Windham Endowment Awards Community Advancement Award to Windham Historic Commission
submitted by Stephanie Nelson Wimmer The Windham Endowment for Community Advancement is
awarding its 2010 Community Advancement Award to the Windham Historic Commission. This is the second year the Endowment is recognizing a Windham-based organization for making a recognizable improvement to the Windham community. The recipient will receive a $1,000 endowment fund within the umbrella of the Windham Endowment. Since its inception in 1976, the Windham Historic Commission
has worked to preserve and restore the historic Searles School and Chapel. After two major building projects, including handicap accessibility adaptations, the building is now being used for town committee and organization meetings, social functions, business functions, awards events, and concerts. It is a venue for many Windham residents to commemorate important family events. Through the years, the Commission has led the way in the transformation of the building, from a deteriorating and detrimentally
modified structure to a beautiful, functional, and historically accurate building that is a significant community resource. Additionally, the Commission has organized and supported numerous events that give residents education and appreciation for the town’s history. For example, in fall 2009, the Commission organized a “Cemetery Walk,” where residents – young and old – played the character of some of Windham’s historic figures while standing at the grave of these people. Through the years, the Commission has fostered an appreciation for the town’s architectural and historic heritage. The Commission has successfully demonstrated that historic buildings can be preserved, appreciated, and useful. The Commission will be recognized at this year’s annual
Endowment Fundraiser on November 5 with a Casablanca-themed dinner at Rick’s Cafe Americain (Searles Castle) and Monte Carlo gaming.
State Representative Mary Ann Knowles Announces Candidacy
Mary Ann Knowles
State Representative Mary Ann Knowles has announced her candidacy for reelection from Hillsborough District 27 (Hudson, Litchfield, Pelham). A resident of Hudson since 1990, Representative Knowles has been active in volunteer and elective roles in the community. She is a former chair of the Hills Memorial Library Board of Trustees, and a current member of the Hudson Senior Advisory Council and the Friends of the Library. She has served on the State Library Advisory Council and the Executive Council District 4 Council for Health Planning.
First elected in 2006, Representative Knowles hopes to continue her efforts on behalf of a vibrant economic recovery, increased job opportunities, a balanced budget, fair education funding, and quality, affordable healthcare. She has served on the Labor, Industrial, and Rehabilitative Services Committee for the last four years. This past term, she fought to pass the WARN (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification) Act that requires businesses larger than 75 people to give advance notice of 60 days if they are
NH Continues to Lead Nation for Trust Services and Trust Service Jobs
submitted by Colin Manning New Hampshire, which has the seventh friendliest business climate in the country, continues to be a national leader in financial trust services, which is creating good-paying jobs in the state. Governor John Lynch recently signed legislation reforming the
state’s trust laws and continuing the state’s reputation as the best state for trust management services. “Reforming our trust laws is part of an overall effort to keep New Hampshire one of the most business-friendly states in the nation, which will continue attract and retain good, high-paying jobs in the financial services industry,” Governor Lynch said. The trust law reforms were in two separate bills. Senate Bill 421
improves and streamlines rules governing “family trust companies,” encouraging these family-run businesses to locate in New Hampshire so that in-state firms in the legal, financial, and other sectors can better provide services to these trusts. House Bill 1607 includes a provision that confirms long-standing rules that the state interest and dividends tax does not apply to trusts that have only out-of-state beneficiaries.
Time to Remove Those Political Signs
submitted by Tim Corwin, Zoning Board of Adjustment/Code Enforcement Administrator, Windham Primary day has come and gone. Unfortunately, not every campaign survived the democratic process. For those campaigns whose lives were cut short by the voters, there’s still more work to be done. That’s right—it’s time for those campaigns to take down their signs. Signs legally erected for the primary winners may stay put in anticipation of the general election, but everyone else’s must come down as soon as possible. Keep in mind that signs may only be removed by the state, the town, the campaign whose sign it is, or the property owner on whose property the sign was placed. Defacement of any political signs by anyone other than the owner of the property on which the sign is placed is strictly prohibited under state law. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Tim Corwin, Zoning Board of Adjustment/Code Enforcement Administrator, at 432-3806 or firstname.lastname@example.org
planning massive layoffs. She also helped to pass Governor Lynch’s New Hampshire Working legislation, an innovative jobs initiative aimed at helping workers and companies recover from the recession by helping unemployed workers return to work and providing training to help workers find new and better jobs. Representative Knowles has consistently contributed to the passage of significant legislation and was a voice for working men and women; the first increase of the New Hampshire minimum wage in 10 years; extending unemployment benefits to part-time workers; freedom of speech in the workplace; funding of more affordable workforce housing; and stiffer penalties to prevent employers from improperly classifying employees as independent contractors and to ensure proper compensation and benefits. She is especially proud of her efforts to bring public kindergarten to the children of District 27. Representative Knowles is concerned about quality-of-life issues that affect everyone in Hudson, Litchfield, and Pelham. She stresses the need for fiscal policies to make our economy stronger, and promises to fight for the health and safety of New Hampshire families.
Representative Knowles welcomes questions and comments about her candidacy. She can be reached by phone at 880-4908, e-mail at email@example.com

Work Done at Cable Studio by Volunteer
by Barbara O’Brien Michael Tanguay, proprietor of Best Choice Painting in Windham,
has been working hard at the town’s cable television studio. Tanguay isn’t spending his time there earning money, though. He is doing the job solely as a volunteer. Margaret Case, chairman of the Windham Cable Board, which
oversees WCTV, said Tanguay stopped by and volunteered to paint the control room at the television studio, as well as refinish the flooring. “He put down three coats of wax,” Case said. “I’ve never seen the floor look this good.” Tanguay also recently refinished the large, conference-style
table used during broadcasts, as well as a bookcase and all the woodwork throughout the control room. “He did a great job on everything he touched,” Case told selectmen during their meeting on September 13. Case said the value of the work donated by Tanguay is about
$500. “That’s absolutely fantastic,” Selectmen’s Chairman Charles McMahon said. The entire Board of Selectmen expressed their appreciation to Tanguay for his generous donation. Tanguay not only operates his own business out of Windham, but
he is also a long-time resident of the town. “Anyone who needs some sprucing up around their homes should get in touch with Best Choice Painting,” Case said. “He does superb work.” As for the finding a replacement for Anastasia Sofronis Barr,
who has resigned as Cable Coordinator for WCTV, Case said the interview process is proceeding well and the members of the cable committee expect to select a candidate from amongst those who have been interviewed. Sofronis, who is moving back to her home state of Vermont, has agreed to help during the transition period, once a new coordinator is hired.
