by Marc Ayotte The team formerly known as the Hudson U-12 All-Stars has met some stiff worldwide competition at the Cal Ripken World Series in Aberdeen, MD. Team New England, as they are known in ‘world baseball circles,’ went down to defeat to Team Hawaii 12-2 in their first game. Although the local stars’ defense improved marginally in game two, the offense remained quiet, only mustering two runs again, as they fell to Texas, 8-2. With the two early losses and respective tie- breaker format, the Hudson stars will unfortunately not qualify to advance to the championship bracket. The offensive star thus far for Hudson has been Mike Simard, who hit solo home runs in each of the first two games. At press time, the stars representing the proud town of Hudson, were en route to the ball park for an 8 p.m. matchup against the Maryland state champs, in game three of the world series. Game four was scheduled for Wednesday evening, with Team New England preparing to face Washington State. Outside the diamond, yet still baseball related, a highlight of the trip was Jacen Hudson’s finals appearance in the skills competition. In a cell phone interview with manager Brian McKinley prior to game three’s first pitch, he noted his players were rebounding well from the disappointing defeats. “Socially, we are having a great time,” noted the upbeat All-Star skipper. Indicative of the off-the-field activities was a tailor- made tour of Camden Yards (home of MLB’s Baltimore Orioles). Along with the tour, a ‘greet and meet’ with the Oriole Hall of Famer, and for whom the world series is named, Cal Ripken, has headed the social itinerary that is allowing the stars to enjoy the experience of their young lives.

AHS Grads Among Burger King Scholarship Winners from New Hampshire

The HAVE IT YOUR WAY® Foundation announced it has awarded

over $1.4 million in scholarships to a total of 1,258 deserving students nationwide as part of the eleventh annual BURGER KING® Scholars Program. Among the winners, 14 students from New Hampshire, including Alvirne High School graduates Ashley Iannaco and Amanda Weis, received scholarship awards of $1,000 in recognition of their outstanding academic achievement, along with other academic and community involvement criteria.

Created in memory of BURGER KING® co-founder, James W. McLamore, the BURGER KING Scholars Program has awarded a total of 15,070 scholarships, representing $15.4 million in awards since the program’s inception in 2000. “In today’s economy, it’s too easy for dreams to be deferred. The BURGER KING® Scholars Program helps to ensure that committed and accomplished students can achieve their dreams. “This year, we have enriched the program by not only giving away a record number of scholarships, but by adding three $50,000 awards and one $25,000 award,” said Ivette Diaz, executive director of the HAVE IT YOUR WAY Foundation. This year, 1,249 students were awarded $1,000 scholarships, and

five students won $5,000 regional scholarships. Also this year, for the first time ever, four major awards were given, including three $50,000 awards and one $25,000 award. This year’s changes attest to the BURGER KING® Scholars Program’s

growing popularity, as well as the large number of deserving students in need of financial help. The field of 31,000 applicants represents a significant increase in the number of applications over last year, when only 3,200 students applied. Scholarship awards help students offset the cost of attending college or a post-secondary vocational/technical school. Students throughout

the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada are eligible for the scholarships. Recipients are selected based on their grade point average, work experience, extracurricular activities and community service. Both

Dog Owners Beware: Selectmen Proclaim: Pick Up the Poop by Doug Robinson

At the request of Hudson Board of Selectmen, the Hudson Police Department has amended the Hudson Dog Ordinance in an attempt to put some teeth into the dog poop problem not only at Benson’s Park, but throughout Hudson’s Parks and Recreation areas, as well as throughout the town of Hudson.

It shall further be the duty of each person who owns, possesses or controls a dog to immediately remove and dispose of any feces left by his/ her dog on any private property neither owned nor occupied by said person, unless said private property owner or occupant agrees otherwise.

2. Duty to possess means of removal/disposal. No person who owns possesses or controls such dog shall appear with such dog on any sidewalk, street, park or other public area without the means of removal of any feces left by such dog. Disposal of such feces shall be in a manner consistent with all applicable laws.

3. Exemption. Compliance with this regulation is not required by any handicapped person who, by reason of his/her handicap is physically unable to comply with this section.

4. Penalties. First Offense: $25; Second Offense: $50; Third Offense: Court action to be taken. In addition, the Hudson Police Department has also recommended the following “conduct” rules:” C. Conduct in off leash areas: Voice Control and Observation on Public Property. Every person who allows a dog to be off-leash in a designated area under section A.(2)d. above shall maintain voice control over the dog and shall keep the dog under observation at all times. The following also shall apply:

1. Dogs must wear current license tags and rabies vaccination tags.

2. Children 10 years or younger are not allowed in the off-leash area.

3. All handlers must be 18 or older. 4. Children 11-17 must be accompanied and supervised by an adult.

5. No female dogs in season (heat) are allowed in the off-leash area.

6. No prong or choke collars on dogs in off-leash area.

7. No animals other than dogs are permitted in off- leash area.

8. No more than two dogs to any one handler at a time in off-leash area.

9. No vicious dogs allowed in the off-leash area. Hudson residents who wish to address the proposed amended ordinance with the Selectmen are invited to attend one of the two proposed public hearing on September 13 and September 27, 7 p.m., at Town Hall.

BOS Chairman Takes a Gander at Geese Gifts by Doug Robinson

Hudson Board of Selectman Chairman Shawn Jasper expressed his gall regarding the Canada geese behavior at Benson Park. It appears that the geese

“have become a real issue,” commented Jasper, as their goose droppings are “destroying” the luscious green grass. “Geese droppings are all over the place,” continued Jasper. He further stated that it was a “hazard for people.”

Hudson Road Agent Kevin

Burns has been gallantly and genuinely working with various agencies to gag the geese’s gestations. He has taken the gamble that he can gently give the gaggle of geese reason to leave their garbage elsewhere. Hopefully, guys and gals who gain entry to Benson Park grounds will be greeted once again with the glamour of green lawns, free from the gift of geese which has garnished the grounds. “There are plenty of bodies of water on that park they can go

to. You can see all the Canada geese at Alvirne Farm” you want continued Jasper. “We build the park in that are for people to enjoy, not for the geese to enjoy.” Do the geese have your gander too? Tweet the Hudson~Litchfield News and let your gander be heard.
