---- — What’s for dinner?

During a recent tour of Derry’s Central Fire Station, 16 local Girl Scouts and their leaders noticed how good the station was smelling.

Firefighter Josh Sturges told the young girls that his buddy was in the kitchen, cooking pork chops for the firefighters’ dinner.

“But I’m not sure we have enough pork chops for everybody tonight,” Sturges said.

Final exams can’t wait

A student called Londonderry police Jan. 22 to report he had hit a sign at the corner of Hardy and Bancroft Roads with his Jeep Wrangler.

He wasn’t sure what kind of a sign, he told dispatch, “maybe a caution turn.”

But he couldn’t stay at the scene to wait for police, he said, because he had to get to school for final exams.

The sign turned out to be broken off at the base. An officer remained at the scene, according to the police log, awaiting the teenager’s mother.

Team play

The Derry Demons and the Derry Wolverines have joined forces for the 2013 season.

It’s a partnership long overdue, bringing together two local levels of youth football and cheer.

There’s a meeting Monday for interested parties. See Sports, Page 12 for details.

Going up or down?

Heads are spinning at the gas pumps these days.

Prices start to drop, then climb, only to decrease before going up again.

Average prices in the Granite State have risen 4.2 cents a gallon over the past week, according to GasBuddy.

That’s close to a national per-gallon increase of 4.5 cents a gallon for the same period.

The $3.44 a gallon average is up 1 cent from a year ago, up 5.5 cents from a month ago.
