Summer Course for Hospice Volunteer Training
submitted by Home Health & Hospice Care Home Health & Hospice Care is looking for people to volunteer their time to provide friendly visits to hospice patients in the greater Manchester and Nashua areas. Volunteers enhance quality of life by visiting hospice patients in a variety of environments, including homes, nursing home and assisted living facilities, hospitals, and the Community Hospice House. Volunteers are asked to complete a Hospice Training Course, which is typically offered in the spring and fall. Home Health & Hospice Care will be offering a special one- time summer intensive training course to accommodate teachers, college students, and others who wish to volunteer, and for whom the regular courses are not a good fit. The intensive 35-hour Hospice Training Program will be held over
a two-week period in August. Participants will meet from 12:30-5 p.m. daily on August 9, 10, 11, 12, 16, 17, 18, and 19. Sessions will be held at Hillsborough County Nursing Home at 400 South Mast Road on the border between Goffstown and Bedford. Potential participants are encouraged to register immediately so that they may complete the application and interview process prior to the start of training.
The training sessions are informative and cover a variety of topics, including hospice philosophy, listening skills, family dynamics, emotional and spiritual issues, pain and symptom management, complementary therapies, and grief and bereavement care. The training is free for those who intend to volunteer. Individuals interested in Hospice training for personal or professional reasons may attend for a fee.

. Raymond Ki Begins Peace Corps Service
submitted by Peace Corps New England Regional Office Raymond H. Ki, 22, of Windham has been accepted into the
Ki will depart for the Philippines on August 20 to begin pre- service training as an English Teacher Peace Corps volunteer. Upon completion of volunteer training in November, Ki will begin service by teaching English in his host community. Ki, son of George Ki and Chao Ping Hsu, graduated from Salem High School, and then earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Spanish from the University of Vermont – Burlington in 2010. Ki previously worked for Boston Education, Skills, and Training Corp and for the University of Vermont Learning Cooperative. During the first three months of his service, Ki will live with a host family in the Philippines to become fully immersed in the country’s language and culture. After acquiring the language and cultural skills necessary to assist his community, Ki will serve for two years in a community in the Philippines, living in a manner similar to people in his host country. “I wanted to make a difference in the lives of others in the world community,” Ki says of his decision to join the Peace Corps. Ki joins the 46 New Hampshire residents currently serving in
the Peace Corps. More than 1,513 New Hampshire residents have served in the Peace Corps since 1961. Over 8,300 Peace Corps volunteers have served in the Philippines since the program was established in 1961. It is the second oldest Peace Corps program. Volunteers in this Southeast Asian nation work in the areas of education, youth and family development, and coastal resource management. Currently, 134 volunteers are serving in the Philippines.

“Marketing is a big issue,” Historic Committee member Betty Dunn said, adding the importance of finding users for times other than weekends. Most events are booked for Saturdays at the current time. Dunn said that the Searles building does not even come up on a Web search for rental facilities. There is a link to the facility, however, on the town’s Website. Selectman Stearns said he would like to see town officials reach out to area colleges to see if there are any students who might be interested in undertaking Website development as a school project.
One question that was raised
was whether or not the town should pay for an independent marketing firm or try to do the job in-house. It was decided that the Facilities Coordinator would be tasked with researching how best to achieve the marketing required to make the building self-sustaining. The initial setup of a marketing strategy will be the most
expensive part of the process, with the cost approximating $5,000. “We need to improve access to information,” Dunn said. “We need to improve the Website, provide better literature, and advertise in the appropriate publications,” she added.
Selectman Hohenberger said he feels that town officials have to be cautious in what is spent, particularly in light of the stagnant economy and lower incoming revenue. “The facility needs to maintain self- sufficiency,” Hohenberger said. One of the goals is also to make the building available to town residents at a reduced cost. “We need to keep that in mind,” Dunn stated. “The townspeople decided
they wanted the building,” Selectmen’s Chairman McMahon said. “There are costs involved in that decision. The building must be maintained.” “With all the campaigning that goes on in this State, this

Historic Committee members and selectmen agreed that there are certain aesthetic aspects of the Searles School and Chapel that need to be enhanced in order to attract more functions, including: landscaping, a gazebo located behind the building, and refinishing the wooden flooring. Committee members were asked to present the proposed costs to selectmen during the upcoming budget- planning season sometime in October.
Peace Corps is growing and has many new and expanded opportunities in areas such as Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). The agency is also actively recruiting liberal arts majors who have a commitment to public service. Peace Corps volunteers gain both practical, tangible benefits and life-defining leadership experiences from their service. As Peace Corps approaches its 50th anniversary, its service legacy continues to promote peace and friendship around the world with 7,671 volunteers serving in 77 host countries. Historically, nearly 200,000 Americans have served with the Peace Corps to promote a better understanding between Americans and the people of 139 host countries. Peace Corps volunteers must be U.S. citizens and at least 18 years of age. Peace Corps service is a 27-month commitment.

Governor’s Veto Message Regarding HB 1161
submitted by Colin Manning By the authority vested in me, pursuant to part II, Article 44 of the New Hampshire Constitution, on July 26, 2010, I vetoed HB 1161.
HB 1161 would repeal the ability of New Hampshire cities and
towns to license persons who are engaged in the business of retail sales of firearms.
Since 1991, under RSA 159:8, cities and towns have had the authority to decide whether or not to require individuals who sell pistols, revolvers, and firearms at retail to obtain a local license. This license serves several purposes, including identification of retail gun sellers who might not be subject to federal firearms licensing requirements. Current law imposes on retail firearms sellers a requirement to know the identity of the person purchasing a gun, or to obtain clear evidence of their identity, including whether the purchaser has been convicted of a felony. While other state and federal laws prevent any person in New Hampshire from selling a firearm to a convicted felon, it does not seem necessary to take away the authority of municipalities – authority the state has granted for nearly 20 years – to license local retail sellers of firearms. The New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police have raised with me public safety concerns with taking away the local licensing authority, and have strongly urged that this bill not become law. For these reasons, and my view that changes to New Hampshire’s gun laws are not needed, I am vetoing this bill.
