Hudson Firefighter Jim Bravaro


Firefighters in Litchfield were called to

a home on Martin Lane just before 9 a.m.
on Monday morning, Feb. 23 for a report
of smoke in the building. Upon arrival,
firefighters encountered heavy smoke
conditions. They attempted to attack the
fire from inside the home, but conditions
quickly became too dangerous, and
firefighters were forced out of the building
into defensive operations. There were no
reported injuries in the three-alarm fire.
The home collapsed during the fire and
has been deemed a total loss. A Facebook
page with the name Kasprzak Relief Org
has been set up to accept donations to
help the family.

Cool Runnings Sled Race Brings Family Fun to the Slopes

by AJ Dickinson
Superheroes and snowmen were on hand
for this one. On Saturday, Feb. 21, many
gathered at Benson Park on what turned out to
be a beautiful winter day for the annual Cool
Runnings Cardboard Sled Race. This familyfriendly fundraiser began as a way to raise
money for the recently built amphitheater that
was constructed as a memorial for 13-yearold Mallory Lynn Gray who, in 2009, passed
away due to complications of systemic juvenile
rheumatoid arthritis and leukemia.
Now, six years and one amphitheater later,
Hudson locals anticipate the fundraiser all
winter long. More than 30 sleds competed in
three categories: best theme, most creative
and, of course, speed. Sled designs ranged
from snowmen and princess carriages to
Batman and bananas. Not only was the event
fun to both watch and participate in but was
also a way for a lot of families to get together
away from the television and spend some
quality time working on their homemade
cardboard sleds.

Litchfield will be able to Cast Votes

on the 10th of March
by Len Lathrop
Have you thought about what Litchfield School
District Clerk Jason Guerrette tried to do over the
last two months? Maybe it is over. He signed the
ballot and all might be well in Litchfield. But was
the question ever answered: Is the default budget
correct and who decides? The school board who
gets their numbers from the business manager?
Judge David Garfunkel, in Hillsborough County
Superior Court South, made the matter very simple
last Wednesday when he issued a with a petition
for a writ of mandamus to sign or resign, and that
set up the emergency hearing on Thursday.
Guerrette continues to state that all he was
asking for was an explanation of the calculations
that were used by the school district for the
default budget; he explained via many phone
conversations that he felt he was defending his
oath of office and doing the job to the best of his
The Litchfield School District Attorney Gordon
Graham defined the school district clerks role as
ministerial duty to prepare and sign the official
ballot whether he felt it was right or wrong.
Judge Garfunkel agreed.
The ballot was signed. The 24th was the last
day for absentee ballots to be sent. The school

district had three and a half working days to do

that, while they were not mailed together with the
Town of Litchfield ballots. Meanwhile, back to
the question. On March 10 only the voters can
decide; if you can call it a decision. The operating
budget proposed is $21,031,613 while the default
is $21,074,749. If a voter says no, then the
school district gets more revenue than is being
budgeted for. If the voters agree and affirm the
warrant article, are they saying everything is grand
with the budget or are they just looking to save a
few dollars? Also, why is the operating budget not
recommended by the school board, which makes
the decision at the polls even harder?
One last question to think about, the clerk is
an elected official so if he had to pay court costs
would the school district be required to pay?
So many questions and so little time. The one
fact that continues to shine is that no one other
than the calculators of the default budget review
it. That is one thing that needs to be fixed. It is
a state-level issue. Local voters might be able
to offer a resolution at next years elections to
force the default to be voted on by the budget
committee, but then again until it is an RSA
(Revised Statutes Annotated), so most elected
officials would say it was only advisory.

Hudson PD Promotes One Officer,

Recognizes Others for Exemplary Work

by Mike Falzone
Litchfield Town Administrator Jason Hoch updated the Litchfield
selectmen last week on his dealings with Kinder Morgan/Tennessee
Gas Pipeline Company, LLC
Several representatives from area towns met with Kinder Morgan to
get updates on the ongoing proposed 71-mile pipeline across southern
New Hampshire. The pipeline dissects Litchfield along the current
power lines, and then crosses the northern portion of Hudson, as
it makes its way through Pelham to a distribution station in Dracut,
Kinder Morgan has been less than responsive to a number of towns
in the area, and its not for a lack of trying, explained Hoch. We
have had both pleasant and hostile communications with community
relations people at the company, and it seems than all the towns are
having the same issue.
Kinder Morgan held an open house Thursday at White Birch
Function Hall in Hudson, which was attended by several Hudson and
Litchfield residents. Attendees were outnumbered by Kinder Morgan
representatives, so all residents with questions could be heard, or led
to someone with expertise on the questions subject matter.
When the HLN approached Lucas Meyer, a Kinder Morgan
Community Relations member, and explained to him the feelings
Mr. Hoch had detailed, he quickly described what a wonderful
relationship Kinder Morgan had with Hoch and all the surrounding
I will admit with all the snow, its been frustrating trying to find
dates for meetings after we had to reschedule, but we have a good
relationship with the towns.
Selectman Frank Byron said if Kinder Morgan isnt listening to town
managers, selectman, or administrators, maybe it was time to escalate
and get the state reps involved.
Hoch described how the towns talked about sharing resources from
Nashua Regional Planning, legal help, or the states congressional
Some towns have planned to add legal costs into their budgets
at town meetings this year, explained Hoch. We will continue to
gather information and work with surrounding towns and government
agencies to avoid duplication efforts.
Litchfield has added a pipeline page to its town website.

officers for performing CPR or other life-saving measures to attempt to save
a persons life, thus demonstrating (their) dedication to preserve life.
The Chiefs Achievement Award is awarded to employees for highly

Remember Hudson When ...

Hudson Center Common from Elis Front Door 1888
submitted by Ruth Parker
This weeks photo is the Hudson Center Common as seen by Eli
Hamblet in 1888.
This c. 1888 photo of the Hudson Center Common shows the view
from the home of Eli Hamblet on Hamblet Avenue. Straight ahead is the
Baptist Church, the church where he was elected as deacon just a few
years earlier in 1882. The large vestry had not been built, but the need
for it had most likely been discussed among the members. To the right
of the church is the home of Mrs. Mahalia Greeley, the widow of John
Greeley, M.D. To the left of the church is the home of Daniel Greeley.
Daniel was known to have a good nature and was well liked within the
In the foreground and on the left of the photo is the Old Hudson
Center Cemetery.
Up until a few years prior to this photo, the cemetery was in disrepair
and the town was considering moving the remains from this site, so
that the size of the common could be increased. This proposal did not
meet with public sentiment and, as it turned out, a former resident of
Hudson, John Foster, made a proposal to the town that he would build
a stone fence and clean up the cemetery if the town would maintain it.
Immediately beyond the cemetery is a roof of a barn, possibly from the
barn connected to the Henry Brown House on the opposite side of the
common. Photo from the Historical Society Collection.

Peggy Huard Runs for

Hudson School Board
Providing a proper budget for an
equal and quality education, along with
providing fair compensation packages
and appeasing the law and taxpayers
is a difficult balance, but one I hope to
contribute to and achieve!
I am a licensed and Certified Public
Accountant. I have also taken many
courses in the field of psychology.
I am excited to have the opportunity
to work with the school administration
and department heads at the onset of the
budget process, helping them utilize more
sound estimates that will reduce the need
for budget transfers.
A budget is a basic, fundamental internal
control tool. I also hope to assist the
school department in implementing other
basic, fundamental internal controls to
prevent the school district resources from
being wasted or otherwise misappropriated. Internal
controls are basic, fundamental tools used by CPAs to
evaluate management.
I hope to recommend and implement some changes
that will assist the school department in providing ALL
of the special education children in receiving a free
and appropriate public education in the least restrictive
environment as required by law, which is in the classroom
when possible.

Far too many of the special education

services are being provided by contractors
not only outside the classroom, but
outside the school district at costs above
union contract provisions and Medicaid
billing rates!
I hope to address some simple, legal,
cost effective methods for positive
improvement in this department;
including peer mentoring, dual
certification and effective placement
of identified students with their friends
where possible, within the regular
classroom setting.
A focus on increasing the awareness
of others outside the special education
program and increasing the self-esteem
of the special education children would
undoubtedly decrease their stress level
while learning and test taking. This is
what is needed no close the gap in testing,
not more resources or new curriculum!
I will also entertain and encourage proposals to
increase the school district per pupil cost to align with
the other school districts and seriously consider whether
this is possible or necessary. I feel that by
going through this exercise, those that think
we need to increase the budget, will realize
that we dont!
I ask for your vote on March 10!

The Word Around Town...

Letters to our Editor

I Do Solemnly Swear ...

and affirm that I will faithfully and impartially
discharge and perform all duties incumbent on me
according to the best of my abilities, agreeable to the
rules and regulations of this (NH) constitution and laws
of the state of New Hampshire, so help me God.
This is the oath of office in NH that every elected
official swears by. We hear these words often in movies,
on television or perhaps on local cable access. Is it
ministerial? A formality? Is it a ritual of an era long
ago when a persons word actually meant something?
If these words no longer hold the weighty idea that is
embodied in its vows, then why even continue it? What
does it mean to you? Do you care if those you elect
ever have these words cross their mind again once they
have lowered their right hand? Do any of you believe
that if you swore that oath that you should look away
when you know laws have been ignored, manipulated or
simply broken? It is someone elses job to worry about
it? To whom should the elected believe these words are
for? The connected? Those that have vested financial
interest? Family members? Or should the primary goal
of elected office be to embody the spirit of the law?
Apply it equally and without prejudice? Should people
you elect spend their time finding grey areas, loopholes,
or otherwise disingenuous ways to provide for and
continue the growth of government at the expense of
those it purports to serve?
The republican form of government our founding
fathers set up for us relied on the ethics and morality
of good (wo)men. They understood that unchecked
power absolutely corrupted. They set forth checks and
balances so that no one corner of government could
rule the other and in the end, the people had the power
to change those things that no longer kept the peoples
interests first. Not any particular group upon anothers.
Not child against parent. Not taxpayer against
employee. Not retired against employed. But with each
in mind and the impact of every decision upon every
citizen represented.

On March 10 you will get to decide if you want

to continue electing good decent folks that may or
may not take this oath as seriously as they should?
Remember, this is how we as a community grow
representatives that usually find their way to Concord,
then on to Washington. Are you happy with their
performance? Again, they cut their teeth here, in
localities. Learning their manipulative crafts where few
were watching and most plainly trusted they were doing
the public good. These arent bad people. They have
simply lost their way because there is no consequence.
There is no one holding them accountable.
My name is Jason Guerrette and I am asking for your
vote on Tuesday, March 10. I will commit only one
thing to you. I will embody the oath I take, live and
breathe its ideals, and defend each and every one of you
to the very best of my abilities. Please visit my website
http://jasonguerrette.info or call me directly if you care
to hear from me first hand. 603-548-1159.
If you do not change direction, you may end up
where you are heading. Lao Tzu
Jason Guerrette, Litchfield

Its Voting Time all

Across the Land
And here in Hudson too. For me, I have more
enjoyment out of celebrating St. Pattys Day than I do
the rituals of voting; at least I know what Im getting.
But voting season sets to me asking if voters are
really asking the hard questions and enough questions
of the candidates and incumbents, because all of the
discourse in the HLNs opinions and thumbs sections,
kind of leads me to believe that maybe thats not being
done. When you, the voters, ask questions and dont
get answers or complete and understandable answers,
is it maybe because youre not supposed to get answers
that make any sense or that can be referred to later on;
by any office holders? If youre not getting the answers
you want to your questions, than why even vote at all,

because youre going through the movements of voting

but not really having any impact on the outcome and
also what you expect from that elected (selected) office
holder. Voting is a serious matter, if you dont think
youre getting all the accurate information you need to
make your voting decision on; than how can you vote
for any candidate and how can you criticize any office
holder later on. Doesnt all of that make sense?
Jerry Gutekunst, Hudson

Fire Station Construction is Best

for the Future
As President of the Hudson Firefighters Relief
Association, Captain with the Hudson Fire Department
and town resident and taxpayer, I am in favor of
building a new south end fire station and rehabilitating
the existing Leonard L. Smith Fire Station. This
important and major decision will not only impact
todays residents but residents of future generations and
lies with you the voters on town Election Day, March
Fire Chief Rob Buxton and the members of the
Hudson Fire Department are very aware of the need to
be fiscally responsible in these difficult times. The Chief
has put forth much time and effort to provide a plan
not only to get the best and most from each dollar to
better the emergency services for our citizens but also to
provide for the towns firefighters.
With the growth of the town, the population and
response patterns have changed since the Burns Hill
Station was constructed in the 1980s. The station
no longer meets the needs of the fire department for
the operation of a fulltime crew being housed in the
building. The location of the station also does not
provide for the fastest and most direct response patterns
for the south end or the remaining parts of town.
The rehabilitation of the Leonard L. Smith Fire
Station is not something new. This has been on the

radar for several years. The station is pretty much in the

same state as after it had been constructed in the 1950s
but still has much life left in the building, which would
come with the modernization that is planned.
Both of these projects will drastically impact
department operations allowing your firefighters to
provide improved service to you, the taxpayer.
A few years ago, a plan was put forward to
construct a new central fire station at a cost of around
$6,000,000. The warrant articles that voters will be
asked to approve on March 10 will complete both
construction of a new station and the rehabilitation of
the Leonard L. Smith Fire Station projects at half the
I strongly urge all town residents to carefully consider
our public safety needs for the present and future. Also,
carefully look at the financial reasoning why Chief
Buxton has put this plan together. I ask you to support
Warrant Articles 2 and 9, the construction of a new fire
station and the rehabilitation of the Leonard L. Smith
Fire Station.
David S. Morin, President, Hudson Firefighters Relief

What an Irony in Litchfield

I love that Jason Guerrette is delaying the voting in
Litchfield. I was worried that people might forget what
happened when he was on the school board. Its ironic
that the person who complains of abuse of power is
abusing whatever small sliver of power he holds right
now. I hope this is a red flag for anyone and everyone
who was thinking of voting for him for a town office.
Im sure he did ask for information from the school
board on a regular basis and is under the delusion that
they should negotiate with him personally because he
believes he has all the answers. Im fine with voting a
few weeks later, but Im not sure how people will feel
about him costing the town more money.

Hudson BOS Settles Lawsuit with Civil Liberties Union for $37K
by Doug Robinson
The Hudson Board of Selectmen agreed to settle
with the American Civil Liberties Union of New
Hampshire on a case involving a homeless man
who had panhandled in the area and was said
by the union to have been harassed by Hudson
Police. On the advice of legal counsel, the BOS
reached an agreement on Feb. 10 with the ACLU
of NH and plaintiff Jeffrey Pendleton for $37,350.
The lawsuit stated that the Hudson Police
Department unconstitutionally harassed and
punished Pendleton from panhandling in the Town
of Hudson. Selectman Richard Maddox stated, I
move to approve the settlement and to authorize
the town administrator to sign the settlement
agreement. The vote was 3 to 1, with Chairman
Coutu against.
The Hudson Board of Selectmen was not
unanimous with its decision as Chairman
Roger Coutu voted against to motion to sign the
Selectman Richard Maddox commented during
a phone interview that this lawsuit could grow
into the hundreds of thousands of dollars: The
ACLU has all kinds of money. They wont quit.
In addition, he stated during the meeting that
Selectman Ben Nadeau said that he was going to
sign the settlement because it would cost more
money in the long run.
Chairman Coutu was very upset with the
settlement responding, To have this guy
(Pendleton) violate a town ordinance and the
ACLU pick up $28,000, another lawyer $2,000
and the gentleman, who I feel was illegally
soliciting funds, to get $7,350 goes totally against
my principles. I will not, I will not support this.
We are conceding to the ACLU.
Hudson Town Administrator Steve Malizia
stated, This settlement will not cost the town a
dime, nor will it cost our taxpayers any money
at all. The Property Liability Trust Company
which will be paying this settlement was our
old insurance company, and we stopped doing
business with them last July. They are footing the
bill. We have a different insurance company now
which handles these types of situations.
The ACLU of NH defined their position in an
August 2014 Nashua Telegraph editorial: The
Town of Hudson thinks its a crime for a poor
person to peacefully hold a sign on a sidewalk
asking other for financial assistance. Its not a
crime. Its speech protected by the Constitution.
They continued to explain, The Hudson Police
Departments practice of suppressing the rights of
peaceful panhandlers is pervasive and disturbing.
From March 2011 to March 2014, at least 12
Hudson police officers in at least 18 separate
incidents stopped panhandlers and instructed
them that panhandling was illegal or required a
permit. These panhandlers were then ordered to
be on their way.
At least two panhandlers - including Pendleton
- were cited and directed to go to court. Each of
these incidents concerned peaceful panhandling,

this disturbing practice in two ways - each of
which Mr. Pendleton has experienced firsthand.
First, Hudson police officers inform peaceful
panhandlers that panhandling is illegal in
all of Hudson, including on sidewalks and
in other public places. However, there is no
state or municipal law that makes panhandling
illegal. The message from the Town is loud
and clear: peaceful panhandling by the poor
and homeless is unwelcome in Hudson,
and all panhandlers should go back over the
bridge spanning the Merrimack River to the

prejudice, in order to avoid the expense and time
associated with a preliminary injunction hearing,

Maintaining Your





Piece of the Pie

The Income Tax Return

W.F.Boutin EA - Total Tax Solutions LLC

Over the past two years, there has been much to say about the tax
code, changes to the tax code and bills proposed to amend the tax
code. For taxpayers to better understand how these code changes affect
them, I feel that a dissection of the filing tax Form 1040 is required so
that certain terms that are used will be thoroughly understood. The most
important terms to understand is the difference between total (gross)
income, adjusted gross income (AGI) and taxable income.
If you take a look at a Form 1040, the lines 7-21 (appropriately
labeled Income) is the area where you enter in all of your various
taxable income items. Some income line entries require having
additional forms, tax schedules or worksheets completed to arrive at the
net income to be entered on these lines. For instance a self employed
individual has to complete SCH. C, and possibly a depreciation, auto
expense, business use of home or inventory worksheet to arrive at the
net income to be entered on line 12. Line 22 is the summation of all of
the income entries and appropriately titled your total income (gross
Lines 23-35 are for adjustments (deductions) allowed for all qualifying
taxpayers under current tax law. These adjustments are summarized on
line 36 and then subtracted from your total income (line 22) to arrive at
what is known as your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) on line 37.
(The term AGI will be used throughout many of these articles and is
a qualifying factor used in determining many credits and deductions
that have phase-out limits based upon the AGI.)
Once the AGI is established, you are allowed to subtract either a
standard deduction, based upon your filing status, (single, head of
household, married filing joint) or if it is more beneficial, you can
itemize qualifying deductions. You will itemize if the sum of these
deductions will exceed the allowed standard deduction. Itemizing
deductions will be covered in depth in a future article.
(Note: Determining filing status is usually a straight forward procedure
for most individuals. However the rules regulating the head of household or qualifying widow(er) status can become a tad more time
consuming. Maintaining a home/apartment without a qualifying child
or relative does not qualify a taxpayer as a head of household)
Once you have subtracted the standard or itemized deduction from
your AGI total, you are now allowed to subtract a personal exemption
for each qualifying person claimed in the exemption section (Lines 6a
through 6d) of the Form 1040. An exemption is allowed for each person
you can claim as a dependent on the return as well as for yourself and
spouse if married.
(Note: A very specific criterion is required to be met under the rules
for a qualifying child or qualifying relative to enable you to claim an
individual as your dependent.)
(The amount of income to be subtracted for exemptions and standard
deductions are usually adjusted for inflation each year).
The income left after the subtractions of the standard/itemized
deductions and personal exemptions is your taxable income.
Next week, we will explain the makeup of the Tax Rate Schedule and
how the tax tables used to determine tax owed on the taxable income is

Kinder Morgan Open House Offers Early

Dialogue about Natural Gas Pipeline
by Jay Hobson
Natural gas transporter Kinder Morgan hopes to bring an
extension of the Northeast Energy Direct, part of the Tennessee Gas
Pipeline natural gas pipeline, through southern New Hampshire
and held an open house in Hudson on Feb. 19 with many
interested parties, both pro and con, in attendance.
Kinder Morgan is an energy transport business that transports
natural gas, CO2 and petroleum products throughout the country.
The proposed pipeline would pass through Milford, Brookline,
Amherst, Merrimack, Litchfield, Londonderry, Hudson and Pelham
before reaching its terminus in Dracut, Mass., and joining other
Although there was no formal presentation, attendees were
given a slide show presentation that was looped continuously,
and representatives of Kinder Morgan were on hand to answer
New England Regional Policy Coordinator Adam J. Lupino of
Laborers International Union of North America said that his union
was in favor of the pipeline.
Our union supports the project because were a union of
laborers and its about the jobs and the good to the community,
Lupino said.
Lupino said that the project could produce 3,000 construction
Itll be a lifeline for our members who want to go to work,
Lupino said.
According to Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Media
Relations Spokesperson Tamara Young-Allen, the process is still in
the early stages.
Tennessee Gas (the actual applicant) is in what is called prefiling, which is an informal process that pipeline companies can
opt to use to inform the government, federal, state and local and
the public about what plan they have to construct and operate
a pipeline and to get early on what issues those entities or
stakeholders will have, said Young-Allen.
Young-Allen said that at this stage it is informal and that theres
nothing before the commission, but when the commission receives
the information, site visits and public meetings will be held to
ascertain public input.
The commission is comprised of five presidentially appointed
commissioners and that the vote to proceed with a project is by
majority vote. Pelham resident Robert Rutledge said that it was the
impact to the environment and pollution issues that bothered him.
Windham resident Homer Sampson said that his opposition was
because of property values to his home.
Its complicated, Sampson explained. I have a right of way
and about one third of my land is in the right of way and two thirds
of my land is my house and my driveway and everything else.
What theyre proposing is to come right up the edge of my property

Sampson said that after the land is bulldozed and you sink this
monster on the property, what do you think is going to happen to
my property value?
Kinder Morgans Public Affairs VP Allen Fore said that the project
is important to the region as the desire for safe and affordable
natural gas is rising.
New England is very close to where the natural gas is produced,
in one of the largest gas fields in the country, but you
have one of the most expensive gas prices in the country
because there is no pipeline to get it to you, he said.
Fore said that the gas is produced by a process known
as fracking or forcing water at high pressure into the
ground to release the gas.
Open houses like this allows for public conversation
in an informal setting to enable us to answer questions,
Fore said.
Fore explained that the filing with FERC is a lengthy
process and eventually they will be doing a lot of town
presentations at public hearings.
Liberty Utilities is our customer in New Hampshire
for natural gas. They will receive the gas from us, and
they will distribute it to their customers which are homes
and businesses, Fore said.
Fore said that in addition to where Liberty Utilities
already has gas service, they are looking to expand that
gas service into towns that currently do not have natural
gas service.
Kinder Morgans VP of Public Affairs Allen Fore indicates on a map the largest natural

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

submitted by David S. Morin,

HFD Public Information Liaison
At 7:08 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 24, a 9-1-1 call alerted
Hudson firefighters to a carbon monoxide incident at 75
River Road. On arrival at the scene, firefighters found one
person suffering severe carbon monoxide poisoning. The
victim was slumped over in the operators seat of a fork
truck. After evaluating the patient, a medical helicopter
was requested to transport the patient to a hyperbaric
chamber at a Boston hospital.
Firefighters checked the building with air monitoring
equipment and found very high levels of carbon
monoxide at 100 parts per billion. Zero is the standard;
fire department meters sound an alarm at 35-40.
Ventilation fans were used to force fresh air into the
building clearing the carbon monoxide.
Additional firefighters set up a landing zone at the

Football Championship Banner Raised at Halftime
ceremony that featured the raising of the Campbell
football teams championship banner.
In the fall of 2014, Coach Greg Gushs team brought the
schools first-ever football state title back to Cougar Country

second stanza, the Pelham offense went into hibernation,
which led to an 8-0 run for the Cougars. A strong move

than dealerships typically understand that such an approach can
be risky. When buying from a private seller, such purchases are
typically as-is, and rarely are buyers protected with extended warranties that may be offered by dealers who specialize in preowned
Buying from private sellers may also leave buyers more susceptible to fraud. Odometer fraud is one type of fraud that buyers
must be especially wary of when buying a preowned vehicle from
a private seller, and the following are a handful of ways buyers can

Thumbs up to
Hudson voters who speak up to improve our town
and education for our children, while voting to
keep taxes within reason, of the services we are
provided. Last year we gave our raises that increase
for three years. It is unfortunate there are no town/
school warrant articles to supplement revenue for
the town/school, the new fire station high cost to
the taxpayer and the increases in the town/school
warrant articles of 1.27 per thousand roughly $320
more. Not including the rise in property taxes from
town wide reassessing properties. I challenged out
BOS and HSB to come up with ways to generate
revenue in a safe manner other than increasing
property taxes or car registration fees.

The Alvirne Swimming & Diving program finished off an incredible run to an
amazing season when they attended the state championships held at University of
New Hampshires Swazey Pool on Saturday. Combined, the Broncos brought 12
swimmers and divers to the championships, six girls and six boys. Captain Lauren
Somers, Katja Adriany, Ashley Dumais, Julia Balukonis and Haley Summers led
the girls team to a 120-point fifth-place finish while Captain Frank Cunniff, Travis
Tornstrom, Kendall Westhoff, John Sojka, Patrick Cabrera and Zach Wambsgnass
rounded out an 80-point ninth-place finish for the boys team.
Beginning the day, Ashley Dumais and Haley Summers would team up with
Diver Julia Balukonis and captain Erin Beals for a solid eighth-place (2.05.84) finish
in the 200 medley relay to start things off. Junior Lauren Somers would go on to
put the absolute stamp on the day by taking two individual state titles in the 50 and
100 freestyle events, touching the wall at 24.20 and 52.14, respectively, both of
which were Alvirne swimming records.
Somers would go on to team up with Katja Adriany, Dumais and Summers
in taking home the schools first-ever relay state title in the 200 freestyle relay
(1.43.46) along with a solid fourth-place finish in the 400 freestyle relay (3.50.25),
both of which were also in school record fashion. Balukonis, who competed in
the 1 meter diving event the weekend prior turned in an outstanding fourth-place
229-point score to finish off the diving competition. The girls would round out the
day with great performances by Summers fifth-place 50 freestyle (26.20), Adrianys
11th-place 50 freestyle (27.27) and 15th place in the 100 freestyle (1.00.28), and
Dumais 12th place 50 freestyle (27.63).

Campbell Freshman Wrestler Takes D-3 State Title
Staff photos by Marc Ayotte

Michael Killoran (CHS) battles the

Generals Zach Feudner in the 220 title bout.

by Marc Ayotte
It was a banner day for the CHS wrestling team who hosted this years D-3
State Championships, as nine members earned medals and thereby qualified
to compete at the Meet of Champions to be held at Nashua North on
Saturday, Feb. 28. The Cougars were led by Fab Frosh Marc Boomhower who
dominated the 145 weight class in garnering the individual state title. In the
team competition, Campbell, after finishing second behind Plymouth during
the regular season, repeated the feat, finishing just 11 points behind the 2015
State Champion Bobcats.
Boomhower entered the tournament with a stellar 23-6 regular season
mark, and proceeded to dismantle his competition, posting an unblemished
3-0 record on the day. The CHS first-year varsity grappler steamrolled Danny
Cummings of Franklin in his first bout with a 16-3 major decision. In the
semi-finals, he stopped Sam Slaughter (Plymouth) with a win by fall (WBF)
at 1:25, setting up the championship bout with Tyler Sharron. The Newport
finalist was no match for the destined Cougar who Lowered the Boom on his
Tiger foe by posting another impressive major decision win; this one of the
17-5 variety.
Eight other Campbell wrestlers enjoyed the parade to the podium in
the Cougar Den. In addition to Boomhowers title run, there were three
second-place finishers, and five third-place showings. Coming away with
second-place medals were a trio of Cougar captains: Tyler McCrady (138,
2-1, highlighted by a 12-1 major decision over Kyle Bolduc of Winnisquam),
Connar Quigley (152, 2-1, including a 1:20 pin over the Pythons Chase
Crawford in the semis), and Michael Killoran (220), also posting two wins

against one loss,

The Alvirne High School coed unified basketball team finished
its regular season this past week in a whirlwind fashion, playing
on back-to-back days at Nashua South and Pinkerton Academy,
respectively. At South, the Broncos dropped a 64-52 decision
to the undefeated Panthers but rebounded nicely and battled the
Astros to a 54-54 deadlock in the season finale. Forty schools
participate in the NHIAA-supported program with locations
ranging throughout the state.
Coed unified sports have been in existence for five years at
AHS and third-year school Principal Steve Beals is also in his
third year of involvement with the Bronco program. Indicating
that the objective of the basketball team in particular, is to have at
least one event per week (game or practice), Beals touched upon
the more important aspect of the concept of unified sports: Our
objective is for all students at Alvirne High School to participate in
interscholastic activities.
It is Beals commitment, dedication and belief in that

years as participants become increasingly active in both school
and community events. The spirit of unified is so significant at
Alvirne, expressed Beals.
He continued by
saying that the unified
sports program allows
these athletes to play the
respective sports while
forming relationships
with their own school
peers as well as with
other students from
participating schools.
It builds a comfort
level between schools,
noted Beals, adding

Additionally, although the games are played on more of an
informal basis, Beals
notes that the participants
keep alive the spirit of
competition. And sports
is not the only arena
where the spirit of unified
is present, with students
in other school activities
such as theater and
the prom, building
sportsmanship as well as
character along the way.
