optimize your
investment, from 15- and 30-year mortgages to fixed and variable
If the change in seasons is prompting an urge to make some im-

provements to a much-loved residence,

consider financing the updates through
a home equity line of credit (HELOC).
Eligibility depends on how much equity
has been built up in the home and the
lenders loan-to-value ratio. A HELOC
works much like a credit card and offers
flexibility. A minimum amount is paid
monthly, and interest applies to the
amount borrowed.
Before embarking on a remodeling
project, do some homework. Start with
the lender to determine the value of the
home and the loan amount available.
Then, establish a budget, leaving room
for unexpected expenses. Work with a reputable professional to define the project and its requirements, and shop around for bids and
recommendations to confidently select a contractor. Some lenders
offer checklists to help get the most from the investment.
Another option for financing a project through a homes equity
is a home equity loan (HELOAN). As with a mortgage, the loan is
granted as a lump sum and is paid back in installments over time,
typically 10 to 15 years and at a fixed rate locked in at the time of
securing the loan. A HELOAN works well for a one-time goal to
improve the value of a home. Be mindful that either a HELOAN or
a HELOC introduce some uncertainty, as monthly expenses will
increase and must be maintained to avoid foreclosure risk.
Remember to consult a professional for advice applicable to your
specific situation. Start with a lender who can help you identify
financial options available to home buyers and owners today. With
careful planning and budgeting, the financing you need may be well
within reach.
