Cutler to Continue as Superintendent for Upcoming School Year


submitted by Litchfield School Board


The Litchfield School Board is pleased to announce that Elaine F. Cutler, Ed.D, has agreed to continue as the Superintendent of Schools for the 2011-2012 school year. As a result of the reduction of adequacy funding, Dr. Cutler will continue her commitment to work with the district to implement a budget that offsets a $2 million reduction in state aid while minimizing impacts to students’ education. Realizing that a funding reduction of this magnitude cannot be a reality without serious changes within the district, Dr. Cutler and her


staff worked with the community and brought forth a budget that preserves – to the optimum degree possible – educational services to children and their families while minimizing impact to the taxpayers. Because of her experience and knowledge of the District, the School Board believes Dr. Cutler remains the best person to lead this district through the implementation of this budget in the 2011-2012 school year. Dr. Cutler joined SAU 27 as an interim superintendent in November 2007.

Prepping the Holiday Bird


Chalk


Here are a few ideas for your holiday bird. Bradley brand smokers provided these for your use. Kitchen oven simple This is an incredibly quick and easy way to put rich, smoke


flavor on an oven-cooked turkey. Put your choice of wood in the smoker. Most turkeys and chicken benefit from 60-80 minutes of heavy smoke and you will get an incredibly rich flavor. Place thawed, washed, and dried turkey into the smoker and allow it to smoke for 60-80 minutes. For this recipe, you need not turn on the Bradley cooker unit—just the smoke unit. Once the turkey is smoked, prepare and cook it in your kitchen oven as you normally would.


Smoke and oil frying Generally, the only way to add flavor to deep-fried turkey is to inject all kinds of stuff into the bird before lowering it (carefully) into the deep fryer. This time, try placing the thawed, washed, and dried bird into your smoker for 60-100 minutes (no need to turn on the Bradley cooking unit). After this smoking period, then season and deep-fry it per your fryer’s directions. What you get is a deep-fried bird with rich, smoke flavor—life is good and this fried bird is great.

State Recovers $2.6 Million in Medicaid Settlements with Drug Makers


submitted by NH State Attorney General’s Office Attorney General Michael A. Delaney announces that New Hampshire recently finalized a settlement with AstraZeneca as part of larger national case against the drug manufacturer. The case involved the company’s alleged off-label marketing of Seroquel, an antipsychotic medication approved to treat certain psychological disorders. New Hampshire received more than $2.4 million in the settlement out of the $520 million that was paid to states for Medicaid program damages. The settlement addressed allegations that from 2001 to 2006, AstraZeneca promoted the sale of Seroquel for uses that the Food and Drug Administration had not approved, including Alzheimer’s disease, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and dementia. In a separate case, New Hampshire has recovered more than $175,000 from drug maker Novartis as part of a national Medicaid settlement worth $66 million. In that case, it was alleged that Novartis, and a predecessor company, Chiron, engaged in the


off-label marketing of tobramycin, an inhalable antibacterial marketed under the name TOBI. The Food and Drug Administration had approved TOBI for treating lung infections associated with cystic fibrosis. The settlement addressed allegations that between 2001 and 2006, Chrion and then-Novartis promoted TOBI for unapproved uses, including for diseases other than cystic fibrosis and for cystic fibrosis patients that did not meet the parameters for FDA-approved use. “The Medicaid program provides important prescription drug


coverage for New Hampshire’s most vulnerable residents. In order to protect New Hampshire taxpayers from paying no more than is necessary for this program, and as demonstrated by these settlements, my Office will continue to work closely with the Attorney General from other states in pursuing drug manufacturers when the evidence supports such action,” said Attorney General Delaney.
