National Lifeline Awareness Week

submitted by NH Office of Consumer Advocate During the nationally organized “Lifeline Awareness Week,” September 12-18, the New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission (Commission) and the New Hampshire Office of Consumer Advocate (OCA) are promoting the telephone programs, Lifeline and Link-Up Assistance, which offer discounts to low-income residents in order to ensure access to basic local telephone service. This discounted phone service makes it easier for New Hampshire customers to have access to local emergency services and community resources. Lifeline and Link-Up are two separate programs that can help income-qualified customers get new phone service and pay their telephone bills. These are federal programs implemented by local telephone companies that provide discounts to eligible households on installation costs for new phone service, as well as for basic monthly service. The Commission and the OCA want all New Hampshire residents to stay connected, including those who need phone service, but can’t afford it. You may be qualified if your household income is no more than 135 percent of the federal poverty income guideline, or if you participate in or qualify for any of the following programs: • Medicaid • Supplemental Security Income (SSI) • Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) • Electric Assistance Program (EAP) or Natural Gas Bill Assistance • Federal Public Housing Assistance (Section 8) • Food Stamps • Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF)

• National School Lunch Free Lunch Program (NSL) • Bureau of Indian Affairs Program (Tribal TANF, Head Start Subsidy, NSL)

Lifeline helps qualified customers who already have telephone service save money on their monthly phone bills, while Link-Up helps eligible customers receive a discount on the installation of telephone service in their homes. Some wireless companies participate in these programs, so customers should check with their wireless carriers.

Consumers can also save money by voluntarily foregoing pre- subscribed long distance telephone service by requesting toll- blocking, a service that prevents toll calls from being made from their phone. Customers using this service can still use pre-paid calling cards or dial-around services to place long-distance calls from their homes. To apply for either Lifeline or Link-Up, contact your telephone company. More information on the programs is also available on the Commission’s Website: The Commission is the state agency charged with regulating

the rates and services of utilities operating in New Hampshire. To contact the Commission, call 1-800-852-3793 or 1-800-735-2964 (TDD Access-Relay NH), e-mail us at, or check our Website at The OCA is an independent state agency representing the interests of residential utility ratepayers.

Masseuse Arrested for Sexual Assault

by Andrea Ganley-Dannewitz Police began an investigation into an alleged sexual assault that occurred in June, and have since made an arrest. On June 30, Salem Police responded to the Health Power Massage Spa located in the Mall at Rockingham Park for a report of a sexual assault, according to Deputy Police Chief Shawn Patten. The victim, a 22-year-old female, stated she had gone into the spa for a 60-minute massage. She stated that while on her back, she fell asleep for a short time period

and awoke to her shorts pulled down and the masseuse licking her breast. The masseuse quickly left the room and the victim got up, exited the spa, and immediately notified police. Salem detectives began investigating and retrieving evidence, including DNA swabs. On September 1, Salem detectives were contacted by the state lab with regards to the results of the DNA evidence detectives had submitted confirming the suspect was indeed the assailant. An arrest warrant for sexual assault was issued for Xijing Geng, 50, of Salem, who turned himself in Monday, September 13, at Salem Police Department. He was processed and released on bail, which was set at $10,000 personal recognizance pending an arraignment hearing at Salem District Court.


submitted by Barron School School is underway and fourth graders at Barron are already

working hard! Despite the heat during the first week of school, fourth graders settled quickly into their new classrooms and routines. It was nice to see students reuniting with old friends after summer vacation and kindly meeting new classmates. During these first weeks of school, fourth graders will be diving into the Science curriculum by learning about the Scientific Method, as well as health and hygiene. Rumors have already spread about the fun that goes along with our fourth grade’s infamous GSI Unit (Germ Scene Investigation), so students are anxiously waiting for that! In Social Studies, we are beginning to explore maps. Fourth graders will be learning about the various kinds of maps and how to read them.

In addition to the curriculum, students have been preparing for our Open House. Each fourth-grade class is working on creative ways for families to learn about their classrooms and the content that will be covered this year. It will make for an enjoyable evening. Students are looking forward to a fantastic fourth grade year of fun and learning! Calendar of Events (

Woman Tears Through Neighborhood Recklessly, Arrested for DWI

by Andrea Ganley-Dannewitz Police in Salem received a complaint from an employee at Tedeschi’s located on Main Street regarding a young female who came into the store to by a few items and appeared to be highly intoxicated. The employee at the store reported to police dispatch that the woman had gotten back into the SUV she was driving and drove away,

Brooke Parent

traveling east on Main Street. A Salem police officer located the vehicle and

activated his emergency lights, signaling the driver to pull over and stop. According to Deputy Police Chief Shawn Patten, the driver, Brooke Parent, 19, of Salem, did not cooperate. Parent took a right off of Main Street onto Granite Avenue, driving through yards and over fences in the blue 1998 Ford Explorer she was operating. “While fleeing from the officers, she drove over

several front yards, damaging lawns, fences, solar lights, hedges, and signs at several residences along the road. The suspect vehicle then turned onto Park Avenue, striking a dumpster; then, turned onto Bernice Avenue, where the vehicle struck a tree and finally stopped,” Deputy Chief Patten said. Parent allegedly then exited the vehicle and

fled on foot through yards and into the woods behind Parkview Avenue. Officers caught up to the suspect as she came out into the athletic fields behind the Woodbury Middle School. She was taken into custody and transported to Salem Police Department for processing. Her blood alcohol content registered at twice the legal limit. She was bailed out on $500 cash, pending arraignment at Salem District Court. She is charged with aggravated DWI, criminal mischief, and resisting arrest. The incident remains under investigation, as police are gathering damage estimates from the victims. Just a few minutes after Parent was taken into

custody, many residents from the neighborhood exited their homes to find their front yards and property badly damaged during the pursuit. One resident on Park Avenue had a dumpster on their property that Parent struck, causing the dumpster to hit the house and damage the residence. Police were on scene for quite a while speaking with residents who were victims of the damage that Parent caused.

Outdoors Rescue


By statute, the rescue of anyone from our woods or waters falls to the Department of Fish & Game. This law was written in an earlier time when rescues were not so common. But today, there are more people, and more people hike. Rescues take up a lot of time of our Conservation Officers, and the money for those rescues comes from each OHRV and boat registration at $1 per registration. That totals about $200,000 a year; not nearly enough. So the balance comes from other sportsmen’s dollars; none from the general funds. Sportsman and OHRV enthusiasts carry the burden while hikers pay nothing. This cannot continue; limiting the resources of our Fish and Game Department to rescues and not conservation of wildlife and the few paying for many. It is time to ask those who are running for office to stand up and rectify this situation. Ask them to support rescue operations from the general fund. Ask them why there are less Fish & Game offices today than in the 1960s. Ask them and demand answers.
