Hudsons Early Learning Center

Opens its Doors to the Class of 2028

by Doug Robinson
The yellow chariots lined the street in front of Hudsons Early Learning
Center while the young children paraded down the steps into the loving hands
of their first school teachers. While some parents cried, hugged, and held
onto their little ones with a determination to never let go, others gleefully ran
to their teacher with a return hug as their agenda.
Twenty-five buses carried nearly 450 of Hudsons 2,500 school population
to the Early Learning Center for their first day of school. Those who did not
arrive by bus walked hand-in-hand with a grown up on their way to their
educational future. Others arrived by bike and even on the shoulders of dad.
Children, carrying backpacks decorated with pictures of Frogger, Princess
Beauty, Hello Kitty, and Ninja turtles-- were filled with their daily snacks,
pens, pencils and necessary school information forms.
As they lined up, with their designated teacher, family and friends continued
to snap those memory photos to be saved and then re-shown on their
graduation day, 18 years
in the future. Teachers
had created special
welcome signs that
identified the correct
area for the child to go.
P.J. Jr. wipes back the tears as he does
not want to take that giant leap and
start his first day of school as Paul
Strong and Amber Welsh reassure him
that it will be Okay.

Hudsons School Superintendent Bryan Lane welcomes

Nicole as she gets off her first bus ride to school.

Young Dylan, accompanied by Marc Barry and Darlene Taylor,

with School Interventionist Cindi Stratton in the back, was the
first student to arrive at Hudsons Early Learning Center.

As the buses stopped, their

numbers were checked off a
master list, ensuring that no child
in Hudson had been forgotten.
Teachers also had lists of their
students. All buses have
arrived, commented one staffer.
Hudson Superintendent of
Schools Bryan Lane and Becky
Gagnon of First Student Bus
Lines visited with parents and
children as they exited the buses
and were available for any
concerns about the bus route,
scheduling, and the picking up of
their children.
This is always a great day,
commented Lane. Its neat to
see the kids back in school.

Hudson When ...
Steam Railroad Bridge across
the Merrimack River
submitted by Ruth Parker
As you cross from Nashua into Hudson on the Taylor
Falls Replacement Bridge you can see the abutments
for this bridge down river on your right. This was the
bridge used by the steam railroad as it crossed the river
in to Hudson. The original wooden railroad bridge,
built about 1874, burned in 1910 after being set afire
from a locomotive. It was replaced by this iron bridge
which stood until the metal was salvaged in 1944
during World War II.
The abutments can also be seen from the shoreline of
Merrill Park, located at the end of Maple Avenue. The
park entrance is built on a part of the old railroad bed.
After crossing the river, the steam railroad continued
northeasterly, crossing over Lowell Road and the
street railroad on a trestle just south of the junction
with Central Street (near Hammond Park). The train
continued on to the station at Hudson Center, off
Greeley Street and behind Wattannick Hall. It then
continued easterly to West Windham. In this circa
1910 photo you are looking upriver at the railroad
bridge and the newly constructed cement Taylor Falls
Bridge that is visible under the bridge. Photo from the
Historical Society Collection.

LMS Walkathon Raises $2,480

for Norris Cotton Cancer Center
submitted by Kathleen Sidilau
The community of Litchfield once again raised
more than $2,000 during its annual Terry Fox
Walk-A-Thon. This year the official amount
was $2,480.66 for the Norris Cotton Cancer
Center. Litchfield Middle School continues to
be committed to this organization since it is
through Terrys inspiration that the students and
community raise the funds. They dedicated this
years walk in the name of Cheryl Irving. She
devoted the past 33 years as a teacher in the
community of Litchfield. She is waging her own
battle with lung cancer this year. Mrs. Irving has

The Barn is Bursting at the Seams

An Independent, Adult Recreational Facility for Active Seniors
by Doug
Since the
cutting of the
ribbon for
Hudsons Senior
Center, known
as the North
Barn, registration
numbers have
nearly doubled.
At the current
rate of growth,
more than 1,000
seniors will have
registered at the
Barn by this years
We opened
our facility on
June 3, 2014,
and when we
completed our
first registrations
on Sept. 17,
2014, we
452 seniors,
Every Thursday, not a parking place can be found as the
Hudson Senior Center fills up with bingo enthusiasts.
Lori Bowen,
senior services
coordinator for the Town of Hudson. Today, we just registered our
836th senior.
The Hudson Senior Centers mission is to provide services for
persons 55 and over and their spouses, regardless of age. The center
is a social environment which provides support, education, nutrition
and entertainment for elderly persons in Hudson. It promotes the
physical, intellectual, emotional and economic well-being of older
adults and those with disabilities. It promotes their participation in
all aspects of community life by providing the opportunities listed
above. The overall mission is to enrich the quality of life and support
independence and vitality for seniors, according to the mission
statement for the senior center.
The Barn is open Monday through Thursday from 8:45 a.m. to
3 p.m. For those who wish to take advantage of the Barn, a $10
registration fee is required for both Hudson and non-Hudson
Seniors who visit the Barn enjoy the benefits of playing pool,
foosball or various card games, as well as taking advantage of the
video-DVD-VHS book loaner program at no charge. In addition, the
center has activities for those who wish to knit, crochet, or simply
relax with new friends.
The Barn has established relationships with Home Health and

Hospice, Gateways for Seniors, Granite State Independent Living,

Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services, Legal Assistance for seniors,
Meals on Wheels and Home Instead Senior Care.
Other senior center services include foot clinics, lunch programs,
and aerobics,
For those who wish to take advantage of these service-related

The Barn is located at 19 Kimball Hill Road.

It is not unusual for those who come here to line dance on
Wednesdays, also visit other senior centers in Nashua, Windham,
Pelham, and Salem on their line dancing scheduled days. Seniors
develop friendships and travel from senior center to senior center
throughout the week following their passions, commented Bowen.
We are not a nursing facility nor do we administer any types
of drugs, continued Bowen. We are an independent, adult
recreational facility for active seniors.
As the saying goes, Build it and they will come, the Hudson
Senior Center has them coming and coming and coming.

Puzzles, games, and creating partnerships are only a few

of the senior services offered.
activities, any costs associated with the programs are self-funded and
are paid by the senior, not the Barn.
Approximately one in four seniors who do visit the Barn, enjoy
the many trips arranged. During 2015, more than 40 trips have
been taken by seniors. Trips to a Cranberry Bog, or a N.Y. Cruise
to Nowhere, and a trip to see the Beach Boys, fall foliage trips and
the popular trip to Foxwoods are only a few of the many getaways
organized. These trips are also self-funded by those who take the
trip and are of no cost to the Barn or taxpayers of Hudson.
Each day of the week brings new seniors to the Barn. Each day of
the week activities are planned on a set schedule. Thursday brings
the most seniors to the Barn as the playing of bingo is the most
popular event offered. Nearly 80 seniors fill the function room with
some playing up to five bingo cards at a time.

The Hudson School District hosted a community fair on Thursday,
Aug. 27 from 1 to 3 p.m. on the campus of the Early Learning Center
in conjunction with the annual meet and greet your teachers day at
both Library Street and Dr. H. O. Smith school.
Over one dozen local organizations were on hand to talk about
their services to the many families who stopped by on a beautiful
summer day. Many of those groups offered brochures and free
giveaways, to the delight of the children. While children enjoyed the
playground the bus offering rides to new students slowly passed by,
sometimes with sad little eyes peeking out from the high windows.
We felt there was a need for the younger families to know what
is available in the community, this was an awareness event, a way to
connect with the community, said the Hudson School Districts AtRisk Coordinator Heather Parsons. The Early Learning Centers PTO
promoted their mission while providing brochures about the fair.
Among those participating was the Nashua Public Health
Departments Beverly Doolan and Kim Adie. We are not just for
Nashua but for surrounding towns. This is a great event, were seeing
lots of families, said Doolan.
The United Ways Liz Fitzgerald was busy explaining their national
campaign, 5210 Every Day and handing out free lunch bags. The
5210 campaign encourages healthy choices and stands for five
servings of fruits and vegetables, two hours or less of television or
video games, at least one hour daily of physical fitness and zero
sugary drinks. Jenn Belcher, her children Jade (5), Ryan (8) and
family friend Emileigh Hannaford (8) listened carefully to what
Fitzgerald explained and agreed it was a good idea.
The Adult Learning Center was there, talking about the before

Letters to our Editor

Propose Real Solutions for NH

Im confused. a week or so ago a daily newspaper
published an article extolling the results of a national
study: Manchester, nH is the best place for small
businesses and nH is second best in the state. so
why the expensive attack ads on Governor Hassan
indicating that she doesnt support businesses/business
and is it me, or does it seem that every candidate
running uses their on-air time to slam the others,
instead of proposing real solutions to the gridlock in
Washington? Its a quandary, isnt it?
Gail Barringer, Litchfield

Detailing New Laws for Parents

and Students
This past year we passed a couple of bills that I
sponsored and the governor passed into law that will
directly affect parental and students rights.
rsa 186:11 IX-d: The policy shall require school
districts to notify a parent or legal guardian of a nonacademic survey or questionnaire and its purpose.
The school district shall make the entire surveys or
questionnaires available, at the school and on the
school or school districts website, for review by a
students parent or legal guardian at least 10 days prior
to distribution to students. Parent or legal guardian
may then opt-out their child from taking the survey.
non-academic surveys or questionnaires means surveys,
questionnaires, or other documents designed to elicit
information about a students social behavior, family
life, religion, politics, sexual orientation, sexual activity,
drug use, or any other information not related to a
students academics. It is interesting that these types
of questions are also illegal per Federal law, but schools
have been giving these surveys anyway.

rsa 189:70: Educational Institution Policies on

social Media. This law protects students privacy and
states that an educational institution shall not require
or request a student or prospective student to disclose
or provide access to a personal social media account
through the students or prospective students user
name, password, or other means of authentication
that provides access. I would suggest that you read the
entire law, as it does allow school administration to get
parental help in obtaining any information. http://
This law does not prevent a school from hosting their
own social media site, where students can be members,
such as sport teams, etc.
The social media bill was sponsored by republicans,
democrats, cornerstone, and the nH acLU, as it
is believed that everyone has constitutional rights,
including students.

talked to the MBta? Our first train in the morning,

bringing these phantom high tech workers will run on
single tracks in Massachusetts going the opposite way of
most on their trains.
Who is going to pay to build parking facilities at the
stops? Who is going to build stations to protect riders
from weather? What period of time will the trains
run? Is this a two hour trip? The committee bills it as
high speed, but in my mind, high speed is the amtrak
acela service. The committee also estimates property
development in the nashua-Manchester corridor that
is unlikely. This is one of the most highly developed
corridors in the state.
This existing study duplicates an earlier study, and
is an example of wasted government spending. The
recommendations are recommendations we dont need,
put forth by people who want trains, because they
require government to spend money it doesnt have.
How do we end this waste of money?

Many Litchfield students in all the schools will be

given new backpacks with supplies that are appropriate
for their level. The school nurses and guidance
counselors will distribute them to students in need.
tuesday, four volunteers spent sorting out the
supplies and dropping them off to schools. Workers
included jerry Parent, Michelle ninteau, Elizabeth
robinson and Pat jewett.
Thanks for the aaron cutler Library and the town
Hall for being drop-ff spots. We also appreciate the
residents for the donations of 16 backpacks, three lunch
boxes and many supplies to fill them. also, enough
supplies for 18 students were sorted and put in plastic
bags. The leftover supplies were distributed to all three
schools and appreciated. some 37-plus students will be
happy to start school again!
This could never have happened without the support
of our volunteers and residents. Thank you again.

Trump is a Loose Cannon

donald trump should not be a candidate for
President of the United states. He is a volatile loose
cannon who is out of control, and I am not referring
to the immigration issue, which has to be addressed by
more logical minds.
trump is the personification of a global bully who
would try to bully our potential adversaries into
submission, and he could end up initiating major
conflicts in the world. My concern is he will shoot
from the hip and blunder into a nuclear war with
russia or china.
I have been voting as a conservative for various
candidates from both parties since 1960 and I do not
recall a presidential candidate who is so off the wall as
donald trump.
Mr. trump is not presidential material and he could
be a threat to the security of this country and the world.
We need to trump all of his cards and return him to his

Re: Thumbs Down to

Continental Paving
The person who wrote the Thumbs down about
continental Pavings Big Orange trucks and the smell
of the asphalt they carry needs to take their hand off
of their nose and open their eyes so that they can see
beyond it.
First and foremost, the people who own continental
Paving and other properties and enterprises that are
situated in Litchfield most likely pay more taxes to the
town of Litchfield than anybody else. The income
they provide Litchfield would have been much greater
if over 20 years ago we had allowed them to move their
corporate headquarters from Hudson to Litchfield.
Unfortunately we allowed people from Hudson who
had bought houses on the Hudson/Litchfield town
line to come to our town meeting and talk us out of
allowing them to move to property in Litchfield that
had been zoned industrial. just think of the revenue
that would have come to Litchfield just from the
registration fees for all of those trucks! turns out that
if you drive down West road into Londonderry youll
see the beautiful athletic fields that continental Paving
built for them near their new plant.
The folks who own continental Paving more
than likely the largest and best paving contractor in
new Hampshire are undoubtedly the most generous
corporate citizens in town. dont just take my word
for it. ask our Fire chief, road agent, selectmen,
recreation committee, etc. do you think those nice
tennis courts on albuquerque avenue just dropped out
the sky? dont think youll find anywhere in our town
records where tax dollars paid for them.
By the way, did you know that continental makes a
deliberate effort to keep those big trucks off our townowned roads as much as possible?
People who cast stones anonymously via The Thumbs
column really should do a little research before they
stick their necks out.

At the request of State Fire Marshal J. William Degnan, New Hampshire
Governor Maggie Hassan has declared September as Campus Fire Safety
Month. The New Hampshire State Fire Marshal J. William Degnan, Chief
Richard OBrien, President of the NH Association of Fire Chiefs and
Chief of the Goffstown Fire Department, and the New Hampshire Fire
Prevention Society are in partnership with Campus Firewatch to promote
campus fire safety.
Since 2005, the governor of New Hampshire has joined other states
across the nation in signing a proclamation establishing September as
Campus Fire Safety Month as part of a nationwide effort to raise fire and
life safety awareness among students residing on and off campus. August
and September are typically the worst time of year for fatal campus-related
housing fires.
For most students, the last fire safety training they have received was in
grade school, but with new independence comes new responsibilities. It is
important that both on- and off-campus students understand fire risks and
know the preventative measures
that could save their lives, said
State Fire Marshal Degnan. It is
the intent that through Campus Fire
Safety Month students will realize
they are not invincible, that fires do
happen in campus-related settings,
and that students should take steps
to protect themselves no matter
where they live.
Schools, colleges, and
universities across the state are
encouraged to provide educational
programs throughout the school
year, and also encourage schools
and municipalities to evaluate the
level of fire safety being provided
in both on- and off-campus student
housing. Educational institutions
should take the necessary
steps to ensure fire-safe living

Zach Field Back on Track

by Doug Robinson
The Hudson Board of Selectmen met with Weston and Sampson,
Hudson Town Engineer Elvis Dhima, and Len Lathrop, Zach
Foundation volunteer to bring the Zach Field project back on track
and back on budget.
I went back to the beginning, commented Dhima, to (be able to)
give a detailed description of what happened.
According to Dhima, 15 different plans had been used, reviewed,
and revised during the current construction of the project.
During the excavation of the asbestos, it was learned that the site
had three times as much asbestos to be removed than originally
As a result, three times as much fill was need to cover and abate
the asbestos.
The plans to eliminate the 20-foot-high hill had to be changed
due to the asbestos located in the earth below. This change had the
snowball effect to change the playing direction of the football field.
According to the agreement between the town and the Zach

Foundation, the use of the field was to be extended to the town for
lacrosse, soccer, and baseball when the Bears Football Association
was not playing on the field. However, these plans have changed
due to the enlargement of the parking lot (due to the mitigation of
the excessive asbestos) and the change in plans to the hill.
The project came to a head when it was learned that the cost of
the project was $20,000 over the approved not to exceed price of
$53,000 set by the Board of Selectmen.
While Dhima admitted to approving the cost overruns, he did not
provide an explanation of who actually approved the excess costs.
Selectman Roger Coutu simply stated to Wesson and Sampson,
You owe us $420,000. You inherited the (plans) and (this was done)
without the boards approval.
Dhima explained that the Nashua grant had $65,000 still
available, and those funds could be used to pay for the cost overrun.
Weston and Sampson agreed to contribute $8,000, bringing the
total to the $73,000 needed in an effort to keep the project moving

as well as use their new social studies texts and materials. In the
meantime, a rowdy Campbell High School staff welcomed the new
freshmen last Thursday. Many students seemed enthusiastic to start
high school and participate in the 1:1 Chromebook pilot program.
Lastly, the association would like to welcome back experienced
teachers and welcome new teachers! They are elated to collaborate
and learn from one another as everyone continues to Keep Kids
Visit the LEA Facebook page, Litchfield Education Association, and
the new Twitter page, @LitchfieldEA, to learn more about what is
going on throughout the school year!

Pickleball Arrives in Hudson

by Laurie Jasper
On Wednesday evening, Aug. 26, the Hudson
Recreation Department hosted an Introduction
to Pickleball at what was the Hudson Skateboard
Park. The former Hudson Skateboard Park has
been transformed into two pickleball courts, along
with a separate picnic area.
The skate park has been out for about a year
and a half, there was a lot of vandalism and worn
equipment, said Recreation Director David Yates.
It was decided that pickleball might be a good
replacement. The resurfacing of the area and
the picnic spot were paid for by the recreation
donation account, with no taxpayer money used.
This reporter had done her homework, so knew
a little bit about the game of pickleball before I
arrived at the courts. The ball is not shaped like a
pickle, and it isnt even green. According to the
book, The Art of Pickleball by Gale H. Leach,
which came from Rodgers Memorial Library, in

1965, Bill Bell and Joel Pritchard put together

an impromptu game using various items from
several sports: a whiffle ball, wooden paddles,
and a badminton net. They eventually wrote a set
of rules and Pritchard built the first court in his
yard. Pritchards cocker spaniel, Pickles, liked to
grab the ball and run, which is how many people
believe the game was named!
Volunteer and pickleball enthusiast John Croes
from Litchfield was Wednesday nights teacher,
and he did a great job explaining the nuances
of the game. The courts are much smaller than
tennis, the ball is similar to a whiffle ball and the
paddle is similar to one used in table tennis,
explained John. The net is also lower than in
tennis; it is 34 inches in the middle and 36 inches
on either end. There are indoor and outdoor balls,
depending on the surface. John also strongly
encouraged the use of good court or tennis shoes.
After going over the

basics with the group who came for the lesson,

everyone watched a game in progress as John
talked through the moves. The serve is always
done underhand, and must go diagonal, said
John. There is an area near the net called the
non-volley zone, which is also nicknamed the
kitchen. The games usually last 10-15 minutes
and the score goes to 11 points.
The recreation department intends to keep the
outdoor courts open until November and then will
re-open in April. The Hudson Senior Center holds
classes at the courts every Tuesday and Thursday
mornings from 8 to 10 a.m., weather permitting.
Other than those times, the courts are available
for all.
The game of pickleball is fun and fast-paced,
and can be enjoyed by people of all ages and
fitness levels.

Outfitting Students Technology Needs

Nowadays, school supplies differ greatly from the markers,
protractors and pencil cases required just a few decades ago. Many
classrooms are now geared toward digital learning, and items
such as tablets, smartboards and laptop computers are essential to
enhancing students classroom experiences. Its no surprise then that
many students require a long list of tech products and applications to
keep up with their studies.
According to a Project Tomorrow report titled The New Digital
Playbook: Understanding the Spectrum of Students Activities and
Aspirations, a large percentage of students have access to various
mobile devices in the classroom. Smartphones, laptops, tablets,
and digital readers are some of the more commonly used devices in
modern classrooms, and such usage is not limited to older students,
as the report noted significant penetration of mobile devices among
the primary grades, even in K-2.

To enhance the learning experience found in school, parents may want to allow access to such devices at home. The
following are some tech items to consider.
Tablet: Android and Apple-based tablets give students
easy access to a variety of applications and web connectivity.
Their portability makes them a convenient way of staying connected both inside and outside the home. Many tablets can
be enhanced with plug-in keyboards that make typing easier.
Tablets can be used to take notes, browse the Internet, check
email, and maintain correspondence with classmates via messaging applications.
Smartphone: Smartphones now have many of the same
capabilities of tablets, albeit in smaller packages. Parents may
need to customize safety settings on phones to keep students
secure, but the devices can be valuable tools in keeping tabs
on kids whereabouts.
Laptop: Tablets and smartphones may have reduced
consumer dependency on laptop and desktop computers, but
traditional computers remain a valuable learning tool. Their
larger screen sizes and mouse/keyboard features can make
it easier for students to spend more time working on projects that
require a lot of typing. Since many teachers now require assignments
be typewritten or completed online, students may need to have a
computer at home. Peripherals, such as a printer and an external
hard drive, may prove useful as well.
App access: Students may require different apps to complete
their assignments and stay organized. Calendar functions, newspaper
apps and calculators can provide the boosts kids need to perform

well and stay organized. Mobile devices are pre-loaded with stores
where users can purchase applications, such as the App Store on
Apple devices and Google Play on Google-based mobile products.
However, users will still need to establish an account, which is typically linked to a credit card. If parents do not feel comfortable giving
children free rein, they can set parameters on app purchases or buy
pre-paid app gift cards to avoid excessive charges on credit cards.
Technology is pervasive in the classroom, and students may need
various digital devices to make the grade.

A Childs Success Starts with a Good Nights Sleep

(BPT) - Its hard to believe another school year is already here.
After a fun summer of outdoor
activities, vacations and plenty
of late nights, its time to get
your family back into a routine
- specifically a regular bedtime
routine. While sleep is important for adults, its even more
important for growing children
and affects their performance in
school, sports and family life.
Sleep is at the center of a
healthy lifestyle. Although diet
and exercise are generally what
come to mind first when thinking about health, proper sleep is
essential to realizing the benefits
of a healthy diet and exercise
Living a healthy lifestyle has become a topic of particular importance to me and my family, says actress, author and TV host Alison
Sweeney. As an ambassador for Sleep Number for the past two
years, Ive learned just how important sleep is to our overall health,
well-being and performance.
Children who followed bedtime rules averaged an hour more
of sleep a night, helping them concentrate and perform better in
school, according to a 2014 study by the National Sleep Foundation.
Here are a few ways you can help stop the stall at bedtime:
* Keep a bedtime routine for your kids, even on the weekends.
* One hour before its time to

go to bed, put all electronics away

to help their bodies wind down.
Use that time to spend together as
a family, possibly reading before
* Try tracking your kids sleep
and help them monitor their daily
activities to see how these affect
their rest.
* Most importantly, try to keep
bedtime a fun experience! Avoid
using Go to your room and an
early bedtime as punishments, as
this equates bedtime to a negative.
Kids need much more sleep
than most people realize, and
the quality of sleep is equally as
important as the quantity.
Most Americans think kids need
only nine hours of sleep each night, according to a recent survey
by Wakefield Research. While eight or more hours are ideal for an
adult, the recommended amount for children 5 to 11 years old is
actually 10-11 hours per night.
Recently, my kids began sleeping on the new SleepIQ Kids bed
from Sleep Number, a smart bed for smart kids, says Sweeney. I
love how the SleepIQ technology allows me to know not just how
long my kids slept, but how well they slept. And if they arent sleeping well, it tells me and we can make changes. As they continue to
grow, the bed gives me the ability to adjust the firmness to keep up
with their changing comfort needs.
Many parents know the difficulties that come with trying to get
children to go to sleep. Youve
probably heard the common
excuses such as, I have a stuffy
nose or there are monsters under
my bed as a way to stay up just a
little longer. With the SleepIQ Kids
bed, however, those excuses are
something of the past, because it
includes multiple smart features,
including a head tilt for reading or

Tips for Parents to Help Students Gain the Edge in STEM Education
(BPT) - As students prepare to head back to school each year, parents face the same question: How can they help their kids advance
in school, develop into creative, collaborative thinkers, and make for
an overall less stressful experience?
Whats more, as students progress in school, the subjects that present the most challenges - science, technology, engineering, and math
(STEM) - are the key areas where students need to excel in order to
prepare them for success throughout their school years and eventually their professional lives. In fact, a new survey commissioned by

2015, revealed that parents
believe math and science are
the subjects that will prepare
students the most for the job
market, yet parents admit they
are not as prepared as they
could be to provide crucial
after-school help.
Parents need to expose
students at an early age, incite
interest in STEM subjects and
empower students to develop
the skill set needed to get
ahead, says Dr. Michele
Borba, an internationally
recognized parenting and
education expert.
Nearly 70 percent of
surveyed parents admit they frequently struggle to help their kids
with STEM-related homework. Borba suggests a few tips for parents
to help foster STEM learning, break down complex problems, and
teach effective homework and study skills.
Discover the students learning style
Identify how each student learns best - by seeing, hearing or doing
- to determine how to tailor and adapt lessons and study techniques
The visual learner needs to see the information to absorb and
retain it. In fact, according to the survey 86 percent of parents think
the best way for their students to learn STEM-subjects is through
visual learning. Students can visually map out information on colorful Post-it Super Sticky Notes from the World of Color Rio de Janeiro
collection and move them around their notebook, binder or desk
space as they study. Try mapping out an anatomy lesson layer by
layer on different colored notes or create a visual brainstorm.
The auditory learner needs to hear the information to remember
it. For this type of student, try creating flashcards with key facts,
questions and answers and read the text out loud alone or with a
like-minded classmate.
Lastly, the kinesthetic learner is a do-er and needs to participate
in an activity to learn. For this student, try writing the notes out long

How About Better Grades!

Become a campus master. Dont walk around with a freshman

target on your back. Ditch the paper by taking a picture of your
class schedule and campus map and setting it as the lock screen on
your phone. You know you always have your phone handy, and this
will help you memorize the buildings and classes faster.
Study smart. Youll do a lot of reading in college, and it can be
hard to concentrate page after page. Its a good idea to place a small
treat, such as a gummy bear, every few pages so you can enjoy little
rewards while completing your homework. Dont let your reading
assignments pile up. The higher they stack, the harder it will be to
complete them on time.
Brilliant class registration. Take some time to figure out what
classes youll need for both your major and general requirements
before you register. Dont just choose classes at random. Be sure
to register as soon as the option becomes available to you because classes will fill up fast. Youll thank yourself later
when youre prepared to graduate on time.
Ditch your comfort zone. Leave your high school
world behind and come to college with an open
mind. Try new clubs and activities, volunteer and
talk with as many new people as possible. College is
one of the best opportunities for personal development, so make the most of your time.
Follow these tips and youll be ready to prosper
and succeed the moment you step on campus.

Is July of 2015 the Warmest Ever? Not Even Close!

by Joseph DAleo, Certified Consulting Meteorologist (CCM)
You probably heard in the media that NOAA reported a few weeks
The July 2015 average temperature across global land and ocean
surfaces was 1.46F (0.81C) above the 20th century average. As
July is climatologically the warmest month for the year, this was also
the all-time highest monthly temperature in the 1880-2015 record,
at 61.86F (16.61C), surpassing the previous record set in 1998 by
0.14F (0.08C).
It just reaffirms what we already know: that the Earth is warming,
said NOAA climate scientist Jake Crouch. The warming is
accelerating and were really seeing it this year.
NOAA also reported 2014 was the warmest ever year with an
anomaly of +1.33F (0.74C).
Sure sounds conclusive. But you should know that global surface
station based data is seriously flawed and easily manipulated and
can no longer be trusted to assess climate trends. See: http://tinyurl.
Numerous revised versions of the global data have been issued
in the past 25 years. Each one produced more and more of an
apparent warming, accomplished by each time cooling the past
and allowing urban heat islands to run rampant in recent decades.
The net result of the adjustments is to generate a more smoothly
increasing global temperature since 1880. And in fact most all of
the claimed warming is in the adjustments to the data.

difference has to do with the base period used for the averages to
compute anomalies, but most of it is in the adjustments and blending
techniques and how NOAA infills for large data gaps or widespread
missing surface station data.
The temperatures in this reanalysis data shows no warming for
over 10 years, and the +0.155C anomaly is in the middle of the
pack of Julys for the last decade, not the warmest ever. It ranked
tenth warmest in the last 20 years.
Satellite Data
Since 1979, NOAA satellites have been
carrying instruments, which measure the
natural microwave thermal emissions from
oxygen in the atmosphere. The intensity
of the signals these microwave radiometers
measure at different microwave frequencies
is directly proportional to the atmospheric
The advantage of the satellites is they

NOAA adjusted their July temperatures as they did for June

and May and for 2014 just enough to be able to make the claims
warmest ever, all leading up to the United Nations treaty in Paris
later this year.
The Real Data
Meteorologists and, in fact, NOAA itself in their models ignore
this adjusted data. NOAA uses many raw data inputs to construct
a high-resolution global analysis four times a day that is used to
initialize all their models (including their climate models) used by
forecasters in government and industry.
Weatherbells Dr. Ryan Maue compiled the four times a day actual
data going back to 1981 and computes in real-the monthly global
picture. With a base period of 1981-2010, the anomaly globally
is not even close to NOAAs 0.81C, but just 0.155C. Some of the

There are two satellite
remote sensing groups
the NASA UAH site in Huntsville, Alabama and Remote Sensing
Systems, a scientific research company located in California,
specializing in satellite microwave remote sensing of the Earth.
Both satellite sources showed there has been no warming trend for
over 18.5 years. Both showed July and recent months were not even
close to being warmest even in just the last 20 years.
Dr. John Christy, Alabama Climatologist and Director of the Earth
System Science Center at the UAH, said According to microwave
data from satellites going back to 1978, which are precise to within
.08 of a degree, very little warming is taking place.
UAH (shown) assessed lower troposphere temperatures have not

July 2015 in the RSS data set just edged out 2003 for eighth place,
but it was 0.32C (0.58F) colder than 1998.
So three much more reliable sources suggest that July 2015 was
not remarkable or special from a temperature standpoint
That is not to say that given the strong El Nio underway, we wont
see a spike up as we did in the satellite data in 1998 and 2010, but
with a long strong La Nia likely to follow (like we saw in 19982000 and 2010/11), global temperatures will dive again and the
pause is likely to give way to a slide starting in late 2016.
The problem is that the same staff at NOAA (and NASA which
relies on NOAA for the base data) that are responsible for running
the greenhouse models and writing the reports that project the scary
scenarios are also responsible for the data bases that validate the

forecasts. The actual data should be constructed independently of

the forecasts with people who do not have a financial and personal
(job security) interest in seeing their forecasts verified.
Indeed, we see in the independent data sets, like the satelliteand balloon-based ones, widespread model failures. The failure of
temperatures to warm invalidates all the other scary scenarios many
claim we will or are already experiencing. Please spread the word.
I would be glad to address your group or class and show you much
more about the real story with the science and climate. I dont deny
that the earths climate changes. No climatologist or meteorologist I
know does. We just dispute why.
If we torture the data long enough, it will confess. Ronald

Hudson Litchfield Bears Game Recap

Charlie Crawford with the carry

submitted by the Hudson Litchfield Bears
Sunday, Aug. 23, at 8 a.m. was the home
opener for the Hudson Litchfield Bears at Hudson
Memorial Field. This year the Bears are wearing
brand-new uniforms adorned with a new logo
replacing the old logo of over 25 years.
HLB had two wins and three losses the first
week. I chalk it up to it being our first game
of the season and against one of our toughest
teams in our league the Pelham Razorbacks,
explained HLB President Kelly Champagne.
Things are being discussed by coaching staff, and
adjustments will be made at all levels of teams.
Overall the boys worked hard and should keep
their heads held high. Our cheer teams looked

great and our fans were fun and full of spirit! It

is great to hear the cheers from the fans for both
our football and cheer teams. Thank you all for
making it a great opening weekend.
Game 2 was played on Sunday, Aug. 30. The
Bears were on the road this weekend. The flag

Spotlight On HLBs Third Grade Team Game 2:
The third grade Hudson Litchfield
Bears went to 2-0 on the season with a
dominating 46-0 win at Laconia on Sunday
The offense was spearheaded by Camren
Flash Dillon, who scored three more
touchdowns after scoring all three last
week in the 19-17 win over Pelham.
Quarterback Gabe C-Bass Conrow was
4-for-4 passing for 140 yards with three
touchdown passes, two to Dillon and one to Ryan
Rhino Rocheleau. Sean Boogie Boudreau,
Dante Destroyer Pirrotta, and Charlie Chaz
Crawford also had TD runs. The offensive line
opened up huge holes all day. Led by center
Devon Scott, Shayne Mack Mackey and Dante
DT Trombley
The defense was completely dominant, only
allowing one play of more than 10 yards and
one first down. The defensive line, anchored
by Andrew Dice Deely and Nick the Sack
Machine Hershberger, consistently made it
difficult for the Laconia offense to gain any

Coach Conrow with the third grade team

Finally, the special teams also came up big,
recovering two onside kicks. Head Coach Jeff
Conrow was pleased with his teams effort and
level of competitiveness. All 27 athletes came out
