“Thumbs down - BIG thumbs down to the person complaining about Windham officials and their tattoos. Grow up? Really? Here we are, in 2011, and you’re so bigoted that you feel the need to berate people for their ink? I think perhaps it’s you who needs to grow up because, in this day and age, if tattoos still offend you at this level then you’re likely suffering from a terminal case of snobbery and intolerance. Perhaps you should just stay at home because, let’s face it, tattoos and piercings are visible in every single business you patronize. In fact, I’m betting that, somewhere in your own family, there’s a tattoo or two. Get over it.”

“Thumbs up to the great

crew at the Pelham Recycling & Transfer station. Always a smile and helping hand, love the new layout makes everything so much easier!”

“Thumbs down---to the crew

who paved Windham Road in Pelham, the road is six inches higher than my driveway now and every time I leave home I scrape the bottom underside of my car. Looks like amatures did the job, sloppy and messy!!! This is going to make snowplowing hazardous in my driveway......not a happy home owner!”

“Thumbs down to Massport.

When I think of Massport it reminds me of 911, the big dig and all the tragedy both caused. There are many more. I think of failed communications. What we do not need is a failed playbook on how to communicate. This playbook also includes how to talk on your cell phone at town meetings, how to ignore residents in the audience, how to tweet and how to vote NO. Knowing tech stuff from a failed system is not qualifications to lead up a campaign to communicate in Pelham, NH. You all had years to communicate, and you failed. Mr. Gleason your record speaks for itself, no building named after you. Leave the board again and go away. Pelham is tired of corruption. Look at all of your records and what you have done. All of you should be ashamed, all have failed miserably at communication. We need a

“Thumbs down to the Pelham Highway Department for tarring Sherburne Road this past Friday. I was unaware, headed out for lunch, then on my way back I was told I could NOT go back down Sherburne Road where I live and they told me to take the 5th road on the right called Hill Road. Well, Hill Road?? There is about 8 of them. I ended up causing my husband to be 1/2 late for work and was getting back late for work along with a lot of frustration. Maybe next time you can let us know roadwork will be happening and you are not allowed on your road AFTER you have driven down it!”

“Thumbs down to the absentee Pelham

in Windham. They have a road race out in the middle of Ministera Road on the corner of Spruce Road on a hair-pin turn. I don’t know what you people are thinking.”

“Thumbs down to the Town of Windham for

allowing them to have this event, after the town of Windham was called and the Police Dept. was called. I’ve seen children as young as 7 running down 111A and other main roads with no supervision. This ain’t the Boston Marathon. You guys should do that in a safer area.”

Pelham Razorbacks Football Game Report

submitted by Andy Vanti Pelham Razorbacks Fifth Grade: Pelham Razorback 27, Nashua Elks 6 The Fifth Grade Pelham Razorbacks opened up the 2011 season ready to defend their 2010 State and New England Championship titles. Facing a hungry and aggressive Nashua Elks squad, the two teams traded field position until late in the 1st quarter as Tommy Emrick has the first of six interceptions for the Razorbacks this day. Ryan Marotta followed strong blocking from Charlie Beneze, Nathan Binette, Manny Baisley and Stevie Doe for a 30-yard touchdown run down the right side line for a 6-0 lead. On the first Elks play of the second quarter, the Razorbacks

defense took over by putting tenacious pressure on the quarterback forcing an interception by Blake Woekel who returned it 20 yards. After the Elks defense held the Razorbacks out of the end zone, once again it was the Razorbacks defense lead by Brett Lindsay and AJ Caggianelli who were in the backfield all day and forced an Elks fumble that was recovered by Sean McAdam. Both defenses controlled the game with neither team able to generate much offense and once again the Razorbacks forced a turnover as Cam Homsey batted a ball at the line of scrimmage right to Caggianelli for another Razorbacks interception. Caggianelli was not finished as he took a sweep down the right sideline set up by crushing blocks from Noah Lynch and Deven “LT” Debay for a touchdown. Ryan Marotta then followed Owen Haskins, Woekel, Emrick and Brandan Mercier in for the conversion. Another Razorback interception, this time by Robbie Petrillo made sure the Elks stayed off the scoreboard and a 13-0 Razorback lead heading into halftime. The second half was

more defense as Tyler Blunt, Thalan Berger and Jacoby Pratt made key stops of the Elks. Then it was Cody Stevens, Debay and Binette breaking off long runs setting up a 1-yard touchdown by Homsey. Stevens converted the extra two points as he boomed one through the updates for a very rare kicking two-pointer. Give the Elks credit as they marched down field and put one into the endzone to make the score 21-6. Woekel made sure that score would be matched as he followed great blocks from Garrett Hitchens and Berger for a 27-6 Razorback lead that was the eventual final score. The only thing left were the fifth and sixth interceptions of the day by Marotta and then Stevens who made a one-handed grab that he almost took all the way in for a touchdown.

Thumbs Up? Thumbs Down? “We want to be your Mechanic”

“Thumbs down to the thumbs downer’s who have nothing better to complain about than the “Smokers of New Hampshire”. Even though I don’t smoke in my car, the authorities can’t arrest us for smoking in them. I, like you, am disgusted by littering period. What about all the beer cans and plastic water bottles that are tossed out car windows? I clean up my neighborhood by picking up these items. Instead of complaining, clean your neighborhood. And a thumbs down to the person who wrote that all businesses should not allow smoking outside their facilities. Smokers have been banned from the inside and now you want us banned from the outside too? “Innocent Patrons” as you put it should decide not to go to those businesses that allow smoking outside their establishment. Better yet why don’t you just stay home.”

“Thumbs down to the

Wolverine parent who made all other Wolverines and parents wait a half hour for you and your 2 children to show up for pictures. You made an entire team wait for you. How rude.”

“Thumbs down to our neighbor in our small

neighborhood. He thinks it is okay to wear dark gray cut off shorts and not wear underwear, everyday. Bad taste. Show you care and use underwear. Thank you.”

“Thumbs down to Pine Terrace Association

“Thumbs up to Jay and Michelle Shattuck at Countrybrook Farms to thank them for their generosity. They will have my business for all the support they give to the community and for our kids. Thank you so much, Jay and Michelle. You guys rock!”

“Thumbs up. If you want a plan that the voters will support, then fix the high school problem on that high school site. We built a new high school back in 1974 and have invested little to no money in all those years. 15 million dollars will go a long way to improve the learning environment for our high school students. And if you like that idea of tuitioning out of town, feel free to each of the families that likes that plan, but out of their own pockets that tuition money should come from.”

“Thumbs down to Mr. Hardy and his half attempt at showing interest. ‘If the High School adjoining property is still for sale in March, we’ll make an attempt to purchase.’ Don’t forget, Mr. Hardy, no eminent domain! Oh, the games you play. Guess what, we’re on to all of them.”

“Thumbs down to the person that put in the thumbs column on Friday that the Pelham Landscaping owner would pull off to the side of the road to use his cell phone. It’s a sad thing today when people complain about people driving and texting and talking and not paying attention to the road, and I actually pull over on a state road and use the phone, and I’m a bad person and I’m on the side of the road painting my nails. It’s one of the saddest things that I’ve ever seen in the thumbs up/thumbs down. Safety is an issue! Shame on the person who wrote that.”

“Thumbs down to the person who wrote in

about Pelham Landscaping for pulling over on a state road to use his cell phone instead of driving. I guess being safe and parking to use a phone instead of driving means nothing to some people. You have nothing better to do than complain. Get a job and stop staring out your windows at who’s parking across the street.”

“Thumbs down to the National Media for not reporting the terrorist acts of the Long Shoreman’s Union in Washington State in which they took security guards prisoner and destroyed public property.

“Thumbs up to President Obama. He finally said something bright, that kids shouldn’t go to school in trailers. How true, how true.”

Justin Todd (#45) and Case Foster (#14) zero in on a Rams running back

Razorbacks’ home opener with their strong, up the middle running game and tenacious defense. The Sixth Grade Razorbacks, however,

answered the bell when QB Tyler Longo connected with Tyler Mercier early in the first quarter for the first touchdown of the game. The Razorbacks offense continued to roll as Brandon O’Grady, Freddy Stamatatos and Zach DeBay all added touchdown runs behind excellent blocking. Thanks to the crushing kick out block from Diggy Lawson, Liam O’Connell swept into the endzone for the last touchdown of the game and helping the Razorbacks score a 33-0 victory. Robert “Too Tall” Ryan, Jack “Bear” Moro, Joey “Cheech” Micciche, Case Foster and Jake Kirane provided the punch up front and opened holes all afternoon. The Razorbacks stingy defense was anchored by the strong play of Derek Cook, Kameron Priestley, Justin Todd, Royce Belsky and Tyler Folsom.

Next up for the sixth graders is Nashua PAL this coming Sunday, September 18, in Pelham.
