Fairy Tale Festival 2013 - Oceans of Discovery



This years Nashua, NH SummerFun program is filled with 
Oceans of Discovery 



The Wave in 2013 - will bring you to Greeley Park on 7/20/13, and from 10 am to 1 pm - the Head Fairy's Realm will embark upon the adventure of discovering the secrets of the Ocean.


Isaac Newton once said: "To myself I am only a child playing on the beach, while vast oceans of truth lie undiscovered before me.

Together we will leave the beach and discover vast oceans, an enigma of calming and soothing waves, often brought in by overcoming harrowing and stormy weather, connecting us to the world around us by revealing unknown truths and triumphs  the journey begins with you & I & we ...


We will be arriving at the park at 9:45 am to be sure to get in on the excitement and catch a glimpse of  the Mermaid Giovanna, who will be leading us out to sea.  We will accept our Quest and find out all about the community that will be there to welcome us - "you and me and them will abound in oceans of discovery", it is more than probable that even our most cynical non-believer's will simply dive in to explore the possibilities.

There will be some places where we will be waiting they are usually the bouncy places or the face painting places, but we will have more than one of those places to avoid all that waiting, there will be characters to be met, princesses and those characters who know the oceans best. As we meet new friends and old, the waiting will simply drift by, as the waves gently bring us into a new panorama of opportunity and chance.  

"YOU" have the chance to show off your reading skills and as you compete in the Quest, everyone wins. And if your shy which of course we all can be from time to time, maybe just maybe you can bring yourself to get in on the action with Jr. Jazzercise and learn to swim like an exotic fish, shark or even a mer-person, (no gillyweed needed) something will be happening all around you. Of course the stage has excitement to make all the waiting simply fly by. 

"YOU," having the leading role as you always do that day, as a voyager  in an endless sea filled with over 40 places to investigate and explore and if your hot which surely July can be, you can glide through the mist and renew your thoughts to go further, to see how far your journey will take you. Even our most cynical non-believer, will be surprised at what can be found in one hundred and eighty minutes, and to think that you & I and we will see it all on Concord Street, Nashua, NH

Recognizing the "E" Generation - Happy Father's Day Dad!


Dana Clark Cutter on The Older “E” Generation’s View 12/31/11



Dana Clark Cutter, a retired high school teacher and current part-time substitute teacher in the elementary schools of Western Massachusetts, gave his discerning perspective on the accomplishments and ideals of the generation falling in the 70 year age range.

Mr. Cutter relayed to this reporter that he considers himself to be a member of the older American generation, a generation where everyone worked hard and cared about other people by setting up safety nets so children could function and be well. A generation that also contributed with dramatic breakthroughs in controlling childhood diseases such as polio, measles and chicken pox.

Mr. Cutter further described this generation as the “E” Eisenhower Generation, “We got things done ranging from road building, water works, and hospitals.  “That’s us,” he added spiritedly.

If there was something that other generation's should know or understand about the “E” generation, Mr. Cutter states that it is important that they identify with how previous generations laid down the foundation for a better country for their children to function in.

Mr. Cutter also mentioned that his skills and work related talents continue to be of value to children from grammar school through college age and that his communication skills are in tune to the interactions and reactions of this diverse audience in motivating and preparing them for the future.

Challenges at work that may have something to do with his generation, are simply the art of human compassion and understanding.  The importance of giving a young individual a sense of value is something Mr. Cutter learned at a very young age.  He acknowledged individual value as one that you cannot over read in children in destructive families; you have to take them forward, and to do that you must create a passion for existence, while not placing an emphasis on their environment.

The most influential historic events and people that define generation “E”, as reflected upon by Mr. Cutter, he estimated, were contributions made by Elvis Presley, President Dwight Eisenhower, Senator Paul H. Douglas, President Richard Nixon, and the 1st Peace Corps Director Sargent Shriver.  Further, he elaborated that the most influential group of people and events were members of the Kennedy administration, Herbert Hoover’s Food for Peace Program, Barbara Streisand and Ronald Reagan.  Mr. Cutter emphasized that these events and people compared with the present generations cultural historic icons had a much broader view of humanity and enhanced interactive human relations.

Mr. Cutter’s views were molded as he grew up in the Christian Socialist Community of Hopedale Massachusetts created by Aiden Ballou the site describes it as Mr. Cutter relayed  “a model of a peaceful, caring community … an alternative to today's violence and greed.” Mr. Cutter described his youth in this town as one filled with hope for a ward of the state, a ward who would go on to become president of his high school class and become a business teacher who would influence generations of students based on the principals of a town that “believed in equality of the sexes, equal voice and votes for women and universal education for children as far back as the 1850’s.”  

The site holds many memoirs: "One member of the old community, Harriet N. Greene, declared that the people of the village were indeed a rather peculiar people, peculiar in that they disavowed violence in any form and opened their doors to the fugitive slave; peculiar too in that there was no poverty, unemployment, drunkenness, or wasted lives in their midst." Edward Spann, stated in "Hopedale: from Commune to Company Town". “This was a town that took the stance of radical Abolitionists”, and celebrated emancipation annually in August. Hopedale was also the site of annual anti-slavery meetings that attracted as many as a thousand participants and featured prominent speakers such as Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, Wendell Phillips, Abby Kelly Foster, Charles Burleigh, Henry "Box" Brown, William and Ellen Crafts and William Lloyd Garrison.”

In this town of rich history, Mr. Cutter was welcomed in as a ward of the State in or about 1942. He ruminated that the factories of the town placed more value on every worker than the product produced and in fact provided homes for its workers at moderate rates and created smaller homes for widows, “the seven sisters”.  In addition, the Hopedale Foundation gave every student the opportunity to pursue an extended education after high school.  Peculiar or not this town had a full day of kindergarten starting in the year 1942, a feat which was not made mandatory in New Hampshire until 2009 and only at a half of day.  Moreover, Mr. Cutter described how the Draper Corporation provided a truck so that the high school seniors could collect newspapers on Saturdays to raise money for their annual Washington trip, and that there was no segregation in the Hopedale schools.

Mr. Cutter believes his generation is remembered for saving the environment, creating energy options and layering foundations for human advancement intertwined with its care in keeping jobs and health care rights for workers.  The effects of Woodrow Wilson are recalled as perhaps one of the worst presidents, one who had his political opponent jailed for treason.  This recollection is soothed only by the pardon provided by President Harry Truman.

As I recap my interview with Dana Clark Cutter in remembrance of his generation “E”, I must say it is a story I heard often growing up with my father, and one that has taught me that this generation valued the human position and believed in family as shown by his marriage to my mother for 48 years, his patriotism to America by serving in the armed forces and support of my brothers’ enlistments and his commitment to education and his community as revealed in recent recognition from the Chicopee Public School System, at Chicopee Comprehensive High School where a plaque at the school store recognizes his personal contributions to the students, school system and community.
 
In conclusion,  Mr. Cutter, like many of his generation, worked tirelessly to personally create a storybook childhood for his children to fall back on when confronting the iniquitous ways of American life today, and taught many to stand up for those who could not stand up for themselves.  Mr. Cutter’s commitment to those around him is further demonstrated by the fact that he welcomed 10 foster children into his home at various times as a commitment to the foster parents who brought him up, Victoria and Charles Hoglund, for whom he credits much of his success in life.  Among all these lessons in life, I will remember how Mr. Cutter always took the time to help, contribute to the lives around him, and his steadfast belief that “everyone” is of equal value there are no wasted lives, as a measure to carry on in my generation and pass along to my son. It is a wonderful life that you continue to lead, Mr. Cutter.

Happy Father's Day Dad and many more.

Accountability Guns Responsibility ... Who's?

NH and other states are failing the Public and our Children …why because across the country there is not tight control surrounding Gun Owners Accountability and Responsibility. 

When it comes to gun control, the statistics show that every day, over 30 Americans are murdered with guns as shown by stats with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention 

In 2011, NH completed 90, 984 background checks for gun permits; among prohibited purchasers would be those who have mental health issues.  In NH they were obviously over looked, the total amount of mental health records recorded during the same time frame shows a fatal gap only two (2). 

The Judicial System in NH is dangerous to the public it serves when  people such as Nationally Recognized Mental Health Professional Romulo Valdez can obtain a get out of jail free card for their mentally ill children, Valdez works with a large portion of the public including the VA, his adult daughter Adrienne Valdez attacked two police officers, her mother, her brother with a knife and brutally attacked two EMT’s over the course of a couple of months; her Attorney pled meds caused her actions. So we have to included those medications that cause this behavior on the application for gun permits and deny them. 

Otherwise, people like A. Valdez can get a gun because people like her father R. Valdez and former Hillsborough County Attorney Robert Walsh  feel that people with mental illness or perhaps father's who completed psych assessments the way a state prosecutor wants them to go, can simply have a get out of jail free card.  

Ms. Valdez had at least two felony's charges against her and was let off due to her father's position, felony’s dropped to a misdemeanor, then transferred to the Mental Health Court and this past December 2012 while attending School for Law in Mass., Ms. Valdez walked out of mental health court with no clear evidence that she is a safe person and not a threat to the public she will interact with, does this women's mental health report exist with records that would go against her obtaining a Gun Permit? No. 

We need to be concerned about people like the above who call themselves professionals, because the statistics show that NH failed to block gun sales to prohibited purchasers whose mental health records are not in the system, because the total amount of mental health records recorded during the same time period was two (2).

We need tougher guns laws, it’s not like we will ever ban them entirely, no abridgment to the 2nd Amendment which was made when there were no automatic weapons, there are over 270,000,000 in civilian hands now; that is not counting what is in our military’s and law enforcement's hands. 

If you want to own a gun you need to be responsible and accountable, whether you fire it or someone uses your gun - you are responsible for not taking measures to make sure it is locked up. 

Have American's truly lost sight of the value of life? How many more children have to die before you realize tighter measures on gun applications are needed.
