within Hudson Boards and Committees
by Gina M. Votour Several appointments were made to Hudson boards and committees during the April 14 and April 28 Board of Selectmen meetings. Through a unanimous vote taken during the April 14 meeting, Stuart Schneiderman was selected to fill the single vacant alternate slot on the Nashua Regional Planning Commission (NRPC). An accountant who has resided in Hudson for over four years, Schneiderman is also a member of the Planning Board and part of the Hudson Democratic Town Committee. “I’d like to see Hudson, my neighbors, all of us, get our fair share of development,” stated Schneiderman, citing preferences such as the return of the rail to south Nashua. On April 28, Ron Routhier was appointed to the single vacant alternate seat on the Conservation Commission with a term to expire on 12/31/09. A Hudson resident since 1992, Routhier explained to the board that he became interested in the Conservation Commission after speaking with a commission member during a previous town event. Three applicants surfaced for the two vacant member seats on the Recycling Committee — Lisa Elliot, David Reidt, and Peter Beaupre. Elliot is a 15-year Hudson resident whose children are involved in baseball and other town activities. Describing herself as “an avid recycler,” Elliot mentioned better ways to communicate recycling messages, such as through banners at ball fields, newspaper advertising, and more Website visibility. Reidt is the evening manager at Hannaford in Hudson, who revealed his desire to “give back something of my time to the town.” Beaupre, who could not attend the selectmen meetings due to a scheduling conflict, was interviewed on a previous occasion by Selectmen Ben Nadeau and Shawn Jasper. Based upon a special suggestion stemming from Selectman Nadeau, all three applicants were appointed to the Recycling Committee. “This is the first continued to page 7 - New Appointments

Litchfield Resident’s Design Tapped for Top Three
Michael Ferdinand, a first year graphic design and illustration student and lifetime resident of Litchfield, created a design for Breathe New Hampshire’s annual T-Shirt Graphic Design contest that landed in the top three. The design was vying to win the honor of being imprinted on event T-shirts, which will be distributed to each participant in the non-profit’s annual Seacoast Bike Tour scheduled on May 16 and 17. Ferdinand, a graduate of Campbell High School, is currently enrolled in Manchester Community College’s Commercial Design and Illustration Program. He professes to have a keen interest in drawing and computers. “So this field that combines both is perfect for me,” he explained. It seems he has found his niche, as his design was chosen as one of the top three designs to be used as this year’s design for Breathe New Hampshire’s annual Seacoast Bike Tour official T-shirt. Over 400 people voted online, with his design and another student’s designs splitting the vote for second place. “Each year we do this, the number of folks who vote increases,” said Beth D’Ovidio, spokesperson for Breathe New Hampshire. She added, “We are always blown away by the quality and individuality of the designs.” This year’s winning design was submitted by Shane McGonagle of Greenfield. “This is the third year we participated with Manchester Community College in this service-learning project,” said Beth. Students are assigned the project of creating the design for the T-shirt, as part of their course work. The project provides the students with authentic experience in working with a client and designing something that may have a real life application. Ferdinand explained that he conducted his own research on Breathe New Hampshire before he began his design. “I visited their Website to see what they were all about,” he said. When asked about his process for creating the design, he explained, “First I came up with a few small sketches (thumbnails), then I decided � ������ �� to develop ������� the idea of TM bikers riding around the organization’s logo, which is circular. It all had a moving dynamic to it.” Ferdinand was hoping the design would produce a good grade from his teacher. “I TM can’t tell you what grade he received,” said D’Ovidio,” but it was a winner Michael Ferdinand’s design to us.”

Red Cross Offers Tips to Avoid the Flu – #1: Wash Your Hands!
With rising concerns from recent cases of the swine flu, the American Red Cross offers guidelines to reduce the risk of illness in New Hampshire families and communities. These are important to follow, regardless of the specific type of flu. Many are commonsense precautions that we learned as children. The best practice is to avoid getting sick in the first place. Eat a balanced diet, exercise daily, drink plenty of fluids, manage your stress, and get enough sleep. To avoid spreading germs, take the age-old precaution of washing your hands frequently with soap and warm water; an alcohol-based hand sanitizer can be used when soap and water are not available. Minimize your contact with sick people, and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Get a flu shot as advised by your healthcare provider. If you do get sick, avoid contact with other people. Stay home from work. If necessary, encourage your business and school to establish policies that support people staying at home when they are ill. When you sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with tissues or the crook of your elbow – then wash your hands with soap and warm water. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the symptoms of swine flu in people are similar to the symptoms of regular human flu, which include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills, and fatigue. Some people have reported diarrhea and vomiting associated with swine flu. Note that having these symptoms doesn’t always mean that you have the flu; many different illnesses have similar symptoms. Like seasonal flu, swine flu may cause a worsening of underlying chronic medical conditions. If you develop flu-like symptoms and are concerned about possible complications, consult your health care provider. For further information, contact the American Red Cross. Call your local chapter at 603-889-6664, then wash your hands with soap and warm water.

The Word Around Town...
Unnecessary and Unwanted Expenses

Letters to our Editor
Yet, Mr. Bell and the Board subsequently ignored the very obvious will of most voters by approving $180,000 of non-essential spending. How is that any different from an unfunded mandate (that they so strongly opposed)? The taxpayers of Hudson will have to keep vigilantly watching for the rest of the kindergarten implementation process to make sure our pockets aren’t being picked by the “know-betters” of the Hudson School District. Richard Patterson - Hudson spending. The latter means curb and reduce spending in line with available income. Why can’t our Democratic-led House and Senate understand this? With the current economic situation and joblessness in our state, why can’t they understand that we cannot afford any more increases in taxes of any type? Mr. Knowles wants us to believe that there are “400 different sets of ideas” of how to balance the state budget. That is another joke. There are two distinct sets of ideas. The Democrats idea is to spend more and raise taxes to cover any shortfalls. Mr. Knowles and our other two area Democrat state reps march goose-step in line with the majority party in Concord on this philosophy. The second idea is of the minority party to curb spending and cut taxes in these difficult economic times. Mr. Knowles last line states “spread the pain.” Did you or your majority party ever consider alleviating some of the pain by cutting many of the needless increases in spending that you passed in the last two years? I am sure this concept never crossed your mind. Mr. Knowles, you can write all the letters you desire to try and justify your votes on more spending, increased government autonomy, increased entitlement programs, higher taxes, etc., but I for one am not fooled by your rhetoric. I for one am not buying it. The bigger the lie, the more believable it is. And if you tell it enough, the people will fall for it. That was the general idea of the Nazi party of the 1930s and 40s, and unfortunately this ideology is thriving in our state. Hopefully, the majority of the taxpayers will see through this ruse. Tom Dichard - Hudson

This letter is tardy; but the topic is nonetheless still pertinent. At the outset, I’ll be clear that I do support public kindergarten. That being said ...

Yard Sale at Anne Marie House on Saturday, May 16
The Greater Nashua Interfaith Hospitality Network (GNIHN) is a collaborative effort of religious congregations in the greater-Nashua area who operate the Anne Marie House on the grounds of Presentation of Mary Academy in Hudson. This facility provides vital transitional housing and support services for homeless families – i.e., a mom plus dad with child(s) or a single parent with child(s). New Hampshire’s 2006-2010 Consolidated Plan by the Housing and Community Development Council estimates that 2,632 families (of 5,554 parents and children) were homeless in New Hampshire per 2005 data. In fact, children under 18 are the largest sub-category of homeless individuals! The problem is going to get worse in the future due to the present economic downturn and foreclosure crisis. Meanwhile, government, philanthropic, and individual funders who help non-profits like GNIHN meet their missions are reducing their giving due to budget and investment pressures. Thus, GNIHN and others must devise new fundraising avenues to fill the budget gaps. From 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday May 16, GNIHN will run a Yard Sale at Anne Marie House to raise money for its important mission to help house and serve area homeless parents with children. In addition to selling items of its own, GNIHN invites residents throughout the greater-Nashua area to also rent a stall at the Yard Sale to sell goods at. This event will be an excellent opportunity to “spring clean” your home by selling unused goods while helping Anne Marie House fund its work by renting a stall for just (8-feet by 5-feet or (16-feet by 5-feet). For more information or to reserve space call 883-7337 (ask for Tami, June, or Laurie) or e-mail (note “Yard Sale” as the subject). We hope to see many sellers and buyers at this event. Thank-you for considering to be a part of its success.

The seated Benson Committee of March 2009 would like to thank the people of Hudson for their support of cleanup days, along with finally getting the property for the town’s use. Two months ago, the committee was informed that their services would be terminated, and if they were interested in being on the new Benson Committee they could apply for the position. I realize that there is no volunteer committee that has lifetime appointments, but some people on this committee, such as Esther McGraw, Duane King, Rhona Charbonneau, Ray Parker, and Ken Dickerson, had been with the committee for a long time, planning for when the property would be turned over to the town. I suggested to Selectman Jasper, who is our liaison, that for those members Laurie Skibba, Executive Director, and that wanted to, they should be given twoRichard Patterson, Board Trustee, GNIHN, or three-year terms. There would still be Anne Marie House - Hudson vacancies for new people who would like the appointment. This suggestion was shot down by Selectman Jasper. We were also informed that the need for representatives Response from the Conservation, Recreation, and to John Knowles’ Letter Historical were not necessary. Some members felt this was a slap in the face and In response to Representative John they were no longer needed. I hope this was Knowles’ letter to the Hudson~Litchfield not the intent, but this was the interpretation. News of May 1, all I can say is … what a I was a little perturbed when listening to joke. the Planning Board meeting on television His first sentence states “balancing to hear Selectman Maddox state that he, income with expenditures.” Why can’t the through a Planning Board member, should be Democratic-led House and Senate “balance appointed to the committee.

More Letters to our Editor
Knowles are Good and Decent Citizens
I am writing this letter in response to the barrage of negative sentiments in the letters of your readers against John and Mary Ann Knowles. These personal attacks against their character are really deplorable. The Knowles have stated that they make political decisions based upon their personal values. They have said they vote their conscience while “respecting others’ right to disagree.” The negative comments are not good arguments for “the other side.” They are impugning the reputations of good and decent citizens (the Knowles). It would seem the ‘loyal opposition’ is not for anything but instead against people – gay people, transgendered people – against sharing their rights with all Americans. These “new republicans” have become the party of hate. Sorry folks, the Democrats won. Obama won. He is trying to clean up the mess of the last eight years. He is doing so without name-calling or blaming. He is a class act. Too bad so many of your readers are so filled with vitriol — afraid of losing something they alone felt entitled to. It doesn’t appear as though our illustrious politicians have missed a meal because a gay person has taken soup out of their mouths. In fact, they all look abundantly healthy and robust! The Knowles are good and honest honor people and are no threat to anyone’s “way of life” even when that “way of life” excludes other of God’s children and is based on fear, ignorance and selfishness. Keep it up, Republicans, and we will all be marching backward into the 16th century. Republicans are no longer the party of Goldwater and Eisenhower, both of whom were inclusive and big-hearted. You have become small-minded and hardhearted. Too bad. Jean Serino - Hudson approved budget increased by 17.5 percent – far above the cost of living. The democrats felt that they had received a mandate from the people to institute spending programs. With the recession hitting all of us in our wallets, this year’s Democratic majority, of which Knowles is a part, has passed a house budget that is again up beyond the inflation rate. Unfortunately with the recession holding the state firmly in its grip, all revenues are down. By reading the previous letter you might think that the new taxes would only touch a few residents. Again not true. Many of us will see a negative impact in our wallets if the budget passes the Senate as it passed the House. To begin with rooms and meals tax increase will affect you every time you purchase a meal at a restaurant. The gas tax will increase 15 cents over the next three years and you’ll pay every time you fill up your vehicle. If you are a smoker or if you live in a border town where small businesses rely on across out-of-state customers for tobacco sales, your town will see an impact. There are a number of four new taxes, which are: • Capital Gains Income Tax • Death Tax • Any gambling winnings • New tax on tobacco other than cigarettes (snuff and cigars under $2) at a rate of 48.59 percent The Insurance Premium Tax reduction frozen which may mean fewer insurance companies in our state. Less competition means higher prices. Then we need to look at higher fees and new fees. Some of these will impact all of us and some will not, but all are increases, which Knowles failed to mention. • Increased registration costs for vehicles • HHS fee for community facilities, $78 per bed • Certified copy of license/registration fee • Motor vehicle records fee • Department review of subsurface plans fee • Inspection sticker fee • Real estate electronic transaction fee • Fire safe cigarette certification fee • Boat registration fee • Salt water license fee • New penalty assessment for traffic fines ranging from an increase of 20 to 24 percent. • New $100 fee for annulment of records • Pilot/navigator/captains fee increase Don’t be misled. Government services require a great deal of money to sustain. In this recession wouldn’t it have made more sense to cut some functions rather than increase taxes and fees on residents? If you agree, contact the Senate Finance Committee and your democratic representative and tell them you are taxed enough already. Russ Ober, State Representative - Hudson holding their Blood Drive also on May 16 at Griffin Memorial in the gym. We hope to see you Saturday. Christie McQuesten - Litchfield

Iranian Nuclear Missile Threat
Iran tested the launch of a Scud missile from a ship in the Caspian Sea, which was designed to provide the capability of launching intermediate range missiles from cargo ships sitting off coastlines. Also, within a few years, Iran will have long-range missiles capable of striking North America. Iran could have nuclear warheads available to mount on missiles in late 2009. The U.S. and other countries do not have missile defense systems to ward off an attack. Counter strikes could be launched against Iran, but this would not prevent Iran from launching an initial strike based on irrational thinking by Amadmanejad and his Iranian cohorts. The Obama administration is making conciliatory gestures towards Iran, but is not making any progress in curtailing Iran’s nuclear development program. According to Walid Phares, an expert on global terrorism and the Middle East, “the perception in Tehran is the Obama administration will not use everything at its disposal to apply pressure on Iran.” Furthermore, Obama’s apparent bow to Saudi King Abdullah is perceived as an act of submission and weakness by the international community. I fear Obama’s naive blunders will embolden Iran to pursue and possibly use its nuclear missile capabilities. Donald A. Moskowitz - Londonderry

Marriage is more than a collection of legal rights; it tells the community that two people love each other and are a family. Since everyone understands and respects this, it makes being married something important, something we aspire to, and something that protects us in daily life as well as in times of crisis. Our constitution requires legal equality for all. Helen Smith - Nashua

On May 3 at approximately 11:45 p.m., Officer Broderick and Officer McStravick conducted a motor vehicle stop on Cross Street, Hudson. Two male subjects, identified as Justin Noviello, 24, of Hudson, and Matthew Bussolari, 23, of Litchfield, were taken into custody on the charges of Prohibited Sales as two female subjects under the age of 21 were found in the possession of alcoholic beverages. Noviello was charged with the offense of Open Container as well. Further investigation led to the discovery of an illegal controlled substance. Bussolari was subsequently charged with Possession of a Controlled Drug with Intent to Distribute as defined in RSA 318-B:2. Bail for Noviello was set at $2,500 cash and bail for Bussolari was set at $10,000 cash. Neither subject could post bail as of this writing and were scheduled to be arraigned in Nashua District Court on May 4. This incident is still under investigation at this time.

Unemployment Benefits Extended for NH Citizens
Governor John Lynch announced on May 6 that federal stimulus funds will allow for the extension of unemployment benefits for New Hampshire citizens. “New Hampshire families and businesses continue to be impacted by the ongoing national recession. I believe strongly we should do what we can to assist families through these difficult economic times, and extending unemployment benefits to hard-working men and women looking for jobs is one way we can do exactly that,” Governor Lynch said. As part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, New Hampshire qualifies for a 13week extension of emergency unemployment compensation benefits. The 13-week increase is in addition to the 20-week federal extension already in place. This does not include the first 26 weeks of regular unemployment benefits. The federally-funded 13-week extension was triggered due to New Hampshire’s increased unemployment rate. Eligibility for the additional 13 weeks began this week. All individuals who wish to file for the extension will have to visit their nearest New Hampshire Employment Security office to complete the application form. If it is determined that regular unemployment insurance has been exhausted, then a claim for extended benefits can be established. For contact information and directions to New Hampshire Employment Security offices, go to, or call 1-800-852-3400.

Safe Boating
A boat operator with blood alcohol content above 0.10 percent is estimated to be 10 times more likely to die in a boating accident than a sober operator. According to the U.S. Coast Guard, boating under the influence contributes to 34 percent of fatal boating accidents. Here are some tips from on how to avoid a BUI and also stay safe on the water this summer. 1. Don’t drink while operating a boat. Save all drinking activities until you are safely on land. 2. Be overly cautious on major holiday weekends. The weekends of Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day are considered the deadliest weekends both on the water and on the road for accidents involving alcohol. 3. Know your local boating regulations. If you trailer your boat to another state, or to Canada, read and clearly understand what the local regulations say about open containers of alcohol in a boat, and BUI laws. 4. Beware of boater’s fatigue. Hours on the water with exposure to noise, the sun, wind, glare and the vibration of the boat can produce an effect called boater’s fatigue, which can affect a person almost as much as if they were legally drunk. Adding alcohol or drugs can multiply and intensify that effect. 5. Read the label on your prescription drugs. Common prescription medications, such as those to control blood pressure, could have side effects that could be multiplied by environmental factors such as too much sun. 6. Wear your life vest. Because alcohol, combined with the elements, can impair your balance, wearing a life vest is a good idea.

Letter Carriers in Nashua and Hudson Aim to “Stamp Out Hunger”
On Saturday, May 9, letter carriers in Nashua and Hudson – and in more than 10,000 cities and towns across the country – will be doing much more than delivering mail along their postal routes. They will also be collecting the compassion of their postal customers who participate in the National Association of Letter Carriers’ (NALC) 17th annual “Stamp Out Hunger” National Food Drive. Letter carriers will collect non-perishable food left by mailboxes and in post offices on May 9 and distribute the donations to area food pantries on May 10. The “Stamp Out Hunger” National Food Drive, made possible by the efforts of members of the NALC, is the world’s largest one-day food drive. It has yielded more than half a billion pounds of food donations over the past 16 years. “This year, more than previous years, we need all residents in local communities across the country to be generous in their donations,” said Frank Maglio, coordinator of the food drive in Hudson. “All the food pantries are reporting a continuous increase of people coming to them for food and other necessary items,” he added. The food drive is held in late spring as food pantries run out of donations received during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday periods. In 2008, the drive provided 73.1 million pounds of food nationally. The 10,300 pounds of food collected by Hudson letter carriers went to the First Baptist Church in Hudson, the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry at St. John’s Parish in Hudson, and the Community Church in Litchfield. “With the financial crisis that is being felt in every neighborhood in this country, it could be your friend, neighbor, or family member you’re helping,” said Maglio. To donate, all Nashua and Hudson residents need to do is place a box or can of non-perishable food next to their mailbox before the letter carrier delivers mail on Saturday, May 9. The carrier delivers the food to the post office, where it is sorted and then available for pickup by local food pantries the next day. The “Stamp Out Hunger” National Food Drive is conducted in conjunction with United Way, the United States Postal Service, the AFL-CIO, and Feeding America, and with support from Val-Pak and Campbell Soup Company.

Law Allowing Communities to Utilize Federal Stimulus Funds Signed
Governor John Lynch signed into law a bill (SB 39) on April 17 that allows towns and school districts to quickly utilize federal stimulus funds. The new law gives local government bodies the ability to call special meetings for the purpose of appropriating stimulus money. Previously, towns and school districts had to petition the superior courts for permission to call a special meeting. The new law requires that there be a seven-day notice period on any special meeting. “The purpose of the federal stimulus funds is to put our people back to work quickly. By streamlining the process, while ensuring the public’s participation, we are helping to do just that,” Governor Lynch said. “I want to thank the bill’s sponsors and the House and Senate for working quickly to pass this law.” The bill was sponsored by Senators Deb Reynolds and Bob Odell and Representatives Mary Cooney and Suzanne Laliberte.

Protective Clothing for Hudson Fire Department
The Hudson Fire Department recently took delivery of 59 sets of new firefighter protective clothing and boots, as part of a grant received from the 2008 Assistance to Firefighters Grant managed by the Department of Homeland Security. The grant award was a total of $76,860 in which the town was responsible to match ten percent or $7,686. The department chose the Janesville brand of protective clothing. Firefighter protective clothing — also known as ‘turn out gear’ — is specially designed to withstand the high temperatures and conditions firefighters face when fighting structure fires and working in other hazardous environments. The protective clothing meets National Fire Protection Association Standard (NFPA) 1971. The turn out gear is made of three primary layers; an outer shell, a moisture barrier, and a thermal liner. The outer garment is made from self-extinguishing fibers, known as Nomex, that provide against heat, flame, and abrasion. A set of turn out gear, which includes the coat and pants, ranges from Call Firefighter Peter O’Sullivan is shown with a set of $1,400 to $1,900. new protective clothing purchased with funds from the “Our previous protective clothing was 2008 Assistance to Firefighters Grant. last replaced approximately ten years ago. previous grants from the Assistance to Due to the rigorous use and its age, many of the sets of turn out gear were showing Firefighters Program, and with these grants signs of deterioration in their protective purchased Plymovent systems for all abilities.

Brush Fire at Deer Leap
Deer Leap conservation area kept firefighters busy on Friday, May 1, as 15 acres of brush burned, requiring fire crews to revisit the charred grounds on Saturday morning to continue clean-up efforts and flare-up checks. Windham firefighters were on the road to the Moeckel Pond area at 3:30 p.m. on Friday and remained on the scene until 9 p.m. when Windham Fire Chief Thomas McPherson left the site under a state forestry unit until fire crews could return the following morning. The area that burned is just off Marblehead Road, a place where people frequently go on nature walks. Dry, windy conditions and the steep terrain made this fire hard to contain, forcing assistance from departments that are part of the state emergency task force. Responding towns included Hudson, Litchfield, Pelham, Derry, Londonderry, Atkinson, Auburn, Bedford, Merrimack, and Salem. Teams from Concord, NH and Massachusetts’ towns also helped fight the fire.

‘Friends of Rachel’ Program Remembers Columbine
April 13 to April 19 marked the second annual ‘Friends of Rachel Violence Prevention Week’ at Hudson Memorial School. Teachers and students participated by providing violence prevention quotes, such as “An eye-for-an-eye makes the whole world blind” by Mahatma Gandhi. These quotes were read during morning and afternoon announcements. Homerooms decorated their doors in a competition for the best door per grade. Students submitted posters and poems to be posted in the halls. The competition ended on Friday — ‘Purple Day’ — when students and staff were asked to wear purple, the color for violence prevention. The winning homerooms were Mrs. Whitaker’s in 6th, Mr. Curtis and Ms. Schuch’s in 7th, and Mrs. Petersons in 8th, and they were treated to an ice cream party on April 20. The school recognized April 20 as the 10th anniversary of the Columbine shooting, where the first student shot was Rachel Joy Scott, the inspiration for the Friends of Rachel program. The school honored this anniversary with a reading of the 13 victims’ names and a moment of silence in their memory. In the morning, the Friends of Rachel members placed their handprints on a mural dedicated to making a chain reaction of kindness. The mural was designed by 7th graders Kelsi Woodard and Victoria LaRoche and painted by Jan Walsh, Memorial’s art teacher. The wall painting stands as a reminder to “Start a Chain Reaction of Kindness”. For more information on the Friends of Rachel program, see ‘Rachel’s Challenge’ link on the HMS website.

Hudson resident Ashley Dumont took home top honors when she was crowned the 2009 Miss New Hampshire Junior Teenager on March 14, 2009 at the Daniel Webster College, in Nashua, NH. Pageant winners from all over the state came to compete in the New Hampshire Teenager Scholarship Pageant, to showcase their talents and achievements. Dumont received a $10,000 scholarship to Eckerd College. Dumont, 14, is a Hudson resident and a freshman at Alvirne High School, where she is actively involved in various clubs and organizations. She is an honor student and a member of the Future Business Leaders of America organization. Ashley is very involved in the community and service projects. She volunteers once a week at the Nashua Boys and Girls Club; she volunteered at the Harlem, NY and Burbank, CA Boys and Girls Clubs; she visited patients at the local hospital on Easter Sunday; she wrote love letters for ill children; she collected unused cell phones for our troops; and she organized and held an Easter Egg Hunt for local children. In her spare time, Dumont enjoys cheerleading and tumbling. She was on her school football and basketball varsity cheer team. She also enjoys shopping at the mall with her friends and babysitting. “I am fortunate to be part of this amazing scholarship pageant,” said Dumont. “As a state titleholder, I have the opportunity to serve as a role model to young women and make a difference in our community. In addition, I will be representing New Hampshire at the National Competition in Nashville, TN this July!”

Gravity Gym Transitions to Gold Gym
by Doug Robinson The word “competition” envisions the reader to think of battles to the finish, may the best man/woman win, or to drive the opponent into the ground for the sole purpose of claiming victory. In business, much of the same philosophy remains constant as Walmart takes on Kmart, and Rite Aid takes on CVS, and Hannaford takes on Stop & Shop and Market Basket. It comes down to market share, and the business with the largest market share, or sales volume, wins the competitive battle of market share. But two Hudson business entrepreneurs, who are also Hudson business competitors, entered into the competitive arena of business; together they sat down, side by side, and decided mutually how the Town of Hudson could benefit from a merger between their two companies. Gravity Gym, located in the Nottingham Plaza, Lowell Road, Hudson, opened their doors a little over a year ago as they filled the vacant space once occupied by the former Powerhouse Gym. When Powerhouse Gym went belly-up due to the owner failing to pay his rent, Gravity Gym opened their doors and welcomed the Powerhouse members into their new club. Gravity Gym owners Ralph Cipollone, of Windham, and his partner Frank Alexander turned the business around and they now provide the residents of Hudson and the local communities with a gym that is clean, friendly, and consistent – from hot water in the showers to equipment performance. The competitive nature of the gym business came into play when Chris Jordan, owner of Gold’s Gym, opened his gym at the 102 Plaza in Hudson. But, unknown to the residents of Hudson as well as the members of Gravity Gym, owners Chris Jordan and Frank Alexander have had a relationship of business competition dating back many years. In fact, their business sense of competition would not be compromised by of their friendship, which dates back to high school. Alexander of Gravity Gym and Jordan of Gold’s Gym have been best friends since high school. “It really came down to a flip of the coin,” commented Jordan. “We respect each other so much, we did not want to compete against each other, and we just want to remain friends as we have superior customer service as well as promote from within, Jordan promoted Gravity Gym employee Carola Mandeville to the position of Manager of the Lowell Road Gold’s Gym. Carola has the uncanny ability to know every customer, and she welcomes them by name as they enter the gym. When asked how she is able to know all the names, she simply replies, “My customers are important to me, and I wish to say hello to them by name, and that is important to me.” “We have never raised the contract fee of any member of our gym,” commented Jordan, in response to the changing of corporate structure to the gym. “The fees will not change for the lifetime for any member of Gravity Gym. We value their membership. We value their commitment. And we value them. We will not raise the price of any Gravity Gym member. Period.” As with most change, more change comes; however, the change for Gravity Gym will come in the tangibles of better equipment, more televisions, and more personal trainers. Cbyex Arc trainers and life fitness cross trainers will soon be added to the inventory of present equipment located at the gym. “We are very excited to be back in Hudson. We have established a specific pass for the Gravity Gym members to visit and use the other Gold’s Gym

been for over 20 years. We each have several clubs, and what was most important to us is our friendship. When we win as friends, the community of Hudson wins, too. So I bought Gravity Gym and we will be converting the gym to the Gold Gym format.” “Gold’s is the original, the place where it all began. More than 40 years ago, Joe Gold opened a modest fitness center in Venice Beach, California and began a tradition of commitment, passion, and dedication that is now practiced at more than 600 locations across the globe,” writes Gold’s Gym. Today, many companies, such as Anheuser-Busch Inc., Bank of America, Coca Cola, Dell Inc., Department of Defense Education Activities, US Air Force, Home Depot, and the Department of Homeland Security have recognized Gold’s Gym as a leader in “knowing your strength”. “Gold’s gyms are built to help people realize their goals and find their inner strength.

Common Man Restaurants Donate to NH Food Bank and Dedicate Hundreds More
The Common Man family of restaurants in NH has donated $22,000 to the NH Food Bank and dedicated hundreds more to assist the non-profit in ending hunger in New Hampshire. Common Man CEO Jason Lyon and more than 40 members of the restaurant family’s management team visited the New Hampshire Food Bank and made the donation during a presentation to the organization’s volunteers and staff. “We are thrilled to announce our continued partnership with the New Hampshire Food Bank and unveil two exciting ways we’re getting our guests involved in supporting the work you do each day to end hunger in the Granite State,” said Lyon. Lyon said proceeds from a charity coupon book sold during December 2008, filled with monthly offers for the family of restaurants, were dedicated to the New Hampshire Food Bank, resulting in the $22,000 donation. He also announced the family of restaurants will dedicate $1 of every sale of a bottle of regular or sparkling water filtered with their new AquaHealth® sustainable water system to the New Hampshire Food Bank, and that AquaHealth, Inc. is joining the Common Man family in supporting the organization. “Our partners at AquaHealth have committed $100 per Common Man location, per contract year, to be donated to the charity of our choice, and that charity will be the New Hampshire Food Bank,” said Lyon. “We hope other businesses join us, as AquaHealth did, in supporting your work, so we can help end hunger together.” Dominique Rust, Vice President and COO of NH Catholic Charities and the NH Food Bank, said the donation will go a long way in helping the agency feed more than 70,000 residents through its 384 member agencies consisting of soup kitchens, food pantries, homeless shelters and elderly and child programs throughout the state. “We’ve registered 17 new agencies, confirming the increase in hungry people requesting food statewide,” said Rust. “By being here today, The Common Man is helping to answer our calls, and for that I am truly grateful.” Barclay Hansen, president of AquaHealth, Inc. said his company is proud to partner with the Common Man family, long known for its commitment to local communities. “We strive to partner with companies both private and non-profit on ways we can give back,” said Hansen. “The fact that the Common Man is a leader in giving back speaks for itself.” Lyon said The Common Man family has supported area agencies and the work of the New Hampshire Food Bank for decades, but increased its commitment to the Food Bank in 2007, when Lyon himself toured the facility after it faced a critical shortage and put out a plea for help. “I was astonished to see a warehouse full of bare shelves, yet the delivery trucks to take food to needy residents were still pulling in seeking food,” said Lyon. “It was at that time that we made a greater commitment to the New Hampshire Food Bank, donating $10,000 from our annual charity golf tournament that fall, and matching that with an additional $10,000 from our tournament in 2008.” Lyon said Common Man owner Alex Ray has always instilled in his teams that the Common Man family should serve as the cornerstone of the community, giving of their time and resources whenever they can. “Being in the food and hospitality industry, it makes sense that we work with the New Hampshire Food Bank to alleviate the critical food shortage and end hunger here at home,” said Lyon. The first Common Man restaurant opened in Ashland in 1971. Over the past 37 years, the family has grown to 14 restaurants, The Common Man Inn and Spa in Plymouth, and the Common Man Company Store in Ashland. Restaurants include Foster’s Boiler Room and The Italian Farmhouse in Plymouth; Common Man Express Deli in Ashland; the Common Man restaurants in Lincoln, Ashland, Concord, Windham and Merrimack; Tilt’n Diner in Tilton; Airport Diner in Manchester; and Lago, Camp, Town Docks and Lakehouse Grille in Church Landing at Mill Falls in Meredith. A Common Man Inn and restaurant are under construction in Claremont, and a new location in Portsmouth was recently acquired. All are set to open in late spring. For more information, visit

Thumbs Up?
“Thumbs up to Les at Morall Brake! Thanks for fixing my car when I brought it in on a Monday morning with no appointment and you were booked solid. You are the best mechanic in town!” “Thumbs up to the person or persons who planted the daffodils along Albuquerque in Litchfield. They look awesome.” “Thumbs down: Unions, the corner stone of this country? Are you kidding me? Big deal your man’s a beer guy, way to go! Don’t worry they will figure a way of getting rid of him somehow... I’ll bet your fridge is full of beer. Maybe he’s your hero (you must wear beer glasses). You apparently think it’s acceptable for the manner in which the union protects people. It’s okay to fail drug testing, steal from our town, drive recklessly, and so on without consequence. You should let the boys over at the Highway Department know where your man works so that when something is finally done about all of the offenders they can send over their resume (like they would even know what that is) and continue to be protected by a union.” “Thumbs up to our sons and their girls. Thanks so much for helping us out while Daddio recoups. You are the best.” Love, Mother Goose “Thumbs up to the awesome lawn on Stonewood Lane. It looks like Fenway Park. Nice job.” “Thumbs up to Litchfield’s Softball Coach Maynard for teaching Heather T. softball many years ago . She now plays on her company team as catcher and was MVP for , the first game way to go!” are blue collar communities we cannot afford the luxury of taking time off, we are just fortunate to have jobs in this recession.” “Thumbs down to the comment about the principal of Alvirne High School interfering with after-prom arrangements. He is just a very caring person and does not want to see one of his students hurt. You must be one of the parents planning on serving alcohol for your son and his friends. I hope you are not sorry the next day. At least he cares. Maybe you should.” “Thumbs down to the ‘thumbs down’ re: Alvirne School District comment. It looks like you didn’t even get the point of it’s ‘interfering’. I believe that the point was to not host after prom parties in which alcohol will be served or available. And even if it’s not served, kids sneak it in anyway. The point was to not host if you intend to serve alcohol, but, kids are kids and will sneak it in anyway. Too bad that you took it as interfering, and not caring, as I did.” �������������������������������������� ������������������ ������������������������������ ������������������������� ������������������������������ ���������������������������������������� ���������������������������������������� ����������������������������������� ����������������������������� �������������������������� ����������������� ������������������������������������� ������������������������������������ ������������������
