Improvements
at Hudson
Schools
Discussed
by Lynne Ober
Hudson has a number of older school
buildings, and, as anyone who owns
any building is aware, buildings need
maintenance. The Hudson School Board
created a District Facilities Assessment
Committee to review needed maintenance.
This committee is co-chaired by Elaine Brody
and Bernie Manor, both of whom have been
involved in a number of building projects both
for the school district and for other entities.
The committee has now suggested that the
school board proceed with a warrant article
that will appear on the March, 2013 ballot.
This suggestion comes have reviewing an
engineering report done on the Dr. H.O. Smith
School and evaluation of other buildings.
Brody and Manor co-authored a memo for
Superintendent Bryan Lane after an October
9 meeting with the combined school facilities
sub-committees. The sub-committees were
divided into three areas, Zone A elementary,
which encompassed both Dr. H.O. Smith
School and Library Street School, Alvirne High
School and the school district athletic felds.
The committee members have given
a great deal of thought and study to these
recommendations, wrote Brody and Manor.
Because of the age of the Smith school,
the school district had paid for a thorough
engineering study so that the school
board, school facility committee, staff and
administration would understand where
modifcations could safely be made and
where undertaking modifcations would not
be successful because of the current structure
of the building.
The goal for the Zone A schools would
be to expand the Dr. H.O. Smith School for
grades 1 through 5 and then to use Library
Street School as a district wide Preschool
and Kindergarten facility. This is not a new
goal for this district as several school boards
have looked at and approved this proposed
confguration.
To accomplish this, a number of tasks at
the Dr. H. Smith School would need to be
accomplished. Unfortunately the engineering
report showed that the classroom wing built
circa 1950 was not as structurally sound as
the rest of the school and renovation was
not advised. Therefore this wing would be
demolished if this plan were approved by the
voters.
Once the classroom wind is demolished,
the plan is to maintain the structural integrity
of the original 1930s Dr. H.O. Smith building
while adding a new addition on the south side
to include a new gym and approximately 26
classrooms. The current gym could then be
renovated into a new cafeteria.
Library Street School would be very suitable
for being used as a district wide preschool and
kindergarten facility and minimal renovations
would be needed.
Alvirne High School is another of the older
schools in Hudson and the goal would be to
upgrade it to meet the 21st century needs of
students, faculty, and residents of the town of
Hudson.
Since Alvirne was built federal ADA laws
have been passed and while Alvirne does
meet those needs, it requires effort. The frst
goal in renovations would be to make the
entire school easily ADA accessible.
The committee recommends building
an addition that might be connected to the
current building, but would complement
the current career technical center. This
addition would house an auditorium as
well as educational space for arts, media
and other technology classes. It was further
recommended that the gym be renovated
and other common areas undergo a space
evaluation to include storage, functional usage
and security.
The school district has long provided feld
usage for town sports teams as well as school
teams. As a result felds are frequently used
and maintenance is diffcult as there are not
enough felds to allow for rotation of felds.
The committee recommended rehabbing all
of the felds at Hudson Memorial School and
to add felds at Alvirne High School so that
feld rotation could occur. In addition, it was
recommended that a consultant be hired to
assess all district athletic felds and make a
plan to maximize usage.
Over the next few weeks, the school board
and administration will have to fnalize not
only their budget, but also their warrant
articles. Budget Committee hearings will
be televised and there will be both a public
hearing in early January and a deliberative
session in late January or early February on all
budgetary proposals.

The phrase most commonly used to describe the sixth annual three day
Hudson PumpkinFest was family friendly. The Hudson Kiwanis Club
sponsored the festival, which was held October 12-14 on the grounds of the
Hudson Hills House.
Originally, I wanted to copy Keene Pumpkin Fest, but I knew this had the
potential to be as big as some of the major New Hampshire fairs, Hudson
Kiwanis Club President Mike Falzone said.
The festivities included many events for children such as a petting zoo,
games, rides, food, face painting, as well as raffes, a car show featuring 44
classic antique cars, a craft fair, hayrides, live music, freworks, and several
rows of a variety of vendors with customized merchandise such as home
made jewelry and bath soaps.
Everyone was walking around having a good time. It was a big success
here. The board breaking demonstration was a big success, said Quinn
Naamani, instructor at Granite State American Kenpo Karate in Litchfeld,
who hopes to return as a vendor next year.
All the proceeds Kiwanis generated through the weekend (the money
made through raffes, tickets, and $2 parking donations) went toward college
scholarships for high school students from Alvirne High School and Campbell
High School.

Early Start Childrens Centers
Nursery School Students
Enjoy Hudsons Treasures
submitted by Early Start Childrens Center
On a bright sunny fall day at the end of September, the 3
year olds from Early Start Childrens Center got to go on a big
adventure: their frst feld trip!
The adventure started with a trip to Alvirne High Schools
Agricultural Farm where they were greeted by Farmer Nadeau
and his helper, Danielle. The children had been learning
about animals that live on the farm as part of their September
curriculum. Danielle introduced the children to all the animals.
They were able to see cows, sheep, chickens and donkeys. They
even got to see the big tractor in action in the cornfeld.
Then it was on to Bensons for a picnic lunch, a romp in the
gorilla cage, and fun on the playground. After this very busy day
they went back to the center where they all took a well-deserved
nap.
Some of the chaperones and children had never been to the
farm or the park and were pleased to discover these treasures
right in their own town.

Electronic Message Sign
Donation Offered to Alvirne
by Lynne Ober
Alvirne High School Principal Steve Beals wrote a
memo to Superintendent Bryan Lane about a possible
donation of a large electronic message sign that would
be installed in front of Alvirne High School.
Beals reported that Arthur Bartlett, from Barlo Signs,
has offered to donate a new school sign to Alvirne High
School and also noted that this donation has convincing
support of the Alvirne Trustees, who at a recent meeting
strongly supported the donation and addition to the front
of the Alvirne property.
The sign would be a double-sided illuminated display
with a top cabinet 4 feet 3 inches by 11 feet 4 3/16
inches and a double sided 16mm electronic message
center 50 3/8 inches by 88 3/16 inches with Pole cover 4
feet 9 inches high by 11 feet 4 3/16 inches wide by over
height of 13 feet .5inches. There are two full color digital
display message centers with the sign. The mid- section
of pole cover has logo graphics with overall dimensions
of 3 feet in height. Communication with the sign
message center is via a wireless interface. According to
Barlo Signs the sign can withstand temperatures of 20
degrees Celsius to 60 degrees Celsius.
With the acceptance of the donation, the Hudson
School District would be responsible for installing a
new electrical service panel to the sign. The cost for the
needed electrical materials is approximately $2,000 and
can be completed by Barlos electrician. A trench would
need to be dug to facilitate the needed electrical panel
and Barlo recommended that the project budget include
approximately $500 for repairing any damage to the
irrigation system.
The total cost of the proposed donation would be
$74,495. Therefore, Bartlett suggested that the school
board think about buying a two-year maintenance
agreement to protect this asset and quoted the annual
cost at $2,210 with the total amount of a two-year
maintenance agreement being $4,420.
Familiar Face to Leave Alvirne
by Lynne Ober
For years Jerry Michaud has been one of the happiest
faces at Alvirne High School. Michaud has been Head
Custodian and has been a constant fgure throughout the
school. He will retire on December 31, 2012.
The students have brought me a great deal of
happiness and I will miss them, said Michaud. Every
fall a new class of students arrived and before they
graduated, Michaud knew their names and greeted them
by name. But, it wasnt only student names, Michaud
learned parent names as well as knowing all the staff by
name. He greeted one and all with a big smile.
He helped with many events over the years and was
always ready to help make every event as pleasant and
happy as it could be. He was adopted by many of the
classes. Remember the day he kissed the cow? He was
part of the Alvirne High School community and will be
missed.
For as long as anyone can really remember, Jerry
Michaud has been an important part of the culture of
Alvirne High School, said Superintendent and former
Alvirne High School Principal, Bryan Lane. With
a big voice, a kind word, a welcoming smile and a
helping hand Jerry has been there to support the Alvirne
community at every turn. He has a genuine concern for
the students and always wants to see the best in them.
Lane recalled that the yearbook was dedicated to Jerry
on multiple occasions which demonstrated the students
respect and caring for him.
Staff members have always known that he will
be there to support them in their efforts by working
with his crew to create a clean and safe educational
environment. When the students and staff return from
the holiday break in January, the school day will go on
but there will be a moment in their day when they feel
that something is missing The spirit of Jerry Michaud
always be in the building and I have a feeling that we
will see him at Alvirne supporting students for a long
time to come. Thank you Jerry, concluded Lane.

An Unwelcomed Welcome
by Trisha Rose Donadio,
Bishop Guertin Intern
What is it like to live in Hudson
while going to school in Nashua? The
experience is different for each person;
however, there are two general insights.
Many agree that it is diffcult for Bishop
Guertin (BG) students to feel accepted
in Hudson because BG and Alvirne have
such intense competition on and off the
sports felds. Bishop Guertin senior and
former Presentation of Mary Academy
student, Rachael LeBel, states, My
close friends have never made me feel
unwelcomed, but there was always that
rivalry where people comment, Oh yeah
you go to BG like they dont understand
or theres a barrier. Another prior Hudson
student, Melyssa Millett, agrees saying, In
all honesty, ever
since everyone
found out I was
going to BG,
there was an
obvious feeling
of contempt
towards me.
Generally,
Hudson students
harbor a
grudge toward
those students
who chose to
leave Alvirne
for BG. One
opinion is that
this grudge is
because Alvirne
students do
not understand
why people
want to leave.
Yes, I still feel
accepted by
some but not
all. Some think
that I am some
sort of traitor but
they dont even
understand why I had to [leave], says
Grant Hodgkins. However the opinion
of those people who had built a network
of strong bonds in Hudson would differ,
because some students still feel connected
and welcomed throughout Hudson, due
to their close-knit friends. One student,
Michaela Cunningham, comments, I
struggled at frst, but generally I feel
accepted by my old friends and try to
keep up with them as much as possible!
Whether or not a person still feels
accepted seems to really depend on their
experiences in middle school. Students
who had an extremely large group of
close-knit friends agree that they still feel
welcome and connected, but students
who had smaller friend groups do not.
Romneys Dishonesty
I think the Vice President very well knows that sometimes the words
dont come out of your mouth the right way. Congressman Paul Ryan
was quoted saying this at the Vice Presidential debate on October 10th to
Vice President Joe Biden. Tis quote he said is quite an understatement for
the Romney Ryan campaign, as we have seen over the past months. With
endless comments that perhaps werent put the way they had intended
them to be heard, the Romney Ryan campaign has fallen short of being
completely honest with the American people.
As a middle class American, I feel as though it is a pressing duty of
whoever is going to run the country, to be honest with their citizens. I
for one, feel as though Mitt Romney has taken advantage of his successes
and gone to such lengths as to blinding us consistently with no factual
information. Be it with his tax plan which would indefnitely burden
the middle class much more than help it, or that Obama-care would be
repealed to save more money than not, unfailing, dishonesty has been given
by Romney and his fellow supporters, and that will not be tolerated. If Mitt
Romney and his team cant be honest to us now, how can we trust him to be
honest with us if he were elected President?

Preserve the NH Advantage,
Vote No on Amending Our Constitution,
Preserve Our Rights
November 6 NH will vote on a constitutional amendment that would ban
any new tax on the income earned by a natural person. Many in favor of
such an amendment cite the NH advantage enjoyed by having no personal
income tax. Based on the Bureau of Labor Statistics fgures published
9/21/2012, of the fve states with the lowest unemployment rates for August
2012 only one state had no personal income tax. Of the 9 states with no
personal income tax four states or 44 percent had unemployment rates
above the national unemployment rate, including Nevada with the highest
unemployment rate in the country. Of the 41 states with a personal income
tax 17 states or 41 percent had unemployment rates above the national
unemployment rate. NH advantage you decide. Tis amendment will
eliminate (unless the Constitution is again amended) the ability to improve
our states burdensome and complex tax system to insure NH has the best
fscal plan to meet our states present and future needs. In a news release,
10/27/2011 House Speaker William OBrien is quoted Te passage of
CACR 13 is a great protection against future generation big spenders and
ensures the states tradition of frugality and local control. Tis amendment
will only deny and eliminate local control to all future citizens and voters in
NH. Tis amendment will place the future tax burden squarely on property
owners and business owners. Vote no and preserve the right of our citizens
to make the right decisions for this state through the legislative process,
protect the NH advantage.
Kevin Waggoner, Litchfeld
Encyclopedia of Ulery
I am sure many readers are familiar with the political musings of
Hudson resident Jordan Ulery? Hes the one who bloviates about socialism,
communism, and fascism creeping into our society, ad nauseam. Heres a
morsel from last week:
I recently saw a lawn sign proclaiming Forward I was a little taken
aback because the sign was in the lawn of a nice man, good father and
political activist My confusion was with the slogan forward. Tat term
is the institutional phrase of socialism.
What follows is Mr. Ulerys feeble attempt to convince readers that the
word forward evokes a socialist connotation, not the positive interpretation
most people associate with this word. He provides examples of the word
forward being connected to past socialist parties, fgures, and websites - as
if to the trained eye, the word originated, is strictly utilized, and intrinsically
perceived as a socialist code word. In what society?
In the Encyclopedia of Ulery, we are liable to fnd these socialist quotes:
If you cant fy then run, if you cant run then walk, if you cant walk then
crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward. (Martin
Luther King Jr.)
But just as they did in Philadelphia when they were writing the
constitution, sooner or later, youve got to compromise. Youve got to start
making the compromises that arrive at a consensus and move the country
forward. (Colin Powell)
Be courageous! Have faith! Go forward! (Tomas Edison)
Having thus chosen our course,
without guile and with pure
purpose, let us renew our trust
in God, and go forward without
fear and with manly hearts. (Abe
Lincoln)
Dont we want our children to
move forward? Dont we want a
forward-thinking society? Arent we
proud of the forward gains we have
made in this country, like abolishing
slavery, providing women the
right to vote, enacting labor laws,
prohibiting child labor, advancing
medicine, and guaranteeing civil
rights? Isnt it the aim of civilized
society to move forward?
Surely Mr. Ulery knows the
word forward is synonymous with
advancement, but why would he
have us believe diferently? Ill tell you why - by introducing Mr. Ulery to
another word he wont so easily manipulate - he is unscrupulous.
Whatever your political leaning might be - Democrat, Republican,
Libertarian, Independent - do you really want people with such views
working for us? Even if you are a staunch Republican, wont you please
consider skipping Jordan Ulerys name and casting your vote, instead, for a
less extreme Republican candidate?
In this request, fellow Hudson voters, I hope I dont come across as too
forward.
Stephen McClure, Hudson
Clearing the Air
Unlike some of the uninformed and misinformed, I am writing this
letter in response to seven thumbs down/up in the Hudson~Litchfeld News
newspaper on October 12, 2012.
1. Lets start with Romney getting rid of Big Bird. Romney doesnt want
to get rid of Big Bird. Romney doesnt want to borrow any more money
from China, that pays or supports anything, that has no fnancial value to
reducing the four trillion debt that Pres. Obama has racked up during his
frst four years in ofce. Romney wants PBS to become self-funding from
the people who watch it and want it to continue.
2. Te Tea Party is nothing but Americas Taliban. I bet the same person
believes that the Occupy groups were angels and helped the people in the
U.S. Te Tea Partys sole desire is to reduce taxes.
3. Fox news and MSNBC are not reporting the news but are selling it to
the less educated base, who buy it and assume it is the truth. Fox news leans
to the republicans and MSNBC leans more to the liberals. Te uneducated
are the people who should be watching these programs and opinions to help
them make more informed decisions. Tey should not follow the leader but
make their better-informed decisions.
4. Tumbs Up to abortions, same sex marriage, burning bibles and free
speech. I wonder if the Hudson~Litchfeld News helped correct this persons
spelling. You belong in another country to become educated to the fact
you live in the best country in the world and if you said something like the
above, you would fnd out what a blessing you are able to give your opinion
as warped as it is.
5/6. Te response people received when they were confronted by
Democrats trying to sell their candidate was typical of the Pres. Obamas
administration. Te choice of Pres. Obama and Kuster follow that same
path. Te advice in the Hudson~Litchfeld News of spend their energy
elsewhere, like helping and growing up are good advice.
7. Even some Republicans are misinformed. Tis person indicates that
Pres. Obama is not a Muslim. In fact he is a Muslim and he himself has said
so. Secondly, his actions of holding Muslim dinners in the White House
and not performing many of the functions that every president has done for
many years, indicate his favoritism to the Muslim world. Te ring on his
fnger he has worn since he was a young man. It is the same ring that his
wife placed on his fnger when they were married. It has Muslim writing on
it and shows his priorities.
He does use the United Nations to make decisions that he doesnt want to
make. He also knows that any actions against the middle east will be vetoed
by Russia and China. We should get out of the United Nations, they do
absolutely nothing for the USA.
Read a book! Te only books you need to read are the two books he
wrote to fnd out where his feeling lean. Te Washington Post and News Week
which are very liberal publications have just come out with very unfavorable
views of his presidency. Its about time to stop the favoritism he has received
from the media.
I would like Republicans who are misinformed like you to get the facts
before telling people they are ignorant and have unsubstantiated comments.
Bob Wilkie, Hudson
Vote Yes on Question 2
Former Justice Broderick wrote an editorial urging no on Question 2
citing political infuence in the courts. What the former Justice failed to
mention is that during the crafting of this question members of the current
Supreme Court were heavily engaged in the process, suggesting wording and
suggesting compromise with the sponsors.

Te founding Fathers of the nation and of New Hampshire were students of
history and were well aware of the danger of judicial activism; activism that has
redefned cherish to mean pay for. Even a fourth grader visiting the State
House knows that wrong! Indeed, the Broderick court had to import out-of-state
case law to fnd a tentative justifcation for their decision.
All question 2 does is return to the people of New Hampshire the right,
through their elected Representatives, the ability to create rules, with the court,
that efect the operations of the court. Most of the wording of the question is
current constitutional language with the rules sharing added to return to we, the
people the ability to govern ourselves, rather than be subjects of rules that carry
the weight of law mandated by unelected judges.
Jordan Ulery, Hudson
Knowles for State Representatives
When the economy was robust we had a balance of State Representatives
that grew our economy and helped defne the New Hampshire Advantage.
We have had cycles of Conservative and Progressive government and have had
legislation by consensus and now by overwhelming control of the government.
John Knowles and Mary Ann Knowles have tirelessly worked for the betterment
of Hudson within the towns government in multiple capacities, and have been
our State Representatives. Tey are without a doubt dedicated to public service.
John Knowles and Mary Ann Knowles take seriously the responsibilities of
representation with 100 percent dedicated attendance and attention to detail.
Both John Knowles and Mary Ann Knowles are known as fair minded,
principled people who are concerned for our welfare and willing to step up to
help Hudson maintain its advantage as a town with distinguished recognition
both in New Hampshire and nationally. It is having such volunteers that make
Hudson the best of the best. Mary Ann Knowles and John Knowles have helped
shape the fabric of their home town and have contributed to making New
Hampshire grow with reasoned decisions that balance the needs of the people of
New Hampshire with constitutionally guaranteed responsibilities and freedoms.
John Knowles and Mary Ann Knowles are concerned citizens who conscientiously
put themselves out to help run the business of the State for the people of their
district, and I endorse them to return to Concord to be State Representatives for
Hudson and Pelham (District 37).
Vivian L. McGuire, Hudson
Obamas Shortcomings
Te President is asking us for four more years to fnish what he started. If he
does the country isnt likely to get the hope and change we expected. Remember
when he said that new programs werent going to add a dime to the defcit?
With a record defcit and trillions added to the debt each year, his record speaks
loudly for itself and tells a very diferent story.
We continue to lose ground to other countries in terms of our childrens
educational attainment. Tis hurts their long-term employment prospects and
our ability to compete globally. Despite this, the President has given many states
waivers of the 2001 Education Law for developing math and reading profciency
standards. Ten he suggests that we should hire 100,000 more teachers - perhaps
to teach to those lower standards.
He has dashed hopes of energy independence by stifing exploration and
drilling of known reserves with years long approval processes -if work is
permitted to start at all. In the meantime, gas prices rise almost daily. He has
also lost millions of taxpayers dollars investing in failed energy companies, such
as Solyndra. Why should taxpayers money be put at risk? Tat should be left to
venture capitalists.
As for the economy, taxpayers are waiting for the $25 billion that has not
yet been recovered from the successful auto bailout, and billions more from
other bailout/stimulus programs. More critically, in the absence of government
action, we will reach the fscal clif in less than 90 days. Tis is a tsunami
with a powerful combination of higher payroll taxes, elimination of extended
unemployment benefts, elimination of the Bush tax cuts, and the extension
of the Alternative Minimum Tax to millions of taxpayers. Te Congressional
Budget Of ces estimates the cost to taxpayers will be $400 billion! More than
90 percent of taxpayers will see tax increases in January. How can that help a
struggling economy and spur job creation?
But there is more - the Presidents Afordable Care legislation. Women make
the majority of healthcare decisions for their families and they see the adverse
afects. With more government-mandated coverage and taxes on medical
equipment makers and drug companies, virtually everyones premiums are
rising signifcantly. As with all government programs, there is no free lunch.
According to the Congressional Budget Of ce, an estimated that 30 million
people will still not be covered. Tey also estimate that 8-9 million people will
lose employer coverage and be directed to insurance exchanges. For people who
do gain coverage, between one third and one half will be rolled into Medicaid,
a program that is barely able to cover current costs. Critically, 30 percent of
doctors no longer accept Medicaid patients because government reimbursements
dont cover their costs. For young adults purchasing on their own, despite being
the healthiest age group, their costs are increasing by 19 percent to 30 percent.
Tis is not the afordable care that people anticipated.
Not content with healthcare, the President has been trying to remake the
rest of the economy. Unfortunately, he doesnt have Clintons ability to develop
strong bi-partisan coalitions to do what needs to be done. Te President
has instead focused on income redistribution. Rather than shu ing around
shrinking slivers of a weak economy, we need to dramatically grow it for everyone
to beneft. If this is the Presidents vision of future prosperity, it is time for the
country to refocus and demand a new direction.
Jean Sordillo, Litchfeld
A Plea for Reason
I dont know about other Hudson residents, but I for one am tired of
the vitriolic nonsense that often clutters these editorial pages with regard to
President Obama. In this newspaper, there has been a relentless stream of screeds
proclaiming that our president is a
communist, socialist and sometimes
even a Nazi. Never mind that
communist ideology is on the far left of
the spectrum of political thought while
Nazism is on the far right, our president
is neither. A thoughtful person only
has to examine the severe policies of
the former Soviet Union to understand
communism, or look at the high tax
rates and government services in Europe
to get a true idea of socialism. None of
this presidents policies even come close
to either extreme, the rantings of Rush
Limbaugh and Fox News aside.
People may disagree with President
Obamas policies and that is their right,
but this constant barrage of nonsense
that envisions jackbooted thugs
marching down our streets at the whim
of the president is beyond nonsensical.
Such letters profess not only ignorance
of the presidents policies, but a total disrespect for our form of government.
President Obama was elected by the citizens of the United States of America,
and as such, deserves the respect that any president ought to be aforded. As
a Democrat, I had to live with eight years of what I consider the reckless war-
mongering policies of George W. Bush. Still, I respected the of ce of the
president and accepted the will of the American electorate.
People who describe drastic scenarios of government takeover of our lives
under this administration clearly dont know how Americas political process
works. Our founding fathers instituted a government of checks and balances.
Having risked their lives, honors and fortunes to overthrow a tyrannical
monarchy, they ensured that our government would never concentrate all power
into the hands of an individual. Te Congress passes laws and can override any
veto that the president makes. Te judiciary interprets the laws to ensure that
they are applied according to the principles of our constitution. Tis system
of government guarantees that no one man or woman can control the reins
of government and force his or her wishes and ideologies on the citizens of
America.
Furthermore, our military is not some third-world group of thugs who are
controlled by a few imperious generals with junta fantasies. Our military is
made up of dedicated men and women who have sworn to defend our freedoms.
To suggest otherwise is ignorant at best and unpatriotic at worst. Finally, to
those letter writers who cite the holocaust or the massacres under the hands
of communist despots as an example of where our country is headed - please
stop that nonsense. To suggest that such a catastrophic moral outrage could be
perpetrated by our elected leaders shows an incomprehensible lack of respect for
both our government and the tragic souls who were lost during those horrifc
times in human history.
If anyone wants to tout the virtues of their candidate, then thats admirable
and completely acceptable in our free society. Likewise, reasoned arguments
about the shortcomings of candidates with whom you disagree are equally
relevant and right. Nonsensical ramblings about the government crushing
our lives, our freedom and our souls in nightmarish scenarios serve no useful
purpose and are simply paranoid rants that do nothing to further the cause of
rational, civilized debate in our society.
Mike Donlin, Hudson
Something Is Very Wrong
We can feel it in our gut. We can sense that things arent right. Our current
President repeatedly tells us about hopeful signs, yet our eyes and ears are
witnessing a completely diferent personal reality. Something is very wrong.
Some of us have lost our jobs, and in some cases for years. Many of us have
had our pay reduced more than once, in exchange for preserving our jobs. Yet we
are told that we have been in a midst of an economic recovery. Something is very
wrong.
In less than four years, the spending trajectory planned by this President
will create more debt than all his predecessors have generated in 223 years;
from George Washington to George W. Bush combined. All this to fund
Federal control of our healthcare, and to supposedly provide a Stimulus for
creating jobs. Yet weve just witnessed the longest stretch of unemployment
above 8 percent that our country has ever experienced. Never in our history
have so many record numbers of people continue to depend on unemployment
compensation, welfare, food stamps, and housing assistance. Many of our
relatives, friends, or neighbors are still hurting, and our roads and bridges are still
in disrepair. Yet Trillions of dollars have already been spent to supposedly correct
these problems. Where are the results? Something is very wrong.
Tink of your own family budget. Would you max-out all your credit cards by
spending tens of thousands of dollars, and then try to fnd ways to increase your
spending in order work your way out of that debt - all the while, your income
declines? Does that make any sense? Something is very wrong.
When the ship is sinking, you dont reverse the sinking process by spending
your frst four years making the leak larger. Ten as the ship continues to list,
and the passengers begin to question the results, this President asks for four more
years to continue the same policies, insisting that we will eventually experience a
diferent outcome. Something is very wrong.
Tere is still time to reverse these troubled times. However, that time is short
- very short.
Please consider joining us in righting this great Ship of State called America.
With your help, we will succeed in restoring the American Dream for all
Americans. You will make the diference!

I actually like it a little better than Old Home Days. Its more kid
friendly. Theres more stuff to do for the kids with the petting zoo,
said Litchfeld resident Donald Hudon.
Among the many kid friendly events was a special time slot on
Sunday set aside for children to come dressed in their Halloween
costumes and have a chance to do some early trick or treating. The
vendors supplied candy for the children. The morning rain failed to
dampen the Halloween spirits, as dozens of children still showed up
early Sunday afternoon for trick or treating.
I think its a small town feel but there are a lot of things to do. I
think the kids games and trick or treating was great and the vendors
were really fun. You cant just go to the store and buy that kind of
stuff. Its unique, said new Hudson resident Rebecca Abreau.
Among the thousands of visitors to the festival were two notable
faces: New Hampshire Republican governor candidate Ovide
Lamontagne and Tagg Romney, son of the Republican Presidential
nominee Mitt Romney.
I think its beautiful property, and I think its great the local
community can get behind a good cause like this and have fun doing
it, Lamontagne said .
Both Lamontagne and Romney made a point of stopping to visit
with the public, posing for pictures, and shaking hands with all their
supporters.
Its a beautiful town and a beautiful day and Im
happy to be here campaigning for my dad, said
Romney. Theres been a lot of enthusiasm in New
Hampshire and I feel that were going to win here and
in lots of other states too. New Hampshire is a second
home for us.
Many residents were happy to talk to Lamontagne
and Romney.
I was surprised. It was the last thing I expected
to see. It was nice to meet him, said Sue Bengston,
owner of Nutfeld Soapworks, who met Romney when
he came to her vendor table.
There was also a lot of enthusiasm about the varied
musical talents over the weekend. This entertainment
lineup included the Campbell High School Band,
cover rock band Rock Daddys, Lucid, Something 5
and Stage Craft with soloist Amanda Kenerson of Lets
Play Music, Derry, and one of the worship teams from
Grace Fellowship Church in Nashua. The four person
group performed Christian praise and
worship music, covering songs by
Toby Mack, Matt Redman, and the
Newsboys, in addition to original
songs written by Grace Fellowship
worship leader Bob Ayala and group
member Micah Groder.
Its not just one genre. They
have rock and roll and a little bit of
country, Hudson resident Kyle Kostro
said about the worship music.
Rock Daddys was also a big hit for
the weekend. The Hudson based four
person cover rock band was formed
in 2004. They cover rock songs from
the last 40 years and play at private
parties and local events. They have
performed in Massachusetts, Maine,
Connecticut, Vermont, and Rhode
Island.
The Hudson Kiwanis Club sponsors
other annual events around town.
These events include the Fishing
Derby at Robinson Pond in the winter
and their yard sale at the Kiwanis Hall
in the spring.
The Kiwanis Club members werent
the only ones who made the 2012
PumpkinFest possible. Volunteers from the Alvirne and Campbell Key Clubs,
Masons, and the Hudson/Litchfeld Youth Football and Cheer all volunteered to
help park cars and set up tables. The Boy Scouts also camped out behind the
rows of vendors to take shifts watching over the premises each night after it closed
for the day.

It may not have been earth shattering,
but Tuesday evenings earthquake caused
quite the stir among some Southern New
Hampshire residents.
The quake was centered near Hollis,
ME, but shocks from the 4.0 magnitude
earthquake were felt in both Hillsborough
and Rockingham Counties. Cell phone
service was down for a while after the
quake, but lines were restored within a few
hours. There have been no widespread
reports of damage in Southern New
Hampshire.
Earthquakes are rare in New England, but
they are not completely unheard of. The
region can expect to see a few earthquakes
a year, but most do not register
above a 3.0. Regardless, the
Tuesday nights event was bound
to be a memorable one for many
area residents.
Everything shook for a
minute and then just silence. At
frst I thought I was imagining
things, and thanks to the world
of social media I knew it wasnt
just me, Mike Boutselis said.
Boutselis, an English teacher at
Campbell High School, left his
classroom shortly before the
ground started shaking.
The quake was large by
New Hampshire standards.
The National Geographic
Survey originally pinned the
tremors at a 4.6, but by 8
p.m., had lowered it down to
a 4.0. Still, some were taken off guard by
the experience, Sandy Russo, a long-time
Hudson resident said this was the frst time
she had felt one, My husband and I were
just sitting there, wide eyed. The house
and the foor was shaking, she said. Russo
added that earthquakes have always been
one of her biggest fear.
The mid evening shakes caught many off
guard, leaving some to speculate what had
happened before word spread that it was
indeed an earthquake, I thought it was a
big wind gust after this afternoons wind, but
my mothers rocking chair, with my mom in
it was moving too. That was the sign that
it was something a bit bigger than wind,
Regina Patty Hayes Andler wrote in a reply
to an Area News Group Facebook post.
It sounded like when the big plows
come by after a snowstorm, Dawn
Anderson Twombly said.
Still, the effects failed to faze some local
residents, We sat down to dinner, and
we didnt feel a thing, Lucy Wilkerson, of
Pelham said. Nor did Barbara OBrien, an
Area News Group Reporter feel it, I was at
the Windham School Board meeting, and
we didnt feel a thing, she said.
One of the last memorable earthquakes
happened in the spring of 2003, like
Tuesdays earthquake, there was no
widespread reported damage.
Earthquake Rattles Some, Missed by Others
Republican State Representatives, candidates and Len Lathrop, Editor in Chief of the Area News Group,
met at the o ces of the Area News Group to stuf Christmas stockings for the troops who will be in Afghanistan
this holiday season. Pictured are Fiona Kenney, granddaughter of Charlene Takesian, State Representative
Candidate Charlene Takesian and Paddy Culbert with State Representatives Russ and Lynne Ober, Bob
Haefner, Andy Renzullo, Shawn Jasper, Jordan Ulery and Len Lathrop. Te group flled 20 Christmas
stockings, donated two large shopping bags of ingredients for other stockings and contributed $70 to help
cover the cost of shipping the stockings to Afghanistan. Ted Luszey, MooreMart Director, accepted the groups
contribution. Former State Senator Bob Clegg said, Great job. It is appreciated by those overseas who hang
them wherever they can to add a little bit of home and the holidays to places like Afghanistan.

On a cold, blustery Friday night, the Alvirne
girls soccer team had 10 of its players saying
good-bye to the fans as they played their fnal
home game of their high school careers. It was a
mightily hard fought contest with maximal effort
from all players, but Coe Brown Academy snuck
away with a 1-0 victory over the Broncos.
At the beginning of the game, the 10 graduating
Alvirne seniors recognized the seniors from
Coe-Brown Academy with fowers and then
the parents, relatives and friends of the Alvirne
graduating 10 gathered on the feld for hugs,
gifts and pictures. Alvirne is losing the majority
of its squad this season including half of the
11 starters. The graduating seniors include Tri-
captains Daeghan Stone, Livia Gosselin and Alicia
Gillis along with Katie Gillum, Tabitha Meyer, Erin
Craven, Kendall Brigham, Sarah Rossetti, Louise
Hemvik, and Kelly Robinson.
The posters that lined the feld,
signs that were hung to show how
much this class will be missed and
the pre-game festivities certainly
had the Broncos pumped up as they
played with more energy in this
contest than they
have in some time.
The Broncos who
sported a record of
3-9-1 coming into
this contest hung
with Coe-Brown
who sported a
record of7-6 on the
year. Except for
the one lone goal
that squirted into
the net, Alvirne
was up to the task.
The Broncos
had several
great scoring
opportunities but
were turned away
multiple times, or
had shots that went
just wide or over the net. The entire team knew
the importance of this game for both their seniors
and their playoff hopes however the outcome
was not what all were hoping for. Besides the
play of the seniors, playing well for the Broncos
were Tana Tufts, Danielle Ross, Heather Barkley,
Sabrina Carter, Brianna Wiggins, Brittney Lambert
and Tori LaRoche who had 15 saves on the day.
The Broncos will fnish their season on the road
against St. Thomas Aquinas and Milford. Coach
Lance McAdam was proud of the effort the girls
put forth in this game. They really played hard the
entire contest. We will certainly miss our seniors
and we wish them the best of luck in the future.
Senior Night for Alvirne Girls Soccer
by Marc Ayotte
Heading into the fnal week of the regular
season, Alvirne found itself with a record of 8-8.
As such, they were nestled in the middle of the
Division I volleyball standings, looking ahead to
post season play. The Broncos have spent much of
the season hovering around the .500 mark, but a
three game win streak in the middle of September
improved their record to 5-4 before dropping the
last two games in the month.
They improved to 8-7 on October 12 with a
four game road win over Winnacunnet; 25-20,
22-25, 25-13, 25-23. Leading the Broncos offense
over the host Warriors was Marisa Coronis with
18 kills and nine service points along with Evelyn
Susko who collected 18 assists to go with her
16 service points. Kayla Gendreau and Jasmine
Hamilton chipped in with fve kills and four
kills, respectively. Defensively, Hamilton led the
Broncos in digs with 15 while Coronis was close
behind, recording a dozen.
On October 15, the Broncos made the short trip
to Nashua North, where after pushing the sixth
ranked Titans to the limit, they lost in straight sets
by scores of 18-25, 22-25 and 30-32. Playing well
in defeat for Alvirne was Marisa Coronis (13 digs,
12 kills), Evelyn Susko (8 digs, 7 assists) and Janna
Younghusband (8 service points, 8 assists).
The Broncos close out their regular season
schedule on Friday, October 19 when they host
Merrimack on Senior Night. They start their
playoff run on Wednesday, October 23, with
opponents and venue still to be determined.

The U13 Litchfeld Lady Cougars recently
competed in the North Andover 30th Annual
Columbus Day tournament. Playing up an age
group in the U14 Division the girls did not lose in
divisional play with wins over Triton Storm from
Rowley MA, North Andover Xtreme and a tie
against the eventual tournament winners Danvers.
Advancing to the semi-fnals the girls lost a hard
fought match to the North Andover Nitro 1-0. The
team competes in the Granite State Soccer League
where they are currently undefeated and leading
their division.

Button-up Your Home for Winter
Contractors Slow Season Makes Fall a Great Time
to Embark on Home Improvement Projects
As the leaves turn and fall to the ground, its time
to start thinking about buttoning up your home
for winter to keep you and your family healthy and
comfortable, your belongings safe and high energy
costs at bay.
Heating accounts for 34 percent of all annual
utility usage, according the U.S. Environmental Pro-
tection Agency (EPA). One of the most cost-effective
ways to improve the energy effciency and comfort
of your home is to seal and insulate the outer walls,
windows, doors and roof. By doing so, ENERGY
STAR estimates that a homeowner can save up to 20
percent on heating and cooling costs, the equivalent
to lowering up to 10 percent of total energy costs for
the year.
Here are a few ways to keep you and your family
healthy, your belongings safe and help lower your
heating bill:
Preventing the draft
Old, drafty windows and doors can account for
home energy loss of up to 30 percent, according to
the EPA, which means paying more in the winter
to heat your home. By replacing non-performing
windows and doors, homeowners can drastically
reduce heating costs. A typical home that replaces
its single-paned, clear glass windows with energy-
effcient windows can realize up to $501 in annual
savings, according to the EPA.
Windows are a great source of natural light, and
a great way to admire the picturesque snow-covered
trees and lawns while avoiding the brisk winter air;
however, they can also be the site of the biggest en-
ergy effciency offender, says David Harrison, chief
marketing offcer of Champion Windows,
one of the nations leading home improve-
ment companies. By installing our Com-
fort 365 Windows, homeowners can watch
their heating bills drop and rid their homes
of cold drafts.
Additionally, old or improperly installed
siding can also be the cause of drafts. How-
ever, by installing new, energy-effcient vi-
nyl siding and underlayment, homeowners
can increase a homes R-Value, a measure
of insulations ability to resist heat traveling
through it.
Installing energy-effcient siding can
help insulate your home against the cold,
reduce the amount of air fow into your
house, and make it easier to keep warm air in the
winter, says Harrison.
However, even the best windows, doors and sid-
ing can be drafty, if they are poorly installed. So its
important to make sure your home improvement is
completed by a quality contractor who has a long
history of being in the business so you can be sure
they will be around if you have any issues down the
road.
Prevent moisture
Water leakage from snow, ice and rain can cause
damage to the exterior and interior of your home.
This can result in costly damage to framing, structure
and insulation, more importantly it can cause issues
- like mold - that can be harmful to the health of
your family.
The roof is often the site of leaks in homes; how-
ever, by installing a new roof and taking the proper
precautions, leaks wont be a problem, especially
with Champions Comfort 365 Roof System, which
uses a fexible, self-healing barrier in all leak vulner-
able areas and is guaranteed with a limited lifetime
warranty. Your home will settle and shift over time
and extreme weather can be an issue, says Har-
rison. It is important to have barriers to provide
protection against leaks caused by roof setting and
extreme weather. Unlike many companies who only
use this on the north side of a home or treat it as
an upgrade, Champion uses a fexible, self-healing
barrier anywhere your homes roof joins and at all
attachment points.
Other ways to improve the seal of your home to
prevent moisture damage, drafts and improve energy
effciency include:
* Sealing leaks
* Adding insulation
* Sealing ducts
Now is the perfect time to make these improve-
ments, says Harrison. Since its the offseason,
homeowners can fnd great deals and attractive
fnancing to button up your home for winter.

and roof tips, check out the U.S. Department

Injury-prevention Tips for DIYers
When you fnally tackle
that home improvement
project youve been plan-
ning for a while, youre
probably eager to get the
job done quickly, well and
on-budget. Injuries can
delay your project, and
cost money for medical
expenses or even time lost
from your job. Its impor-
tant to take steps to prevent
injury.
Before starting the
work on your next home
improvement project,
consider these safety
measures to help keep you
injury-free and your work
accomplished on time:
* Stretch those muscles - Home improvement
projects often require you to use muscles that you
may not exercise often. Give your entire body a
good stretch, from your head to your feet. Be sure
to include your fngers and hands, since youll be
using them frequently.
* Appropriate clothing - Wearing the right
clothing for your project helps to protect you from
scrapes, contact with harmful chemicals and other
injuries. Closed-toed shoes, work gloves, a hat or
hard helmet, long-sleeved shirts and heavy pants
are all a good start. Also, remove any jewelry and
tie long hair back to avoid getting something caught
in machinery.
* Eliminate muscle strain - Fastening drywall
with nails and screws, sawing wood, painting large
walls - your wrists will be subject to a lot of strain,
which can easily result in pain after a long day of
work. Wearing the IMAK SmartGlove encourages
the hand and wrist to remain in a neutral position
- reducing the amount of straining movement, and
has fexible support for the full use of your hand.
This SmartGlove is also good for carpal tunnel syn-
drome, arthritis, tendonitis, hand fatigue and other
wrist and hand pain. The material is a washable cot-
ton blend for easy care.
* Wear eye and ear protection - Safety goggles
and ear plugs are two tools you, and anyone around
your work area, should be wearing while youre
working on your project. Safety goggles come in
handy when sawdust is fying through the air, and
ear plugs are recommended when using any type of
machinery.
* Take breaks - Make certain that your schedule
includes breaks where you can sit down, grab a
drink and rest for 15 minutes. If youre working on
a project in warm weather, schedule breaks more
frequently and drink plenty of water. Use the time
to also stretch your muscles, keeping them as lim-
ber as possible while you continue to work. Dont
overexert yourself attempting to get the project
done in a shorter amount of time. Your body will
work better and longer with less pain
at a slower pace, and when the project
is completed, youll be able to enjoy
the results of your work in comfort.
Protect yourself while working on
your DIY home improvement project,
so that youll be able to accomplish
the project in the time you scheduled,
without any injuries to slow you down.
Visit imakproducts.com to learn more
about protecting your hands and wrists
from pain.
Ready Your
Lawn for Winter
Though spring and summer are often seen as the
primary seasons for lawn care, fall is a great time to
ready a lawn for winter weather. The following tips
can help a lawn withstand winter weather and might
even make spring lawn care that much easier once the
warm weather returns.
* Fertilize. Fertilizing in the fall actually helps the
lawn come the early spring. Nutrients remain in the
soil throughout the winter months, and the lawn will
utilize those nutrients once the snow melts and the sun
and warmer weather return.
* Aerate. Lawns typically become compacted by
late summer, making it diffcult for the grass to thrive.
When fall arrives, aerating the lawn can relieve that
compaction by removing plugs or cores of soil from
the lawn. Once a law is aerated, the grass roots can
spread out and thicken the lawn. Its good to aerate in
the fall when grass roots grow.
* Edge the property. Homeowners who live in areas
that experience heavy snowfall in the winter might
want to edge their lawns in the fall. Edging can elimi-
nate the risk of damaging grass that hangs over curbs
and sidewalks when shoveling snow. Whats more, an
edged lawn adds aesthetic appeal to the property.
* Seed. Fall can be a great time to seed a lawn as
well. Overseeding a warm season lawn in the fall can
help a lawn resist diseases throughout the winter.
* Rake the leaves promptly. Dont allow leaves to
accumulate on the grass before fnally dusting off the
rake. If you allow leaves to sit on the lawn too long,
they can smother the grass. Dont allow leaves to reach
ankle length.

Public Channel 20 Abridged Schedule
by Michael Linehan
Tuesday witnessed a special meeting of the Hudson board of selectmen.
It was the frst in a series dedicated to reviewing the town budget. Each
department gives a presentation to summarize their expenditure from the
past year and the board takes this into consideration as they decide how to
allocate the budget for the upcoming year.
But frst, Assistant Assessor Jim Michaud presented the 2012 property
re-evaluation, especially in relation to its impact on the tax rate. The fnal
results illustrated an approximately 15.5 percent decrease in net taxable
valuation and an average decrease of 20.6 percent in assessed value of
residential single-family homes. This is the frst re-evaluation in fve years
and the very frst in which Hudson has accomplished an overall decrease
in total tax base.
Following this, Finance Director Kathy Carpentier made a request
in accordance with the tax rate. The motion would authorize the use
of $600,000 from the towns Unassigned Fund Balance to support the
new tax rate, approximately $19.63 per thousand as recommended by
Carpentier. This rate would be an 18.1 percent or $3.01 increase over last
years rate of $16.62 per thousand. After some brief discussion, the board
passed this motion.
Once this was done, the various departments began their presentations,
including the Highway, Community Development, and Engineering
branches. The selectmen gave designations to those budgets that they
would revisit for further inspection at a later date. Most groups reported
their budget summaries with little diffculty and few questions, but the
review became heated when the board debated with the Information
Technology department on the subject of their use of the GIS system,
suggesting that IT get rid of it and outsource to other towns. In the end,
no defnitive judgment was reached on this front, waiting for additional
information before making a decision.
The board will continue their budget reviews on October 18 and 25, as
well as their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, October 23.

Generic Filler for Patroit Seasonal Filler for HLN & PWN
Thumbs Up? Thumbs Down? Thumbs Up? Thumbs Down?
Thumbs down to Hudson
High School football. They
are rewarding kids who quit
last year by letting them play
starting rolls this year. They are
rewarding kids who didnt come
to the pre-season workouts,
while the kids who have been
working hard and staying with it
watch from the sidelines.
Thumbs up to the Hudson
Police checking for speeders on
Greeley Street. Its nice to see
them back there. That road has
been out of control lately.
Thumbs down to the Alvirne
football coaching staff, the
Alvirne Athletic Director and
the Hudson School Board.
Whatever happened to Coach
Cavanaugh, Coach Baldwin,
and Coach Higgins. Where
are they now? We would be
winning, not losing!
Thumbs up to the people
of New Hampshire. They do
a remarkable job, and thats
why we can vote frst in any
preliminaries, now that we
have to think about. We
have in Concord and also in
Washington a few Senators, a
few Representatives who have a
15% approval rating. If I owned
a business or a store and I had
a 15% approval rating, I would
be closed. I would not have
customers. For them to have the
audacity to ask us to vote them
back into offce is beyond my
imagination. We have brains,
and we have memories. We
know what theyre doing to us.
Thumbs up to the Hudson
Fire EMTs. I called 911 for
my husband, who I thought
was having a stroke. They were here in minutes.
They were very professional, knowledgeable, and
respectful to us. Fortunately, everything turned
out well. We think you guys are the best. Thank
you.
Thumbs down to the Campbell Varsity Girls
Volleyball Coach who continues to allow his
players to openly disrespect, make fun of, and
berate the JV Girls Volleyball Team. This does not
go unnoticed in the stands by family members,
other students, fans and our opposition. What
a horrible example youre setting by allowing it
to continue- we know youve been made aware.
What happened to being a team and supporting
each other? No one deserves the treatment these
girls are handing out. The CHS Athletic Directors
involvement is long overdue.
Thumbs down to the Hudson Post Offce,
twice I have driven over to the post offce to
purchase rolls of stamps only
to be turned away without
any. The frst time I was told
there just werent any to be
had, and today, I was told they
were locked up and only the
supervisor had the key and that
he/she would not be available
until the next day possibly.
Really? Is this a bizarre federal
regulation that rolls of stamps
have to be under lock and
key or do you just work for a
supervisor who is a control
freak? I needed the stamps for
business purposes so thanks for
wasting my time and gas, not
to mention the inconvenience
and aggravation you provided
instead.
Thumbs down to the new
neighborhood skate ramp...
there are so many kids in the
neighborhood now playing
at this house that someone is
going to get hurt when cars
drive down the street. The kids
dont even move when cars are
approaching. There is already a
skate park in Hudson...go play
there instead!
Thumbs up to the thumbs
down comment about the
Hudson Highway Department. I know what
this person is talking about because I am one
of her neighbors. How would one of you town
employees feel if you were told that your road
gets paved about every 100 years. Wake up
and listen to us Hudson residents. And while Im
at it, the corner of Bockus and Laurence Road is
in serious need of some paving and widening; I
dont mean a band-aid fx with
cold patch. Also, there needs
to be an island at the end of
Bockus, because people who
are coming from Laurence Road
and making a left turn almost
always cut their turn short. I
have had numerous incidents
where I was almost hit.
Thumbs up to the Campbell
High School JV and varsity
volleyball teams for raising over
$100 to help fght breast cancer
in their Dig Pink bake sale.
Great job!
Thumbs up to person who
stood up for the former SB
member and his weekly tirades.
Youre right. Hes allowed his
due to spout all his irrational
fears and bizarre alarmist
rhetoric just like anyone else.
Of course, the right to free
speech does not include the
right that we must give credence
to his wackiness, or even pay
attention to it. Besides, every
time he opens his mouth he
just reinforces the towns wise
decision at the voting booth.
Thumbs up to Burns Hill
Road. With all the landscaping
and home improvement projects
going on the street looks great.
Thumbs up to the person
whose tax return was sent back.
You are so right-----and sooooo
funny!
Thumbs down to the
employees at Haffners for their
cranky attitude. They are always
so grumpy, never smile, never
say thank you. Im sorry if you
dont like where you work, or
your life for that matter, but you
have a choice to change it. When a customer says
please and thank you with a smile, it is part of
your job to smile and say thank
you back.
Thumbs up to High School
coaches who play to win! If you
just want to coach to have fun
and be fair, then you shouldnt
be coaching high school
sports.
Thumbs up to Amy at the
Rodgers Memorial Library.
Your passion for your job is
so obvious! Thank you for
taking time to help me with my
questions about Dewey - your
patience was much appreciated.
I will defnitely be back!
Thumbs up on the well written article about
October Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness Month.
Thank you from all of us at Zachary M. Tompkins
Memorial Fund.
Thumbs down to the frefghter who feels that
residents are ungrateful! This is the career you
chose (salary $55,000). Do it because you love
it and you enjoy helping others, not to receive
praise. Most Military personal make $24,000 a
year working every holiday when deployed. They
save lives also, going back to bed at night with
the blood of their friends on their clothes, loosing
limbs at 18-years-old. Youre not the only one
with a dangerous job. Residents are appreciative.
They help you by paying-taxes towards your
salary and you provide a much needed service.
Its wrong to yell at residents, treating them like
criminals, when theyre not.
Thumbs down, to the frefghters comment
about people being ungrateful in this town, of his
service. If you feel that it is ok to talk to innocent
citizens, disrespectfully, when they are being
respectful of you is wrong. Your job might be
stressful, but its not okay to take it out on others.
I feel you might have PTSD, and should get
psychiatric help. If you see these images of these
people in your mind frequently, having trouble
sleeping, you should speak with your doctor.
Citizens appreciate your service and the risks
frefghters take everyday, but deserve respect if
they are being respectful.
Thumbs down to the Town of Hudson for
not realizing that we need to bring jobs to
Hudson to decrease the burden of property-
taxes on homeowners. This town needs to focus
on bringing in big businesses, a college, or
even a large car dealership (not just shopping-
centers and restaurants) to help offset the burden
of high property-taxes and our possible 20%
property-tax increase. Other rural NH towns
have larger businesses that pay a large portion of
property taxes. Why dont we? We have a nearly
empty industrial park and vacant Lowell-Road
commercial properties. Contact Coutu/Nadeau
and tell them, they need to do better than cutting
out the cost or postage.
Thumbs up to St. Kathryns Church in Hudson
for upholding the faith. If you dont go to church,
why would you want your child baptized? To say
it shouldnt depend on the parents attendance
shows an ignorance of the true meaning of the
Sacrament. At Baptism, the parents make a
promise to raise the child in the Catholic faith.
It is a promise before God. If they are already
not attending Mass, then why would the church
participate in a lie? It is not just to have a party
and should not be just to quiet the grandparents.
Thumbs down to the haters and doubters of
the football program at Alvirne. Alvirne footballs
coaches do not give up. Yes, its been a bumpy
ride. What everyone refuses acknowledge is
Alvirne threatening the playoffs/making the
playoffs twice in four years.
Thumbs up to the football coaching staff at
Alvirne High School! I am tired of listening to
people complain about the coaches at Alvirne
High School. If you would listen to your kids and
how they really feel when they see the negative
comments in this paper, then you would keep
your opinions to yourself. The thumbs comments
affect their playing performance because they
are focusing on playing for their parents, not
on playing for the team. The boys are taught to
respect the game and their team as a whole, and
that includes the coaching staff. Hard to focus
when they hear their parents voice holler out
negative comments from the stands. The coaches
are teaching the boys the value of life, Stick
it out, give 100 %, play hard and you will get
rewarded, not, give it 50%, play when you want
to, and still get a prize at the end. Sometimes we
give 100% but it isnt recognized, then, at that
point you can walk away, but dont complain
about a coaching staff or their teammates if you
havent given it 100% on and off the feld.
Thumbs down to the women in Hudson that
makes tie dye shirts out of her house. I paid you
for the shirts, and you have not delivered. You
have one excuse after another. My kids keep
asking me when we are getting them. Enough is
enough. Give us our shirts! Big thumbs down to
you!
Thumbs down to St. Kathryns Parish for
refusing to baptize a baby because the parents
didnt regularly attend Mass.
Someone really should read the
New Testament wherein Jesus
Himself says: Suffer the little
children unto Me. Tell me, did
anyone consider that instead of
bringing an entire family back
to the church, you chased away
even more than just that one
family? I sure wouldnt want
to be in your seat when you
are judged (as you have judged
others!)
Thumbs down to all of
the football parents making
negative comments about the
coaching staff. They put in countless hours of
work to make sure that the players are in the right
spots and have the best opportunity to make plays.
Sincerely, an Alvirne senior football player who is
aware that it is the players fault when a game is
lost, not the coaches.
Thumbs down. I fnd it so disheartening that
such a wonderful organization as the Litchfeld
Lions Club has volunteers parking at Nightmare
New England/Spooky World that are so hateful.
Im sure many of your volunteers are great, but the
disgusting comments as well as terrible attitudes
directed at us are just not necessary. There are
other well deserving charities that beneft from our
parking money like Veterans, the Soup Kitchen
and Abused and Neglected Children. There is
plenty for everyone, so why the hate?

After a rough frst fve
weeks of the season that saw
the Cougars snail-pace their
way out to a 3-7 record, the
month of October has been
much kinder. Since their
month opening, 4-1 win
over Kearsarge Regional,
Campbell has celebrated
Octoberfest, winning four
of the last fve, and are
currently in the divisions
top 16. If the Cougars can
remain in the top 16, they
will receive a bye in the
preliminary or play-in
round game reserved for
teams that fnish in 17th to
20th place; which meets the
leave no team behind criteria
that identifes division III
boys soccer.
Aside from the four goals
surrendered in the only loss
incurred this month, the Cougars have tightened up their
defense, yielding only one goal in the four wins. Keeper
Jacob Morgan has benefted from fne defensive back play
as well as a rejuvenated offensive attack, in posting three
shutouts during that span; including identical 3-0 blankings
at home over Conant and Sanborn Regional. The most
recent goose egg recorded by the Cougar keep came in yet
another 3-0 home triumph over Somersworth on October
12.
The frst 40 minutes against the Hilltoppers was
painstakingly uneventful with only two quality scoring
chances coming the way of the
Cougars. With just 2:45 off the
clock, Jonathan Donagheys shot
from 23 yards out sailed just over
the outstretched hands of the
Somersworths keep; just missing
the crossbar. It wasnt until there
was less than 2:00 remaining
in the half when the Cougars
had their next legitimate chance
to take the lead when Andrew
Smarse kicked a grass-hugger that
slid just wide of the far left post.
Although they dominated the fow
of the game, Campbell found itself
in a scoreless
deadlock as
the two teams
entered half
time.
Nine minutes
into the second
half, Norway
got on the
board as CHS
exchange
student
Fredrick
Oestvold
scored,
providing the
Cougars with
the only goal
they would
need. After Ian
Hutchinson
created
a scoring
opportunity
for himself,
his defected
attempt
fortuitously found Oestvold, who drove his
shot inside the left post past the Hilltopper
keep for his sixth goal of the year. With 25:44
left in regulation, Morgan brought cheers from
the Campbell faithful with a diving save in the
crease, keeping his teams 1-0 lead intact.
Over the ensuing fve minutes of action,
Campbell nearly increased its lead on great
scoring opportunities from Donaghey and a
beautiful left to right cross from Tyler Guarino
to Hutchinson. Then in the 61st minute,
Campbell fnally recorded an insurance goal
when Ben Billings scored his seventh of the
2012 campaign, on an assist from Hutchinson.
The Cougars closed out the scoring with three
minutes remaining as Hutchinson hit the back
of the net for his team-leading 12th goal of the
year.
Earlier in the week, Campbell dropped a
4-2 decision to top 10 ranked Raymond. After
the host Rams jumped out to a 1-0 lead in
the games 14th minute, Campbell tied things
up in the 31st minute with a Ben Billings
goal (assisted by Oestvold). But Raymond
responded quickly, scoring in the next minute
to take a 2-1 lead into the half. Raymond increased its lead
to 3-1 with a goal half way through the
second half. Although Ian Hutchinson
scored on a penalty kick in the 64th
minute to bring Campbell within one
again, at 3-2, Raymond scored a late goal
(76th minute) to put the game away.
Campbell concludes its regular season
schedule when they host the same Rams
on Senior Day - Friday, October 19, at 4
p.m.

The lowly Panthers of Pittsfeld dragged their
dismal 2-12 record into the Cougar Den on
October 15 to face an undefeated Campbell
squad. After a slow start to game one which saw
Pittsfeld hanging close in the early stages, the
Cougars regrouped to post a 25-13 win. They
followed that up with 25-16 and 25-13 wins to
produce a three set blanking of the Panthers on
Senior Night 2012.
Prior to the game, Coach Colin Walker took
to the mic and acknowledged his four seniors;
Meaghan Dyer, Amanda Moreau, Jenelle Paledas
and Jayla Brennen as each player met her parents
courtside, enjoying the proverbial photo opp.
Soon after their 15 seconds of fame in front of the
Campbell crowd, the Lady Cougars went to work
on improving their record to a division-leading
14-0.
The Cougars put up a combined 35 kills against
an outmatched Pittsfeld squad with Brennen
leading the way with 17, while Brianna Hardy and
Alex Trevains each recorded eight. Defensively,
Hardy led the team with 15 digs with Brennen
chipping in with 11. Hardy added to her fne all-
around performance with 12 service points (two
aces). Elsewhere on the stat sheet, the Cougar
assist machine, Jenelle Psaledas, kept on rolling as
she racked-up 26 helpers on the night. Amanda
Moreau played well from behind the back line,
recording 12 service points in
her fnal regular season home
game.
Earlier in the week, the
Cougars posted a pair of wins
coming in the form of a three
games to none effort against
Mascenic as well as a lengthy
3-1 verdict over Hillsboro-
Deering. Against Mascenic,
Jenelle Psaledas (34 assists) and
Amanda Moreau (22 service
points, four aces) led the Cougar
attack.
On October 10, the Hillcats,
currently ranked 4th in division
III, and winners of eight straight
heading in to the matchup with
Campbell took the frst game, 25-18. However,
the Cougars fought back, taking the next three
tightly contested games by scores of 28-26, 25-19
and 26-24. Notable efforts for the Cougars in the
win were the following: Jayla Brennen 18 kills,
17 digs; Alex Trevains 11 Kills, two blocks, 10
service points; Jenelle Psaledas, with another huge
assist night,
had 36, and
Talia Hardy16
digs. Brianna
Hardy
recorded a
statistical
monster of
a game with
arguably
her best
performance
of the season;
16 Kills,
23 service
points, 10
aces, to go
along with a
jaw-dropping
34 Digs.

The battle for supremacy in Division VI football
took an interesting turn this past weekend. On
the heels of a record-breaking performance by
running back Jesiah Wade, the Cougars clawed
their way back into a tie for frst place in the
standings. Campbells 35-14 dismissal of Gilford
on Saturday, October 13, combined with a timely
Mascoma Valley 43-7 mauling of previously
undefeated Newfound Regional, fnds the Cougars
(6-1) sharing the divisions top spot with the Bears.
Campbell opened up the playbook against
Gilford as the play calling put a little air under
the ball this week with quarterbacks Christian
McKenna and Kyle Manning combining for
97 yards, as the aerial attack aided in gunning
down the Eagles. But it was Wades matinee
masterpiece that saw him enter the Campbell
record books which proved to be the ultimate
impetus. Wades 67-yard TD burst with 9:16 left
in the third quarter vaulted the Cougar RB past
the single season school record of 1,412 yards,
previously held by Jim Levesque. Wade fnished
the game with 276 yards rushing on 19 carries
while reaching the end zone fve times. As a
result of his quintuple touchdown performance,
Wade has an astounding 28 touchdowns on the
season to go along with 1,521 rushing yards.
The Wade TD parade began in the frst quarter
when he raced in from 29 yards out on a third and
three, giving Campbell a 7-0 lead. Surprisingly,
Gilford retaliated with an impressive, 6 minute,
75-yard touchdown drive to pull within one, after
the failed point after.
However, the quick strike
Cougar offense responded;
using only 1:04 on the
clock as Wade capped off
a three-play scoring drive
with a 21 yard run to pay
dirt and a 14-6 lead after
one quarter.
In the second quarter,
the Cougars put together
an effective, sustained
82-yard drive. A key
play on the drive was a
third down quarterback
keeper by McKenna which
saw the Campbell signal
caller pick up 12 yards
and the frst down. Two
plays later, Wade scored
his third touchdown of
the afternoon as he ran
to the left corner of the
end zone in front of the
Cougar scoreboard; as
the Campbell contingent
visualized the score
changing to 21-7, as the
two teams entered the
intermission.
After Gilford punted
the ball away on its frst
possession of the second
half, Campbell started
with a frst and 10 on their own 27. Less than
a minute later, Wade took the handoff from
QB McKenna and ran into the record books.
The Gilford players and coaching staff had
front row viewing as Wade ran off right tackle
and proceeded to outpace Gilfords Malcolm
Benevides down the right side line in front of
the visitors bench to the end zone for a 28-6
Campbell lead. Before the third quarter expired,
the Cougars increased their lead to 35-6 when
Wade, on a nice option-play-pitch from Max
Gouveia (who had assumed quarterback duties)
ran in from 49 yards out. The fnal frame saw an
infux of underclassmen and JV players getting
some playing time with the highlight play coming
when QB Manning threw a dart to sophomore
wide receiver Kyle Kopaczynski in the right fat
for a 49 yard gain, as the Cougars cruised to the
35-14 fnal.
Also getting their names on the stat sheet were
Trevor Duquette, Lee Nordyke, and Vinny Bucci
- each credited with sacks of Gilford quarterback
Jack Athanas. Adding to the Campbell defensive
effort was Connor Perry with an interception as
well as David Burke, Jordan Lang and Gouveia
recording four tackles each.
Campbell basically controls its own destiny
with respect to claiming the regular season title,
and the number one seed for the playoffs that
comes with it. With just two games remaining,
the Cougars hit the road for a crucial encounter
with 6-1 Mascoma Valley on October 20, before
fnishing up their schedule under the Litchfeld
Friday Night Lights, when they host Newfound
Regional on Senior Night, October 26.
