Litchfield Troop 11 Participates in Flags on the 48 Memorial Hike

submitted by Janice Hood, Boy Scout Troop 11 Litchfield’s Boy Scout Troop 11 participated in the Flags on the 48 Memorial Hike for the sixth consecutive year. This year, the troop hosted North Twin Mountain (4,761 feet). The group set out from Litchfield at 5:30 a.m. and met at the trailhead off of Route 3 near the town of Twin Mountain in the central region of the White Mountains. The scouts carried a collapsible flag pole and an American flag with them as they made their way to the peak across several river crossings and up some steep terrain. Another group of hikers brought a U.S. Marine flag with them. A color guard raised both flags on an outcrop that was visible through the trees from 12 to 2 p.m. It was quite a sight to see the American colors flying from the other mountaintops in view all at the same time. During this time, a Black Hawk helicopter flew close to the peak and waved to the scouts. That was definitely a highlight and an unique reward for their efforts. Scouts participating in 2011 were Jack Curtin, Jr., Harrison Hidalgo, Michael Hood, Brad Johnson and Matt Lepore accompanied by Rob Johnson, Dale Wright and Dave Hill as adult leaders and several other adult Troop members. Flags on the 48 is a Memorial Hike for those that lost their

lives on September 11, 2001. It started on September 15, 2001, four days after the attacks, when six hikers raised the American flag from the summit of Mount Liberty. The second hike was organized as a grassroots effort on the Appalachian Mountain Club Internet message board. Since its inception, this memorial hike has gained popularity. Groups or individuals offer to host one of the 48 mountains in New Hampshire over 4000 feet in height, and all 48 are staffed. For more information, see http:// Troop 11 participates in many outdoor activities, such as hiking, backpacking and camping in all seasons. The Troop meets at the Litchfield Community Church at 7 p.m. on Monday evenings. For more information, see

Governor’s Statement on the Senate’s Vote to Expand Deadly Force

The NH Association of Chiefs of Police, NH Police Association, NH Sheriffs Association, Department of Safety and Department of Justice all urged Governor Lynch to veto the bill. Governor Lynch issued the following statement in regards to the Senate’s vote to override the veto of SB 88: “Law enforcement officials from across New Hampshire stood united in warning about the dangers of this bill and

how it would compromise public safety by emboldening gangs and criminal activity. Yet lawmakers disregarded the warnings of law enforcement that this bill could compromise public safety.” “I am disappointed that lawmakers did not listen to the men and women who protect the citizens of New Hampshire every day.”

Litchfield Man Fires Gun, Misses Target

On September 17, the Litchfield police were dispatched to a residence on High Plain Avenue to investigate a broken window.

Corson was scheduled for arraignment in Merrimack District Court on September 19. The Litchfield Police Department is asking for

the publics’ help in locating the vehicle, described as a dark colored Chevrolet pickup truck with either an extended or crew cab with dual wheel. If you have any information, contact the Litchfield Police Department at 424-4047.
