Local law officials in area communities are warning people to pay heed when it comes to winter weather and snowfall totals. Area police departments have listed daily activity logs with a long list of snow/parking violations listed the day before the most recent storm. Residents are urged to follow the rules in their respective towns about where and when vehicles can be parked during this stormy season.
Ice, ice, baby
That was the word during some recent days with frigid temperatures, bringing out winter-lovers and those who love an icy pond for some afternoon fun. Recently, the ice-fishing bob houses dotted the frozen Beaver Lake in Derry while families also took to the safe and solid shore areas for ice skating.
Social media support
It's well known that a simple post on social media these days can spark support, help finding a lost pet or just some advice about ways to improve your home. But when a few local horses decided to take a stroll away from their Derry home, Facebook posts jumped into action to help the owner retrieve the animals safely. Horse sightings came fast and furious and the animals were found and are now safe.
Londonderry town councilors paid tribute to a longtime town employee who died recently, saying he served the town well.
Prior to every meeting, town councilors spend a silent moment remembering first responders and all who serve their country. Before the meeting on Feb. 1, councilors paid a special silent tribute to Rick Brideau, a 20-plus year town official in the Assessing Department, Londonderry Lions Club member, and also a member of the town's Planning Board and CIP committee. As an added tribute, a New York Yankees cap was put on special display.
"His beloved Yankees were always with him," Council Chairman John Farrell said.
