Hudson Selectmen Authorize the Purchase of New Rifl es for Police
by Michael Linehan The Hudson Board of Selectman voted unanimously to authorize the purchase of 14 Sig Sauer shot guns to replace the 10 Colt AR-15 shot guns currently in use. The AR-15s are ten years old. As explained by Captain Robert Tousignant, the 10 current Colt rifl es would be traded in for 14 Sig Sauer rifl es equipped with LED light attachments made by Insight Technology, Inc. Both Sig Sauer and Insight are companies based in New Hampshire. The rifl es will be installed in each one of the department’s marked cruisers. Tousignant explained that a fund to was created several years ago, to hold money for the purpose of replacing police issued weapons when they got old. Tousignant said the department trading the old weapons in at competitive prices. “We’re getting top dollar for our trades,” Tousignant added that

each weapon’s trade in value is between $650 and $675. Each new rifl e costs about $1,100, with the trade in, each weapon will cost $707, Tousignant said. Tousignant said the new rifl es will be easier to maintain, as they are piston driven. The AR-15 Bullets and shells are expelled through a gas explosion. The explosion simultaneously propels the bullet, pushes the shell and loads another bullet in the chamber to allow for rapid fi re. Unfortunately, the gas builds up, requiring frequent cleaning to avoid possible misfi res. The new rifl es are piston driven, meaning the gas explosion still takes place, but it is a much cleaner process. The gas sets off a piston that then drives all the mechanical features. The piston driven rifl es do not cause as much of a build up, and therefore, there is less of a risk for backfi ring. Selectmen Ted Luszey asked if the
department will have to perform any modifi cations to the rifl e racks already on the cruisers to accommodate the fi rearms. Tousignant answered that they did not, and in fact, the new rifl es will be easier to maneuver in and out of the cruisers. Selectman Richard Maddox asked if the LED lights were part of the package. Tousignant answered yes, and that they will be an invaluable asset to the offi cers if the rifl es need to be used in any situation. The LED lights are standard of the weapons, and are activated when an offi cer applies pressure to a specifi c area on the weapon. The total cost for the rifl es came in just under $12,00, at $11,916.62. Selectman Maddox made the motion to authorize the purchase, with Luszey seconding. The motion passed 4-0-0. Chairman Roger Coutu was not at Monday’s meeting.
submitted by Michael Hood, Boy Scout, Star Rank, Troop Scribe for Troop 11 Litchfi eld’s Boy Scout Troop 11 from participated in the Flags on the 48 Memorial Hike for the seventh consecutive year. This year, the troop hosted Mount Pierce (4,311 feet). The group set out from Litchfi eld at 5:30 a.m. and met at the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Highland Center in Crawford Notch of the White Mountains. The scouts carried a heavy metal fl ag pole and an American fl ag with them as they made their way to the peak up some steep and rocky terrain. A color guard raised both the American fl ag as well as an Airborne Division fl ag at the summit. Scouts participating in 2012 were Roberto Landrau, Harrison Hidalgo, Michael Hood, Cameron Schmitt, Killian Franklin, Lar Smith. They were joined by adult leaders Dale Wright, Dave Hill, David Franklin, Roberto Landrau and several troop parents. Flags on the 48 is a Memorial Hike for those that lost their lives on September 11, 2001. It started on September 15, 2001, four days after the attacks, when six hikers raised the American fl ag from the summit of Mt. Liberty. The second hike was organized as a grassroots effort on the Appalachian Mountain Club Internet message board. Since its inception, this memorial hike has gained popularity. Groups or individuals offer to host one of the 48 mountains in New Hampshire over 4000 feet in height, and all 48 are staffed. For more information, see http://fl agsonthe48.org
. Troop 11 participates in many outdoor activities, such as hiking,
backpacking and camping in all seasons. The Troop meets at the Litchfi eld Community Church at 7 p.m. on Monday evenings. For more information, see http://troop11nh.info

6 column Electronic Devices Require School Policies
by Lynne Ober Every day more people acquire electronic devices. The ubiquitous cell phone has found its way into many student backpacks as parents and students need a way to keep in touch, and now tablets are joining the common array of electronic devices. Some school districts are purchasing tablets for each student rather than purchasing textbooks and while the Hudson school district is not purchasing tablets instead of textbooks, the district is moving into a more digital environment. As a result, changes need to be made. Alvirne High School Principal Steve Beals wants to fi nd a way to encourage appropriate usage

of electronic devices within the classroom learning environment. With the addition of a wireless network upgrade at Alvirne, Beals knew the time to take action had arrived. Working with staff, he has proposed an Expanded Electronic Device protocol for Alvirne’s students.
Superintendent Bryan Lane noted, “Through the generosity of
the Alvirne Trustees, the high school now has a wireless network throughout the building.” This generous donation made it possible for staff and faculty to review how more technology could be implemented. The reality is that 21st century schools need to take advantage and make use of 21st century technology in order to prepare students for their futures. Beals knew that teachers learned their profession before the advent of much of today’s technology and he wanted to fi nd a way to move faculty into the 21st century and allowing students to take advantage of newer technologies. As a result he crafted a methodology to include all of the stakeholders in the process of moving into a more digital learning arena.
