One of our local majestic Bull Moose!

Theres nothing more fantastic, than to catch a glimpse of the biggest mammals in our
area, especially when the rack is in velvet. Bull Moose shed their antlers each winter and grow a new set each spring. Cow moose
do not grow antlers. Did you know that the Reindeer/Caribou is the only deer species in which both the male and female have
antlers! The greatest antler spread of a bull taken in NH is 68 inches. Moose eat leaves, branches and twigs, water and marsh
plants. They may consume 45 pounds of food per day. Moose can live up to 20 years. The average is 10-15 years. As big as they
are, moose can trot as fast as 35 miles an hour, are good swimmers and can remain underwater for up to a minute!

Bermans Bits

Northcountry News Picture Of The Week
A beautiful photo of mom and her fawn! Taken by 12 year old
Dylan of Bethlehem, NH! Thanks for sharing Dylan.
If you have a photo which you think could make it as our pic-
ture of the week, let us know. Email it to
ncnewsnh@gmail.com. Your picture could become our next
Picture Of The Week!
Incessantly scouring the uni-
verse for the weird, the wacky,
and the stupid so you dont
have to.
Greetings, and thanks for join-
ing me for another week.
Starting us off are a few news
stories you may have missed.
First, If you keep on doing
what youve always done,
youll keep on getting what
youve always got. W. L.
Bateman. As a result of that
quote, I am supporting Gary
Johnson, the Libertarian candi-
date for president, as I support
None of the above. If every-
one did what I am doing, maybe
wed finally get something dif-
ferent!
Next, the New York Daily News
reported that Ryan
Thompson took his girlfriend,
Carlie, up for a romantic flight
over the city. As they were fly-
ing, he told her that the planes
controls were not responding
and asked her to read aloud
from a sheet containing emer-
gency procedures. In a hidden
camera video of the event post-
ed by Thompson to YouTube
entitled In Descent Proposal,
Carlie is shown reading from
the mock procedures, The
checklist is complete and it
says the rings may be engaged
and to initiate the ring
engagement procedure. Will
you marry me? she said.
Thompson is then shown
regaining control of the aircraft
as it dawns on her that there was
no emergency and that she has
been proposed to. The couple is
shown embracing in the air;
back on the ground once she
gives him a frazzled Yes.
Finally, a traffic cop in
Thailand set a new record when
he delivered his 47th baby on
Bangkoks busy streets. Mana
Jokkoksung, 43, has now
brought the most babies into the
world among the countrys
multi-talented traffic cops, The
Telegraph reported. Because of
tremendously concentrated traf-
fic, Jokkoksung and other offi-
cers are given midwife training
to help women who are in labor
but arent going to make it to the
hospital. The first time [I deliv-
ered a baby] I was shaking, I
was excited, scared, Jokkosung
said. Scared of the blood com-
ing out, scared of the head com-
ing out. Even now, I wonder if
Ill get there on time, if Ill find
the car. The 19-year-old moth-
er of Jokkoksungs latest bundle
of joy said she was very grateful
for his help. It is good that we
have this project otherwise it
would be dangerous for me and
my daughter. She is very small
and I was so worried because
she was in my pants, Chotika
Chuennoi told The Telegraph.
Its old news now, but I was
excited to hear that the land on
Tenney Mountain Highway will
have a McDonalds and a bank,
two things we really need here...
just sayin.
Record time - the worlds
largest deliverable pizza has
been combined with the worlds
largest delivery pizza box. Scott
Weiner, owner and proprietor of
Scotts Pizza Tours not only
loves pizza, he collects pizza
boxes as a hobby, because he
admires their artwork, design
and function. In his blog,
Weiner described the pie
which comes in a box 54 inches
square from Big Mamas &
Papas restaurant in Los
Angeles: It costs $200 and feeds
50-70 people. With 15 eaters,
we got through about half the
pie before everyone passed out.
This pizza is so large it doesnt
fit through doorways. We took it
out back and set up a card table
to support its mass. Weiner tells
the Huffington Post that the pie
was so large, workers had to
bake it with the oven door open
and rotate it every few min-
utes.The way they have to bake
it, its so inconvenient, Weiner
says. [But] it tasted way better
than I thought it would....
In a related Bit, Evans
Neighborhood Pizza in Fort
Myers, FL is serving up a pizza
covered in swamp monsters.
The family restaurant, which
has been serving pizza to Fort
Myers for 11 years, recently
debuted the Everglades Pizza
topped with swamp cabbage,
frog legs, alligator and python
fillets. The owners, husband
and wife Evan and Avis Daniell,
concocted this $45 pie to drum
up some excitement for the
restaurants Facebook page, but
didnt really expect to sell many.
Weve actually averaged one to
two a month, Evan Daniell told
News-Press. Its a mix. Locals
who are used to the idea of frog
legs and gator, and tourists who
want to try something complete-
ly different. Me? Green pep-
pers, pepperoni, and mush-
rooms will do just fine, thank
you!
In yet another vaguely related
Bit, an eastern Kentucky health
inspector says he has shut down
a restaurant after finding road-
kill in its kitchen. Paul Lawson
told WYMT-TV that he went to
inspect the Red Flower Chinese
Restaurant in Williamsburg
after customers complained to
the health department that it
appeared employees had
brought in a dead animal.
Lawson said he immediately
shut the place down. Lawson
said the restaurant owners son
apparently picked a dead deer
up from a roadside and brought
it to the eatery. Lawson said the
owner reported he didnt plan to
serve the animal to customers;
he planned to feed it to his fam-
ily. The inspector said the owner
wasnt aware of health regula-
tions, and will not face any
fines. He said the restaurant can
reopen if it passes another
health inspection.
You think you have problems?
Several businesses in the Texas
town of Waco are dealing with a
smelly problem that wont go
away: decaying cricket carcass-
es. A bank, a drugstore and other
businesses have been inundated
with the malodorous onslaught
of dead crickets that have been
trapped inside walls and have
collected on sidewalks. Fred
Huffman, an entomologist who
runs a local pest control busi-
ness, says the cricket problem
has been worse this year
because mild winter conditions
resulted in the insects appearing
earlier than normal. [Huffington
Post]
From my Australian correspon-
dent, a few humourous things to
ponder: (1) My neighbour
knocked on my door at 2:30am
this morning, can you believe
that, 2:30am?! Luckily for him
I was still up playing my
Bagpipes. (2) Paddy says,
Mick, Im thinking of buying a
Labrador. Forget that, says
Mick. Have you seen how
many of their owners go
blind?(3) I saw a poor old lady
fall over today on the ice!! At
least I presume she was poor -
she only had $1.20 in her purse.
(4) My girlfriend thinks that Im
a stalker. Well, shes not exactly
my girlfriend yet. (5) When I
was in the pub I heard a couple
of plonkas saying that they
wouldnt feel safe on an aircraft
if they knew the pilot was a
woman. What a pair of sexists. I
mean, its not as if shed have to
park the bloody thing! Bonus:
Just got back from my mates
funeral. He died after being hit
on the head with a tennis ball. It
was quite a service.
Finally, modern ancient
weapons - hot stuff. Thousands
of farmers in the Indian state of
Assam are growing the worlds
hottest chili peppers and selling
them to the army to make
weapons, reported Londons
The Guardian. One expert said a
few drops of bhut jolokia
could make you senseless.
Blasting a container of it into a
terrorist hideout, he said, would
make them all drop their guns
after just one breath. (Bhut
jolokia has also been used tradi-
tionally to repel elephant
attacks.)
Later.

the most progress in improving
student achievement levels as
measured by state assessments
or nationally-normed tests.
One of the three schools
choosen was a local one,
Lisbon Middle School
(LRMS)
Lisbon Regional Middle School
(LRMS) is a small, rural school
located in the White Mountains
of Northern New Hampshire.
This small sized and total K-12
configuration promote a family
atmosphere in which everyone
supports one another, providing
the staff the opportunity for a
great deal of vertical articula-
tion. Teachers have the opportu-
nity to align curriculum
throughout grades K-12 to pro-
vide a smooth transition for
their students as they move
through Lisbons system. Their
size also enables them to per-
sonalize learning. Students do
not fall between the cracks; they
know their children and closely
track their behaviors and grades.
They hold intervention team
meetings weekly and parent
meetings whenever any individ-
ual students grades fall or
behavior is questionable. Their
efforts provide them the ability
to match appropriate interven-
tions with any deficiencies. The
expected result is reducing or
eliminating the gap between the
entire population and their sub-
groups of students. One accom-
plishment about which they are
most excited is how successful
they have been at moving their
students out of the lowest level
on the New England Common
Assessment Program (NECAP).
This upward movement adds to
their already impressive per-
centage of students performing
at the proficient level or above
on the NECAPs.
Each year since 1982, the U.S.
Department of Education has
sought out schools where stu-
dents attain and maintain high
academic goals, including those
that beat the odds. The Blue
Ribbon Schools program is part
of a larger US Department of
Education effort to identify and
disseminate knowledge about
best school leadership and
teaching practices. These Blue
Ribbon Schools are an example
of what teachers and students
can achieve.
The principal and one teacher
from each school are invited to
celebrate the honor at an awards
ceremony scheduled for Nov.
14-15 in Washington, D.C.

and other award/recognition

Management Areas, U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers flood con-
trol areas and private lands open
to public hunting. Each site will
receive approximately 150 birds
for the season, with the excep-
tion of federal flood control
areas, which will receive
approximately 50 more birds
per site. Fish and Game will
continue to release birds as
close to opening day as possible
and to consistently stock a
Thursday/Friday schedule in-
season.
The pheasant season runs
October 1 through December
31, with a daily limit of 2, and a
season limit of 10. All stocking
will be completed by the start of
moose season.
"Please keep safety foremost in
mind: wear hunter orange, con-
trol your firearm muzzle and
know where your hunting part-
ners are at all times. Shoot only
within your zone of fire, and
keep your hunting dog under
control," said Fish and Game
Pheasant Project Leader Karen
Bordeau. "Do take the time to
thank private and federal
landowners when you use their
lands. Your hunting ethics on
their lands and your thoughtful-
ness will help keep these lands
open."
The list of towns to be stocked
(including road names) can be
seen on the Fish and Game web-

YOUTH DRUG PREVEN-
TION CAMPAIGN: "THE
BEST ME IS DRUG FREE
- Ten schools from across the
U.S. will win $1,000 grant for
drug prevention -
- Ten families will win an iPad
for the home -
The National Family
Partnership (NFP) announces
the national contest for its 27th
annual Red Ribbon Week,
Oct. 23-31. Red Ribbon Week is
the oldest and largest drug pre-
vention campaign in the coun-
try. In 1988 after the murder of a
DEA agent, parents, youth and
teachers in communities across
the country began wearing Red
Ribbons as a symbol of their
commitment to raise awareness
of the destruction caused by
drugs. This year, families can
get involved by entering a con-
test to promote awareness in
their neighborhoods and win a
drug prevention grant for their
schools.
Families can enter Red Ribbon
Week's contest to win a
$1,000 grant for their school
and a new iPad for their home.
To participate in the contest
families and students will deco-
rate the front of their homes
with this year's message: "The
Best Me Is Drug FreeTM."
Heres how students and their
families can enter to win $1,000
for their K-12 school and a new
iPad:
Students bring the Red Ribbon
Week message home by work-
ing alongside parents to deco-
rate their front door, mailbox,
fence, etc. with this years
theme The Best Me Is Drug
accessible via the culvert and
road that is typically used to
cross the Mascoma River. For

all times.
-Always wear safety glasses.
-Know where your hunting
partners are at all times.

The Northcountry News
I know, this is a hiking column
and Im sure I drive some other
folks who write about hiking
crazy by how I deviate from a
simple, straight forward piece of
writing about trail conditions
and elevation gain. I knowI
should be writing about fall
foliage and a hike that takes us
through the bright orange, yel-
low, and red canopy of the sea-
son to a lofty viewpoint allow-
ing us to drink in Octobers tap-
estry as it spreads out below us.
After all, we are in the White
Mountains, the most beautiful
place in the world this time of
year. And yet this weeks col-
umn offers a different look at
this season, and the autumn of
ones life. And once again, Im
sure I will disappoint some of
my peers who write about these
trails we all tramp.
Each morning, the first thing I
do when I wake up is spend five
minutes counting my blessings.
I start out each day with what I
call an attitude for gratitude.
Over the past few years Ive
started off that list with a little
black and white dog, the moun-
tains we live in, our story thats
been published not just by this
newspaper every two weeks but
also by HarperCollins in book
form, and more than any of that,
I am thankful for this simpler
more soulful existence weve
found a way to live. Not every-
one finds their dreams in this
lifetime. And fewer still can
live them on a daily basis.
Thats how fortunate I am.
But what makes our life all the
better is that from time to time
we can take our passion and use
it to make someone elses life
just a little better. What could
be better than doing what you
love and have it impact some-
one elses life?
Through the years weve used
our hiking as a way to raise
money and awareness for the
fight against cancer, for animals
in need, and for literacy. And
yet nothing quite compares to
those rare treks when Atticus
and I take a friend to the top of
a mountain and let them feel
what we get to appreciate regu-
larly.
As anyone who knows us will
tell you, Atticus and I are mostly
a private pair. Yes, we have our
friends and we used to hike
from time to time with others,
but these days the trails and our
experiences on them mean just
too much for us to give them up
to someone else. The woods are
where he and I bond. Its where
our friendship is renewed time
and again. But every now and
then if someone is special to us,
we share this intimate corner of
our lives with them.
Over the next few days we hope
to be doing just that. We have
this elderly friendhis name is
Will. Hes mostly blind to the
point where he can see only
shapes and shadows. He is deaf
and arthritic and when we met
him in May he could barely
walk and he was in such pain he
didnt liked to be touched. Like
Atticus he is a miniature
schnauzer and through an
inconceivable twist of fate, the
family he lived with for the
entire fifteen years of his life
dropped him off in a kill shelter
in New Jersey. Fortunately for
Will, the New Jersey Schnauzer
Rescue Network swooped in
and saved his life. But they
knew they had a difficult case
on their hands and would have a
hard time placing him in a
home. I surprised both Atticus
and myself when I decided that
we would take him in.
Atticus has always been the
only dog in my life. Hes great
with animals even moose and
bear but hes never had to
share me with another four-
legged creature. Not fulltime
anyway. But knowing him as I
do I believed hed be fine with
it. And hes been nothing but
patient and understanding and
kind from the very beginning.
When Will first came to live
with us I wondered why he was
still alive. Thats how
unhealthy he was. I wondered
out loud in conversations with
our vet Christine OConnell
how long I should keep him
alive before relieving him of his
misery. For miserable he was.
And who wouldnt be? Live
with a family for the entirety of
your life and when you are blind
and deaf and in such pain all
you want to do is bite someone
when they try to touch you,
abandoned in place where you
are behind bars, unfamiliar with
your surroundings, quite fright-
ened, and left to die. It had to be
overwhelming for him. Just the
thought of such despair crushes
me even today.
The only reason we took Will in
was to give him a place to die in
dignity. He deserved that. We
all do. But a funny thing hap-
pened that first month. He
didnt die. Nor did he die the
second or third month. And
now it has been five months and
Will is not only alive, hes thriv-
ing. Hes happy, self-assured,
and hes learned to trust again.
There are not many people who
could go through what he has
and come out half as well.
Before I saw Will, I thought it
would be great if we could get
him up a mountain with us. But
he was in no condition to do
that. However, over time his
hips have come back a bit. He
now lets me massage them,
something that would have
elicited a bite from him in the
past. And while he will never
be able to walk up a mountain
he may be ready to sit in a back-
pack. Tomorrow morning, well
head to Eastern Mountain
Sports to see if he feels comfort-
able sitting in one. If all goes
well, the following day my two
best friends will lead Will and I
up a mountain.
Over the last five months Will
has developed quite a fan club.
His story resonates with many
folks who gain strength from his
resilience and understand that if
it wasnt too late for him to love,
and be loved, and to live, then
its not too late for them to have
those gifts as well.
Five months ago, a little blind
dog was left to die alone in a
shelter. This weekend he could
be sitting on top of a mountain,
loved, and adored. Some moun-
tains take five months to climb,
some journeys take a lifetime,
and Will reminds us that its
never too late to find your way
home.

One impact of the Affordable
Care Act
Accusations about what candi-
dates Romney/Ryan and
Obama/Biden plans are for
Medicare are flying fast and
furious across the battle lines of
this brutal and dishonest cam-
paign season. I thought it might
be advantageous to the voter to
find out the real facts about the
ACA and what we do know
about our futures as laid out by
the existing law.
On July 24, 2012, the
Congressional Budget Office
(CBO) released an updated
analysis of the Medicare pay-
ment reductions included in the
Affordable Care Act (ACA).1
Notably, this updated CBO esti-
mate represents the first time
that the Medicare payment
reductions are accounted for in
the full 10year budget window.
Totaling an estimated $716 bil-
lion between 2013 and 2022, the
Medicare payment reductions
comprise a majority of the
Affordable Care Acts budgetary
savings. (Source: Medical
Industry Leadership Institute).
The numbers are staggering and
the impact to New Hampshire is
immense. Over the course of the
next ten years the following is
the projected and verified num-
bers on the impact to our State
and Grafton County by the
CBO.
New Hampshires Medicare
reimbursements will decrease
19.54 million in 2013 and there-
after 100 million to 445 million
in additional cuts every year are
planned until 2022. This repre-
sents a total of 2.2 billion dol-
lars versus our reimbursements
in 2012. In Grafton County
alone, the cuts will total 1.4 mil-
lion in 2013 and average 15
million more each and every
year until 2022 for a total of 154
million in cuts.
Lets step back for a minute and
ask why the ACA became law.
The 2009 Congress believed
they owned a mandate to enact
this legislation as a result of the
2008 elections; so they pro-
posed a plan to provide health
care to 30 million residents (not
necessarily American citizens).
Using a number of legislative
tricks and tactics, they passed
the ACA now commonly
referred to as ObamaCare. This
wildly unpopular legislation
was gaveled into approval by
our own Senator Shaheen on
Christmas Eve 2009. At the
time of its passage we were told
that we had to pass it to see
what is in it. Fine, now we
have seen what is in it, and can
access its impact on the Nation
and specifically the retired resi-
dents of the State of New
Hampshire.
Under the terms of the program
the State is required to pay the
full benefits and COLA increas-
es as outlined in the current
Medicare law. How do you
think this money will be made
up for? You guessed it!
Property taxes will increase
exponentially to pay for our
seniors benefits under the pro-
gram. Guess who will also have
to pay additional taxes to pro-
vide heath care for those 30 mil-
lion uninsured? You guessed it
again! The same seniors who
are being scared into voting
against the Romney/Ryan plan
because of its impact to seniors.
The so called Ryan plan that is
being attacked by the
Progressives is nothing more
than the plan proposed by the
Presidents own Debt
Commission and its co-chair-
men Erskine Bowles (D) and
Alan Simpson (R).
Under the plan, the monies
would be restored to the States
while maintaining the benefits
and COLA increases to the ben-
eficiaries. The big difference,
which in my opinion is a great
idea, is that current payees fifty
five years or younger have the
CHOICE of remaining with the
current Medicare program or
moving into a market based
medical savings account for
their use when they retire. If I
had the choice it would be the
market based account for me!
The Feds have shown absolutely
no ability or inclination to prop-
erly manage any national pro-
gram, especially Medicare or
Social Security.
Does this information help
make things any clearer for you
on the Medi-Scare debate? It
sure did for me.

Dear North Country News,
You had a letter on September
14, about reducing the deficit.
Taxing people that make too
much money. The example given
was this. The poor making
$100,000.00 pays $8926.00 or
8.9 % of their income. The rich
making $250,000.00 pays
$40,000.00 or 16 % of their
income. The filthy rich making
$2,000,000.00 pays
$525,000.00 or 26 % of their
income.
Talk about warped thinking.
Why start a business? Why try
to get ahead and make some-
thing for yourself in this life?
Why does somebody making
more money than you, makes
you want them to be taxed
more? Shoot, it wouldn't go
towards the deficit. They'd just
spend it. You aren't going to tax
your self out of this deficit. And
definitely not by punishing my
employer who thinks he's most
likely paying enough. Not only
that, but "your" president is in
office right now and he's spent
more than all other presidents
combined in his four years. He
had help with congress, but he
owned the house before the last
midterm elections and he puts
through what he wants anyway.
Get a life and quit whining over
the rich and filthy rich not
paying their fair share. Your
analysis speaks for itself. You
want to be fair, it should be a
flat tax for everyone period. You
want to get the deficit down;
government needs to stop
spending and start getting
unemployment down so we have
more people in the work force
paying taxes.

Vote for Good Government:
Vote Senator Jeanie Forrester
Two years ago I supported
Jeanie Forrester for District 2
State Senator and I must confess
it was one of the best decisions
Ive made.
Senator Forrester has been one
of the best constituent represen-
tatives we have had and she
truly serves all the people in
District 2. She is hard working
and a well respected leader in
Concord and serves on the
important the Senate Finance
Committee and is Vice Chair of
the Public & Municipal Affairs
Committee.
The Senator also serves on
many other important
Commissions, Committees and
Boards. One of those boards is
the Current Use Advisory Board
(CUAB) where she has spent a
great deal of time learning how
important Current Use is to the
Forest Industry, as well as to Ag
and Forest Landowners in
District 2. She also recognizes
that this has a positive impact
on recreation activities such as
hunting, fishing and snowmobil-
ing.
She has worked on many bills
over the past two years for New
Hampshire citizens. I would like
to share two of many that were
signed into law: 1). House Bill
648 which protects private
property owners from a taking
of their land by Eminent
Domain. 2). Senate Bill 382
which sets up a procedure for
the towns to prorate your tax
bill on a home that was
destroyed by fire or natural dis-
aster. The NH tax year is April
1st to March 31st. Prior to this
bill being passed (Senator
Forrester introduced SB 328), if
your home was destroyed you
still had to pay property taxes
until the end of the tax year.
Hard to believe that anyone
would have to pay taxes on
nothing more than a burned out
cellar hole but it was happening
and Senator Forrester corrected
this problem for our citizens.
Please join me in voting for
Good Government by re-
electing Senator Jeanie
Forrester on Nov. 6, 2012.
Thank you,
Tom Thomson

While. . .
Gasoline prices sharply rising,
housing markets underwater,
food prices doubling overnight
and inflation of the dollar is
going to explode. All this tran-
spiring, as tens of thousands of
innocent civilians, including
women and children, are being
slaughtered by radical govern-
ments around the world, includ-
ing our U.S. Ambassador and
his aides who were mercilessly
murdered and their bodies
dragged through the streets.
While Rome burns . . . the
Little Caesar Barack dithers
and bows to our enemies.
An empty chair waits for the
leader of the free world, Barack
Hussein Obama to be pre-
sent. But, Obamas narcissistic
personality disorder deeply pos-
sesses him to constantly seek
attention and admiration while
taking advantage of other peo-
ple to achieve his own goals.
Unashamedly, he disregards the
feelings of others, because of
lack of his own ability to feel
empathy.
And still, While Rome burns . .
. the Little Caesar Barack,
again, dithers and apologizes to
our enemies, for our exceptional
freedoms.
Barack Hussein Obama deftly
uses his war with words regard-
less of the hypocrisy he exhibits,
as a tool with the purpose to
intimidate and end a debate by
placing restrictions on what we
can say and how we say it, and
to restrict debate and silence
opposition of the American pub-
lic.
While Rome swiftly burns to
the ground . . . the Little Caesar
Barack dithers and waits for
his reward for helping to col-
lapse the Shining City on the
Hill.
But, We the People are Coming,
and we will take back our coun-
try. This is our America, we did
build that, and we will fight to
protect and defend the greatest
nation on earth.

As a small business owner I
know that NH women face a
least, or maybe more, of the
same economic struggles as
men do these days.
For me, the stimulus plan has
not fixed our economy and that
failure has increased the burden
on women and men as well as
every small business in the
North Country.
The borrowing of money to
cover the cost of the stimulus
has increased our debt and that
debt will be left for our children
and grandchildren to pay. Will
they really be able to do that?
Congressman Charlie Bass has
supported the North Country for
many years. He rejects the
notion that we should continue
to borrow money to increase
spending. He supports a budget
based on the bipartisan
Simpson-Bowles commission,
which would reduce the deficit
by $4,000,000,000 over the next
ten years. He also supports
inter-state sales of health insur-
ance, medical savings accounts,
portability and deductibility of
health care insurance premium,
which all are designed to reduce
the health care costs for me and
my business.
Charlie is a co-sponsor of the
Violence Against Women Health
Initiative Act, which will help
doctors and other health care
workers to respond to domestic
and sexual violence against
women. I also strongly support
that effort.
This is why as a woman, a moth-
er, and a grandmother I support
Charlie Bass for Congress and I
hope that others in the North
Country will do the same.

Just a short one this week folks!
Too many other letters have
been sent in and we need room
for them!
Just two things this time around
and Ill keep it simple!
First - to all those people who
gave me grief when I was com-
plaining about the fuel prices
going up because of Hurricane
Isaac. Ill say it to those people
now - I told you so!
Ihad posted on my Facebook
page that Iwas angered at the
price jump in gas back at the
end of August during Hurricane
Isaac. Istated that because they
had to take people from the few
oil rigs during the hurricane,
that gas prices would jump.
Several people jumped on me
because they stated that it was
very costly to evacuate the oil
rigs and that it wouldnt have
too much of an affect on fuel
prices if it was only for a day or
two.
Guess what? Here it is going on
two months later and the gas
prices have yet to drop! In fact,
they are still going up.
Iknow the people are back
working on the rigs, I know that
the fuel companies are still mak-
ing profits, so....... plain and
simple, when do the fuel prices
drop back down? Id hate to see
an avacuation from a few rigs
for months. Wed be paying for
fuel in gold bullion! Give me a
break!!! Billions in profits and
the price of a barrel goes up.
Greed!
Secondly - enough with the darn
political calls already! We
received one after 9pm the other
evening. We asked which candi-
date he was working for as I
wouldnt vote for that one! He
hung up. Nice. From now on, a
full blown air horn to the phone!
See you next issue!
Nobody Really Asked, Just My
Opinion!
~BEF
Social Security is a vital pro-
gram that ensures that seniors
can live a secure and comfort-
able retirement. This fund,
which everyone who has ever
held a job has paid into, is in
danger of running dry. There is
not a high enough worker-to-
retiree ratio.
At the creation of Social
Security there were 159 workers
to every retiree, today there are
3 workers to every retiree. In
2010 the program paid out more
money than it brought in for the
first time in history. This is not
sustainable, and it is not fair for
the workers who have paid into
the program for their entire
lives.
Charlie Bass understands this
and is willing to work within his
party and across the aisle to
find a permanent solution to this
problem.
Seniors need Charlie Bass in
Congress. If you want real solu-
tions then I urge you to vote for
Charlie Bass on November 6. I
know I will.
Thank you,

We strongly support Bob Lamb
for election to the New
Hampshire State Senate in
District 2, because our district
needs a leader who will truly
work for the people of our State,
and not against us.
Our current State Legislators
congratulate themselves for
reducing State spending, but
dont acknowledge that this
results in increased costs to our
towns and school districts.
Besides the obvious examples of
reduced funding to public
schools and the elimination of
shared revenues, one example
that has impacted every town in
the State is the decision to cut
funding to mental health servic-
es in New Hampshire, which has
led to the closure of facilities
across the state and the dis-
charge of patients who pose a
risk to themselves and to others.
Senator Jeanie Forrester voted
in favor of this decision. Let us
outline the consequences to
towns across our state:
A patient with severe mental &
emotional illness is released
from the hospital, has no family
in the area and no group home
to go to. She stops taking her
medication, and creates enor-
mous burdens on the Towns
Welfare Department, Police
Department, Emergency
Medical Service, and Town
Hall, as well as various non-
profit service agencies. She has
substance abuse and behavioral
problems so severe as to not be
allowed in the homeless shelter,
and would present a danger to
people and property if she were
placed in a local motel.
Police Department records
show numerous police contacts
resulting from citizen com-
plaints, but no criminal charges
result. The former patient is
repeatedly hospitalized and
repeats the same patterns of
behavior.
This is not a hypothetical situa-
tion; it is a reality that we have
seen in many of our towns.
Towns lack the resources--
financial and otherwise--to con-
tinue to deal with such individu-
als. Without direct and constant
supervision, they stop taking
their medication and return to
substance abuse.
Unfortunately, our towns have
no recourse but to keep trying,
because our legislature has
taken away any other options,
and we cannot just leave these
people to fend for themselves.
Ultimately, the increased cost to
the towns of the legislators
decision will be increased costs
to property taxpayers.
Bob Lamb understands down-
shifting, he sees the impact deci-
sions at the State level have on
our towns, and he holds the
American value of responsibility
to one another. He has proven
experience in dealing with com-
plex budgets that will enable
him to make funding decisions
that are in the best interest of
New Hampshire and its citizens.
Please join us in supporting
Bob Lamb for Senate District 2.

"Inspiring healthy choices For life"
Dear EarthTalk: What is the
scientific consensus on all the
extreme weather weve been
havingfrom monster torna-
does to massive floods and
wildfires? Is there a clear con-
nection to climate change? And
if so what are we doing to be
prepared?
-- Jason Devine, Summit, PA
Extreme weather does not prove
the existence of global warm-
ing, but climate change is likely
to exaggerate itby messing
with ocean currents, providing
extra heat to forming tornadoes,
bolstering heat waves, lengthen-
ing droughts and causing more
precipitation and flooding.
A changing climate leads to
changes in the frequency, inten-
sity, spatial extent, duration and
timing of extreme weather and
climate events, and can result in
unprecedented extreme weather
and climate events, reports the
Intergovernmental Panel on
Climate Change (IPCC), an
independent group of leading
climate scientists convened by
the United Nations to provide
the world with a clear scientific
view on the current state of
knowledge in climate change
and its potential environmental
and socio-economic impacts.
While most scientists dont dis-
pute the link between global
warming and extreme weather,
the once skeptical public is now
starting to come aroundespe-
cially following 2011, when
floods, droughts, heat waves
and tornadoes took a heavy toll
on the U.S. According to a poll
conducted by researchers at
Yale Universitys Project on
Climate Change
Communication, four out of five
Americans reported personally
experiencing one or more types
of extreme weather or a natural
disaster in 2011, while more
than a third were personally
harmed either a great deal or a
moderate amount by one or
more of these events. And a
large majority of Americans
believe that global warming
made several high profile
extreme weather events worse,
including record high summer
temperatures nationwide,
droughts in Texas and
Oklahoma, catastrophic
Mississippi River flooding,
Hurricane Irene and an unusual-
ly warm winter.
The IPCC wants world leaders
to err on the side of caution in
preparing their citizens for
extreme weather events that will
likely become more frequent;
earlier this year they released a
report entitled Managing the
Risks of Extreme Events and
Disasters to Advance Climate
Change Adaptation to help
policymakers do just that. The
report is considered a must read
in coastal, arid and other espe-
cially vulnerable areas.
As for the U.S. government, the
National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) tracks weather and
storms, while the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) deals with the
impacts of extreme weather and
other disasters. But critics
would like to see Congress and
the White House do more to
increase Americans prepared-
ness. The U.S. [in 2011] expe-
rienced a record fourteen weath-
er-related disasters each in
excess of a billion dollarsand
many more disasters of lesser
magnitudes, reports the non-
profit Climate Science Watch
(CSW). Yet the U.S. has no
national climate change pre-
paredness strategy; and Federal
efforts to address the rising risks
have been undermined through
budget cuts and other means.
CSW and others are calling for
the creation of a new cabinet-
level agency called the National
Climate Service to oversee both
climate change mitigation as
well as preparedness for
increasingly extreme weather
events.

Speaking For Wildlife Presentation______
Wentworth Elementary School Attends Annual Cultural Event
Wentworth students in grades 4, 5 & 6 were invited to the 36th Annual NH Highland Games and
Scottish Festival held at Loon Mountain. This is the schools 6th time attending the festival.
Principal Keith Charpentier was thrilled to be invited back to this event. This is an extraordinary
opportunity for our students to have the exposure to such a wonderful cultural festival. He went
on to share, Pat Andrus and the other organizers of the school program do an outstanding job
exposing our students to the Scottish Heritage.
The NH Scottish games, established in 1975, are recognized as one of the finest Scottish Cultural
Festivals in the world. Celtic and Gaelic Culture is celebrated over the three days with competi-
tions ranging from Highland dancing, piping and drumming, heavyweight Scottish athletics as well
as sheep dog trials.
Students listened to a Scottish Bagpipe Band, watched a sheepherding contest, and attempted to
lift and throw Scottish stones. Students also learned how to play the harp and were given Scottish
Highland passports to tour the Clans and learn about the different families.
If you have not had the opportunity to attend these games, I strongly recommend you do so next
year, stated Mr. Charpentier.

The Pasquaney Garden Club of
Bristol invites you to a special
evening meeting and presenta-
tion Speaking for Wildlife. The
meeting will take place
Tuesday, October 16, 2012, 7:00
PM at the Masonic Hall,
Pleasant Street, Bristol, NH.
This meeting is open to our
guests and the general public at
no charge. Refreshments will be
served.
The focus of the presentation
will be on a new book The
Nature of New Hampshire:
Natural Communities and the
Granite State. The speakers are
Lou and Marilyn Lieto who
spent forty-five years working,
living and travelling around the
USA before choosing New
Hampshire as the most won-
derful place in which to live.
After moving to rural Grafton
County in 2006, Lou became a
COVERTS cooperator and both
he and Marilyn embarked on an
extensive education and man-
agement program to benefit our
land for the conservation of its
forests and natural communi-
ties. This program is supported
by Speaking for Wildlife, a vol-
unteer project of UNH
Cooperative Extension, the NH
COVERTS Project, and NH
Fish & Game, with funding pro-
vided the NH Charitable
Foundation and the Davis
Environmental Foundation.
This will be a dazzling presenta-
tion, showcasing New
Hampshires natural beauty,
through the lens of NH Natural
Heritage Bureau ecologist/pho-
tographers Ben Kimball and
Dan Sperduto. Featuring photos
of rare and special plant com-
munities and habitats through-
out the state, youll learn new
ways to look at the natural land-
scape and find out places to visit
some of New Hampshires most
unique places. Presentation
introduces content and photos
from a new book, The Nature
of New Hampshire.
The Pasquaney Garden Club is
proud to be sponsoring this
exceptional program. The
Pasquaney Garden Club is a
member of the NH Federation
of Garden Clubs, district,
regional, and National GC, Inc.

The 3.29 Million Dollar Bio-mass Plant located at the Glencliff Home, in Glencliff, NH, was
dedicated on Friday, September 28th with (l-r) NH Health and Human Services Nick Toumpas,
Councilor Ray Burton, NH Commissioner Administrative Services Linda Lodgdon, State
Senator Jeanie Forrester, and Glencliff Superintendent Todd Bickford.
Debi Warner conducted a study
of North Country values, sur-
veying people in the Berlin area
this summer. Warner asked 100
participants what they like
about the North Country. I lis-
tened. What I heard was that
they love the North Country,
and they told me why. I wrote
down their answers and did an
analysis. Warner did this study
as a volunteer, looking to help
the North Country further along
in its economic recovery.
We now have measures of our
top North Country values that
can be used to match business
prospects with resources we
hold dear. We can prioritize
compatible business develop-
ment which can help us to build
our economy in ways that will
provide jobs and will be more
lasting over time because they
will fit well.
Warners study summarizes top
North Country resources as
reported by participants in sur-
veys this summer in the Berlin
area. The topmost resource was
the Mountains and forests
including the scenery, which
was named by two-thirds of the
sample of 100 responses. The
next resource, mentioned by
half of the participants was
People, including family and
roots along with the qualities of
being known, cared about, and
accepted here. The table shows
the top 10 valued resources of
the North Country.
Approximately one third of the
responses indicated the impor-
tance of Nature activities, with
and without motors; followed
by Quiet and Quality of life.
Other priorities mentioned in
the top ten were: local
Businesses and local produce;
Bodies of water; Seasons and
weather; Local History; a City
of pleasant character; and Air &
Water quality.
Warner, who is a candidate for
the NH Senate but conducted
the study outside of that role
says, This is great to have
measures of the value of these
resources to our people. We can
quantify the match-up of vari-
ous business ideas to the
resources we value and know
which ones we might prioritize
in our recruitment efforts and
incentives. Intending to assign
scores for the compatibility with
these values, Warner sees the
results can provide objective
criteria for compatibility with
North Country values.
Warner is now moving into the
second stage of the study, brain-
storming business ideas that are
compatible with these values
held dear. This step of the study
is underway, surveying people
at events, and also planning
focus groups in person, by
phone and online to generate
various business ideas that
could fit in the areas resource
profile. Anyone can join in this
stage, but will need to be open
minded generating ideas that
can later be evaluated for com-
patibility.
Warners project will also eval-
uate these various business
ideas in light of their market
value in the four markets:
External market, the Destination
market, the Local market and
the Drain market. When we
are done, we can have a catalog
of business ideas and their rela-
tive merit according to our cul-
tural values and also their effec-
tiveness in meeting our eco-
nomic needs. I am excited about
this project because it gives us
objective ways to develop our
economy in line with our
strongly held priorities we hold
in common.

cussion, can email

North Haverhill Company Reaches For New Heights

Kevin Harvick Sure
Could Use a Win
The good news is that Kevin
Harvick managed to make the
Chase for the Sprint Cup for the
sixth time in the past seven sea-
sons.
The bad news is that, so far,
Harvick hasn't managed to win
a race. He finished 11th in the
second installment of
NASCAR's race-offs and is
already 31 points off Jimmie
Johnson's pace.
Richard Childress Racing,
where Harvick competes along-
side Jeff Burton and Paul
Menard, is winless, though the
organization has prospered in
the Nationwide and Camping
World Truck series. RCR last
went winless at the Cup level in
2009. The team has been stuck
on 100 Sprint Cup victories all
year. Harvick won four times in
2011.
Twice this season Harvick has
finished second, the most recent
runner-up showing occurring at
Dover International Speedway,
the next stop on the Cup sched-
ule.
"I think for us we need to make
our cars better," Harvick said.
"We need to get faster."
Duh.
"We have been fortunate to be in
the position that we are in,
points-wise. You've got to kind
of balance that with trying to get
better and also trying to protect
what you've got."
Harvick, 36, has a knack for
consistency. In the past three
weeks, the Bakersfield, Calif.,
native has finished 10th, 12th
and 11th. In fact, he's finished in
a range of 10th to 16th in eight
of the past nine races. The
exception was a fifth at Atlanta
on Labor Day weekend. It's not
the kind of consistency Harvick
has in mind.
The RCR operation finds itself
playing catch-up in the Chase,
which isn't a good place to be.
"I don't think there is really one
specific thing that you can put
your finger on to say this is what
we are doing," Harvick said. "I
think it's a lot of things that need
to get better. Everybody is
working on them. We didn't cap-
italize on the situations that we
were in to win races at the
beginning of the year.
Performance hasn't been exactly
where we needed to be.
Everybody is working hard to
try to get it to that point.
Hopefully, we can do that." At
this late point, it's a hard feat to
accomplish.

A North Haverhill company
specializing in custom engi-
neered wire and cable applica-
tions made valuable connec-
tions at an aerospace tradeshow
this week, which he is confident
will lead to new orders and
more export opportunities.
Jeff Stimson of Orion Wire was
part of the New Hampshire del-
egation attending the Aero
Montreal Global Supply Chain
Summit on Sept. 27-28, which
included Gov. John Lynch,
Department of Resources and
Economic Development
Commissioner George Bald and
four other companies.
The summit brings together
aerospace companies from
around the world, providing
opportunities for networking
and developing relationships
that lead to new business for
those that are able to supply the
manufacturers of aircraft.
We probably would not have
been able to get our foot in the
door and I dont think we would
ever meet the same level of peo-
ple on our own, Stimson said.
Working with the states
Division of Economic
Development and its
International Trade Resource
Center, Stimson was able to
arrange meetings with compa-
nies he may not have been able
to arrange on his own. The
result, he said, is encouraging.
I had an appointment with a
company that is looking to out-
source some of its 50 cable
designs, so this would be a huge
opportunity, he said.
The trade mission to the aero-
space summit was underwritten
by the State Trade and Export
Promotion grant. New
Hampshire is receiving nearly
$300,000 in the second year of
the program, which is adminis-
tered by the Small Business
Administration.
New Hampshire was the only
New England state represented
at the aerospace summit, said
Christopher Way, interim direc-
tor of the Division of Economic
Development.
Its extremely beneficial for us
and our companies, who are get-
ting to meet with some prime
contractors, he said. A lot of
them will make connections,
they will get new business and it
will lead to new jobs.
For more information about
opportunities for market
research and other information
of exporting, contact the
International Trade Resource
Center at 603-271-8444 or visit

This week I will be addressing
more of your questions, I hope
these answers are helpful.
Q: My computer has 1 GB
memory installed if I add more
memory will it speed it up?
A: The amount of memory a
computer uses is based on the
operating system and the soft-
ware application you are using.
The most speed you will see
from a computer is when you go
from 256 MB of memory to 512
MB; you will get an increase in
speed. The operating system
will use what it needs for mem-
ory; if you are doing memory
intensive work like video edit-
ing you will see an increase of
performance. Keep in mind how
much memory the operating
system can address, Windows
XP or Vista, Windows 7 32 bit
versions can only see up to 4
GB of memory, however
Windows Vista and Windows 7
64 bit versions can take advan-
tage of much more memory it
can go up to 128 GB.
Q: My computer has a Dual
Core processor, why isnt it
faster than a single core proces-
sor?
A: There are basically three
types of computer processors on
the market, the old single core
which is one processor on a sin-
gle die, dual core that is two
processors on a single die and
quad core which is four proces-
sors between two dies on a sin-
gle chip. The more processors
your computer has the more
computing power and the more
tasks it can do. To see the power
of your computer you will have
to stress out the processor, run
several programs at the same
time, when one processor is
busy the other will take over the
task. Some video editing pro-
grams are tuned to run better on
dual core or quad core proces-
sors, doing a single program
like word processor you are not
taking the full advantage of the
dual core processor.
Q: I am interested in buying a
new Netbook, is it the same as a
laptop?
A: A Netbook is basically a ver-
sion of the old electronic PIMs
Personnel Information Manager
that was popular in the late 80s
early 90s. The operating system
is either Linux or Windows XP,
it has either a flash hard drive up
to 16 GB or a standard drive up
to 120 GB, of course the larger
the drive you are going to pay
more. The display screen is
from 8 to 13 inches and the
weigh around 2 lbs. They are
designed to go on the internet
and check email, if you wish to
install programs you will have
to buy and external CD/DVD
Drive that is sold separately.
They are not very good for gam-
ing, however they are handy if
you are near a wireless hot spot
and you want to go on the inter-
net or check your email. Todays
prices you can buy a tablet for
under $100.00 that will do much
what a netbook can do. Printing
may be a issue but it is possible
if you have a Google Account
and use Google Chrome
Browser you can printer from
the tablet to the internet to your
local printer this is also possible
if you own an Apple Ipad.
Q: My computer has Windows
7 I want to run Windows in Safe
Mode to scan for viruses and
malware but when I start my
computer and press F8 before
windows start to load I do not
get a Boot Menu so how can I
run Windows 7 in Safe Mode.
A: When you start Windows
after it boots to the desktop click
on start on Search program files
type MSCONFIG you will see
msconfig.exe on the list left
click with the mouse it will run
click on Boot Tab and click on
the box next to Safe Boot and
say Apply, when you restart
your computer it will then start
in Safe Mode, you will have to
go back into MSCONFIG and
uncheck the box to restart in
Normal Mode.
Be Advised: Should you
receive a telephone call from a
company claiming that your
computer is infected with virus-
es and it needs to be repaired,
take WARNING IT IS A
SCAM, they will charge you
$169.99 for nothing and steal
your personal information.
Common sense shall prevail,
one, how do they know you
have a computer, and if you do
how do they know if it is a Mac
or PC, Also how can they moni-
tor your computer unless they
are in it illegally. They will
threaten you to pay for them to
fix it do not be intimidated tell
them you are going to take your
computer to your local shop to
have it checked out then hang
up. This happened to a customer
this past week she was smart
and hung up on them, they tried
calling her again but she ignored
their calls. If you did do as they
say and paid them call your
bank to cancel your credit card
as soon as possible!
I hope this information is help-
ful, again if you have any ques-
tions please email me at
paigecs@gmail.com. Or you
may visit my website at
www.paigecomputerservices.co
m. You may also call me at the
shop (603)747-2201. So until
next time Happy Computing!

Arsenic and Old Lace
Syndrome and Food
Labeling
This weeks news report of
arsenic in rice has all the ear-
marks of fuzzy research that
will likely be used in the cam-
paign to prohibit food labeling.
Heres why.
1. There are presently no guide-
lines in the US for the maximum
limit for organic and inorganic
arsenic levels in food products.
2. The report analyzed 65 prod-
ucts of uncooked rice and rice
containing foods and beverages
purchased in April, May, and
August of 2012. They then took
3 or more samples from each for
their report and came up with
the magical number of 233 that
makes it look like a more com-
prehensive study.
If Agribusiness corportations
can get people riled up about
arsenic that is supposedly from
pesticides in addition to what
naturally occurs in the soil, we
can expect them to muddy up
the drive to label foods GMO
(information readily available)
with scare tactics toward an
industry they would love to
dominate by drumming up an
arsenic report (information sus-
pect with too many variables.)
Arsenic doesnt all come in the
calculated dose of white arsenic
we watched added to meals that
murdered folks in the movie,
Arsenic and Old Lace. Those
of us who still make applesauce
the old way boil up whole
apples (arsenic containing seeds
and all) in the pot before putting
the cooked apples through a
sieve or food mill. Arsenic has
also been used successfully for
years in Homeopathic remedies
in minute controlled doses.
What this kind of report leaves
out is the fact that the signs
given for arsenic poisoning may
also stem from an entirely dif-
ferent problem. Sugar still heads
the list of current chemicals that
are grossly over consumed to
the point of becoming a poison
that sometimes kills in the form
of obesity and diabetes. In terms
of additional public cost, our
theatre seats have had to be
enlarged at great cost, grocery
aisles widened to accommodate
go carts, and more. Yet our obe-
sity/cardiac/diabetes problem
has been spawned by the
Agribusiness, Food, and Drug
companies with full cooperation
from the FDA.
Significantly, after rBGH was
given to cows to increase milk
production, young women and
men began to develop huge
breasts. Breast reduction sur-
gery continues to thrive in order
to deal with the back problems
resulting from such pendulous
breasts in addition to psycho-
logical problems and physical
limitations. Once a couple of
milk companies decided to go
rBGH free and label their con-
tainers, people stopped buying
rBGH milk. Now, more milk
companies have gotten the mes-
sage and are labeling their prod-
uct rBGH free.
The bottom line here continues
to be choice. It is clear that once
food is labeled GMO, people
will choose not to buy it. We can
expect reams of research reports
coming out in favor of GMO
foods only because the multina-
tional agribusinesses are fund-
ing selectively sloppy research
by academic researchers who
have sold out to them. No cor-
poration or group of corpora-
tions should have the authority
to decide how much informa-
tion will be made available to
us, you and me, in this informa-
tion age.
Time to keep a wary eye peeled
and speak up for our right to
choose. This is just one right
among many that we need to
claim, which is why townspeo-
ple throughout the US are gath-
ering in their towns to form and
pass Rights Based Ordinances
for sustainable energy, water
and food systems. For more
information, check out the Web
at www.celdf.org.
Note: Arsenic in drinking water
is another story. The FDA does
have a maximum limit guideline
of 10 ppb (parts per billion) of
arsenic for drinking water. To
date, the American Cancer
Society states that Albuquerque,
NM is the only urban area in the
US with substantial natural con-
centrations of arsenic in the
drinking water. The West has to
keep a closer eye peeled
because so much of their water
comes from ground sources,
which we know are grossly con-
taminated from agricultural pes-
ticide runoff.

Down a Dirt Road
This is both an introduction and
a goodbye.
For almost three years, I have
written for and from D Acres
Farm in Dorchester, NH. Tales
of farm endeavors, animal
adventures, garden lessons, sea-
sonal projects: the color of the
months was writ through the
stories I shared in these pages.
Now, as autumn descends and
the transition to winter is
engaged, a transition in my own
life is taking place.
And so Id like to offer a good-
bye to D Acres - to the people,
the animals, the work, the
rhythms of our weeks, and the
community that created such an
exciting and motivating envi-
ronment in which to live. It is
with tremendous gratitude for
the skills and lessons learned,
and the growth and maturation
undergone, that I depart from
my work and my silo home at
the farm.
Fresh opportunities, however,
have changed my course and
offer a new present, suggesting
a different future. The next
adventure has arrived.
Mind you, Im only a mile and a
half further down the road.
Just around a couple of bends
from the farm is Cosauke (coo-
ah-sic, Place of the Pines), the
site of my current homesteading
endeavor.
Its not just me who you can
find there, though. No, the tales
that will fill this column from
this point forward are also the
tales of my partner Ryan, and
our dog Mica. Together we
three are carving a life out of the
woods.
Let me set the scene. A third of
a mile down an old class VI
road, driveable by truck or a car
with little to lose, you can go no
further. A path through the
woods, smelling of duff, leads
to a clearing. A platform there,
previously home to a yurt, is
now the site of our tent encamp-
ment. Next door is a fine little
privy.
The tent, complete with bed,
bureau, and metal food storage
box, is a passing phase. Keep
walking past the raspberry
patch, under the pines, and
youll find yourself in another
clearing. Alongside the 1800s-
era cellar hole of the old
Jessaman place is a garden (dis-
playing the last of this years
carrots, beets, kale, cabbage,
mint, cutting celery, & thyme),
then some old apple trees, and a
cabin. Almost.
Being built log by log, it is our
home to be. Each log, cut from
the property, has been carried,
peeled, and shaped to take its
place precisely where it is
stacked. What stands is a testa-
ment to the hours Ryan has ded-
icated with each free moment.
And just beyond the cabin,
through the woods, is the South
Branch of the Baker River, its
melody our constant accompa-
niment. With a little imagina-
tion, you can surely envision it.
Welcome to our world. Im
looking forward to the stories,
work, and adventures with
which it will be filled.

Butter Churn
Q: Earlier this year, I went to a
farm auction in West Texas,
where I purchased a Daizy
brand butter churn and six
crocks of various sizes. I would
like to know what they are
worth. -- Bill, Clarksville, Tenn.
A: The Daizy churn might be
worth about $75 if it is in decent
condition. The value of the
crocks would depend on size,
manufacturer and condition.

Q: I have a tumbler that was
made with Pittsburgh Glass. I
have been told that it is quite
early. I love the tumbler and
want to learn more about this
type of glass. -- Susan,
Naperville, Ill.
A: According to the 20th edition
of Schroeder's Antiques Price
Guide, window glass and hol-
low ware were being produced
in the Pittsburgh area as early as
1797. Coal was used instead of
wood to fire the large glass fur-
naces. At one time, more than
150 glass companies flourished
in the region. During the
Victorian era, dozens of free-
blown, pattern-molded and flint
glass were produced. I suspect
your tumbler was probably
made sometime during the late
19th to early 20th centuries.
***
Q: I recently inherited a teapot
and several serving pieces in the
Tea Leaf pattern. I like the sim-
plicity of the design, and I
would like to find more about it.
-- Betty, Naperville, Ill.
A: Tea Leaf china was one of
the most popular patterns to be
carried west during the
American expansion of the
post-Civil War period. This
durable stoneware was perfect
for the rough and tumble West
and has remained popular with
collectors for more than 150
years. One of the best sources is
the Tea Leaf Club International,
960 Bruden Road, Columbus,
OH 43205.

WEEK OF OCT. 15th
ARIES (March 21 to April 19)
You might feel compelled to get
involved on the "right side" of a
seemingly unfair fight. But
appearances can be deceptive.
Get the facts before going forth
into the fray.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)
Bullying others into agreeing
with your position could cause
resentment. Instead, persuade
them to join you by making
your case on a logical point-by-
point basis.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)
Resist pushing for a workplace
decision you might feel is long
overdue. Your impatience could
backfire. Meanwhile, focus on
that still-unsettled personal situ-
ation.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22)
Your aspects favor doing some-
thing different. You might
decide to redecorate your home,
or take a trip somewhere you've
never been, or even change your
hairstyle.
LEO (July 23 to August 22)
You might want to take a break
from your busy schedule to
restore your energy levels. Use
this less-hectic time to also
reassess your plans and make
needed changes.
VIRGO (August 23 to
September 22) What you like to
think of as determination might
be seen by others as nothing
more than stubbornness. Try to
be more flexible if you hope to
get things resolved.
LIBRA (September 23 to
October 22) Watch that you
don't unwittingly reveal work-
related information to the wrong
person. Best to say nothing until
you get official clearance to
open up.
SCORPIO (October 23 to
November 21) With things set-
tling down at work or at home,
you can now take on a new chal-
lenge without fear of distrac-
tion. Be open to helpful sugges-
tions from colleagues.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22
to December 21) Your creativity
can help resolve an emotional
situation that might otherwise
get out of hand. Continue to be
your usual caring, sensitive self.
CAPRICORN (December 22
to January 19) You could
impress a lot of influential peo-
ple with the way you untangle a
few knotty problems.
Meanwhile, a colleague is set to
share some welcome news.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to
February 18) Aspects favor
recharging your social life and
meeting new people. It's also a
good time to renew friendships
that might be stagnating due to
neglect on both sides.
PISCES (February 19 to March
20) Congratulations. Your talent
for working out a highly techni-
cal problem earns you well-
deserved praise. The weekend
could bring news about a friend
or relative.
BORN THIS WEEK: Your
sense of justice makes you a
strong advocate for the rights of
people and animals alike.
