the class before their performance.
As in other years, after an opening Duet by brother and sister Michaella and Adrian Niceforo, the youngest students began playing their titles. Quietly and simply each student approached the piano on stage, sat and played their piece, stood, bowed to the audience and returned to their seat. Students have one lesson a week for half an hour but are required to practice at home or at the
school on a daily basis. This year’s performers were Michaella Niceforo, Adrian Niceforo, Liam Lena, Delia Sullivan, Alexis Martin, Julia Mendes, Connor Duggan, Christopher DeISesto, Addie Simoneau, Hayden Shattuck, Sahana Darbhamulla, Matthew Peters, Kathleen Lordan, Brigid Sullivan, Samantha Van Seters, Aidan Lena, Ian Davis, James Lawrence,

Tompkins Memorial Field Gets Another First Down
by Len Lathrop The Zachary Memorial fi eld took another step
forward on Monday when the DEA and EPA agreed that it was feasible to abate the asbestos at the Industrial Ave site by burying the material under the parking area on the site. The seats at the table of the Buxton Community
Development room at Hudson Town Hall were full for this planning meeting. Nobis Engineering began the meeting by presenting the fi ndings of the most recent testing completed in March. They outlined where the contamination was and its depth. The type of material was explained and a mathematical calculation provided that there is 6,480 cubic feet of asbestos that will be needed to be abated. After the presentation Alan Peterson of the Environmental Protection Agency in conjunction with Keith Dubois of the New
Hampshire DES, turned the discussion over to George Naslas and Duane Himes of Weston & Sampson Engineers Company who are the project engineers for the formulation of the plans and permits to move the asbestos to under the parking lot. The mitigation projects will be funded by the Regional Economic Development Center, who will supervise the engineering, permitting and the actual burying of the material. It is projected that all plans and permits could be in place to start the work this fall but the weather constrains the work as once you start it has to be completed before snowfall. For those of you not familiar with the Tompkins Memorial Field project it is primarily a football complex for the Hudson Litchfi eld Football and Cheer Association. Zachary Tompkins was
a wonderful young lad who was taken from us roughly two years ago unexpectedly. The community has rallied around his vision that is highlighted by a plate that Zachary made just two weeks before his death that outlined a fi eld for his team, the Bears, to the play on. Working with the town of Hudson, a group of volunteers formed a non-profi t corporation to fi nd land and build Zach’s dream. A 10-area lot located on Industrial Avenue was sited for the fi eld and a 25-year lease for this land was obtained from the town. The fi eld has been engineered and now with the mitigating testing completed, remedial action plans and approvals from the state will be fi led. The estimated timeframe for construction to start is late
Selectman Poop-Dee-Dooped About Benson Park Poop
by Doug Robinson Pet poop problems at Benson Park have Hudson Selectmen poop- dee-dooped as to how to get a hand around the perplexing piles of poop.
While they all agree that 95 percent of the pet owners who do
visit Benson Park, there are those few who continue to feel privileged that park rules do not apply to them. In Jana McMillan’s, Hudson’s Animal Control Offi cer, written report to the Board of Selectman regarding her investigation, she
stated, “There is dog waste being left in the park. The amount of waste is not excessive according to the people visiting the park. The majority of the dog people are picking up waste.” However, she did fi nd evidence that poop had not been picked up. According to Selectman Ben Nadeau, there are one or two “bad apples” that do not pick up their pet’s poop. “Please clean up after them.” The Board of Selectmen has asked the public to assist policing the park for who are not poop picker-uppers.
Hudson Kid Has a National Impact
submitted by Jeff Zuccaro Hudson’s own Chris Zuccaro helped captain his New Hampshire Junior Monarchs to its fi rst USA Hockey Junior B National
Championship. The Monarchs beat the Mass Maple Leafs 4-1 in the championship game in Foxboro Mass on Monday, March 12.

This was Chris’s second year with the Monarchs and his second attempt at a national title. Last year his team lost in double overtime 3-2 making this win that much sweeter for him. Prior to winning the national title his team was successful in capturing the Empire Junior Hockey league championship. Chris better known for his penalty killing, shot blocking, and overall defensive zone play had a very impressive showing on offensive this year totaling 56 points with 25 goals and 31 assists. Chris a senior at Alvirne will be moving on to the next level of Junior Hockey next fall while continuing his education taking college courses with hopes of hooking on with a D1/ D3 College Hockey program in the near future.

submitted by Rita Souza
Rita Souza, LE, CPE, in conjunction with the American Electrology Association, is proud to announce the designation of April as Electrology Awareness Month. “The time has come!” says Ms. Souza. “Electrolysis is taking the spotlight as the one and only permanent hair-removal method that really works! Other hair-removal methods have gotten a lot of attention in recent years, but electrologists are being called upon to pick up where other methods have left off. This is because electrolysis is effective on all skin and hair types. It is the perfect solution for everyone: men, women, and teens! With state- of-the art equipment and the highest practice protocols, clients can rest assured that they will receive optimal results in a comfortable, safe environment.”

Some people may be surprised to hear that, according to the FDA, electrolysis is still the only proven treatment for permanent hair removal. The fact is, electrolysis has passed the test of time and remains the single, best method available for achieving hair-free skin.
Be sure to look for a licensed and Certifi ed Professional Electrologist (CPE) to help you achieve the look you want. You’ll not only look good, you’ll feel more confi dent as your image improves.

spring of next year. Hopefully as you pass the fi eld you will see the men in white suits moving the asbestos. This project is funded by the regional economic development Council who is a conduit for Federal Brownfi eld Mitigation Funds. While this may sound like a lot of red tape, Monday’s meeting was signifi cant for those working on the fi elds. Present were staff members from the Town of Hudson including Selectmen Maddox and Coutu, two who have had helped in getting this fi eld in place.
