Orderly fashion

New faces, new year and a new seating chart.

Derry town councilors mixed it up a bit and are now seated in a different formation. New chairman Mark Osborne is now seated center stage. Other are also now sitting in different places.

“I had to switch chairs and so should everybody else,” Osborne noted.

It’s about time

When Derry’s acting town administrator Larry Budreau got ready to give his budget presentation to Town Council complete with projector slides, he had time on his mind.

“The last time I had slides, I was told I spoke for 50 minutes,” Budreau said. “I told chairman (Mark) Osborne, no more than 10 minutes.”

Spring fever hits

It was warm last week, but not that warm.

Londonderry police were called to Kendall Pond Road at 6:39 p.m. Wednesday for an unusual complaint.

“Caller reports a group of kids jumping into the water,” the log reads.

We can only hope the water in question was a mud puddle.

This little piggy ...

Londonderry police were called to Wilson Road last week for a report of “loose pigs in the roadway.”

The porky bunch must have gone to market or home because animal control “could not locate.”

Kayaking anyone?

After Londonderry North School Elementary recently suffered some water damage, principal Mary Coltin had a good sense of humor about her school situation at a recent School Board meeting.

She told superintendent Nate Greenberg that someone had called her requesting swimming lessons at North School as an extracurricular activity.

“How about kayaking? Greenberg asked.

Let it go

Londonderry North School students took the water damage at their school in stride, offering words of encouragement to their teachers and staff.

Principal Mary Coltin said her students were troopers and took the soggy situation well.

“They were singing that song from the move ‘Frozen’ called ‘Let it Go,’” Coltin said.
