Atkinson officials order couple to vacate home
Atkinson officials say there's no occupancy permit

By Eric Parry

ATKINSON — Police delivered a letter from the selectmen to Daniel and Margaret Osborn on Monday night, ordering them to vacate their 8 Valcat Lane home.

All three selectmen signed the letter, which directs the Osborns to leave their house within five days because they do not have a certificate of occupancy.

But Margaret Osborn said yesterday they only received the letter because they are being harassed by town officials. She said they are in full compliance with all building and fire codes.

"We don't even know why we don't have an occupancy permit," Osborn said.

Town Administrator Philip Smith and the three selectmen have been told by their attorney, Sumner Kalman, not to comment on the letter. Kalman did not return a phone call for comment yesterday afternoon.

Osborn wouldn't say whether she is living at the home, nor if they are, whether they plan to leave as instructed.

"I can't let people know our whereabouts," she said.

The letter is the latest in a complicated controversy between the Osborns and town officials.

In October, the selectmen sent the Osborns a cease-and-desist order because they were building a driveway without a permit. Also, the state has been investigating alleged shoreland protection violations at the property. No information related to that investigation was available yesterday.

The letter delivered from the town Monday does not indicate whether the Osborns would be subject to any penalty if they do not obey the directive.

But according to the town's zoning ordinance, any violation of building codes is punishable by a fine of $100 for each day after written notice is given to the offender.

The letter from the town cites an affidavit signed by Daniel Osborn that states he has been living at 8 Valcat Lane for a month.

The document is part of Osborn's file at Plaistow District Court. Daniel Osborn was arrested on a misdemeanor criminal threatening charge for allegedly swinging an umbrella at Leon Artus' car on Oct. 13, according to court documents. Artus also was arrested on the same date on a misdemeanor reckless conduct charge involving a motor vehicle.

Two weeks before the arrests were made, Artus complained to the selectmen that the Osborns had destroyed Valcat Lane when they built a driveway to their home.

Margaret Osborn claims her home has been vandalized and she has been harassed by residents.

Osborn listed Valcat Lane as his current address on a pretrial release questionnaire. According to the document, he said he had lived there for a month. The questionnaire is not dated.

The questionnaire also lists Osborn's employer, his previous criminal history and previous address. The telephone number listed on the document is out of service.

As part of Daniel Osborn's bail conditions, he's not allowed to be within 100 yards of Artus.

But Margaret Osborn said yesterday she denies any information on the document apparently signed by her husband.

She said they have used 8 Valcat Lane as their address since they moved from their previous home in Atkinson two years ago.

She denied that her husband filled out the document, even though it carries the signature of the defendant. The signature is not legible, but Daniel Osborn is the defendant in the case.

"We're being singled out and harassed, and will now have to deal with our legal counsel on what we should do," she said.

Well Mags, if he lied on that form to the Court that is perjury. If he did sign it then you are lying in this article.

Maybe if you quit whining about everybody else, and just followed the building permit you agreed to, none of this would have happened.

Fact remains. You are ordered to vacate your illegal occupancy by this Friday at 4:pm. You are so ordered.

This isn't the selectmen harrasing you, Maggie, this is the selectmen doing their job. If they let you live in the house without an OC, then nobody has to get an OC.

It would seem RIGHT and FITTING if Maggie and Daniel would retain their high fluting attorney and sue the Planning Board, ZBA, Building Inspector, Selectmen, DES and anyone else they can point to for violating their rights to build a house in Atkinson. All she has to do is prove her allegations in court, and they will own this town all to themselves. Tax rate will go up another ten dollars a thousand. That will show them.

I’m sure she has all the documents to prove how they are the victims and will win hands down.

Please Mr. & Mrs. Osborn have your attorney file all the necessary documents with the court and publish them here on the blog for everyone to see. It's about time good upstanding citizens like yourselves, takes this good for nothing, LAZY, corrupt BOS to court and beats their pants off. Your testimony alone, will win your case for you. Make them regret taking on an Osborn and show them who is boss. We can hardly wait for the announcement of your win. The monetary settlement will more than pay off your investment with enough left over to build three more houses on the lake. It will insure your retirement and college educations for your kids. Go get them, we are behind you.

Only other suggestion to save money is to move out of 8 Valcat now to save the fine money. It will show the court just how law abiding you are and add to the settlement money. You are in the right Maggie, so go prove everybody else is wrong. Jack Sapia and the rest of us are with you.


PS It would help if you could get one of your trusted buddy’s to steal Daniel’s signed statement out of the Plaistow District Court records. It’s a minor point but a pesky little fact that would be good to make go away. Everybody knows how corrupt the Plaistow District Court is, so might want to sue them too. You are being victimized by the judge and you need to put a stop to it. GO GET EM GAL!!!!

I for one would like Maggie or Daniel post here under their own names and present their position on all issues against them. I believe the Blog should give them that oppertunity to defend themselves.

How about it Daniel and Maggie, please post and tell us what your position is on the issues. Everybody knows you read and post to this blog as anonymous, so why not post under your own name. We would love to give you a chance.

Jeez...what a high and mighty blowhard you are. How sad for you to use biblical quotes, references, and religion in such a nasty, arrogant, and mean-spirited post. Have YOU been personally wronged by the Osborns? If so, have you forgotten about forgiveness and turning the other cheek?

Instead of being giddy like a schoolgirl about this unfortunate situation, you should do something truly Christian and invite the Osborns into your home, seeing as the BOS has ordered them to vacate a week before Christmas.

As has been said here before Ad Hominem personal attacks will not be tolerated. That is why that post was removed.

As to the succeeding comment, This blog does not prevent any from posting here. Mr. and Mrs. Osborn are perfectly welcome to air their side of the story here for all to comment upon and debate freely.

Merry Christmas to all...

The BOS are so tough with these poeple but they let our chief wacko go out of control.

Glad they gots their priorities straight.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT. Nice job kicking em out just before Christmas. If our BOS had real guts they'd have delivered the order on Dec 24. THEN I'd be impressed.

Anyone guessing how much the Osborn's will sue the town for? My guess is an extra few million because there getting evicted over the holidays. I'm betting the suit starts at $5 Million. Any takers? Once again the taxpayers lose. But we kicked 'me out on the street and showed them! So there! You idiots. The BOS is forcing them to sue the town. Idiots. You can't fix stupid.

Thank you Judge Judy. Yer just the judge, jury and executioner ain't ya?

THAT'S NOT THE POINT DUMBO. You just don't get it. Must EVERYTHING in this town end up in court? Does anyone care what it costs us?

Somebody building a house ends up in this situation? I have a hard time believing all the blog spin the Osborns are on some malicious mission to break the law and take over their neighbors property. Yup they just set out to take over the world.

Something's wrong here and its easy to target the Osborns but OBVIOUSLY the building permitting and inspection process is seriously broken. I'm thinking the sprinkler business is going to slow down that's for sure. Its easy for town officials to force residents into litigation because they have no personal risk or costs to pay. Good ole Phil built the model and its followed by the BOS and other dept heads. Screw the residents cause theres nothing we can do about it anyway. Especially in the middle of construction. another lawsuit, over building of a house? yeah, THAT'S worth it. Keep cranking up our town liability insurance rates and raising our taxes. But as long as we get those darn Osborns well it will all be worth it cause they're the source of all our problems. And let's kick 'em out during Christmas! YEAH!!

I repeat. Idiots. Let's get sued again!! Don't cost nuthin. duh.

Anyone ever heard of mediation? Problem solving? Work out solutions to avoid court? Naw, dat ain't how we do bidness in dis town. Lawyers just love Atkinson. Suckers. You're being manipulated like a hooker on heroine and you can't see it cause your all riled up and emotional.

After they file their lawsuit you'll come crying to the blog about your tax rates going up. Ya can't fix stupid.

Anonymous said...

to 7:13. Have you forgot that the Osborns agreed to a sprinkler system and removal of the bunkhouse/shack at edge of water when obtaining a building permit prior to the start of construction. They took a huge risk building without a sprinkler system. They should be held accountable to follow the rules just like everyone else in town. Finally the town is taking action against the Osborns who have a history of not following the rules.

Anonymous said...

7:13 PM

Are you kidding, or just one of the Osborns?

This is a case of an insider (former ZBA member) thinking they could game the system, do whatever they damn well wanted, and get away with it!

How much arrogance does it take for someone to ignore zoning laws, the Shoreline Protection Act, tneighbor'slegs legal rights, town roads, and occupancy permits, and then stupidly believe they can get away with it?

These people dug themselves into a deep hole through their own lies (broken promises) and deception; blaming it on the town is like driving a car into a 200 year-old oak tree at 50 mph and blaming the damage on the tree! Please, these people had it coming...

Anonymous said...

Ok, the Osborns filed plans with their building permit application.

They built a house off different plans. Violation #1

They signed a legal agreement to remove the bunkhouse, and didn't.
Violation #2.

They claim a deeded ROW across Carol Davis property. They base this upon a plot plan attached TO HER DEED, NOT THEIRS. Hmmm, Does thi mean I have rights to the ROW going through Atkinson Country Club?

They have received 2 letters of deficiency from NHDES. Failed to answer either. Violation #3.

They poured their foundation THEN got the permit. Violation #4.

They live in the house without an occupancy permit. Violation #5.

If any of these facts are in dispute, feel free to inform me.

If you have to come on here and attack people for no reason.

The permit/inspection process has been broken in this town, that is, for builders. If you're a townie, they look the other way when you break the law.

Time for Jones to go too.

In this case, the only one forcing the town into litigation is Maggie.

Hope she does. Want to see her get her clock cleaned. Then again, stepped on and squashed like a bug. Like to see happen to her that she tries to do to everyone else that gets in her way. Why don't they just move out of town so we can be rid of their kind?

I don't mind the town going to court for a good reason, such as this.

What I do mind is the town attorney and insurance company are representing town employees who are breaking the law, bullying people, abusing their power, etc.

I also do not want the town to go to court for failing to provide RTK info in a timely fashion.

I expect them to just provide everything, now. I expect them to uphold the law and do what's right.

Don't ask questions you don't know the answers to.

Over a month ago, the Osborns and Carol Davis were ordered by the Superior Court to sign up with one of the two Mediators that the court presented to them.

Carole Davis made an appointment and notified the Osborns as to the date and time.

The Osborns have not contacted either of the Mediators provided by the court, as ordered by the judge.

The Osborns lawyer? has not filed to "appear" at Superior Court in the case that Carol Davis has against them. I would guess Soltani is no longer their lawyer after being blindsided by Mrs. Osborn at the selectmen's meeting. She never informed him that she was being sued by anyone.

The Osborns have not replied to the N H Department of Environmental Services as demanded.
The Osborns have not acted upon the actions that the same department required of them in order to proptect Big Island Pond.

Doesn't sound like they are going to do anything but pay to restore the environment they destroyed and pay damages to the people whose lives they have abused, or have a lien put on their McMansion.

Anonymous said...

I'm curious about the part in the article "She said they have used 8 Valcat Lane as their address since they moved from their previous home in Atkinson two years ago." When the Osborns moved from their previous home in Hemlock Heights their present home was just starting to be constructed. How can one claim that as their address when there was no home on the property? Just asking. I for one am glad the Osborns no longer live in Hemlock Heights!!! :)

Anonymous said...

Don't worry, the Osborns won't move out by Christmas. They will stubbornly wait for the fines to pile up, and say the town is abusing them. They will file suit and the town will have to beat them in court. This could take years, but the fines will more than offset the town cost. They are not smart enough to do as ordered.

Anonymous said...

Ya, they will wait for a Superior Court judge to order them out, then say they are being abused by that judge. Just how stupid are the Osborns? Can't they see they can't win this one? Can't they see the Oh Poor Me doesn't work anymore? Good Grief......Stupid is as stupid does.

Better question is what the Osborns don't need to do to get an OC. They have so many things they haven't done, they couldn't get an OC within a year, if ever! They have had plenty of time to come into compliance but haven't bothered to do a thing to help themselves. They are just living there illegally waiting for the courts to order them out. They will go kicking and screaming how they are being abused, while the police are loading them into the car.

I'm glad the police will get to them, long before they can hurt anymore of their neighbors. Everyone should be thinking about what the Osborns have put poor Carol Davis through these last few months compared to what the Osborns are going through.

Finally the people that caused all these problems are getting what they deserve.

I have to say that Bill Bennett has been a very pleasant surprise, both as a selectman and as the ex officio selectmen's planning board member. He has a very strong sense of and commitment to fair play.

I would also like to thank the new volunteers on the planning board who signed up this year. They are starting to make a difference in the direction of the town.

Anonymous said...

What wonderful presents the Osborns gave their neighbors and especially Mrs. Davis this Christmas. The Osborns are gift giving Christians.

They gave mental anguish and distress to all. Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!

And they give themselves Xmas presents too. Gave themselves- a private driveway on Mrs Davis land. A private parking area for four cars on Mrs. Davis land. Gave away all her tall old growth trees to the guy at the dump. Dug up the land of yet another abutter "to improve it for them". What a gift! Devalued Davis's total land value so she can't never sell her house.

And look at the big gift under the water for all of us-- tons of dirt and junk into Big Island Pond. A GIFT THAT WILL KEEP ON GIVING FOREVER. Oh thank you! Thank you!

We homeowners and voters, beg you, kind selectmen, please be merciful and overlook the Osborn illegal occupancy and dozens of violations etc, etc, etc. Do not persecute these Christians who have given so much to so many.

Never trust an Osborn or her boot licker Sapia. Today, Tomorrow, or in their lifetimes.

Birds of a Feather after all.

I also praise Bennett for his willingness to ask tough questions, though I do notice him hold back on things that need more examination; I hope he realizes that he has support out here to get things back on the rails in this town.

Friel has asked a few questions at times but he hasn't shown the guts to really fix things -- he just seems another one of the country club "pro business" types that won't reform the town boards so that they work for the people instead of commercial interests.

We need at least one more selectman with at least half a portion of guts and sense; let's hope that it actually can happen...

Anonymous said...

Mr. Bennett made this all happen, he was the force not the other two, I agree who needs selectmen lets vote for a Mayor then we won't have to deal with the other two. Hope Friel does go for chair we don't want you and will make you regret it if you do. You have not earned it. Bennett has. Thank you Bill Bennett for fixing our town.

Anonymous said...

Our process requires three selectmen to run our town. I believe that it is unfair to say that Mr. Bennett was the only one dealing with the Osborn problem. It takes a quorum to make decisions and all three signed the document requiring the Osborns to vacate.

I also feel it is unfair to say Mr. Friel didn't try to deal with the situation. If you have been watching the selectmen's meetings, you saw Mr. Friel forcefully holding Mrs. Osborn to the requirements of her building permit, while she would cry Oh Poor Me. He never bought into that argument. He gave her every chance to produce documents of compliance and she couldn't do it. He made it very clear to her that without compliance, there would be NO OC! That speaks volumes for Mr. Friel's effectiveness.

We should feel good that the selectmen took the time to seek the required proof that the Osborns were living in their house illegally, and acted appropriately. We have two out of three selectmen working for the people now and that's a big improvement. Thank goodness Sapia and Sullivan are no longer there, or the Osborns would have never received their letter.

My hat goes off to the Selectmen for their handling of this situation. If anyone wants to complain about something, ask why it took so long or why it was allowed to happen in the first place?

If the Osborns don’t move out by the end of the day today, let’s watch and see how they follow through to get them out.


Anonymous said...

Why is anyone feeling badly for the Osborns? They moved into the house intentionally, and knew they might get caught. They took that chance and now they have to move. They brought this on themselves and have no one else to blame but themselves. How dare them blame anyone else for their problems, least of which our Board of Selectmen.

Anonymous said...

Nope JMO you are wrong again. Bennett is the point person for the Osborn issue, he deals with the concerned residents, PC, FC, and Sumner about the Osborns. He makes the decisions and the other two go along for the ride. Friel is good on camera but thats as far as it goes. A quorum to sign but Bennett does all the hard work.

JMO sounds alot like the town monitor who is often wrong and breaks the law. Now that we have Bennett that will stop him too. Time to take notice Atkinson. We have a new Sheriff that won't back down.

If Bennett did all the work then he should be congratulated, but he can't do it all by himself. I of the other selectmen had to go along with him. That wouldn't have been Childs, sooooooooo hats have to go off to Friel too.

Yes I argee, Atkinson is Government at it's worst. Men abusing their power over ego, politics and letting the blog dictate how things should be run. What about the Law, responsibility to our tax paying residents. Is this how Atkinson deals with people who disagree with them. Laws have not been broken from what I see, just a town acting in bad faith. These Selectmen should all be removed for their bad lack of judgement and behavior. Brian Boyle would never have put the town or Osborn's in this situation. Shame on you Atkinson. Live free or die or move!

What are you talking about? The Osborns obtained a building permit with conditions. They violated those conditions.

They signed the permit to build their new driveway as "owner/applicant" of the land that Carol Davis owned.

They have been warned twice by the State of shoreline protection issues.

They agreed to certain conditions in lieu of sprinkling, they reneged on those as well.

They moved into a home that they didn't have an OC for. They knew the penalty, they did it anyway.

They destroyed MRs. Davis property without her permission, in fact against her wishes. NOWHERE in THEIR deed doe it say they have a right to THAT ROW on HER property.

They graded and sloped Mr. Dubrov's driveway, then demanded $6,000 from him to offset their building costs, claiming that their new driveway wwould enhance access to his house as well.

When he complained, Maggie told him she didn't trust him, and was videotaping his property 24 hours a day, in case he had any ideas.

In short, these are not nice people. They don't play well with others. The only downside of the Towns letter to them is that it took until December to do it.

There was a simple solution to this you know. If the Osborns had honored their agreements and done what they promised, this discussion would have never started.

What we have instead is a family whose sense entitlement boggles the imagination. And when things don't go their way, they cry victim.

So, don't start with this "Evicting a family during the month of December is by far the most sadistic thing" BS. This is not some family who lost their income and can't pay their bills. IT IS THEIR OWN FAULT.

The house does not have a OC. Why, because they didn't build the house the way they wanted and tried to cut corners, as in do it and ask forgiveness later. Sorry, they bet they could get their way, and they bet wrong.

They did not follow the requirements for fire protection. What do you think would happen if they were in the house with no OC and something terrible happens. You know who would get blamed: The BOS and the town for not enforcing the OC.

The only people on here defending the Osborns and berating the BOS are the Osborns and probably their #1 supporter, Jack.

Don't worry about the Osborns not having a roof over their head for Christmas. They obviously have money to spend on a nice house. They'll survive just fine, thank you.

Anon's 10:06 - 10:56,

Your comments reveal you to be a bully (since I suspect you are the same person) or bullies (in case you are not). For someone to post on this blog calling for another resident to move, weakens everything this blog supposedly is about. It adds nothing to the conversation and makes you no better than the town officials you accuse of bullying and more.

Anon 10:56. You are what is completely wrong with organized religion. To sit here and remark that the BOS have somehow been influenced by God to order the Osborns to vacate is pathetic, idiotic, and asinine. And, judging from the tone of your post, the smug pleasure you take in this situation, makes you very UN-christian.

So, I wish you, the BOS, the Osborns, Chief Consentino, Mark Acciard, Leon Artus, Jack Sapia, and anyone else who has been "discussed" here in this blog a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 2010 is right around the corner and perhaps we can make a resolution to resolve our differences in a more meaningful way.

Since it's very obvious that Maggie Osborn is posting here allow me to address her directly:

Your attempts to blame your problems on the town and this blog make it blatantly obvious that you have the mentality of a delusional six year-old; you are completely unable to take responsibility for your own actions.

Your family is not being asked to leave a house that has never been permitted for occupancy because the town is mean, or because this blog is mean. You are being asked to vacate your home because you are blatantly DISHONEST, a quality for which you apparently have no shame.

If you see yourself as so clever that we are unable to percieve this, or if you really don't know this about yourself, you need to seriously open yourself to some mental health counseling. That us what will help your family more than any occupancy permit based on a bucket of lies and deception. Merry Christmas.

Well nothing will happen till 2010, the Osborn's to stupid to leave and not a good week for the town to ask the judge to throw them out. Osborn's don't have the guts to post here named. They have been invited!
Please go to town hall tonight let the selectmen know your support. You can also send letters to the Osborn's we all know where they live and get their mail.
Fines will be charged daily until they leave so tax payers will be getting something back.

Please show your support to the BOS.

Don't feel bad for the Osborns, they have a place to go in Windham. They can make people's lives miserable over there so they won't be out of their element. They will have plenty of time to plan their next scam and have a very Merry Christmas.

Well, seeing how this whole topic has nothing to do with Sumner, I, and I'm sure others, fail to see your point.

What is plain to see is the Osborn's felt they were not obligated to follow the same rules the rest of us smucks have to and felt that they could get away with it.

When it became apparent they were not going to get a pass suddenly it became everyone else's fault. It was Bennett's fault. It was Friel's fault. It was Kalman's fault. The only ones they were not blaming was themselves. They were being singled out, picked on.

I'm sure our collective heart's bleed for you. This is akin to that famous statement Leona Hemsley made, "Taxes for for poor people."

I hope the Osborn's are on the agenda tonight. Would be nice to see Jack make an ass of himself again.

Yes, Kalman did reprimand the town of Hampstead for his clients. The document and how it was served proved to be worthless by Kalman. Maybe this is just a show for the blog. Keep letters from Artus, Goodriche, Dobrov, off their back. Makes it look like the BOS are doing something about the Osborn's when they are not. Nice going Kalman! Wonder if Bennett is aware of the Hampstead case?

V. New Business
A. Invitation to Bid – Legal Services

The Board reviewed the bids received from the following Attorney’s;
Sumner F. Kalman, Attorney at Law, P.C., Plaistow, NH
Beaumont & Campbell Prof. Ass’n. Attorneys, Salem, NH – not taking any new clients at this time but would take special cases where there may be conflict with regular counsel.
Upton & Hatfield Attorneys at Law, Portsmouth, NH
Soule, Leslie, Kidder, Sayward & Loughman P.L.L.C., Salem, NH
Peter J. Loughlin Attorney at Law, Portsmouth, NH – not taking any new clients at this time.
Lane Law Offices PA, Exeter, NH

Town Administrator informed the Board that she sent out 17 invitations to submit requests for proposals for legal representation of the Town. The Board discussed the fee schedules and billing policies reflected in each proposal. Selectman asked if the town’s present Attorney submitted a proposal. Selectman stated that we are looking for an Attorney to take over new issues and asked are we going to keep the current Town Attorney working on existing cases. It was discussed that the Town Attorney would stay with any existing cases. Selectman asked if we can hire out an Attorney that specializes in certain areas when the need arises. The Board would have that option. legal representation included services for land use issues, labor relations, State, Local & Municipal Law. Recently the town hired Soule, Leslie, Kidder, Sayward & Loughman to work on a lawsuit against the town.

Selectman stated that Sumner Kalman’s proposal included a letter of recommendation from the Town of Plaistow Town Manager Jason Hoch. Sumner Kalman has been the Town of Newton’s Town Counsel in the past.

Sumner F. Kalman Attorney at Law, Plaistow, NH as the new Town Counsel. Second by Selectman Vote: Unanimous. The Board discussed that all new cases are to be run by our new Town Counsel and we need to send a memo to the Planning Board and Zoning Board noticing them of this change. The Board discussed that Sumner Kalman has one of the lowest hourly rates quoted at $155 per hour and mileage is not billed in addition to time.

Selectman will call Sumner Kalman in the morning and to let them know of the Board’s decision to hire Sumner Kalman as Town Counsel.

This is a little confusing. The address is in Atkinson. The location is far closer to Hampstead than Plaistow. If fact, it should be in Hampstead since you have to drive through their town lines even to get to it (and it would be their problem).

So, how is Plaistow involved again?

Be afraid, be very afraid. Sometimes we get what we pay for and we get what we deserve. Town Counsel Sumner Kalman's $155 hourly fee is a Trojan Horse. The inside information he gleans from his role in our government is worth thousands and thousands of dollars to his real estate clients. This is worse than having a Planning Board full of developers.

Why didn't the police evict the Osborns when they responded to the domestic violence call?

Even though Plaistow Dispatches for Atkinson on the weekends and after hours, an Atkinson Officer is dispatched. I imagine that on a domestic violence call more than one officer was dispatched. These type of calls put police officers in the most danger of being hurt themselves.

The posting says that no charges were filed. It is the law that the police file the charges on a domestic violence, as the victims often are afraid to do so. The police should have removed the abuser to the police to the police station or at least removed them from the residence.

I have seen it happen in my neighborhood in Atkinson.

I would like to wish ALL the residents of Atkinson a Very Merry Christmas!

We have spent the last year or two bickering, and debating issues of import to us on this blog, and I believe that this blog has served a valuable purpose as a bulletin board where people could speak their mind about town issues, who may be reticent to do so in the public forum, either due to fear of reprisal(something that should never temper free speech) or due to inconvenience. Although this board has occasionally wandered from town issues into partisan bickering, overall I feel it has filled a niche.

This is a time when most people are reflective not only of the year that is winding down, but the path that they are following. It is a magical time when the sheer excitement on children's faces far outweighs a troubling economy, or the balance on our credit cards. Tonight kids all over town will be logging onto NORAD's Santa monitor site to see where Santa is before they go to bed. They will fall asleep dreaming of food, and presents in the morning.

At the same time there are children from broken homes, children whose parents are not as fortunate as some of us may be, children whose Christmas wish is for a coat, or gloves, or a blanket. As heart wrenching as this may be, please take a moment out of your day tomorrow to say a silent prayer for these children. If you wish to donate to these children, please feel free to contact me @ 781-424-8863, I will bring your donations to the YWCA- Lawrence children's services.

Thank you, and Merry Christmas to all.

To all turns out that the Osborns who are living illegally in their new home (McMansion) are paying taxes on the prior small seasonal home. As a result of not having a CO (certificate of Occupancy) their tax status has not been reevaluated. So while the rest of us are paying are fair share of taxes...the Osborns are stiffing the town. So let's review: Paying less taxes, kids in school who are not legal residents, defying the town sprinkler system, bunkhouse(shack) still standing, illegal dock, stealing other peoples' land, and the list goes on.
So Osborns...Time to follow the rules, do what you are suppose to do to get your CO, and pay your fair share of taxes.

Removing the overlay is just the beginning. The following will need to be done under the eye of the state's environmental department; restore the grade, boulders, century old trees and other natural vegetation.

The state has its own issues with the Osborn and the damage that they have done on their own property.

The possible amount of "damages" is unfathomable, and they still won't have an occupancy permit.

Not sure why you think Frank Polito has given the Osborn's anything. Frank did not want to let them build on Hemlock Shore but was forced by law, did not want her on the Board, forced by Sapia, had her removed from the board and has made them agree to remove their bunkhouse/shack, requested by abutters. Frank will also make sure they don't get to keep their bunkhouse/shack. He is the only one who gets the BOS to do what he wants. Frank is a friend to residents and does a lot for Atkinson. It is well known he does not think to highly of Maggie and will hold her to the letter of the law and beyond if he has to. If she tries to keep the shack Frank will make sure it cost her big dollars to do so, years in court. She'll go bankrupt if she tries to keep it.

Ok, so here is what happened;

The Osborns claimed their island hideaway was broken into. They called the police. Apparently the police called the Staties. The Staties are investigating to avoid any conflicts. Funny, I remember when Acards house and car were vandalized, and the paper said he asked for the staties to investigate, but Phil was in the paper saying he wouldn't call them, his dept. was perfectly able to handle the investigation he said, even though it was his name in the guys car!

Here is the funny thing though, if Phil turned this over to the staties, then why did he spend over an hour, on his own, without any other officers, in the Osborns house Sat. nite? Wouldn't that compromise the Staties invetigation?

The first step to take to resolve all town issues is to have a town moderator who does not play fast and loose with the rules and RSA laws at deliberative session.

Polito considers himself a LAWMAKER and this has to change. Instead of moderating he conspires to encourage hacks at deliberative session to turn valid citizen articles into meaningless garbage.

You think your trucking article is not going down to the same fate as all the other Citizen Petition Warrant Articles signed by hundreds of others? If you are not at deliberative session January 30th then you can watch your article go down in flames on TV. That's if the chief or another town official has not called your supporters and asked them "Why did you sign this SHIT" an hour after it is submitted.

You want to take back control of town government and see real transparency and punishment for theft of town services?

Then you must come to town deliberative session, January 30th and vote to strike evil at its core.

Vote for Frank Polito to step down as moderator for violating the Public Trust, legal RSA Rules and his own Moderator Rules. If the moderator says he can’t be removed and you are HELPLESS…then you need to decide if the town belongs to you, the honest citizens, or to THEM. If it belongs to the honest citizens and all of you SHOW UP then he will be the one who is HELPLESS.

A new moderator must give individuals ample time to explain ALL SIDES OF THE ISSURES with no heckling like Polito allows. Not to mention… follow the laws of public meetings.

To remove bullies and to protect your state laws and Constitional rights you must strike evil at its heart.

Come to deliberative session and vote for the moderator to step down. Then you can:

1. Freely discuss and vote on the theft of town services

2. Misappropriation of Homeland security grant equipment (we are now asked to buy a second time

3. Failure to supply legally required police reports

4. Failure of the ZBA board chairman Polito so that "loopholes" allowed the theft of Carol Davis land

5. The Lack of true separation of elderly affairs from the police dept sufficient to result in police staff in fact and by admission…working on the town clock illegally (“double-dipping”)

As to the last issue the selectmen know about the “Double-Dipping”, and asked IN SECRET for a check back for the money...then hid the facts from all voters so voters can issue reprimand at deliberative session January 30th

No more needs to be said. You know your responsibility. You will come to deliberative session January 305h…and hold them to account. You will vote to prevent rampant spending such that your property taxes double….or will you opt to spend your day shopping at Kittery only to find out later you can't AFFORD the luxury of living in your own home!!!

Once again no Atkinson Police Log.
Guess they didn't dispatch any calls.
Crime in Atkinson must be non-existant. Is Atkinson afraid that the residents will know how little work they are doing?

I am telling you the only reason why the Osborn's get away with half the shit they do is because they are having inside favors done for them.i swear that if this shit was happening to anyone else the out come would be a whole lot different. time to get this joke of a police chief the hell out. he is a liar a cheater and a disgrace.

Anonymous said...

YOU ARE SICK Maggie how are you going to point the finger at Leon, like always just seems easy to blame him right? That's low even for you! You truly have mental health issues, If you are interested I can get you the help you need.and i ma not joking I am reaching out to you I CAN help you.

Anonymous said...

What I truly find inconceivable is that Maggie and Co. still wish to stay in Hemlock Heights when it's OBVIOUS NO ONE here wants her as a neighbor.

And, I'm getting pretty sick of seeing one of them race past going WELL over the 15mph speed limit on their way to their "driveway" when I am out walking. There are children and many dogs who live in this neighborhood who have the right to walk and play safely, hence the low speed limit. Get a clue, woman!

-Your friendly neighbor.

Anonymous said...

I totally feel were your coming from. I don't even let my children play out side because I am afraid of what they may do to my child OR ACCUSE MY CHILD OF DOING!The neighborhood is not safe with them around it's sad it has come to this. I have lived in this area for a while, I have never seen it this bad. ...but you bet your ass if you sped by her and her kids going 16mph you would have police at your door because this woman is claiming you tried to run her down.

Maggie and Daniel are the scum of the earth. They feel with their political connetion, they can get away with ANYTHING in the Town of Atkinson. Time to prove them wrong.

Maggie has created soooooooo many problems for her family, that I predict they will go down soon. How long can the Town of Atkinson protect them from their fate.

You may think this subject is boaring but try living this every day. I am dusgusted with the Osborns and the way they get away with the things they do. And the way they get away with treating this towm like it's there own personal play ground is disgusting. This family is vendictive and will hurt anyone who gets in there way with threats and lies . I have learned that 1st hand. I just hope they are gone before the summer. I can't imagine how terrible they are going to make it on all the people who live all around them.They will stop at nothing and I mean nothing if they don't get there way and will go out of there way to hurt anyone who get's in there way or disagree's with them. example getting Leon ARRESTED ON ACCUSATIONS NOT HARD FACTS ! It's sad that this is what they have lowered themselves to but this is just the way guilty people act, It's a shame really. I think it's time to stand up and stop being shit on by these people! What is it going to take?

No police logs for Atkinson NH hmmmmmmm wonder why...wink wink can we say inside favors!

Anonymous said...

Anon 9:31 PM: I hear you. Atkinson is way behind the times in reporting and document of anything. Other small towns have web sites which list meeting minutes, agendas for meetings, police logs, etc. Atkinson's web site did have a police log but it has not been updated in years.

Crime does happen in Atkinson and residents need to know where things have occurred so they can keep a more watchful eye.

I wouldn't blame this on Consentino; it's an issue with the town's reporting for everything. It's time for Atkinson to keep up with the times.

Try to get logs or reports from Consentino, then come back and tell us he isn't the problem.

ask to many questions to that man and see what HAPPENS !!!

Thanks Consentino for confirming the point.

Still living at 8 VALCAT with no OC!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND I ASK WHY?

Anonymous said...

To Anon January 15, 2010 2:12 PM

In my opinion the answer is clear. Consentino is using his influence with his political partners to stop any eviction of one of his supporters. Just another reason he has to be fired.

Anonymous said...

That just angers me! If it were you or I we would not be living in our home with no oc.This is complete BS. Who is responsible for fining these people in this town. I hope they will at least be fined for totally disregarding the notice to vacate the premises, by the bos.This just blows my mind how they keep getting away with shit over and over and over again.I mean it quite obvious that they are living there. I drive by there and there trash is out every week I see her at the bus stop with her children and the lights are always on. I mean how much can one family get away with before someone does something about this. GOD FORBID THERE HOUSE BURNT DOWN WITH THEM IN WHO WOULD BE TO BLAME FOR IT THE BOS FOR NOT ENFORCING THERE RULES THE CHIEF OF POLICE FOR PROTECTING THEM SO I mean really it will be there asses so what the hell are they waiting for?

News Flash.

Frank Polito has resigned all his town positions. One less town offical to try and cover Maggie Osborn's ass. She is soooooo hurting with her support machine dropping like flies. Soon she will be gone too.

How's is feel Maggie? Consentino will be gone next, and you will have no political clout left. Sapia can't even help you anymore.

Can you see the writting on the wall? My guess is no but you will
very very soon.

Couldn't happen to better people.

Hey feeling warm and fuzzy knowing the selectmen hired a private eye to prove you are living illegally in you house at 8 Valcat lane?

Don't get to comfy..........I don't believe u will be there long.

For those that didn't see the article in yesterdays Manchester Union Leader, might want to get a copy or go online. Seems like Maggie filed a report with the Atkinson PD of a suspicious car on Chase Island road as viewed from her “Crows Nest”, only to find out it was a Private Eye hired by the town. Her efforts only proved what the Selectmen needed to know. How DUMB is that.

What’s it going to take Maggie to get you from continuing to break the law? Are you going to do the right thing know, or will we be reading how your rights are being violated when the Police drag you and Daniel out of your McMansion KICKING AND SCREAMING?

You just can’t make this stuff up folks, only an OSBORN could be soooooooooooo STUPID.
