Open Issues- continued from front page
decided that they would back out and cut all of their liaison roles, leaving the new Town Administrator with the entire administrative role. Formerly selectmen held open public staff meetings when there were five Monday’s in a month. These meetings were an opportunity for department heads to update selectmen on departmental issues, but these meetings also stopped and nothing replaced them. In both Hudson and Pelham, two other towns with Town Administrators, selectmen still retain liaison responsibilities with the town administrator handling the day-to-day functions. A communication vacuum formed that both sides are working to bridge.
At Monday’s Selectmen’s meeting
Schofield apologized for the vacuum, said that he was back on his A game and looking forward to working with everyone. One of the open issues was a repair bill for one of the town’s fire trucks. According to Schofield, the engine was undergoing the required annual pump certification when the serious structural problem was found by the vendor. “I immediately began trying to find how to get the truck fixed and back into service.” Schofield said this emergency repair would fit into the repair budget for the department and while the overall repair cost was high, it was legally required. Noting that he was very busy with his new job, he also said that he failed to notify Hoch, but would not make that mistake again. Schofield also said that he and Hoch had met and gone over all equipment issues facing the Fire Department and that’s he’d be sure to keep Hoch in the loop. Another issue is a missing $5 receipt for a purchase made at Staples. The receipt got misplaced and Schofield said he was trying to get a duplicate receipt. He also said that he’d been working with Terry Brodeur on improving the process because the window between the receipt of the statement and payment was short. Schofield said that he’d also worked with Hoch on that and was comfortable “working within the policy.”
Board of Selectmen Chairman Steve Perry urged Schofield to keep
Hoch in the loop and said the value from such communication was that everyone would know the details and not be wondering.
Selectmen had questions about
training and Schofield reminded them that all training was outlined in the budget that had been passed in March. While much of the training has been accomplished at the National Fire Academy, he also said he is working with the Local Government Center (LCG), the town’s insurance carrier, on additional training and is putting together an outline with costs. Schofield and Hoch had been discussing the specialized training being offered by the LGC. Schofield agreed to withdraw one of his personnel policies. He and Hoch are looking at other models for this situation. “I understand the implementation has been a concern,” stated Schofield. “My intention with this type of policy was to create an incentive to ensure that members made a good faith effort to support the critical function of the department.” On April 25 selectmen had written a letter to Schofield asking about a variety of historical questions. Schofield said that he’d be happy to sit with Hoch and review those items. “Many of the things in your letter from the 25th can be compiled from existing files within the department,” Schofield wrote in a memo to selectmen. Perry said that he thought the meeting was a good step toward moving the town’s relationship with the Fire Department “back to where we ought to be” and Schofield agreed, noting again that his new job had taken many more hours than he originally anticipated, but that he was back to a more normal schedule and fully expected to be back on top of his “A game.” Even with the communication
flowing again, selectmen are faced with an on-going issue - can Litchfield’s Fire Department function the way they want with only 2.26 paid hours per week of a Fire Chief’s time or should they move to a full time Fire Chief as they long ago did with their Police Chief? At this time it is not known whether that move is recomended or how such a measure will effect taxpayers.

7/22-8/12/11 Team new Engaland- continued from front page
format, it was not a factor for the Hudson U12 team as they plowed through their opponents, going 4-0 and as a result moved on to the State Tournament. The boys in Bronco maroon and gold had a good ol’ time in Manchester, as they repeated their 4-0 District performance, with the key wins being over last year’s state champ as well as Merrimack, who knocked Hudson out of the tournament in 2009. In advancing to the third round of the qualifying tournament, the ‘Boys of Hudson’ visited Dover to compete in the New England Regionals. The team that emerged victorious from this regional would be headed to the World Series.
In a true team effort, the U12 team continued their superior play by going 4-0 once again, outscoring their opponents 22-8 during the beat-downs. For the first two rounds of the tournament, the Hudson coaching staff used three pitchers in their starting rotation. However, during the Regionals, the rotation was shortened to two, with Matt McKinley picking up victories in games one and three. Teammate and fellow hurler, Mike Simard did his part by notching victories in games two and four. Brian McKinley was extremely proud that his starters were able to go the distance, “Hudson was the only team to throw four complete games in the Regionals,” according to the pleased skipper. ”Pitching and defense, moving runners and timely hits in the Regionals - a great formula” is how Coach Dean Lamothe assessed the team’s performance that allowed them to advance. Manager McKinley also noted that “we are the first team from Hudson to ever go to the World Series. I don’t think it’s really set in on the kids yet. The parents get it - (but) for the kids, it’s just another tournament.” A final game, 8-3 thrashing of host team Dover proved to be the last order of business, allowing manager McKinley to book his e-tickets for the flight to Baltimore. The U12 All-stars will be practicing in Hudson until they leave for Maryland. During a short-manned, yet loose practice session conducted this past Tuesday evening, Don Berry, marveled at the extraordinary accomplishments and opportunity that lies ahead for this young group of boys; “this team is phenomenal. They have been playing together for so long-it adds to the continuity.” An informed opinion for sure, as Berry is not only the operations manager of Hudson Youth Baseball,

Team New England’s manager Brian McKinley (L) along with coaches Dennis Bourdrea (C) and
Dean Lamothe relax for a bit just prior to attending to business on the practice field, as they prepare for the Cal Ripken Major World Series
he is also the dad of the team’s first baseman, Steven Berry. It was obvious the boys and coaches were relaxed, yet focused. Hopefully, as the tournament proceeds, manager Brian McKinley and coaches Dean Lamothe and Dennis Boudreau along with all the players and supporters will have the times of their lives, as every minute of this amazing story unfolds.
Although the Cal Ripken organization is being very generous in covering the cost of transportation to the tournament, in addition to providing a couple of hotel rooms, there is still an imminent need for additional funds to provide for adequate accommodations for all the players and coaches. As a result, the team members and their parents are holding a fund raiser on Friday, August 5, from 6-9 p.m. at Kendall Pond Pizza, located on Lowell Road, in Hudson. The friends at Kendall Pond will be donating 5 percent of the proceeds from the evening to assist the team
financially. Players representing the team will also be at the Pheasant Lane Mall in Nashua that same night. They will be in front of Dick’s Sporting Goods attempting to raise funds for the trip. On Saturday and Sunday, August 6 and 7, the team will be outside Stop & Shop in Hudson, from 9-3. At each of the locations, raffle tickets will be able to be purchased to support the U12 team’s once in a life time experience. There will be three prizes raffled off, with the grand prize being four box seats, near the home dugout, to a Red Sox vs. Rays game on September 15 (a near $2,000 value). Team New England will face the
Pacific Southwest representative in the first round of the World Series, which runs from August 13 through the 21st. Best wishes to Team New England - The Pride of Hudson Youth Baseball.
