A Peaceable Kingdom… by Dawn Thomson

Dawn On The Farm Columnist

Life on our animal rescue farm, (aka: Reuben’s Rescue Ranch), is filled with rewarding stories: many humorous, some heartbreaking, yet all intriguing and worth sharing with others. But the reality of the farm’s day to day existence translates into tons of work… work… and more work... the daily chores of caring for 40 plus animals can be tedious and exhausting. I couldn’t do it without my family. While my husband

and I work like dogs ourselves, to feed so many mouths, my two children help feed and care for the crew on a daily basis. Although my kids grumble about all the work and time involved, they still help… almost every day. The financial burden of the farm is downright daunting. My family does without an awful lot, so that we can keep this farm fed, and I’m grateful that my children don’t complain more than they do… they certainly have every right to. Instead, See dawn on 11

Live Free or Die.


Label Maker

by Brendan Smith Weirs Times Editor

As I grow older and have found myself with no choice but to pay attention to the health choices I make. Not necessarily a bad thing. Gone are the days when a sugar-filled, fast food diet energized my teenage body and the thought that I might one day actually be...gasp!!...forty years old, horrified me. It wasn’t possible that everyone would get older; it would never happen to me. I was different. Now, as I approach 60, my thoughts aren’t consumed with such frivolous thinking. I have taken getting older as the natural life progression that it is. Now when I wake up in the morning, I take a deep breath, look in the mirror and say to myself: “What is that bump on my face? That wasn’t there yesterday and how in the heck did I miss that giant hair in my ear? Is it possible I have been walking around like that?� Still, with age comes wisdom. Also with age comes carefully reading the labels in the supermarket. I now am one of that club. You members know who you are. Standing sheepishly, many of us with reading glasses, studying sodium, calorie and other important, possibly life-saving info while teenagers and twentysomethings reach around us, a few even saying

“excuse me�, to grab at things willy-nilly on the shelf. Often when this happens I will think two things to myself. 1) How reckless, you don’t even know what you are putting in your bodies, your precious temples and 2) I’m jealous. Of course, food labels didn’t always exist. Our parents and grandparents somehow survived, many well into their nineties and beyond, without ever looking at a label to see what they were actually eating. Sometimes ignorance is bliss. Labeling for food items began in 1990 when the Nutrition Labeling and Education Act was passed. (I know this because I looked it up.) To many, this was a great breakthrough. This eventually led to the incessant possible side-effects disclaimers that accompany most drug ads. (I’m not really sure about this but I don’t have time to look that up.) Still, I don’t think the labeling thing has gone far enough. There are a few other things that I think would serve the public well if they were labeled or preceded by disclaimers. There should be labels on all voting booths that say: By casting your vote you are no way guaranteed that things will get better. In fact, odds are good that not much will change. In that same vein, all political mailings should carry the same, modified, statements that are on natural food supplements: “These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA (Facts and Details Administration) This is not intended to treat or cure any actual problem the country or

your state is facing.� Also, I think it would be a great idea to put that little recycling logo we see on a lot of things in the corner of the TV screen every time a politician makes a speech. Before each weather forecast there should be a disclaimer: “The following weather forecast is subject to change at a moment’s notice. Do not use this information to actually plan your day as you are bound to be greatly disappointed.� I think it might be wise to one day label dollar bills: “This dollar bill contains a greater percentage of your daily fiber than the actual amount of fiber you are able to buy with it.� I think Smartphones should come with the disclaimer: “Just because it is called a Smartphone, that is no reflection on the actual intelligence, or lack thereof, by the user.� Labelling and disclaimers work only if people really care. For most people, on a day to day basis, many of these things are ignored. In fact, most folks don’t bother paying attention to obvious signs, much less those in small print. Maybe if some of these were more direct, people might pay attention. I always thought it might be fun to change the sign on the 14 items or less line at the supermarket: Considerate people – 14 items or less . Rude, selfish and self-centered people – As many as you’d like. Not sure if it would matter. I know some of you plan your week with this column in mind so I thought I’d let you know that next week it will contain 10% protein, 30% sugar and 70% filler. (No sodium though.)

To The Editor: I checked the Bristol Energy Committee meeting minutes on the town web site; there has only been one official meeting this year. The minutes indicate that the committee, without a vote, will be seeking a grant to study a large scale solar installation in Bristol. Is this a project that the town as a public entity is pursuing? Or are we obtaining funds to benefit a private concern? Will this study be made available to said private concern? It seems odd to me that the Town of Bristol should be seeking public funding for a private business without the knowledge or consent of the Select board, or a vote of the taxpayers. If a private concern wants to build a large scale solar power plant on town property the taxpayers of that community should be consulted. I would think that the best interest of the town would be served if a private company funded their own project and leased the property from the town with a bond in place to insure reclamation of the land at the end of the project. Paul Simard Bristol, NH.

Government as the Enemy To The Editor: One recurring theme of the far right is that govern-

Our Story

ment is intrusive, takes away our freedoms, and is an inefficient bureaucracy. I’m older than average and certainly can remember some examples of government interference. For instance, the EPA stopped the fire that was burning constantly in the Cuyahoga River running through Cleveland. And way back in my younger days in New York City, getting wet in the Hudson River was a bad idea, never mind swallowing the water or eating fish caught there. But for years now, thanks to the EPA, it has been fishable and the New York Parks department sponsors open water races with hundreds of participants. Don’t these government critics want clean water, food that is safe to eat, regulation of electric and gas utilities both for safety and to control the rates we pay; don’t they want the National Institutes of Health to continue as the sponsor of much of the medical research in the US? The list of things the government does that are crucial to our health and welfare is huge. If the far right objects to something specific they should go after that specific thing. Instead we have the mindless and gutless sequester which harms seniors (Meals on Wheels), disadvantaged children (Head Start), and other worthwhile programs. About that inefficient bureaucracy—I’ve been on Medicare and Social Secu-

English Jack To The Editor: It was with great interest that I read the article in the August 15 edition, “The House That Jack Built.” For over 25 years I have been researching individuals who have lived reclusive lives in relative isolation throughout New England, New York, and Pennsylvania. The story of Jack Vials, commonly known as English Jack, is indeed compelling, with its elements of sadness and tragedy. In fact, such a melancholy theme is characteristic in most accounts of hermits, anchorites, and solitary wanderers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. More can be found about Jack in the small 30-page book of verse, The Story of Jack, by James E. Mitchell, first published in 1891 and on the web at: www. whitemountainhistory. org/English_Jack.html Many notable hermits of the era have been written about or shown on old postcards, stereopticon views, and other images. Some from New Hampshire include Charles Lambert of Londonderry, Joseph Plummer of Meredith Hill, and George Cilley See mail boat on 33

It may be seen throughout our State on private and public lands having been planted by many generations of citizens. It is believed that the first New Hampshire lilac planting was in 1750 at the Wentworth-Coolidge Mansion in Portsmouth. Beautiful and fragrant blossoms in a wide range of colors appear in May of each year. For this contest the purple lilac is of greatest interest.

From The State House The Scam That is Medicaid Expansion After spending over two hours at a Public Hearing in our State House this past Tuesday, I have to say I was rather by Rep. Jane disappointed Cormier that virtuBelknap District 8 ally all attendees were there to SUPPORT Medicaid expansion in New Hampshire. We heard from the hospital executives and agency supporters that Medicaid expansion was “the right thing to do”. We heard many stories about folks who needed healthcare and “might have been saved” had they had healthcare. (How could anyone know this as fact? Could this be propaganda?) Emotional stories from well-

intended folks, to be sure. But, all were there to tell the tale of how Medicaid expansion would make New Hampshire a better place to be. It is interesting to note, for the two plus hours I was present, the word OBAMACARE was not uttered once. No one spoke about privacy issues, lower quality healthcare, doctors leaving the system, how the “free” money will stop, or how the government will now be empowered over every individual’s healthcare access. How about all the exemptions bein g of f er ed to b ig b usiness, unions, and government workers? 50% of government deadlines have already been missed. OBAMACARE IS A DISASTER IN THE MAKING. Yet, at this meeting, people spoke as though Medicaid expansion in NH was not related

Colorado’s Grassroots Revolt Against Gun-Grabbers COLORADO SPRINGS --

While most Americans will be chillin’ out, maxin’ and relaxin’ this Labor Day weekend, by Michelle Malkin dedicated patriots in ColoSyndicated Columnist rado are hard at work preparing for a groundbreaking special election day with nationwide repercussions. George Washington would be proud. On September 10, Democratic legislator and state Senate President John Morse of Colorado Springs faces a citizen recall for his sellout to New York anti-gun special interests, for his betrayal of transparency and accountability to constituents, and for his destructive economic policies that are driving thousands of jobs away. Also up for recall: Democratic legislator Angela Giron of Pueblo. In March, Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper signed his left-wing colleagues’ sweeping package of gun- and ammo-control measures -- pushed not by Coloradans, but by gun-grabbing New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the anti-Second Amendment Brady bunch and the White House. Vice President Joe Biden inserted himself into my adopted home state’s legislative process, phoning up swing Democratic legislators to lobby for the bills personally. These radically expanded background checks on every individual gun sale and ammunitions restrictions banning the purchase or transfer of magazines with more than 15 cartridges will do little to nothing to prevent the next Newtown or Aurora or Columbine. “Moderate” Hicken-

looper publicly admitted their ineffectiveness before surrendering to the gun-control zealots. Morse and Giron also posed as middle-of-the-roaders. But there’s nothing moderate about gun-control laws that demonize law-abiding gun owners. While Morse brags of his time as a police officer in Colorado Springs, his brethren in the Colorado Springs Police Protective Association have condemned him and support his recall. One of Morse’s extremist proposals, backed by Bloomberg and company, would have made firearms owners, sellers and manufacturers legally liable for any crimes committed with guns. He was forced to back down on that one. There’s also nothing moderate about marginalizing tax-paying, job-creating gun and ammo manufacturers. The Morse-Hickenlooper-Bloomberg-Biden laws have already forced Coloradobased Magpul Industries and other manufacturers to abandon the state -- and take thousands of related jobs with them. As I reported earlier this year, Magpul alone fueled 600 jobs and an estimated $85 million in spending in the state. Overall, as the National Shooting Sports Foundation found, “The firearms and ammunition industry was responsible for as much as $31.84 billion in total economic activity in the country ... (and) the industry and its employees pay over $2.07 billion in taxes including property, income and sales based levies.” At a local fundraiser in Colorado Springs (which I supported and spoke at), Morse’s GOP challenger and Air Force veteran Bernie Herpin hammered the incumbent over his economic destruction and contempt for the will of the people. “I’m running to defend our Constitutional rights

Hungary; Nexus of History And Commerce in Central Europe BUDA PE ST - I chanced upon Ronald Reagan walking towards F r e e d o m Square here in Budapest. Actually his by John J. Metzler bronze statSyndicated Columnist ue, set in a brisk stride, larger than life, and facing a Soviet war memorial, sums up so many of the political emotions, poignant memories, and ghosts which still swirl round the Hungarian capital even in the bright Summer sunshine. Budapest of course has seen darker days so it’s all the better to celebrate freedom. Hungary remains one of the few former Soviet satellites states to proudly honor the U.S. President’s role in what became the extraordinary peaceful liberation of Central Europe in 1989. Though Ronald Reagan never actually visited Hungary, his policies towards the former Soviet Union triggered the momentous political changes of Autumn 1989. But 1989 is now a generation ago. I remind myself that the generations of young people who flock to Budapest for fun and frolic were not even born when Hungary became the first of the East Bloc regimes to open its border to Austria in Summer that year. The symbolic and very real opening of the infamous Iron Curtain would trigger a political tsunami which swept the socialist so-called people’s republics into the dustbin of history. The generation born in 1989 knows only a very fleeting memory of the old regime; theirs fortunately was a happier time. Hungary regained its sovereignty, established a parliamentary democracy, and integrated itself into the European institutions which today remain a bulwark and insurance policy for its continued freedom and prosperity. Hungary joined NATO in 1999 and the European Union in 2004. Indeed by the late 1990’s Hungary was prospering economi-

cally emerging as a nexus for foreign investment and trade with Europe, the USA and the Far East. But bouts of a Socialist government combined with the global recession starting in 2008 has noticeably jolted and jarred the good times of a decade ago. While the Socialists, noted for corruption, were massively voted out by the current center-right coalition in 2010, the country still is paying the price for the profligate spending of their tenure. Significantly the current government has made an early repayment of a $3 billion IMF loan it owed from 2008. It hurts me to say, but Budapest, this magnificent capital on the Danube looks a bit more tattered and down than it was when we last visited a decade ago. Naturally the economic downturn plays a big role; while growth rates a decade ago averaged 5 percent, today they are anemic inching back towards just under one percent. Unemployment is high at ten percent despite what seems like massive public works projects just about everywhere even in front of the majestic Parliament building. Hungary’s central geographic location, skilled workforce and still relatively low wages give the country a genuine comparative advantage for foreign investment. Investment from the United States, Germany, France and Japan is central to Hungary’s open export- oriented economy. Since 1989, Hungary has hosted $98 billion in direct foreign investment. Germany’s AUDI automaker has expanded its factories in Gyor with a billion dollar plus new facility to ramp up car production from 33,000 today to a projected 125,000. French firms number 350 and have invested more than $13 billion. American investment plays a central role with more than 200 companies. Much of Hungary’s production is exported duty-free within the European Union. Equally in 2012, U.S.. twoway trade with Hungary stood at $4.8 billion. Hungary’s fractious but free political atmosphere is already

clouded by parliamentary elections scheduled for next spring. The current conservative populist Fidesz/Civic Union government led by Prime Minister

Viktor Orban, a former soccer player but an equally tough player on the political pitch, is prone to rhetorical flourishes.

A Truly Great Phony Many years ago, I was a member of a committee that was recommending to whom grant money should be awarded. Since I knew by Thomas Sowell o n e o f t h e Syndicated Columnist applicants, I asked if this meant that I should recuse myself from voting on his application. “No,” the chairman said. “I know him too -- and he is one of the truly great phonies of our time.” The man was indeed a very talented phony. He could convince almost anybody of almost anything -- provided that they were not already knowledgeable about the subject. He had once spoken to me very authoritatively about Marxian economics, apparently unaware that I was one of the few people who had read all three volumes of Marx’s

“Capital,” and had published articles on Marxian economics in scholarly journals. What our glib talker was saying might have seemed impressive to someone who had never read “Capital,” as most people have not. But it was complete nonsense to me. Incidentally, he did not get the grant he applied for. This episode came back to me recently, as I read an incisive column by Charles Krauthammer, citing some of the many gaffes in public statements by the President of the United States. One presidential gaffe in particular gives the flavor, and suggests the reason, for many others. It involved the Falkland Islands. Argentina has recently been demanding that Britain return the Falkland Islands, which have been occupied by Britons for nearly two centuries. In 1982, Argentina seized these islands by force, only to have British Prime Minister See Sowell on 28

THE WEIRS TIMES & THE COCHECO TIMES, Thursday, September 5, 2013

by Mike Moffett Contributing Writer

THE PERFECT JOB Many of us still have to “work for a living,” and if one has to work, one hopes to be happy in his or her work. But we should remember that many people don’t even HAVE jobs—or they have jobs that are problematic in terms of location, salary, benefits, bosses, subordinates, co-workers, climate, work space, opportunities for advancement, or just plain old general job satisfaction. Self-employment is the answer for some, as they seek that ideal career situation, but working for one’s self can have its own challenges. We spend considerable time in my sports management classes discussing authentic vocations, ideal careers, and dream jobs. So it was cool to actually have a “Eureka” moment about the ideal career early in July when I was welcomed into a radio broadcast booth during the fourth inning of a Cape Cod Baseball League game in Cotuit, Mass. A friend had invited me to spend an inning in that booth to talk baseball and to plug my book. I loved it. Baseball’s pace is such that broadcasters have time to chit-chat about all kinds of things. I enjoyed it so much that I didn’t want to leave the booth when my inning stint was over. And then I finally realized what the best job in the world is—working

Mike Moffett during the fourth inning of a Cape Cod Baseball League game in Cotuit, Mass. as a color baseball commentator for the Boston Red Sox. The pay and benefits are great. One gets to travel and hang out with the stars. To opine and entertain. To sleep late. To be the object of intense affection from the denizens of Red Sox Nation. To be off from October to February before heading to sunny Florida for spring training to meet even more cool people and even sign autographs. I’d finally identified the “Perfect Sports Job!” Jerry Remy A recent holder of the world’s best sports job was Jerry Remy, aka Rem-Dawg. A former Red Sox second baseman, Remy turned his NESN baseball color commentator fame into fortune, parlaying that name recognition and fan affection into a restaurant chain—each place known as “Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar and Grill.” Until I figured out the truly perfect job during my Eureka Moment in July, my previous notion

of the perfect job was to own “Mike’s Sports Bar” in some cool venue, on the water somewhere. Rem-Dawg beat me out on that too, and so could actually claim BOTH of the best jobs in the world. Great. Sadly, Remy’s seemingly perfect world was shattered last month when his son Jared was arrested with blood on his hands following the stabbing death of girlfriend Jennifer Martel. The hearts of Remy’s many fans ached for Rem-Dawg to the point that some had to point out that the real victims were Ms. Martel and her now-motherless daughter Arianna. Remy has since stepped away from the perfect job, leaving us to ponder that no situation is ever truly perfect. Fame and success are fleeting—as is life itself. Thus this may be a perfect time for all of us with less than perfect situations to take time to reflect and to count our many blessings. See moffett on 26

News From Live and Let Live Farm Diamond (on the front page) is a 17 year old, 15 +/- hand, chestnut Quarterhorse mare with a white star on her forehead. She is well trained and fairly well broke but requires a knowledgeable handler because she sometimes makes her own decisions about what she will and will not do, and she is too quick for a beginning rider. Clint (top photo) is a Draft mix who has been ridden, though could definitely benefit from more training and someone with more time to spend with him. He is about 10 years old and 15+ hands. Ronaldo (bottom photo at left) is a young goat born end of April, 2013). He is wethered and very friendly. We actually have 9 goats available for adoption right now.

Currently living in an ofďŹ ce at the shelter, Betsy enjoys exploring and playing. She can be affectionate and enjoys being cuddled and loved. She would do best with an experienced owner in a quiet home - preferably without stairs! She currently shares the ofďŹ ce space with two other cats, but would probably be best as an only pet as she is easily startled.

they continue to lend both physical and emotional support to my life-long endeavor. In fact, it was my daughter’s idea for me to start this column... the goal behind it being two-fold. First, it’s to share the stories I’ve been verbally telling for years, a kind of start of my “someday bookâ€? about this beloved farm of mine. Second, it’s to generate public awareness, in hopes of helping us be able to continue what we do here. As part of this effort, since my first column in May, we decided to open our farm one day a week, to visitors. Our animal friends have so much love to give, and we want to share their presence with others. Since Saturday’s the most convenient day for the public, my husband and I began taking Saturdays off from our “realâ€? jobs, to accommodate being open here at the farm. We started out enthusiastically. But the first few weeks were discouraging. We’d rush around feeding, watering, setting up pens, and haltering goats, donkeys, and horses, to bring our farm crew out in the yard for hands-on meet and greet. But most weeks it was just us and the animals‌ and the crickets‌ as we anticipated the visitors that never came. By mid-Summer, I was losing hope. “Maybe this openfarm day wasn’t such a great idea,â€? I started voicing to my husband‌ “after all, we could be doing LOTS of other things with our time‌ like working to support them for one.â€? And then... just as we were about to give up... miraculously, visitors

Since then, every Saturday in August has brought more visitors than the last. And the feedback has been phenomenally positive! When you pull in our driveway, you are greeted by dogs and donkeys alike. The scene before you might look something like this: one child hugs a donkey, while another leads a goat around the yard. Still others squeal with delight as they caress a duck’s smooth feathers, or brush a rabbit’s soft fur. But it’s not just kids who love it here. Lots of adults are coming in as well‌.and many have already returned for repeat visits! Go ahead, admit it‌you’ve always wanted to meet a llama or hold a goose!

We Miss Harry! Frazier Says I’m Ignorant It has been one year since we lost our friend Harry Hammond. Harry was the first voice our guests by Niel Young Advocates Columnist and callers would hear on the WEZS phones. Harry was with me as our “screener” from Day One, now finishing the 17th year. Harry, father to son Gary owner of WEZS was just a wonderful human being. Harry would be chided for being “the voice of The Advocates” because he was the one who spoke to the big names and not so big names readying them for their airtime. When someone in the studio or on the phone said something humorous I would quickly look to the window separating Harry from the studio. He would be laughing – such a good man. We won’t forget and will continue to miss him. ******** Last week in the NH Union Leader “Manchester’s new teacher contract leaves students dangerously unsupervised” an op-ed by Brendan McCafferty, Principal of Hillside Middle School and president of the Association of Manchester Principals wrote: “As part of the process of determining this year’s school calendar, representatives of the Board of School Committee and Manchester Education Association created and signed a Memorandum of Understanding. This MOU has several conditions, but chief among them is the change to the length of the school day. Teachers will enter school at the same time as the students and re-

main only five minutes after dismissal at the elementary level and eight minutes at the middle school level. This creates a major concern for the safety of your children. “Although the configuration is different in each building, all schools provide for dismissal to buses, cars and walking. This MOU places the responsibility of dismissing hundreds of students with the building administration. “We are very concerned about the logistics of one or two people trying to assist students to their mode of transportation and to the right person while monitoring the remaining students. The typical dismissal today takes 15 to 25 minutes and involves most, to all staff members.” ******** I wrote: “Some of us remember when teachers would stay after the last bell for students who truly cared re: questions to help them better understand. I know, I know, that was 50 years ago. Picture this: the student empties their locker and then seeks out one the educators (then known as teachers) to ask a question regarding today’s class, or perhaps a question for tonight’s homework. The door is open the teacher is at their desk. Teacher looks up from their project and asks one of their students; what can I help you with? Today the teachers’ unions and other groups of folks want to keep the student trapped in their Government Indoctrination Centers, such a shame.” Okay, here comes the attack from a writer named Dean Frazier: “Niel Young, there are hundreds of union teachers here in Manchester

who do exactly what you described. You have no idea what goes on in Manchester schools after the final bell rings at the end of the day. They also volunteer for after school events, clubs and activities. Traditionally, Manchester’s union teachers have never kept to the hours of their contract, but simple minded people, such as yourself, fail to acknowledge the many hours spent before and after ‘the bell’ in educational and school activities - including the spending of their own money so that students have proper supplies. The shame is on you with your ignorant generalizations and union bashing, such ignorance - what a shame.” Perhaps Dean’s feelings should be expressed to Brendan, whatever. I respond the next day: “I almost responded to Frazier last night, but decided to get my rest to do verbal battle again today. He does not know me yet to him I am ignorant for commenting on the words of Mr. McCafferty. As far as me citing the way it was 50 years ago I stand by my history. And for that Frazier calls me ignorant? BTW Dean, did I miss the part about “the children” or are the students hostages for more money less work? Frazier: “No, Young, you are ignorant because what you claim happened 50 years ago and is absent in Manchester city schools does indeed exist. Teachers do stay beyond contracted hours to help students and volunteer their time without hesitation. There is no less work taking place..... that’s why you’re ignorant.” You know Frazier you continue to prove you See advocates on 33

Everyone knows spring and summer are the best months in which to sell a home. If your house has lingered on the market, you may be eager to find ways to freshen its appeal for potential buyers. Perhaps you’re even ready to go big and invest in upgrades that will improve the home’s value, curb appeal and interior allure so much that potential buyers just won’t be able to walk away from it. If you’re at that point, first figure out how much you can reasonably invest. Will the improvement increase your home value enough to allow you to recoup its cost? Maybe not, but if your priority is a faster sale, return on investment might have a different meaning for you. Next, look at areas of your home where improvements will have the biggest impact - spots that are the least appealing or those that have the most appeal. Upgrading a less-than-great room can bring it up to snuff, but upgrading a good room

could make it absolutely smashing. For example, painting a small bathroom in a bright color could make that cramped space feel bigger. Adding a skylight to your kitchen, bath, or other area in your home however, will really make a splash with abundant natural light and fresh air. Here’s a room-by-room game plan for high-impact upgrades that could make buyers fall in love with your home: Anywhere -Buyers are, universally, looking for beauty and value. Any improvement that gives both can directly impact your ability to sell your home. Adding a skylight is a great way to enhance a home’s visual appeal, livability and energy efficiency while improving indoor air quality by introducing much needed fresh air into the home. Natural light can make a small room look bigger and brighter, and create a more healthful environment. Adding a traditional or tubular skylight to any room in the house brings more natural light into your home. Plus, Energy Star-qualified, solar-powered fresh-air skylights, like those made by Velux America, can provide fresh air through cost-effi-

cient passive ventilation to reduce humidity and stale air, and heating, cooling and lighting costs. Add remote-controlled, solar powered blinds, and you can boost a skylight’s energy efficiency by 39 percent, Velux states. Finally, this is one high impact investment that can actually put cash back in your pocket. Installation of energy-efficient no leak solar powered fresh air skylights and blinds can qualify you for up to a 30 percent federal tax credit on the -products and installation costs. Visit to learn more and calculate your tax credit for new or replacement skylights. Kitchen and bathroom - Any Realtor will tell you great kitchens and bathrooms can sell a house. If yours are only so-so, they could be what’s standing in the way of getting an offer. If you’ve already done the basics - cleaning and decluttering, repainting and replacing dated cabinet hardware - it may be time to pull out the big guns. New appliances and fixtures will cost you a few thousand, but can go a long way toward wooing buyers. See upgradeson 15


THE WEIRS TIMES & THE COCHECO TIMES, Thursday, September 5, 2013

upgrades from 14

New appliances look great, are more energy-efficient, and provide buyers the peace of mind knowing they won’t face repair or replacement costs any time soon. New fixtures such as rainfall shower heads and touch-free faucets add an element of luxury to the most common bathroom. Adding a tile backsplash or new wood-look laminate flooring in the kitchen, and new tile floor in the bath can also create a big impact - and for less money if you do the work yourself. Replacing lower-quality or older countertops is also an eye-catching upgrade. The trick is to find the improvement that will have the biggest visual impact in your space. Living room/family When buyers enter your home, chances are the living room or family room

will be one of the first rooms they see. Their impression of that room can set the tone for how they perceive the rest of the house. Again, assuming you’ve done the basics - painting, window treatments and accessories - a major upgrade in this room can have a winning impact. If your home already has a fireplace, take a close look at it. What can you do to make it more appealing? Does it need a new facade? Larger gas logs or a better blower? Can you upgrade the mantel? If your home lacks a fireplace, adding one can be a great selling point. It’s possible to add a gas fireplace for less than $5,000 in most homes. Adding a gas insert to a wood-burning fireplace is even cheaper.


If you want privacy, views, a beautiful setting, & a convenient location then this remarkable property is like paradise found. This home is a showplace but the grounds & view will equally captivate you. Built in 1988, this single owner 2-3 bedroom home is in pristine condition.

dawn from 11

live in individual pens. Instead, horses, donkeys, goats, chickens, (roosters too), ducks, geese, and even our llama coexist peacefully in one large paddock, like a huge multi-species family. Many days they can be seen all lying down together, enjoying a siesta in the sun. It’s a funny sight, when a chicken decides to sleep perched upon a horse or donkey’s back. This seems to be what amazes our visitors the most...that so many animals, of all shapes and sizes, can live together in such peace and harmony. Perhaps we could learn a thing or two from our furry friends. On Saturdays, we bring out most of the animals to graze freely around the property, with nothing more than loose lead ropes attached to their halters, to keep them from wandering too far. Could they take off? Yes. But they do not. Why? Because they are happy‌they are content. They love the grass and the weeds, and often my tomato plants‌. much to my chagrin. But most of all they love the hands-on attention from their family, and from all the people who come to see them.

We’ve been told multiple times that the energy here is “amazingâ€?, “calmingâ€?, or “healingâ€? and the farm has been referred to as a “peaceable kingdomâ€?. “How do you do it?â€? our guests ask. We don’t‌the animals do. We’re truly blessed that, most of the time, the animals coexist and even accept newcomers with little more than a mild assertion of who’s at the top of the pecking order. They are all amazing creatures‌and each one has their own unique story of how and why they came to live with us. Our goal is to continue to be the sanctuary they need us to be. We are extremely grateful to all those who’ve stopped in to share the experience of Reuben’s Rescue Ranch, and who’ve helped support it by shopping in our thrift shop,

buying our farm fresh eggs, or making a donation to our cause. THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU! And may more of you continue to visit. Dawn Thomson is an independent columnist, who with the help of her husband and two children, runs an animal sanctuary, called Reuben’s Rescue Ranch, located at 161 NH Route 104, Danbury, NH 03230. The farm is open to the public most Saturdays, from 10am-5pm, and is FREE FOR ALL, but donations are gratefully accepted‌.or you may purchase something from the farm thrift shop to help support the animals. For more information, call 7683779. You can also like them on Facebook or visit their website at: www.

The Foundation encourages people to tour the planes, talk to the veterans who come to visit the aircraft, and participate in a “flight experience”. In twenty-one years, the tour has made more than 2,378 visits to airports across the United States and Alaska. While the exact number of visitors is difficult to gauge, it is estimated that between 3 and 4 million people see these war birds annually.

“King Of The Golden Oldies”

The Four Seasons set the R & B world on its ear in 1956 as they tried to duplicate the Sepia sound. A totally white group which covered such great hits at The Drifters’ “Honey LOve,” they featured a good sound, yet not polished enough to create a hit in the mid-fifties. Frankie Valli, better known to his Jersey friends as Francis Casteluccio, initially formed a group called The Varietones. For their recording debut, The Varietones somehow became The Four Lovers and this is where the story gets a bit strange. The boys were scheduled to record a song on RCA when the songwriter pulled the best swap of talent, time and energy that had ever taken place in recorded



history! Otis Blackwell, the song’s author, presented The Four Lovers with “You’re, the Apple of My Eyes,” a well-written number but one which could never match the one he penned for another artist. Would you like to know the name of the song The Four Lovers were forced to give up? Well, it ended up being an all-tune chartbuster for one Elvis Aaron Presley and its title was “Don’t Be Cruel.” After that fiasco, The

Four Lovers tried in vain to find a winning formula, and ultimately moved to Epic records where the recorded, “My Life For Your Love.” The next stab at musical greatness for Frankie Valli came with another Jersey group The Romans on the Cindy label - they hit the charts with “Come Si Bella.” In 1960, Valli decided to form a new band and decided to name it The Four Seasons after a loSee DEE on 29

Sportsquiz How many times did Carl Yastrzemski hit 30something home runs in a season? (Answer follows)

Sportsquiz Answer Yaz hit 30-something home runs in a season zero times. He hit 40 or more three times but otherwise never hit more than 28 in a season.

Born Today ... That is to say that sports standouts born on September 5 include old-time baseball great Nap Lajoie (1874) and Pittsburgh Pirate second baseman Bill Mazeroski (1936), who won the 1960 World Series with a home run in the bottom of the 9th inning against the New York Yankees.

Margaret Thatcher take the islands back by force. With Argentina today beset by domestic problems, demanding the return of the Falklands is once again a way for Argentina’s government to distract the Argentine public’s atten-

THE WEIRS TIMES & THE COCHECO TIMES, Thursday, September 5, 2013

tion from the country’s economic and other woes. Because the Argentines call these islands “the Malvinas,” rather than “the Falklands,” Barack Obama decided to use the Argentine term. But he referred to them as “the Maldives.” It so happens that the

Maldives are thousands of miles away from the Malvinas. The former are in the Indian Ocean, while the latter are in the South Atlantic. Nor is this the only gross misstatement that President Obama has gotten away with, thanks to the mainstream media, which sees no evil, hears no evil and speaks no evil when it comes to Obama. The presidential gaffe that struck me when I heard it was Barack Obama’s reference to a military corps as a military “corpse.” He is obviously a man who is used to sounding off about things he has paid little or no attention to in the past. His mispronunciation of a common military term

was especially revealing to someone who was once in the Marine Corps, not Marine “corpse.” Like other truly talented phonies, Barack Obama concentrates his skills on the effect of his words on other people -- most of whom do not have the time to become knowledgeable about the things he is talking about. Whether what he says bears any relationship to the facts is politically irrelevant. A talented con man, or a slick politician, does not waste his time trying to convince knowledgeable skeptics. His job is to keep the true believers believing. He is not going to convince the others anyway. Back during Barack Obama’s first year in office, he kept repeating, with great apparent earnestness, that there were “shovel-ready” projects that would quickly provide many much-needed jobs, if only his spending plans were approved by Congress. He seemed very convincing -- if you didn’t know how long it can take for any construction project to get started, after going through a bureaucratic maze of environmental impact studies, zoning commission rulings and other procedures that can delay even the smallest and simplest project for years. Only about a year or so after his big spending programs were approved by Congress, Barack Obama himself laughed at how slowly everything was going on his supposedly “shovelready” projects. One wonders how he will laugh when all his golden promises about ObamaCare turn out to be false and a medical disaster. Or when his foreign policy fiascoes in the Middle East are climaxed by a nuclear Iran. Thomas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

Recently Orban stated that despite its political freedom of the past twenty years, Hungary remained a “vulnerable and exploited” country. Such nationalist tones have not played well with much of the foreign business community. The Socialists a descendent of the former communists, and the nefarious neo-Nazi Jobbik movement on the political fringe are among many political parties. Indeed 1956 is a long time ago too. The indelible events of October and the Hungarian Revolution against the occupying Soviets, remain a political bellwether in a country defined by its proud and independent personality. The reformist Prime Minister Imre Nagy tried to pull socialist Hungary from the bear’s grip, only to be slammed back by a massive counter attack in November. Hungary would remain communist until 1989. Those shadows still linger on Budapest’s streets and boulevards where the aspirations, the ghosts, and the memory of that brief whiff of freedom in 1956, have never quite disappeared. Just across from Parliament there’s a small monument with a bridge on which Imre Nagy stands, looking at the parliament but suspended in time as if wondering what would happen. Just down the same street, Ronald Reagan strides confidently towards Freedom Square. John J. Metzler is a United Nations correspondent covering diplomatic and defense issues.

cal cocktail lounge he frequented. Luckily, at this point in time he had the good fortune to meet Bob Gaudio; a man who had written the memorable “Short Shorts” song. With the addition of Gaudio, a superb inhouse songwriter, The Four Seasons were well on their way to becoming one of the great vocal groups of the sixties. With Gaudio’s songwriting and Valli’s falsetto voice, The Four Seasons quickly brought “Sherry” and “Walk Like A Man” to the top of the charts. When you look back and think about it, The Four Seasons really could have their own Top Forty - and if you don’t believe me, just glance at this list of hits: “Ain’t That A Shame,” “Rag Doll,” “Dawn,” “Stay,” “Big Man In Town,” “Bye Bye Baby,” and Valli’s solo hits “I Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,” and “My Eyes Adored You.” The Four Seasons have run the gamut of troubles from being at the

top of the musical world to owing one and a half million dollars in back debts ....but somehow have managed to survive all of the breakups and bitterness that longterm business relationships often incur. The Four Seasons provided the world with music that we’ll never forget. The team of Bob Crew and Bob Gaudio wrote songs that eventually elevated their band to the status of best loved vocal group of the sixties. Ah! yes, let it be known that “Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall, The Four Seasons brought musical happiness to us alt:’ Bobby Dee is the host of “Rock & Roll Caravan” on WNHN 94.7FM.

of Orange. More recently, Sheila Swett Thompson authored a fine book entitled Perley: The True Story of a New Hampshire Hermit. It is about her grandfather Daniel Perley Swett, The Hermit of Taylor Pond in Stoddard. Although many individuals sought long-term solitude as an escape from severe hardship or tragic circumstances, others experimented with solitude. For example two great writers of the period, Henry David Thoreau and John Burroughs, chose to experience a reclusive life in order to commune with the basics of the simple, natural world and to elaborate on their experiences in books that are now classics. Currently we live in a technologically driven world and are continuously dominated by sensory overload. An incessant bustle of close coexistence with neighbors, family, and colleagues only exacerbates the inability to seek and find personal space. To help put life into meaningful perspective, I suggest that we take the time to read and learn about folks who chose a life of solitude. It has

been enlightening for me to reflect on these alternative lifestyles over the years. Moreover, in doing so, I find it much easier to cope with the daily angst of economic and political squabbling so prevalent in the media today. I encourage Weirs Times to publish more human-interest features such as the English Jack piece and on local things to do and see, even at the expense of some of the syndicated columns of political rhetoric that grace much of each issue.

to the bloated government mandate called the Affordable Care Act. Now, it is not surprising that hospitals are lobbying for expansion. In the short term, hospitals in New Hampshire stand to receive LOTS of money (our tax dollars) from the Federal government. However, since we already know

“money carrots” are a tactic of the progressive left to GROW expanded government, one needs to STOP and seriously look at this complex and divisive issue. Obamacare seeks to expand coverage to the uninsured via expansion of Medicaid, which is America’s governmentrun health care program for the poor. States get

to choose whether or not to participate in this expansion. Our state now has a Governor-appointed commission looking at this issue. The House and Senate will take up this “discussion” regarding expansion this fall. The Lewin Group, a leading healthcare policy research and management consulting firm, has prepared a very de-

tailed and comprehensive report specifically regarding New Hampshire expansion of Medicaid. They concluded that Medicaid expansion would only reduce the number of uninsured by 22,300. However, 32,120 people would be moved from their current high quality private insurance into the Medicaid program with

expansion. In fact, it is estimated NH hospitals stand to lose $228 million from 2014 – 2020 if Medicaid is expanded. NH providers can also expect to see an estimated $45 million loss in net income if the expansion is approved. Who will subsidize this loss? You got it. The NH taxpayer, of course! We all know that Medicaid is a broken system. The fact is people in Medicaid fare no better on health outcomes than those without any insurance at all! We need to say NO to that dang “money carrot”! It offers us NOTHING. NH cannot absorb this expense. We already spend 47% of our 2015 NH State Budget on Health and Social Services. Clearly, New Hampshire will need another “funding source” to pay for this expansion. The “End Game” could FINALLY result in NH having to accept an Income or Sales Tax. UGH. But, that is an article for another day! “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’” —Ronald Reagan
