Walk on the Wild Side - Part Two In my thoughts last week on a previous Tumbs
Down regarding not walking on the sidewalks, but in the breakdown/parking lane or on the shoulder; I forgot an important point. Te author of that Tumbs Down asked if I was trying to get killed, which of course is a ridiculous suggestion anyway; but in the event I would get hit by a vehicle, it would be the fault of the driver. Most likely such a situation would occur because the driver was texting, which is illegal now in NH or they were yakking away on the cell phone; which is insane and dangerous behavior. As I am out for my stroll off the sidewalk, I do get to see how many vehicles pass by me, with the drivers texting when its illegal or yakking away while trying to light a cigarette or something else. Believe me, when I see such dangerous behavior, I do get up on the sidewalk or behind a telephone pole.

Tank You Hudson Voters I would like to thank the residents, my friends, of
Hudson for the overwhelming support and confidence you have shown to me by electing me as your Town Treasurer on March 13. I have been serving the residents with different hats for 40-plus years and have enjoyed every part of it. While I have spent my whole life in Hudson and have seen many changes, the one thing that hasn’t changed is it remains the best place to live.
Gary J. Rodgers, Town Treasurer Elect – Hudson
Tank You to the Voters of Hudson Democracy in this town is well and alive. We have
suffered greatly from the bullying tactics in regards to the car cover issue on Highland Street. It will be greatly missed in inclement weather. My health was affected and my mobility is not getting better. Tis family had
hope in the people of Hudson. Mr. Nadeau has been a big support for this family. He endured al lot during his first term. He surely will be stronger and wiser. I will remain the “Screamin’ Eagle!” Tank you voters of Hudson.
R. Lemieux - Hudson Tough Times at Town Hall Recently I had the displeasure of reporting to Town
Hall. Te ladies at the clerk’s office kindly directed me to the Community Development office as I was there for permission to erect two professionally printed lawn signs (18”x12”). Te first person I had contact with was Julie, Administrative Aide. She instructed me to complete a form, which seemed odd to me, as it had nothing to do with special events. It was pertaining to LED signs and electrical signs and banner signs. Nothing on the form was applicable and when I got to the end the only thing I was able to fill in was my name. On the last page was the fee schedule for such signs, which listed a $50 fee. I asked Julie if this was the right form and she assured me it was. I questioned the fees and she stood her ground, fully expecting me to write her a $100 check for this. Ten I asked her to confirm that all of the other signs placed around town were subject to the same fees, such as all of the BOS candidate signs for instance. She told me that they were different and I asked for her to elaborate. She could not provide me with this information and requested the Zoning Administrator speak to me. She explained to him why I was there and asked about the fee and he told me he would have to look it up. Within no time Mr. Oleksak was back. He read me Chapter 334, Article XII, 334-60B that states: “Except as noted in § 334-65, no off-premises advertising signs are permitted in any district.” He then explained that off-premises also means out of town. Which I would like to see defined under 334-59, because that’s subject to interpretation. At that point Mr. Oleksak stated my sign didn’t belong in Hudson, because the
special event I was advertising for was happening in Hollis (and apparently he doesn’t want Hudson people to know about it). I explained to him that there are several Hudson businesses/residents participating in the event. After giving no thought to what I was saying Mr. Oleksak proceeded to read aloud Chapter 334, Article XII, 334-58A which he loved, reads: “No sign shall be erected or affixed to any building exterior or placed freestanding on any premises, public or private roadways or rights-of-way or altered or moved without a permit issued by the Building Inspector and approved by Zoning Administrator …” And then he looked at me (with his cape blowing in the breeze and his eyes glaring through his villain mask) and said. “Tat’s me [Zoning Administrator] and I’m not approving it!” I attended the BOS meeting that very night to speak during public input and appeal to them for a matter in which they have authority on. Which apparently they do not have any authority because they referred me to the Zoning Board. I find this to be completely ridiculous. Te town makes it impossible for citizens and business owners to advertise in general. While researching this towns sign ordinances, I’ve found that local stores are being restricted on flyers they tape to their own windows and doors. Tey are forbidden from having any scrolling messages on their electronic signs or blinking. Tey cannot have sidewalk or portable signs. Tey cannot have any off-premise signs. When do we say enough is enough? I encourage you all to attend a meeting and speak to this at public input. It would be worthwhile to watch the BOS meeting for March 13 where you can see first hand how they don’t even know what the ordinances are. Tis is something that they do have control of and we can demand some leniency. In this economy where small businesses are still struggling to keep their doors open, how does this help anyone? Especially when I drive down a public roadway and my commute is littered in both directions with campaign signs on town property nonetheless.

Located in the Village Green on Route 111 33 Indian Rock Road, Windham, NH
Police and Fire Departments responded to Route 111 by the west entrance to Lawrence Road for a two motor vehicle collision. Upon arrival officers found two vehicles pinned together in the center turn lane/painted island area adjacent to Lawrence Road. A 16-year-old female from Londonderry was trapped inside her 2002 Kia Spectra. The other vehicle involved was a 2011 Infinity driven by Todd Thamer of Windham. The Hudson Fire Department was able to extricate the 16 year old from her vehicle and she was transported to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center in Nashua with unknown injuries. Thamer was uninjured in the collision. It appears the Kia was entering Route 111 from Lawrence Road and failed to yield to the Infinity. The Infinity struck the Kia in the driver’s side door. There was a minimal impact on traffic as Route 111 was only closed for a few minutes while the vehicles were towed from the scene.
