Zombie Walk Lurches into Dover DOVER The Dover Zombie Walk celebrates 11 years of shambling through the streets of the Garrison City! Started in 2006, long before "The Walking Dead" was a TV hit and America had a case of (non-contagious, non-terrifying) zombie fever, The Dover Zombie Walk has been leading a family-friendly parade of ghouls and revenants through downtown Dover each Halloween season. The walk returns this year on Saturday, Oct. 29 at 2 p.m. As always, zombies of all ages will gather at the Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce, 550 Central Ave. The undead horde will march through downtown Dover (while obeying all traffic rules, of course), and end at Adelle's Coffeehouse, at 3 Hale St., where they'll feast on

Gallery Benefit for “Chris’ Pets for Vets� HAMPTON FALLS Color Notes Art Gallery is sponsoring an art show to benefit “Chris’ Pets for Vets.� Three local artists, Danielle Annis, Carol Adams and Barbara Busenbark will be donating 30 percent of the proceeds from art purchases during this special month long event. “Chris’ Pets for Vets� is one of the programs of “Annie’s Angels� and provides shelter

animals to veterans struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. This fund was created in honor of Christopher Journeau for PTSD awareness. Chris served with the US Army, 1st Battalion, 21st Infantry, 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team while fighting in Operation Iraqi Freedom. At the age of 23 See VETS page 2...

by Barbara Tosiano, Director of the Hampton Falls Library, who leads the discussion and prepares a food representative of the time. Reading the book is not a requirement for what should prove to be an interesting discussion. Many famous people attended the Chicago World’s Fair to marvel at innovations such as the first Ferris Wheel, an all-electric kitchen including a dishwasher and the widespread use of incandescent light bulbs. Among them were Buffalo Bill Cody, Annie Oakley, Teddy Roosevelt, Frank Lloyd

Wright, Helen Keller, Woodrow Wilson and Susan B. Anthony. Daniel H. Burnham, architect of the fair, referring to it said: “Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men’s blood.� But with all the magic there was also murder, committed by Henry Howard Holmes, a serial killer from New Hampshire who used the fair to lure his victims to their death. Holmes would be caught, charged and defended by Clarence Darrow. It would be the only case in Darrow’s career to end in the client’s execution.

Police Departments Take Back Unwanted Prescription Drugs

SOMERSWORTH ONE Voice for Strafford County is proud to announce that on Saturday, October 22, seven Strafford County law enforcement agencies and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public another opportunity to prevent prescription medication abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to any of the agency locations listed between the hours of 10 am to 2 pm. The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. Last April, Americans turned in over 893,000 pounds of prescription drugs at almost 5,400 sites operated by the DEA and more than 4,200 of its state and local law enforcement partners. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that hang around in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.

Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards. Visit one of the following police departments on Saturday, October 22 to dispose of your unused medications: Dover Police Department: 46 Chestnut Street, Dover; Farmington Police Department: 531 Main Street, Farmington; Lee Police Department: 20 George Bennett Road, Lee; Milton Police Department: 7 Townhouse Road, Milton; Rochester Police Department: 23 Wakefield Street, Rochester; Rollinsford Police Department: 667 Main Street, Rollinsford ;UNH Police Department: UNH Police Department, 18 Waterworks Road, Durham & UNH Health Services Pharmacy, 4 Pettee Brook Lane, Durham. For more information about the disposal of prescription drugs or about the October 22 Take Back Day event, contact your local police department or ONE Voice for Straf-

Festival. It began in 2008. Lin-Manuel Miranda was on vacation in Mexico, reading Ron Chernow’s biography of Alexander Hamilton – all 832 pages of it. When he returned to New York, he invited Chernow to see “In the Heights�, his first Broadway show and winner of the 2008 Tony Award for Best Musical. During a backstage visit afterwards, Miranda told the author that as he was reading his book, hip-hop songs started rising off the pages. “I knew it was my next show,� he says. Hamilton’s America shows just how timeless the hotbutton issues of today’s America are: immigration, States’ rights, debt, income inequality, and race relations. These were the same fights that defined Hamilton’s time, and they are the driving force of Miranda’s historic work. The story of Alexander Hamilton is most remembered for its dramatic conclusion, which saw Hamilton killed in a duel by Vice President Aaron Burr. But the full story of this

~ Arts & Enterainment ~ KITTERY Peggo and former New Hampshire Congressman Paul Hodes make their Kittery Dance Hall musical debut on Sunday, October 23 at the Kittery Dance Hall, Kittery, with their long-time collaborator, multi-talented Kent Allyn. Peggo and Paul met to play music when Peggo advertised in the Boston Phoenix for a husband under the guise of looking for a guitar player to round out her folk duo. Two kids, seven albums and thirty-seven years later, they’re still making music together. He plays by ear. She is a classically trained vocalist. Happily, the talented multiinstrumentalist Kent Allyn, their long-time collaborator, helps them bridge both musical worlds and make it through rehearsals unscathed. In the early days, Peggo and Paul toured and played music for kids and families, winning two Parent’s

Choice awards for their innovative kid friendly rock and roll. With Kent, they’ve played fairs, festivals, concerts, coffee-houses, band shells and the White House. These days, Following Paul’s stint as a US Congressman, they weave together elements of pop, jazz, traditional folk, singer-songwriter, and

originals that feature Peggo’s wide-ranging vocal abilities, Paul’s bluesy bent, Kent’s rhythmic and harmonic flavors and a whole lot of humor. This is their first hometown Kittery Dance Hall appearance and they are delighted at the short commute from their shack in Kittery Point.

Hoping you can help, Robert Dear Robert, It is possible to save online videos to your computer, but it is not always legal. Before you start downloading your videos and tutorials, you need to make sure you are able to do so. Once you have checked out the legalities, you next need to find a software program to help you with your task.

Shirley Dear Shirley, If you are using this computer to go online, I would suggest that you get a Linux CD and use that as your operating system. If you are using the computer for programs that don't need online access, just don't connect to the internet and you should be fine. Here are the steps that I set up for my customers who want to continue using their older computer. 1. Download Puppy Linux at: There are directions on the website for how to download. 2. You will download an iso file. Use your CD burning program to create a Puppy Linux disk. 3. With the disk in your CD drive, shut down the computer, then start it up and press the key your computer uses to display a boot menu. (you might have to look this up on your laptop manufacturers website) You can try either F12 or the Esc key as those are the most common. 4. Once in the boot menu, choose to boot to the CD and you will find yourself looking at the puppy linux desktop instead of the Windows desktop. I usually download and create a disk for my customers, give them a short lesson on booting

to the disk and they happily use Linux as their online operating system. Elizabeth

trying to give them a taste at an early age, of history and preservation and learning from primary sources.” The program got its start in 2006 when historian and curator Sandra Rux began offering in-class talks at Dondero School.

Tuesday, October 25 Watoto Children's Choir travels from Africa Held at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, 5 Hale Street, Dover. The Watoto Children's Choir will present a their new choir production entitled "Oh What Love," Their

ers. They heard tales of famous figures from John Paul Jones and Celia Thaxter to Prince Whipple and Polly Warner. “At the end of each year, kids toured several historic houses, all of which they had seen and talked about beforehand," Rux says. Classes have visited the Moffatt-Ladd House, Warner House, the Portsmouth Athenaeum, the African Burying Ground and more. Spollen is supremely qualified to be the latest History Lady. Originally from Larchmont, NY, Spollen has an M.A. in Museum Studies from the Harvard Extension School and an M.A. in Elementary Education from Lesley College. Before moving to Portsmouth she worked for many years at Boston Children’s Museum and at the Educational Development Center (EDC), an educational outreach nonprofit funded by the National Science Foundation. She is the mother of three children, aged four, two, and five months. One of her favorite history objects, a chunk of dried cod,

has been living in her freezer for years. She takes it out annually to spark discussion about the region’s founding fishermen and Portsmouth life in the 1600s. “Object-based teaching is an exciting tactile way for students to begin learning about Portsmouth history and build a love of community,” Spollen says. “How can an old piece of fish not get stinky? How far away is England? Why would dried cod be so important to the first settlers? We explore these ideas together. The kids make the connections. I'm just their guide. That’s how we all learn about this amazing city.” According to Director of Programming Allison Galliher, "This program helps students build their observation and questioning skills. They have extended classroom discussions and participate in small group presentations. We want to bring a museum experience right to the classroom. Our third grade Portsmouth history program is a perfect lead in to what will come in the fourth grade when they tackle New Hampshire." For more information, please visit

Drake Farm in North Hampton named to National Register of Historic Places NORTH HAMPTON The New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources is proud to announce that the Drake Farm in North Hampton has been honored by the United States Secretary of the Interior with placement on the National Register of Historic Places. The Drake Farm is a relatively late example of connected farmhouses that were popular in New Hampshire in the 19th century. Today, few examples survive in such an unaltered condition. A homestead and detached barn were originally on the site, but that house was torn down in 1890 and the connected complex took on its current appearance, with a two and a half story main house, two story kitchen wing, smaller barn and large offset barn. While the main house provided formal living spaces for generations of Drakes, the kitchen wing’s smaller upstairs bedrooms may have been used

by farm laborers, servants or boarders. Areas of the smaller barn, commonly called a “back house,” were likely used as a carriage shed, milk room, woodshed, summer kitchen or general kitchen storage area. Throughout its history, the large barn housed cows, horses, lambs and pigs. Its walls still have the names of workers written on them as well as dated details of farm operations including plowing, potato planting, manure hauling and egg counts. A two-hole outhouse is still in place next to the grain bin. A plaque on the property commemorates the life of Col. Abraham Drake, who served in both the French and Indian Wars and the Revolutionary War and who witnessed the surrender of Gen. Burgoyne at Saratoga. Joshua F. Drake was the last family member to use the property as a farm. He continued to keep cows into the 1970s

Center Looks to Help More Families Across Southern NH DOVER Having recently relocated to their new space in Dover, the New Hampshire Parenting Support Center (NHPSC) has expanded its capacity to assist families experiencing a divorce. Specializing in cases that require court intervention, NHPSC offers supervised visitation for children and parents in a more comfortable and home-like environment as a result of its move. “Our new facility helps to enhance the therapeutic aspect of our services,” said NHPSC Co-Founder Nancy Blais, who

cited strong ties to the court and mental health system. “We are a known entity among many judges, so our goal now is to work more closely with mental health centers and hospitals who may be able to refer our services to families in need.” Certified as a Guardian ad Litem since 2005, Blais has a Masters of Education in Guidance and Counseling and has served in divorce and guardian cases and abuse/neglect and termination of parental rights cases in Strafford and Rockingham County. She is joined by Co-Founder Chris Burns, prin-

cipal attorney of Burns Legal Services. Burns experience includes both civil and criminal cases in a variety of courts, including the New Hampshire Supreme Court. “We will even go into the home and meet with parents and children on ‘their turf’ if they can’t or don’t want to come to the Center,” Burns added. “We are committed to reunifying families and serving as a resource for southern New Hampshire and Maine.” To learn more about NHPSC, visit www.nhpsc. com.

DARCI Creative Celebrates 10 Years

Ken graduated from New Hampshire Technical Institute in Concord in 2005. He currently lives in Rochester.
