cat, though I prefer people to think of me as 12 years young not old! I crave attention and love to be patted and picked up. I am good with children, enjoy meeting new people, and have lived with small, calm dogs, however I need to be the only cat in the house. I am up to date on all of my vaccines, spayed and microchiped, and waiting for a great new home! Since I am a senior cat, someone over the age of 60 could adopt me for very little out of pocket expense through the Pets for the Elderly Foundation. Please come to the Humane Society to meet me and my friends and learn more about this program to help place senior animals with senior citizens.
My name says it all, I have a lush brown coat that is as rich and silky as the finest Swiss chocolate! I am a friendly, happy, senior male

If you are up for outdoor adventures and like to have fun then I am the dog for you! I am a 2 year old female Greyhound Cross with beautiful brindle coloring, a great personality and boundless energy. I love to play and
always keep my favorite stuffed toys by my bed. I know many of the basic commands, and I’m eager for you to teach me more. I like to be groomed and loved and settle nicely into a nap after playing outside. I was
brought to the shelter as a stray and have been microchiped here so I won’t ever be lost from my new family. I am up to date on all
vaccines and have been neutered too. Please consider adopting me so we can enjoy the sunny, warm spring days together!

HUDSON ANIMAL HOSPITAL AAHA
New Year- New Insurance- New SMILE!
submitted by Lesley Saunders
On March 17, the students of the Agriculture Business and Farm Management classes at Alvirne visited Hills Garrison Elementary School to celebrate National Agriculture Literacy Day. Each year, a children’s book is chosen to be an official Agriculture Literacy Day book; Sugarbush Spring is this year’s chosen book. The high school students read the story to the elementary students, and will be donating the five books to each of Hudson’s elementary schools and the public library. Agriculture Literacy Day is a day devoted to promoting the importance of agriculture education. Increased knowledge of agriculture and nutrition allows individuals to make informed personal choices about diet and health. Informed citizens will be able to participate in establishing the policies that will support a competitive agricultural industry in this country and abroad. Agriculture is too important a topic to be taught only to the small percentage of students considering careers in agriculture and pursuing vocational agricultural studies. Agricultural literacy includes an understanding of agriculture’s history and current economic, social, and environmental significance to all Americans. This understanding includes some knowledge of food and fiber production, processing, and domestic and international marketing. It is important that everyone knows that agriculture is essential for life because it puts food in our stomachs and clothes on our back.

Hudson School District Recount
When the March 9 ballots were counted, there was only a one-vote difference between Lars T. Chris- tiansen and Melissa Tobin for a three-year term on the School Board, rendering the need for a recount. The recount occurred in the conference room at the School Admintrative Unit offices in the old Webster School at 7 p.m.
Under the direction of Mod-
erator Paul Inderbitzen with assistance from J. Bradford Seabury, School District Clerk, five teams of four people each examined every ballot cast. In the team of four were two neutral people assigned by the moderator and observer for each of the candidates. Each ballot result was read aloud, verified by the observer, and then tabulated for the candi- date. The final outcome was Donna Straight, 1,128, an increase of one vote from her previous total; Melissa Tobin, 1,304, or a decrease of one ballot from her previous total; Lars T. Christiansen, 1,308, or an increase of two ballots; Patti Langlais, 1,637, or an increase of one ballot over the previous total. The elected members to the

Litchfield Execs Look at Proposed Hudson Casino
If a proposed casino complex in Hudson is approved, neighboring towns could gain jobs, business, and a projected 1.03 million dollars in revenue sharing. That’s what representatives of the proposal told Litchfield residents and elected officials at a special meeting last Thursday night at the Litchfield Town Hall. State Representatives Lynne and Russ Ober, Jordan Ulery, Bob Haefner, Laura Gandia, Valerie Hardy, and Ralph Boehm attended, along with many of Litchfield’s elected officials. Of the anticipated $415 million in gross revenue, one percent would be shared equally among the towns that directly border Hudson—Nashua, Pelham, Londonderry, and Litchfield. “That $415 million number becomes important to the town of Litchfield,” said Jay Leonard, an attorney representing the project. “We try to stay away from exact numbers, but the advantage to Litchfield is that it’s one percent of this facility, which will be one of the two biggest in the state.” In total, Leonard said, construction efforts would cost more than $400 million, with an anticipated 3,400 permanent jobs.

A Hudson resident and lobbyist answers questions
Former state Sen. Bob Clegg, who lobbies for the Hudson project in Congress, also spoke about the proposal outlining jobs to be created. “Despite some of the rumors you may hear, these will be good-paying jobs with benefits,” explained Clegg. “Seventy-five of the jobs would be $36,000 annual salary, plus tips, with health and benefits.” While he expects employees to be local, Clegg said a majority of business would be drawn from southern New England votes.
Clegg and Leonard said they are confident they
have the support of Hudson voters, and Selectmen Chairman Frank Byron shared that sentiment. “We’ll see what happens,” he said, closing the discussion, “and hopefully Hudson approves this.”
