Make every vote count

Derry voters in Districts 1 and 3 will vote Tuesday at Pinkerton Academy’s gym; District 2 voters head to Calvary Bible Church; and District 4 residents will cast ballots at Gilbert H. Hood Middle School.

Londonderry residents vote in the Londonderry High School gym, 295 Mammoth Road.

Polls are open in both towns from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Wishful thinking, or not

A local driver may be dreaming of the good life with a van full of kids and pets, but until then, a shiny, red Corvette will have to do.

The car parked at Hood Commons in Derry sported the plate “MYSUV.”

Snow daze

The Derry School Board may be dreaming of winter already, at least the maintenance crew is.

Business administrator Jane Simard gave an update on the district’s trucks and said all was ready for the snow to fly.

“Dare I say ... winter?” Simard said.

She said purchase orders are all set for the salt to keep the schools’ sidewalks and parking lots free of ice.

Good barking at Barka

Ernest P. Barka Elementary School is honoring students who do good deeds.

A program, “Barking up the Right Tree,” gives staff members a chance to “write up” a student seen doing something nice. That student gets his or her name on a bulletin board.

“It’s very positive,” Barka secretary Donna O’Connor said.

I before E?

During the Master Plan public workshop in Londonderry, one resident was upset with grammatical errors in the plan.

“You created a new word,” Pauline Caron said. “Alleviate is spelled with an A, not an I.”

Age discrimination

One Londonderry Middle School teacher came to grips with his age during the School Board meeting last week.

Londonderry High School student Giana Cavialere at first referred to Steve Iarocci as her “old teacher,” but corrected herself and said “former” teacher.
