by Doug Robinson Campbell High School junior John Houston has been accepted to attend the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) as part a select group of approximately 2,250 young men and women from around the nation and internationally to attend the Naval Academy Summer Seminar program this year. The Naval Academy’s Summer Seminar is a fast- paced experience for high achievers who have completed their junior year in high school and are considering applying for admission to USNA after graduation. The Summer Seminar teaches prospective applicants about life at the Naval Academy, where academics, athletics, and professional training play equally important roles in developing our nation’s leaders. Each student will attend a six- day session and experience a part of USNA life. Students in the program live in Bancroft Hall (the dormitory in which all USNA midshipmen live), eat in the dining hall, participate in academic and leadership workshops, and participate in daily physical training involving group runs and conditioning exercises. They will have an opportunity to see firsthand what the Naval Academy has to offer through its exceptional academic, athletic, extracurricular activities, and leadership training programs. In addition, the Summer Seminar has an academic focus, with each student attending eight 90-minute workshops, covering subjects from information technology, Naval architecture, and mechanical engineering, to oceanography, mathematics, history, and meteorology. Students will also participate in seamanship and navigation classes and will take an actual cruise aboard a Navy Yard Patrol (YP) Craft to apply what they will learn in class.

U.S. Department of Labor Grant to Help NH Workers with Health Insurance Payments
submitted by the U.S. Department of Labor The U.S. Department of Labor has announced a $744,000 grant to provide partial premium payments for health insurance coverage to about 150 jobless workers in New Hampshire. Funds also will be used to upgrade the state’s existing benefit payment system. “Being without health care coverage can be one of the most stressful aspects of losing one’s job,” said Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis. “When workers have some assurance that their coverage will continue beyond a layoff, they can better focus on the task at hand: finding another good job that leads to long-term career opportunities.” The grant, awarded to the New Hampshire Department of Resources and Economic Development, will be used to provide “gap filler” payments for unemployed individuals who are receiving Trade Adjustment Assistance benefits
and are eligible for the Health Coverage Tax Credit program. Under the program, eligible individuals can receive 80 percent of premium costs for qualified health insurance programs. The payments provided through this grant
cover the gap period; that is, the time it takes to complete Internal Revenue Service enrollment, processing, and first payments under the HCTC program. The state of New Hampshire will provide two to three months of gap filler payments for each participant. New Hampshire also will use part of these funds to upgrade the state’s existing benefits payment system. National Emergency Grants are part of the secretary of labor’s discretionary fund and are awarded based on a state’s ability to meet specific guidelines.

life,” commented Houston. “It fits my lifestyle. It was my grandfather who told me about the Summer Program and I am excited about attending. I have already started the process to obtain sponsorship to the Naval Academy.” Founded in 1845, the Naval Academy is a highly competitive, four-year undergraduate institution that prepares young men and women morally, mentally, and physically to become officers in the Navy or Marine Corps. Upon graduation, Naval Academy midshipmen receive a Bachelor of Science degree in one of 22 majors and a commission as ensigns in the U.S. Navy or second lieutenants in the U.S. Marine Corps. In return, these young officers will serve at least five years of exciting and rewarding service to the nation.

House Republican Leader Urges Support of Parental Notification
submitted by House Republican Office In a formal letter to the House Judiciary committee today, House Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt (Salem) expressed strong support for HB 329, requiring parental notification before abortions may be performed on unemancipated minors. “We believe that it was a gross injustice to families across our state when the Democrats repealed this law in 2007, rather than working to fix it,” wrote Bettencourt. “In doing so, they gave the State of New Hampshire the shameful distinction of being the first and only state to repeal a parental notification law.” Parental notification was a key point in their legislative agenda announced by House Republicans in January. “This is not a debate about a social issue. One of the problems facing society today is the lack of parental involvement on many levels. Young girls who cannot so much
as be given an aspirin by the school nurse without parental permission must have their parents involved in such a crucial medical procedure, especially when it involves the long-term physical and mental health of their child,” Bettencourt added. The committee held a public hearing at the Legislative Office Building in Concord. House Republicans have expressed a willingness to work with the committee to craft parental notification legislation that would address the exception for medical emergencies. “I can assure you that the Republican Caucus will support a constitutionally viable parental notification bill so that parents have the right to know what is going on in the lives of their children,” Bettencourt concluded. Restoring parental notification was listed under
Personal Rights and Responsibility in the House Republican Agenda.
