---- — Oh, nuts!

Derry school superintendent Laura Nelson told the School Board opening day last week went smoothly, with only a few small glitches.“A squirrel took the power down momentarily at one school,” Nelson said. “Other than that, we had a great day.”

Let go of your Legos

Derry Public Library needs Legos.

That means anyone with mismatched Lego sets or extra pieces in all colors and sizes can donate unused pieces to the library for its collection.

Stop by the library to drop off Legos that will be put to a good use by the library’s youngest patrons.

Cat burglar strikes

Londonderry police were called to a Young Road residence last week for “interior zone motion.”

It seems the resident feline was to blame.

“Dispatch made contact with homeowner, who advised the motion detector was left on by accident and the cat set it off,” the log reported. “No one should be on scene. Residence secure.”

No rust visible

A red Saturn Vue seen on Route 1-A appeared to be in excellent shape.

Perhaps the owner has a garage because the vanity plate read “SALTAIR.”

Going green

An empty Broadway property, long home to service station, is going green.

The property, owned by Derry business owner Brad Benson, is now full of freshly rolled sod and grass.

After the building was razed, the site, next to the town’s pocket park, was given a facelift.
