Sir Stanley awaits

Londonderry’s acting Town Manager Bill Hart didn’t want anyone to miss Stanley Cup action on Monday, June 17.

During the regular Town Council meeting, Hart invited acting fire Chief Darren O’Brien to give his presentation early so he could get home to watch the ice action.

“In order for him to see what’s ‘Bruin’ at 8 p.m.,” Hart said.

“And as long as he texts in when anybody scores,” Council Chairman John Farrell added.

Going to the dogs

Londonderry town councilors heard details about all the people who haven’t yet registered their dogs and face fines.

Dogs were due to be licensed earlier this spring, but about 1,000 still need their registrations renewed, Town Clerk Meg Seymour reported.

One town councilor urged everyone to get their dog made legal soon, himself included.

“So, folks, this is simple, get in and register your dog,” Council Chairman John Farrell said. “That includes me, who has not registered his own dog.”

Calling Mr. Rogers

Maybe the residents of Happy Lane ought to request a street name change.

All was not well in the neighborhood on the evening of June 20 and Londonderry police were called to restore peace.

The caller complained of an ongoing issue with the neighbor’s dogs. The complainant said the neighbors had left and the dogs were in the front yard, barking up a summer storm.

While speaking to dispatch, the neighbor reported the dog owners had returned home and an officer was dispatched.

The officer spoke to the pet owner, who had been home with the dogs all day. “Unit clear,” the log reported.

Ego booster

The owner of a red Volkswagen Beetle is either really important or thinks he is.

The car was spotted on Route 213 in Methuen recently, proudly bearing the vanity plate “TOP GUY.”
