in the Windham High School community who wishes to give the sport a try. If you are interested but do not have equipment of your own you are welcome to participate using the equipment that was generously donated to the team by Proline Archery. If you come to an archery practice you will not regret it, and archery is something that will last you a lifetime. The oldest competitors for the United States in the last Olympics were Butch Johnson and Janet Dykeman, both incredibly skilled archers. Butch Johnson is nearly 60 years old and may compete in the 2012 Olympics. Come and discover something completely different than the traditional sports associated with high schools. You will be part of a team that is not only on its way to becoming successful, but has strong bonds that are always growing. During practices the team shows their perseverance to improve while having an enjoyable experience and creating priceless memories. There is nothing more satisfying than shooting holes through a copy of a bad test, defeating a zombie (or, rather, a poster of a zombie), or popping a balloon with the perfect shot. Once you feel the exhilaration of a powerful shot and the

ARNNE also needs funds to offset the cost of surgery for Charlie the Great Dane. Charlie had swallowed two stuffed animals and needed emergency surgery. His family could not afford cost, and chose to have him euthanized. ARNNE paid for the surgery and saved Charlie, who now has a new home. Only 20 percent of the funds have been raised to cover the cost so far. Visit http://arnne.chipin.com/charlie-the-great-dane
to contribute to the fund. The next Pet Adoption Day will be Saturday, April 28, at the Congregational Church in Pelham. For more information about ARNNE and view the dogs available, visit www.arnne.org

their local representatives regarding the issue. In Pelham, residents were just beginning to contact their representatives when the vote was already over. The vote was taken early in the afternoon on Wednesday, March 28. House Deputy Majority Leader Shawn Jasper, R-Hudson, says the redistricting plan is “Not an ideal situation as far as Pelham’s concerned and I wish we could have found a way to do it but it’s certainly better than having a three-town district,” Jasper said Thursday. Pelham residents disagree, questioning why the delegation
would support the override. Others are urging the town to join in any lawsuit that may arise challenging the redistricting. Pelham’s sole representative Shaun Doherty stated, “The vote on redistricting happened this morning, without prior notice. The Governor’s veto was overridden by the House and the proposed plan that has Pelham joined with Hudson prevailed.” “I fi nd it very disappointing that the other members from our district chose to side with the Speaker over their constituents. This is a constitutional issue, not partisan issue. There shouldn’t have been any worry about losing Republican seats. Pelham is considered a “Tier 1” Republican town by state-wide candidates, meaning that we constantly vote by about a 20 percent margin for the Republican candidate. Residents of Pelham from both parties should be upset with this redistricting plan.” School Board Chair Brian Carton issued a warning regarding the
lack of representation in the Legislature. “Let’s look at this redistricting plan in conjunction with the proposed constitutional amendment(s) on educational funding. If either CACR12 or CACR8 pass, then the legislature alone will determine the amount and the distribution methodology for state aid for education. That’s the money that the state currently provides to towns to help fund school costs on an annual basis. The amendments seek to negate the Claremont decision by constitutionally eliminating the Supreme Court’s ability to weigh in on school funding. In recent years, Pelham has received about a $3.5 million net gain on state aid dollars.” Carton continued, “Several weeks ago, I had the opportunity to hear both Speaker O’Brien and Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley speak about these amendments. O’Brien plainly stated his ‘caucus’
fi rmly believes that the proper source for school funding is local real estate taxes - because if you own real estate you have wealth.” “Should one of these amendments pass, the overall amount of state aid would be reduced ... should an amendment pass, the distribution of state aid would, in the end, likely be infl uenced to some degree ‘by representation.’ Meaning no voice, no money.” Pelham is currently represented by 13 members (District 27 Hudson, Litchfi eld, & Pelham). This is the results of the roll call vote: District 27 Reps who voted to sustain the Governor’s veto (Against the redistricting plan) Rep. Shaun Doherty District 27 Reps who voted to overturn the Governor’s veto (For redistricting plan) Rep. Ralph Boehm Rep. Randall Brownrigg Rep. Lars Christiansen Rep. Bob Haefner Rep. Shawn Jasper Rep. George Lambert Rep. Jonathan Maltz Rep. Jordan Ulery Rep. Lynne Ober Rep. Russell Ober Rep. Andy Renzulo District 27 Reps who were excused or absent Rep. Laura Gandia
In 2006, New Hampshire voters overwhelmingly approved an amendment to the state constitution to ensure that communities with enough population - 3,291 residents - “shall have its own district of one or more representative seats.” For the past few months, the battle regarding redistricting
has raged on and Pelham has been one of the casualties. The redistricting plan denies 59 of these towns its own representative. Pelham is among these towns, which has suffi cient population to support four representatives.
Although there is discussion among various groups regarding a lawsuit, no organization has fi led with the courts yet.
World Health- continued from front page
WHO operates in an increasingly complex and rapidly changing landscape. The boundaries of public health action have become blurred, extending into other sectors that infl uence health opportunities and outcomes. WHO responds to these challenges using a six-point agenda. The six points address two health objectives, two strategic needs, and two operational approaches. The overall performance of WHO will be measured by the impact of its work on women’s health and health in Africa 1. Promoting development 2. Fostering health security 3. Strengthening health system 4. Harnessing research, information and evidence

All countries that are members of the United Nations may become members of WHO by accepting its Constitution. Other countries may be admitted as members when their application has been approved by a simple majority vote of the World Health Assembly. Territories that are not responsible for the conduct of their international relations may be admitted as Associate Members upon application made on their behalf by the Member or other authority responsible for their international relations. Members of WHO are grouped according to regional distribution (194 Member States).
