HMS Teacher Gets Special Recognition

by Len Lathrop
Being New Hampshires Special Educator
of the Year, Kyla Roche, was surprised Friday
morning with a celebration that will lead to
receiving an EDDY award this spring. Hudson
Memorial School gymnasium was full as the
entire student population, her family, many
of her students parents and the honored
dignitaries for the Council for Exceptional
Children were there for this presentation.
Fridays citation was In recognition of
outstanding contributions to the academic
achievements and personal growth to special
education students.
Since 1922, the Council for Exceptional
Children has been a national organization
advocating for children who are gifted and/
or talented, or who have disabilities. Based in
the Washington, D.C., area since its inception,
CEC is a strong advocate for parents, teachers
and administrators of special education as well.
Familiar with legislation at the national level,
CEC makes frequent contact with decision
makers and elected representatives in the
House and Senate, representing the interest of
parents and professionals in the field.

Stacey Milbouer, representing the Hudson
School Board, greeted everyone with a Hidee,
Hidee Ho for special education in Hudson and
then went on to state how proud the district was
with all the accomplishments of Mrs. Roche
and the students.
Hudson Director of Special Education Jeanne
Saunders mentioned she had worked with Kyla
for three years and has been impressed with the
relationships she develops with the students,
parents and administrators. The kids make
tremendous progress with her. Kyla has a way
with our students and families, Saunders said.
By the time they leave, theyre ready for ninth
grade at Alvirne.
Saunders also pointed out that Roche works
with staff for crisis management training. She
(Roche) de-escalates crisis situations and helps
train staff across the district in that capacity.
Memorial School Principal Keith Bowen said
this of Roche: (She) is absolutely the most
amazing teacher, one that any parent would
love to have their child with, Bowen said.
Shes caring, kind, supportive and knows
how to develop relationships.
Bowen continued, Shes an outstanding asset
to the community of Hudson.

Master Patrolman Cassandra Avery, a member of
the Hudson police force since 2005, just recently
graduated from the D.A.R.E. academy, which took
place somewhat ironically at the fire academy
in Concord. The 10-day Drug Abuse Resistance
Education program entails one of the most
intensive training courses an officer can undergo.
From 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. these individuals
learn such skills as quick thinking, extreme
preparation, confidence, public speaking, all on
top of the increasingly dense and rapidly changing
curriculum. When these officers graduate from
the program,
they not
only know
the D.A.R.E.
America course
material inside
and out but
are as sensitive
toward the
children and
their questions
as a teacher
who has honed
the craft over
many years.
Lets face it,
children can
unknowingly,
at times, be
blunt with
their thoughts
and remarks.

Hudson DARE Prepares Officers to Combat Youth Drug Use

Master Patrolman Cassandra Avery


Its tough sometimes because kids are going to
D.A.R.E America and the training committee
have a lot of questions, and you dont want them
are not only taught by officers but also people
to discuss personal experiences that may make
who have long been involved in the public school
other people uncomfortable, or may bring light to
systems. This aspect gives a unique dynamic to
a private matter, said Avery, so you just kind of
the extremely well rounded program, which has to
say, oh thats a great question, but, hey, maybe we
keep up with todays fast-paced culture as it grows
should meet after class to discuss it.
to address problems as they emerge around the

country.
D.A.R.E America was founded in 1983 by the
Los Angeles police chief, along with the unified
school district, in response to the harsh reality
that drugs were most prevalent in the youth of
L.A. Since its founding, the program has received
some criticism. Yet, as Captain Tousignant of the
Hudson Police Department explained, How do
you measure prevention? You dont know how
many kids have been detoured from turning to
drugs or experimenting with drugs. How do you
measure how many burglaries an officer stopped
by driving through a neighborhood?
The program, although created to help prevent
drug use in minors, covers a broad spectrum
of issues young people may face as they grow
through adolescence: suicide, peer pressure,
bullying, decision making, communication,
responding to pressure and, most importantly,
when to ask for help. Every 10 years the program
is reassessed and revamped to accommodate the
changing times.
Avery mentioned that in the 80s and 90s
social media hadnt existed. Up until AOL instant
messenger became a trend among youngsters,
there was no such thing as cyber bullying.
However, nowadays, the biggest problem in
the Hudson school system, as far as Captain
Tousignant is concerned, is just that. With the
great advancements in technology, adolescents
not only have the vast and somewhat harmful
world of the internet at their finger tips but also
thousands of different applications that easily can
be abused and used in a malicious manner by
children.

New Squad Truck to be Placed in Service

AgentKey#04960372OneStopShop

submitted by David S. Morin, HFD


Public Information Liaison
This week the Hudson Fire Department took
delivery of its first squad vehicle. This vehicle
was built on a Ford 500 chassis by the Alexis Fire
Apparatus Corporation in Alexis, Ill. The purchase
of this vehicle was approved by the voters during
the 2014 fiscal year budget for a total cost of
$178,000; alternatively the cost of a new pumper
would have been approximately $400,000.
The purchase and operating cost for the life of
the squad is estimated to save a total of $218,000
from the cost of operating a conventional fire
response vehicle. Maintenance cost will also be
much lower as an oil change for the squad vehicle
is in the $200 range whereas an oil change for a
conventional fire response vehicle is $727.
The body of the vehicle will be placed on a
new chassis every three years with the body itself
replaced every five years saving a considerable
amount of funds in apparatus replacement costs.
Squad 1 will be a very versatile vehicle and

serve many purposes all the while saving taxpayers


money. This truck will allow quicker response
times and cut down on the wear on the larger
engine companies by keeping those engines
available for larger scale calls. The squad will also
respond town wide on motor vehicle accident and
certain medical responses as the department rescue
vehicle.
Equipped with a water tank and pump, the truck
will respond to motor vehicle fires, brush fires
and dumpster fires. The squad is also outfitted to
respond to hazardous material incidents, technical
rescues, service calls and community event
standby.
With an expected in-service date of Feb. 1,
firefighters have been working hard to place
equipment on the truck and have it ready to
respond to the residents calls for service.
Squad 1 will be on display at the Town
Deliberative Session on Jan. 31. Town residents are
encouraged to have a look at the new truck and ask
the firefighters any questions they may have.

Remember Hudson when ...


The First Baptist Church at Hudson Center
submitted by Ruth Parker
The First Baptist Church of Hudson was organized in 1805 at the home of Thomas Senter on what is now the Old Derry Road near
the Londonderry line. For the first 37 years, services were held in members homes or at the North Meeting House located just east of
the Town House. The sanctuary of this church at the corner of Central and Greeley Streets was constructed in 1842. In 1888, a short
alcove was added to house the new organ; then, in 1897 the large vestry was added.
This photo was probably taken at the time of the centennial celebration of the church in 1905. Over these years, the exterior of
the building has not changed significantly except for replacing the original steeple, which was completed in 2007. To the left of
the church is part of the Greeley/Wentworth home, now the church parsonage. The stacks of wood seen here were used to heat the
building. The dirt roadway in front of the church is either Central Street or a short cut from Central Street to Greeley Street. Photo
from the collection of the Hudson Historical Society.

Appreciation for Contribution to an Annual Tradition


On behalf of the Hudson Fish & Game Club and our volunteers, thank you for your contribution of
time and the wonderful follow-up stories to our annual 2014 Thanksgiving Dinner. This year was a huge
success due to the donations we received as well as the hundreds of volunteers who prepared and delivered
almost 1,200 hot, delicious homemade meals which were individually delivered to elderly, homebound,
needy, or simply those celebrating the holiday in isolation. Deliveries were made within the community of
Hudson, as well as surrounding communities of Nashua, Derry, Pelham, Merrimack, Litchfield, Milford
and Tyngsborough, Massachusetts. Additionally, approximately 150 guests came to our facility to eat in the
company of friends.
After 24 years, our tradition continues to grow. We rely entirely on charitable donations and volunteers,
your contribution of their time and services to bring the holiday joy to the home of those who are isolated
and alone. Without your support, many would have gone without a hot meal to celebrate the Thanksgiving
Day tradition. With your help, our volunteers bring warmth to their holidays. Your contribution is greatly
appreciated.
On behalf of the members of the Hudson Fish & Game Club, the Knox family, and volunteers, we thank
you and look forward to next year.
Hudson Fish & Game Club Members and Volunteers, Hudson

Urging NH to Oppose Proposed Pipeline


We respond to the article appearing in the Jan. 23 issue of the HLN regarding the proposed Kinder
Morgan high-pressure 36-inch diameter gas pipeline that is to run through Hudson and surrounding
communities.
The proposed route will take at least a 125-foot wide easement that is in addition to the current PSNH
easement over both private and public land. The present PSNH easement does not grant the installation
of any gas line and the actual gas line will need to be placed outside the current power line easement,
thus taking land and removing everything (except grass and weeds) in its path. Although a portion of the
proposed easement supposedly will overlap the current PSNH easement, ultimately there will be at least an
additional 50 feet added to the width of the existing PSNH easement that cannot have anything on it that
may disturb the pipeline. With nearly 2.5 miles of pipeline proposed to go through Hudson, over 15 acres of
land will be permanently lost to this project, and that land will never be able to have any trees, buildings or
other improvements.
Property owners that are in the path of the pipeline have the constitutional right to object to this taking
by a private for-profit corporation. In order for the pipeline to go through Hudson, if landowners object,
Kinder Morgan can seek to have the property taken by eminent domain. In addition, conservation land, set
aside for the public, will be taken according to this plan.
The pipeline will harm property owners beyond those in the easements path. Homeowners are
legitimately concerned that if they reside near the pipeline, they will face higher homeowners insurance
premiums because of the risks of having a high-pressure gas pipeline in the neighborhood, which could leak
or cause an explosion. Homes in the pipelines path will lose value and this could result in a lower propertytax assessment for those owners. These taxes will need to be paid by other Hudson residents. Wells may be
damaged by the blasting that will occur when installing the line or contaminated later by gas leaks. After
becoming operational, there will be an additional risk of fire, explosion or spill of toxic substances in the
event the pipeline ruptures. Hudson will be forced to prepare for such an event, which likely will include
purchasing additional fire and safety equipment to deal with such a disaster. This too will raise property
taxes. The owner of the pipeline has admitted that:
From time to time, despite our best efforts, our pipelines experience leaks and ruptures. These leaks and
ruptures may cause explosions, fire, and damage to the environment, damage to property and/or personal
injury or death.
The proposed route is not the route originally planned by Kinder Morgan. The original route was to go
through communities in northern Massachusetts. However, these communities voiced strong opposition
to the project because of safety and environmental concerns. The gas is to be delivered to Massachusetts yet
Massachusetts citizens do not want the burden of the pipeline, apparently only the benefit. It is unfair to
burden New Hampshire residents when Massachusetts residents will reap most of the benefits.
We oppose this proposed pipeline and urge all New Hampshire residents to do the same.

This week it is just questions - most without answers; just


things to think about. Maybe ask those wanting to run for
office what they think, and how they would vote.

Why are there no fire hydrants on Tolles Street? Next, lets ask the candidates, do you know where
Tolles Street is and what goes there?
Why did the selectmen not plan more services for Hudson Seniors? With the center very busy and
the number of seniors who have senior cards over 500, why doesnt Lori Bowen have a full-time job? Is
being under the Recreation Departments budget and administration hurting the senior operations?
Alvirnes price for a track and a synthetic field is on the ballot for $1,887,721. Windham School
Districts price is $1,820,000 for constructing and equipping a multi-purpose athletic synthetic turf field,
lighting and seating at Windham High School. Should more research be done in Hudson?
That law, RSA 275:43-a, provides: On any day an employee reports to work at an employers request,
he shall be paid not less than 2 hours pay at his regular rate of pay; provided, however, that this section
shall not apply to employers of counties or municipalities. Why are counties and municipalities handled
differently?

Crew Adviser David Franklin held the first meeting of the
New Litchfield Venturer Crew 11 last night at the Litchfield
Community Church (the crews charter organization).
Several boys were present at the beginning of the meeting
and several more arrived late, but all listened intently as
Adviser Franklin started with a video presentation and
regaled them with his thoughts on what a Venturer Crew can
be.
His vision for potential exciting activities included
everything from rock wall climbing to job interview prep,
from college campus tours to a train tour across country,
from learning what internships are being offered locally
to learning proper dress and etiquette at a black tie event
or country club cotillion. Franklin said that the heart of
many activities will feature S.T.E.M. (science, technology,
engineering and math). He also emphasized that the
Ventured Crew may be small right now, but he hopes he
will be able to interest many more college and high school
students, both males and females aged 14 to 20, as long as
they have finished 8th grade and not yet reached their 21st
birthday.

The Tax Return - The Affordable


Care Act - Part 1

W.F.Boutin EA - Total Tax Solutions LLC

To begin this discussion of the tax law changes that went into effect in
2014, lets start with a definition of terms:
Minimum Essential Coverage (MEC) - This is an insurance coverage
under a government sponsored program, an eligible employer
sponsored plan, a plan in the individual market, a grandfathered health
plan or other coverage recognized by the Dept of Health and Human
Services. Also known as qualifying health care coverage.
Shared Responsibility Payment (SRP) - If the taxpayer or any member
of the tax household, did not have either MEC or an exemption for any
month during the tax year, a taxpayer must compute a shared responsibility payment on the income tax return.
Tax Household - the tax household includes the taxpayer, taxpayer's
spouse if filing a joint return, ANY individual claimed as a DEPENDENT on the return as well as EACH person the taxpayer can, but does
not claim as a dependent.
Marketplace (aka The Exchange, Health Insurance Marketplace) - A
government or nonprofit entity that offers qualified health plans to
individuals.
Health Coverage Exemptions- A recognized reason for not having
MEC during any month of the tax year. Examples are unaffordable
coverage, short coverage gap, household income below filing threshold.
Premium Tax Credit - A new tax credit for certain people who
enrolled in a qualified health plan offered through the Marketplace.
A taxpayer MUST NOT be eligible for other minimum essential
coverage, as through an employer to qualify.
Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the federal and state governments, insurers, employers and individuals share responsibility for
improving health insurance coverage in the US. The ACA created the
"Marketplace" where taxpayers find information about insurance
options, purchase qualified health plans and when eligible acquire help
paying premiums and out of pocket expenses utilizing the new
premium tax credit. The ACA also created the individual shared
responsibility provision, which requires individuals to have minimum
essential coverage for each month of the year, or qualify for a coverage
exemption, or make a shared responsibility payment when filing their
income tax return. Most taxpayers will have had this MEC prior to
year's start and only had to maintain it for the whole year. If coverage
was maintained, then these taxpayers will simply have to check a box
indicating this fact on the tax form, no further action is required. ( Next
year taxpayers will receive either a 1095-B or 1095-C form indicating
coverage information.) Taxpayers who did not maintain coverage, may
be exempt from the SRP and will not have to make a payment with the
return. Coverage exemptions are available for individuals who are
specifically described as having a religious, economic, or other
justification for not having the MEC. These taxpayers who qualify for an
exemption will be required to file the new Form 8965, Health Coverage
Exemptions with their tax returns in 2014. Needless to say, if a taxpayer
or any dependent on the return did not maintain MEC for each month
of the tax year and did not qualify for a coverage exemption, must
calculate a payment and add it to their tax liability on the tax return.
As you can see, in terms of simplifying the tax code, we have added
another layer of calculations to complete the yearly return. As stated,
for most individuals who have family plans through their employer or
seniors with Medicare Part A or Medicare Advantage, there is little to be
concerned, a simple box must be checked. Next year you will probably
receive a reporting form in the 1095 series to verify your MEC. It is for
individuals, who purchased through the Marketplace and qualify for the
new premium tax credit or for individuals that did not maintain MEC
and must calculate a payment where confusion will abound.
In the next article, I will continue to delve into the quagmire, however
since their are limitations to the size of these articles, I will be attempting to add a web page at our website so that many of the charts and
formulas required to complete some of these tasks can be displayed.

Partition Fire Damages Hudson Home


submitted by David S. Morin, HFD Public Information Liaison
Hudson firefighters were alerted to a building fire at 22
Kienia Road at 12:57 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 24. Hudson
Fire Alarm received a 9-1-1 call from the homes occupant
reporting the fire. Fire Chief Rob Buxton, the first arriving fire
officer, found light smoke showing from around the chimney
of the single-family home.
As fire crews found fire burning in the partitions behind the
first-floor fireplace that had burned through the exterior wall.
Crews using sawzalls, axes and other tools had to cut out the
exterior wall and dismantle the brickwork of the fireplace
to get at the fire. They also had to remove the sheet rock
in a room on the second floor of the home to check for fire
spreading up into the wall space. This was very labor intensive
and time-consuming operation. It took firefighters two hours
to bring the fire under control.
The departments Fire Prevention and Inspectional
Services Divisions were requested to the scene
to investigate for a cause of the fire and handle
structurally related concerns. The fire remains under
investigation.
A total of 11 Hudson firefighters, officers and
chief officers staffing three engines, two command
vehicles, an engine and ladder company from
Nashua, an engine from Londonderry, and a Pelham
tanker operated at the scene. Mutual aid from

system in which they are notified immediately when an EMS call
has begun, before all the dispatch protocols are complete. The
fire department personnel are alerted that there has been a call, so
that they can prepare to leave before all of the information is even
received. They will also be notified as soon as possible whether
the call is a medial call or a fire-related call, so that they will know
which vehicles to take. They are then able to leave the station
with partial information and can gather more details while they
are already on their way to the address that was given. This new
procedure has already shaved approximately 1.5 minutes off of
response times.

Attempting to put out a fire that has enveloped everything around it


While its great that this new procedure has worked so well, it has
obviously not been enough to reach the goal of four-minute response
times. This is why it is still important to consider the relocation of
the Burns Hill Station to be within 2.5 miles of 90 percent of the
town of Hudson. Another perk to this move would be that some
members of the town may even find their insurance rates going
down with a fire station moving closer to their homes. All of this
should be considered when voting in the elections this March. You
can continue to stay tuned in the coming weeks for even more
information on this from the HLN.

Cookies 2015 - Gil is back!

After a long, unplanned challenge, I am back with a bag of new offerings for 2015.

Monday - Friday 5:30 A.M. - 7:30 A.M.

Grab-N-Go Lunch

Any Size Coffee89 Cents each + TAX

Available 7 Days Per Week

It has been almost two years since I was actively engaged in the
day-to-day operations of Cookies and I have missed it. I need to
thank everyone who has stepped up to the plate and carried on for
me. I also want to thank all the wonderful customers who have
stood by us during this challenging time.
As we start off this New Year we also return to the days we all
remember so well. All the generous hot portions
of freshly prepared meals served up with a healthy
portion of friendly service and bottomless coffee.
But, the world is changing and Cookies will be
changing with it.
First, our version of the Internet Caf. Weekdays,
when work is the first order of business, a select
number of tables in a quiet atmosphere will be set
aside with free internet access for those who need
a place on the road to stop and meet with business
acquaintances or just get some work done. Coffee
and other beverages will be available along with
continental breakfast foods. Of course the full
breakfast menu will always be available.
Next, is for our early morning commuters. A selection of GrabN-Go breakfast items will be available from 6:30 a.m. They will be
inexpensive, tasty, and ready to eat on your way to work.
Details will be posted on our Facebook page, Cookies Chuck
Wagon.

We Cater Breakfast and Special Occasions

We will continue to bake our fresh bread each morning, but


starting in January 2015 fresh-baked White, Wheat and Raisin Bread
will be available by the loaf after 9 a.m. And dont forget, the raisin
bread includes a portion of our Cinnamon Butter.
Available Monday through Friday and served from11:30 a.m. is a
select lunch menu. And check out the Grab-N-Go Lunch program
where you can pre-order up to a weeks worth of
lunches, that includes both your beverage and
dessert, for pick up first thing in the morning on
the way to work, school or wherever you are off
to, so you never need to make a lunch again. Also
great for shut-ins and anyone who is forced to eat
out the Grab-N-Go saves you money and adds the
convenience of having your lunch with you and
not waiting in line at some fast food place.
Stop in for details; you wont be disappointed.
Also in January, I will be developing our On-Line
capabilities. You will be able to order anything
from our breakfast or lunch menu along with the
Grab-N-Go menu right from your computer or smart phone.
Finally, in January I will be introducing Cookies Coins in addition
to the 5% Rewards Program. Talk about saving! Check this out.
The coins are on order and the program will begin as soon as they
are delivered. Its fun and its Free!

Seriously Injured Driver Extricated with Jaws of Life


submitted by Hudson Police Department
On Jan. 25, at about 4:45 p.m., members of the
Hudson Police and Fire departments responded to the
area of 300 Derry Street for the report of a car colliding
with a utility pole with the driver trapped inside the car.
Fire and EMT personnel quickly arrived on scene, and,
within approximately 15 minutes, extricated the driver
using the Jaws of Life.
Hudson Police identified the driver as Darwin
Zimmerman, 50, of Hudson. An on-scene investigation
determined that Zimmerman was traveling south on
Derry Street when he careened off the roadway and
struck the utility pole along the southbound lane of Derry
Street at the entrance of Primary Care of Hudson at 300
Derry Street.
Zimmerman was the only occupant in the car; he
was not wearing his seatbelt and there was airbag
deployment. Zimmerman was transported to the
Southern New Hampshire Medical Center and then
airlifted to Massachusetts General Hospital to be treated for serious
injuries.

asked Why does our town
have a separate Sewer and
Water operating budget
in addition to the General
Fund operating Budget?
The General Fund operating
budget is funded by your
taxes. The sewer operating
budget is funded by money
collected from the sewer
bills and the water operating
budget is funded by money
collected from the water
bills. No tax money is used
to support either the sewer
or water operating budget.
If anyone is interested in
learning more about the
water and sewer operations
in Hudson, the Municipal
Utility Committee currently
has two vacancies. The
Committee acts in an
advisory capacity to the
Board of Selectmen on
issues related to the Water
and Sewer Utilities and
meets the third Wednesday
of each month at 5 p.m. in
Town Hall.

Thank you.
Thumbs up to the young lady in Litchfield
Landing that shoveled a path from the road to
my door and cleaned off my steps. I am unable
to shovel so I am very grateful. So was my poor
little dog, who tried to go out but the snow was
over her head. Thank you so much for your kind
deed.
Thumbs up to all those hearty folks that help
others in the snowy filled days and to those who
hate it then leave because the past will revisit
and the ugly will get you ... Snow and winter go
together in New Hampshire.
Thumbs up to Veria Pizza for opening during

Thumbs down. Hudson voters, the candy
store is open again. Come this March we again
have the unique opportunity to give all the candy
away. Are we going to vote for a new athletic
field at a cost of 1.88 million? Along with the
school budget raises, at over a million dollars and
change. The town operating expenses are up; the
new fire station is coming in at over 10 million.
Can you see where this is going? What about
Hudson paying 80 percent medical for all their
employees in the town - plus free dental! Have
you ever seen such expenses and our taxes are
going to continue to go up? Come March, vote
no and save some pieces of candy for yourself and
your family.

the effort another hydraulic fluid

(NAPS)There are a few things you need to do to keep yourself


and your precious cargokids, friends, petssafe on snow, ice,
slush, black ice and wet roads. Safety on the road is important all
year-round, but winter weather calls for extra caution behind the
wheel. Thats why many auto safety experts urge motorists to keep
road safety at the top of their checklists this winter and switch to tires
specifically designed for cold weather driving.
Every aspect of a winter tire has been engineered to provide the
best performance in winter conditions and temperature fluctuations
while maintaining traction on any surface, said Mark Marrufo of
Discount Tire. Keeping your family safe in every aspect of life is your
priority. It is our priority to keep you, your family and your passengers
safe while on the road.
At 45 degrees, vehicles often lose their ability to brake and turn
well because of the rubber compound found in all-season tires. That
compound begins to gradually harden when temps dip below 45
degrees, meaning decreased road traction and
less grip. Whats more, snow and ice often pile up
in the tire grooves on all-season tires.
Winter tires, on the other hand, are made
with higher-silica compounds. This allows
the tire to deliver much better traction, which
reduces skidding and improves braking. In fact,
in temperatures below 45 degrees, winter tires
can provide 25 to 50 percent more traction than
all-season tires. Two new tires for this winter that
use this technology are the Bridgestone WS80 and
Michelin X-Ice Xi3. In addition, specialized tread
design, which includes thousands of very small
slitscalled sipesprovides extra road-biting
edges for improved winter traction.

Five Tips For Winter Road Safety:


1. Replace your all-season tires with winter tires for driving in
temperatures of 45 degrees or below. Make sure to replace all four
tires to avoid an unsafe traction mismatch.
2. Dont forget the wheels when switching to winter tires. Having
a set of wheels specifically for your set of winter tires will save money
in the long run.
3. Check tire pressure regularly and dont forget the spare.
Underinflated or overinflated tires may result in poor handling,
uneven tread wear and poor fuel consumption.
4. Rotate your tires at least every 5,000 miles or earlier if irregular
or uneven wear develops.
5. Make sure the tire shop that gets your tires ready for cold
temperatures properly torques the lug nuts to the specifications for
your vehicle.
If youre not sure if you need winter tires, you can get a free safety
inspection at any Discount Tire location. For more facts about winter
tire safety or to find a Discount Tire store, visit www.discounttire.com.

Strong Run Ends
at Mascenic
by Jacob Gagnon
During the span of a six-game winning
streak that began back in 2014 on Dec. 19, the
Campbell High School boys Basketball team
launched themselves into the top tier of Division
III.
That impressive run came to end on Friday
evening, Jan. 23 on the road against Mascenic
High School. The aggressive Mascenic squad
snagged an early first-quarter lead that they would
maintain throughout the contest. At the half, the
Cougars trailed, 36-27.
Campbell played better ball in the second half.
The Cougars were able to hack away at the home
teams lead, even narrowing the gap to just two
points. In the end, it was too little, too late, as the
home team held on to halt Campbells win streak
and earn the win, 60-56.
Both Zach Bergeron and Harrison Vedrani led
the Cougars on offense with 16 points apiece.
Andrew Smarse scored 11 points in the game.
Kyle Shaw contributed on offense with six points.
Campbell collected 37 rebounds as a team in the
contest.
The Cougars returned to the court with the
goal of returning to the winning track at Sanborn
Regional High School on Wednesday, Jan. 28.
Another hot streak would ensure a top spot in the
postseason tournament for the Cougars.

HFGCs Elizabeth Dutton to Represent
State at National Junior Olympics

submitted by Bill Dutton


Twas the Saturday before Christmas and across the line, not a
shooter was stirring in hopes of a ten-point nine. Saturday, Dec. 20,
was one of the two most important matches of the season for New
Hampshire junior shooters: The air rifle portion of the USA Shooting
State Junior Olympics, which serves as the tryout for the National
Junior Olympic Shooting Championships.

The morning began with six of the seven young women shooting
on the first relay, followed by six of the 10 young men on the next,
and a final relay with the remaining five competitors. In first place
for women was Elizabeth Dutton, of the Hudson Fish and Game
Club Junior Rifle Team, earning the womens state representative
invitation to the National Junior Olympics as the gold medalist and
just three points shy of the MQS for her age group with a 382. The
silver medal went to Bailey Urbach, also of the HFGJRT, who shot a
370. In third place was the bronze medal recipient Grace Hackler,
of the Ferrybrook Junior Shooters (FBJS) with a score of 361.
For the men, the gold medal went to Andrew Solomonides, also
of the FBJS, whose impressive score earned him the mens state
representative invitation and was also just three points shy of his
MQS at 577. Tobin Sanctuary, of the FBJS, took home the silver
medal for his score of 559, while his teammate Hunter Lang took
home the bronze for his score of 552. Awards were also presented
to the high-scoring J3 (14 and under) shooter in each event, with

the recipients being Olivia Beteau for women with a 314 and Joey
Wilson for men with a 520; both shooters are FBJS members.
Elizabeth Dutton and Andrew Solomonides will represent New
Hampshire at the National Junior Olympic Shooting Championships,
which take place at the Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center in
April 2015, for having earned the state champion gold medals. The
other competitors await the announcement of invitations in the early
spring to see if they made the cut for a second-round invitation.
These invitations are awarded after the state representative and MQS
automatic invitations to shooters who did not shoot their MQS, but
were the next closest scorers in the nation in order to fill the range to
capacity.

Tobin and Andy


The only ways to qualify are to earn the mens or womens state
champion gold medal or to shoot an MQS, or minimum qualifying
score. The qualifying score varies for each shooter, as men and
women shoot 60 shots and 40 shots for score, respectively, and each
age category has a different score. This years qualifying scores were
as follows: men, age 18-20, 580/600; men, age 15-17, 575/600;
men, age 14 and under, 560/600; women, age 18-20, 390/400;
women, age 15-17, 385/400; and women, age 14 and under,
370/400.

Alvirne-Pelham Avs Hockey Digs Deep but Loses Close One


The snowstorm on Saturday, Jan. 24 postponed the Alvirne-Pelham Avalanche game, so they played an
early game on Monday, Jan. 26 at 3 p.m. in Hooksett at the Ice Den. The Avs, who are riding a six-game
losing streak since winning the season opener, really needed something to build on to get them going in
the second half of the season and they seem to have gotten that.
Although they lost a close game 2-1 vs. a strong Pinkerton team, the play of junior goalie Curtis Richall
stood out; he made 39 saves in the loss, many of which were outstanding. Pinkerton was all over the Avs
from the drop of the puck, outshooting Alvirne-Pelham 19-4 in the first while taking a 1-0 lead.
The Avs played much better in the second period, holding Pinkerton to eight shots, while generating

only five of their own. Brendan Parent tied the game at one when he trailed Cam Richall into Pinkertons
zone, and Richall dropped a pass back that the goalie never saw. Parent fired the puck home. Brad Brock
also had an assist on the goal. Pinkerton retook the lead shortly after when the Avs couldnt get a handle
on the puck to clear it. Pinkerton came out from behind the net three times before one shot deflected off
an Avs defenseman and beat Richall.
The third period was a pretty close period as well, with Pinkerton outshooting the Avalanche 14-10.
Both teams had many good scoring chances, but neither was able to add to the score.
The Avs played a game on Wednesday, Jan. 28 at Pembroke-Campbell. Next, they face Bishop Guertin
on Saturday, Jan. 31, 3:30 p.m. at Skate 3 in Tyngsboro (considered a BG home game).
