Dale Clough Photo
A great picture of a Chipping Sparrow watching for insects to grab! During the breeding season, the female develops a bare
patch on her abdomen that fills with fluid. This allows more efficient transfer of heat to the eggs. The head pattern of the
Chipping Sparrow changes in fall and winter. Their nest is so flimsy that light can be seen through it. A group of Chipping
Sparrows are collectively known as a "tournament" of sparrows. - Duane Cross Photo. (www.duanecrosspics.com)

13th Annual Flags
On The 48
Memorial Hike______
On Sept. 14, 2013, the 13th
annual "Flags on the 48" memo-
rial hike to each of the 48 -
4,000+ foot summits in New
Hampshire, will take place in
memory of those who lost their
lives on September 11, 2001.
The first hike was an informal
and spontaneous memorial by a
group of six hikers moved by
the horrific and detailed images
of the attacks. They raised a
large American flag on the first
Saturday after the attacks from
the summit of Mount Liberty.
Story continues on page A3
Human encounters with black
bears have increased across the
White Mountain National
Forest. While many visitors and
campers never encounter a bear,
the Forest is their home and
bears can quickly become habit-
uated to human food. In the past
week, numerous incidents of
bears looking for food have
been reported by visitors at
Sugarloaf I and II, Hancock,
Campton, and Tripoli camp-
grounds, as well as along sever-
al trails on the Pemigewassett
Ranger District east of Interstate
93.Visitors are reporting that
bears have been seen rummag-
ing through coolers, crawling
into tents and underneath shel-
ters, and reaching food in
improperly hung storage bags.
When bears are successful in
obtaining food rewards, their
fear of people lesson.
It is vital that you keep a clean
campsite to ensure bears and
other animals dont forage for
your food. Be sure to properly
store all food, including drink
containers, condiments like
ketchup and mustard, and empty
food wrappers! Improperly
stored food not only attracts

The tribute has grown signifi-
cantly each year since it began
in 2001.
Now hundreds of hikers are
involved; from Boy Scout
troops and veterans groups to
the every-day hikers. They
make their way to the summits
before noon paying tribute by
flying the American flag for two
hours. With humble honor some
hikers share the photos of fami-
ly members and friends tragical-
ly lost, exchange stories of per-
sonal experiences, play peaceful
music and make quiet conversa-
tion with passing hikers. These
Americans are bonded in the
belief that taking to the moun-
tains in remembrances of those
who lost their lives continues to
bring some solace in the wake
of this atrocious violence.
Again this year, memorial hik-
ers will pay tribute to all who
lost their lives on September
11th 2001. Collectively impart-
ing sympathy and respect to the
families and loved one? who
still struggle with their grief.
OTHER INFORMATION:. For
those unable to hike a peak, you
can participate by accessing
peaks that are reached by a tram
or other mode of transportation.
Those peaks include: Mt.
Washington (New England's
highest at 6,288 feet), Cannon in
Franconia Notch, and Wildcat in
Pinkham Notch. Details on the
hike and its participants can be
found at www.flagsonthe48.org

tact@flagsonthe48.org, or by

Incessantly scouring the uni-
verse for the weird, the wacky,
and the stupid so you dont
have to.
(Its my column, and Ill write
what I want to! This weeks col-
umn is patterned after a typical
Internet experience. So, before
reading this weeks column, you
must first sign in with a pass-
word you have long forgotten.
Good, now you must first watch
a 30-second advertisement,
[which I dont have]. So, let me
just say Check out
www.bermansbits.com.)
Greetings, and thanks for join-
ing me for another week. First,
a Boston woman will need
reconstructive surgery after
another woman bit off her nose.
Deputies responded to a call
about a fight in a backyard and
found two women both drunk
(big surprise there). Police were
shocked when they noticed
ones nose was missing. Ive
seen all type of injuries, but Ive
never seen anyone with a nose
that had been bitten off. I have
never seen that type of injury
before. No sir, said Lt. Tim
Watkins. [WALB]
Open another window here to
check Facebook.
Next, the most intriguing head-
line of the week: An unusual
love story: Boy [formerly girl]
meets girl [formerly boy]....
(Bonus: runner-up headline of
the week: NH Woman Arrested
After Calling 911 And Asking
For A Pen. [Okay, okay, one
more: Boy told hes too fat for
f o o t b a l l ] . )
Time to check Facebook again.
Read that Obama is really from
Mars. Didnt Snope it as I
know its real!
Finally, potitics (or something)
makes strange budfellows. Now
that marijuana is legal in
Washington, theres not much
police wanted to explain the
new rules surrounding recre-
ational marijuana use in the
state and hit upon a novel
distribution format: Doritos (I
would have used Oreos). We
knew if we did leaflets, it would
turn into litter, police said. We
wanted people to be able to
access the information. Its actu-
ally fun to read. We wanted to
do it in a way that is deliberately
ironic. Each bag contained
some Dos and Donts. The
Donts included Dont drive
while high, and Dont use pot
in public. You could be cited but
wed rather give you a warn-
ing. And the Dos? Do listen to
Dark Side of the Moon at a
reasonable volume. (Again, I
interject: In-A-Gadda-Da-
Vida might suffice as well.)
The crowd ate it up! In less than
30 minutes, police ran out of all
1,000 bags of chips during
Hempfest. [WMUR]
Go to news site. Pop-up ad
here. (Getting married?
Consider using the services of
Dave Berman, Justice of the
Peace.) Checked him on Snopes
hes okay!
Buying American. I am think-
ing if manufacturing and real
jobs were ever actually returned
to America and everyone who
wanted to work could, the mili-
tary would be in big doo-doo.
(Anyone feel a draft in the
room?)
A New Zealand woman drove
overnight for about 200 miles
and sent texts as she wentbut
may have asleep the whole time.
The woman, who has a sleep
disorder, took sleeping pills and
drove away from her home,
Stuff (NZ) reports. Police
tracked her location by her cell
phone and found her slumped
over the wheel, asleep, in the
driveway of her old home in
another town. She awoke with
absolutely no recollection of
the events overnight, said
police.
There is hope for the future! I
have a young man doing some
work on the barn. At about 7:10
AM today he called to say he
was going to be late. For me,
thats a big deal! Manners! A
rarity today! Wowsers!
Is Nina Siahkali Moradi too
sexy for Iranian politics? The
27-year-old candidate won a
city council seat in the city of
Qazvin, but has been mysteri-
ously disqualified at the last
minute, the Independent reports.
A senior Qazvin official said
that we dont want a catwalk
model on the council, but a
human rights group argues that
Moradi was disqualified due to
non-observance of Islamic
codes, and notes that her pro-
youth campaign posters may
have aroused complaints from
conservative rivals. (Screen
freezes here for 20 seconds) A
city review board member says
that her 10,000 votes were nulli-
fied because the review board
did not approve her creden-
tials, yet Moradi says the board
never spoke to her. A legal
expert in Qazvin calls it a pre-
text, arguing that its illegal for
the review board to disqualify
her after the election.
Move to another news site.
Pop-up ad. (Use personalized
advertising specialties? I guar-
antee I can save you money.

A tip of the keyboard to the
good folks at Bond Auto in
Plymouth! Thanks for the recent
help! (I think they like me
there... sometimes.) Anytime
anyone can save me a few dol-
lars...! You guys ROCK!
(Screen freezes again.)
I had a thought the other day
(no, it wasnt lonely). With all
the dog breeds out there, when I
look at a dog, I still see a dog.
Its the same with horses
regardless of breed, they all still
look like horses to me. Why
cant more of us just do that
with people?
Pop-up ad. (Need a
writer/proofreader? Before your
copy is seen by the public, let
me look it over. Contact Dave
Berman.)

BATH PUBLIC LIBRARY
ANNOUNCES GRANT
AWARD
The Bath Public Library has
received a grant from the New
Hampshire Humanities Council
to present Steve Taylor, Cows
and Communities: How the
Lowly Bovine Has Nurtured
New Hampshire through Four
Centuries, Friday, September
13th, 2013 at 7:00 pm at the
Bath Village School.
Cattle were essential to the sur-
vival of the earliest New
Hampshire settlements, and
their contributions have been
central to the life and the culture
of the state ever since. From
providing human dietary suste-
nance to basic motive power for
agriculture, forestry, and trans-
port, bovines have had a deep
and enduring bond with their
keepers, one that lingers today
and is a vital part of the iconog-
raphy of rural New Hampshire,
even as dairy farming becomes
ever more reliant on intensive
modern science and technology.
Where are New Hampshires
cows today and what are they
doing? Steve Taylor provides
answers some will prove sur-
prising.
This program is free and open to
the public.
For more information, contact
the Bath Public Library at 747-
3372 or e-mail

bears to people currently camp-
ing at a site, but lets the bear
know that it can find food at that
campsite in the future. The bear
may return to the site when
other families are recreating
there.
Read the rules and signs about
bears posted at campgrounds
and trailheads, and follow the
instructions on how to properly
store food. Too many times, vis-
itors believe they have stored
their food safely, but in reality
have left it within a bears reach.
Free bear canister rentals are
available on a first-come, first-
served basis at all of our offices
and visitor centers.
Bears are meant to be wild and
feeding them creates negative
consequences for them. Bears
that get too used to people may
have to be trapped and relocated
or even killed. Remember, A
fed bear is a dead bear.
The feeding of bears, intentional
or unintentional, is prohibited
on the White Mountain National
Forest. Visitors who have not
properly stored their food risk
their own safety and receiving a
citation. Following safe food
storage practices protects both
you and the bears.
It is your responsibility to
ensure your safety and that of
future campers by not purpose-
fully or inadvertently feeding
bears. So remember:
Always keep a clean camp.
Dont leave any food (includ-
ing condiments) out when not in
use.
Store food in bear-resistant
units, hard-shelled vehicles or
car trunks.
Keep sleeping areas, tents, and
sleeping bags free of food and
odor (like toothpaste or deodor-
ant).
Dont sleep in clothes you
cooked or handled fish or game
in.
Never bury or burn food
waste.
If camping in the backcountry,
hang you food bag at least 10
feet off the ground and 5 feet
out from a tree limb that could
support a bear, or better yet pack
and use bear resistant contain-
ers.
If possible, in backcountry
areas, place sleeping tents at
least 100 yards away from food
storage and cooking areas.
For the most current informa-
tion over the weekend, call the
White Mountain Visitor Center,
Lincoln, NH at: 603.745-3816
between the hours of 9:00 am
and 3:30 pm. Information is also
available on informational
kiosks and from campground
hosts.
For more information on deal-
ing with black bears, visit the
New Hampshire Fish & Game
Department:wildnh.com.
For information on the White
Mountain National Forest, go to
www.fs.usda.gov/whitemoun-
tain.
The Pemi Fish and Game Club will host a family friendly, hunting
oriented 3-D archery shoots this fall at the club grounds at 295
Beede Road, Holderness, NH on September 8th.
Each will have two rounds of McKenzie 3-D targets in hunting sit-
uations, maximum 35 yards. There will be at least 18 targets pre-
sented on each round and you decide which ones to skip to get
your 15 scores ........ but you can't go back; the decision to skip a
target is final! A SHOOT THAT WILL BE AS LAID BACK
OR CHALLENGING AS YOU WANT IT TO BE -- A RELAX-
ING AND FUN TIME FOR ALL AGES!
Divisions for adults, age 10-15, and for age 9 and younger.
Recurve and compound classes
Registration will be from 7:00 til noon. The registration fee is
adults $15, two in a family $25, youth $10, family maximum, $30,
age 9 and under no fee.
Assistance in set-up will be greatly appreciated!

Hello friends of nature and wel-
come to this weeks edition of
Nature Tracks...
this week by... Marsha Downs
Sometimes the synchronicities
of life are lost to us, other times
they whack us over the head.
This story has a happy ending
due to simply looking where I
was putting my foot down in
front of me, and the timing of it
all. I was walking between my
car and the posts to the deck
above me when I looked down
before my next step and saw an
immature female hummingbird
lying in the grass. I saw she was
still alive, but why she was on
the ground was not obvious
until I picked her up. You
would think something so light
would be easy to pick up, but
she was stuck in the grass and I
had to literally pry her and tug a
bit to lift her. She lay in my
hand, breathing hard and I
thought she would die within
moments. I looked out to the
mountains and asked the
Universe to guide me in what to
do for her, to show me what was
best. She perked her head up
and I thought this little one is
determined to live. I got a milk
jug cap full of sugar water, hav-
ing made it ahead to feed the
hungry crew that frequent this
house. I saw her long, thin
tongue go out into the cap and
knew she wanted to live. Then
she jumped from my hand like a
kamikaze and landed on the
ground on her side. She
couldnt move from that posi-
tion. I picked her up gently and
lay her and the cap in the grass
in front of her. She decided she
was still thirsty. I had noticed
some spider web in her feathers
and tried pulling it out. Very
sticky and hard to remove. I
thought, this is the culprit of it
all.
Due to the birds determination,
I came in and called Catherine
Greenleaf of St. Francis Wild
Bird Hospital in Lyme, NH.
She told me to get a box, make
air holes in it, put a soft cloth in
the box and get her there as
quickly as possible, no air con-
ditioning, no music, no smok-
ing, and no peaking in the box -
just get her there.
The roads from here to Lyme
are windy, bumpy and slow. I
flew as fast as I could, wonder-
ing if the little bird being tossed
around in the box on the front
seat would survive the trip.
When I got there, I heard
scratching in the box, so knew
she was still with me. I handed
her over to Catherines husband
and looked up and saw the cres-
cent moon. It was a good sign,
I thought. I had come to the
right place.
The next day I called Catherine
and she said the bird made it
through the night, was still in
guarded condition, but was fly-
ing, though a bit crookedly. She
was feeding it a special solution
of electrolytes for humming-
birds and the tiny one was
enjoying it. Catherine was still
pulling spider webs out of her
feathers that were right up
against her skin. She wondered
if the bird had been bitten by the
spider, or if it was just the web
that was throwing the tiny bird
off. I told Catherine Id call in a
couple of days to see how things
were going.
I made the call two days later
and got a message back from
Catherine telling me that once
she had removed the spider web
from under the wings and
around the birds body, the hum-
mingbird was flying straight
and was able to be released the
day before and immediately
began enjoying the garden
around Catherines house,
which she said was a haven for
hummingbirds. Catherine
thanked me for bringing this lit-
tle one to her and said she was
one lucky bird.
A happy ending to a story that
could have ended much

Atticus taking in the setting sun from Chapel Rock on
Pine Mountain this past week.
Be scared. You cant help that.
But dont be afraid. Aint noth-
ing in the woods going to hurt
you unless you corner it, or it
smells that you are afraid. A
bear or a deer, too, has got to be
scared of a coward the same as a
brave man has got to be. ~
William Faulkner
The years have taught me many
things but one of the most
important is that change is
everywhere and we do our best
when we come to grips with it,
accept it, and then figure out
how to move forward in spite of
it.
Last night, walking through a
hot and humid last hour of day-
light along a dusty road, I was
watching Atticus. Hes now
halfway between eleven and
twelve. In comparison, that
makes him older than I am.
That thought had a tinge of
melancholy to it but not enough
to change the mood as we
huffed and puffed uphill while
the sun passed through the trees
to the west and we stopped often
to take drinks of water.
We were on our way to Pine
Mountain. Its an old friend to
us. And yet as many times as
weve been there, the road walk
is never as easy as I expect it to
be. It rises hundreds of feet in
elevation in one and a half
miles. Much like walking up a
ramp. At the top of the road
there sits the Horton Center, a
religious camp now closed for
the year, and a short trail to
Chapel Rock called A Pathway
to God. The first time I went to
Pine Mountain I had no idea
how stunning the views from
Chapel Rock were, but I took
that trail because the name
intrigued me. I mean who
wouldnt want a pathway to
God?
What I found was indeed a bit of
God. Before us was heaven (to
paraphrase Thoreau) both under
our feet and above our heads.
The wide sweeping valley south
through Pinkham Notch is epic
in the way it sprawls like a rich
carpet. Route 16, which can be
seen for a bit, is a mysterious
thread through the wilderness
promising new journeys, desti-
nations, and adventures. Above
and beyond, the wide panorama
arcs from the Carter-Moriah
Range down to the Wildcats.
Across the notch to where a bit
of Mount Washington can be
seen, but the view is predomi-
nated by a staggering and point-
ed nearby Mount Madison. Not
far away, in the shadow of
Madison, sits the main mass of
Pine Mountain. High atop
Chapel Rock the views carry
over to the west and north and to
the primordial Kilkenny Range.
Its a humble climb to a prolific
place, where I am always hum-
bled in relation to what God has
created.
Whenever Atticus and I sit on
that highest rock its as though
we are sitting on top of the
world. Our own little world. A
sacred pinnacle where I am vis-
ited by deep and lovely and
transformative thoughts. Its a
place for man and dog to medi-
tate.
Seasons come and go, years
pass, and always we find our-
selves atop that rock slab three
constants: it, Atticus, and me.
Last night, however, things
were a bit different. We havent
been hiking much these last four
months. In July Atticus had a
toe amputated because of can-
cer. The margins were clean but
the high mitotic index warned
us that trouble was lurking so
we elected to start chemo. The
first of six sessions went okay.
There was some abdominal
unrest, one round of vomiting,
but overall he did well.
One of the pleasures of living
with Atticus is that he takes care
to express his needs and comfort
levels. He doesnt climb a
mountain if he doesnt wish to,
nor does he get off the couch if
he doesnt feel like it which is
hardly ever the case but its the
way it was just over a month
ago. So its been easy taking
this unknown journey through
cancer and chemo with him. He
lets me know how he is feeling
and my job is to pay attention.
Its the same way hes always
been there for me. In the three
weeks since his first treatment
we have climbed Black Cap,
White Horse Ledge, Peaked
Mountain, Potash Mountain,
and last night it was Pine
Mountain.
Im told the second round of
chemo, which is tomorrow, can
be one of the worst. So it was
important to me that we get out
and up to where we are happiest
just in case it will be a while
before it happens again. Thats
why we ventured along that
dusty road through heat and
humidity to get to our sitting
place just before sunset. With
the end of daylight just ahead
Atticus sat down and looked
not at the surrounding peaks as
he typically does, but to the
yellow sun, which soon
became orange, then pink, and
then and then it was gone. It
was only after dusk surround-
ed us that Atti walked over. He
sat by my side and drank the
water he had declined before
so he could spend time with
the waning sun. He ate a few
treats and put his now-three-
toed paw on my lap. His pink
tongue was showing, not from
the heat, because the cool had
settled in, but out of what
seemed to me to be joy.
With three toes on my lap and
Attis sparkling eyes looking
into mine, I stood and scooped
him up as Ive done thousands
of times before in these moun-
tains, rested his fanny in the
crook of my arm, and took a
slow turn to take it all in. We
looked as we always do: con-
tent, happy even, filled with
awe, but more importantly we
stood as we always have
together.
My friends keep worrying
about us and how we are han-
dling the cancer and chemo. I

tell them without the slightest
pause that we are fine and will
be throughout it all. Ive said it
before, but thats the gift of
something like cancer. Theres
no time for anything other than
whats genuine. You leave take
out the trash in your life, ignore
anything that isnt important,
protect that which is most
important, and always always
cultivate love. Standing there
with our heads at the same level,
and I imagine our hearts pretty
even as well, I think we were
both smiling.
Thats something Ive learned
lately. Cancer can take toes,
larger limbs even, perhaps even
a life, but it cannot rob you of
whats most important unless
you allow it to. Cancer may
kill, but love is untouchable.
I had chosen Pine Mountain for
a few reasons. Its a great peaks
to get back into shape with, we
treasure the views from various
outlooks, but also because on
this night wed be able to watch
the setting sun from Chapel
Rock and then hustle down the
trail, across the boarded walk-
way, up through the dark, dusky
tangle of rocks, roots, and trees
to the trail to the top of Pine
Mountain Trail to the second
viewpoint. When we emerged
from the forest to an open ledge
we found what our friend Ken
Stampfer (who is far more sci-
entific and gadget-wise than I
am) told me wed find, the full
moon rising over the shoulder of
the Moriahs.
We moved quickly to get there
in time and when we stumbled
into the opening to a breathless
stop, we watched an orange
moon rising through the haze in
the night over the dark bruise of
layered mountains. So beauti-
ful. So perfect. So private and
intimate. I picked up Atticus
and four eyes watched that
ghostly, glowing moon. Then I
placed him on the table of rock
three feet high that stands in the
middle of the ledge and we sat
side by side. Two sighing souls
taking in the ethereal night.
A gentle breeze swirled around
us, the murky woods behind us
produced nighttime sounds, and
we sat in perfect harmony with
it all. We had said goodbye to
the sun, now we were greeting
the moon, as it elevated ripe and
mysterious.
Atticus and I have finished
many hikes in the darkness and
it always tugs upon my child-
hood fear of the dark, but it also
emboldens me. As I told my
friend Dee last night, Life is so
short, why would I want a fear
to rob me of something as beau-
tiful as what we were seeing?
Of course its one thing to sit on
a mountaintop and have a con-
versation with silhouetted
mountains, the moon, and all
those stars, but where I often
have to steal myself is returning
to the woods where the its dark-
er than anything Ive ever
known and my headlamp cre-
ates lurching shadows of witch-
es, ghouls, and childhood
demons as we pass by trees and
limbs.
But thats part of the excite-
ment, I suppose. To go where I
never would have gone before,
to experience these new adven-
tures in daylight and darkness.
Of course what makes it all safe
and sound and worthwhile no
matter how gloomy and dreary
it gets is to have Atticus by my
side. Then fears become adven-
tures, challenges become oppor-
tunities for new experiences,
and life becomes all that more
textured.
Who knew after all these years
of walking these trails in dark-
ness that it would not only help
me grow into the man I wanted
I dreamed of being as a young
boy, it would get us ready for
our greatest challenge. For a
journey through cancer and
chemo could be considered just
as frightening to a man as the
nighttime is to a little boy afraid
of the dark. But facing these
challenges together, Atticus and
I are armed with faith, friend-
ship, and love. Because of that,
anything is possible.
Tomorrow, as Atticus has a port
in his front leg accepting the
poison meant to kill cancer, his
paw will be on my hand as it
was the first time, and it will be
just like walking those dark
mountain trails. Its not the for-
est or the darkness that defeats
you, its the fear. But well be
together and because of that
theres nothing to fear. Its but
one more adventurous chapter
in this book called life.

keep tabs on Tom and Atticus

Time for all politicians to come
clean!
Ill be very honest, owning a
small local newspaper, its hard
to play the political game,
choose sides and come out a
winner!
Ihave spent over 10 years try-
ing to play the game of being
politically correct because I
thought it was the way Ishould
be, even though there are cer-
tainly times that Id just love to
write whats on my mind at the
time! However, Ihave come to
the conclusion that like every-
one else out there, we all have
them - opinions!
Ihave honestly come to the con-
clusion that I dislike what the
media and politicians feel is
political correctness, Idislike
most politicians in general and I
cant stand what our country
has become! There Isaid it, and
have even written it!
Ioften get asked what side of
the fence Iaffiliate myself with.
Am Ia republican or am I a
Democrat, am ILiberal am I
Conservative, am Iprejudice,
am Ifor gay and lesbians, what
religion am I, etc...
Well folks, Iam going to come
clean right here and now. with-
out being politically correct!
Ihave never been and probably
never will be politically correct.
After all, Istill say Merry
Christmas and Istill say the
Pledge of Allegiance.
Ihave no party affiliation what-
so-ever. Iam and always have
been an Independent, voting for
the person who I feel comfort-
able with leading our country
regardless of who they are,
where they are from, or what
ethnicity they may be. Problem
is, Ihave yet to feel comfortable
with any of the politicians
recently leading our country!
Idont care if someone is black,
white, pink or magenta really,
and Icertainly do not care if
they are male or female and it is
2013 and Icould care less what
their sexual preference is. Ihave
mine, let others have theirs!
Period. Who am Ito tell others
how to live their lives? Would I
want them telling me how to live
mine?No! Get over it. Lets
move on.
People should be able to live the
life they want to. After all, isnt
that what freedom is all about?
My God - it is the year 2013 and
we, or should Isay, the media
and the politicians are still play-
ing the politically correct non-
sense on the public.
If it wasnt for the media and the
politicians continually bringing
up that someone is black or
white or gay, no one would even
pay attention to it. I blame the
media and the politicians of
today for the continued tensions
in the country.
Who gave so much power to the
politicians, that they are making
decisions as to what is right or
wrong or what is good or bad
for me? Down to even telling us
what we should and shouldnt
eat.
When is the American public
going to say enough is enough?
When we have no Constitution
left?
As far as religion, I will come
clean on that also. Itend to do
my own thing and believe in
what the Native Americans
beliefs are, and that is that all
life is sacred; treat all living
things with respect. Itry very
hard to do that each and every
day.
Do Icare if you have other
beliefs?No! Idont care if your
belief is in Catholic, Protestant,
Buddism, Judaism, Paganism or
anything else across the coun-
try. You should be able to
believe in whatever you want.
Its a free country, right?
Ishouldnt have to apologize if
you disagree with my thoughts,
as you shouldnt have to apolo-
gize for yours! We are all differ-
ent, but we do all have one
major thing in common. We all
have to live on a place called
earth. Shouldnt we at least try
to make the best of it while we
are here?
Just a thought........
Nobody Asked, Just My
Opinion,

Remembering Our Veterans
I received a recent email from an old Vietnam buddy from Idaho in
response to an email I forwarded to him about the recent anniver-
sary of General James Doolittles famous raid over Japan follow-
ing the bombing of Pearl Harbor, immortalized in the movie,
Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo. Earlier this year the last four sur-
vivors of that raid, all in their nineties, gathered for perhaps the
last time for their annual reunion and ritual of toasting their com-
rades who have passed on.
My good friend remarked about the significant difference between
the World War II veterans and those of us who served during
Vietnam. They have great reunions. The majority of us did not
keep up with each other because most of us hid the fact we served
in Vietnam. What a shame that so many of our Vietnam veterans
still feel shunned some 40 years after the war ended. We answered
our countries call and got blamed for our patriotism. Judging
from the many who visited and paid their respects to the 58,267
fallen heroes whose names appeared on the Vietnam Memorial
Traveling Wall in No. Haverhill this past May and by the 2000 plus
in attendance at the Vietnam Veterans Welcome Home Ceremony
in Concord on March 30th of this year that long overdue Welcome
Home is slowly becoming a reality.
There are Vietnam and Vietnam era veterans out there still hurting
from the way they were treated upon returning home. As
Americans we need to continue to reach out and extend the thanks
and Welcome Home they never received.
The glasses will soon be emptied for the last of the Doolittle
Raiders as well as our other living WWII vets. Next in line is the
aging population of Korean War veterans followed by those who
served during the Vietnam era. While they are still with us give
thanks for their service with give a special long overdue Welcome
Home to the Vietnam and Vietnam era veterans. I have received
my due and I hope you will join me in thanking other Vietnam era
veterans and all the men and women from all branches of the serv-
ice, past and present, for their sacrifices for our country. A thank
you for your service will make their day. You cant thank them
enough.

In response to a recent article in
the Union Leader -
Confused? Line in the sand?
Which is it?
Dutile and other New
Hampshire sheriffs point out
they have no statutory authority
to enforce federal laws anyway,
that's up to the U.S. Marshals.
But if Congress were to pass a
law requiring confiscation of
guns, Dutile said, he and his
deputies would not assist feder-
al agents."I don't think I have
any statutory authority to stop
them from coming, but I would-
n't participate in any of that
activity, nor would any of my
people," he said.
But Dutile said he has no inten-
tion of battling federal agents if
Congress were to pass new gun
laws. In New Hampshire, and
especially in the North Country,
he said, local, state, county and
federal law enforcement agen-
cies work closely, and well,
together.
"If the feds want to come in and
enforce some of their laws in my
county, that's entirely up to
them. I'm not going to get in
their way. In fact, I may even
assist them."
Which is it?

The Literary Circle of Minot-
Sleeper Library, Bristol, is
pleased to invite the public to a
free presentation by author
Betsy Woodman. Betsy is the
author of Jana Bibis Excellent
Fortunes released in 2012 and
Love Potion Number 10: A Jana
Bibi Adventure released just
this August.
Jana Bibi's Excellent Fortunes is
set in the 1960s in a small
Indian Hill Station in what is
now Uttar Pradesh, India. Janet
Laird (Jana Bibi), a Scottish
woman, inherits her grandfa-
thers house and moves in with
her chatty parrot, Mr. Ganguly.
When the town becomes threat-
ened by a planned government
dam, Jana and her new friends
scheme to save the village. The
book is full of adventures, twists
and turns. Critics loved the
book. What a charming,
engaging, and utterly delightful
novel!- author Elizabeth Berg.
NH Magazine What a won-
derful novelThere is delight
to be found everywhere in
Woodmans descriptions and
dialogue. The Publisher
Weekly, Woodmans debut
novel follows a quaint patch-
work of charactersdemon-
strating Indias unique cultural
makeup.
In the newest Jana Bibi adven-
ture, Love Potion Number 10,
Jana, Mr. Ganguly, and the gang
are back as their small town in
India is baffled by an espionage
mystery and a homemade reme-
dy turns everyones thoughts
towards love. The Jolly Grant
House still welcomes all its vis-
itors with the sign Jana Bibis
Excellent Fortunes hanging
proudly outside its front door.
Janas fortune-telling has
brought a lot of attention to the
small town of Hamara Nagar,
and now that the town is safe
from the threat of being flooded
by a government dam, all eyes
are on the Scottish-born card-
reader Jana and her feisty,
loose-beaked parrot, Mr.
Ganguly. Some people, though,
are not to be trusted, and Mr.
Ganguly finds himself at the
center of a potential kidnapping
that puts Jana and her household
on edge. Meanwhile, love is in
the air and, thanks to Abinaths
Apothecary, its also in a bottle.
Abinath has created Love
Potion Number 10 (LPN10, for
short) that has Jana asking her-
self, is a new love possible at
age 59?
Praise for Love Potion Number
10
Climb straight out of your
world and take a stroll to
Hamara Nagar, a not quite dis-
covered Himalayan hamlet in
India in 1961, where the clock is
always a couple of minutes
behind the times. Miss Marple
meets Paul Scotts Staying On
in this charming tale of adven-
ture and intrigue. Nayana
Currimbhoy, author of Miss
Timmins School for Girls
Delightful. Booklist
Colorful, exuberant, Kirkus

Answers
1. Dick and Dee Dee, in 1961.
The song was supposed to be
the b-side of the record until a
DJ accidentally played it. The
song went to No. 2 on the
charts.
2. "Little Green Bag." The song
became a cult classic when it
was used in the film "Reservoir
Dogs" in 1992. Tom Jones even
tried it in 1999, pairing up with
Barenaked Ladies.
3. The Marbles, a San Francisco
psychedelic group from 1961 to
1965.
4. Swing Out Sister. The song
netted a Grammy nod and ended
up on the soundtrack of "Grand
Theft Auto IV".
5. "The Cover of the Rolling
Stone," by Dr. Hook & the
Medicine Show, in 1973. The
song is a satire about the group
not making it on the cover of
Rolling Stone magazine.

Dear EarthTalk: I understand
that there are many internships
available at environmental
organizations, some involving
working outdoors, some year-
round with expenses paid.
Where do I find these?
-- Jason Baar, Los Angeles, CA
Internships can provide profes-
sional experience and on-the-
job training for individuals
looking to enter the environ-
mental field. There are numer-
ous opportunities and the key is
to know where to look. Many
businesses, non-profits and gov-
ernmental organizations offer
internships that are environmen-
tally focused and can range
from office work in many differ-
ent departments to working out-
doors, some year-round and
some short term. Compensation
also varies significantly and can
range from unpaid (but earning
college credit) to salaried and/or
all-expenses-paid.
A good place to start is the
Student Conservation
Association (SCA), which
places over 2,000 interns a year
and focuses on expense paid
year round internships, many of
which are outdoors. They part-
ner with public and private
organizations along with federal
agencies and prescreen appli-
cants to create a national pool of
candidates for organizations to
select from to bring in for inter-
views. Internships through SCA
can offer anywhere from $75-
$300 per week in living expens-
es, plus housing, travel and
medical costs. In addition, an
Americorps education award
may be available to interns at
the completion of their intern-
ship.
The Environmental Careers
Organization (ECO) is also a
well known resource for finding
internships for bachelors, mas-
ters and doctoral students and
recent graduates. This program
partners with the U.S.
Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) and through paid
internships has turned out pro-
fessionals in the environmental
field for over 30 years. ECO
selects 500 associates each year
for 12-week to two-year intern-
ships. Sponsoring organizations
offer internships in research and
training programs in addition to
office, laboratory and field work
assignments. Associates earn
between $400 and $800 per

From Massachusetts, but with many ties and friends to the
Warren, NH area, Harold Crocker and Butch have been doing
shows for over 60 years together! Crocker attended the 37th
annual International Ventriloquist Convention held July 17-20,
2013 in Cincinnati, OH. Harold Crocker received the Distinguished Service Award for outstanding contribution to the art of ven-
triloquism on July 18th which was presented to him by Mark Wade, Executive Director of the Vent Haven Convention. Its one
of the greatest achievements of my life, to be honored by my peers from all over the world, Crocker said. I was shocked. I had
no indication that it was going to happen. When they called my name and I had to go down in front, all these ventriloquists were
standing up and giving me a standing ovation. Tears were streaming down my face. Crocker has been a ventriloquist for 62
years, starting his act when he was 14 years old and continuing it to this day. Harold has attended the convention for 30 years.
Ventriloquists from all over the world were there, a total of six hundred and twenty three to be exact. Other ventriloquists at the
convention this year included, Jimmy Nelson, Jeff Dunham, Terry Fator and Jay Johnson. W.S. Berger founded the Vent Haven
museum. Vent Haven is the only museum of its kind in the world. Located at 33 West Maple Avenue in FT. Mitchell, KY.
Crocker has done shows for the likes of President John F. Kennedys family, Mount Washington Hotel, a number of television
and radio shows and also works with organizations such as the American Red Cross, Shriners Burn Institute, March of Dimes,
Veterans Hospital, Muscular Dystrophy among a very long list of others. Congratulations Harold! - NCN Courtesy Photos

North Country Senator Jeff
Woodburn is inviting interested
high school students to consider
applying for the New
Hampshire Senate Page
Program. It is a one-day com-
mitment, he said.
Being a page in the Senate is a
unique opportunity to learn
about and participate in state
government, said Woodburn, a
former high school civics
teacher. While taking part in the
Senate Page Program, students
will be active participants in an
actual Senate Session, this pro-
viding a firsthand learning
experience regarding the role of
the legislators in state govern-
ment. Student Pages will be
asked to assist the Senate
Clerks Office, and other staff
members, with a variety of
duties that will contribute to the
ultimate creation of new laws
that will govern the State of
New Hampshire. In addition,
students will have an opportuni-
ty to meet their own Senators
and possibly share thoughts and
ideas with them.
Throughout the Senate Session,
Pages will sit in front row
seats inside the Senate
Chamber, where they can
observe the live floor debates
and the legislative process in
action.
Interested high school students
should contact the Senate Clerk
at the Senate Chamber 107

Karner Blue Butterfly Continues Towards Recovery With
Boost From Local Business________________________________________________________
The warm, humid weather con-
ditions this summer were excel-
lent for New Hampshires State
Butterfly. The number of Karner
blue butterflies marked in the
wild surpassed the previous
high number observed by the
New Hampshire Fish and Game
Department's Nongame and
Endangered Wildlife Program
in 2010!
In addition to the great weather,
the Karner blues recovery effort
got another boost this summer
as employees of a local compa-
ny rolled up their sleeves to help
create habitat for the tiny,
bright-blue butterflies. N.H.
Fish and Game and the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service are
collaborating with Praxair
Surface Technologies/TAFA to
increase the amount of habitat
available for the growing popu-
lation. The power line right-of-
way located on the Praxair prop-
erty in Concord, N.H., was the
last known location of the feder-
ally endangered Karner blue
butterfly (Lycaedies melissa
samuelis) in the Northeast.
Each year, the company and its
employees select a local com-
munity engagement project in
support of the community in
which they work. This includes
donation of materials, technical
capability, manpower, and
funds. This year, employees at
the Concord facility assisted
with securing a grant from the
Praxair Foundation to support
efforts to restore habitat on 10-
15 acres of their land parcel,
including a timber harvest that
occurred this spring. Following
the harvest, over 70 employees
spent a morning removing and
stacking brush and planting
wild blue lupine and nectar
plants, which provide habitat for
the butterflies. They transplant-
ed over 600 plants in a matter of
hours, doubling the amount of
existing habitat at the site.
The work that was completed
by the staff of Praxair/TAFA
would have taken a week or
more for our limited staff to
complete, said John Kanter,
Coordinator of the Fish and
Games Nongame and
Endangered Wildlife Program.
The long-term goal of the
Praxair restoration project is to
increase the few butterflies liv-
ing on the parcel to a robust
population of 250-500 adults in
the next few years.
The Praxair funding also paid
for supplies for students in
Concord schools as part of the
"Kids for Karners" program, in
which students grow wild blue
lupine plants in the classroom
for planting on the pine barrens.
Students from the Seacoast
School of Technology in Exeter
and Weare Elementary school
also helped by growing wild
lupine for the companys
employees to plant.
The comeback of New
Hampshire's State Butterfly has
been a remarkable success story.
Surveys from 1983 estimated
the Karner blue butterfly popu-
lation to be over 3,000 individu-
als in the Concord area; by
1988, the population had dwin-
dled to an estimated 600-700
butterflies; by 1994, there were
fewer than 100 Karners left.
Karner blues had declined
because of the loss of their pri-
mary habitat patches of wild
blue lupine (Lupinus perennis),
which is the only food source
for the developing caterpillars.
Habitat also disappeared as the
pine barrens ecosystem devel-
oped into a mature forest
because of fire suppression. As
the forest canopy matured, any
remaining patches of lupine
were eventually shaded out.
Periodic mowing under the
power line corridor provided
long-term maintenance of
lupine, creating the final strong-
hold for the species. A popula-
tion estimate has not been com-
pleted, but this summer's brood
is expected to have come the
closest to reaching the federal
recovery goal of 3,000 Karner
blues in New Hampshire.
This year (2013) New
Hampshire Fish and Game's
Nongame and Endangered
Wildlife Program is celebrating
25 years of success conserving
rare wildlife in the Granite
State. The program is the stew-
ard for the state's nongame
wildlife species not hunted,
fished or trapped. Through
wildlife monitoring and man-
agement, plus outreach and edu-
cation, the Nongame Program
works to protect over 400
species of mammals, birds, rep-
tiles and amphibians, as well as
thousands of insects and other
invertebrates. The program
works in cooperation with other
New Hampshire agencies and
organizations to develop effec-
tive conservation strategies to
protect and enhance vital areas
of habitat and wildlife.

Yoga and PTSD
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
(PTSD), most often used to
describe a condition triggered
by combat trauma in returning
veterans also includes survivors
of rape, kidnapping, child
abuse, spouse abuse, natural
disasters, accidents, concentra-
tion camp experiences, incest,
and burns. Current wars,
protests, and catastrophes con-
tinue to generate more PTSD.
Many of us have such past expe-
riences in need of our full atten-
tion to move beyond the trauma.
Nightmares are often exact
replicas of the traumatic event.
People with PTSD sometimes
move from stimulus to response
without realizing what makes
them so upset. They either over-
react and threaten others or shut
down and freeze.
We live in times of perpetual
trauma generated by fires out of
control, wars over water and
energy, earthquakes, hurricanes,
unemployment, disease, drug
abuse, and so much more.
Depending on the severity of the
stressor, genetic predisposition,
a persons social support sys-
tem, prior traumatic events, pre-
existing personality and other
variables, long-term adjustment
to such trauma varies.
Bessel van der Kolk, a Boston
University psychiatrist, did
research to discover how trauma
affects the brain. He was inter-
ested in discovering a way for
people with PTSD to still the
cacophony of the mind that is
continually reacting to ongoing
stimuli.
He found that Yoga could get
people to safely feel their phys-
ical sensations and develop a
quiet practice of stillness. Yoga
invites people to move through
many postures that are named
after the animals, birds, and
people they represent. Students
are instructed to, as an example,
be the cobra, arching the neck,
extending the tongue, raising
the feet, while giving full atten-
tion to being the cobra.
Victims of violence have rou-
tinely been trapped, pinned
down or unable to move.
Some postures, such as the
backward bending camel or the
child may trigger traumatic
memories. Rather than avoiding
such postures, students are
advised to include them in their
routine and observe that dis-
comfort can be tolerated until
they move into the next posture.
Gradually, as one is able to hold
the posture with full attention
for longer periods, the memory
is replaced by the ability to safe-
ly feel physical sensations and
develop a practice of quiet still-
ness.
Because silence is often terrify-
ing for people with PTSD,
beginning emphasis is on first
developing and regulating
breathing practices, postures
and relaxation before attempt-
ing meditation. If meditation is
attempted too soon, it can
become a terrifying rumination.
For more information on treat-
ment of PTSD with Yoga, van
der Kolk recommends David
Emerson at demerson@trauma-
center.org.
Practices such as Tai chi and
martial arts serve a similar pur-
pose: to develop the ability to
attend closely to the present
moment. These ancient prac-
tices we are rediscovering today
may well lead us to the balance
we need to navigate around
todays world.

Of Many Generations
There comes a time in August
when hints of fall suggest a
slower pace, yet the summer
remains far from over, and the
abundance of the garden threat-
ens to overtake us. The weeds
are noticeably slower in their
growth, and plants both cultivat-
ed and wild seem to be pulling
inward, ready for the winter
they instinctually know to be
coming. Nevertheless, the gar-
den crops are just reaching their
apex, all their growth from the
summers heat culminating in a
cornucopia of produce that out-
paces our appetites. Over the
next two months, the denoue-
ment into colder seasons, the
preservation of the harvest is
imperative: storing for the dark
days of winter what the long
days of summer created.
In the midst of this process is
where we currently find our-
selves. What had in springtime
seemed like a few short rows of
string beans now produces
pounds upon pounds of snap
beans each week. The kale
grows before our eyes. Turnips
must be stored before they turn
woody, large beets must be
pickled before a visiting critter
chooses them for a late summer
meal; the garlic, onions, and
shallots are ready to be pulled,
and the early potatoes have died
back to the ground. Herbs are to
be dried, and theres so much to
eat!
It is a small Eden that weve
created, yet despite the abun-
dance it provides us, we still
spend many days each week
working off-site for income.
Add committees and meetings
and volunteer work, and sud-
denly time seems short for the
very home-grown projects
awaiting us in our garden beds.
We harvested and hung the alli-
ums in early August, a quick
task completed before family
came to visit. Batches of herbs
have been bundled and hung as
space allows, and the first pota-
to harvest will be done by the
time youre reading this. The
other tasks have also been
checked off, but here is where
the title of this becomes so rele-
vant: many generations.
With this, you may have
guessed, I not-so-obliquely ref-
erence my parents. Having
moved to the other side of our
hill last year, we four my
mother, father, Ryan and I -
have lives that beautifully speak
of intergenerational work.
Which is to say: my parents are
always there in the nick of time.
Their basement serves as our
root cellar (where I now have
turnips stored in sand and pota-
toes spread to cure), their
kitchen the site of our preserva-
tion operations on hot summer
days. With time seeming to
compress as I watched the kale,
beans, and beets grow beyond
our control, it was my mother
who willingly welcomed bas-
kets and sacks of produce then
preserved them for us all to
share come winter.
I am much relieved with such
tasks completed, for sure,
thanks to their helping hands.
Their enthusiasm to do so
speaks volumes, more, even,
then their acts themselves. And
so this is about thanks for the
plenty that we have, yes and
gratitude to those closest, with-
out whom plenty would be lost.

WEEK OF SEPT. 2, 2013
ARIES (March 21 to April 19)
A little "wool-gathering" for the
usually productive Lamb is all
right if it helps you unwind. But
be careful; too much daydream-
ing can put you behind schedule
in your work.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)
A work problem is close to
being resolved. Now you can go
ahead and celebrate the week,
accepting invitations from
friends who enjoy your compa-
ny.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)
Getting your new plan accepted
won't be a major hassle if you
have the facts to back it up. Your
supporters are also prepared to
help you make your case. Good
luck.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22)
Dealing with a pesky job prob-
lem might be time-consuming
but necessary. The sooner you
get this situation settled, the
sooner you can move on to other
matters.
LEO (July 23 to August 22)
Career advancement is favored
thanks to your impressive work
record. On the personal side,
you should soon hear some
good news about an ailing fam-
ily member.
VIRGO (August 23 to
September 22) There might be
mixed signals from a certain
someone who doesn't seem all
that certain about his or her
intentions. Best to sort it all out
before it becomes more confus-
ing.
LIBRA (September 23 to
October 22) Get all the facts
about that investment "opportu-
nity" before you put even one
dollar into it. There could be
hidden problems that could
prove to be costly.
SCORPIO (October 23 to
November 21) Compromising
on a matter you feel strongly
about not only ends the impasse,
but can be a win-win deal for
all. Remember: Scorpios do
well with change.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22
to December 21) With all the
demands you currently have to
deal with, accepting the help of
family and friends could be the
wisest course to take at this
time.
CAPRICORN (December 22
to January 19) Recent upsetting
incidents might have left you
with a big gap in your self-
assurance. Refill it by spending
time with those who know how
worthy you really are.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to
February 18) A dispute about
money needs to be resolved
quickly, before it festers into
something more serious.
Consider asking an impartial
colleague to mediate the matter.
PISCES (February 19 to March
20) A soft approach could be
more effective than making a
loud demand for the informa-
tion you need. You might even
find yourself with more data
than you expected.
BORN THIS WEEK: You're
sought out for the wonderful
advice you're able to offer to
others. And sometimes you even
take it yourself.

Sewing Machine
Q: I have a treadle operated
Singer sewing machine in an
oak cabinet from about 1925. I
understand these have become
very popular with collectors.
What is mine worth? -- Bill,
Tyler, Texas
A: Singer sewing machines
were hot with collectors a
decade or two ago, but that
interest has more or less
declined. Most Singers I've seen
in shops and at antique malls
have been priced for less than
$150, even some of the earlier
models.
***
Q: I was a big fan of Ronald
Reagan, and in 1981 purchased
a Carltonware "Spitting Image"
coffee pot with his likeness.
Even though I often visit
antiques malls and shops, I have
not seen another one like it. I
have been offered $150 for it by
a collector. My big question is
whether I should sell it for that
amount or keep it. -- Deborah,
Sun City West, Ariz.
A: Your ceramic coffee pot was
designed by Fluck and Law and
was so popular that knock-offs
also were produced. If your pot
is genuine, it is worth in the
$350 to $650 range.
Since most modern political
campaigns are television driven,
souvenirs have become less
common, especially items such
as your coffee pot. Humor and
satire have been an important
part of our political campaigns,
and that is what makes your pot
so unique and collectible. One
of the better groups for enthusi-
asts is American Political Items
Collectors, P.O. Box 55, Avon,
NY 14414.
***
Q: I have about a dozen older
movie posters, including "Cat
on a Hot Tin Roof," "Portrait in
Black," "Lady Killers," "True
Grit" and "Where's Papa?"
Whom can I contact to find out
what they are worth? -- Steve,
Palm Springs, Calif
A: Conway's Vintage Treasures
is recommended to both buy and
sell movie memorabilia. The
address is P.O. Box 40962,
Providence, RI 02940.

It was famed film producer
and studio executive Samuel
Goldwyn who made the follow-
ing sage observation: "The most
important thing in acting is hon-
esty. Once you've learned to
fake that, you're in."
Sarah Bernhardt, the French
star of stage and early film, who
was often referred to as "the
most famous actress the world
has ever known" and "the divine
Sarah," often slept in a coffin.
She said it helped her to better
understand tragic roles.
Have you ever suffered from
ottorrhea? If you've had a pus-
containing discharge from your
ear, you have.
In the original "Star Trek"
series, a pair of the false ears
worn by Leonard Nimoy in the
role of Spock would last only
three to five days of shooting
before they had to be replaced.
I'm sure you've heard that
President Richard Nixon was
sometimes called "Tricky
Dick," especially toward the end
of his troubled career, but you
may not be familiar with other
nicknames he had. In college his
perceived lack of a sense of
humor prompted the name
"Gloomy Gus," and his tenden-
cy to spend long hours sitting
and studying earned him the
moniker "Iron Butt."
Records show that during the
last seven months of Elvis
Presley's life, he had 5,300 dif-
ferent medications prescribed
for him.
In 1938, Fortune magazine
published a prediction that, in
hindsight, turns out to have been
rather egregiously off the mark:
"Few scientists foresee any seri-
ous or practical use for atomic
energy. They regard the atom-
splitting experiments as useful
steps in the attempt to describe
the atom more accurately, not as
the key to the unlocking of any
new power."
***
Thought for the Day: "Success
usually comes to those who are
too busy to be looking for it." --
Henry David Thoreau
