Since 1989, CASA of NH has been training volunteers to speak up for abused and neglected children in NH’s court system. Diane Valladares is the Recruitment Director at CASA and she joined Roy on today’s Morning Show to talk about CASA‘s mission and about volunteering for CASA. Listen below!

Freedom – On Saturday, February 27th, at approximately 3:45 pm NH Fish and Game was notified of a single party snowmobile accident on Ossipee Lake in Freedom. On scene Conservation Officers along with the Freedom Fire Department found a single male who had been riding the shore line of Ossipee Lake.  On scene investigation revealed that the snowmobile had apparently struck a large snow covered rock resulting in the snowmobile and operator being ejected approximately 75 feet. The operator identified as Christopher Baddeley, 48 of Windham NH, suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries and was taken by ambulance to Huggins Hospital in Wolfeboro. Speed and riding conditions seem to be contributing factors. Riders are reminded to pay extra attention in unfamiliar areas and adjust speed accordingly.

Santa Claus took some time out of his very busy schedule today and stopped by the WMWV Studio to visit with Roy on the Morning Show. Santa answered listener questions and even had some very special shout outs for some very good boys and girls from the Mount Washington Valley.

He also asked a favor of us here in the valley, to go out tonight at 6pm to our yards and ring a bell in order to help send “Christmas Cheer” to all. You can even send a clip of yourself “ringing in Christmas” on Santa’s Facebook Page. Listen to the interview for the details and click here for Santa’s Facebook.

Merry Christmas from WMWV!
