No contest here

There was no lack of support when it came time to name a Conservation Commission chairman, it was all for Margie.

The motion to keep Ives on board was made by member Paul Doolittle, seconded by Paul Dionne and ...

“And I third,” Marianne Page called out.

Another member shouted, “Move the question,” and that was that. Ives said she was honored to serve again.

A tan Suburban seen on Interstate 89 bore the N.H. vanity license plate “ROOTY.”

The owner might be an oral surgeon, the owner of a stump removal business or a big fan of Basement Jaxc.

Camera shy?

During a recent meeting, Derry Zoning Board of Adjustment Chairman Alan Virr reminded anyone who was a bit camera shy and didn’t want to be on television to kindly exit the building.

“If you don’t want to be on television, now is the time to make your escape,” Virr warned.

“No medical transport required,” the police log reported.
