Beach Safety Tips


• Keep a sharp eye on young children while they are in the water;


• Lakes are not swimming pools—the water is murky and you may not see where it becomes deeper, so exercise caution;


• Bring a cell phone to make an emergency call if necessary. Check before swimming that there is cell phone service in that location;


• Swim only in designated areas at the beach and the lake; • Use the buddy system and designate one member of your party to remain on the beach to keep watch on the others while they are swimming;


• Enjoy the fun that water offers, but take regular breaks and relax on the beach;


• Alcohol and swimming do not mix. Leave these beverages at home when you come to the beach;


• It can’t be said enough—keep an eye on the kids! Charlie Chalk can be reached at outdoorswithcharlie@areanewsgroup.com Chalk


Safety is an important part of a fun family outing in parks. Remember that in addition to packing lotions, beach toys, and snacks, parents and adult guardians should take a high level of awareness along on any outing to a beach. To fully enjoy a safe outing at a beach, follow these tips:


Senator Shaheen Supports MooreMart


submitted by Paul Moore On June 16, MooreMart sponsored its fifth annual 4th of July


packing event, where volunteers from throughout New Hampshire packed and shipped 1,520 care packages containing requested supplies to members of the armed services serving in the Middle East to include supplies sent to schools and orphanages in Iraq and Afghanistan. The June 16 shipment brings the total number of care packages shipped by MooreMart to members of the United States Armed Services to 36,668 and the total amount of Humanitarian aid to 3.5 tons. The June 16 volunteers included members of United States Senator Jeanne Shaheen’s staff, including Sarah I. Holmes, who was presented with an American flag flown in Afghanistan by members of the New Hampshire National Guard in recognition of her service to our troops. Senator Shaheen has been instrumental in expanding MooreMart’s outreach program and has been an avid supporter since 2005. The June 16 packing event was hosted by the New Hampshire National Guard at the National Guard Armory in Nashua.

Governor’s Veto Message Regarding HB 109


submitted by Colin Manning By the authority vested in me, pursuant to part II, Article 44 of the New Hampshire Constitution, on June 15, 2011, I vetoed HB 109, an act relative to residential fire sprinklers.


HB 109 prohibits local planning boards from requiring the installation of a fire suppression sprinkler system in proposed one or two-family residences as a condition of approval for a local permit. It also lessens the ability of local communities to work cooperatively with developers to move projects forward in cost-effective


ways. Instead of allowing communities to work with developers to substitute sprinkler systems, communities will now have to revert to requiring what may be more costly options: fire ponds, cisterns, wider road widths, increasing the size of building lots and increasing the size of distance between buildings.


HB 109 will also prohibit municipalities from


enforcing their current sprinkler ordinances. Today, communities from Salem to Hooksett to Boscawen to Lebanon have these ordinances, which have been approved by the local governing bodies. I believe that the decision of whether or not to require fire sprinklers for new or renovated residential development should remain a local one. The State should not dictate a required course of action. It is obviously the local community that is impacted from new residential development both in terms of land use and in terms of bearing the costs of providing increased fire protection services. This legislation will remove local control over an important issue. The State Fire Marshal and numerous local fire departments across the State also have concerns about the ability of local officials to continue to have fire sprinkler systems as a local option. For these reasons, I am vetoing HB 109.


Facts on Fireworks


It’s that time of year again, when warm weather brings on celebrations, parades, car- nivals, and other events that take place under the summer sky. Fireworks seem tailor-made for warm weather festivities -- their spectacle of loud booms and awe-inspiring twinkling lights adding to the enjoyment. Although many towns and cities across the country coordinate fireworks displays, their prevalence doesn’t necessarily mean personal firework use is legal. To avoid hefty fines, indi- viduals should learn if firework use is legal in their area.


Fireworks are said to have originated in China some 2,000 years ago. Fireworks may have been discovered on pure chance, when a cook mixed combustible ingredients, now commonly found in fireworks, and they ex- ploded. True credit to fireworks is given to a Chinese monk named Li Tian, who lived during the Song Dynasty. The Chinese people celebrate the invention of the firecracker every April 18 by offering sacrifices to Li Tian.
