Saluting the Stars and Stripes in Honor of Memorial Day

submitted by Flag Manufacturers Association of America The Flag Manufacturers Association of America (FMAA) hopes

that all Americans will join them in displaying the flag of our country in observance of Memorial Day on Monday, May 30. Memorial Day is a day reserved to honor the memory of those who paid the ultimate price for our freedoms while in service to our country. Flying the American flag would not only be an expression of gratitude and respect for those who died, but also show support for the men and women who are continuing now to fight to keep our country safe. In observance of Memorial Day, FMAA recommends that all US citizens: • Fly the U.S. flag at half-staff until noon. For U.S. flags displayed on a short staff or for indoor flags that cannot be lowered to half-staff, tie a black bow above the full- staffed U.S. flag.

• Fly the “POW/MIA” flag as well.

• Visit cemeteries and place flags or flowers on the graves of our fallen heroes.

• Visit memorials and take part in services sponsored by veterans.

• Participate in a “National Moment of Remembrance” at 3 p.m. Take a few moments to reflect on the true meaning of the day and be mindful of the sacrifices of others in defense of our nation.

• Make a pledge to aid those families affected by our fallen heroes, and to aid disabled veterans. The correct procedure for displaying the flag at half-staff

Assistance submitted by Hudson Police Department On May 23 at

approximately 8:12 p.m., officers from the Hudson Police Department responded to Adamo’s Pizza, located at 142 Lowell Road, Hudson, for a reported robbery. Upon arrival, officers learned that there were three employees present at this location when the robbery occurred. None of the employees were injured. The names of the employees are not being released at this time for investigative reasons. The suspect was described

as a white male, 5 feet, 6 inches to 5 feet, 10 inches tall, and possibly with a “stocky” build. The suspect was wearing a black ski mask, black thick winter coat, clear “see-through” ski goggles, black pants, and black shoes. The suspect displayed a large knife, possibly a kitchen knife, during the course of the robbery. The suspect fled the location after seizing an undisclosed amount of money. Hudson police detectives responded to assist with the crime scene. The Hudson Police Department is asking any citizens with information about this robbery to contact the Criminal Investigation Division at 886-6011.

is to raise the flag to the top of the pole briskly, pause for a moment, and then slowly bring it down to where the top of the flag is at a position approximately halfway between the top and bottom of the pole. At noon, the flag should be raised quickly to the top of the flag pole. At the end of the day, the flag should be lowered slowly and ceremoniously for the day. With Memorial Day, Flag Day, and Independence Day all within a few short weeks of each other, summer is prime time for flying your flag. Before hanging your flag, FMAA encourages all citizens to be sure it truly is an American-made flag. U.S. law requires every flag be labeled with its “Country of Origin.” Those designated

“Made in the USA” may be true to their name. However, only those bearing the FMAA Certification seal are guaranteed to adhere to the standards and continued compliance as monitored by a professional association and its domestic members. The Flag Manufacturers Association of America is a non-profit

trade association, established in 2003, dedicated to educating and promoting the quality, variety, and proper use of flags manufactured in the United States. For more information on the Flag Manufacturers Association of America, visit our Website at

We have a sound vision for the future of New Hampshire and it’s


The Northern Pass will invest more than $1.1 billion in local New Hampshire communities.

We all contribute to the culture, society, and economy that make New Hampshire a special place. And we all care when changes are proposed to the state we call home. But sometimes changes need to occur in order to solve the tough challenges facing our communities and our families.

In these uncertain economic times, The Northern Pass will create more than 1,200 jobs for New Hampshire residents. Surveyors and lineworkers, construction workers and the industry that supports them will have money in their pockets.

The project will generate $25 million in additional tax revenues for schools, public safety, and to help maintain the infrastructure of New Hampshire. That means improving libraries, keeping our snowplows moving, and fixing our roads after long winters.

It will provide us with 1,200 megawatts of clean, reliable energy. That’s enough to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to five million tons a year—equal to the annual emissions of 900,000 cars! And importantly, this is the affordable and sustainable energy we need to attract new businesses and support new manufacturing in our state and throughout the region.

Right now the project is exploring partnering with local telecommunications providers to expand broadband access in the North Country, an effort that would remove the single biggest obstacle to true economic development and job creation in the region.

Because at the end of the day, this discussion is not just about energy—it’s about jobs, about local tax revenues, and about a sustainable future for the communities we call home.
