was said to be for their mutual benefit. However, the day came when Pat asked for one of those promises to be fulfilled, but learned instead that Chris had emptied the joint bank account, and Pat was accused of being ungrateful. Indeed, it turned out that Chris didn’t have any intention of providing for Pat, unless Pat was willing to continue to support Chris. By the time Pat discovered that the money was gone, so was Chris …off on another trip to a foreign country to tell those people how selfish Pat had been. Love is blind … in romance and in politics.

The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC), in conjunction with the Rural Carriers and the U.S. Postal Service, will conduct a Food Drive to help restock community food banks.

Heartfelt Thanks and Appreciation

As a member of the Zachary M.

Tompkins Memorial Fund, I am writing to you today about a great man, a very selfless man, named Len Lathrop. Over the past few weeks, Len has played the role of friend, informer, and liaison for “Team Zachary.” Having Len’s knowledge and strong business connections has helped us achieve so much in such a short period, and I felt it necessary to say a very heartfelt Thank You to Len. He is truly an amazing human being, and we are very fortunate that he has joined our team. His leadership skills are impeccable and he is able to keep up with his own daily responsibilities, all while keeping our group on task. He has shown us what steps we need to take and also educated us along the way. On behalf of “Team Zach,” we are honored to have him as one

of our key players. Len is a born leader, and we very much appreciate his guidance with the planning and development of Zachary’s stadium. Many thanks for all of his dedication, hard work, and efforts, as he has helped us move that much closer to making Zach’s dream come true. Please pass on our message to him: “Len, our hats off to you—you truly are one in a million.”

Walk For A Cure” will be held on Saturday, May 1, at 11 a.m. in Mines Fall Park (Stellos Stadium entrance). Last year, we raised over $4,300, which was donated to the Lustgarten Foundation to be used in research towards early detection, better methods of treatment, and finding a cure for Pancreatic Cancer, which is the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths in this country. There will be a $5 participation fee per walker. No fee for children, and leashed dogs are allowed. Thank you for your support.

Head-on Crash Under Investigation

submitted by Hudson Police Department

On April 21 at 4:45 p.m., members of the Hudson Police and Fire Departments responded to the area of Webster Street by Scenic Drive for a reported head-on collision. Upon the officers’ arrival, it was determined that a 2008 Dodge Ram pick- up truck driven by Donald Knight, 59, of Litchfield, was traveling southbound on Webster Street and slowing to allow traffic to enter Webster Street from Scenic Drive and E&A Mart. A 2007 VW Passat, driven by Tara Colby, 29, from Manchester, was traveling behind Knight. Colby attempted to stop for Knight’s pick-up truck, but the

front end of Colby’s motor vehicle glanced off the rear end of Knight’s truck. This caused Colby’s motor vehicle to enter into the northbound lane of Webster Street and strike a 2007 Toyota Camry driven by Fatma Otova, 49, of Hudson, head on. All drivers were lone occupants in their motor vehicles. All drivers were wearing their seatbelts. The air bags in Colby’s and Otova’s motor vehicles were deployed. Hudson Fire Department EMTs

evaluated Knight on scene and he was released. Colby was transported by the Hudson Fire Department EMTs to Elliot Hospital in Manchester to be evaluated

for non-life threatening minor injuries. Otova was transported by the Hudson Fire Department EMTs to the Southern New Hampshire Medical Center in Nashua to be evaluated for non-life threatening minor injuries. The north and southbound lanes of

Webster Street at Scenic Drive were closed for approximately one hour while the Hudson Police Department investigated the accident. It does not appear alcohol was a factor in the collision and the accident remains under investigation.

The Hudson Police Department is conducting an investigation of the death of Anthony Girginis of Hudson, who was fatally wounded on April 25 at approximately 2:20 a.m. “During the initial investigation, the Hudson Police Department determined there was a small gathering of young adults at the resident when the incident took place, and the Hudson police also determined there was a firearm involved in the incident,” commented Hudson

Police Captain Bill Avery. As the police investigation is “on-going,” Hudson Police Chief

Jason Lavoie stated that details about the incident are not readily available. WMUR television reported that the results of an autopsy concluded that the shooting was “accidental,” and that witnesses at the house that evening stated that Girginis was “playing with the gun inside the kitchen and did not know it was loaded.” The Attorney General’s Office and Hillsborough County Attorney’s Office have both been notified per protocol. “This is a tragedy and our hearts go out to the family,” commented Chief Lavoie. “The family has asked that the media stop calling or visiting their house and allow them the time to grieve.”
