DiFruscia Seeks Re-Election Thank you for supporting
me over the past 12 years as your representative in the New Hampshire State Legislature. It has been an honor and a privilege to represent you. I hope you will continue your support for me when you vote in the primary on September 14 and in the final election on November 2. Serving in the legislature is a

commitment to public service. To be effective, a legislator must
be in attendance when the House is in session. I can proudly report that I have attended every voting session during my six terms in office. My record is one of fiscal prudence and social responsibility.
Legislators are presented with hundreds of bills each session. These bills must be carefully evaluated to determine whether they will best serve the people of our district and what the cost will be to the taxpayer. I currently serve on the Judiciary Committee. I believe that each person is born with inalienable rights that should be
protected by law. I support marriage equality and civil rights. I support expanded
gambling as a method of tax relief for the homeowner and as source of funding for education. I’ve been an advocate of consumer rights and worked with local citizen groups to develop Windham’s Rail Trail and to stop new tolls being placed on I-93. My record reflects strong support for environmental initiatives. I’ve co-sponsored legislation for senior citizen tax credits and the Evergreen Clause for public employees, which ensures job security while guaranteeing that the public will continue to receive public safety and services. I’ve supported legislation that promotes small businesses—the
mainstay of our economy. As a small business owner and recent recipient of a Merrimack Valley Small Family Business Award, I understand the problems facing businesses during these difficult economic times. I continue to practice law with my wife and partner, Kathleen,
at DiFruscia Law Offices, a firm I founded in 1967. I also own and manage affordable housing with AD Management and Realty, and Parkside Apartments West, LLC. I would appreciate your support and the opportunity to
continue to represent you in the New Hampshire Legislature. Please feel free to contact me either by e-mail at adifruscia@aol. com or at 898-8198.
Mike Downing Running for Rockingham Sheriff Rockingham County voters
will have the first opportunity in decades to choose from a number of candidates in the race for Rockingham County Sheriff, and each candidate’s qualifications is what will prove to be the difference. After a great deal of consideration and discussions with my family, I have decided to leave my position as the State Senator from District 22 and run for Rockingham County Sheriff. The job of Sheriff is not just that of being a top law enforcement official, but it’s an administrative position that demands experience in leadership positions. My knowledge of law enforcement,
business, and public policy make me uniquely qualified for Sheriff. Growing up in Salem with a family of five sisters and three brothers wasn’t easy, but it taught me compassionate values that I have carried with me throughout my life.
My wife, Heidi, and I run a small laundry business in Salem,
we have five children, and we are active in the area with several charities and boards. I joined the State Police in 1976 because I developed an affinity for public safety. As my desire to serve grew stronger, I joined the Army and began my tour with the 82nd Airborne Division in Military Police. The Army was, and continues to be, a distinctive opportunity to give back to our Country and to meet and serve with many amazing individuals. I have carried
Chalk From the Laconia Citizen, a bear that reportedly entered
a downtown home in search of food this week is prompting warnings from state wildlife officials who say that while generally not dangerous, the bruins should be avoided, and if confronted, be made to feel “unwelcome.” That’s the recommendation of Andrew Timmins, the Bear Project leader for the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, in response to a report of a black bear entering a home. Timmins urged residents to stay away from bears. “It’s important for people to recognize that bears don’t confuse a lack of human fear with aggression. These bears are in the area for the easy food; they’re not there to be harmful to people, but obviously you should keep your distance.” Timmins said anyone seeing a bear around a house should try to drive it off by making noise—clanging metal pans together works well, he noted, as does an air horn or even throwing rocks in the direction of the bear.
“It’s all about making
on in my role as Captain of the Ancient and Honorable Military Company, which is the third oldest chartered military organization in the World, and the oldest in the Western Hemisphere. Having served in the New Hampshire State Police, Salem
Police Department, and 82nd Airborne Military Police, I have a full understanding of how various law enforcement organizations operate and what is needed to create stronger communications that result in a safer Rockingham County. I have the skills and fundamental experience to be an effective manager and administrator for the office. As a Patrol Supervisor in the Salem Police Department, a former President of the Board of Directors of Salemhaven, a long-term care and skilled nursing facility, and a small business owner, I understand budgetary constraints and meeting a payroll. Over the past four years, I have had the privilege of serving as the State Senator from District 22, which includes Salem, Atkinson, Pelham, and Plaistow, and I have a proven record of fighting for taxpayers to stop huge spending increases, higher taxes, and cost shifting to local communities. As the next Rockingham County Sheriff, I’ll run a tight ship and stretch every dollar to extract as much value for taxpayers as possible. Fiscal responsibility and public safety must be the top issues for the next Rockingham County Sheriff, but above all else, I pledge to uphold the Department’s Mission, which is to “provide public safety services … emphasizing professionalism, cooperation, competence and integrity, in order to foster a partnership which will preserve and improve the quality of life in Rockingham County.” I appreciate your consideration and ask for your vote on Tuesday, September 14. Mike Downing is a Republican State Senator from Salem running for Rockingham County Sheriff.
them feel there’s a greater risk associated with getting that easy food. Make them unwelcome and starve them out of the area.” It is illegal to feed bears in the state, said Timmins, explaining that bears that become nuisances may have to be killed if they can’t be trapped and relocated. While the number of bears killed in the state continues to increase, the number of fatalities caused by bears in the Granite State remains at one, said Timmins, and that was recorded in 1784.

injured, sustaining serious head trauma. He was not wearing a helmet. DeSantis was traveling northbound on Brady Avenue on his 2004 Harley- Davidson motorcycle when the crash occurred around 11:55 p.m. Salem Fire Department arrived on scene and immediately requested a Med-Flight helicopter to transport the patient to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA. Salem fire/rescue immediately began performing life- saving techniques at the scene while awaiting a Med-Flight helicopter. Once the helicopter arrived, it could be seen in the sky from Porcupine Circle, Lowell Road, Brady Avenue, Cross Street, and the surrounding neighborhoods. Salem police secured an area at Campbell’s Scottish Highlands Golf
Course for the helicopter to land. Med-Flight was on scene at 12:23 a.m. and transported DeSantis to Boston around 12:23 a.m. Police closed Brady Avenue at Cross Street and about 500 yards south of the crash scene for approximately one hour while officers investigated the crash and DeSantis received treatment from Salem Fire while awaiting the helicopter. The crash scene was cleared around 1 a.m. after the motorcycle had been towed and officers were able to clear the scene. According to Sergeant Joel Dolan, the crash still remains under
investigation by the Salem Police Patrol Division to determine if speed or alcohol were factors in the crash. DeSantis’ condition was not available from Massachusetts General Hospital officials as of Wednesday morning.
