Town Council Appoints
Budget Advisory Committee
The Derry Town Council
will be working with a Budget Advisory Committee for
the next budget season.
At the Sept. 1 Council
meeting, Chairman Tom Cardon announced the appointment of the following members:
• Tom Hosey, vice-president of Enterprise Bank;
• Frank Talarico, vicepresident of Santander Bank;
• Blaine Plantey, Santander Relations Manager;
• Senior Accountant
Mark Fleischer;
• Interim Town Administrator Susan Hickey, who is
also Chief Financial Officer;
• Councilors David Fis-
cher and Richard Tripp, who
have been “on different ends
of the spectrum” regarding
financial issues, Cardon
The committee’s charge
is as follows: It will provide
general advice and recommendations to the Town
Council on financial and
operational matters, specifically in gathering and analyzing relevant data to identify and compare expenses,
services and property tax
rates in Derry to those in
comparable New Hampshire
communities. In addition,
Cardon said, the committee
may make recommendations to the Council regarding other financial matters,
including short-and longterm financial planning
The committee is expected to start meeting this
fall and to present findings
and recommendations to the
Council each January, Cardon said.
Cardon acknowledged
that the makeup of the committee is different than Budget Committees in other
towns, which are filled by
ballot or appointment, and
from the Derry Cooperative
School District’s Fiscal
Advisory Committee, which
meets in the fall and is filled
by application and appointment.
Those are well and good,
Cardon said, but the Council
had a different vision for this
committee, the brainchild of
Fischer. “We wanted financial people and people withcontinued on page 4
After Budget Cuts, Hickey
Seeks to Fill Two Vacancies
The Derry Town Council
will spend up to $2,500 to
review efficiency in the
Human Resources and Finance departments, after a
reshuffling of responsibilities following the budget
vote May 19.
In the May 19 vote on
the 2016 budget, four Councilors were in the majority in
voting to eliminate the
Human Resources (HR)
Director position, with the
rationale that the duties
could be redistributed among the Finance, Administration and Human Resources staff. Susan Hickey,
Chief Financial Officer and
now Interim Town Adminis-
trator, assumed the function
of HR Director.
At the Sept. 1 Town
Council meeting, Hickey
said she would like to hire a
company to weigh the job
descriptions for the Human
Resources staff “against the
skills we have.”
Hickey also informed
the board she would like to
fill two budgeted positions
in the Finance department
that are currently unstaffed:
a part-time collection agent
and a part-time bookkeeping
position she would like to
upgrade to full-time internal
auditor. Hickey said the
money was in the budget for
the positions due to the
retirement of two people in
While Hickey technical-
ly does not need Council
approval for the actions, she
said she was seeking its
Councilor Joshua Bourdon observed that Human
Resources was a “hot topic”
during budget season. “We
are currently in litigation,”
he said, “and there are eight
petition items that will be
reviewed in Superior Court.
Before we spend any money
for an analysis, I think we
should wait and see the
result of the court case.”
Councilor Mark Osborne said he was happy to see
a study of every town department to measure its efficiency. “It just makes
sense,” he said.
Osborne also said he

Brush Fires Burn, Rekindle;
Mutual Aid Called In
As a brush fire in the
Symphony Lane area remained a challenge, Derry
Fire Chief Michael Gagnon
reminded residents to observe the burning permit ban
until the needed rains come
to the area.
The fire was first noted
on Sept. 2, when Fire Dispatch was alerted to a brush
fire near the power lines in
the area of Pingree Hill
Road. Crews responded immediately, Gagnon said, and
found a 2-acre area behind 2
Symphony Lane ablaze.
“We had everyone on
duty, plus mutual aid, plus
personnel from New Hampshire Forest and Lands,”
Gagnon said.
The initial response was
by Engine 1, Task Force 2
and a battalion chief. Due to
the difficult terrain, off-road
“gator” units were provided
by Chester and Auburn,
along with an additional
Forestry unit and Forestry
tanker from Chester.
The crews reported the 2
acres ablaze with wind-driven fire in dry conditions, and
another Forestry unit from
Derry was supplied. Londonderry, Hooksett and Atkinson provided fire engines

‘Majority Wins’ Attitude a Loser
The Derry Town Council might get
some help in the next year or two when
it comes to developing a budget - it
established a budget advisory committee
at its most recent meeting.
Unfortunately – and flying in the
face of a suggestion made by a resident
at a previous Council meeting – the
make-up of the committee does nothing
to address the widespread feeling in
town that the average taxpayer is not
being heard.
The committee will be composed of
Town officials and bankers – not tempered at all by the average citizen.
Meanwhile, the average citizens in
Derry have been busy putting their
money where their mouth is – contributing to the cost of a pending lawsuit
against this same Town Council for turning down eight petitions that seek a
revote on the May budget cuts.
In May, the 4-3 Council voted to
slash deeply into the budget, resulting in
cuts to personnel and overtime in fire,
police and public works departments,
eliminating the Human Resources director post, and shutting a fire station. Since
then, residents have signed petitions that
they base on the Town Charter – directing the Council to take a revote on those
eight decisions, or allow the questions to
go to a vote of the people.
After the Town Council, again in a 43 vote, refused to agree to a revote or
election, citing legal counsel opinion, residents emptied their pockets to take the
matter to court, where it is set to be heard
Sept. 9, after this edition goes to press.
When a citizen made his budget
committee request in August, he suggested a group similar to the School District’s Fiscal Advisory Committee and to
budget committees in SB 2 towns. He
wanted to see one councilor from each
of the opposing views on the committee
and several residents.
While the new committee does
include one Town Councilor from each
side, the community members are all fiscal specialists. We’re sure their knowledge of banking is solid, but the view of
the average taxpayer – the one paying
the bills and potentially losing out on
services - is missing.
It’s time for change.
We’d like to see the Council welcome
people from all viewpoints, and actually
listen to them. We’d like to see far more
transparency and a lot less gaveling. And
we’d like to see genuine interest in the
viewpoints of Derry residents of differing
perspectives. That’s sadly lacking in the
“majority wins” Council of today, which
doesn’t even pay lip service to listening to
views different from its own.

down deep,” Gagnon explained. “It travels along the
tree root system underground, and can reignite as
far as 100 feet away.”
On Saturday all Derry
companies on duty responded, along with Windham,
Chester and Auburn. The
Salvation Army came with
its canteen and other aid,
and residents of the area
pitched in. The Rodgers
family, owners of 2 Symphony Lane, were especially
helpful, Gagnon said, with
providing material assistance and allowing fire
crews to access the area
through their property.
Crews continued to look
for hot spots Sunday morning, afternoon and early
evening, with a significant
fire breaking out later Sunday evening. This brought
all the Derry companies out
again, with 25,000 gallons
of water needed to subdue
the blaze. More hot spots
were noted on Monday
morning, afternoon and
evening, Sept. 7, with crews
treating them as they popped
By Monday night the fire
appeared to be extinguished,
Gagnon said, but he’s not
taking any chances and will
send crews out to the area
“every two or three hours
until it rains.”
Gagnon noted that illegal
campfires are suspected as
the cause of both fires. Residents are reminded that
wooded areas are dry right
now and are urged to use
caution with open flames. A
permit to kindle a fire is
always required unless there
is a 100-foot radius of complete snow cover in the area
where the fire is to be kindled.
While Gagnon’s department will not issue burn permits until there’s a soaking
rain, he took the opportunity
to remind residents that
campfires must be com-
pletely extinguished. If not,
he said, “they can burn deep
in the soil.”
While this fire used a
significant amount of mutual aid, Gagnon said the use
of neighboring companies
had no correlation to recent
budget cuts for his department. “This fire,” he said,
“would have required mutual aid whether or not the
Hampstead Road station
was operative.” The Hampstead Road station closed
July 1 due to budget cuts.
Derry used mutual aid
13 times in July compared to
18 times in July 2014, “so
that actually went down,”
Gagnon said. But in August
2014 Derry used mutual aid
four times, compared to 17
times this August.
In August 2014 the department responded to 257
calls and in August 2015,
383 calls. “The call volume
has gone up,” Gagnon said.
The number of times
Derry has gone out on mutual aid calls to other communities is holding its own,
with 17 mutual aid calls in
July 2014 and 16 in July
2015. The department helped other communities five
times in August 2014 and
seven times in August 2015,
he said.
Gagnon noted that 52
percent of the calls this July
and August were simultaneous calls, meaning the
department already had personnel committed to another
But that doesn’t mean
that they are calling mutual
aid, he added. It just means
that of the 12 firefighters on
a regular shift, some of the
resources are already committed.
Gagnon also expressed a
deep appreciation for mutual
aid. “The system works very
well, and we are grateful
whenever another community responds,” he said.

Council Turns Down Zoning, Highway Safety Hopefuls
The Derry Town Council
has turned down two prospective applicants for board
and committee membership.
At its Sept. 1 meeting,
the Council voted 4-3 to
deny Joseph Carnevale the
opportunity to step into a
vacant alternate position
with the Zoning Board of
Adjustment (ZBA).
Carnevale was formerly
a full member of the board,
but stepped down last year
because he was temporarily
living in Londonderry.
While living in Londonderry, he was arrested May
29, 2014 and charged with
two counts of identity fraud
and two counts of tampering
with public or private
records. At that time, his
address was listed as 1
Charleston Ave. #30 in Londonderry. In a subsequent
arrest May 30 for Cruelty to
Animals, he also gave his
address as 1 Charleston Ave.
At the time of his arrest,
Londonderry Det. Chris
Olsen said the two counts of
identity fraud came from
Carnevale’s allegedly creating documents that had the
appearance of coming from
a doctor’s office. “There
were court orders he had to
abide by and he clearly was
not abiding by them, so he
created the documents and
used the doctor’s name,”
Olsen said.
Creating the documents
led to the second two charges of tampering with public
or private records.
“The identity theft charges come from using the
doctor’s name and the tampering with documents
charges from creating the
documents,” Olsen said.
The animal cruelty charges came when a 1-year-old
pit bull was discovered in
“less than desirable conditions” at Carnevale’s home,
with allegations that the dog
was confined to a small crate
for the majority of the day
and had developed dermatitis pads on its legs from
lying in its own urine.”
Olsen said at the time that
the dog was in the crate up
to 23 hours per day.
RSA 673:3 requires that
Zoning Board members
“must be a resident of the
municipality in order to be
appointed or elected.”
Carnevale is listed as the
owner of 13 Bradford St. in
Derry, which he purchased
in April 2006.
Councilor Mark Osborne questioned Carnevale’s current residency,
and Councilor Phyllis Katsakiores confirmed that he
was back in Derry and a
neighbor of hers. “He owns
property in Derry and he’s
living here now,” Katsakiores said.
Councilor Al Dimmock
said that during Carnevale’s
time on the ZBA, he questioned Carnevale about his
status. “He swore that he
was a resident and refused to
step down,” Dimmock said.
Katsakiores advocated
for Carnevale, saying, “His
problems are fixed and he’s
back in town. We all run into
trouble from time to time.”
Katsakiores, Joshua Bourdon and Richard Tripp voted
for Carnevale, while Chairman Tom Cardon, Mark
Osborne, David Fischer and
Dimmock voted against
The board also voted 33-1 not to approve Charles
Foote as a member of the
Highway Safety Committee.
Katsakiores, Bourdon and
Tripp voted for Foote, Cardon, Fischer and Dimmock
voted against him, and
Osborne abstained.
While Foote has publicly
criticized the Council for its
budget votes, Cardon said
that was not his issue in voting against the appointment.
“I had very good reasons,”
he said, declining to comment on the specifics.
Cardon said that by the
time a vote comes to him, he
usually knows the way it’s
going to go. “I make the
deciding vote, and I knew
there was not enough to support him,” he said of Foote.
Dimmock said in a
phone interview Friday that
Foote was not his choice for
Safety. “I just don’t think he
fits the profile of what they
want on that committee,”
Dimmock, a former member
of the committee, said.
He declined to specify,
but said he wouldn’t have
voted for Foote anyway
because Foote had not come
to the Council meeting.
Dimmock has a policy of
not voting for nominees who
do not attend the meeting in
order to be interviewed.
Osborne said he abstained because he didn’t
think he could be impartial,
judging by the Council’s
past history with Foote. “I
believe any time anyone
applies for anything where a
Council vote is required,
they deserve transparency
and objectivity,” he said.
Osborne said he thought
Foote should get “as impartial a vote as all our nominees,” and he didn’t think he
could give it so he abstained.
“I could not be impartial,” Osborne said.
He added that he and the
other Councilors did not discuss Foote before the meeting.
Councilor David Fischer
did not return calls for comment.
Stark Road Quilting Studio Gets Home Business Approval
A new quilting studio is
opening in a Derry home
after approval by the Zoning
Board of Adjustment.
Mary Kendall, owner of

Zoning Board Denies Request for Garage Addition
A Derry couple will go
back to the drawing board
after the Zoning Board of
Adjustment (ZBA) declined
their request to place a “cold
storage facility” within the
15-foot setback.
Philip and Lorraine
Peterson appeared at the
Sept. 4 meeting of the ZBA
to request a variance to construct the facility as an addition to their existing garage
at 31 Jefferson St.
The parcel is PID 29016
and is zoned MHDR (Medium High Density Residential).
Philip Peterson had
another commitment, and
Lorraine Peterson represented the family in the first half
of the hearing. She read the
conditions for a variance,
• The spirit of the ordinance will be observed.
Peterson said the garage
addition would improve the
appearance of her lot, allowing her and her husband to
take down a tent they’ve
been using for projects, and
would also improve their
property values and those of
• The value of surrounding properties would not
diminish. Peterson cited the
above reasons.
• Literal enforcement
would cause unnecessary
hardship. Peterson said,
“My husband is a Vietnamera veteran. He suffers from
chilblains and he cannot
work outside if the temperature is below 50 degrees,”
she said.
Peterson said her husband recently purchased a
1937 Chevrolet sedan and
would like to work on it. She
explained that the storage
facility would allow him to
work in the original garage,
which has a wood stove, and
to store yard machines and
other items in the new facility.
• The proposed use is
reasonable. “There is not
enough room in the driveway or garage,” Peterson
“My husband cannot do
projects and have sufficient
storage at the same time,”
she said. “This would allow
us to take down the big
green tent.”
Her husband is retired
and “needs to do something
enjoyable,” she said. “But
that car needs to not be in
inclement weather. And
there’s so much stuff in the
garage now, we can’t get the
vehicle in it.”
The cold storage facility
would be adequate housing
at 10x20 square feet for the
family’s motorcycle, lawn
tractor, other tractor, lawnmower and snowblower.
Farm Stand
Also, she said, “He has
promised to make me a
butcher-block table.”
Peterson pointed out that
her husband worked as a
construction professional
and would be doing the
work himself.
She pointed to other
projects the ZBA has
approved over the years,
including a porch, new master bedroom, and accessory
apartment for an aging aunt.
But that was also the
problem board members
saw, citing a “cluttered”
appearance if they approved
the variance.
Vice-Chair Allan Virr
asked how far from the lot
line the proposed addition
would be, and Peterson said
it would be 6 feet from the
side lot line. The ordinance
calls for 15 feet.
“There is a lot going on
on that property,” Code
Enforcement Officer Bob
Mackey said. “Obviously
they have to get a building
permit and give us the
Chairman Lynn Perkins
asked why a lean-to or freestanding temporary shed
would not work for the
Petersons, and Lorraine
Peterson said, “They are not
sturdy enough. We want to
build to last and be done
with it.”
Perkins observed that he
was concerned about “sprawl,”
and Virr said, “The sticking
point for me is that this
house has been tacked on
here, tacked on there, and
this would be 6 feet from the
lot line. The idea of zoning
is to control congestion.”
Lorraine Peterson responded that their additions
have improved the property,
noting that the house was
812 square feet when they
bought it in 2000.
The board also tossed
around the term “cold storage,” noting that to them it
implied a refrigeration unit
or deep-freeze, and they
agreed to call the addition a
garage addition or shed.
Board members noted
that Lorraine Peterson’s
name was not on the deed.
She said, “This is a second mortgage and his age
was part of the requirement.
I am much younger than he
“Somebody has to have
authority to represent this
case,” Virr countered. “If
your name is not on the
deed, what would you do if
something happened to
That’s not likely, Lorraine Peterson responded,
saying, “With my medical
issues, I’m going to go sooner.”
“I am wrestling with a
legal issue - can we even
rule on this?” Perkins
Philip Peterson arrived
halfway through the hearing. “I am the owner,” he
Virr recapped their concerns. “The additions seem
to be going on and on,” he
said. “If it’s 10 feet, 12 feet
from the lot line, that’s one
thing. But you want only 6
Board member Teresa
Hampton advocated for the
Petersons, citing a letter
from abutter Jim Lanphier.
“He has no problem with it,”
she said. “Also, it’s a deadend street.”
Perkins asked why the
structure couldn’t be a carport, and Lorraine Peterson
said that would not protect
their machines from the elements.
“I have a concern about a
permanent structure encroaching on the boundary,”
Perkins countered.
A carport would not give
the protection he’s looking
for, Phil Peterson said.
He said he had also
thought about putting a freestanding shed nearer to the
front of the driveway.
Lorraine Peterson objected, “It’s the same setback for a shed. Wouldn’t it
make more sense to go for a
permanent structure?”
Perkins allowed that it
was the same setback requirement, but that he was
more comfortable granting a
variance for a freestanding
“A shed can be moved,
and this board would be
more amenable to that,” Virr
Hampton asked Phil
Peterson if he would consider asking for a freestanding
shed and Peterson said, “I’m
a realist. If you’re opposed
to this idea, a shed could
But he couldn’t use the
same application, Mackey
said, noting, “You will have
to withdraw your application and submit a new one.”
The Petersons decided to
go ahead with the approval
process anyway.
In the deliberative session, member Steve Coppolo said he had issues with
the “unnecessary hardship”
“I don’t see where it
can’t be put on another part
of the property,” he said.
Coppolo referred to the
“aesthetics of now” and that
the garage addition was better than the tent. “But the
law is the law,” he added.
Member Heather Evans
agreed about the unnecessary hardship. “If they put
the addition at the front of
the garage it would be less
encroachment on the neighbors,” she said.
Hampton advocated for
the couple, saying any other
place near the house would
block a window. “The only
place it could go would be in
that area,” she said. “It needs
to be near the garage.”
The way the property
looks should be a personal
matter, she added.
Virr expressed concern
about the 6-foot setback and
the original garage being
heated with a wood stove. If
there were a fire, he said,
that would allow Derry Fire

Council to Decide Use of Calvary Bible Church Donation
It isn’t often that outside
entities give the town
money, and it’s even less frequent when that money has
no strings attached.
Interim Town Administrator Susan Hickey announced at the Sept. 1 Town
Council meeting that Calvary Bible Church in East
Derry has donated $10,000
to the town in celebration of
its anniversary.
Hickey and other town
officials have been brainstorming ideas for the windfall and came up with the
• Signs to mark the Robert Frost/Old Stage Coach
Scenic Byway, estimated at
$2,000 for 18 signs;
• Planting azaleas along
the MacGregor Park side of
the Derry Public Library, to
replace the Burning Bushes;
• Digitizing one of the
local newspapers to make it
available on the Derry Public
Library Web site, $105 per
reel with 40 reels to do; or
• Paving the Rail Trail
from Derry to Londonderry.
The church wants to see
projects that would bring the
most benefit to Derry residents, Hickey told the
The Council welcomed
the gift, with both Chairman
Tom Cardon and member
Richard Tripp expressing
interest in a paved Rail Trail.
Hickey wrote in an email after the meeting that
cost estimates are still being
gathered, with final information available for the
next Town Council meeting.
Tony Bourassa, a deacon
with Calvary Bible Church,
said in a phone interview
Aug. 3 that the church is celebrating its 50th anniversary
and wanted to do something
to benefit the community.
“We are thankful to be a
part of this community, and
we want to continue to support it,” Bourassa said.
Bourassa and his committee set aside the funds
and decided to ask the town
for spending options. “We
figured they could best iden-
tify the needs,” he said. The
church group discussed
some ideas, including the
funding of Derryfest when
the fall festival was in jeopardy. It has since been
revived; see related story
page 10.
They determined that
they wanted a project that
would benefit the most residents, and left that in the
hands of the Council.
“They will come back to
us and tell us what they want
to do,” Bourassa said.
Though no decisions
were made Tuesday night,
Bourassa observed that
paving the Rail Trail “struck
a chord” with the Council.
At the Sept. 1 meeting
Cardon also held a moment
of silence for School Board
member Neal Ochs, who
died in July. Ochs was also a
former Planning Board
The Council also voted
to waive the building permit
fees for the Derry Village
Rotary Club for building a
pavilion at the Boys and
Girls Club of Greater Derry.

the analysts come to Derry.

Hickey said.

troller Janice Mobsby, Senior
Accountant Mark Fleischer,
Payroll and Benefits Specialist Robert McCarthy and
Accounts Payable Bookkeeper Katherine Arsenault
as the forces behind Derry’s
continued success.
“This is an important
she said.
Hickey said, “The staff
has shrunk and some judgments need to be made.”
Councilor Richard Tripp
agreed with Osborne that
“we need to take a look at all
the departments.”
The Human Resources
position is one of eight petition items that were brought
to the Council as “referendum petitions” under the
Town Charter. A group of
residents is seeking to
restore eight of the items cut
from the budget, including
Human Resources. According to the Charter, a referendum petition must be acted
upon by the Council, to
either reverse its decision or
hold a special election. In a
July 28 special meeting the
majority of the Council
declined to consider the petitions, citing a legal opinion
that referendum petitions do
not apply to budget items.
The residents and the
Council were scheduled to
appear in court Sept. 9, after
the Nutfield News went to
press, to resolve the issue.

Lot Line Adjustment on North Shore Gets OK
In one of its shortest
meetings ever, the Derry
Planning Board approved a
lot line adjustment for a
North Shore Road couple.
Charles and Roberta
Coviello, owners of 45
North Shore Road, appeared
before the board at its Sept.
2 meeting along with surveyor Neil McCarthy of
Promised Land Surveying to
discuss moving their lot line
2.4 square feet away from
Thomas and Virginia Legare, their abutters at 47
North Shore Road.
McCarthy said the previous lot line had been set in
1994 between the Coviellos
and the former owners of 47
North Shore Road. Over the
years, he said, it became evident that in winter the snow
removal encroached on the
Legares’ property.
“Over years of use,”
McCarthy said, “when Mr.
Coviello went to plow, it
would push the snow on to
his neighbors’ property.”
By moving the lot line
2.4 square feet, “It will
allow the Coviellos to throw
the snow on their own property,” McCarthy said.
The board voted 8-0 to
approve the plan and to take
jurisdiction of it.

Stockbridge Schedule Blends Professional Performances, Student Classes
Matt Cahoon, director of
the Stockbridge Theatre at
Pinkerton Academy, saw the
Bridgman/Packard Dance
Company in New York City
and knew he had to have
them. “They are a husbandand-wife dance company
who work extensively with
video projection,” he said.
“They’ll be here for three
days in April. They’ll do one
show onstage and another
piece called ‘Truck,’ which
they perform out of the back
of a U-Haul truck.”
Cahoon added, “I first
saw them on a loading dock
in New York.”
The 2015-16 season of
the Stockbridge Theatre will
see old favorites, innovations and everything in between. The Pinkerton community will say “farewell”
to a longtime Fine Arts staff
member and “hello” to a
Cahoon took a few minutes recently to expand on
what Stockbridge patrons
can expect this year.
The Flamenco team
“Flamenco Vivo” will be in
residence Nov. 19, performing and doing workshops
with students. “We are really excited to have them on
campus,” Cahoon said, adding that the school is in the
process of growing its dance

“But 10 of them belong to
Arturo Sandoval.” The jazz
giant will perform Oct. 15
on stage, and his visit will
include a master class for
music students.
“Breaking The Surface”
Jan. 22, will be presented by
“Air Realistic.” “They flood
the stage with 3 inches of
water, and the aerial dance
piece takes place over the
water,” Cahoon said.
Bridgman/Packard will
perform April 7 and 8. Other
artists include blues performer Jonny Lang, Oct. 2;
Livingston Taylor and Tom
Chapin, Oct. 9; Turtle Island
Quartet, Feb. 19; and Aquila
Theater’s “Romeo and Juliet,” March 26 and 28.
The December holidays
are Stockbridge’s gift to the
community, with two major
shows, Cahoon said. The
New Hampshire Philharmonic will hold its annual
Holiday Pops concert the
weekend after Thanksgiving,
and “Rockapella” will return
Dec. 11 for a vocal program
of holiday favorites. In addition, Cahoon said, the theater
is rented out to two dance
groups, Gate City Ballet and
Ballet Misha, each of which
will put its own spin on the
holiday classic “The Nutcracker.”
The Pinkerton band and
choral groups will also pres-

Pinkerton Academy, stands in the box office before

ent concerts, he said.
Cahoon said he has three
ways of bringing artists to
the stage. One is Pinkerton’s
direct contracting with the
performers, whom he meets
through agents or by attending their shows; a second is
having an outside group rent
the theater, as with the ballet
troupes; and the third is the
high school’s own artists
gracing the stage. These
include student concerts and
recitals and the school’s two
annual drama productions.
The Pinkerton spring
musical is slated for March
17-20, but he doesn’t have
the show’s name yet,
Cahoon said.
The fall play will be
“Alice In Wonderland,” in
honor of the book’s 150th
anniversary, and it will be
directed by longtime faculty
member Ann West. “Alice,”
presented Nov. 12-15, will
be West’s 56th and final
show, Cahoon said.
He said West is in good
health but wants to do other
things, such as traveling, and
added that a celebration will
be held to mark her tenure at
the school.
Children’s programming
includes “Curious George”
Oct. 6; “Goodnight Moon”
and “The Runaway Bunny,”
Oct. 23 and 24; “Percy Jackson and The Lightning
Thief,” Dec. 2; “Aesop’s
Fables,” March 11; “The
Very Hungry Caterpillar,”
April 15 and 16; and “Junie
B. Jones,” May 20.
Perhaps the biggest coup
for the Stockbridge is the
residency by the New Hampshire Philharmonic Orchestra. The group has made
Pinkerton its headquarters
this year and will present
several concerts under its
roof, in addition to working
with student music groups.
Cahoon is still working
out the details as to what the
residency will mean. The
school and orchestra will
split the revenue from a couple of concerts, the Holiday
Pops and “Carmina Burana”
in May, he said.
Cahoon approached the
Philharmonic last year after
the group performed its
2014 Holiday Pops concert.
He had attended one of its
concerts at the Palace Theatre in Manchester, which
blended music with Shakespeare, and, said, “I loved
the concept.” He met with
one of the board members
Dec. 22.
The first Pops concert on
campus will be Sept. 20 and
will feature Tchaikovsky,
Cahoon said. The group
rehearses on Sunday nights,
and when he comes in to
prep things for Monday
morning, “It’s awesome to
hear the music in the halls.”

Full House Expected at Sept. 19 Derryfest at MacGregor Park
It was more than Jodi
Nelson had hoped for.
Nelson, a new volunteer
with Derryfest, has seen
support for the fall festival
grow since she signed on in
early summer. The event is
growing in both vendor and
sponsor support, and she
expects to see a full house or field - when the event
takes place Sept. 19 at MacGregor Park.
At press time registered
vendors - nonprofits, commercial and political - were
at 120, which Nelson said is
“higher than usual.” A completed map of vendor spots
should be on the Web site at soon, she
Sponsorship is also up.
Eddie Leon and his La Carreta Restaurant are underwriting much of the event as
a Platinum Sponsor, she
Full Sponsors, the next
level, include The Copper
Door Restaurant, Betley
Chevrolet, Nutfield Publishing (publishers of the Nutfield News), Spindel Eye,
Parkland Medical Center,
Kids Coop Theatre, Derry
News, Granite Ridge Energy, Bringing Derry Together, the New Hampshire
Academie of Dance and the
Derry Education Association.
“People,” Nelson said,
“have really stepped up.”
Derryfest almost didn’t
happen this year after Derry
Parks and Recreation Director Eric Bodenrader, citing
budget cuts, told the committee he could no longer
supply town workers or
equipment. The committee
was facing its own losses
after several key members
retired, and though it had
affiliated with the Greater
Derry Arts Council, committee members said they
could not put on the festival
this year.
But the Town Council,
Bodenrader and the Arts
Council worked out a deal
where the town would bill
the Arts Council for its participation, and a call for new
volunteers brought enough
people to put on the event.
Including Nelson, who
said she is heartened by the
response and will be involved again next year.
She knew there would be
some kind of festival, Nelson said, “but I thought it
would be a little downscale.”
Instead, she said, the response has been “incredible.”
“It’s a great group of
people,” she said. “I’m definitely sticking around for
next year.”
The weekend begins Friday, Sept. 11, at noon when

Injury-Addled Astro Gridders Still Win Big in Opener
said. “We’re not used to having people move the ball
down the field on us.”
It took the hosts less than
four minutes to place the
first points up on the scoreboard as the Astros reeled
off an eight-play drive that
culminated with a one-yard
scoring push by Curley.
The Pinkerton lead grew
to 14-0 early in quarter two
when the locals put together
a 13-play drive that ended
when Curley jaunted two
yards to pay-dirt with 9:57
remaining in the half.
A little more than three
minutes later the Astros’
spirited crowd got to celebrate Dattilo’s 90-yard punt
return for points, and it
appeared as though the hosts
were en route to a blowout.
But the Spaulding off-
The Pinkerton Academy
2015 Astros, the defending
Division I champions, expected to step into the new
campaign with star senior
halfback T.J. Urbanik as the
centerpiece of their offense.
But that plan evaporated
with a knee injury suffered
by Urbanik - who has also
been a standout defensive
back for the locals - while he
was long jumping for the PA
boys’ spring track team this
past spring. The injury has
cropped back up and will
require surgery and keep
him on the sidelines for the
entire 2015 grid campaign
(see related story page 12).
Also sidelined with a
knee injury is junior halfback and defensive back
Nick Coombs, who would
ordinarily have stepped into
Urbanik’s role as the Astros’
top running back.
But when the PA crew
opened its 2015 season by
hosting the Spaulding High
Red Raiders of Rochester in
Derry Friday night, Sept. 4,
Coombs and Urbanik stood
side by side in street clothes
on their team’s sideline.
In light of those two
subtractions from their lineup, the fact that the Astros
still managed to wallop the
Red Raider squad 36-12 is
impressive, even if the local
team’s performance was a
bit short of overwhelming
Astro running back Nico Buccieri was off to the races on

in spots.
“It was a little ragged,”
admitted PA coach Brain
O’Reilly. “It was a tough
week of practice. We didn’t
practice well to be honest, and
I didn’t know if we’d be ready
tonight. But we did our job
and what we needed to do.”
Pinkerton exhibited its
depth at running back by tallying a decent 232 rushing
yards, with senior halfback
Brett Dattilo leading the
way by gaining 82 yards on
10 carries - he also ran back
a punt 90 yards for a score and junior fullback Michael
Curley sprinting for two
touchdowns and 53 yards on
nine runs.
Junior quarterback Ryan
Albrecht added five pass
completions for 83 yards as
the victorious hosts finished
the evening with a solid 315
yards worth of offense, and
the PA defense held the visiting Raiders to 239 total on
188 rushing and 51 passing.
But O’Reilly wasn’t overly
enthused with segments of
the job which his defense
did on this night.
“We have to shore up

ebbed away.
When play resumed, the
visitors trimmed the PA lead
back to nine points at 21-12
by scoring on an eight-play
drive, but the Raiders would
get no closer.
The Astros did all the
rest of the scoring, thanks to
a 26-yard pass connection

Pinkerton Boy Booters Start the 2015 Campaign at 0-2
2014 Division I championship last autumn, due to
numerous personnel shifts.
The Pinkerton coach has
plenty of reasons to think his
2015 Astros can win plenty
of games this fall, but the
crew is enduring a rough
start to the new campaign,
dropping one-goal decisions
to both the Merrimack High
Tomahawks and the Nashua
South Purple Panthers to
find itself grasping an 0-2
record in the early going.
“This has been a bit of a
surprise thus far,” said
Boles. “We know we have a
target on our backs and
teams are going to give us
their A-plus effort. That’s
not the surprising part. What
is surprising is the way
we’ve responded thus far.
We need to solve some
issues in quick fashion because we face two top-four

Rt. 102, Hudson, NH
In the 1-0, season-opening loss to Merrimack in
Derry Tuesday, Sept. 1, the
visiting Tomahawks potted
the lone goal of the day on a
penalty kick 23 minutes into
the second half.
The hosts peppered the
Merrimack cage with shots,
but Merrimack goalie Derek
Staradub turned aside all 11
that reached him and bagged
the shutout.
“We knocked on the
door all afternoon but couldn’t find the back of the net,”
lamented Boles.
Pinkerton was paced by
senior captains Colin Coutts
and Stuart Graves as well as
sophomores Cole Perry and
Nolan Morrison.
“This was a very frustrating game for us,” added
Boles. “We just couldn’t
find the back of the net with
our numerous opportunities.
When you outshoot your
opponent by the margin that
we did (11-2), we expect to
gain a victory. I hope we can
find a way to solve this issue
soon or we will have a difficult road ahead of us.”
Then in its first road contest two days later, the academy crew grasped a 1-0 lead
at halftime of its battle with
Nashua South in the Gate
City, but the Purple Panthers
popped home two shots in
the second half to claim a 21 win and advance to 1-1 on
the young season.
Cobi Moore handed the
locals a 1-0 lead when he
was set up by teammate
Trevor Morrison 15 minutes
into the opening stanza. But
the Nashuans answered with
goals eight minutes into the
second half and then five
minutes later to snag a 2-1
lead they’d never relinquish.
Pinkerton goalie Hayden
Pavao made five saves on
seven South shots on net,
and his teammates smacked
nine blasts on Panthers’
keeper Chris Junez.
Urbanik Sidelined for the Season
Spaulding High Red Raiders
in Derry last week, Urbanik
was on the sidelines in street
clothes. After the game,
coach Brian O’Reilly said
the standout running back
and defensive back won’t be
able to play for the Astros
this season due to a right
knee injury.
He suffered a partially
torn meniscus in the knee
while long jumping for the
Pinkerton boys’ spring track
team this past spring, but he
attempted to play football
wearing a brace this summer
during training camp.
“We knew he was going
to give it a go, but it locked
up during a scrimmage and
now he’s going to be having
surgery,” said O’Reilly.
Urbanik and his parents,
Todd and Debbie, had been
visiting colleges anticipating
that T.J. would be able to
play college football at a

Pinkerton Spirit Squad Continues to be Strong, Impressive
The old saying about the
Pinkerton Academy football
program is that it never
rebuilds, it simply reloads.
And the same thing could be
said about coach Michelle
McCarty’s Pinkerton spirit
The Lady Astros, who
are perennial state champions and have also bagged
their share of New England
championships - including
last year’s - have a slew of
seasoned veterans back in
the fold for the fall 2015
campaign, including tri-captains Maddy Garnick, Emily
Dellisola, Taylor Sullivan,
alternate captain Allie
Kirker, and Valerie Quigley,
Katiya Troutman, Megan
Decosmo, Gemma Schena,
Cameron LaRoche, Hannah
Rogers, Alyssa Daigle,
Jillian Parnigoni, Camryn
Teresky, Kendra Hicks,
Aurora Goujon, Victoria
Williams, Kailey Kirker, and
Dusty Anderson.
The 2015 crew’s promising newcomers include Anastasia Tuneberg, Madison
Francis,Kaycie Rizzo, Jacie
Harlow, Arianna Boudreau,
Alli Connell, and Kristen
When asked what her
team’s keys are to maintaining its level of success,
McCarty said, “Teamwork
makes the dream work. We
are defending champions for
10-plus seasons running. We
have to be a tight unit and
work together progressing
each practice, tackling the
obstacles in our path. We
look at each practice as an
opportunity to grow and
advance. It isn’t easy to be
‘the hunted’ because it’s
much easier to hunt. So in
order to keep our position
we must work harder, last
longer, and put in double the
effort of the other contenders in our division.”
When asked to look at
the other top competitive
spirit squads in Division I,
McCarty responded, “Dover
as always is a powerhouse to
contend with, and we push
one another and motivate
each other along the way.
There are many incredible
up and comers for D-I cheer.
Londonderry is right there,
along with Alvirne. Both
programs have wonderful
coaches and incredible athletes.”
Both the Pinkerton Academy spirit squad and the PA
football team won state titles last year, and both teams
had plenty to be excited about during the football season-opener.

Astro Golfers Sit at 4-4 in the Early Going
The Pinkerton Academy
golf squad stumbled a bit in
its two challenging road
matches late last week and
headed into Labor Day
weekend contemplating the
fact that its 2015 record had
evened at 4-4.
At the Whip-Poor-Will
Wednesday, Sept. 2, firstyear coach Jeff Sojka’s
Astros shot a strong team
score of 206 but wound up

Pinkerton’s Lauren Thibodeau tallied the top individual score of 34 with
and Lewis White each
shooting a 42.
Then the next afternoon
at the Exeter Country Club,
Sojka’s squad ended up third
out of three teams to slide
right to the .500 mark and 44.
The host Exeter High
Blue Hawks advanced to 5-1
overall by shooting a 181 on
moved to 5-1 by registering
a team score of 192, and
Pinkerton brought up the
rear with its 196.
Thibodeau once again
paced the PA drive, tying
with teammate Halpin for
eighth place - by shooting a
38. Jarrod Foster was next
for the locals with his match
score of 39.
Lady Astro Booters Start Out With Pair of Wins
Decisive victories over
the Merrimack High Lady
Tomahawks and Nashua
South Lady Purple Panthers
last week left the Pinkerton
Academy girls’ soccer team
enjoying their 2-0 record
over the Labor Day weekend.
The PA girls tallied three
unanswered goals in the second half of its Tuesday, Sept.
1 road match at Merrimack
to bag a 4-1 win, and two
days later the locals blanked
the visiting Nashua South
squad by a 4-0 mark to tally
their second success of the
young campaign.
In game number one, the
Lady Astros busted a 1-1
halftime tie, thanks to secondhalf goals from Courtney Velho (assist to Nicole
Gonya), Julia Bousquet
(from Nicole Alves), and
Reamma Romano (from
Mel Roberge) in winning
The locals had gotten
their first half tally from

Thursday, Sept. 3, the academy crew snagged a 1-0
lead in the first half on a
Bousquet marker (from
Velho) and added tallies
from Alves (from Gonya),
Bousquet again (from Romano), and Christina Ridenour (assist to Roberge) in

Lady Astro Stickers Outlast Merrimack, Mother Nature
Lightning, thunder, and
the Merrimack High Lady
Tomahawks all appeared to
be conspiring against coach
Jen Resmini and her
Pinkerton Academy field
hockey squad in its seasonopening match in Derry
Thursday, Sept. 3.
The Lady Astros and
Lady Tomahawks endured
three 30-minute delays that
were forced by thunder and
followed by lightning, and
Gabby Guerard’s first-half
goal ended up being the
margin of victory in a 1-0
decision for the host team.
Merrimack coach Ann
MacLean - a Pinkerton graduate and former athletic
standout - and her charges
had begun their season the
day before by defeating
Nashua North in a 2-0
shutout. But the Lady
Tomahawks proved unable
to find the back of the net
against Pinkerton in the
Lady Astros’ home-opener.
Goalie Abbey Doherty
was credited with four stops
in the host team’s net, and
Madison Lolicata was
responsible for setting up
Guerard on the contest’s
lone goal.
The Pinkerton crew’s
lone game this week - slated
for Wednesday, Sept. 9, at
Nashua South, after Nutfield
News press time, pitted the
1-0 Lady Astros against an
0-1 Purple Panthers’ contingent that dropped its seasonopening match 1-0 to
Manchester Memorial.
Lady Astro Spikers Smack
North Crew in 2015 Opener
The Pinkerton Academy

its hands full with the
Nashua North Lady Titans
on that opponent’s home
court in the locals’ 2015 season-opener last week. And
coach Todd Royce watched
his young women battle
their way to a 3-1 match victory.
The Lady Astros - whose
first two matches of the new
season will have been
against Nashua opponents in
the Gate City - faced off
against the North ladies last
Friday, Sept. 4, and snared
hard-fought wins of 25-22 in
game one, 25-19 in game
three, and 25-20 in contest
number four to claim the
match win.
North rebounded from
its 25-22 loss in game one
by winning game two by
that same score, but the
Lady Titans couldn’t quite
find their way past their
guests in the third or fourth
The victors received
impressive individual work
from Faolain Harrington (18
digs and three blocks),
Olivia Mathieu (14 kills),
Sara Metzger (15 assists and
four service aces), and
Hannah Leonard (12 service
points) in starting the season
with a victory.
This week, the Lady
Astros’ schedule had them
slated to return to Nashua on
Tuesday, Sept. 8, after
Nutfield News press time, to
face off against the Nashua

Boys’ Cross-Country Aims at Three-Peat
The Pinkerton Academy
boys’ cross-country team
lost a number of talented
harriers to graduation last
fall after claiming its second
consecutive Division I title.
But that fact should not lead
anyone to count the Astros
troop out of a possible threepeat this fall.
Skilled and battle-tested
seniors Tom Hanlon, Nick
Sevilla, and Sam Lanternier
have all returned to the fold
from the title-winning 2014
crew, and they and their
teammates bagged Pinker-
ton’s 10th consecutive win
in the annual Mount Washington Race recently.
“Tom Hanlon, Nick Sevilla, and Sam Lanternier
were in the top-seven all
season,” said coach Mike
Clark. “Tom and Nick were
part of the ‘Big Three’ last
year with Owen Clark, and
Sam was a solid top-seven
performer in every race.”
The Astros’ list of promising newcomers includes
senior Noah Davis, who previously played soccer and is
an indoor and outdoor track
standout at the academy as
well. Senior Jeff Reddy - a
transfer from Methuen,
Mass. - was one of the top
harriers in Massachusetts
before transferring and
Clark said, “He should be
one of the best in New
Freshman newcomer Joe
Gagnon was the team’s
number nine finisher in its
annual time trial run.
When asked what his
team’s keys are to continued
success in 2015, Clark kept
it simple, saying, “Runnning
very fast!”
The longtime PA leader
considers Londonderry and
Concord to be among the
top opponents his Astros
will battle this autumn.
