Altronics Manufacturing to Receive Grant to Train Workers
Governor John Lynch announced on February that five New Hampshire companies were awarded Job Training grants in February, which will help to train 230 New Hampshire workers in the new skills that workers and businesses need to compete. The grants, which are matched by the companies, total more than $130,000. Job Training grants are aimed at keeping good jobs in New Hampshire by helping companies train their workers with new skills to compete in a changing economy. Governor Lynch made it a priority to reinstate the Job Training Fund, which distributes up to $2 million annually in matching grants to allow companies to train new workers or retrain long-time employees. Since the Job Training Fund was reinstated in late 2007, more than 8,900 workers from across New Hampshire have received training and enhanced skills through the matching grant program. “With New Hampshire positioned as a national leader in economic recovery, it’s clear our economic strategy is making a difference. That strategy includes ensuring we continue to have a highly skilled, educated workforce in New Hampshire,”

Lee Lavoie Seeks Re-Election to Hudson School Board
My name is Lee Lavoie and will be seeking a second term on the Hudson School Board. Having been part of the budget process for the past three years, cuts have been made where needed and where reasonable and feasible. We educate children for $9,020 per pupil; the state average amount is $12,214. That’s a difference of $3,194 per child. If we spent the state average, it would be an increase of over $13 million more of a burden on the taxpayers. Tough economy or not, that would make it even worse on Hudson residents. Yet, for the majority of our students, they perform at the state average or better on the NECAP assessments given each year. Being self-employed, I know and have lived the tough economy that we all are experiencing. The increase in the budget
this year is reflective of the contractual obligations that the voters approved of in March 2010. The state has also made it difficult on local budgets by shifting the cost of retirement funding back to towns and cities instead of using state funding as it has in the past. This not only affects the school budget for future teacher retirements, but also the town budget for police and firemen. I am proud of the accomplishments and goals that have been reached in my past three years on the Board. I have worked with some truly dedicated members and have made some tough, yet rewarding decisions. Is it perfect? No—it’s a work in progress, and I look forward to the challenges of the next three years. Please vote on March 8.
Students Hone Babysitting Skills at Library by Karen Plumley
Certified Red Cross Instructor Jennifer Munroe of Nashua’s NH Gateway Chapter of the American Red Cross led the way in a day-long babysitting course for tweens and teens at the Pelham Public Library on Tuesday, February 22. The American Red Cross Babysitter’s Training included instruction on how to supervise children and infants, perform basic child-care skills such as diapering and feeding, and identifying and responding to such emergencies as choking and allergic reactions. Twenty students were given a combination of verbal and video instruction, and they were required to participate in childcare role-playing scenarios throughout the day. Course attendees were happy to demonstrate all they learned as the class time came to a close, including the two right ways of picking up an infant, as well as how to handle an unconscious, choking child.

while Marina said, “I think it is really fun and educational.” Callie Lindsay, 10, pointed out that she was “… surprised that we were going to be using real baby dolls for feeding and changing diapers. We learned all about how to pick them up properly, too.” During the
last half-hour of class, students were then
required to take an exam before they were awarded their American Red Cross babysitter’s training certificates. The test presented three or four different babysitting scenarios and required students to use the FIND decision-making model to identify the actions they should undertake. In addition to their certificates, attendees were also provided with a babysitter’s training handbook, emergency reference guide, and a CD-ROM of useful tools such as an organizer, resume template, activity booklet, games, songs, and recipes to use during a babysitting gig.
According to Munroe, she will be running other babysitting courses for kids at the library in April, and possibly in the summer. More future sessions may be designed to delve deeper into first aid, CPR, and how to handle babysitting a child with disabilities. For information on upcoming library events, call the Pelham Public Library at 635- 7581.
