---- — Lions love Londonderry

Two members of the Londonderry Lions Club gave accolades to the town for its swift response in fixing the Lions Hall floor at a recent Town Council meeting.

Lion Gerald Gulezian said the club was beyond happy with the floor work and was looking forward to hosting programs and events again. He suggested maybe he could jump on the improvement bandwagon with such good results.

“Oh, and I need a new floor upstairs,” he told councilors.

Floored by success

Londonderry Town Manager Kevin Smith also heralded the quick response and success of the Lions Hall floor project.

“I’ve worked in all levels of government over the years (and people say) government never does anything quick,” Smith said. “This was the exact opposite.”

Is Prince Albert next?

Londonderry police were called to Sparhawk Drive last week by a male resident who was unhappy with a teenage neighbor.

He reported the teen “rang his doorbell and ran off.”

Don’t forget: If you have Prince Albert in a can, let him out.

Power up!

The Derry Planning Board heard details from Public Service of New Hampshire about a plan to construct new transmission lines in town to help support power service to residents.

Planning Board Chairman David Granese noted there might be a power play involved.

“With all this new power coming will our rates be going down?” he asked PSNH officials. “I guess that’s a no.”

From mailboxes to trashcans

Mailboxes are the frequent target of vandals, but a Hillside Avenue resident saw his trashcans fall victim to a reckless driver.

Police were called last week by a resident who said an unknown vehicle went off the road and hit all his cans.

Let’s hope they were empty.
