---- — Promotional materials

Derry Planning Board Chairman David Granese always greets his fellow board members prior to the start of a meeting. That welcome also includes planning assistant Elizabeth Robidoux.

At a recent meeting, Granese introduced Robidoux as “assistant director of planning.”

“If I keep on saying that, you’ll have to get a promotion,” he told her.

Animal advocate?

A light green Buick sedan was spotted driving past Hood Pond last week.

It carried the vanity license plate “PAW.”

We have to assume the driver is an animal lover or perhaps a dog obedience trainer.

Some welcome home

Londonderry police were called to a Hovey Road home late Saturday night for a report of criminal mischief.

But this incident went beyond what might be considered usual mischief.

The family arrived home to find their mailbox “flattened” and, oddly enough, a refrigerator on their front lawn.

Bad dog

An Old Derry Road resident might need a new kennel or some obedience classes.

Londonderry police responded to a residential alarm there just before 8 p.m. Friday. There was a report of an interior motion detector alerting the alarm company to an intruder.

The resident responded after police and here’s what they found: “K-9 got out of his crate.”

First time’s a charm?

As Londonderry town councilors delved into an early-morning budget workshop Saturday, Council Chairman John Farrell gave fire Chief Darren O’Brien a big thumbs up prior to his presentation.

“This is your first budget presentation after taking over as chief,” he said. “We wish you luck.”
