New EPA Guidelines
The EPA has gone ahead with allowing fuel companies to increase the amount of ethanol found in their gasoline from ten to 15 percent. While this might not sound like a big deal, ethanol increases the acidity of fuel. If you’re the owner of an older boat and motor - and that covers most of us - you may find this new fuel can cause problems. Problems that can range from dissolving older fuel lines to eating away the insides of gas tanks, causing clogging and other serious damage to engines. Those engines can be anywhere from the engine on your favorite boat to your lawnmower. The fuel filter is essential. Even in new engines, however, Volvo Penta’s Richard Kolb says there is sometimes a mysterious gooey substance that will clog fuel filters. Here are some tips for dealing with ethanol, courtesy of BoatUS: • Be ready to change fuel filters more often; • Make sure all your hoses are marked J-1527. Not all hoses are ethanol-compatible.
• Confirm that your boat’s fuel tank will handle the newer ethanol. If not, you may need to replace the tank with another material like aluminum.
• If you’re leaving your boat sitting for any length of time, fill your boat’s tanks to 95 percent of capacity. That allows room for your fuel to breathe, while limiting the space for potential condensation.
Ed Huminick accepts the award for Terry Doyle class of 2004
by S. Aaron Shamshoyan Salem High School held their annual Hall of
Fame Induction Ceremony, honoring six chosen inductees. William Hagen, John Gatsas, Terry Doyle, Tracy Vadala, Whitney Mollica, and William Lavoie made the list The first inductee was William Hagen, was introduced by 2009 Class President Robert Nee. “He was a roll model and a great influence to the students of Salem High,” said Nee. Hagen graduated Salem High School in 1975, and went on to become principal of the school. “Any level success that I have achieved, would not have been possible without the support and guidance of various teams that I have been a member of throughout my life,” said Hagen, adding that he was a high school athlete, later working alongside many coaches beginning his administrative career at the school. Hagen also said serving as Salem High School Principal was the highlight of his career.
Salem coach and teacher, Harold Sachs, introduced the next two inductees, Whitney Mollica, and Tracy Vadala, saying, “I’ve always embraced that concept that you’re better off with multi-sport athletes,” referencing how both of them were involved with various sports. Mollica was the 2005 New Hampshire
Gatorade player of the year, and the class L player of the year. While attending the University of Massachusetts she received the awards of rookie of the year and player of the year. “I’m so proud to represent and be a part of the pride and tradition of Salem High School,” she said. During her high school career, Vadala won
state championships in multiple sports. “I had the pleasure of being part of one state championship during my high school field hockey career,” she said. Unfortunately, Vadala suffered a torn ACL from gymnastics, and was not able to play in the championship game.

Erin Gatsas introduced her father, inductee John Gatsas, as a 20-plus year field hockey coach, along with coaching JV girls basketball and various other sports. “The traits that he possesses have helped mold young individuals into hard working and dedicated athletes,” she said. Coach Gatsas noted the many coaches he
watched and learned from as a young coach, allowing him to use their strengths to coach his own team. He was also very grateful for the opportunity to serve the district with Dr. Johnson. “I’m very proud to be part of the Salem School Family,” he said. Class of 2004 graduate Terry Doyle, was inducted into the Hall of Fame, but because of an athletic commitment to the Chicago White Sox, was unable to attend. Longtime friend, Ed Huminick, accepted the award on Doyle’s behalf. “I first met Terry when he was two or three years old,” he said. Reading a prepared speech by Doyle, and sporting a White Sox baseball cap Doyle sent for Huminick to wear during the speech, he read, “Throughout my life, I’ve been lucky again to have great coaches who were never afraid to take the responsibility of helping us to improve and learn.” The last inductee was William Lavoie,
Woodbury High School graduate class of 1946. Lavoie was involved in athletics, student council, and performing arts during his high school career. After graduation, he went into the army until 1949. He continued on, getting a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of New Hampshire, followed by a master in economics. Lavoie also served on the budget committee and board of selectmen. Accepting the award, Lavoie said, “Later in life you really appreciate what you learned at the school.” All six inductees were invited to Salem’s Homecoming game, where they were also honored.
