Nadeau is so perplexed with the people’s problem of pet owners
not picking up the poop; he pronounced his purview that there may possibly be a need for special poop patrols. The purpose of the poop patrol personnel would be to pursue those pet owners who purposefully do not pick up their pet’s poop. The un-picked up poop has the passages and pathways of the park making them difficult to pass.
He continued to comment that the pet poop problem also permeates the pond areas of Hudson too, making the programs at the ponds problematic. “Maybe we need to ask the Animal Control Officer to patrol the park,” continued Nadeau. Unfortunately, even with this passionate please the one or two “bad apples” that do not pick up their pet’s poop have presented Hudson’s public which a public problem. “Please clean up after them,” commented Nadeau, at the July 26 Board of Selectmen’s meeting. Hopefully, the public will personally police the parks and ponds, and pounce on those pet owners who do not pick up their pet’s poop.
During the September 13 Board of Selectmen meeting, people challenged the proposed police department’s proposed new poop
polices. Persons of pet personalities pleaded and presented both BOS and police with problems with the proposed new law. People spoke of perceived problems with leash length requirements, definitions of handicap, and referred to the wording of the new ordinance as being “unclear and subjective.” What defines the “immediate” disposal of dog waste commented one resident, and then continued to question the disposal of that waste. “What if the dog has diarrhea and goes on concrete? Police personnel provided pertinent information regarding the 6- foot lease proposal stating that pets playing on a lease in excess of 6 feet provide more opportunity for problems for the public. The leashing of police dogs was questioned. Proper wording of those in wheelchairs was questioned. Exacerbated Selectman Jasper simply stated, “If you cannot clean up after your dog, it should not be on public property.” The public is permitted to promote their personal philosophies at the September 27 meeting of the BOS regarding their personal preferences for the proposed changes to Hudson’s ordinance “dogs and other Animals.”

Women’s Club (LWC) invited graphic art students in Paula Barry’s class at Campbell High School (CHS) to create a new logo with the focus on community, scholarship and friendship. After reviewing many potential logos, LWC members chose a design created by Alex Puchalski, a recent CHS grad. Alex was a graphic arts student under the direction of
CHS teacher Paula Barry, who refined his initial design to its present state. A big thanks to both Alex and Ms. Barry for their great work in creating LWC’s new logo. A $25 iTunes gift card has been given to Alex in appreciation of his design work and a gift to Paula Barry as well from LWC to thank her for allowing her students to participate this ‘real world’ logo project and her time in bringing the logo to its current look.
