Te Closure of U.S. Oil Refineries

I recently wrote a letter on exported fuels by U.S. oil companies who reap higher prices paid overseas. Another reason for our high gasoline prices is the closure of U.S. oil

refineries, and the movement of our oil overseas to foreign refineries, “Sunoco is closing two refineries in July 2012 in Philadelphia and Marcus Hook, PA. Conoco Phillips announced the closing of two plants in Trainer, PA and Bayway, NJ, and is closing its facility in Alaska. Hess is closing the third largest U.S. oil refinery, laying off 2,000 workers and impacting 950 contractors.”

Te oil companies, with profits of tens of billions of dollars each year,

are closing U.S. refineries due to environmental and other government regulations and union demands. Refineries are being built in Columbia, Mexico and Brazil due to low construction and operating costs. Plus our government unconsciously promotes this construction by providing foreign aid to the countries. Hopefully, it isn’t too late for our government and the unions to wake up

and evaluate the impact of their policies and decisions on the oil refining industry. Otherwise we will continue to see rising fuel prices that could reach historic highs, including gasoline at or above $5 per gallon.

Re-Electing Obama is the First Step in the Right Direction

I became a strong advocate for Health Care Reform since witnessing how

many New Hampshire senior citizens have to regularly choose between groceries and prescription drugs. By closing the “doughnut hole” in the Medicare Prescription Drug Plan, President Barack Obama has helped make it less likely that our parents and grandparents have to make this choice. As a result of the “Affordable Care Act”, the health care law enacted by President Obama, more than 2.6 million seniors have saved over $550 each on their prescription drugs and by 2020, the “doughnut hole” will be history. I have become a member of the New Hampshire Steering Committee to

re-elect President Obama because he not only enacted the “Affordable Care Act” but also because he has implemented the right steps to get us out of the painful economic environment he inherited. When President Obama took office, our economy was loosing 750,000 jobs per month (that is more than half of the New Hampshire population). As a result of the policies he has enacted, the economy has grown for more than 20 months. While achieving this growth, he has strengthened the Middle Class, cut taxes for 95 percent of working New Hampshire families and small businesses, and refocused our national security priorities. When it comes to national security, President

Obama has killed Osama Bin-Laden, decimated Al-Qaeda, and has effectively gotten us out of Iraq. But there still remains a lot to do and we need a leader. President Obama is that leader. He is the right choice to lead our nation as it faces continuing economic, political and military challenges.

I write this letter regretfully after hearing the announcement that Ronda

Gregg will be retiring as the Director of Special Services from the Litchfield School District at the end of this school year. I have worked closely alongside Ronda for the past nine years and have never worked with anyone that has been more energetic, hard-working and ethical, while constantly striving toward the betterment of education and services provided to the children of Litchfield. In Ronda’s time in Litchfield, she has created programs in each school to

Hudson Neighborhood Plagued by Thefts, Prowlers

submitted by Hudson Police Department On Wednesday, April 25, at approximately 12:30 a.m., Officer Scott Macdonald from the Hudson Police Department observed four suspicious subjects in the area of Lions Avenue and Adelaide Street. As Officer Macdonald was turning around in an effort to speak with the individuals, they disappeared from view. Simultaneously, a citizen on Saven Street called the Hudson Police Department to report her car alarm had gone off, and that she had observed a juvenile subject fleeing from the scene. K-9 handler Officer James

Connor, Officer Michael Davis, Officer Eric Ferreira and Officer Jason Downey responded to assist in searching for the subjects. Officer Macdonald located a male subject hiding in a portable garage on Lions Avenue. The subject was identified as

Ryan Baldwin, 21, of Nashua. Baldwin was arrested and charged with Resisting Arrest or Detention, Prowling, and Criminal Trespass. Baldwin refused the services of the Bail Commissioner and was scheduled for arraignment for April 25 at the 9th Circuit Court in Nashua.

A female juvenile was also located in the area of Blackstone Drive and taken into protective custody. Two other subjects were

involved, but were not located as of this press release. The Hudson Police Department is asking the residents in the area of Adelaide Street and surrounding streets to check their vehicles for stolen articles. Anyone missing articles from

their vehicles are encouraged to contact the Hudson Police Department at 886-6011.

aid the most challenged students and put into place many initiatives that have benefited special needs students as well as typical students, including the hiring of a school social worker and transition specialist, MAPS/NWEA testing, the Senior Mentor Program, and PBIS at Litchfield Middle School. Tis is just a small sample of the initiatives that she has been responsible for over the past nine years. Te Litchfield School District does not have Special Education

Coordinators in each building as do many other districts, nor do we have an Assistant Special Services Director. Ronda has, therefore, been present in each school at any meetings that require an administrator knowledgeable in special education and has been available for all parents and staff, regular education or special education, with any questions or issues that have arisen. Her door has always been open to any staff member or parent that should stop by. With Ronda’s retirement, the Litchfield School District is losing a tireless

advocate for its children. I would like to join with my colleagues in the special education department, as well as the SAU office, to wish Ronda well in her retirement. She will be missed. She is well respected in the area of Special Education in the state of New Hampshire, and I know that she will continue to work for the well being of children in some capacity in the years ahead.
