RYE | As the end of 2007 looms near, one
Rye family has had more than its fair share
of trials and hopefully something more to be
thankful for.
On Sept. 22, 2004, Jerry Haley was a
healthy man in the midst of a home improvement project, which included making room
for a set of twins he and his wife, Allison,
were expecting. It was that day that Jerry
suffered a massive seizure and was transported to Portsmouth Regional Hospital. It
was there the Haley’s learned of Jerry’s grim
diagnosis — a brain tumor.
Because of radiation treatment for the
tumor, Jerry now suffers from radiation
necrosis, a rare and incurable condition that
can cause headaches, seizures, and neurological deficits such as weakness and speech
loss.
“When Jerry got sick we stopped everything,” said Allison. “Our lives changed
forever.”

EXETER | Monday’s
chilling weather served to
emphasize the needs provided by the Exeter Chamber Children’s Fund, which
announced that it raised
more than $10,000 over last
year’s total.
The fund, which began
in 1989 when it distributed
roughly $5,000, has grown
significantly. Since that time
the group has raised hundreds of thousand of dollars
to go to area children.
This year the Children’s
Fund distributed more than
$59,000 in winter clothing
and blankets to 305 families
and 610 children.
Chamber of Commerce
President, Thom Kraus said

Toys for Tots gets gift basket boost
By Liz Premo
Atlantic News Staff Writer
Although the Toys for
Tots gift basket project was
conducted independent of
the PTA and the school as
a whole, Aslin was grateful
for the support the effort
received all the way around.
“They were thrilled that
we did this,” Aslin says of
Principal Dave O’Connor
and Assistant Principal Lois
Costa. “They were very supportive,” as were conference attendees, who learned
about the gift basket drawing upon their arrival at the
school.
“The parents thought
it was a great idea,” says
Aslin. “Some parents said,
‘Just put anyone’s name on
[the ticket]; we just want to
donate.’”
So did her son Jonathan,
who not only used his own
money to purchase tickets,
but also performed extra
tasks to earn more so he
could buy more.
“We really wanted to
show the kids how to give,”
Aslin says, adding that
Jonathan’s peers were also
caught up in the excitement.
“Most of them wanted
the books,” observes Aslin.
“That was really cool.”
The winners of the drawing — a fourth grader and
a fifth grader — also fared
well, as did the local Toys
for Tots drive (based in Londonderry), which, according to United States Marine
Corps Staff Sergeant Edwin
Jose “has been a little slow
this year. It seems like donations are down, real down,
and we still have some

here with Staff Sergeant Edwin Jose (USMC), display the many toys purchased using funds raised
through a gift basket drawing, conducted during parent-teacher conferences.

orders to fill.”
That burden has definitely been made lighter because
of the generosity of the Marston community.
“I think it’s awesome that
children are helping other
children,” says SSgt Jose,
clearly impressed with how
“they are helping people in
general” at such an early
age.
And even though “we
didn’t send out any flyers
about [the drawing],” says
Aslin, “I thought we did
pretty good. Every little bit
helps.”
Those in the community
who would like to assist,
a little or a lot, with the
Marine Corps Toys for Tots
Foundation can contact their
Londonderry toy drop site at
(603) 537-8012, or visit www.

HAMPTON | The United
States Marine Corps’ annual
Toys for Tots drive in New
Hampshire received a helpful boost this year thanks
to the generosity of the
Marston School community
— and a couple of really cool
gift baskets.
A drawing for the baskets was conducted during
recent parent-teacher conferences held at the school.
Tickets were sold at 50 cents
each (as well as three for
$1), and sales were reportedly brisk both nights of the
conference.
The family movie-themed
basket included the animated DVD “Ice Age” as well
as an assortment of theatreworthy candy and popcorn;
a basket devoted to reading
featured a number of books
that included “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea”
and “Treasure Island” along
with an electronic bookmark
that uses an audio alert to
measure the length of time
spent reading.
Those attending the conferences wholeheartedly
stepped up to the plate, collectively purchasing $160
worth of tickets for a chance
to win. The money was then
used to buy a huge assortment of toys, gratefully
accepted by Marine Corps
representatives who stopped
by the school last week to
pick everything up.
The idea for the gift basket drawing to benefit Toys
for Tots was devised by a trio
of mothers whose children
attend Hampton schools.
According to Sharon Aslin,
she and a couple of her fellow Hampton PTA members
— Rose Hanley and Joan
Maloney — got together a
while back at Me and Ollies.
Their
conversation,
which touched upon coming
up with different ways to
support Hampton students
and schools, generated a
plan that would engage the
Marston School community
in an outreach that fit well
with the current season of
giving.
“We were just talking
about it (the drawing) and
thought it would be a nice
thing to do,” says Aslin, who
credits Maloney with coming up with the idea to make
the themed baskets.
It was a group effort from
the beginning, from child to
adult.
“All of our kids helped;
Meredith (Maloney) picked
out the books with her mom;
Rose thought of the video.
Joan put the baskets together,” says Aslin.
For her part, Aslin was
in charge of purchasing the
Toys for Tots bounty using
the money raised through
the drawing.
“That was fun; I had a
great time!” says Aslin, who
shopped at multiple Seacoast area stores, picking up
games, puzzles, Play Doh,
dolls and more. “I thought,
‘Oooh, a little girl is going
to love this! A little boy will
like these cars’ — it was joyful for me.”

of Environmental Services
(DES) Commissioner Tom
Burack announced this
week the execution of an
“Administrative Fine by
Consent” with the town of
Seabrook.
The settlement resolves
violations of open burning regulations under the
State’s Air Pollution Control Act that occurred at the

Seabrook transfer station,
located at 70 Rocks Road.
Cities and towns in New
Hampshire are authorized
to burn only brush and
untreated wood at their
transfer stations. After
receiving a complaint that
the Town of Seabrook was
burning non-conforming
materials, DES visited the
transfer station on two different occasions in June
2007.

DES personnel observed
painted wood, plywood,
stained imitation wood,
various sized pieces of
metal, a chair and cushion,
a painted wood/ metal
window frame, and garbage bags of yard waste
in the two burn piles. One
burn pile contained charred
remains while the second
had unburned materials in
it.
The transfer station
attendant was advised to
remove all non-conforming
materials from the second
pile before setting it on fire.
During the second visit,
DES personnel observed at
least eight metal containers, including five 5-gallon buckets, on the burn
pile. The combustion of the
material in the buckets was
releasing black smoke.
To resolve these violations of state law, the town
agreed to a fine of $3,501.
The terms of the settlement
require the town to make a
cash payment to the state in
the amount of $2,000. The
remaining balance of $1,501
is suspended contingent
upon no violations by the
town of environmental laws
and rules for two years.
Further, prior to any
burning at the transfer station, the town must have
the contents of the burn
pile inspected by a person
trained in what materials
are allowed to be burned.
“The open burning of
materials other than brush
and untreated wood is prohibited by state law,” said
DES Commissioner Burack.
“It pollutes the air and
can often pollute nearby
streams and lakes. It is a
nuisance for neighbors and
the smoke and air emissions can cause serious
health problems. We expect
our towns to obey the law
and set a good example for
their citizens.”
Commissioner Burack
added, “We are pleased
that the town of Seabrook
will be taking measures
to ensure that only brush
and untreated wood will be
burned at its transfer station in the future.”

To the Editor:
I am writing this letter to
let everyone know, that I am
supporting John McCain for
president.
John’s leadership qualities, his courageous service to
our country, and his proven
bi-partisan approach to getting things done in Washington, has without question
positioned him as the most
qualified individual for the
office as our president in
2008.
As commander in chief,
our troops will have a leader
who has proven himself in the
military, and can effectively
lead our country to victory
against the radical Islamic
terrorists in Iraq, Afghanistan
and beyond.
McCain has said, “I would
rather lose an election, than
lose a war!” Imagine that?
Who else has said such a bold
statement? No one. That’s
courage. That’s conviction.
That’s leadership.
We can believe John
McCain. We can trust John
McCain. And most importantly, we can finally come
together, as a nation, with
John McCain.
I would hope that every
American, and I mean, all
Democrats, Republicans and
Independents, to take a serious look into the future, and
ask yourselves, who is the
most qualified American to
lead our country? If you’re
honest, that man is John
McCain.
Let’s win the war and
bring us back together as a
nation. America needs John
McCain.

Parallel opinion
To the Editor
I read with interest the
opinion expressed by Mr.
[Jerry] McConnell regarding
two letters from supporters
of the ACLU. My views of
the ACLU and its misguided supporters parallels Mr.
McConnell's.
I am a member of the
Pease Greeters, an organization of loyal Americans
who meet each aircraft that
comes into Pease with military personnel either heading
overseas or returning from
overseas. When I welcome
and thank these brave Americans, I do so on behalf of all
Americans. Unfortunately, I
cannot provide the greeting
by saying "with the exception
of the slime that comprises
the ACLU staff and their supporters."
The ACLU group and
supporters can thank God
(that would be a switch) they
live in America where their
right to exist and speak their
venom is protected by others
represented by the American
Armed Forces such as we
welcome at Pease.

Less than impressed
To the Editor:
I was impressed when I
read about Senator Sununu's
dedication to the Low
Income Heating Assistance
Program (LIHEAP) and the
New Hampshire residents
that it helps. That is, until I
learned that Senator Sununu
has voted as many as five
times to decrease funding for
LIHEAP.
I, myself, am fortunate
enough that I do not have
to depend on the benefits of
LIHEAP to heat my home.
But I do know several families
who need LIHEAP funding
to keep their children warm
and houses heated during
these unforgiving winters.
Many of these same people have to choose between
buying gifts for their families
during this holiday season
or heating their home. This
fact is even more heartbreaking once you learn that Senator Sununu voted against

Senator Sununu’s actions
suggest that he is far less
concerned with these thousands of lower income families of New Hampshire than
he would want us to believe
since he, himself, has never
had to worry about making
ends meet.

Setting an example
To the Editor,
I have to admit it. I’m a
sucker for the holiday season. I love the festive feeling
that seems to permeate an
otherwise dull winter scene.
The beautiful music heard
only at this time of year and
the bright colored lights that
shine in our neighborhoods
take me back to a simpler
time in my thoughts and
memories.
Unfortunately, times are
not as simple as they once
were. Problems I never considered are every day occurrences — like child abuse and
neglect. Children from these
situations are in need of role
models, of families who can
show them a better way to
live.
Our foster families do
that for kids every day. And
kids flourish under their care.
Some return home to their
families, once the problems
have been resolved there.
Some foster families continue
contact with these families
after the child has returned
home. These are the nonjudgmental families who recognize that they have given
a service to a child and they
have made a difference by
setting an example.
We are parenting the next
generation here, folks. It is
up to us to help when we can
so these kids can see what
untroubled family life can be
like. Perhaps they will be able
to raise a healthy, stable family one day because of the
example they were shown by
folks like you. Find out how
you can help. Call your local

Audio/Video Experience puts
emphasis on entertainment
By Scott E. Kinney
Atlantic News Staff Writer
Cyan Magenta Yellow Black
HAMPTON FALLS |
When it comes to today’s
audio and especially video
options, it can all be hard to
decipher.
Hi-def, flat screen, LCD,
Plasma, 1080p, are just some
of the terminology that
today’s consumer has to
wade through when making
a decision. Even you think
you’ve found the right deal
it might not be deal that’s
right for you. And forget
asking the kid at the big box
store.
At Audio/Video Experience in Hampton Falls the
emphasis is on the experience. Owner Andrew Himmer and his crack staff know
that there is more to a new
entertainment piece than just
going to the store and purchasing it.
Not only will they help
you choose the home entertainment equipment that is
right for you, they’ll ensure
you are pleased with your
purchase.
The store is home to more
than audio and visual equipment. It is host to everything that one could possibly
be seeking for their favorite movie buff, sports nut,
video gamer or anyone else
looking for a higher quality
entertainment experience.
As Himmer said, “Video
and audio fidelity shouldn’t
be an option. It should be a
standard.”
That includes televisions
by Pioneer Elite, Hitachi
Director’s Series, Runco
and Epson; control systems
that change lighting, heating/ cooling, music and
video at the pass of a touch
pad; speaker systems by
Snell, Artison, Sunfire and
Speakercraft; electronics
by Integra, Parasound and
Kaleidescape, which can
store thousands of movies,
and even specialized seating
by Berkline.
“We offer things that people do necessarily see at the
traditional retail store,” said
Himmer.
And when it comes to
customer service and installation Audio/Video Experience has oversight over all
operations. There is no farming out work to third party
contractors.
The business offers free
in-home consultations that
include
measurements,
photos, plans and then will
present the customer with
a bound proposal. Himmer
HI-TECH ARTWORK — Andrew Himmer, owner of Audio/

turn around time of two to

Merry Christmas
from SES
Christmas time is a busy
time at Seabrook Elementary
School, what with plays, presentations, music and more
keeping the students “on the
move.”
Earlier this week, students
in Sharon Rogers' grade 4
class and Paulette Bailey's
ston fifth grade teachers
Susan Murphy, Liz Dowst,
Kate O’Connor, Laura Bullard, Judy Hollick, Rachel
Gordon and Beth Vischer.
In addition to wishing
members of the Marston
School community the happiest of holidays, Carlson
expressed his appreciation
for the support that parents
have shown during this busy
time of year.
50 years of WHS
Winnacunnet High School
is having a birthday — a 50th
birthday, to be exact. And as
part of an upcoming celebration, the current Winnacunnet School Board is seeking
almost 40 past school board
members who served from
the towns Hampton, Hampton Falls, North Hampton
and Seabrook.
According to WHS School
Board Chairman, Chris Singleton, “We are attempting
to develop a database from
which we may send invitations to an unveiling of a
commemorative plaque in
honor of those who have
served.”
The names, he added,
“have been compiled from
material at the SAU21
office.”
The list goes from Carroll Blackden (who served
on the board between 195866) to Robert Phillips (2003-
06). In addition, nine past
superintendents and seven
principals are on the list of
potential attendees.
Anyone whose name may
be part of the list (available
through SAU21) — or who
may know how to reach anyone on the list — is asked to
contact Linda Vining at the
SAU21 office by calling (603)
926-8992.
Open House at WHS
An open house is scheduled for the evening of
Wednesday, January 16 for
the Winnacunnet Adult High
School program (previously
known as the Winnacunnet
Adult Diploma program).
The open house, which will
take place at WHS, will be
conducted from 5-7:30 p.m.
According to administrators, “the program offers
individuals an opportunity
to complete the requirements
necessary to receive a high
school diploma. Course offerings include English, math,
science, computer technology
and U.S. history, to name just
a few.”
The spring session for
this program is scheduled
to being on January 28 and
will run through May 21. For
more information, stop by the
open house on January 16 or

SEACOAST | With nine
schools within SAU21, there’s
always something newsworthy generated from the classroom. Here’s just a few of the
events and activities going
on at our schools prior to the
upcoming Christmas vacation (December 22 through
January 1; classes resume on
January 2).
grade 1 classes were planning
to present a Christmas play
on Tuesday for the school.
The presentation of the play,
“Babes in Toyland” served as
somewhat of a dress rehearsal for a second showing for
parents on Thursday, December 21.
Third grade teachers Eris
Hersey and Stacy Godin had
their students take part in
numerous activities for their
recent “Christmas Around
the World” presentation. Parents were enlisted to assist in
this project.
More than 80 third graders were gearing up and
rehearsing for their Holiday
Concert, penned in on the
calendar for Wednesday of
this week. Parents as well as
the entire school were invited
to gather at SES to enjoy this
Speaking of Christmas,
Marston School was planning on bringing along its
own share of seasonal joy at
this week’s annual holiday
concert, which was described
by music teacher Gus Carlson as “a ton of fun! The kids’
enthusiasm is contagious!”
The production promised
holiday classics which would
be “performed with a unique
twist,” said Carlson, who has
penned a number of other
creative Marston productions
featuring vocabulary words
sprinkled throughout the
script and the score.
“This year, our story
centers around a letter that
travels the world in search
of holiday spirit and friendship,” Carlson explained.
“Twirling snowmen, bell
ringers, maraca shakers,
recorder players, Russian
dancers and Scrooge and his
henchmen are all part of this
lively production.”
Carlson, who wrote and
directed the program, was
assisted by Ellen Knollmeyer.
Joining the production team
were phys ed teacher Laurie
Sullivan and computer teacher Jennifer Lansberry, who
“choreographed an active
performance
involving
many students from the fifth
grade,” according to Carlson.
Art teachers Joni Donohue
and Bobbi Schults designed
the decorations and scenery,
and phys ed teacher Nate
Dowst managed both the
sound system and curtain
cues during the performance.
Adding their expertise in
dancing, costumes and general organization were Mar-

A cruel, cold wind blew
swirls of snow past shuttered and darkened workshops. Not a soul could be
seen on the deserted streets
— no elves, no reindeer, not
Santa Claus himself. All was
quiet and desolate. Gloom,
like a glowering bank of
gray clouds, hung heavily
over the North Pole.
This should not be. Just
before Christmas, the North
Pole should be alive with
activity. The sounds of hammers and saws echoing from
busy and brightly-lit workshops. Elves checking and
re-checking lists of gifts.
Reindeer pawing and snorting in the cold air, anxious
to begin their long journey.
And above it all, the roaring
laughter of the grand old
man himself, Santa Claus,
gleefully preparing himself
for his entrance onto the
main stage before a worldwide audience of admirers.
Something was wrong at
the North Pole. Very wrong.
In a hostile takeover, the
financial pirate Rufus Drydock, had purchased the
North Pole, and added it
to his empire of captured
corporations. What followed
then was thoroughly predictable. The elves had been
furloughed and their work
3
Cyan Magenta Yellow Black
outsourced to foreign countries where low-paid workers make shoddy toys night
and day. The elves were horrified that the children might
be harmed by the playthings
they so eagerly anticipated.
The reindeer found themselves out of work, too. Gift
delivery was no longer carried out by Santa and his
sleigh. Drydock had subcontracted it to the private
delivery firm, Dump and Go.
Instead of seeing their presents beneath the Christmas
tree, kids would find them
leaning against the garage
door or stuffed beneath a
welcome mat.
Drydock even forbid
children from mailing letters
with their Christmas wishes
to Santa Claus. It was cheaper, he said, to have kids use
an automated telephone system. Chubby-cheeked preschoolers were reduced to
tears when they attempted
to navigate complicated telephone trees which required
them push this button and
then that one, but never got
them where the really wanted to go — to speak to Santa.
More often than not, boys
and girls were put on hold
for so long that they simply
dozed off after a while.
Despairing elves retired
to their tiny homes, where
they scrimped by not burning wood in their fireplaces,
and overindulged, trying to
drown their woes in eggnog
and spiked punch. In time,
of course, their health deteriorated, and large numbers of
elves became sick. However,
since Drydock had canceled
their health insurance, no
medical help was available,
so things just got worse and
worse.
Everyone at the North
Pole was sad, very sad. All
but one person — Rufus
Drydock. Rufus sat upon
his canopied bed wearing
a silk nightgown and a tasseled night stocking cap. His
eyes glowed as he counted
the money he had made by
converting the North Pole
from what he called “a contemptible socialist organization” into his corporation. At
length, Rufus grew tired of
counting the endless stacks
of bills. He set the money
aside, snuffed the candle,
and fell into a fitful sleep.
Toward dawn, Drydock’s
restless sleep was interrupted by the loud clanking
of chains. Rufus opened his
eyes and was aghast to see
an aged man bent beneath
the weight of heavy gold
chains.
“Rufus Drydock,” intoned
the specter, “Take heed. I
am the ghost of Henry Clay
Frick. You see before you a
man destroyed by his arrogance and greed. Sixty of
my wealthy friends and I
built an exclusive hunting
and fishing club high above
the city of Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Due to our neglect,
an earthenware dam on our
property burst on May 31,
1889 during a violent rainstorm, and the water flooded
the town of Johnstown. That
flood killed 2200 people.
“Three years later, I sent
300 armed Pinkerton detectives to break a labor strike
at the Homestead Works of
the Carnegie Steel Company.
In the resulting melee, 16
men were killed, and 8,000
armed militia were needed
to quell the riot. Afterwards,
I tried to make amends
through philanthropy, but
history judged me harshly.
So history will condemn you
if shut down Santa’s workshops.”
The blood drained from
Rufus Drydock’s face. Away
to the window he flew like
a flash, tore open the shutters, and threw up the sash.
“Everyone,” he bellowed out
the window, “come back to
work. We will be as were
before. Hurry, hurry, we still
have time to save Christmas.”
A single light flicked on
in an elf’s cottage. And then
slowly another and then
another. Soon the town was
ablaze with lights. The elves
poured into the streets cheering wildly. The reindeer
excitedly pranced, whirled,
and pawed the cold, winter
air. Santa beamed broadly,
and yelled, “To work, everyone. We can do it.”
And so Christmas was
saved. And all it took was
a little less greed and a little
more compassion. And isn’t
that what Christmas is all
about?

LOVES TO TALK — Hampton resident Diane Haughton

Tobey & Merrill Insurance Agency.

‘Just Keep Talking’
at Tobey & Merrill
By Liz Premo
Atlantic News Staff Writer
HAMPTON | When it
comes to the “Just Keep Talking” program at Tobey &
Merrill Insurance in Hampton, Diane Haughton has
plenty to talk about.
Haughton, of Hampton,
was this year’s grand prize
winner of Tobey & Merrill’s
2007 “Just Keep Talking”
contest. She collected $500
in American Express cards
by referring business to the
insurance agency, which is
based in downtown Hampton.
This year’s contest
was conducted from April
1 through December 9.
Throughout that span of
time, members of the public
were encouraged to “tell a
friend, a colleague, a relative,
an acquaintance — whoever
— about us. When they contact us and tell us you sent
them, you win a free lottery
ticket.”
Then, each month, a “Just
Keep Talking” participant’s
name was drawn out of a
hat, with the winner receiving a $25 gas card. The grand
prize drawing for the $500
American Express card took
place on December 10, the
day after the contest concluded.
According to the rules of
the program, there is no limit
of chances that participants
could create for themselves.
The odds of winning were
entirely dependent upon the
quantity of qualified chances
that were created during the
time the contest was conducted.
The contest was open to
anyone, whether or not they
were a client at Tobey & Merrill. Regardless of their connection to the agency, they
could receive the free lottery
tickets and be entered for
a chance to win any of the
randomly drawn prizes.
In addition, prospects
who were referred to the
insurance agency did not
have to become clients for
the referring party to receive
awards.
According to Tobey &
Merrill, “Our valued clients,
suppliers, and friends refer
their family, friends and
work associates to us for
advice on buying insurance.
We’re interested in building
strong, lifelong relationships
one person at a time. We
offer proactive service to our
customers and want to continue the relationship for a
lifetime.”
They’ll be able to continue to do just that, as long as
people “Just Keep Talking.”

Seacoast Holidays
New Year’s Eve: Traditions and superstitions
By Scott E. Kinney
Atlantic News Staff Writer
For the sake of seeming like you know all about these
holiday things, here are the lyrics to a New Year’s classic.
And, yes, these are the words. As to pronouncing them,
you’re on your own. Happy New Year!
Auld Lang Syne
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days of auld lang syne!
Chorus:
For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne,
We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne!
We twa hae run about the braes,
And pu’d the gowans fine,
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary foot
Sin’ auld lang syne.
We twa hae paidl’t in the burn
Frae morning sun till dine,
But seas between us braid hae roared
Sin’ auld lang syne.
And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere,
And gie’s a hand o’ thine,
And we’ll tak a right guid willie-waught
For auld lang syne!
And surely ye’ll be your pint-stoup,
And surely I’ll be mine!
And we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne!
of the passing year without
impedance. It is important to
make room in the home for
the new year and there is no
better way than showing the
old one the door.
• Old Mother Hubbard.
This particular superstition
states that there should be
no bare cupboards in the
house come the new year,
else they be that way the
remainder of the year. Also
in this light, wallets should
be filled up with plenty of
money to guarantee a year’s
worth of prosperity. And
speaking of money, there are
several New Year’s superstitions revolving around the
almighty dollar.
• The check is in the
mail. The new year is not to
be begun with the household
in debt, payments should be
made prior to January 1. Personal debts should also be
resolved. Conversely, on the
first day of the new year it
is bad luck to lend money
or other items lest one be
paying out for the remainder
of the year. There are also a
list of “do’s” and “don’ts”
for the very first day that
will impact how the year will
unfold.
• Not an exit. On the first
of the year, nothing (yourself included) is to leave the
house. Not the garbage or
the recycling and no shaking
out of rugs.
• Dining your way into
good fortune. A tradition,
most common in the southern states, claims that eating black-eyed peas on New
Year’s Day will attract both
good luck and money to the
one who dines upon them.
• The dreaded “W”
word. Work. It is said one
should do, and be successful
at, something related to work
on the first day of the year.
However, one should limit
their involvement in serious
work activity is to have the
opposite effect. This apparently does not extend itself
to house work. Laundry is a
no-no on the first of the year.
It is believed that if clothing
is washed a family member
will be “washed away” (i.e.,
die) in the coming months.
• That’s the breaks. It is
important to avoid breaking
things during the first day of
the year, otherwise wreckage
is certain to follow through
the year. It is also important
to avoid crying on this day as
it will set the tone for coming
days.
• Stormy weather. It
seems even the weather of
the day can hold an important message for how the
new year will unravel. It is
said if the wind blows from
the south there will be fine
weather and prosperous days
ahead. If it comes from the
north, a year of bad weather.
An easterly wind will yield
famine and calamity, while
winds from the west the
year will hold plentiful supplies of milk and fish, but
there will also be the death
of a very important person.
(I can’t make this stuff up.)
No wind equals a joyful and
prosperous year for all.
Last, but certainly not
least, the king of all New
Year’s superstitions:
• Crossing the threshold.
The first person to enter your
home following the stroke of
midnight will influence the
year you are about to have.
The preference is the visitor
be a dark-haired, tall and
good-looking male. (Says
who?) It is best if he comes
bearing certain small gifts,
such as a lump of coal, a
silver coin, a bit of bread, a
sprig of evergreen and some
salt. (Who is letting this guy
in?)
Blondes and redheads
are considered bad luck and
females as the first to cross
will bring disaster upon the
household.
The first to enter, sometimes known as the “Lucky
Bird,” is expected to knock
rather than enter by key, even
if he happen to be the homeowner. Following greeting
all in the house and dropping
off all of his gifts, he should
make his way through the
house and leave by a different door than the one
he entered. No one should
leave the premises before the
Lucky Bird arrives.
It is also important to
note that the first to enter
must not be cross-eyed or
flat footed.
Hey, these are superstitions — who knows what the
first crackpot to do them was
thinking?
But, then again, a little
luck never hurt. Happy New
Year!

SEACOAST | Ah, the
coming of the New Year.
Often celebrated the evening prior with saying goodbye to the old while ringing
in the new, there are a host
of lesser-known New Year’s
traditions and superstitions
some of which have been
around as long as the celebrations.
Since January 1 is the first
day of the year, many of said
superstitions bear a commonality that the activities
of the first day of the year
will have an outcome on the
remainder of the year.
Below is just a small sampling of the ongoing traditions that are clung to by
some and balked at by others:
• Kissing at midnight.
It’s more than just a friendly
gesture. We kiss those we
hold dearest not just share
the moment with a loved
one, but also to ensure those
affections will continue in
the coming year. It is said
that if one fails to lay one
on the one they love at the
stroke of midnight they are
sure to be met with a year of
chilliness.
• Make a joyful sound.
Those noisemakers are more
than just great fun when
you’re under the influence.
According to more widespread superstition, making such noise is meant to
scare away evil spirits and
the Devil himself. (Church
bells are rung on a couple’s
wedding day for the same
reason.)
• Let it all hang out. At
midnight, all the doors of
the house must be opened
in order to allow the escape

Fresh from the kitchen
of Mrs. Santa Claus
By Liz Premo
Atlantic News Staff Writer
PORTSMOUTH
|
When they took part in this
year’s Festival of Trees at
the Urban Forestry Center,
members of the Portsmouth
Garden Club brought much
more than lovely decorations to the event.
“[We] baked over
8000 cookies to serve our
guests,” said member Ellie
More.
Mouthwateringly made
with molasses, ginger and
other fragrant spices, “Mrs.
Claus’s Gingersnap Cookies” were so deliciously
popular that “we got many
requests for the recipe,”
says More.
And so, in the spirit of
giving this Christmas season, the Portsmouth Garden Club, the Atlantic News
and Santa’s wife herself
present the recipe for “Mrs.
Claus’s Gingersnap Cookies,” just one of the many
sweet attractions at Festival
of Trees 2007.
Mrs. Claus’s
Gingersnap Cookies
Ingredients
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup Crisco
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
2 cups flour
1-1/2 tsp ginger
1-1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Cream together sugar and shortening. Add
molasses and egg, beating well. Sift together flour,
ginger, soda, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg and add
to molasses mixture. Chill dough at least one hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray cookie sheets
with non-stick spray.
Roll dough into very small balls that will result in
cookies measuring 1-1/4 inches in diameter (a small
melon scoop works well). Roll balls in granulated
sugar and place on cookie sheets. Bake 9-10 minutes
until brown (start checking after 8 minutes). Remove
cookies from sheets and cool on racks. Makes six
dozen bite-size cookies.
(Note: If baking multiple sheets at once, rotate
the sheets and shift their position halfway through
the baking time.)

White Christmas
Stop dreaming: It will be a white Christmas
By Mark Chag Jr.
Atlantic News Staff Writer
SEACOAST | Looks like
Bing Crosby’s dream will
come true this year — along
with a lot of other people’s.
It’s going to be a white
Christmas.
With nearly a foot-deep
snow base on the ground,
and more forecast for the
days ahead, folks who hope
for shimmering fields and
glistening white glimmers
will get their wish this holiday season.
Although a white Christmas may seem like the norm
of days gone by, they are not
so common in this region
anymore.
The National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) conducted a
study to measure the probability of every region in the
country and the chances that
each will experience a “white
Christmas.”
After analyzing data from
1960-90, NOAA concluded
that — for the southern New
Hampshire region — there
is only a 7 percent chance
of having 10 or more inches
of snow on the ground by
Christmas Day.
On the other hand, NOAA
findings show that residents
of the Seacoast can count on
an 87 percent chance of having at least a dusting of snow
— about an inch — each year
for Christmas.
With this year’s thick
base already, folks can count
on the Christmas 2007 to be
a white one, especially with
the chilly forecast for the
days ahead.
According to the National Weather Service (NWS),
the local temperatures may
creep up only into the low
40s, on Sunday – two days
before the holiday.
Overall, the forecast for
the week ahead has high
temperatures only in the
upper 20s and lower 30s,
with a high of 35 predicted
for Christmas Day.
There are also, according
to NWS, several chances for
further snow accumulations
before the holiday, while
Christmas Day is expected
to be sunny.
The verdict? This year
would be a great day for
the young — and the young
at heart — to not only find
a sled under the tree on
Christmas morning, but be
able to get outside and use
it as well.

Keeping an eye on the

Part 2
affectionately as “Bumble,”
and is one of the most commonly spotted ornaments,
decorations and plush toys
available. And, as we all
know, “Bumbles bounce.”
This is one holiday special
that’s worthy of bouncing
back to our televisions every
Christmas season.
4. Scrooge. There have
been countless takes on
Charles Dickens’ tale of
ghostly haunts on Christmas
Eve, but the 1970 “Scrooge”
release. It is, however, available on DVD.
When it is broadcast
on television, typically the
scene near the end of the
film with Scrooge’s journey
into hell is deleted — but can
still be found on the DVD
version. Perhaps no other
film in history includes a
dance number with a man
singing from atop a coffin,
and makes it so convincingly charming at the same
time.
out paying homage to the
1946 classic, It’s a Wonderful Life.
Originally a box office
flop, the film would go on
inspiring for decades to
come. The basic premise,
of a man being shown by
an angel how much worse
the world would be had he
never been born, has been
copied and parodied relentlessly over the years.
Perhaps it is for that that
reason that this film has
touched by the classic line,
“Every time a bell rings, an
angel gets his wings.” This
film is an angel worth revisiting every holiday season.
2. How the Grinch Stole
Christmas. With the wealth
of talent woven into this
project, it should come as
no surprise that the 1966
animated feature, “How the
Grinch Stole Christmas” is
still a favorite today.
Based on the book by
America’s most popular
Top 5 Christmas Movies...
is the only jewel in a stocking full of coal.
Starring Albert Finney,
the film is a musical with
much of the dialogue being
sung, not spoken. Nevertheless, those songs are priceless melodies much more
deserving of praise than
most of what Broadway
serves up today.
Anyone who has seen
the movie can recite “Thank
You Very Much,” right on
cue, and will probably leap
out of the chair and break
into a dance when doing so.
Like The Gathering, television has not been kind to
this feature, and it is rarely
shown on TV during the
holiday season, despite the
fact that it received four
Oscar nods and five Golden
Globe nominations after its
If you’re having trouble
finding the holiday spirit,
this film will have you leaping out of your seat and
twirling around the room
— particularly during the
climactic sequence when the
actors are literally dancing
in the streets to the tune of
“Father Christmas” and “I
Like Life.”
The film’s only flaw is
a solo song by Tiny Tim,
when he sings “The Beautiful Day.” Have your fingers
ready to insert into your
ears for that one. Otherwise,
the entire movie is a perfect,
musical work of art, and by
far the most inspirational
take on “A Christmas Carol”
ever filmed.
3. It’s a Wonderful Life. No
list of great holiday movies
would be complete with-
become one of the greatest Christmas movies ever
made — it was the first to
launch the idea of appreciating how we impact those
around us every single day.
In recent years, the premise has been twisted into a
Muppet special and even a
Beavis and Butthead show
— where Beavis sees how
much better (not worse) the
world would have been had
he never been born.
But director Frank Capra
delivered a timeless holiday
film with “Life,” which is as
priceless today as it was in
1946. Modern day audiences may chuckle at the scene
in the movie’s climax where
everyone in town shows up
to drop off cold-hard-cash
on Jimmy Stewart’s dining table, but we are still
children’s book author,
Dr. Seuss, the feature was
narrated by the legendary
Boris Karloff. If that weren’t
enough, it was directed
by Chuck Jones, who was
the man behind the greatest Looney Tunes cartoons
ever made, including Bugs
Bunny, Daffy Duck, and the
rest of the gang.
Mix all those folks into
the brew, and the result is an
instant classic — the story of
a green monster who plans
to steal Christmas away
from the innocent “Whos”
down in “Whoville.”
The feature is eye-candy
from start to finish, with
plenty of laughs intertwined
courtesy the Grinch’s tiny
dog, Max — who doesn’t
still laugh when Max slips
into the snow after having
a reindeer’s antler strapped
to his head, or when he
hops aboard the sleigh for
the trip down the mountain?
The feature appreciates
plenty of broadcast time on
television, and the musical
numbers have become part
of regular radio play. No
season is complete without
at least one journey to Whoville where, so they say, “the
Grinch’s small heart grew
three sizes that day.”
1. A Charlie Brown Christmas. This is the star on top
of the tree of Christmas specials. Everyone has seen it,
and most everyone knows it
line for line. It has become as
iconic to the modern Christmas season as decorated
trees and carols — both of
which happened to play
heavily in the special.
In fact, the jazz-inspired
score by Vince Guaraldi
has gone on to become an
enduring bestseller each
holiday season, and is frequently heard on the radio
and in stores.
With so much emphasis alienating away from
the word “Christmas,” and
toward “holiday,” or “seasonal,” A Charlie Brown
Christmas keeps to the true
meaning of December 25.
When Linus takes the
stage, and quotes from the
Gospel of Luke, in a few
brief passages, he reminds
the world just why we celebrate the season. Oddly
enough, Peanuts creator
Charles M. Schulz had to
fight to keep that scene in
the program.
When network producers
questioned whether audiences would sit through a
reading of the Bible during the special, Schulz, now
famously, replied, “If we
don’t tell the true meaning
of Christmas, who will?”
Cyan Magenta Yellow Black
SEACOAST | Looking
for the best way to squander a little downtime during
the holidays? In last week’s
issue of the Atlantic News,
we presented our readers
with our take on the best
holiday films and features
ever made.
Listed were numbers
10 through six, and included (10) The Gathering, (9)
National Lampoon’s Christmas
Vacation, (8) Santa Claus is
Coming to Town, (7) Home
Alone, and (6) A Christmas
Story.
Here, we present the top
five Christmas films and
specials ever made, and
worthy of a view or two
during this holiday season.
5. Rudolph the Red-Nosed
Reindeer. This was not only
the first “stop-motion animation” special, it was also
the best. Based on the song
by the same title, “Rudolph
the Red-Nosed Reindeer”
was first broadcast in 1964,
and resurfaces every year.
The story of the oddball
young reindeer with a glowing nose, who overcomes
the odds and makes Santa’s
sleigh team — at the helm,
no less — is entertaining
fare in itself.
What gives this special
true legs, however, is the
collection of songs within.
Burl Ives sang “Holly Jolly
Christmas” for the show,
and it has become a holiday staple, as has “The Most
Wonderful Day of the Year.”
Another song that emerged
was “Silver and Gold,”
which to this day gets plenty of radio airtime.
An unexpected delight
that emerged into pop culture from this show was the
“Abominable Snow Monster of the North,” which
we have come to know

PORTSMOUTH | The award-winning
podcast "Atoms, Motion and the Void" will
take the stage as a one-man show from
December 28 through January 6 at the
Players' Ring, located at 105 Marcy Street
in Portsmouth.
Showtimes are Friday and Saturday
nights at 8 p.m. and Sunday nights at 7
p.m. Tickets for general admission are $10
for members and $12 for non-members;
student and Senior tickets are $8 for members and $10 for non-members.
Told from the perspective of 79-yearold Sherwin Sleeves, "Atoms" is a mystical tale of exploration that takes a turn
for the inverse. Hired by a clandestine
organization with the task of recording
secrets, Sherwin Sleeves undergoes a transformative process which offers, in its endstage, an intimate glimpse into the great
unknown. The magical mystery goes to the
very root of life, death, and identity.
Directed by Seacoast artist John Herman, "Atoms" was first broadcast as a
podcast, garnering regional and national
accolades. Local Thornton (NH) writer and
performer Sean Hurley first unveiled the
character before a crowd at the Hard Rock
Café in New York City at the request of
popular radio hosts, Ron & Fez.
The character of Sherwin Sleeves has
also joined the weekly National Public
Radio production of “11 Central Ave.” Hurley recently won Chicago Public Radio's
Shortdocs competition and his work has
been featured on New Hampshire Public
Radio.

the Void” at the Players’ Ring are suggested and can be made by calling (603)

Welcome the New Year at ROH
ROCHESTER | Prepare to ring in the
New Year at the Rochester Opera House
with a pair of great holiday happenings for
the family to enjoy — Get-A-Clue Productions’ musical “Christmas with the Clements” and the second annual New Year's
Eve Party for Kids.
The fun takes place on Monday, December 31 beginning at 10 a.m. It begins with
"Christmas with the Clements,” a family
portrayal of the cherished traditions of the
season — hanging stockings, decorating the
tree, and caroling.
For an interactive experience especially loved by kids, the audience is invited
onstage to re-enact "Twas the Night Before
Christmas," the famous Christmas poem
written in 1822 by Clement Clarke Moore.
It all culminates with a countdown to noontime and a festive party for kids of all ages.
General admission is $20; $15 for students and Seniors; and $10 for children age
12 and under. Tickets may be purchased by
calling (603) 335-1992, online at www.rochesteroperahouse.com/tickets, or at the door
(space is limited, so it is advised to purchase
tickets in advance to avoid disappointment).
Get-A-Clue Productions is a professional,
interactive theatre company created and
owned by Kelli Leigh-Ann Connors and
Cathy Sanborn. Kelli has performed in
regional, stock and dinner theatre for the
past 20 years. When she’s not performing,
she works as a costume designer and director. Cathy has toured from Maine to California with various theatre companies. She is
also an accomplished musical director and
children’s theatre director.
Get-A-Clue earns rave reviews from
audiences throughout New England and
Florida. Their original productions and
adaptations for kids entertainment include
“Lost in Time,” “The Tiny Elf,” “Beauty
and the Beast,” “Who Needs the Trees Anyway?” and several others.
The Rochester Opera House continues
the 2007-08 season with an “Unforgettable
Tribute to Nat King Cole” on January 26 at
8 p.m.; Yu Wei Chinese Dance Collection
on February 9 at 7 p.m., and Lee Griffin as
Frank Sinatra on February 16 at 8 p.m. Tickets may be purchased in advance online or
by phone, or at the box office at 31 Wakefield
Street Rochester.
The Rochester Opera House is a nonprofit performing arts organization, celebrating its 100th anniversary in May 2008.
The Rochester Opera House is supported
by grants from the NH State Council on
the Arts and the NH Charitable Foundation. More information is available online at
www.rochesteroperahouse.org.

Spicing up a holiday celebration
Tips for spicing up the season
12/23/07
BROADCASTBROADCAST
BROADCAST
SEACOAST | Hand off a hot holiday beverage — to dinner guests, carolers,
neighbors who drop by, or kids during tree
trimming or story time — and you instantly
warm both tummies and hearts. Make sure
you treat yourself too; wrapping your hands
around a warm mug in the midst of a hectic
holiday can help you unwind while keeping
the spirit of the Christmas season.
Traditional favorites include hot cider,
cocoa, teas and coffees — all so good there's
no need to look for replacements. But by
adding just a few of the right spices, you
can transform these everyday winter drinks
into extraordinary festive fare.
Homemade gifting
For simple but lovely homemade gifting,
combine the dry ingredients for a special hot
drink in a small jar or canister and tie with a
festive ribbon. Punch a hole in a recipe card
with mixing directions and attach to the ribbon. For even easier gifting, simply place a
package of beverage mix — like those mulling spices — in a festive mug and tie with a
ribbon. Or choose a special tea and deliver
it in a pretty cup and saucer.

Give the crock a workout
Fill your crockpot with an aromatic,
warm, spiced beverage and keep it on low
throughout the day. You'll have a ready-toserve treat at any time, and your home will
be holiday scented, too.

Mulling a beverage simply means heating
and spicing it. Sometimes sweeteners and/
or other beverages are added, too. Mulled
apple juice or cider is classic, but why not
mull other favorites, like cherry, raspberry,
white grape and cranberry juices, as well
as red and white wines? (Just be careful not
to boil the wine or you'll ruin the taste and
evaporate the alcohol). Good mulling spices
include allspice, cinnamon, cloves, fenugreek, ginger, lemon peel, nutmeg, orange
peel, and star anise. Have fun experimenting— or streamline your holiday routine by
stocking up on a mulling spice mix.

Think ethnic
For Spanish flair, add black pepper
and chilies or cinnamon to hot chocolate.
For French influence, thicken cocoas with
cornstarch or arrowroot and stir in some
Grand Marnier and vanilla extract. Top with
a pinch of freshly ground nutmeg. For a
mocha drink, simply use strongly brewed
coffee in place of some of the liquid in your
favorite hot cocoa recipe.

Here’s the recipe for deliciously rich
toddy that adds festive delight to any gathering:
Visions of Sugarplums Toddy
Ingredients:
4 cups milk, divided in half
(dairy, rice, or soy)
2 tablespoons honey
1/8 teaspoon cardamom powder
4 ounces of white baking
chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg powder
4 6-inch cinnamon sticks
Instructions: Warm 2 cups of the milk
along with the honey, cardamom, and baking chocolate in a saucepan until chocolate
is melted. Add remaining milk and heat
until warm. Stir in vanilla. Pour into cups,
sprinkle with nutmeg, and add cinnamon
stick stirrers. Makes about 4 servings.
Note: Substitute almond extract (or
another flavoring, like peppermint extract)
for the vanilla now and then. At a toddler's
tuck-in time, serve without the chocolate to
induce slumber.

Indispensable for mulling, cinnamon
sticks also spruce up hot party drinks when
used as swizzlers. You can even tie half a
dozen long sticks together with a satin ribbon for lovely holiday decoration.

Primary!” for three weekends, January 4-20
at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2
p.m. on Sundays.
Part Capitol Steps and part “Our Town,”
with a healthy dose of C-Span and political
satirist Mark Russell thrown in, “The Primary Primary!” is sure to get people talking,
according to Director Blair Hundertmark.
Presented as a full-length musical, “The
Primary Primary!” features a cast of 20 characters (played by regional actors) that range
from “a ‘typical’ New Hampshire dairy
farm family to the widely-varying candidates who will do anything to win a vote.”
“The Primary Primary!” includes 14 original songs including “It’s Time to Go to New
Hampshire,” “Anything for a Vote,” “The
Tough Question Sidestep,” and “Get Off
Your Sorry A-- and Vote!”
Written by playwright/ composer/ lyricist Robert John Ford, “The Primary Primary!” takes the stage at NHTP’s black box
theatre, located at 959 Islington Street in
Portsmouth.
Tickets are $22 for general admission,
and $15 for students and Seniors. Reservations can be made by calling (603) 431-6644,

White House ornament celebrates
presidential groom and his bride
Special to the Atlantic News
SEACOAST | The 2007
White House Christmas
ornament celebrates the first
administration of Grover
Cleveland, the 22nd (188589) and 24th (1893-97) president of the United States.
The first Democrat to
become president in 24
years, he was the only chief
executive to leave the White
House and return for a second term four years later.
The 49-year-old bachelor
was also the only president
to be married in the White
House.
During his administration, Cleveland became one
of the hardest working presidents ever, doing his own
paperwork and routinely
working past midnight. He

Grover Cleveland and his bride, Frances "Frank" Folsom.

of White House Historical Association
paid his own expenses, dispensed with luxuries such as
the presidential yacht, and
bemoaned the fancy White
House cooking.
The early Cleveland
White House was a lonely
bachelor's house. The picture changed on Wednesday,
June 2, 1886, when Cleveland
married 21-year-old Frances
"Frank" Folsom in a small
ceremony in the Blue Room.
The courtship had been conducted secretly and largely
by mail.
The president included
his proposal of marriage in a
letter to his ward Frank, the
daughter of his late law partner. The formal announcement of the engagement was
made on May 28, 1886 and
they were married five days
later. The public was captivated and the White House
bride earned nation-wide
respect.
The wedding ceremony
portrayed on this year's
White House ornament is a
reproduction of an engraving that appeared in Frank
Leslie's “Illustrated” Magazine in 1886 showing the
bride and groom exchanging
vows. The gold-plated frame
showcases design elements
from the Clevelands' wed-
ding album and the groom's
monogram anchors a border
of orange blossoms from the
bride's wedding gown while
her monogram appears on
the reverse. The second term
of the Cleveland presidency
will be featured on the 2009
ornament.
The cost for this year’s
ornament is $16.95 plus packing and delivery and can
be ordered from the White
House Historical Association, PO Box 96586, Washington, DC 20090-6586; call
(800) 555-2451; or visit www.
whitehousehistory.org. Each
of the 26 ornaments (from
1981 to 2006) is also available, along with educational
brochures.
The White House Historical Association was established in 1961 as a non-profit
organization to enhance the
understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of the
White House. All proceeds
from its trusts and sales of
ornaments, publications and
other association products
are used to fund acquisitions
of historic furnishings and
art works for the permanent
White House collection,
assist in the preservation of
the public rooms, and further its educational mission.

Commentary
And the ‘Scrooge Award’ goes to...
zer Scrooge converted. No
question, Scrooge who hated
Christmas became the biggest supporter of Christmas
that ever was.
What Dickens does not
reveal in his novel is that
Ebenezer Scrooge, prior to
his conversion, had an affair
with the Wicked Witch of the
West. This love child was
named Nincompoop who
begat the tribe of Nincompoops whose descendents
are evidenced today. Their
claim to fame, as it were, is
that they hate Christmas.
I must point out, to their
credit, that they do not hate
everything about Christmas.
Like every other hypocrite,
they pick and choose what
they like and what they
hate.
Of course, everybody
knows what they hate about
Christmas. But what they do
not want you to know is
what they really like about
Christmas.
For example, those who
hate Christmas and are
offended by the idea of it are
never offended by Christmas
Day off with pay. In fact, no
self-depraved Nincompoop
would work on Christmas
Day. It is against their religion.
Nor are they offended
by receiving their annual
Christmas bonus. They start
By Rev. James L. Snyder
Special to the Atlantic News
I never have to check the
calendar to see if the Christmas season is approaching.
As soon as the “season to be
jolly” approaches all those
jolly-challenged
people
begin their sniping. I think
Jack Frost is nipping at more
than their noses and some
people are nipping at more
than hot chocolate.
The Christmas season
is filled with tradition. The
newest tradition to arrive on
bobsled is the annual war
on Christmas. I wait for this
annual tradition with baited
breath (actually, it's eggnog).
In fact, I refuse to start putting up any Christmas decorations until the war begins.
After all, protocol is important to me, and a tradition is
a tradition.
It seems a little incongruent to me that those who are
antiwar are usually the ones
behind the war on Christmas.
I guess war is okay depending on the person who starts
it and what you are against.
It is hard to justify that
Ask about our lowest price guarantee
the one time of year given
to "good cheer" someone is
complaining about the "good
cheer." Of all the things
in our world to complain
about, I am surprised that
this even registers on somebody's radar. How the war
on Christmas trumps the
war on poverty is something
I guess I will never understand.
However, some "powers
that be” call a moratorium on
all other areas of the world
to complain about and condemn Christmas. Do not let
this get around, but I believe
that these complaining are
somehow related to the Tribe
of Nincompoops. It may be
my imagination but it seems
this tribe increases every
year. The more they increase
in number the more they
decrease in intelligence.
Charles Dickens in his
novel “A Christmas Carol”
tried his best to destroy
this tribe by having Ebene-
looking for this beginning
in January. In their deflated
mind, they see no connection between Christmas
and their Christmas bonus.
The one does not create the
other. Where do they think
the Christmas bonus comes
from? Maybe they think it
comes from the same origin that they came from ... a
monkey somewhere. Only a
guess on my part.
Then, try to have a Christmas party and not invite any
Nincompoop. I have been to
many Christmas parties and
I have noted the many Nincompoops. Every party has
its share of Nincompoops. I
just cannot figure them out.
They insist that they come
from monkeys but at Christmas parties, they act like
donkeys.
I have yet to see any of
these people refuse a Christmas present. They are one
of the first to put their name
in to the gift exchange hat
when it comes around the
office. They look forward to
unwrapping their Christmas
present just like anybody
else.
In spite of all this, they
claim to be offended by
Christmas. Of all the things
to complain about and to be
offended by this one should
not even rate a considerSCROOGE Continued on 30A•

was caught in the act of
generosity by the grateful
father.
Many make the Santa
Claus-like association of this
story to Saint Nicholas the
gift giver. I see an additional
angle. For reasons that often
involve money, women
today have few benefactors,
few Saint Nicks. Bob Dylan
sang truly two decades ago
that today’s culture seems
to promote “old men turning young daughters into
whores.” A look at any
magazine rack will tell you
that there is a market for
flesh and the demographic
is predominantly male, ages
12 and up. Research company Visiongain estimated
that the pornography market was a 70 billion industry in 2006. That is a lot of
gold being used to degrade
women rather than enhance
their virtue.
Blending traditional gender roles has been little help
here. Women today are not,
nor should they be, as helpless as those three girls aided
by Saint Nicholas. However,
girls gone wild with sexual
freedom most often leads to
exploitation by men. I doubt
we would see as much skin
if there were no gawking
male purchasers, eager to
buy and sell innocence as
commerce.
Harmful to both men and
women, graphic sexuality,
even the somewhat scaled
down prime-time variety,
contributes to the overall
commoditization of sex.
Viewed through the eyes of
a pornographer, sex is commerce and sexual purity is
restraint of trade.
We need Saint Nicholas
today. We need the gifts of
chastity and modesty. We
need more respecters of
purity and fewer of those
who would sell young people into the brothel of commercialism.
We need you today Saint
Nicholas, the Wonderworker. Our sons and daughters
need the good gifts of those
who truly value their health
and purity.

Given the decision-making power of Santa Claus on
the matter of gifts, my children make sure they leave
Mr. Claus some seriously
good cookies on Christmas
Eve.
However, most children
don’t know that there is
much more to the real Saint
Nick than toys and cookies.
In addition to being generous, the jolly fellow could
easily be considered the
patron saint of purity.
Recently looking into
the legend of Saint Nick, I
learned that Saint Nicholas lived early in the fourth
century in what is now Turkey. Orphaned as a young
boy, he was left with substantial financial means by
his parents. He used this
inheritance to benefit others, especially children.
Deeply religious, Nicholas became the Bishop of
Myra in Turkey and played
an important leadership role
in the church. Called the
Wonderworker, he was well
known for his generosity
to children, hence his association with the legend of
Santa Claus. The story of a
benevolent soul giving gifts
to children is a part of many
cultures with many names.
Saint Nick as another name
for Santa Claus persists to
this day.
I also discovered that
Saint Nicholas is a patron
saint of virgins. In the Catholic tradition, a patron saint
is one who prays to God on
behalf of a petitioner. So, if
one wants to remain chaste,
one may pray to Saint Nicholas who will then lift up
the petitioner in spiritual
prayer to God. As an aside,
his patronage may explain
at least one of the criteria for
being in either the naughty
or nice category when Saint
Nick checks and rechecks
his list. But I digress. There
is more to this story.
Legend has it that Saint
Nicholas became aware of
a desperately poor parishioner having three daughters
with no dowry to recommend them for marriage.
The father had planned to
sell them into prostitution
to provide some means of
support. By night, Saint
Nicholas secretly brought
bags of gold on three separate occasions to the man’s
home. These generous visitations allowed the three
daughters to have sufficient
means to avoid whoredom
and later strike a marriage
covenant. On the third visit
to deliver the gift, Nicholas

The
December 13 meeting of
the Hampton Seniors at the
United Methodist Church
started off under fair skies
and with a large attendance.
Louise Calkins opened
the festivities with an unusual version of “White Christmas,” and the Seniors gave
full-throated response with
their version, which got the
meeting off to a good start.
After the minutes, a new
member was introduced;
welcome aboard, Albert
Bergeron. Terri Perry, the
Sunshine Lady, sent a sympathy card to Helen Moynihan, whose nephew was
killed in a tragic fire.
Our President, Jeannine
St. Germain, thanked all the
members for their generous
donations to the Hampton
Community Coalition.
Dyana Martin from the
recreation department spoke
of the Cupid’s Luncheon at
the Old Salt on February 14
(sign up at the rec department). A trip to Ireland is
being planned for September; and Red Sox tickets are
available through the rec
department for next year.
Chris McDougal and
Jeannine St. Germain celebrated birthdays. The
Seniors were entertained
by the Winnacunnet High
School Chamber Singers,
always a pleasant occasion.
After the meeting the
Seniors relocated to the Galley Hatch Conference Center
for a delicious meal and an
enjoyable hour of piano playing by Ray DeMarco, pianist
of note. After the luncheon
we emerged to a deluge of
snow and were all thankful
to get home safely.

12:30-1:30 p.m.; U-13 Girls,
1:30-2:30 p.m.; U-14 Girls,
2:30-3:30 p.m.).
Participants are asked
to show up 10-15 minutes
before their scheduled
time in order to fill out
the required registration
forms. The cost is $20 at the
door ($10 fee for returning
NHHDS players).
Each team will have two
basketball practices a week
and/ or games/ tournaments every few weekends.
The practice sessions will
be broken into individual
improvement sessions and
team practices. All girls
teams will have practice
time at Lincoln Akerman
School and some other SAU21 gyms. All boys’ teams,

will play in some organized
travel games and tournaments. Some of the teams
will prepare and play in the
NH-AAU State Basketball
Tournament in May.
The future goal and the
most important tool that
NHHDS can offer is to get
talented U-16 and U-17
players top college exposure
so that they may receive
scholarship offers. Exposure
will be received through the
travel tournaments, private
workouts and the use of
numerous college contacts.
Coach Coates, a former
professional basketball player (Norway’s 2004 league
MVP and leading scorer,
current NBA and WNBA
talent evaluator) has extensive basketball experience as
both a player and a coach
(youth 17-Under). He is
focused on much more then
just developing his players’
individual basketball skills:
He will be developing each
players’ character, self-confidence, attitude, and will
install the true meaning of
team-work. All players will
be given lots of individual
positive-specific feedback.

Compiled by John M. Holman
Hampton History Volunteer
“1638 - HAMPTON, N.H.
- 1871 ... In 1638 the General
Court of Massachusetts
granted to Rev. Stephen
Bachiler, the territory
extending along the Atlantic
coast from Massachusetts
State line to Portsmouth.
This tract of land, then
comprised the town of
Hampton, embracing within
its limits the villages of
Seabrook, Hampton Falls,
North Hampton and a part
of Rye. The present town
of Hampton is pleasantly
situated on the line of the
Eastern (rail) road, some
46 miles from Boston, one
of the best routes for the
tourist leading from the
Hub, as we pass through
the busy manufacturing city
of Lynn; the venerable city
of witches, Salem; Hamilton
of camp meeting celebrity;
and renowned Beverly;
Newburyport and Salisbury.
“Upon
reaching
Hampton, we find ourself in
a town containing some 1500
inhabitants, churches, an
academy and little red brick
school-houses, one of which
having a small cupola we
mistook for an engine house.
Many of the dwellings have
an antiquated appearance,
a few, we should judge,
having been in existence
as long as the town itself,
but the majority are of
modern architecture; while
around all is observed that
air of neatness and thrift,
which betokens Hampton
to be a wide-awake, neat
and industrious town.
Farming constitutes the
chief employment of the
inhabitants, the principal
product being potatoes,
of which large quantities
are grown for market. We
noticed, also, many fine
fields of corn and grain on
the road from the depot to
the shore.
“As a summer resort,
Hampton ranks among
the first on the North
Shore, its bold rocky coast
and splendid sea view,
comprising a range from
Cape Ann to Portsmouth,
including the Isle of Shoals,
cannot be surpassed. Several
large hotels are near the
beach, prominent among
them being the “Boar’s Head
Hotel,” situated upon a
jagged promontory bearing
a not very poetic name of
Boar’s Head, whether from
real or fancied resemblance
to the object from whence
the name is derived, we
know not.
“From
present
appearances the season at
Hampton will be the most
brilliant one that has taken
place for many a year. With
this we give a list of the hotels
and their appointments. Boar’s Head Hotel
“The natural advantages,
the location of this Hotel,
is unsurpassed. Situated on
the promontory, known as
Boar’s Head, 65 feet above
the level of the sea, within a
short distance of the fishing

Outraged
To the Editor:
I am outraged by the
news that Carol Shea-Porter
has been spending our tax
dollars for political purposes.
Just who does she think she
is?
I get enough junk mail
from political candidates in
my mailbox — but I sure
don’t write a check to the
federal government to pay
for it. She should go to jail
for this.

Happy ending
Cyan Magenta Yellow Black
To the Editor:
I wanted to thank everyone who gave donations over
the last two months to fill the
New Generation food pantry
on behalf of Dot Smith of
Exeter.
Two months ago, our
shelves were nearly bare of
supplies and foods needed
for residents to cook daily
meals. Dot was unable to
hold her 50’s Dance Fundraiser this year because her
husband was battling terminal cancer.
Thrilled that we had made
this appeal, Dot knew that
individuals from the community would pull together and
solve the problem. Sadly, Bob
Smith passed away in October. Dot and her family are
now on the mend, but it is a
slow process.
I recently had a visitor to
the shelter. A lady came into
the office and asked if I was
Mrs. Smith. She wanted to
make a donation for the food

scrooge from 24A
pantry. I was thrilled to see
a $1,000 check towards the
effort.
To date, the news has
brought in $1500 in cash,
as well as several bags of
groceries and canned goods
brought to the thrift shoppe.
Special thanks go to Dr. Jose
Ramos and family, and the
Fidelity Investments Women’s Charitable Giving Club.
I thank you for sharing this happy ending with
your readers and hope that
those who can donate to
agencies serving families in
crisis in the Seacoast, will.
Meanwhile the residents are
making healthy meals each
night for one another, sitting
down to dinner in a family
environment. I thank you for
making that possible during
these tough economic times.
I wish you happy holidays
and many joyous family dinners to come.

New political hero
To the Editor:
Joe Lieberman is my new
political hero. There are not
many of them around anymore. However, I am old
enough to remember when it
was accepted that you could
have just as much respect for
Ronald Reagan as you did
for Tip O'Neil. Why couldn't
you? They both had tremendous respect for one another,
and they didn't let their party
affiliations get in the way
of their affiliation with the
American public.
Well, it looks as though the
clocks have been turned back
a bit. Senator Joe Lieberman,
playing the role of Tip O'Neil,
courageously endorsed the
Presidential campaign of
Senator John McCain playing
the role of Ronald Reagan.
Lieberman — an Independent who caucuses with
the Democrats — recognizes
that, in his words, "McCain is
the best qualified to confront
threats to US interests around
the world, including terrorism.” Lieberman also went
on to state, "Political parties
are important in our country,
but they're not more important than what's best for our
country.''
While many of our nation's
voters share mainly centrist
views, the fringe primary
voting factions of the Republican and Democratic parties
share mostly extremist views
and they have a choke hold
on our political nominating
process. Lieberman agrees
by stating, "We desperately
need our next president to
break through the reflexive
partisanship that is poisoning
our politics today. I honestly
believe that he (McCain) can
reunite our country.''
The Des Moines Register,
the Boston Globe, the Manchester Union Leader and the
Portsmouth Herald all agree
McCain is the best candidate
and now my new political
hero Joe Lieberman does as
well. We need more guys
like Joe Lieberman and John
McCain. Let's make an effort
to get back to the days when
statesmen ran our country,

a row they have done my
fall yard cleanup. [Recently],
with snow on the ground,
23 workers showed up with
their rakes, led by Major
Mike and his wife, and Fran
the sergeant major.
In one and a half hours
my yard was clean, and it
was accomplished with a lot
of hard work — but fun, too,
if you can picture a very large
tarp with lots of leaves folded
into it, all those kids lined
up and holding the edges.
And when the major yells
“GO!” they take off at a run
to the very back of the yard.
Of course, they’re yelling all
the way!
This is not their only civic
project; they have participated in beach cleanups for
years, have served as crossing guards at Exeter’s Walk
for Breast Cancer, and this
fall they were involved with
the dedication of the Guadalcanal flag at Pease Tradeport.
All this, as well as their own
activities and attending other
ROTC events.
These young people
are a great addition to our
community. We owe them
respect and support.

Many of these Nincompoops owned stores where
people shop for Christmas
presents. I have yet to find
one of these stores closed
during the Christmas shopping season. They want
me to spend my Christmas
bonus money there and buy
all my Christmas presents
there but I am not permitted
to say "Merry Christmas."
If these people really do
not like the Christmas season I suggest they spend the
Christmas season in Timbuktu. I'll chip in on the bus fare
... one-way.
I am a little disconcerted
about all of this complaining and being offended by
Christmas. It's my holiday,
let me enjoy it. After all, I
don't complain about nor am
I offended by their holiday

"And, lo, the angel of the
Lord came upon them, and
the glory of the Lord shone
round about them: and they
were sore afraid. And the
angel said unto them, Fear
not: for, behold, I bring you
good tidings of great joy,
which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this
day in the city of David a
Savior, which is Christ the
Lord. And this shall be a sign
unto you; Ye shall find the
babe wrapped in swaddling
clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was
with the angel a multitude
of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory
to God in the highest, and
on earth peace, good will
toward men." (Luke 2:9-14
KJV).

“It highlights the real
need of the community,”
Kraus said, “but it also highlights the generosity of this
community.”
Kraus said the fund is
among the most important
functions of the Chamber.
“I don’t think there is
anything more important or
more rewarding than being
involved in the Chamber
Children’s Fund,” he said.
The money is raised by
a number of agencies, local
businesses and area school
children.
As part of Monday’s ceremony, children from Great
Bay Kid’s Company added
$149.52 to the fund’s coffers.
The effort is also propped
up by such events as the
town’s annual Festival of
Trees, which raked in $23,047
towards the fund.
The group provides for
children in the communities
of Brentwood, East Kings-
ton, Epping, Exeter, Kensington, Kingston, Newfields,
Newmarket, Raymond and
Stratham.
Children’s Fund Committee Chair Beth Dupell
said further good things are
to come from the committee. The annual Mitten Campaign has been moved to
January in order to improve
its participation.
“We think we’ve better
focused it to get more awareness,” She said.
A Family Fun Night is
also in the works for March
or April. Dupell said the
event may bear an “’Are You
Smarter than a Fifth Grader’
theme.”
Krauss said that while the
fund has given the nearly
$60,000, about half of that
money has been raised thus
far.

My name is
Walter Lang of Lang’s Landscaping and contributed to
by a number of local nursery’s including Rye Ridge,
Garden of Eves, North Hill
Nursery, Rolling Greens and
of course, Lang’s.
“They just took it upon
themselves to do this,” said
Allison of Lang’s efforts.
“They took a finished house
and turned it into a home.”
Much of the thanks goes
to neighbors Gil and Eileen
Dailey, who made the call
to the Portsmouth “Herald”
and got the ball rolling.
Allison, and others,
have called the Daileys her
“Guardian Angels.” Even
now the couple continues
to lend a hand where they
can, whether it is hanging a
Christmas wreath or baking
cookies with one of the three
children.
“Not a week goes by
that they don’t help us with
something and we are so
grateful,” said Allison.
“They have really embraced
our family as their own.”
The Daileys are but a
sampling of the neighborly
to swallow,” Allison said.
“I’ve always been proactive
in searching out new opportunities and treatments.”
But the through it all,
with the combination of
Jerry’s spirit and Allison’s
will, the Haleys continue to
forge on.
“Jerry’s attitude is what’s
pulling us through as a family,” Allison said. “He says,
‘Just to be here for the holidays is a gift itself.’”
Several of Allison’s
friends from Providence College continue to support her
through both personal support and a Web site, www.
haleysfund.com that continues to garner support for the
family.

It was at that moment that
Allison became swamped
with responsibility. In addition to her role as his wife,
Allison has taken on the
responsibilities of being
Jerry’s primary caregiver, as
well as taking care of their
three young children, twins
Megan and Jake, 2 and fouryear-old Peter.
But a recent swell of community support saw the
unfinished home improvement project.
First there was the completion of the home renovation project, headed by
Nathan Scott of Scott Builders in Portsmouth, who was
present during Haley’s first
seizure and put the challenge to fellow local builders
to help complete the house.
In late September, a project years in the making was
finally done, thanks to the
aid of several professional
builders, volunteers from
Jerry’s former employer,
Timberland, neighbors and
friends.
And then there was the
landscaping, headed up by
support the Haley’s have
received.
“It’s the neighbors that
have made us feel a little
more normal,” Allison said.
Although the home is
now complete and the landscaping finished, Allison said
the support for husband, her
family and herself continues
to come.
“The community has just
been so incredibly giving,”
Allison said. “I just have to
thank so many people.”
Unfortunately,
the
Haleys’ trials also continue.
For the first time since Jerry
was diagnosed more than
three years ago, there is no
medical plan for him.
