Letter To The Editor
believe a Community is people helping people, people volunteering at
the community center working with our senior citizens, maybe
stopping by the PD and setting up a neighborhood watch. I believe a
community helps their neighbor unload their trash at the dump
instead of sitting the car waiting for the line to move. I think a
community sees trash on the street and stops and picks it up, maybe
volunteer to help the Beautification committee or help the 4H or
PYW. I think we have lost sight of what makes a good community. I
don’t think “self promotion” is in the definition of the word
community. Goodbye, Pittsfield “Community” Page.
saddens me to see a town that already receives so much negativity
start to bring more of it upon ourselves. As a community we seem to
bash the police department, the fire department, the highway
department, the select board, our neighbors, and people we don’t
even know, just to be heard. My dad told me when I was growing up,
“Don’t be one of those people who talk just to be heard.” I try not
to talk too much because I usually say the wrong thing, but I like
this town and I wish we would start acting like a true community.
Let’s help our neighbors, let’s listen before we speak, let’s make
it about somebody else, not “ ME.” A community is not about one
person’s interests or goals it’s about what’s best for everyone.
Mark 12: 30-31
the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and
with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is
this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’There is no commandment
greater than these.
Board meeting 9/26/17- We were visited by Executive Councilor Chris
Pappas of our District 4 who heard our concerns relative to staying
on the 2018 list for paving state roads through town. Also, hope was
expressed to him that we might get relief of some kind regarding the
impending state mandated repairs to the Clark’s Pond dam. Carole
also mentioned the fact that three State DOT Districts converge in
Pittsfield and that we have difficulty finding anyone of them to
take responsibility for what we perceive as a mish-mash of road
maintenance. He was attentive and we appreciated him coming.
long time fuel oil provider, Dead River, was once again contracted
for heating oil, being the lowest of the three who responded to bid
signed a contract with our fire chief, Pete Pszonowsky, for a three
year term. Whereas he is one of a handful of town employees not
part of a union, the BOS negotiates directly with him. His previous
contract had yearly pay increases built in, with the last one being
this year. This new board honored the increase when the Chief
agreed to work 150 hours filling in for EMT overtime needs as they
arose, in addition to regular duties, each calendar year, thereby
saving us approximately $5,000 per year. His contract is for level
salary at his present pay for 3 years. We are glad to have him.
public input several residents expressed concern over news reports
regarding a Pittsfield Police officer for an incident in Epping and
wanted a public statement from the PD relative to the general
subject, which has been forthcoming. All town officials are
prohibited from discussing particulars of ongoing investigations,
even in other towns.
reminder, audio tapes are available at the Town Hall for anyone who
wants to listen to BOS meeting’s content and actual comments and
tone by the Board and by the public.

More Winners Announced For 2017 Globe Gear Giveaway
of 10 fire departments in the U.S. do not have enough personal
protective clothing for all of their emergency responders, and
almost three-quarters of departments report that some of their
personal protective clothing is at least 10 years old, according to
the National Fire Protection Association. To better protect our
nation’s responders, Globe, DuPont Protection Solutions (DuPont),
and the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) are providing four
new sets of state-of-the-art turnout gear to 13 volunteer fire
departments in need through the 2017 Globe Gear Giveaway program.
The Lowell (VT) Volunteer Fire Department and the Latir Volunteer
Fire Department (Questa, NM) are the program’s latest recipients.
Lowell Volunteer Fire Department is located in northern Vermont near
the Canadian border and serves 600 residents over 65 square miles.
In addition to regular emergency response activities, the department
is also tasked with high-angle rescue services for the 25 wind
turbines in town. While all 20 volunteers currently have turnout
gear, all sets are over 10 years old and not compliant with
recommended safety standards. The department hopes to eventually
purchase new gear for all of their members to provide the safety and
protection their responders so desperately need. As Assistant Chief
Gerry Nick notes, “Four sets [is] a huge start for our replacement
Latir Volunteer Fire Department serves a community of 2,000
individuals in northern New Mexico. The department provides
protection from wildfires, structural fires, and lightning strikes,
as well as conducts safety education in the community. Due to budget
cuts, they are struggling to maintain basic equipment and supplies
that are vital to sustaining a full-service department. Only 12 of
the 19 firefighters on their roster have turnout gear, and all 12
sets of gear are over 10 years old. The donation of four sets of
Globe gear will greatly help the department in their efforts to
replace torn gear worn by their seasoned volunteers and equip new
recruits so they are protected and able to respond.
Additional awards through the Globe Gear Giveaway will be made
monthly throughout 2017. A total of 52 sets of gear will be
distributed to 13 departments in need. Stay tuned to the NVFC web
site, Dispatch newsletter, and Facebook page, as well as the Globe
Facebook page, for additional information and announcements
regarding the Globe Gear Giveaway.
The Boar, Goes On The Offensive
Submitted By Carole Soule
hovered over Charlotte, my 800-pound “pet” sow, Bucky lunged. I felt
his hot breath as he snapped at me with his tusks stopping short
inches from my hand. Bucky, a normally well-mannered boar was being
protective of Charlotte who I was injecting twice a day with
medicine to help her recover from an illness.
injected her, Charlotte would squeal and grunt her displeasure but
ultimately put up with the twice-daily shots. Not so Bucky. This is
the same Bucky who tried to rescue one of his offspring a few weeks
ago. Then he was a concerned Dad; today he was a concerned husband
to Charlotte. He saw and sensed that she didn’t like the injections
so he decided to take action. He would not back off and hung around
Charlotte ready to protect her from the “attack of the needle.”
many of us, Bucky was acting on partial information. He only
understood Charlotte and I had no way to explain to him this
medication was required to save her life. To Bucky, Charlotte
complained about the injections, so it was his responsibility to
protect her. Fortunately, the day he attacked was the last day of
her treatment. Now that I’m not sticking Charlotte with a needle
anymore, Bucky has returned to his calm, non-aggressive self.
Aggressive males critters (not the two-legged variety) in the
barnyard are common. When she was a young girl, Barbara from Concord
told me how she would use a broom to sweep her way into the hen
house to collect eggs so that when the rooster attacked she could
brush him away. Every farmer has a story about a protective barnyard
males. Do you have a story to share? Let me know your experience and
if you were quite as scared as I was when Bucky, Charlotte’s
boar-friend, got all protective. The most docile can react when they
don’t understand your intention but I guess that’s true for all of
us, not just the barnyard variety.

raises and sells beef, pork, lamb, eggs and other local products.

Happening At PYW?
Morse, trustee of The Foss Family Foundation, presents a donation to
Paula Martel, Program Director of The Pittsfield Youth Workshop, to
support the newly created PYW Pantry.
Pittsfield Youth Workshop (PYW) wants to thank The Foss Family
Foundation for the very generous donation to support the newly
created PYW Pantry. This gift will have a profound effect on many of
the youth in Pittsfield. These funds will go towards helping us on
our mission, not only to empower youth but to make sure they have
the needed food and toiletries they might not otherwise have access
first purchase we plan to make with this donation is going to be a
new upright freezer! This will really help us in providing more than
just shelf-stable items. We will be able to get bulk amounts of
frozen food, so PYW will be able to continue providing and cooking
more healthy meals after school. The youth will also be able to have
more choices to take home!
heard of and was asked by another organization if we wanted to
collaborate in getting involved with Ending 68 Hours of Hunger. The
mission of End 68 Hours of Hunger is to confront the nearly 68 hours
of hunger experienced by some local children between the free lunch
they receive on Friday, and the free breakfast they receive on
some thought and discussion PYW’s plan was to reach as many children
that might need help with food or toiletries as possible and let
them “shop” for what they needed. PYW started the PYW Pantry, it was
not full but it was a good start. After a conversation with the
Barnstead Helpers suggesting that we should see, as a non-profit, if
we were able to get help from the NH Food Bank. We filled out the
required paper work, had our site evaluated, and went to the
required classes. We are pleased to announce we have become members
of the NH Food Bank!
that the PYW Panty was helping many of the youth in town but was
still not going to reach everyone that needed it. It wasn’t long
before we teamed-up with the National Honor Society Students at
Pittsfield Middle High School to get a panty started there also. We
are still working on getting one going at the Pittsfield Elementary
School, which will work and look a little different. Staff will
identify youth in need, and put together a take-home-bag.
this time the Pittsfield Food Pantry would donate any extra items
they had, and it wasn’t long before St. Stephens Episcopal Church,
“A Little Church with the Big Heart” heard of our mission and wanted
to help. And boy have they helped out, almost every week they drop
by PYW with donations to add to the panty, cash donations to help
with expenses, and so much more.
a great project that we at PYW, and all others that are working in
collaboration with us, know will grow and strengthen for many, many
years to come. We want to thank everyone that has been involved in
helping to get this project off the ground. It would not have been
possible without the support from everyone involved. Thank You!
