Letter To The Editor


I am writing this letter to recognize our amazing librarian and her excellent library team at the Chichester Town Library.


Lisa and her colleagues create a warm and welcoming library environment and consistently go above and beyond in their efforts to meet the needs of library visitors. Most recently, my dad has been hospitalized for an extended period and is so ill, he can do nothing but lie down and rest. My mother and I stopped in at the library to see if there might be a movie he could watch and enjoy. After finding out my dad was an avid watcher of MASH and Hogan’s Heroes each night, Lisa tracked down TV episodes through inter-library loan services and even purchased some MASH for him to enjoy! We even left with some comedy films she helped us choose to lighten our own moods.


Lisa let us know right away when the films arrived and we were able to bring a little bit of the comfort of home into the hospital for Dad. Not being able to eat, drink, or leave his bed, this is truly something that brings a little smile to his face and a bit of joy back to his life.


My family and I are so grateful for the staff at our local library and want them to know just how blessed we feel to have such a wonderful place to visit full of caring and helpful ladies! 


With sincere gratitude,

Karen McCormack



Letter To The Editor


First and foremost, I want to thank Mike, for standing HIS ground, for doing what’s best for the town, knowing he WAS the only selectman making a stand for what’s right. Anyone can talk the talk, he’s proven that he’ll walk the walk.


Second, I want to thank Jeff, he made a motion last night, (9-22-15) that passed the board of selectmen, I didn’t like the proposal, but it was the best solution at the time. More importantly, it’s moving in the right direction.


Last is Richard, it appeared to the 20 people or so that went to the meeting, one of his concerns was the gentleman’s agreement that was made two weeks ago. Richard didn’t want to look bad in front of property owner(s), ok to take 60% off the tax bill, wipe the slate clean, and start over. But, not to worry about doing right with the town’s best interest.


Not one person at the meeting last night agreed or supported Richard. Richard did not vote for Jeff’s motion. But Richard made his own motion to accept a figure about 40 percent of what is owed, to include taxes from 2009 to 2014. Thankfully, neither Mike nor Jeff agreed, so it went nowhere.


One of the last questions to Richard was, if payment hasn’t been made, would you vote in favor to take the land, (the attorney’s recommendation numerous times) and Richard stated, if he was a gambling man, he would bet on no.


I will publicly apologize to Jeff, for doubting his intentions.


Richard, everyone at the meeting will always wonder what your intensions really are. We all know, in this case, it wasn’t the town, nor the people in town. We all spoke to you, you refused to listen. Shame on you !

Richard “Dick” Greene


A Celebration of the life of Richard “Dick” Greene was held on Sunday, September 27th at Wesley United Methodist Church, 79 Clinton Street, Concord, NH. Dickie was adamant that no one should mourn his death — He’s in a better place — He always said throw a big party. We certainly know he is dancing with the angels and partying with the many loved ones that have gone on to heaven before him. Thank you to the many friends and family members who gathered to celebrate his memory and share stories, hugs, and food. 


Richard, a current resident of Chichester, NH, was born on May 29th, 1946 in Portland, Maine and made his home in Manchester, NH with his parents Sherman Greene and Gertrude (Ricard) Greene. A long time member of the Methodist Church, he served as a Sunday school teacher and a youth group advisor. He was often found out in his garage tinkering with small engines, obsessively mowing the lawn, or fixing a friends car. Always ready to help a stranger who broke down on the side of the road or offer a meal and a couch to sleep on for a friend down on his luck, Richard lived to serve others. He loved rock and roll, motorcycles, his many dogs, cats, and even ducks, and especially his family and friends.


Dickie was preceded in death by Sherman and Gertrude Greene, and is survived by his beloved wife of 44 years, Sylvia (Glidden) Greene, his daughters Dawn Mitchell and Karen McCormack, his son Eric Greene, his son-in-law Jody McCormack, his grandchildren Iain, Owen, Lily, and Samantha, and one great grandchild Amillya; his sister, Judi (Greene) Lanza, his sister-in-law Joan Doucette, and his dear nieces and nephews Adam, Renee, Joseph, Jennifer, and Jeffrey.
