Breault’s time sheets, Lavoie realized that Breault was often late. When approaching Breault to discuss his tardiness, Lavoie testified that Breault stated, “He admitted to being bitter about not getting the Chief’s job.” Lavoie continued to state that Breault stated, “Write me up. Want to suspend me? So what. Nothing you can do to me.” When the Chief had not received from Breault updates on assigned duties, he continued to dig deeper into Breault’s activities while on duty. Lavoie enlisted Hudson’s Information Technology Department and put a “screen capture”
At the end of the week, Julia enthusiastically returned to my office with her shoe box now filled with coins. She had successfully managed to collect $37.22 from her classmates. Moved by her enthusiasm, I encouraged her to keep the box in the classroom for one more week, and, if she doubled the collection amount, I would generously match the amount. Hmmmmmmm … Famous last words! Sure enough, one week later Julia again

showed up at the office; this time, however, without the now familiar shoe box. Instead, she toted a large empty gift bag and carried a tiny piece of paper.
on Breault’s computer. The screen capture recorded all activities on the computer every few seconds. “It was on 8/10 that I noticed someone
was changing payroll screens,” testified Chief Lavoie. “Comp time was being changed, as well as alternative requests were being changed.” As Assistant Prosecutor Vara continued to question Chief Lavoie, copies of time sheets that Breault had put in for comp time for “clearing off snow from the cruisers” at 6 a.m., altered time for Police Officers Training, altered time for Citizens Police

Also, on this visit, her best friend Marinna accompanied her. The girls excitedly handed me the empty bag so I could place in it my “matching gift,” along with the slip of paper indicating the new amount that they had raised. I glanced at the total, blinked unbelievingly, and stared again … $512.48 stared right back at me. Oh, my … How could this have happened? Two young girls stood before me, seemingly much too young to have achieved such a tremendous result. And yet their glowing smiles conveyed without a doubt that they had indeed accomplished their goal. The girls explained that they had taken it upon themselves to hold a bake sale at St. Jude’s
Parish to raise enough money to make “my match” worth my while. With the guidance and support of Marinna’s mom, they had multiplied Julia’s original $7.51 many times over and provided a significant financial help to her cousin. As the two friends joyfully left my office with an extra $512.48 toward their cause, I could not help but reflect on the wonderful gift that, in conjunction with the parents, we are handing down to our children here at the Academy—the gift of sharing. Such are the intangible rewards that can brighten an educator’s life and fill her with profound gratitude on an otherwise ordinary day!
Academy, and 40 hours of earned time changed to 40 hours of comp time were testified. In addition, his falsification of timekeeping records of himself also occurred during the Bike Rodeo/Safety Seat Inspections and Blood Drive. Evidence presented reflects that he changed his paid vacation hours to comp time hours as well. The Area News Group will continue with the rest of the trial next week, and the trial is being held at the Hillsborough Superior Court, located on Spring Street, Nashua, in courtroom No. 4.

If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you But make allowance for their doubting too, If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies, Or being hated, don’t give way to hating, And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise: If you can dream - and not make dreams your master, If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build ‘em up with worn-out tools: If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breath a word about your loss; If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!” If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with kings – nor lose the common touch, If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you; If all men count with you, but none too much, If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run, Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, And – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son!

word was his bond,” and revealed he was “humble” and never sought “pats on the back; a hand shake was his word.” Phil was also dedicated to family. At 19, he married Barbara Haight, with whom he had five children—Susan, Cheryl, Dana, LeeAnn, and Todd. They were married and lived in Hudson for 46 years. “I have nothing but good memories,” recalled LeeAnn. “Dad taught us so much about faith, family, and respect. He gave us all so much.” Recently, Phil split his time equally between hometown Hudson and Cape Coral, FL, where he loved the scenic harbor view. After dating eight years, he married his life-long friend and “soul-mate,” Marion (Shepherd) Bouley, on August 23, 2009, aptly at the new Rodgers Memorial Library. Most Saturdays, Phil pursued his passion foryard sales. Like many raised during the depression, he was a frugal “bargain and trade man” and had a keen eye for usable stuff. “He just loved people and fed off bartering and flipping,” shared Marion. “He especially liked yard sales at houses that he had built decades before, where homeowners often exuberantly welcomed him.” Through his contributions and public offices, Phil respectfully
lived the Lion’s Club motto, “We Serve,” as detailed in the part two. He lived for his family, community, and work, and instilled those
maxims into his five children and many grandchildren, nephews, and nieces—many whom are an integral part of Hudson today. While his most recent and biggest donation was the new Rodgers Memorial Library, Phil had been involved in the library building committee in 1980, when a new library first appeared on the Hudson ballot. “As a proud Hudson citizen all of my life, this is something I’ve long dreamed of,” stated Phil four years ago when the brothers pledged “to give back” and “create a lasting gift to honor our parents.” He concluded, “In my younger days, I never gave much thought to how much my parents did or how important they were to me and others. We often don’t appreciate the people we love until they are gone.”
