Well, we are ending the year with a nice weight loss. Kudos to Laurel for being the best loser of the week! Keep up the good work. 


Not much was going on at TOPS this past week; a few weighed in and it was a nice meeting. Everyone was getting ready for Christmas day. 


Soon enough its going to be a new year and that’s when we all set our new year’s resolutions... A lot of people say they are going to lose weight. Well, if anyone made that resolution, they are welcome to come join us.


We are a good support weight loss program that has lots of encouragement and a way to meet new friends. If anyone is interested in joining us, we meet on Tuesday nights at the St. Stephen’s Church on Main Street in Pittsfield. Weigh in is at 5:30 and the meeting is at 6:30. Any questions call Laurel Tiede at 269-8721 or Pat Smith at 435-5333. 


“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)


Hope everyone has a happy and healthy New Year!



Merrimack County Budget Update And Other News

Submitted By Bronwyn Asplund-Walsh, Chair Merrimack County Commissioner


Well, another election is behind us and another County Budget has just been proposed to the new legislative delegation by the Merrimack County Commissioners. I am proud to announce to you that we, the Commissioners of Merrimack County, have passed on to your local State Representatives a proposed budget which is nearly flat funded (a 0.29% increase from last year’s budget which was flat funded). Your local State Representatives will now meet in various sub-committees to determine and pass the County Budget for this year. Already, your local representatives have been very busy attending County meetings. I look forward to meeting with them individually regarding issues concerning our nursing home, Department of Corrections, Sheriff’s Department, etc.


You must know how hard our department heads have worked to both improve their individual departments and maintain costs. Ron White, Administrator for the Department of Corrections, has begun a request for proposals for pharmaceutical services for the Department of Corrections, which should significantly cut costs for medications. Our Merrimack County Child Advocacy Center continues to improve and expand its programs while increasing its funding through donations. We recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding between the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension Service and Merrimack County which will continue our long-time unique partnership. This will set the stage for an even stronger association while enabling Cooperative Extension to become even more efficient. Our County Administrator, Kathleen Bateson, received the County Administrator of the Year award at the New Hampshire Association of Counties annual convention. Through her efforts, Moody’s investment service has awarded Merrimack County an Aa3 rating sighting our conservative budgetary management practices, our large and stable county tax base and manageable debt burden.


As Chair of the Merrimack County Commissioners, I attended a National Association of Counties Justice and Public Safety Symposium in Fulton County, Georgia. We discussed how to safely lower jail and juvenile detention populations, cost-effective pretrial justice programs, cybersecurity, and diverting the mentally ill from the criminal justice system with some of the nation’s foremost justice and public safety experts. We also considered how county officials can best shape federal policies and funding to ensure that services for residents in their communities are enhanced. Keynote speaker was former US Ambassador to the United Nations, Andrew Young. We also heard from Dr. James Austin, former director of the Institute on Crime, Justice and Corrections at George Washington University.


The National Association of Counties has for several years offered a free prescription drug discount card through the counties. Now, they also offer a dental discount program. For both of these discount programs, residents of Merrimack County can contact our office at (603) 796-6800 for their free discount cards.


Lastly, I am proud to announce that I have been elected as Vice President of the New Hampshire Association of Counties. County government was established in 1771. There are now 10 New Hampshire Counties. NHAC represents the interests of County Government in New Hampshire. Our affiliates include the Register of Deeds, County Attorneys, County Nursing Homes, County Corrections, County Human Services, and County Human Resources. Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions or issues concerning our County Government.
