---- — Happiness is 'Bruin'

When Londonderry High School celebrated its "Day of Giving" Beautiful Lengths, some of the many people who were donating hair received special gifts to thank them for their support.

One lucky donor received an autographed puck, courtesy of the Boston Bruins. LHS teacher Steve Juster said it was the real thing.

"You don't have to bite down on it," Juster said.

Got scissors?

Everyone at Londonderry High School who was ready to donate hair during the annual "Day of Giving" event on Jan. 10 got to wear special shirts to honor the day.

Shirts sported a "Got Scissors?" logo to celebrate everyone who would be cutting their hair to support cancer patients.

Far from the madding crowd

After many days and many complaints aimed at the Fred Fuller Oil company for lack of service and no deliveries, the Hudson office was quiet last Friday. Office workers said it was a welcome calm following a big storm.

Only two people were waiting for service on Friday, a far cry from the many who lined up earlier in the week to try to get some fuel and cold relief.

Duck, duck, goose

Londonderry police were called to the intersection of Rockingham Road and Liberty Drive last week for animal control.

Two callers reported "a large goose or duck" in the middle of the road, according to the log.

It must have been a game because "no action" was required by police.

Towering debate

When Derry town councilors heard early details about a potential cell tower plan, some wondered how to make them more attractive.

How about the towers that are designed to look like actual trees? Some said that wasn't a realistic plan in more ways than one.

"For what it's worth, they don't look like pine trees," Town Councilor Neil Wetherbee said.
