Spotting an Online Shopping Scam

The past year we’ve changed our habits and taken more of our shopping online, and scammers have taken notice. Scammers are creating legitimate-looking websites using stolen images and fake promises to take advantage of people purchasing from unfamiliar sellers. Some are even preying on people looking to buy a pet or a big-ticket item, touting fake offers for “contactless delivery” that could leave you empty-handed and out hundreds or thousands of dollars.

Four signs to look for:
  1. Unreal deals. Scammers may lure you in with a deeply discounted offer that seems too good to be true, only to tack on additional fees or communicate backorder status on the item once you make the first payment.
  2. Unknown sellers. Anyone can set up an online shop or post an ad on social media. Legitimate sellers will have no problem doing a Zoom type meeting to let you see what you’re buying, especially if it’s a big-ticket item like a used car or pet. If you are looking for a pet, please consider adopting locally to help ensure a safe experience.
  3. Pressure to buy. Be wary of any seller who pressures you to buy right away or asks you to pay using a digital payment service such as Zelle®, Wire transfers, or Gift cards — none of which provide payment protection.
  4. Bad reviews. Do an online search on the seller, product, and related scams by using terms like “review,” “complaint,” or “scam”. No reviews can be a red flag too. A search for the same product will often return the legitimate item, large differences in price should be questioned.

First Issue Tax Bills of 2021
The first issue tax bills of 2021 will be sent the week of 5/24 and will be due on July 6, 2021. 

Please be reminded that if you recently moved, we may not have your most up-to-date mailing address and if you recently purchased a home in town, the Assessor’s office uses the mailing address listed on your deed, which may not be accurate.  Contact the Tax Collector, or Selectmen’s Office to notify us of any address change.

Traffic Enforcement Patrol

New Hampton Police Department
May 13, 2021
In response to the drastic increase in safety concerns from our residents regarding the increase in speeding and distracted driving, The New Hampton Police Department, with assistance from the Belknap County Sheriff’s Department, conducted a traffic enforcement saturation patrol. The patrol was conducted on May 13th, 2021 from 3:30 PM – 6:30 PM with a focus on educating drivers on the rules of the road and the safety concerns of our residents. Enforcement action was taken when deemed appropriate.

The following are the primary areas of patrol and were chosen based on resident reporting;  (1) The southern end of Winona Rd and beginnings of Straits Rd, Hatch Corner Rd and Waukewan Rd (2) The northern end of both Winona Rd and NH Rt 132 N near Ashland, (3) The entirety of Dana Hill Rd and the western end of Straits Rd, (4) The entirety of Old Bristol Rd and beginning of Blake Hill Rd, and (5) NH Rt 104 from the area of Sinclair Hill Rd to the Bristol town line, the southern end of NH Rt 132N, and Main St.

During the three hours of patrol, 39 motor vehicle stops were conducted. Of those, 34 drivers were educated and received warnings, while five received citations.

In addition, one of those stops resulted in the driver being arrested for driving after having his license suspended. He was also driving a vehicle that was un-registered and un-inspected. That vehicle was subsequently seized for a search warrant as there was evidence it contained illegal drugs.

On behalf of the New Hampton Police Department, I would like to thank all of our residents for your continued support, and ask that you continue to let the department of any problems facing our community so we can work diligently in addressing them. Please call the department at 603-744-5423 or email me at to let us know of any concerns. Call 911 for all emergencies.

The Personal Library of Judge Stephen G. Nash

The History Corner
A great book is a great thing.
The spine tingles when one enters a library – it is like entering a room full of heroes.

Many of us know the story of how in the late 1800s New Hampton native son Judge Stephen Gordon Nash had a dream to create a library – and did so! Judge Nash was born in New Hampton Village in 1822. His father, John Nash was an early treasurer of New Hampton School and his mother, Abigail Gordon, provided housing for students at the female seminary. The earliest library in town, the New Hampton Social Library (1813), was located in their home on Main Street.
In 1838 Judge Nash graduated from New Hampton School at age sixteen. After completing his B.A. at Dartmouth in 1842, he returned to NHS to teach for a year. Choosing law as a vocation, he became a barrister in Boston and then the youngest Superior Court Judge appointed by the Commonwealth. Upon retirement, the Judge and his wife, Mary Upton, were determined to give back to the town and school that built the foundation for a successful life.
In 1887 the Judge petitioned the New Hampshire State Legislature to incorporate a library, using the surname of both his parents as its name - The Gordon-Nash Library – and the seeds were sown. While the Judge died before full fruition, his wife, Mary Upton Nash, and other long-time friends (many associated with New Hampton School) worked tirelessly to ensure the beautiful library was built, endowed, and populated with 6000 books from the Judge’s library and 4000 books from New Hampton School’s literary societies. The majority of the Judge’s estate was dedicated to establishing, “a public library and reading room in 'Smith's Village' in New Hampton, New Hampshire, my native place, for the free use of said town, whether residents, students or sojourners."
As the books from the Judge’s private library made up the core of the library’s holdings, they circulated freely among residents, students and sojourners.  After several decades of hard use, library trustees made the wise decision to remove the books from general circulation and tuck them away. The case below, in the newly renovated Judge Nash Room, holds a small sample of the 2500 books that remain from the gift of the Judge and his wife, Mary Nash.
In almost all of his books, the Judge signed his name and recorded the date – and often the place – he acquired the volume. In many books he used triangles and circles to note something – but we have not cracked his code (yet!). He also underlined and wrote many notes in the margins – as the Judge was an avid reader in many genres.
The next History Corner will feature a “book report” on one of the books from the Judge’s library. Spoiler Alert: while many of us might feel proud to have another native son, Franklin Pierce, as our state’s only member to hold the office of President, be prepared for Judge Nash’s not so enthusiastic comments on his contemporary, President Pierce. Stay tuned!

Road Surface Management System Report Results

In March the town voted to approve appropriations to perform an inventory and evaluation of paved town roads using a road surface management software (RSMS) to develop a detailed management plan with recommendations for future improvements.  The Lakes Region Planning Commission performed this assessment and created this plan in partnership with the NH Department of Transportation and UNH Technology Transfer Center. Inventory and Assessments were entered into the RSMS software for analysis, prioritization, and generation of repair strategies. Repair strategies and a 10-year budget plan have been prepared in partnership with the town and presented within this report.  This management plan will be used as a tool by the Highway Dept.
