Hudson - Litchfield News | March 9, 2012 - 9 Bass Meets With Alvirne JROTC Students Outdoors Charlie Chalk with
Freshwater Fishing Policy Changes
Congressman Charles F. Bass (NH-02) recently met with students
in the Air Force Junior ROTC program at Alvirne High School during their visit to Capitol Hill. The cadets planned the trip to Washington, DC, and raised the funds on their own. During their time in our nation’s capital, the students and their advisors, Colonel Kevin Grady and Senior Master Sergeant Mike Dubeau, also visited the Library of Congress, the
Pentagon, and Andrews Air Force Base. The Air Force Junior ROTC program has been in existence at Alvirne High School in Hudson since 2004 and is committed to developing citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and community through aerospace science, leadership education, and community service.
Derek Barka for School Board I’d like to start by thanking everyone for the strong support I’ve
received for my school board campaign. There are vast differences between the candidates this year and I encourage everyone to watch the candidates’ event and look into the candidates’ public statements and questionnaire answers. The Litchfield Women’s Club provided this community with a great service by sponsoring the Meet the Candidates Event last Saturday.
but I firmly believe that actually knowing what’s in the budget and what our schools need is another matter entirely.
I’ve been through If you haven’t seen it, you should look for the video
on the town website. A lot of the focus this election has been on the budget. Every budget
can be improved and we need to be vigilant about examining our costs every year. This is common sense. Like most of you, my wife and I are constantly analyzing our budget looking for unneeded items or areas where we can save money. Cutting waste wherever it exists must be a priority, but cutting spending in the name of cutting waste, without examining the details of those cuts, would be counter-productive. The other candidates talk about eliminating budget waste may sound good,
the budget line by line with both the school board and the budget committee. Yes, there are things we can cut, but to call it waste is insincere – what others may call “waste” is actually items contributing directly to education: staff, supplies, maintenance, programs, and other important educational investments. These are not inconsequential items, so let’s not pretend they are. These are costs that have value, but need to be prioritized carefully. We need board members who are familiar with our schools and dedicated to making smart decisions with our administrators.
I know our schools; I know our budget; I know our
challenges and I’m prepared and ready to serve the town of Litchfield. Over the next few years, we’re going to have a number of challenges

including new administrators, new state standards, and declining enrollments. The bitter polarization we have now will not help us navigate these challenges and focus on the education of our students. We must have a board that can effectively work together and solve problems.
I look forward

NH Administrative freshwater fishing rule changes that took effect on January 1: • While anglers are being guided, as defined in RSA 207:1 XII and XIII, and taking freshwater fish by trolling, the number of lines being used for angling must not exceed the total legal number of lines allowed (two per angler), excluding the guide(s). For example, if a guide is taking two clients trolling, the group may fish with up to four lines.
• On the Connecticut River, the daily bag limit for black bass from January 1 to March 31 is now two fish, of which only one bass may be greater than 16 inches. In New Hampshire/Massachusetts border waters, the daily bag limit for black bass from ice-in to ice-out is now two fish, of which only one bass may be greater than 16 inches. • In Dublin Lake (Dublin), the daily bag limit for trout increases from three to five fish.
• Perch Pond (Lisbon) is no longer a designated trout pond, so general fishing regulations now apply: no closed season; ice fishing allowed, with a two-trout bag limit through the ice.
