Drug Take Back Day

New Hampton Police Department taking back unwanted prescription drugs April 27
at the New Hampton Police Department
New Hampton, NH – On Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the New Hampton Police Department and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public its 17th opportunity in nine years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to the New Hampton Police Department at 24 Intervale Drive, New Hampton NH 03256. (Sites cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
Last fall Americans turned in nearly 460 tons (more than 900,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at more than 5,800 sites operated by the DEA and almost 4,800 of its state and local law enforcement partners. Overall, in its 16 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in almost 11 million pounds—nearly 5,500 tons—of pills.
This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health shows year after year that the majority of misused and abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including someone else’s medication being stolen from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards.

Bringing the Presence of the Past into the Present
New Hampton Had a Train Wreck?
Although I grew up in New Hampton, I do not recall hearing about two locomotives involved in a head-on crash in our town. A stereoscopic card on eBay, with its faded image of the wreckage of two locomotives, led to many questions. These were quickly answered by a framed collage hanging on the wall of the New Hampton Historical Society Museum. Local resident Volker Antoni, through photos and text, narrates the story of The Railroad in New Hampton, including the collision. The following information is from Volker’s work.
On May 8, 1882, through an error of the dispatcher, the daily local from Plymouth to Concord collided with a cattle train out of Vermont. While most of the crew members were able to jump free before the crash, there were two fatalities. One was William Abel (1834-1882) of Bridgewater, an English immigrant who owned a knitting machine factory in Laconia, and the other was Hiram Jones (1832-1882), a horse drover from Barre, VT. Volker concludes, “The conductor and as such, the person in charge of the passenger train was Thomas Robie (1830-1893). Passengers referred to his train as ‘Robie’s Train.’ He was a New Hampton native. Twice-daily on his route he passed the Robie family homestead and farm on the east side of Winona Road at the intersection of Straits Road and extending down to the Fogg’s Road Station.”

½ of a Stereoscopic View Card found on eBay. The photographers, C. F. Bracy of Ashland and C.H. Colby of Meredith took several photographs of the wreck from various perspectives – all of which were sold to the public! Winona Lake was once “Long Pond.”
All aboard, indeed! For more information on the history of the town, please visit the New Hampton Historical Society website at
