How Italian Food Should Be!!
From Napoli, Italy to Salem, NH
How Italian Food Should Be!!
by AJ Dickinson
In 1886, a man named David
Alonzo Greeley would routinely
gather musicians and music lovers
from Pelham and other nearby
communities to partake in a full day
of fellowship and performances. Fast-
forwarding now to 1996, the Town of
Pelham, while celebrating its 250th
anniversary, sought to recognize this
man and his traditions of singing as a
community group. On April 13 and
14, 1996 the Pelham Sing Chorus
dedicated its concert at the Memorial
School to Greeley. Since then, the
community chorus continues to honor
and commemorate Greeleys devotion
to music by changing their name to
The New Greeley Singers.
On Sunday, January 12, The New
Greeley Singers proceeded to hold
their annual holiday concert after it
had previously been postponed due
to snow. The hour-long performance
showcased not only choral works by
The New Greeley Singers but also
works by the Merrimack Valley Flute
Choir. During the show, audience
members were encouraged to sing
along with the choir, soon enough
everybody who was in the First
Congregational Church had burst
out in song. The New Greeley
Singers perform two shows a year
on top of their well-known cabaret
that will be held at the town hall
on March 22. For information
regarding membership and upcoming
events visit their website at www.

New Greeley Singers
by Tom Tollefson
Its a little early for Fathers Day, but Saturday morning on January 11
felt like it at the Pelham Public Library as 10 children came with their
dads for the Daddy and Donuts event. For 45 minutes, children had a
chance to listen to stories, play games and make crafts with their fathers.
This free activity is held once a month on Saturday morning to give
dads and children a chance to share quality time and to give the children
time to learn and enjoy books.
They love the stories and crafts, Jared Watson said about his two
children as he watched them play. I work fairly long hours and it gives
me a chance to spend one-on-one time with them.
Each month has a different theme. The theme for this months session
was ice-skating. Library Assistant Marilyn Grenda read the Polar Skater
by Sally Grindley and Pearls New Skates by Holly Keller to the wide-
eyed youngsters. After story time, the children and their dads made mini
ice-skating rinks out of paper plates, cotton and glitter. They also played

Rusty has hit the Megabucks. His story gets even better as Rusty did
not even have to lay down his buck to win the Megabucks jackpot! He
is stepping on up, as one would say, to live at Sunset View Stables in
Candia.
The 21-year-old quarter horse gelding, has resided in the elds of
Ralph Barretts home in Pelham for many years. Due to Rustys age and
economic conditions Barrett faces, Rusty is in need of special care and a
new home.
In speaking with Barrett, he conrmed that he had been keeping Rusty
in a pen behind his Russell Drive home. Barrett had been looking for
a new home for Rusty over the past several weeks, but was discouraged
after learning some area rescues charged up to a $600 surrender fee.
Local neighbors complained to the authorities about the care that Rusty
had been receiving. In addition, neighbors had taken it upon themselves
to trespass on to Barretts property to feed him improperly. Neighbors
complained about Rustys lack of a blanket, where in fact, a blanket was

School Board
Opts Not to Move
Forward with
School Addition
by Barbara OBrien
It was a torturous and intense process, one that
began shortly after school district elections were over
last March, but Windham School Board members have
nally decided not to put forth a bond article to build
an addition to Windham Middle School, at least not
this year. The reason? The majority of the ve board
members felt the number one priority this year needs
to be the passage of new teacher and instructional aide
contracts.
Nobody on the school board or SAU administration
denies that space constraints and class sizes are a major
and worsening problem in the Windham School District.
The issue has been in the forefront and under public
scrutiny for several years already. And the problem is
not likely to go away, certainly not in the next decade or
so, but with Windhams already high tax rate and several
other educational issues needing to be solved; the school
board decided not to move forward with expanding
classroom and other facility space.
The 11th-hour decision came during the January 7
school board meeting, despite a presentation for an
addition to Windham Middle School that came earlier
in the evening. The presentation, actually, included
two versions of the proposed addition; one with a new
access/egress off Heritage Hill Road, the other only
an addition to the existing building. Throughout the
discussion at the beginning of the meeting, school
district ofcials seemed to prefer the proposal that
included the improved connection to Heritage Hill
Road.
During the public comment portion of the meeting,
residents wanted to know how an addition to the middle
school would affect class sizes and the over-capacity
issue. According to information presented during the
discussion, Windham Middle School is about 700
students over capacity right now. The proposed addition
would have provided new space for about 250 students
per grade level (grades six through eight) and lowered
class sizes to 25 students. Currently, some classes have
up to 30 students. It also would have added science
labs, a multi-purpose room, family consumer education
space and a technology lab. The cost to have done the
project with an access road was quoted at $15,975,000,
while an addition without road improvements would
have been in the neighborhood of $14,950,000. This
portion of the proposal would only have been phase one
of two phases.
School board chairman Michael Joanis said he had
concerns about the proposal because it only affected
the capacity at Windham Middle School, while not
providing any relief to Center or Golden Brook Schools.
School board member Dennis Senibaldi, the only school
board member who wanted to move forward with the
proposed addition, said he realized it didnt x all the
problems but would make some progress. The proposal
would have allowed Windham Middle School to meet
state requirements for an approved middle school, which
it currently does not.
Superintendent Winfried Feneberg, who is in the midst
of his rst budget season in that capacity, noted that the
school board faces a slew of facility issues, including
unabated community growth. We picked up 60 more
kids this year, from last year, and are expecting 30 more
next year, Feneberg stated. None of this is trivial,
Feneberg said. It is a huge mountain to scale.
I dont know if I can support even phase one, what
with the other issues the district is facing, school
board member Jerome Rekart commented, listing the
operating budget and the two pending contracts. Those
issues could already add 61 cents to the 2014 tax rate,
he noted. We have to start somewhere, Senibaldi
responded. We cant be paralyzed by fear of whats
waiting to be done. We need to move forward,
Senibaldi said. Then, we need to work our butts off to
make sure these warrant articles pass, he commented.
Senibaldi did add, however, that he feels the
proposed operating budget for 2014-2015 could
be lower than where it stands now. Reducing the
operating budget cannot pay for an addition to the
school, Superintendent Feneberg emphasized. You
cant believe in the magical god of money above us,
Senibaldi answered back, referring to the overall impact
on taxpayers. Its going to be a step-by-step crawl over
several years to solve all the problems, Senibaldi stated.
Chairman Joanis was incensed by Senibaldis comment
insinuating that other board members are afraid of
making decisions. Priorities change from year to year,
Joanis said. The teacher contract is more important this
year than it was last year, he said, noting that teachers
have already been without a contract for two years. Its
not fear [of proposing an addition], Joanis said. Its
concern over doing something we might regret later.
Joanis said he disagreed with Senibaldi 100%. Im not
going to vote to put a facility warrant article on the ballot
until a teacher contract passes, Joanis stated, saying he
believes thats the top priority. The contract is 10 times
more important, he said.
Rekart agreed with Joanis, saying, The teachers
are the most important part of a childs education.
Commenting that he was certainly not afraid of making
decisions, Rekart said he was simply attempting to be
nancially conservative. Im looking at what voters
can afford, he said. Rekart also said he wasnt sure the
latest proposal for an addition was the best bang for the
buck. I feel its very expensive, Rekart said. Rekart
suggested that only the access/egress road portion of the
project be undertaken this year (estimate of $165,000).

Windham School Board Chairman Michael Joanis expressed
appreciation to all the students and their dedicated parents, who

Schools.
As a result of the most recent collection of box tops, Center

New Equipment Helps to
Save Life of Heart Attack Victim
by Barbara OBrien
Fire Chief Tom McPherson expressed his sincere appreciation to
the residents of Windham for always being so supportive of requests
for new and improved emergency equipment.
Most recently, on December 27, the newly purchased
LifePack-15 was put to work on a 64-year-old local resident who
was suffering chest pains; allowing vital medical information to
be sent directly to an area hospital. As a result of the monitoring,
the ambulance carrying the patient was sent directly to Catholic
Medical Center in Manchester rather than rst traveling to Parkland
Medical Center in Derry. Catholic Medical Center is renowned for
its excellent cardiac unit.
While en route to Manchester, the patient suffered cardiac
arrest and was hooked up to the re departments new automatic
cardiac compression unit, which more effectively provides cardio-
pulmonary resuscitation. He was successfully resuscitated and after
stent surgery at the hospital is expected to fully recover. Without
this equipment, the outcome might not have been so positive,
McPherson said.
McPherson expressed appreciation to the four reghter/
emergency medical technicians who were on duty when the
incident occurred: Scott Zins, Jim Brown, Scott Savard and Pat
Robertson.
Happy New Year from
Windham Newcomers and Friends
submitted by Sharon Masse,
Windham Newcomers and Friends
Once again, the Windham
Newcomers and Friends holiday
party held at Atkinson Country
Club was fabulous. Great food,
wonderful company and the
highlight of the evening, our annual
gift exchange, kept us laughing.
Windham Newcomers and
Friends has been going strong for
many years and each year it keeps
growing. There are approximately
75 members. Newcomers is a
womens social club for both
new and established residents of
Windham. Yes, its true, you do not
have to be a new resident to join
and many are from the local area. Once someone does join, they
usually renew each year, unless they move. Its a no-brainer. Our
club is bustling from September through June, with a wide range of
activities to participate in. When a new member joins, she chooses
which activities she would like to receive information about
regarding monthly activities. You can choose to do as little or as
much as you would like, based on your interests and schedule.
Some of the activities offered are: Bunco, lunch bunch, a
daytime and an evening book club, outdoors group, koffee klatch,
recipe club, Broadway Nites,
theater group, neighbors in
need and more. We also enjoy
day trips, three annual membership-wide socials and other get-
togethers.
Women of all ages are welcome. Our members include women
who work outside the home, and those who dont; women with
small children, grown children, no children. Married or single, it
doesnt matter. Girls just want to have fun and fellowship and thats
what we do. The wide variety of women, and where they come
from, makes for a very interesting group.
If you are interested in learning more about Windham
Newcomers and Friends, you can inquire via email at
windhamnewcomers@gmail.com, check out our website at www.

Te George Desmarais Fund
George and his wife Debbie have been married
for 24 years. George has lived in Pelham since 1970
and Debbie her whole life. He served in the Army
from 1972 to 1974. Tey have three children and
three grandchildren and they have legal custody and
are raising two of the grandchildren. George was
very active in his community. He was one of the frst
members in the Citizens Emergency Response Team
(CERT) program who went to the southern states to
help when hurricane Irene struck. He was an active
member at St. Patricks mens group. George was the
frst to ofer a ride or help in any way he could when
special projects would come up especially when it came
to someone in need.
In 2007, Debbie had triple bypass heart surgery and
on New Years Eve in 2009, George got a call from his
doctor that he had prostate cancer. His cancer had
already spread to the bone, it was in his skull and he
needed surgery. George was taking hormone therapy,
which kept the cancer at bay for fve years until the
summer of 2012. Te cancer was spreading and his
hormone therapy was no longer working. He began
radiation treatment and later chemo with little results.
In June of 2013, George was diagnosed with another
cancer, multiple myeloma which was totally unrelated
to his prostate cancer.
Unfortunately, there is no treatment for both
cancers. His prostate cancer was spreading dramatically
and his chemo was not working. So for fve months,
George and Debbie went twice a week for two diferent
treatments, changing the prostate cancer chemo
several times due to its failure until his prostate cancer
became so out of control, his doctor decided to stop
the myeloma treatment and concentrate on the prostate
cancer. He has lost 65 pounds and is so sick, under a
lot of pain that he cannot get out of bed and those days
are becoming more frequent.
George has been put in the hospice program and it
will not be much longer before he passes. His biggest
concern is the fnancial impact on the family. Tey
own their home and he has no life insurance. Debbie
has taken a lot of unpaid time of from work to be with
him at his appointments and be home for their two
grandchildren, 5 and 11, who they have been raising for
11 years.
Te Pelham Good Neighbor Fund wants to help
the Desmarais family. We have established the George
Desmarais Fund at Enterprise Bank. If you would like
to make a tax deduction donation on line, please visit
our website at www.pelhamgoodneighborfund.org and
under comments type in George Desmarais Fund or
you can, make your check payable to the Pelham Good
Neighbor Fund, P.O. Box 953, Pelham, NH 03076 and
write in George Desmarais Fund in the memo portion
of the check.
Debbie says that George is the love of her life which
has been put to the test over the years but like George
always said to me, It was always us baby, you and me;
we can get through anything if we stay a team. We
are asking for your fnancial support for the Desmarais
family. Tey are not only facing the loss of a husband,
father and grandfather but also the fnancial expenses of
maintaining a home.

Veterans of Foreign Wars, Pelham
PESs Holly Doe Receives 2012 Presidential Awards
for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching
submitted by New Hampshire Department of Education
On December 20, 2013, President Obama named 102
mathematics and science teachers as recipients of the prestigious
Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science
Teaching (PAEMST). Holly Doe, a teacher at Pelham Elementary
School (PES), has been selected as a 2012 Presidential Award
for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching recipient.
Following an initial selection process done at the state level,
the winners are selected by a panel of distinguished scientists,
mathematicians and educators. Each year the award alternates
between mathematics and science teachers teaching kindergarten
through sixth grade and those teaching seventh through 12th grades.
Winners of this presidential honor receive a $10,000 award from
the National Science Foundation to be used at their discretion. They
also are invited to Washington, DC, for an awards ceremony and
several days of educational and celebratory events, including visits
with members of Congress and the administration.
The educators receiving these awards are recognized for
signicantly improving their students understanding of mathematics
and science, for exemplary teaching and for demonstrating
educational goals that help them maintain positions of professional
leadership.
New Hampshire is fortunate to be taking part in the Presidential
Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching
program. This educational awards program celebrates all that these
outstanding individuals represent and honors their commitment
to education. Honoring these educators is an exceptional way to
celebrate the many outstanding and dedicated people teaching
in New Hampshire schools, said Virginia M. Barry, Ph.D.,
Commissioner of Education. By recognizing the importance
of outstanding educators we hope to encourage more people to
consider a career in education and retain talented people to the
challenges and adventures of teaching.
The presidential awards program was established in 1983 to
identify outstanding teachers who can serve as role models for their
colleagues. The goal of the program is to encourage highly capable
individuals to enter and remain in the teaching eld.
Nominations for this award at the state level come from the
teachers colleagues, administrators, students, parents of students
and other community members. To be eligible, a teacher must
spend half of his or her time or more in a public or private school
and have a minimum of ve years teaching experience. The 2014
Awards will honor mathematics and science (including computer
science) teachers working in grades K-6. Nominations for the 2014
PAEMST are open through April 1, 2014.
The Department of Education administers and presents awards
to recognize excellence in education with the goal of building
a network that will enable others to use their expertise. For
more information about other awards administered through the
Department of Education, visit www.education.nh.gov/recognition/
index.htm or contact Lori Temple, Public Information Ofcer at Lori.

Holly Doe has taught in a fourth grade self-contained classroom,
a technology lab and, most recently, as a rst through fth grade
enrichment teacher with a strong focus on science, technology,
engineering and mathematics (STEM).
Holly is a member of the New Hampshire Society for Technology
in Education (NHSTE) and the New Hampshire Science Teachers
Association. She has presented at a variety of New England
conferences including the New England League of Middle Schools
Conference and the Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference.
Holly has coached a fourth and fth grade LEGO League team as
well as after-school robotics clubs and she is a member of the LEGO
Education Advisory Panel providing leadership and feedback on
STEM solutions in the elementary classroom.
The activity Holly featured in her PAEMST video was an
engineering lesson involving the oceans. The activity began
with a wordless picture book that drew rst grade students into

Heating Assistance
For Granite Staters
Critical During
Winter Months
As Extreme Winter Weather
Covers Major Portions of the
United States, Shaheen Met
with NH Offcials to Discuss
Importance of LIHEAP
submitted by the Ofce of Senator Jeanne Shaheen
As major sections of the United States including New Hampshire
experience extreme winter weather conditions, U.S. Senator Jeanne
Shaheen (D-NH) met with ofcials from the New Hampshire
Ofce of Energy and Planning and New Hampshire Community
Action Programs to highlight the importance of funding for the Low
Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). LIHEAP helps
seniors and low income households with home heating costs.
With temperatures around the country reaching well below zero
home heating assistance is more important than ever, Shaheen
said. LIHEAP is a critical program for New Hampshire seniors
and low income families and as a result Im going to keep working
to boost the programs funding so that Granite Staters get the
assistance they need.
In recent years, the struggling U.S. economy and high energy
prices have caused record numbers of Americans to apply for
home heating assistance. Currently, however, the number of
households eligible for LIHEAP continues to surpass those able to
receive assistance. Shaheen has been a strong supporter of the
LIHEAP program throughout her time in the Senate advocating
for its funding every year since 2009. Shaheen was recently part
of a successful bipartisan effort to get Health and Human Service
Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, to expedite the release of LIHEAP
funds allowing those in need to receive assistance as soon as
possible. Shaheen also wrote to President Obama urging him to
include no less than $4.7 billion for LIHEAP in his FY 2015 funding
request.

Impact Fees for Commercial Permits Analyzed
by Barbara OBrien
Impact fees have been on the selectmens agenda repeatedly
for the past several months in Windham. The issue came to the
forefront when it was discovered that many of the fees werent being
collected correctly and that there were problems dating back to
2008, when the new ordinance was rst enacted.
Late last year, an internal audit of the residential public safety
impact fees collected during the past ve years was conducted by
Town Administrator David Sullivan and Financial Director/Assistant
Town Administrator Dana Call. This audit showed that there had
been mistakes made by employees of the community development
department and approximately $17,000 in residential impact fees
had not been collected as required.
During the nal meeting of 2013, on December 30, Sullivan also
presented the results of an analysis of impact fees for commercial
permits issued from February 2008 until late in 2013. During the
analysis, Sullivan and Call reviewed the towns (MUNIS) database
to determine how many commercial building permits had been
issued and then obtained copies of these permits. Cover pages of all
planning board approved plans related to these properties were also
obtained. Sullivan said that some of these plans included estimated
impact fees to be collected, while others did not. Following a
continued review of these documents and the calculations used
by the building inspector to assess any impact fees, the difference
between what fees were assessed and what fees were actually
collected was determined.
According to information provided by Sullivan, 25 commercial
building permits were issued during this ve-year period. Of these
25 permits, 14 were not assessed any impact fees, nor should they
have been. These 14 permits were issued for existing structures. Of
the other 11 commercial permits issued, only three were properly
assessed regarding public safety impact fees. Eight of these 11
permits were done incorrectly, according to Sullivan, either
because the calculations were wrong or they were listed in the
wrong category. These numbers translate into mistakes being made
approximately 72 percent of the time while the impact fees were
being processed. Sullivan said there is a range of categories into
which commercial property could be placed with each charged a
different impact fee per foot for re services. Impact fees for police
services remain the same for all these properties.
According to information provided by Sullivan, the amount of
commercial impact fees calculated by the community development
department, of which Laura Scott is the director, totals $74,183.35,
while the amount subsequently calculated by town administrators
totaled $83,457.11; a difference of $9,273,76. There were no
overcharges of any impact fees, Sullivan said, noting that was the
good news. Overcharges, however, could have been returned to
the property owners.
Of the eight properties that were undercharged, nothing can be
done about the additional money that should have been assessed to
six of those properties, but some money might be recouped on two
of them, as they have not yet been issued a certicate of occupancy.
Therefore, the amount of money permanently lost to the town for
commercial impact fees is $6,584.31. It is hoped that the additional
$2,689.45 can be collected when the other two properties are
issued certicates of occupancy. Sullivan emphasized that he does
not believe there was any purposeful wrongdoing in assessing these
fees; that they were mistakes due to a lack of understanding.
Also, according to state statute, impact fees are not to be
collected until a certicate of occupancy is issued, not at the time
a building permit is issued. The only exception to this rule noted
during the meeting is when arrangements are made between the
planning board and the developer up-front. Sullivan said that plans
have been made, going forward, that are intended to avoid such
mistakes in the future.
Selectman Ross McLeod said he would like to see another audit
done by town administrators at the end of next year, since the
problems have been compounding since 2008. Selectman Roger
Hohenberger agreed with McLeods suggestion. Sullivan said that
he and Call are currently looking at any impact fee issues on a
monthly basis.
Vanessa Nysten, who is a member of the Windham Planning
Board, but said she was speaking only as a resident of the town,
said she has been very disappointed that the building inspector has
never been in attendance at the meetings where these issues were
discussed. I would like to hear from him, Nysten told selectmen.
She said she feels as if he is being blamed for the errors and not
given any opportunity to respond. Nysten also mentioned that the
departments director, Laura Scott, has strongly suggested that
oor plans be eliminated from site plan documents presented to
the planning board. Nysten disputed Scotts suggestion, saying
that to eliminate the oor plans would cause problems calculating
impact fees on certain properties. Scott did not respond to Nystens
comments. Sullivan said that a workshop on these subjects is
slated for this coming spring during which all boards and relevant
employees will be asked to attend. It is anticipated that this meeting
will be open to the public.
Still on the agenda is an analysis of impact fees paid to the school
district for year-round residential properties that might result in
additional students attending Windham schools. Although no nal
gures have been put forth, this past autumn, it was estimated that
the loss to the school district for miscalculated impact fees could be
in the vicinity of $80,000. That issue is expected to be addressed
within the next month or so.
Superintendent Explains
Snow Day Decision
Windham Resident
Wins Prestigious
Fashion Industry Scholarship
by Barbara OBrien
Deciding whether or not to cancel school or
call for a delayed opening is not a haphazard
decision, according to Windham Superintendent
Winfried Feneberg.
Feneberg, who took on the top spot in the
Windham School District this past July 1, spoke
about the issue following several snow days that
occurred at the beginning of January and the end
of the Christmas holiday break.
A lot of thought goes into the decision,
Feneberg said. Student and staff safety is of the
utmost importance in reaching this decision,
he said. Feneberg explained that the decision
is made jointly with Windhams Highway Agent
Jack McCartney, Police Chief Gerald Lewis, the
management of the school bus company and SAU
95 Business Administrator Adam Steel. Mostly
we get it right, Feneberg said, but, sometimes,
not so much!
With most of winter still ahead, it is likely that
additional snow days will be called between now
and the arrival of warmer weather. At this point,
it is too early to say how that might affect the nal
day of the 2013-2014 school year.

It Takes Two Votes on Water Feasibility Study to Get on Ballot
by Barbara OBrien
An early December vote to deny putting a water
feasibility study on the ballot this coming March
was overturned two weeks later when the issue
was brought back to the table for a second time.
As a result, the estimated $35,000 municipal
water feasibility study will appear on this coming
Marchs ballot. The proposal is being championed
by members of the Windham Economic
Development Committee.
The rst time the vote was taken, there were
only four selectmen in attendance. Selectman
Ross McLeod was not at that meeting, resulting
in a 2 to 2 tie. Under board rules, a tie vote is
considered to be a failure. Voting in favor of
the water feasibility study during the rst vote
were Chairman Phil LoChiatto and Selectman Al
Letizio, Jr. Voting against moving forward with
the warrant article were Vice Chairman Kathleen
DiFruscia and Roger Hohenberger. As he has
commented several times this budget season,
Hohenberger said he doesnt feel this is the year
for any spending that is not absolutely necessary.
When the second vote came up for
consideration on December 30, all ve selectmen
were in attendance. The resulting reconsideration
resulted in Hohenberger and DiFruscia still
opposing putting the water study on the ballot.
However, McLeod, who had missed the rst
meeting, joined his two fellow board members,
LoChiatto and Letizio, and voted to move the
proposal to the ballot box.
According to information discussed during
the dual session, the water feasibility study
would look into the areas of Route 111, the Wall
Street corridor and the area of Route 93 near
Exit 3. Chairman of the Windham Economic
Development Committee, Ralph Valentine, said
problems with existing wells in these vicinities
have shown higher than allowable levels of
certain contaminants, predominately arsenic.
Valentine said arsenic affects approximately 20
percent of wells statewide. Although he would
not identify specic properties, Valentine said 40
areas in Windham have been affected by high
levels of arsenic, mostly along Route 111.
Members of the economic development
committee claim that a lack of municipal water
is a detriment to commercial development in
Windham; a situation they say is negatively
affecting residential taxpayers. More community
development benets all taxpayers, Valentine
said. Bringing municipal water to town is a good
thing, he said, adding that he is an advocate for
that taking place in the Town of Windham.
Initially, members of the economic development
committee wanted the water feasibility study to
be included in the 2014 towns operating budget.
However, that idea didnt go over too well and
town ofcials subsequently decided to have it
presented to voters as a separate warrant article.
Should it pass voter approval this coming March,
Valentine said the study would be put out for
competitive bid.
LoChiatto, who supports doing the study,
emphasized that performing the study would
not necessarily mean moving forward with the
installation of a municipal water system in those
specic areas of town. DiFruscia said she was
very concerned about the potential cost of such a
system to Windham residents. When asked what
the ultimate cost of implementing a municipal
water system might be, Valentine said We are
not at the point to put numbers on the table.
When questioned as to whether the committee
had checked with other communities concerning
the ultimate cost, Valentine said no comparisons
had been done. Its an awful lot of work,
Valentine said, adding that each town is different.
DiFruscia, who had attended a meeting with
Pennichuck Water Works, said a representative
from that entity has said it could cost taxpayers $1
million per mile to run a water line.
DiFruscia also said that a lot of residents
are concerned about any potential impact on
Cobbetts Pond and nearby residences, should
a municipal water system be put in place. It
would take a lot of commercial development just
to reduce the tax rate by $1, DiFruscia said. If
there is more development, there will be more
contamination, she said. I dont want to see
urban sprawl come to Windham, DiFruscia
stated. I dont feel we need municipal water to
increase commercial development along 111.
The cost of developing a water system along
that area would be astronomical. Hohenberger
said he has been hearing people say they moved
to Windham because they like the bedroom
community aspect, and dont want Windham to
develop into another Salem, New Hampshire.
Selectman Letizio disagreed with DiFruscia.
Letizio is also on the economic development
committee. The lack of municipal water
is the number one deterrent to commercial
development in Windham, Letizio said.
People are concerned about their tax bills, he
commented, adding that 92 percent of properties
in Windham are residential. The burden [for
paying the taxes] is on them, he said. Windham
is lagging signicantly behind other local areas
in commercial development, Letizio said, citing
Bedford, NH and Andover, MA, as two prime
examples.
Letizio said he supports the warrant article for
the municipal water feasibility study because he
feels it will provide a high benet at a low cost.
A municipal system would also serve to recharge
local aquifers and would benet re suppression,
he said. Letizio also said that the planning board,
school board and Fire Chief Tom McPherson have
thrown their support behind going forth with the
study. The answers we need would be found in
the study, including appropriate water sources,
the level of demand for services, the identication
of potential funding, as well as the probable costs
of installing a municipal water system, Letizio
said.
According to statistics issued during the
meeting, on a real estate tax bill of $10,000, only
$5 of that amount would be due to the cost of the
water study. The study would be a one-year cost.
Voters will get to have their say on this warrant
article, as well as many others, on Tuesday, March
11 at Windham High School. The polls will be
open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m.

interested in celebrating the Chinese New Year
with us and is not limited to any age level. The
performances are geared towards school-aged
children and adults, but all ages are welcome to
attend. No registration is required. Following
a brief introduction and history of the holiday,
entertainment will begin with a childrens
New Year song, and several performances
featuring traditional Chinese instruments with
The Erhu Ensemble. Established in 2008 under
the direction by Mr. Lin, an award winning
professional musician and music educator

Erhu instrument. The music performed through
these exquisite instruments is both beautiful and
moving.
Continuing our celebration, other highlights of
the program will be a martial arts demonstration
and two authentic Lion Dances performed in full
costume. Children will be able to participate in
making crafts to bring home and red envelopes
will be handed out at the end of the program.
Various candies and snacks from Chinatown will

Adult Education Program to Begin in March
by Barbara OBrien
The brainchild of Windham resident and former
school board candidate Dick Forde has come to
fruition. The very rst adult education classes will
be offered at Windham High School this coming
March.
Forde came to the Windham School Board
this past spring, planting the seed that would
grow into the program that was approved by
board members earlier this month. Once Forde
suggested instituting an adult education program,
school board member Jerome Rekart offered his
assistance to get the idea rolling.
Windham High School has been tagged as the
building that never sleeps. From the beginning
of its conception, the now ve-year-old high
school was intended to be more than a place to
educate teenagers; it was meant to be used as
a community facility as well. Theres always
something going on there, Forde said, noting the
extensive number of resources that are available
at the $50 million plus facility. As many of these
resources are not used during the evening, Forde
gured it would be the ideal place to hold some
adult education classes. This will increase the
number of individuals in the community who can
directly benet from the high school, he said.
Forde and Rekart held several meetings this
past year developing the proposed program. They
also discussed the idea with Windham High
School Assistant Principal Bob Dawson, who
has prior experience with continuing education
programs within the Timberlane School District.
Subsequently, SAU 95 Business Administrator
Adam Steel worked out the anticipated costs
of the program and consulted with the school
districts legal counsel on any liability issues. The
program is fairly straight-forward, in this regard,
Steel reported.
When the six-week program gets underway on
March 5, three courses will be offered: World
Cuisine, Digital Photography and Basics of
Computing. These courses are intended as an
enrichment of life, Rekart said. The courses do
not earn continuing education credits nor are they
intended for students attempting to nish high
school or to earn their GED. The initial offerings
will run until April 9, with April 16 and April 23
reserved in case of inclement weather. Classes are
scheduled to be held on Wednesdays from 7 p.m.
to 9 p.m., so as to make them more accessible to
those who work daytime hours.
Forde said that the courses which were selected
for the initial offerings have been successful
elsewhere. Forde and Rekart also spoke to various
groups of residents to determine where interests
might be.
Each course will cost a student $100, plus
any additional lab fees, if deemed appropriate.
The cost covers payment of the instructor, plus
related payroll items and includes $15 to cover
overhead. This is designed to be a self-sustaining
program, Rekart said. The cost to taxpayers will
be zero dollars. It is anticipated that a minimum
enrollment of six students will be required. Rekart
and Forde will be volunteering their services as
administrators for the adult education program.
PayPal online payments and personal checks will
be accepted. All funds collected will go directly
to the SAU.
Rekart said that instructor positions would
be offered to school district teachers rst and
then opened up to others, if necessary. Anyone
applying for an instructors position would need to
undergo a criminal background check.
As for marketing the new
program, there will be a
dedicated page on the Windham
School District site (windhamsd.
org). Were doing it on the
cheap, Rekart said. Flyers
will also be placed at various
locations around town,
including the Windham Senior
Center and the Nesmith Library.
As for the future, Rekart
said, We would love for it
to expand. Tentative plans
include offering different
courses in the fall and the spring, perhaps
even some two-part classes. If the program is
successful enough, summer offerings may also be
considered down the road.
School board members approved the new
adult education program by a vote of 3 to 0.
Voting in favor were Chairman Michael Joanis
and board members Jerome Rekart and Michelle
Farrell. Vice Chair Stephanie Wimmer and board
member Dennis Senibaldi were not in attendance
when the vote was taken.

Windhams Best Kept Secret
by Jacob Gagnon
Following a number of tough holiday tournament games, the
Windham High School girls basketball team returned to the court
ready for the longest stretch of the season. The Lady Jaguars roared
into 2014 with a strong, 54-48 victory over Pelham High School at
Windham on Friday night, January 10.
I thought both teams competed pretty hard out there today. It
was a fun game to be a part of, said Windham Head Coach Joe
Mason.
With two starting players out due to injuries, Windham
understood that they would be depending a great deal on players
who had not had a lot of varsity action this season. But the Lady
Jaguars, even when not controlling the pace, remained in the game.
After the rst quarter, Pelham led, 15-13.
Windham refused to give up. They had worked too hard over the
holiday break to start off the New Year with a defeat. As the rst half
came to a close, the Lady Jaguars had gained the 27-26 lead.
We had a really tough Christmas tournament, said Mason. But
anytime you play competition that is better than you it prepares
you for your regular season. Windham played a top Massachusetts
high school team, along with Londonderry High School, one of
the leading squads in Division I. The scores of the losses do not
show the grit displayed by the Lady Jaguars. We always look to
challenge ourselves so that we can get better in our division. Its a
good thing, said Mason.
The Lady Jaguars execution has been a big improvement,
according to Mason. From taking care of the ball to being able
to make space out on the court, Windham has continued to work
diligently to improve their execution of plays on the court.
Windham maintained a small lead throughout the third quarter,
nishing with a 41-38 advantage heading into the nal quarter. In
the fourth quarter, the Lady Jaguars did more than simply hang
on. Through perpetual pressure on defense and smart offensive
decisions, Windham began to control every aspect of the game.
With three seconds remaining in the game, senior Clairee Putnam
sealed the win with a pair of free throws. The Lady Jaguars defeated
the Pythons, 52-45.
Theres a lot of basketball left to be played, a lot of progress that
still needs to happen. We are just focusing on the progression of the
season and focusing on putting the team rst, playing hard, playing
smart and nding the depth we need to sustain foul troubles and
injuries, said Mason.
Putnam led the home team with 13 points in the game.
Sophomore Amanda Carey and freshman Casey Dinga contributed
with ten points apiece. Sophomore Hannah Klaassens and freshman
Lexi Sawyer added six points each.
With the win, Windham improves to 3-2 within the division.
The goal now for Windham is to keep getting better. The team
that usually wins the state title is the team that plays the best
fundamental basketball, said Mason. Were hoping to be one of
those teams.

invitational during a ve day period, the PHS wrestling
team is welcoming a few days away from competition.
The Pythons competed on back-to-back nights, January
7 and 8 with away meets at ConVal and Winnisquam,
respectively. They nished the week off by heading right
back towards the lakes region to compete in the annual
Winnisquam hosted winter classic on Saturday, January
10.
In making their second, near 60 mile trek north on
Interstate 93 in just three days, the Pelham wrestlers were
duly rewarded. Due to some inclement weather, several
teams were no-shows for the invitational. Nevertheless,
the Pythons nished second only to the host Bears in
the weather-altered six-team eld, while individually, they
enjoyed a plethora of top three nishes.
Taking the heavy medal back home with them on the bus by way
of going undefeated on the day and thus garnering rst place nishes
were: Jared Boyden (113, 2-0), Jason Gleason (132, 3-0) and Tom
Gleason (182, 2-0).
The Pythons also wracked-up four second place showings. In
the 126 division, Matt Koch (1-1) lost his bid for a rst place medal
when he dropped a 7-5 decision in the nals to Alex Wesosa of
Kearsarge. Chase Crawford (1-1) also lost his championship bout
in a 152 match against Christian Duquette at 3:38. Brad Kamal
continued his ne season when he went 1-1 on the day with the
only loss coming in the nals against a seasoned wrestler in Richie
Mills of Winnisquam. It was the second time in as many matches
that Kamal went up against Mills, who was a state champion two
years ago and runner-up last year. Although Kamal was also pinned
by Mills earlier in the week, Coach Bob Riddinger said of his
170-pound wrestler; He wrestled a lot better against him this time.
Also collecting a second place medal was newcomer Bryce Brown
(182, 1-1), albeit with the dubious distinction of having lost to his
own teammate, Tom Gleason in the all Python championship bout.
The only wrestler besides Jason Gleason to earn three victories
on the day was Brandon Arzauga (106), whose 3-1 mark earned
him a third place nish after beating teammate Alex Becker (fourth
place) in another all-Python championship match, this time in
the consolation bracket. In the 120 weight class, Zach Koch had
a nice day, picking up a pair of wins before losing by pin at 1:14
of his cons-nals match against Aaron Carson of Kearsarge. Cody
Thompson rounded out the Pelham third place medal winners when
he also went 1-1; losing his last match of the day against Gabe Wise
(Merrimack) at 4:14 of their 145 pound consolation nals.
Earlier in the week, the Pythons split a pair of dual meets; losing
to ConVal, 39-38 and then bouncing back the next day to defeat
Winnisquam by a 46-36 margin. Against the Cougars, Pelham got
out to a commanding 21-0 lead, but could not stand the prosperity
as their lead dwindled away and ultimately disappeared when they
suffered a late match pin that led to the team loss. Winners on the
day for Pelham were: Josh Boyden (120) with an 8-5 decision over
Andrew Hunt; Matt Koch (WBF, 1:17) over Josh Bartsch; and Brad
Kamal who routed his Cougar opponent Aaron Taylor with a 15-0
tech fall.
After a disappointing showing at Con-Val, Coach Riddinger took
a sterner look at the Winnisquam meet; We had a little bit of a
reckoning, he admitted. They didnt do enough to win the night
before, offered Riddinger and consequently, it resulted in the loss.
I had a heart to heart with them, continued the Python coach,
adding; There were some soft spots against ConVal and we needed
to toughen up. His message apparently hit home for the meet with
the Bears as they pulled out a 10-point win; It sunk in, and the kids
that needed to step up, did.
Starting the wrestling at the 195 weight class, Tom Gleason staked
the Pythons to a 6-0 lead with a win by fall at 5:34 against Dakota
Eantassel. After three consecutive losses which put them behind
in the team scoring, 6-18, Jared Boyden (113) put the Snakes back
on the winning track. Last years state champion wasted little time;
recording a WBF over Garrett Patten in just 38 seconds. In the 120
bout, Zach Koch squared up the team scoring at 18-all when he
pulled the upset over junior Logan Patten with a pin win at 1:50
of the match. That was the pivot match right there, recounted
Riddinger.
Pelham subsequently posted three wins, starting with Jason
Gleason (138). Holding a tight 2-0 lead after two periods, Gleason
exploded for eight, third period points on the way to posting a 10-0
major decision over Kyle Buldoc. Conditioning took over, noted
Riddinger of Gleasons late match burst. With the win, the Pythons
jumped in front by a 28-24 score.
Cody Thompsons WBF at 1:57 of his match with David McLelland
(145) gave the Snakes some breathing room at 34-24. The Python
lead expanded to sixteen when
Chase Crawford posted a win by
fall at 1:29 of his 152 bout with
Ed Ojikutu; He made relatively
short work of his opponent,
assessed Riddinger. Suddenly
the 40-24 lead that Crawfords
win had given Pelham
disappeared with back-to-back
losses coming in the 160 and
170 weight classes.
With Pelham clinging to a
precarious 40-36 lead and the
outcome to be decided by the
nal match, Bryce Brown came
through in the clutch. The latest
edition to the team came up big
with a WBF at 1:10 of his match
with Mike Lewis, securing the
win for the Pythons.

Your Annual Financial Checkup
W.F.Boutin EA - Total Tax Solutions LLC
I am happy to participate in The Area News Groups Maintaining
Your Piece of the Pie series once again this tax ling season. However,
since the Area News Group has started printing the Salem Patriot on a
bi-weekly schedule, there are not enough weeks to present the series
as I have in the past. This year's articles will cover specic areas of tax
law as opposed to a continuing series dissecting the income tax return.
Should certain terminology in the articles be confusing, you can visit
our web site at www.totaltxsolutions.com where there will be a series
of articles similar to prior years.
My intent remains to bring to the fore the multiple options you have
to enact informed decisions regarding your upcoming expenditures.
Hopefully helping you plan for your nancial future in these challeng-
ing times.
As I am sure you are aware by now, The IRS has announced that they
will not be accepting returns until around a Jan.28th time frame. This is
due to the government shutdown experienced in late 2013. I still urge
taxpayers who may be ready to le prior to this date to schedule a time
to have their taxes prepared. Then once the IRS does go online, you
returns will be in queue for acceptance.
At Total Tax Solutions we view the preparation of the income tax
return as a time for an annual nancial checkup. The tax laws are
complicated and confusing to many individuals. Each taxpayers
situation is unique and might change from year to year. The income tax
return itself is very complex since a minor change in one area of the
return can affect several other areas of the return. Certain transactions
that occur during the year can cost you much more than you antici-
pated. This is because of the affect an increase in total income can
have on certain deductions and credits that have phase- out limits.
Of course I would recommend that you have your taxes profession-
ally prepared so that you can: 1) ask questions pertaining to your
return: 2) understand your options to lower your taxes for the next year
and 3) have someone who you can call if a particular situation should
arise during the year. With your previous years data in our computers
we can give realistic advice instead of assumptions. Many of our
clients take advantage of this service which is included in their one
time preparation fee.
I realize that not all returns are so complicated as to require profes-
sional preparation. Self preparers however should consider having their
taxes professionally prepared at least once every 3 to 4 years. Tax
preparation software is not intelligent software. The software simply
adds and subtracts data inputs based upon answering yes and no
questions. The user cannot interact with the software by asking
questions, and must spend time reviewing tax law, to answer the
questions correctly. Having a return professionally prepared once every
fourth year gives the self preparer the opportunity to verify their
understanding of the tax laws, allows them to ask pertinent questions
pertaining to their unique situations, and most important, gives them
the peace of mind that they have fullled a nancial checkup.
Mistakes made on previous returns have a three year window for
amendment. Many mistakes that we have found over the years would
have cost taxpayers much more than a tax preparation fee. Over the
past several years many of our rst time clients had errors on prior
returns. These clients beneted from amended returns with refunds of
$250 to $3000 because they decided to have their returns prepared
professionally. However, the errors found were not only from self
prepared returns but returns prepared for fees as well. In many cases
these errors were not only from an interpretation of tax law but from
inexperience. When having your tax returns professionally prepared,
do not hesitate to ask for references and question the experience of
your tax preparer.
About Total Tax Solutions: W.F. Boutin EA registered Total Tax
Solutions in the State of NH as a LLC in the summer of 2006 after
10 years experience working for a major tax preparation company
and 8 years of teaching various tax courses. The company mission
is to deliver an excellent customer service experience year around,
to offer knowledgeable advice so that clients can make informed
decisions regarding their nancial future, and to provide this
service with integrity, condence and professionalism.

donuts and coffee as well.
Its a lot of fun just seeing the children enjoy the game, the books
and the crafts, said Grenda.
Each Daddy and Donuts event includes storytime and a craft that
goes along with a specic theme. The attendance averages eight
children for each event. The age range is mostly two to ve-year-olds;
however, all ages are welcome.
Its great for the kids. It gets them interested in projects and away

Getting to Know Mr. Kaplan
by Jillian DiPersio, Windham High School Intern
Mr. Ryan Kaplan began working as Windham High Schools
principal on July 1, 2013 and since has dived head-rst into the
schools culture, working tirelessly to help the staff achieve their
goals and to achieve his own personal aims as well.
The schools rst target for this year was student engagement and
success. We have very high student engagement to begin with,
says Kaplan. There are upwards of 86 percent of students involved
in athletics and extracurriculars. But we want [that percentage
to be] even higher. Kaplan says that since the beginning of the
school year more extracurricular activities, clubs and activities have
started up and there have been many opportunities for students to
get involved. We are certainly maintaining and, I would argue,
providing more opportunities for students to engage in something at
Windham High School.
The second school goal was to create a personalized common
experience, says Kaplan. We want teachers to get to know
you on a personal level so they can best teach you, explains
Kaplan. However, the school also wants students to have the same
opportunities and receive the same information as students in other
sections of the same subject. Kaplan says that this goal will take
more time to achieve, as it requires some changes in curriculum.
With midterm exams right around the corner more teachers are
having parts of their assessments be consistent throughout sections
of the same class in order to ensure all students are being taught the
same material.
The staff at WHS is also working towards reaccreditation through
the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
This year is our self study so were doing a signicant amount of
work as a staff putting together all of our NEASC documents. All
these documents must be completed by mid-March and Kaplan says
everyone is right on schedule.
Mr. Kaplans personal goals for the school are also moving right
along and he is looking forward to second semester. Once the
year started I hit the ground running full-speed. And I havent
stopped, he says. What struck him most about Windham High is
the highly motivated staff. I have more and more teachers coming
in to me asking, Mr. Kaplan, what do you think of this idea? He
comments that between the achievements in athletics, music, art
and science extracurricular activities, he has seen rsthand that
when students see such highly motivated teachers, teachers who
are so passionate about their craft students rise to the occasion.
Kaplan explains that, Where I come in as the principal is to
support, nurture, nourish and give all the right ingredients for these
things to continue.
His major goal for second semester is to get out of his ofce and
into the hallways, the classrooms and the community. I dont just
want to know names, I want to know students, he says. I work
hard to maintain that small school feel I want to really work
hard in the second semester to know more students individually.
This aligns with the schools goal of a personalized common
experience, Mr. Kaplan says, adding, I hold myself accountable to
the same expectation.
Not only does he want to get to know students but he also looks
forward to fostering relationships with parents and professionals in
the community. I think its important that I get around and people
see me as a representative of Windham High School and see an
open door of communication, he explains.
As the year continues and the school moves into second semester,
Mr. Kaplan and the staff at WHS will continue to work towards
these goals. Ive been in so many meetings here; I just want to
get out there more. Kaplan concludes, Its whats happening in
classes every day that make Windham High School great.

Avoiding Footwear Fumbles
When Exercising or Playing Sports
(BPT) - No one disputes that exercise
provides a host of health benets, from
helping control weight to improving
cardiovascular functions. But exercis-
ing in the wrong footwear can cause
more harm than good, especially since
foot health is integral to overall well-
being.
To get the most out of your workout
or from playing a favorite sport, its
imperative to choose the right footwear
for the type of exercise youll engage
in, says Dr. Matthew Garoufalis, a po-
diatrist and president of the American
Podiatric Medical Association (APMA).
Improper footwear can lead to irrita-
tion and injury.
Foot or ankle sprains and fractures
are the most common types of injuries
related to exercise and footwear. The
type of exercise or sport you prefer can
inuence the type of injury you could
experience. In general for example,
foot and ankle sprains and fractures
are more common among football
players, while basketball players
may suffer more ankle sprains and
runners experience stress fractures
to feet or ankles.
APMA offers some guidance
on how to avoid foot injury while
exercising:
* Always warm up before ex-
ercise. Just as you stretch
to warm up leg and arm
muscles, your feet need to
warm up gradually too.
* If you experience foot
pain while exercising or
engaging in physical activ-
ity, stop immediately. Foot
pain is not normal and you
shouldnt feel any when
you exercise. If pain persists
even after you stop your
workout, see a podiatrist.
* Always wear supportive
shoes that are appropriate for
the type of physical activity
youre engaging in.
Choosing the right footwear
can help ensure you minimize
the risk of injury and enjoy a
more productive and comfort-
able workout. When choosing
workout or sports footwear,
keep these pointers in mind:
* Choose a running shoe
based on your foot type: low/
at arch, normal arch or high
arch. You can nd a graphic of
what each foot type looks like
on the APMA website. If you
have a low or no arch, you need
a supportive shoe designed for
stability and motion-control. Normal
arched feet require a shoe with a bal-
ance of stability and cushioning to help
absorb shock when your feet meet the
ground. For people with high arches, a
cushioned running shoe with a softer
midsole and more exibility compen-
sates for the poor natural shock absorp-
tion of the higher arch.
* Also take into account the kind of
activity youll do. Runners need more
arch support and cushioning to absorb
impact. Basketball players require extra
ankle support to prevent injury from
side-to-side movement - which is why
basketball shoes come up over the
ankles.
* Dont go it alone when youre
shopping for a workout or sports shoe.
Go to a store that specializes in athletic
footwear and ask to be professionally
tted before you buy. Shoes should t
comfortably as soon as you try them
on; never assume youll break in
an uncomfortable athletic shoe. Shop
toward the end of the day, when feet
are at their largest due to normal daily
swelling.
* Whatever your exercise or sport of
choice, your athletic shoes should offer
plenty of support in the front and back.
Finally, when athletic shoes begin
to show signs of wearing out, its time
to replace them. Examine the tread,
especially around mid-sole. Generally,
you should replace athletic shoes every
year, and running shoes every 300 to
400 miles.

The No-Fail Solution for Keeping Healthy-Eating Resolutions
(BPT) - New Years resolutions are good things
- unless you set yourself up for failure with grand,
ultimately unachievable goals. Rather than
frustrate yourself with overwhelming changes, try
making smaller ones that will positively impact
your life and encourage other healthier decisions
throughout the year.
Sticking to your New Years resolutions doesnt
mean that you cant continue to take pleasure
in the joys of the season. Its OK to indulge in a
sweet treat every now and again - even if you
promised that you would steer clear of those
baked confections in the new year. Simply lighten
up the recipe with a few key substitutions, such
as replacing fatty shortening, margarine or butter
with olive oil.
Small substitutions are easy to do and make a
noticeable difference. By replacing 1 cup of butter
with 3/4 cup of olive oil, you will save approxi-
mately 430 calories and 48 grams of fat calories.
You wont have to hesitate to treat family and
friends to warm, rich baked goods because they
have fewer calories and more nutritional value.
You wont feel like you have lost sight of your
goals either.
You can use olive oil in any of your favorite old
family dessert recipes or try Chef Fabio Vivianis
delectable double chocolate trufe cookie or deli-
cious olive oil cake recipe. Next time you need to
make a sweet treat for an event or special occa-
sion, give olive oil a chance. You may be surprised
at how wonderfully a simple change can make a
big difference.
As you are breaking out the
stand mixer and baking pans
this year, consider replacing
cholesterol-laden butter, canola
oil, or shortening with Bertolli
Extra Light Tasting Olive Oil.
The light avor of this olive oil is
virtually undetectable and will
not compete with the sweetness
of your secret cookies, brownies
or cakes recipes. Bertolli Extra
Light Tasting Olive Oil doesnt
have the distinct olive avor that
other olive oils have, making it
ideal for baking. You wont have to worry about
serving a dry dessert, because olive oil will help
to keep your familys favorite dessert recipes moist
down to the last crumb.
Making the switch is a smart option for your
new years resolution and your health. Olive oil is
a heart-healthy monounsaturated fat that is rich in
vitamin E and antioxidants that help protect your
cells from damage.
For more recipes using Bertolli Extra Light Tast-
ing Olive Oil in your baked goods, visit www.
VillaBertolli.com.

1 teaspoon sea salt and extra for sprinkling
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup toffee bits or chocolate toffee

Thumbs Up? Thumbs Down? Thumbs Up? Thumbs Down?
Thumbs up. Thanks to the caring Pelham
residents who have applied for public and private
grants to help our town. Grants are a difcult to
obtain, your efforts are very much appreciated.
Thumbs up to Liz in Pelham and the students
from Fellowship Christian Academy. Liz
generously donated eece from
her shop to help the students
make over 15 blankets for the
homeless. Great job by all.
Thumbs up to the televised
budget committee meeting to
vote on a new three-tiered tax-
paying program. The non-tax
payers in Pelham are growing,
and unless this new tax-
monitoring system is enforced,
this tax scam will continue to
grow. I, being a tax-payer, know
of two residents a stone throw
away from my front door, who
participate and abuse this free-
tax lifestyle. One, with an elder
resident, has abandoned her
property, living out of state 2-3
years ago, with her local and
younger children still riding this
free ride, and Im sure hoping to
ride it forever. I have and will
support to pay my tax share, and
for those individuals, who are
honestly eligible and deserving,
vote this new three-tiered tax
program in. Lets get rid of the
dead weight.
Thumbs up to Russ Wood at Woodys Auto
for his thoughtful act of kindness in not charging
my nephew, Bryan Hughgill (recently home from
Afghanistan) for services provided. We, his family
thank you. God Bless and thank you to all of our
Troops.
Thumbs up to the PHS
Addition/Remodel project! It
looks great. Not voting equals
a no vote. Thanks for voting.
Thumbs up to the Spotlight
on Special Ed night scheduled
to be held on February 20th
at the Pelham Elementary
school. Its so nice to see the
collaboration between, Special
Ed, School Administration and
Parents from our community
working together to put on such
a great event. Keep up the
good work!
Thumbs down to the
Windham Chief of Police, Gerry
Lewis. Hes simply buying
his time here until he retires. In the meantime
discriminating against town residents and making
emotional decisions based on who he likes and
dislikes as opposed to upholding the state laws.
His is compromising the safety of the families and
children that live in the very town he has been
hired to protect and serve. The Town Selectmen
should be ashamed of such poor representation!
Thumbs down. Big thumbs down to the
couple in Windham who have left the state for
several months parking their vehicle on a Right
of Way that is accessed by emergency vehicles to
get to residents. You have gone too far and should
be nothing but embarrassed about your childish
behavior.

Ayotte: Pentagon Confrms Budget Deal Also Cuts Survivor Benefts
and Combat-Related Special Compensation
In response to Ayottes questions, Defense Department confrms COLA cuts to additional military beneft programs
submitted by the Ofce of U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte
U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) announced on January 13 that
she has received conrmation from the Defense Department (DoD)
that in addition to reducing the cost of living adjustment (COLA) for
military retirees (including those medically retired due to injuries),
the budget agreement that Congress passed last month would also
reduce the COLA for Survivor Benet Plans (SBP) (often for military
widows), as well as Concurrent Retired and Disability Pay (CRDP)
and Combat-Related Special Compensation (CRSC). This means
the budget agreement will not only reduce the retirement COLA
for non-disabled retirees and disabled retirees receiving a medical
retirement, frequently due to injuries sustained in combat, but it will
also reduce the COLA for survivors under the SBP and for service
members injured in combat under the CRSC program.
The more I press the pentagon for answers, the more I learn how
egregious the military benet cuts are in the budget deal. The cost of
living adjustment cuts unfairly shortchange military retirees, military
survivors and the combat-injured to pay for more Washington
spending, said Senator Ayotte, a member of the Armed Services
Committee. Those who have kept us safe and taken bullets for us
shouldnt be singled out to sacrice even more and these cuts should
never have been put in the budget agreement or passed by Congress.
I am continuing my efforts to immediately right this wrong and to
ensure our military retirees, survivors and combat-wounded receive
the full benets theyve earned.
Based on Senator Ayottes questions, the Defense Department has
conrmed that the CRDP, CRSC and SBP programs are affected by
the annual COLA reduction. The DoD response said, The reduction
can be greatest for disability retirees since many begin receiving
retired pay well before the usual military retirement age.
The Survivor Benet Plan (SBP) is an annuity plan that allows
eligible beneciaries (commonly the spouse of the service member)
to receive 55 percent of the retirees elected amount of coverage.
On the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) website, an
advantage of the SBP that is listed is that it is ination indexed, yet
the COLA reduction in the budget agreement would undercut that
advantage. According to DoDs response to Senator Ayotte, 18,741
SBP annuitants are impacted.
Combat-Related Special Compensation (CRSC) is a program that
was created for disability and non-disability military retirees with
combat-related disabilities. Those who qualify for this benet must
be rated at least 10 percent disabled by the Department of Veterans
Affairs (VA) and meet certain other criteria. According to DFAS,
this compensation is for those injured as a direct result of armed
conict, hazardous duty, an instrumentality of war, [or] simulated
war.
Concurrent Retirement and Disability Pay (CRDP) allows military
retirees to receive both military retired pay and VA compensation.
Service members whose injuries result in a VA disability rating of 50
percent or greater are entitled to CRDP.
Senator Ayotte introduced legislation in December the Keeping
Our Promise to Our Military Heroes Act (S. 1869) that repeals the
harmful Cost of Living Allowance reduction for military retirees that
was included in the recent budget agreement that Congress passed
last month (which Ayotte opposed). Ayottes proposal would repeal
and replace the military retiree benet cuts by stopping a scheme
that currently allows illegal immigrants to claim the additional child
tax credit which currently costs taxpayers billions.

Does Beneft the Public
January is National Stalking
Awareness Month
submitted by New Hampshire Coalition Against
Domestic and Sexual Violence
Stalking is a criminal offense under the laws of all
50 states, including New Hampshire. Although its
prevalence is high, public awareness that stalking
is a crime remains dangerously low. Here in New
Hampshire 598 women and 108 men sought services
as stalking victims in 2012, but we know there are
many more people in our state who need help. The
Center for Disease Controls 2011 National Intimate
Partner and Sexual Violence Survey estimates that
that there are approximately 84,000 New Hampshire
women who have been stalked in the course of their
lifetime.
Many people dont consider themselves victims
because for them the word stalking often conjures
up images of a stranger lurking in the dark. The
truth is that 77 percent of female victims and 64
percent of male victims know their stalkers. Many
victims do not realize that stalking is a crime and
that in New Hampshire there are laws to protect
them. A person commits the crime of stalking when
one Purposely, knowingly, or recklessly engages
in a course of conduct targeted at a specic person
which would cause a reasonable person to fear for
his or her personal safety or the safety of a member
of that persons immediate family. In todays high
tech world, stalkers have taken their activities
to a whole new level through easily available
cell phone tracking apps, computer monitoring
software, camera surveillance and other spyware
applications.
Stalkers can be very dangerous and we
encourage victims to take the crime seriously.
Victims should document everything related to
the stalking, contact law enforcement, plan for
safety and nd emotional support. Advocates at
the fourteen member programs of the coalition
are available day or night to provide support,
information and safety planning for victims of
stalking. New Hampshires statewide hotlines
are 1-866-644-3574 for domestic violence, and
1-800-277-5570 for sexual assault.
Stalking Facts:
According to the CDC An estimated 15.9
percent or 84,000 New Hampshire women have
been stalked over the course of their lifetime.
[1]
6.6 million people are stalked in one year
in the United States. [1]
One in 6 women (16.2%) and 1 in 19 men
(5.2%) in the United States have experienced
stalking victimization at some point during
their lifetime in which they felt very fearful or
believed that they or someone close to them
would be harmed or killed.[1]
A stalker isnt always a stranger. The stalker
may be a current or former intimate partner, a
friend, customer, coworker or an acquaintance.
77 percent of female victims and 64 percent of
male victims know their stalkers.[1]
More than half of female victims and more than
1/3 of male victims of stalking indicated that
they were stalked before the age of 25. [1]
76 percent of intimate partner femicide victims
have been stalked by their intimate partner. [2]
11 percent of stalking victims have been stalked
for 5 years or more. [3]
1 in 8 employed stalking victims lose time from
work as a result of their victimization and more
than half lose ve days of work or more. [4]
The prevalence of anxiety, insomnia, social
dysfunction, and severe depression is much
higher among stalking victims than the general
population, especially if the stalking involves
being followed or having ones property
destroyed. [4]
In 2011, 1,624 stalking protective order petitions
(cases) were led in New Hampshire. [5]

Fatality Review Committee, Ninth Report, October
2012
submitted by State Fire Marshal
J. William Degnan
As 2013 comes to a close and a new year
has begun, says, J. William Degnan, New
Hampshire State Fire Marshal, it is important
to take the time to reect on the efforts and
benets of re and life safety public education.
What we know:
Fire prevention education saves lives, pain
and suffering and dollars. Even when there
are no injuries or deaths, it can take years
to recover from a re. The loss of a home,
possessions and family treasures can haunt
people, particularly children, for the rest of
their lives. However, there are many aspects of
prevention where you wont see the impact of
loss prevention overnight, but within just a few
years the benets can be rewarding.
The public education section of the re
marshals ofce has worked hard to increase
awareness and educate the public with the
ultimate goal of changing the behaviors from
a complacent attitude to being more diligent
in their daily lives. Through statewide school
newsletters, poster contests, and attendance
at state and local events, the educators have
reached hundreds of children with key safety
messages. I often hear from parents, If it
werent for my child reminding me to test our
smoke alarms and prepare and practice an
escape plan, we wouldnt do it! states Marshal
Degnan. He said, People get busy with the
everyday routines of life and put aside the
important practices for living safely.
2013 has been a record year in New
Hampshire with low accidental re deaths.
We normally experience a dozen or more re
fatalities in our state, Degnan said, but this
year we only had four accidental re deaths.
In New Hampshire each year re departments
respond to an average of 130,000 calls of which
approximately 4,500 are res resulting in an
average of $30 million of loss and the loss of
precious lives. 2013 also resulted in a dramatic
drop in accidental carbon monoxide poisonings
with just two accidental deaths.
We are beginning to see results of the efforts
in education on that of the FMO as well as the
New Hampshire local re departments.

After further discussion, however, it was determined
that it would not be a good idea to proceed with road
improvements without rst knowing where a future addition
might be placed.
School board member Michelle Farrell said she, too,
puts teachers way above facilities. Farrell also said shes
not convinced that the latest proposal is the right solution.
It hasnt even been vetted to the public, yet, Farrell
said. Joanis agreed with Farrells comment, noting that the
decision has dragged to the 11th hour. Im not ready to
make a decision on a $16 million dollar project that we just
received, at noontime today, Rekart said. School board
Vice Chair Stephanie Wimmer did not attend the meeting
on January 7, nor was her opinion on the issue discussed at
any point during the evening.
Senibaldi continued to emphasize his opinion, however,
saying that he believes the proposal for a middle school
addition was well-thought out and well planned. To
do nothing will hurt the district in the long run, he said.
This is going to create a credibility issue, Senibaldi said,
referring to the opinion voters will have of the school board.
Becoming increasingly aggravated, Senibaldi placed the
blame for the school districts current dilemma on the last
two school boards. Senibaldi also said hes had enough
of serving on facility committees and has no intention of
serving on any similar committee in the future. Im not
going to waste my time, he said.
School board members took no actual vote on the
proposed addition to Windham Middle School. The
proposal died for lack of any action and will not be placed
on the ballot this coming March.

available and used during the appropriate times. His coat was thick and enough to
handle winter, continued Barrett. The only times he would need the blanket was
at times he was inactive or sick, which was almost never.
Pelhams Animal Control Ofcer Allison Caprigno issued a citation on one of the
neighbors who chose to step in and begin feeding Rusty. Barrett is properly feeding
Rusty. This is a senior horse with a sensitive system. It can be very dangerous to
mess with his diet, especially in the wintertime. As previously reported by the
Union Leader, Caprigno stressed that no abuse charges have been led against
Barrett and that Rustys appearance is typical of a horse his age.
Having read of Rustys plight, Kaitlyn Morrill of Sunset View Stables stepped up
to the plate and offered Rusty the opportunity to live out his days at her retirement
home for horses.
Sunset View Stables is on 63 acres with a natural pond and trails for walking,
hunting and horses.
The day after Rustys departure, Barrett commented, I am very happy for Rusty.
He has already made a new friend with a horse who lives on the Sunset View
property. I am thankful to Pelhams Animal Control Ofcer, Allison Caprigno for her
help.
Morrill said shell be posting updates on Rustys progress in his new home via the
farms Facebook page, www.facebook.com/sunsetviewstables.

Emotions at fever pitch levels lled the Pelham
High gymnasium when the Pelham boys basketball
team hosted nearby rival Windham on Friday,
January 11, in the highly anticipated Division II
matchup. The Jaguars strutted into Pelham, owners
of an unblemished 4-0 mark and tied for rst place
with Pembroke and Plymouth. With standing
room only conditions prevailing inside the Snake
Pit, the Pythons used a career performance from
junior Ryan Cloutier along with key third quarter
long range sharpshooting from sophomore Keith
Brown to upend Windham in convincing fashion,
68-52.
Earlier in the week, Pelham was involved in
back to back blowouts. On Tuesday, January 7,
the team traveled to Lebanon where they faced the
Raiders, who were lying in wait, and proceeded
to deliver a 69-49 thumping to the unsuspecting
Snakes. However, on the following evening,
Pelham chalked one up in the restitution column;
albeit taking their frustrations out on lowly ConVal.
The Cougars (0-3) stayed with the Snakes for the
rst quarter, but Jake Vaiknoras (11) and Keith
Brown (7) dumped-in 18 of Pelhams 28 points
in a second quarter eruption on the way to a 76-
47 victory. Brown nished with a team-high 17,
Vaiknoras had 15 and Ryan Cloutier rounded
out three Python players scoring in double digits,
chipping in with ten. The game also featured
freshman Kyle Frank scoring his rst varsity points;
going 3 for 4 from the charity stripe in the waning
moments of the game.
On January 10, the overow of cars from the
PHS parking lot lined Marsh Road as spectators
lled the gym to witness a key, early season battle
between two teams that expect to make a run at
the state title.
Pelhams Cloutier and Windhams Tucker
Lippold opened the portal to a night lled
with trifectas; exchanging three pointers which
produced a 5-4 Pelham lead in an action packed
rst 75 seconds. In contrasting fashion, both
teams went scoreless for the next 79 seconds
until Cloutier snapped that drought with his
second triple, putting the Snakes up 8-4 with 5:26
showing on the clock. With 2:41 remaining, a
pull-up jumper by Mike Pelletier gave his team
a 13-11, but the Jags would own the rest of the
opening frame. Andrew Lowman continued to
assert himself in the offensive paint, scoring 7 of
his team high 20 points as Windham closed out
the quarter on a 6-0 run to take a 16-13 lead into
the second stanza.
The Jags made it eight straight points on a
step-back jumper from Lippold, inspired by a
great defensive sequence that saw Lowman and
company consecutively reject three of Browns
attempts in the paint. The Python sophomore
came right back however, muscling his way back
into the paint and coming away with an old
fashion three, making the score 18-16 in favor of
Windham. With 4:21 on the clock, a Slattery triple
inched the Pythons closer at 20-19.
Moments later, Cloutier continued his long
range prowess, draining his third tres of the half
and tying the score at 22 apiece, causing WHS to
take a time out while simultaneously prompting
the PHS student body to chant, This is our house.
With rst half success of lighting up his defender
from the perimeter already established, Cloutier
then showed his versatility; taking his 6 foot 4 inch
frame to the hole via the baseline for two more,
tying the score again at 24-24.
With 51 seconds showing on the clock, Cloutier
remained in the zone as he rained-in his fourth
trifecta of the half; putting the Snakes on top for
good at 29-28. Back to back offensive charging
calls against the Jags caused the Python student fan
base to go wild and the Python players responded.
In a frantic nal 30 seconds, the Pythons posted
a quarter-closing 7-2 run. A Dylan Silvestri steal
and pass to Cloutier for an easy lay in followed by
a buzzer-beating and acrobatic offensive rebound
put-back off the glass by Ryan Frank sparked
Pelham to a 33-28 halftime advantage.
He kept us in the game, exclaimed Coach
Matt Regan of Cloutiers instant gravitation to
greatness, via his 18 point rst half performance.
Regan continued the assessment of his centers
dominant rst half which saw him make 4 of 5
from behind the arch as well as score three hoops
in the paint, saying; He was attacking the basket
and feeling good about himself.
The Pythons came out of the locker room on
re; scoring the rst nine points of the second
half. Ryan Frank got things started with a nice
12 footer from the right side. Then, with 6:50 on
the clock, Downtown Brown launched a missile
from a different zip code as his triple increased
the Pelham lead to double digits, at 38-28, forcing
Windham head coach Todd Steffanides to call a
much needed time-out.
The pause in play was of little consolation to
the Jags as Pelham proceeded to add to its lead.
Brown made two of three from the stripe after
being fouled on a three-point attempt and then
nished off a strong offensive rebound with two
more for a 44-30 lead. In the ensuing moments,
the Pythons received a pair of nice plays from
Vaiknoras. The Pelham tri-captain fed a nifty
interior bounce pass to Silvestri in the paint for a
pair and then followed that up with a steal and
lay in that gave the Snakes a commanding 48-32
bulge with 3:45 left in the third.
Showing signs of life, the Jags clawed back with
four unanswered, and after a Lowman steal and
bank shot, found themselves back in the game, at
48-36. But Zach Conway nailed a clutch triple as
the clock ticked under the 3:00 mark; Conways
three was one of the biggest shots of the game,
reected Regan of its ability to put the Windham
comeback on hold.
In the nal 68 seconds of the quarter, the
comeback bid went from on hold to non-
existent thanks to the ubiquitous twine-tickling
performance from Brown. Showing no love for his
Jaguar opposition, Brown shredded his defenders
for two more trifectas; the second of which coming
from in front of the PHS fans section. His scoring
came alive in the third, which shows you how
dynamic he can be, noted Regan of Browns
ability to take control of the game at any given
moment. The long range dagger with just seconds
showing on the clock gave the Snakes a 60-43
lead and inspired the student body to collectively
and assertively bid adieu to their guests; Leave
the Snake Pit.
The Pythons were led in scoring by Cloutier with
22 (four triples) and Brown with 17 (three tres,
all in the third quarter). Jake Vaiknoras had a solid
all-around game, scoring 11 while Joe Slattery
chipped in with seven at the point guard position.
After the game, Regan admitted that the
Windham 3-2 zone early in the contest was
causing some issues. We werent running our
offense effectively, noted the Python coach,
adding; we had to make it a transition game
defensively, and we did that. Despite the margin
of victory, Regan was quick to offer praise for his
opponents; Windham is an outstanding team and
well coached. The shots werent falling for them
in the second half but they kept battling. While
enjoying the win at home, Regan is well aware of
the Jaguar talent and expects another tough battle
to ensue when the two teams meet again later in
the season on Windhams home court.
Pelhams Ryan Cloutier takes it to the hole for two of his
game high 22 points in the win over the Jaguars.

Lady Pythons Hoops Continue Slide
by Marc Ayotte
The Pelham girls basketball teams perplexing
and precipitous early season free fall continued
this past week when they lost three games;
dropping their record to 0-6 and thereby
solidifying their hold on last place in the Division
II standings.
With an abundance of individual talent running
the gambit from promising freshmen to the
experience of three seniors, the Lady Pythons
simply have not jelled as a cohesive unit and the
results are sad reminders of that fact. In Pelhams
most recent home game against arguably a solid
opponent in Lebanon, the Pythons were once
again late in answering the bell.
The visiting Raiders jumped out to an 8-2
lead and it wasnt until Lilly Shlimons trifecta
with 1:55 left in the quarter making it 16-6 that
any semblance of life was seen in the blue and
white. With a combination of transition lay ups
and various other means of points in the paint,
the Raiders ran their way to a 20-8 rst quarter
lead. The second quarter was a near carbon copy
as Lebanon continued to run past the Python
defenders; entering the lane at will through a
matador defense that allowed them to outscore
Pelham by eleven, and build a commanding 41-18
lead heading into the intermission.
Lebanons lead mushroomed to 44-18 just 20
seconds into the second half when Heather King
(game high 22 points) registered an old fashion
three pointer after a strong move in the lane.
Ahead 44-20, the Raiders proceeded to go on an
11-0 run before Shlimon stopped the bleeding
with her second tres of the night, making the
score 53-20 as Lebanon (3-2) coasted in for the
64-45 win. High scorer for the Pythons was
freshman Lilly Shlimon with 13, followed by long
range specialist Hannah Paitchel who connected
on three triples in posting 11 points, while Lauren
Anderson chipped in with four.
On a positive note, the Pythons defense has
recently turned it up a notch. Having yielded a
lofty 67 plus points per game in its rst four losses,
Pelham, who has consistently scored between 42-
49 points each game, has improved its defensive
effort. While allowing just 55 and 54 points in the
respective losses on the road against ConVal and
Windham, the Pythons decreased the margin of
defeat to a manageable eight points per game
translation: they are staying in the games for longer
periods of time. Still, an unwelcomed consolation
considering the talent the team possesses. A
mystied Coach Bob Shepard summed things up
succinctly; They have to learn their roles.
Against the rival Jaguars, Pelham played its
best game of the season as a team, according to
Shepard. And to the coachs point of knowing
ones role, one player in particular played her
role admirably. Lauren Anderson was assigned
the unenviable task of covering the Jags all-state
guard, Clairee Putnam. She did a fantastic job
on covering her, noted Shepard. Anderson held
Putnam to 13 points on the night; a key reason
why the Pythons trailed by only one at the half
and were still in a one possession game heading
into the nal frame. But the Jags proved to be too
much down the stretch as they inched their way to
a 54-48 win.
Offensively, Pelham received double-digit
performances from Jordan Parece (15, tres),
Katelyn Surprenant (11) and Hannah Paitchel, who
drained a pair from behind the arch leading to her
10 points. Elissa Mogauro and Lilly Shlimon each
contributed with triples, giving the Pythons ve on
the night, while the Pelham defense held the Jags
scoreless from three point land.
Earlier in the week, Pelham turned a 20-20
halftime tie into a host ConVal run away; allowing
18 points in the third period which proved to be
the Cougar impetus in recording a 55-45 win.
Senior Jordan Parece led the Pelham offense with
14 points while
Schlimon
continued her
ne offense
play with 12
points.
After playing
ve of its rst
six games on
the road, the
Lady Pythons
will be back
in the Snake
Pit against
Goffstown, on
Friday, January
17.
Freshman Lilly Shlimon knocked-down a pair of tres in
leading the Pythons with 13 points versus Lebanon.

The Jaguars are relentless. Head Coach Tom Darrin, who has
coached the sport for over 40 years, instills in his athletes a passion
to improve that has proved greatly successful throughout his storied
career.
The Windham High School Wrestling team welcomed the New Year
by hosting White Mountain, Reading and Nashua South High Schools
in a quad-meet on Saturday, January 11.
Were really looking to prepare for the end of the year. Thats the
key. Hopefully, well keep getting better and better,
said Darrin.
The Jaguars have done just that so far this
season. Within Division III, Windham is just about
unstoppable. They continually battle higher divisions
and strong teams as a way to push each wrestler to
improve. Windham scored an impressive win over
Nashua North High School, a top-ranked Division I
squad, and nearly upset Bedford High School, one of
the premiere teams in Division II, this season.
I feel like were being pretty competitive but we
still havent put it all together yet. We still need to
keep working to get it all together, said Darrin.
In the opening meet of the day, Windham wrestled
a depleted White Mountain team. Competitors from
both teams wrestled impressive exhibition bouts. In
one of them, Windhams Gui Gauthier pinned his
opponent in just over a minute.
Gui Gauthier, a senior, has really come through
this year, said Darrin. Our top wrestler is Tyler
Siverhus, who has wrestled really well.
The Jaguars defeated White Mountain, 21-6, as
the home team won three of four matches. At 113
pounds, Peter Caron pinned Emily Cook. Devin
Marino, at 120 pounds, lost to Liam Hayden by
pin fall after leading for most of the match. At 145
pounds, Siverhus stuck Jared Cape in a minute and a
half to continue his dominance this season. Finally,
at 152 pounds, Reed Wentworth held on to score a
4-2 decision victory over Frances Gesee.
In the next meet, the Jaguars wrestled Division
Is Nashua South High School. Marino redeemed
himself for the day with a dominant, 14-0 major
decision victory. Justin Missert, at 132 pounds,
pinned his Nashua South opponent. Both Gauthier
and Siverhus recorded pin fall victories in the meet.
Windhams wins, combined with a number of
Nashua South forfeits, led to the Jaguars second team
win of the day, 46-28.
We need to improve with
our chain wrestling; uid,
from one move to another
to another. We wrestled
decently, but we are not
putting the moves together
well enough, said Darrin.
In the nal meet of
the afternoon, Windham
squared off against a tough
Reading High School
(Massachusetts) squad. In
the 106-pound weight class,
Windhams Sam Cavallaro
stuck his opponent in
just nineteen seconds.
Missert, at 132 pounds, and
Siverhus, at 145 pounds,
claimed wins by pin in the
meet for the Jaguars. Kody
Folsom, at 220 pounds,
scored a gritty, 4-0 win
over his Reading opponent.
However, Windham could
not wrap up their day
undefeated because they
lost to Reading, 35-33. The
meet was decided when
Readings heavyweight
scored a close decision win
to secure Windhams defeat.
Despite the out-of-state
loss, Windham improves
to 4-0 within Division III
and 6-2 overall as a team.
We are doing well, said
Darrin. But Id always like
to see us do a little better.
Regardless of the results,
Windham will remain relentless in their pursuit of another Division
III title.
The Jaguars do not only excel on the mat, but in the community
as well. Just before holiday break, the squad worked together to
provide gifts for the residents of Windham through the Holiday
Wish Tree. The team has shown great character not only by being
tough on the mat but being classy, caring young men off the mat,
said Assistant Coach Jack Byrne. They really are awesome guys
and we are very lucky.

The Pelham High School swimmers continued their push
towards the season ending state tournament with a multi-
team meet at the Workout Club in Salem on January 5. At
the Windham High home meet, the Jaguars recognized
seniors of the competing teams. The Pythons had three
senior swimmers competing on the day: Zach Johnson, Jay
Fenderlander and Emily Lamport. Among the events the
three competed in, Lamport took her seedtime of 1:34.46
into the 100-yard backstroke, while Fenderlander and
Johnson were part of the boys team that swam in the 200-
yard medley relay.
Elsewhere for the Pythons, Jared Hannon grabbed
a pair of rst place nishes. Hannon qualied for the
aforementioned states with a best of showing in the 50
freestyle with a time of 25.51. He also captured rst in the
100 freestyle with a time of 57.87; making it the second of
his two qualifying events.
Also swimming well for the boys was Glenn Leuteritz;
garnering a fourth place nish in the 200 freestyle, while
Jay Fenderlander recorded a personal best in the 100
buttery.
On the ladies side of the ledger, Olivia Parks
captured fourth place in the 50-yard freestyle
with a time of 30.36, just .41 seconds off her
seedtime of 29.95. And Abby Gagnon, who
is an up and coming freshman, posted a time
of 1:09.87 in the 100 freestyle. The time was
the second fastest for the Python ladies in that
event.

The Pack started its week in convincing fashion
sparked by a pair of hat-trick performances from
Dustin Lubinger and Bryce Blanchard as they
levied an 8-1 thumping on Timberlane on neutral
ice. With the win, W-P improved to 4-1, setting
the stage for a showdown against the Green Wave
that brought an identical win-loss mark with them
from the seacoast. Unfortunately for the Pack, a
pair of Dover third period goals proved to be the
difference as they slid by Pelham-Windham by a
4-2 score.
On January 8, at the Icenter in Salem, which
serves as the home sheet for both the Owls and
Pack, the 1-4 Timberlane squad came out strong,
and at 3:17 of the opening period, grabbed a
surprising 1-0 lead on a goal from James Perry. It
wasnt long before the Pack righted the ship as
they knotted the score at one apiece on a goal
from Chad Desautels (eighth of the year) at the
8:02 mark, with assists going to Lubinger and
Bobby Haverty. At 10:14, Lubinger lit the red light
with his rst goal of the evening. After being sent
in alone on a nice feed from Blanchard, D-Lube
red a wrist shot that beat Owl goalie Aaron Smith
on the short side with what turned out to be the
winning goal. Closing out the rst period scoring
with 2:07 remaining was Lubinger; beating Smith
high, glove side after Desautels won the faceoff in
the attacking zone.
The oodgates remained opened in the
middle period. The controls were manned
single-handedly by Blanchard, who scored
two unassisted goals, leading the Pack to a
commanding 5-1 lead after two periods. With
less than three minutes expired in the nal frame,
Lubinger became the rst Pack skater to record
a hat trick on the night when he beat the Owl
net minder for his team-leading 13th goal of the
campaign and a 6-1 cushion.
The Pack then received an additional
contribution to its already lethal scoring arsenal
when sophomore Dom Bruzzese notched his rst
ever varsity goal at the 7:25 mark, increasing the
W-P advantage to 7-1. Despite his two-middle
period tallies, W-Ps Blanchard
had been snake bit early in the
season by opposing goalies
seemingly making stellar saves
on him. But recently, the
sophomores persistence has
been rewarded. With 2:20 left
in the contest, Blanchard (7G,
9A) completed his quest for
the trick when he scored on
an assist from Porter Carelli,
producing the 8-1 nal.
In somewhat of a surprise
move, freshman Christian Bassi
received the start in goal from
Coach Jerry Manchester. The
rst year Pack head coach
backed up his decision saying
hes (Bassi) been practicing
well and he put in a good
performance against Division
I Exeter. Additionally,
Manchester mentioned that his
decision was in part based on a
gut call to try and get another
spark for the team.
His decision delivered a
quick dividend as Bassi came
up with a dazzling glove save
on a shot earmarked for the top
left corner, just 4:27 into the
game. However, a sustained
Green Wave presence in the Packs end yielded
the rst goal of the game when Mitchell Welch
picked up a loose puck off a Bassi right pad save
and slid it past the Pack goalie for a 1-0 lead.
In the second period, Dover doubled its lead
just one minute and 47 seconds in, when Kieran
Lombard scored. After Bassi made four saves
during a Dover power play, the Pack regrouped
and cut the lead in half at the 8:40 mark on John
Monahans fourth goal of the year, from Porter
Carelli. Moments later, the Pack nearly tied the
score after a tremendous Vinny Forgione rush up
the left wing and subsequent centering pass to
Lubinger, who was positioned to the left of the
crease, was stopped by Ravenelle. In the nal
seconds of the period, a Cam Crowley back hand
got past a diving Bassi, but drew iron, leading to
a Wolfpack break-out from their zone. Coming
across the opposing blue line, Carelli snapped off
a wrist shot from 20 feet out that was destined for
the top left of the net but was instead snatched by
goalie Luc Ravenelle with just :12 showing on the
clock.
Looking to carry the momentum into the
third period, the Pack took to the ice in spirited
fashion. Unfortunately, it took merely a blink of
an eye after the puck drop before the air was let
out of their proverbial balloon. Just 7 seconds
in, Lombard took the puck off the winning draw
from center Grifn Guerra and went the distance,
sliding the puck past Bassi for what proved to be
the game winner.
Thirty ve seconds later, Lubinger picked up the
third of his four penalties on the night and things
seemed to be heading south in a hurry. But 40
seconds into the penalty-kill, Monahan rallied
the troops; scoring his second of the night and
bringing the Pack back to within one at 3-2.
Once again, however, ill-timed penalties
impeded W-Ps ability to comeback. With
Lubinger (tripping) and Mike Tardif (roughing)
simultaneously sitting in the sin bin, the Pack,
instead of being on the attack was faced with
holding off a 54 second two man Green Wave
advantage.
Grade A scoring chances in the last ve minutes
of action, off the sticks of Carelli and Justin
Miedico, went unanswered. As well, Blanchard,
from point blank range, was robbed by Ravenelle
with a ashing glove save with just :37.9 showing
on the clock. With Bassi pulled for the extra
skater, Dover iced the game with an empty netter
with just 18.2 seconds remaining.
Bryce Blanchard has been hot lately, scoring a hat trick
against Timberlane and increasing his season stats to seven
goals and nine assists.
