Driver Flees Police, Crashes and is Hospitalized

submitted by Hudson Police Department On October 1 at approximately 1:50 a.m. officers from the Hudson Police Department attempted to stop a 2001 Chevy Blazer for erratic operation in the area of Ferry Street and Library Street. The Blazer fled from the officers who lost contact with it. The Blazer was spotted minutes later by another Hudson officer in the area of Barretts Hill Road. The officer attempted to stop the Blazer and once again the Blazer fled. The Blazer traveled down Barretts Hill Road at a high rate of speed where it lost control and struck several trees. The driver and sole occupant of the Blazer was identified as Seth Adeboi, 26, of Litchfield.

Adeboi sustained serious head and chest injuries in the

crash. He is being treated at St. Joseph’s Hospital. He was arrested at the scene on various charges including Disobeying a Police Officer and Aggravated DWI. The incident is under investigation by the Hudson Police Department. The crash is being investigated with assistance from the Londonderry Police Department’s crash investigation team. Further charges may be forthcoming following the investigation. Barrett’s Hill Road was closed to through traffic for several hours while the investigation went on.

It all began with ”plaguey Ike Partington” (1850s) by B.P. Shillaber and A Story of a Bad Boy (1869) by Thomas Bailey Aldrich. Boys are born to be bad, the theory goes, and must fight and fail their way to manhood. J. Dennis Robinson tracks the origins of the genre that gave us Dennis the Menace and Bart Simpson.

The living history portion of the program is followed by a colorful PowerPoint presentation, chronicling the dissent among fellow puritans after they reached Massachusetts, focusing on the anger directed at William Vassall, Ann’s husband, who was despised by minister and magistrate alike for his liberal ideas about civil liberty and religion. Linda Palmer portrays Ann Vassall in this living history program. 1 p.m. Bethlehem Library, 2155 Main Street. (603) 882-4861. October 22: Of Musick & Astronomy: The Life & Times of Sir William Herschel, Unity Center, NH.

He gave Caroline full and public credit for her work in a time when recognition for female scientists was rare. Harpsichordist, astronomer, and historical re-enactor R.P.

The structure and tone of the presentation reflect the same inventive and experimental atmosphere of early 20th century literature and art that influenced Cummings himself.
