On this particular day they had deserted the steps and roved inside where it was dry and comfortable. Overnight it had turned fallish and the soft rain had brought an October chill with it. Toby Clark shifted his

cud from one side of his jaw to other and wondered where to summer had gone to. Seemed as if his wife had just hardly got the vegetable garden planted when it was time for her to pull it up and spade the soil all over again.

The regular members of The Cracker Barrel cronies had been sitting out on the ride steps of the grocery store all summer grumbling about the heat and the “it ain’t the heat, it’s the humidity,”

and watching cute nubile young things saunter by in their summer dresses. Tom Hurkey like to have fell off the steps when he got a quick glimpse of Penny Herkmer’s leg as she pedaled by on her bicycle one breezy afternoon. He spent the rest of the afternoon watching for her to come back by but she didn’t. He cut his thumb twice because he


The busy summer has wound down from Weirs Beach (shown here in this historic postcard view) to the mountains to the seacoast. As the tourists and summer visitors pack up and head home the natives get back to business as usual. Ed Allard, who wrote his “Around The Cracker Barrel” column for The Weirs Times from 1992-2000, knew New Hampshire “Yankees” better than anyone. As we take a few breaths after the summer season we thought there was no better way to relax with a few laughs than with one of Ed’s classic columns. – a NH nonprofit organization – will host its 4th annual CelebratePink 5K Run & Walk in downtown Portsmouth on Saturday, September 15th at 9am. The CelebratePink Run and Walk is held to raise awareness and funds for its new local My Breast Cancer Support initiative. Runners and walkers of all levels and ages are encouraged to join in this very fun and uplifting event. There will be lots of prizes, activities for the kids, vendors, food and more.

Lakes Region Wineries To Hold Barrel Tasting Weekend — Weekend of Sept. 29th & 30th —

Six wineries in the Lakes Region will be holding a Barrel Tasting Weekend on September 29th and 30th. This is the first-ever coordinated event between the Lakes Region wineries, which include Coffin Cellars, Stone Gate Vineyard, Gilmanton Winery, Sap House Meadery, Haunting Whisper Vineyards, and Hermit Woods Winery. At each winery, guests will have the opportunity to taste young wines directly from the oak and stainless steel barrels that are used to ferment and age the varietals. Not only will it be a unique opportunity to taste wine in the early stages of its development, visitors will be able to meet the wine makers, tour the wine making facilities, and learn all about the wine making process. In addition, many of the wineries will be hosting other local vendors during the event, and offering special foods and winerelated items to guests. For those who visit more than one of the participating wineries that weekend, there will be chances to win generous prizes donated by local businesses. The Inns & Spa at Mill Falls in Meredith, NH is the lead sponsor of the event, and visitors who get a stamp from all six wineries will be entered into a drawing for the grand prize of a two-night stay at Church Landing valued at $718. Other prizes for visiting multiple wineries include a two-night stay at Steele Hill Resort valued at $300, a three month membership to Laconia

Our Story The Weirs Times was first published in 1883 by Mathew H. Calvert. The newspaper, then named Calvert’s Weirs Times and Tourists’ Gazette, was published until Mr. Calvert’s death in 1902. One of the most remarkable features of the publication was a map of Lake Winnipesaukee which occupied the center spread of the paper. Readers will find the same map reprinted on the center pages of this, and every issue. The new Weirs Times was re-established in 1992 and strives to maintain

Going To Warn Readers Dear Sirs: I’d like to recommend, you better change the name of your paper to “Weird Times.� You are not devoted to the interests of Lake Winnipesaukee, as you say, but to to the Republican party and tea party and all the nonsence they spread. Me, a German living here each summer since a couple of years, has never ever read so many Republican, GOP oriented misleading stuff in a local paper, dedicated to residents but to visitors too. Spreading information based on trying to support the worst possible potential US president, Mitt Romney, plus a VP, who will set back the US to the 50ies will change NH to a State you better not visit as a liberal European. More than 50 per cent of Lake Winipesaukee citizens might want Romney to be the next president. Can one believe it? Yes, because the citizens here only watch Fox and read the paper Weirs Times. Result: They believe in stuff, which is hardly true or rarely based on facts. Dear Weirs Time Editor, I’d like to tell you something: if your articles will not become more politically neutral, means independent and bipartisan, I’m going to warn not only readers, not to read all your misleading stuff, but also potential regional, local, national and international clients

not to spend a cent on advertising, since this money will only support the GOP campaign. What is worst: GOP guys haven’t to pay for ads, since Weirs Time is a wonderful free of charge PR tool for them. Having in mind what had happened since last year in the two houses in DC I can only say: “Good night, fathers of the constitution. It’s a weird time today, which you never had in mind when working on the constitution. But keep on resting in peace. In 5 to 10 years it’s all over. Believe in America will remain, but not to believe in Romney and all the guys on his ticket. The 99% of US Americans will finally understand that they were/are cheated by the 1% and their lobby.� Me, as a guest in this wonderful country and the State of NH, has a hope: “live free� means to act as free as the former governor of FL, Charly Christ actually. “Or die� possibly means redneck thoughts will eventually die out. Claus Luebker Wolfeboro, NH.

the patriotic spirit of its predecessor as well as his devotion to the interests of Lake Winnipesaukee and the Cocheco Valley area with the new Cocheco Times. Locally owned for over 20 years, this publication is devoted to printing the stories of the people and places that make New Hampshire the best place in the world to live. No, none of the daily grind news will be found in these pages, just the good stuff. 30,000 copies are distributed every week in the Lakes

Region/Concord/Seacoast area. 15,000 delivered to communities along the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee and another 15,000 to neighboring cities and towns.

to consider on where to spend the money and get the greatest ban for the buck. Some roads in this state are not a priority because they are the less traveled. So we put up with the bumps and holes and spot repair as we can. There are some roads and bridges in communities that are just not safe and those have to take a priority. As a legislature, the amount of money available for roads and bridges is directly proportional to the amount of funds raised by tolls, taxes, and business profits taxes. There are many other concerns regarding how much money is available for those expenses. The decisions made on who gets what is largely a cry for help by more and more people. The problem seems to come from who it is that needs the help the most! Where should we, as Representatives of the people, divide the limited resources that are extracted from we the people. Should we build roads and bridges or give the poor more EBT cards to by lottery tickets, booze and cigarettes. Should we pay for the education of our children or the fat cat salaries of university chancellors and staff who don’t teach only spend. Should we take money from the elderly who worked all their lives and saved their money so the person who comes here illegally can have free health care, not pay taxes and not follow our laws. Should we ask the business person who takes the risk of starting a business and hiring an employee to pay more for everyone’s health insurance and give most of their profits to the federal government so we can maintain the Cadillac retirement plans of the government unions and

Live Free or Die.


More Scratch E v ery year around this time, I answer the call to use my creative by Brendan Smith p r o c e s s Weirs Times Editor to try and help the State of New Hampshire. It seems, one of their most important avenues of revenue needs a new infusion of fresh ideas to keep it on its productive track. I’m sure that you have probably figured out by now that I am talking about scratch tickets. People take scratch tickets for granted and some even shun them. But it is important for me to give you the facts. Scratch tickets have a two-fold purpose. First, they are an essential source of funding for education in the state and, second, they are crucial in keeping the many convenience stores in the state afloat. In 1999, when I came up with my first idea for new scratch tickets, the New Hampshire lottery actually asked my permission if they could use one of my ideas. It was called “Frost Heaves and Pot Holes” and was in circulation for one season. They even told me, in a letter, that my scratch ticket was now hanging on their wall in their Hall of Fame. I have never gone to check out if this was true or not. The thought that the NH Lottery Commission might actually be spending time creating a Hall of Fame, made me nervous. But, every year since then, I have been coming up with new ideas to help the folks at the NH Lottery Commission have more time to spend on things like the Hall of Fame and less on actually coming up with new ideas for scratch tickets.

They haven’t used any of my ideas since. I have heard a rumor that they are working on a scratch ticket you can download and play on your smartphone but, it seems, they are still trying to figure out how to keep you from scratching the glass on your smart phone when you are constantly rubbing dimes on it. Here a few of my ideas for new scratch tickets. I would be remiss –whatever that means – if I didn’t go right to our new state marketing slogan “Live Free and Whatever.” I’m thinking that the top of the ticket would say “Live Free and…….” While you would scratch the squares underneath. If you matched three squares that were pre-approved words as designated by the NH Dept. of Travel and Tourism, you would win. If they weren’t pre-approved, tough luck. For example: Three “Live Free and Giggle’s” would win. I’m sure this scratch ticket would be a big hit and it would help justify the NHDTT’s big budget for their marketing campaign that no one is actually using. It’s a good time to resurrect one of my ideas from 1999 that never caught one. Multi-colored scratch tickets that have no winners but could be torn up and thrown at passing tour busses who have come a little early for the foliage season so that they would at least see some color. There isn’t much time left for this one but a presidential campaign scratch ticket would be a great idea. I have a lot of friends who are both Republicans and Democrats and we get into it sometimes about the upcoming election. A scratch ticket where, if you scratch three of one candidate you would win a prize. I’d gladly cash in my 3 Obamas if it meant extra bucks, and I’m sure the other side

would do the same with 3 Romney’s. Now that’s what I call bi-partisan and we could all use a couple more dollars. We all know that the only people who walk around with “I Love New Hampshire” clothes don’t actually live here, they are usually tourists and summer residents. So why not have an “I Love New Hampshire” scratch ticket? Savvy yearround residents would know better than to buy these, and the above-mentioned visitors would eat them up. Of course, there would be no winners in the bunch, but that would be our little secret. The piggy bank of the education fund would see some good cash. The prices of lottery tickets have gone up in New Hampshire over the years. We now have a $30 scratch ticket. Though I’ve never played this one, I understand it comes with a towel so you can wipe the sweat from your forehead while you are scratching. So, why not a million dollar scratch ticket? It wouldn’t see a lot of action but, then again, they’d only have to sell a couple. Worth a shot. Do you have a great idea for a scratch ticket for New Hampshire? If so, let me know and I will pass it along to the NH Lottery Commission. I’m sure they won’t do anything with it, but at least it will give the person who answers the emails something to do for a few minutes. As I write this I haven’t heard the results of the NH primary but next week I will be back with my new campaign strategy for Governor once I have learned my opponents.

On Saturday morning, at 8am, we met at the top of Franconia Notch. We then made the short drive to the Gale River Forest Road that begins just west of the intersection of Rte 3 and Trudeau Road. At the Garfield Trailhead we left our car and we all jumped into Sarah’s car and continued about two miles further to the Gale River Trailhead. Rachel and I love hiking with our friends. Sarah and Sharon drove up from New London that morning. Our other niece, Fran, and her family live in Boston’s North End and arrived on Friday night. Fran chose to miss a day at Echo Lake with her husband Mike and their three little daughters to join us (and no surprise Charlie went off rock climbing on Cannon). The parking lot was

already full of cars and people preparing to hike. We took no time gathering our packs and we hit the trail ahead of the crowd. The Gale River Trail is the most direct route to the AMC hut and Galehead’s summit, 5.1 miles one way. We rambled along at an easy pace as we chatted about the day ahead. The trail follows an old logging road at a gentle grade and it doesn’t get steep until you get near the hut. Due to the dry summer the water crossings had little flowing water so we had no difficulty crossing the North Branch of the Gale River. We found fresh evidence that the bear does it in the woods and in the middle of the trail! We were convinced it was a large bear. A little further up the trail at a muddy section we saw its very large paw prints!

We decided to make more noise and sing just in case there was a hungry bear nearby. Just before the intersection with the Garfield Ridge Trail we were caught by a group of hikers and we let them go by. But then they took at break at the intersection and it was our turn to hike past them. Outside the hut the trees have grown up enough to block the view of Garfield’s rocky summit so we enjoyed the view of the Bonds and of the Pemigewasset Wilderness. From the hut, the summit of Galehead is still half a mile away via the Frost Trail. We dashed up and tagged the cairn at the trail’s dead-end on the wooded summit. On our way back down the Frost Trail we stopped at the See patenaude on 24

Obama’s (Un)American Auto Bailout CHARLOTTE, N.C. -Cue

Broken Promises WASHINGTON

-- According to the pundits and politicians, this election is all about the economy. We’re all supposed to know that -- because we’re not by Oliver North stupid. That’s Syndicated Columnist why the Republicans had a “national debt clock” over their convention floor in Tampa, Fla., and the Democrats didn’t have one in Charlotte, N.C. To no one’s surprise, the Dems didn’t remind anyone in the Charlotte Convention Center that our national debt topped $16 trillion on the opening day of their conclave -- a 50 percent increase during the Obama presidency. The so-called mainstream media played along and focused instead on the change of venue for Barack Obama’s outdoor acceptance speech from the 74,000-seat Bank of America Stadium -- echoing O-Team claims that the move was weather-related. Republicans said the change was precipitated by fears of empty seats. It probably isn’t fair to expect the potentates of the press to

remind Americans that when he ran for president in 2008, Obama blasted President George W. Bush as “irresponsible” and “unpatriotic” for piling up $4 trillion in new debt during his eight years in office. When your children and grandchildren ask how all this could happen, you’re supposed to tell ‘em it’s “Bush’s fault.” At that point, they may really want to push Grandma off a cliff. As we heard from so many speakers in Charlotte, it’s also Bush’s fault that Obama’s 2009 promise to “cut the federal deficit in half” hasn’t been fulfilled. Then it was $1.4 trillion. Now it’s $1.2 trillion. But who’s counting. Blame Bush. The O-Team just needs more time. And then there’s unemployment. In 2009, when he was pushing his stimulus package through Congress, bailing out hand-picked car companies and “investing in green businesses,” the president told us he would cut unemployment to 6 percent. Now, 46 months into the Obama administration, it’s still higher than 8 percent. Mr. Hope and Change now says that he needs four more years to “fix America’s economic See north on 23

“Fanfare for the Common Man” and rev up the Government Motors engines. Wednesday is Great Ameriby Michelle Malkin can Auto BailSyndicated Columnist out Day at the Democratic National Convention. Party propagandists have prepared a primetime-ready film touting the “rescue’s” benefits for American workers. UAW President Bob King will sing the savior-in-chief’s praises. But like all of the economic success stories manufactured by the White House, the $85 billion government handout is a big fat farce. “I said I believe in American workers, I believe in this American industry, and now the American auto industry has come roaring back,” Obama bragged on the campaign trail. Here’s the inconvenient story they won’t tell you: GM is once again flirting with bankruptcy despite massive government purchases propping up its sales figures. GM stock is rock-bottom. Losses continue to be revised in the wrong direction. According to The Detroit News, “The Treasury Department says in a new report the government expects to lose more than $25 billion on the $85 billion auto bailout. That’s 15 percent higher than its previous forecast.” The claims that GM paid back its taxpayer-funded loans “in full” -- a story peddled in campaign ads narrated by Hollywood actor Tom Hanks -- were debunked by the Treasury Department’s TARP watchdog this summer. GM still owes nearly $30 billion of the $50

billion it received, and its lending arm still owes nearly $15 billion of the more than $17 billion it received. Bailout watchdog Mark Modica of the National Legal and Policy Center adds: “In addition to U.S. taxpayers anteing up, Canada put in over $10 billion, and GM was relieved of about $28 billion of bondholder obligations as UAW claims were protected. That’s an improvement of almost $90 billion to the balance sheet, and the company still lags the competition.” While the Obama administration wraps the auto bailout in red, white and blue, it’s foreign workers and overseas plants that are reaping redistributive rewards. GM has increased its manufacturing capacity in China by an estimated 55 percent after the bailout, according to industry watchers. GM’s Dan Akerson crowed at the Beijing auto show earlier this year: “One of our aims is to help grow a new generation of automotive engineers, designers and leaders right here in China.” The U.S. auto giant’s ventures with the Communist regime include Shanghai OnStar Telematics Co., Ltd.; GM China Advanced Technical Center; FAW-GM Light Duty Commercial Vehicle Co., Ltd., in Harbin, Heilongjiang; FAW-GM’s Changchun plant in Changchun, Jilin; FAWGM Hongta Yunnan Automobile Manufacturing Co., Ltd., in Qujing, Yunnan; and Shanghai Chengxin Used Car Operation and Management Co., Ltd. In Europe, the UAW’s appointee to the Government Motors Board of Directors, Steve Girsky, recklessly pushed the feds to hold onto GM’s failing German-based Opel AG. The Great American Auto Bailout has been subsidizing this hemorrhaging enterprise while Obama failed to deliver on his 2008 cam-

Quebec Vote Signals Political Uncertainty for Canada Political uncertainty shadows Quebec in the aftermath of a contentious provincial election campaign. Now by John J. Metzler in the wake Syndicated Columnist of the vote, the specter of separatism has re-emerged in the multi-ethnic Canadian province where the political rhetoric by the French-language focused Parti Quebecois could return economic instability and undermine fragile business confidence. In a tightly contested threeway race, voters went to the edge but stopped short of giving the separatist Parti Quebecois (PQ) a majority. Still the shadow has not passed, as the PQ shall now form a minority government albeit with a plurality of 32 percent of the vote. Emotions, tempers and tragically violence marred the end of the campaign with a shooting, killing a bystander, at the PQ’s victory rally in downtown Montreal. Now after nine years in power, Quebec’s federalist Liberal party had run out of ideas, steam, and luck. The final straw for longtime Premier Jean Charest was trying to institute lukewarm education reforms where University students would pay an additional $254 a year for their studies (that about the cost of a few sweatshirts, not classes at American Universities). Still some 84% of the total University costs are still paid by the taxpayers. Not surprisingly Quebec is the most indebted of all Canadian provinces; yet the PQ wishes to expand the layer cake of public benefits. Already tax payers face a combined 14.9 percent sales/ and value added tax to support a plethora of social services. Protests started in the Spring and before long radicals had seized the movement. The Premier called snap elections which in turn served to jumpstart opposition parties to get back into the fray to take on an unpopular and clueless government. Charest lost his own seat in the election, though the Liberals still got 31 MONTREAL

percent of the vote. . The province of Quebec holds a unique legacy and indeed political fault-line. The two founding peoples were the French and later English-speaking settlers. Quebec formed the keystone of New France in North America until the British toppled French rule in 1759 and steadily supplanted control over this part of Canada. To this day car license plates “Je Me Souviens” I remember” post a less than subtle reminder to romanticized history. As late as the 1960’s , French Canadians, though the majority, clearly faced discrimination. Such grievances planted the seeds of the early separatist movement. The Parti Quebecois has morphed from a self-styled defender of French cultural and linguistic rights into a political movement when it gained power in 1976 under the charismatic, if controversial leader, Rene Lesveque. The party was best known for its draconian linguistic legislation which has marginalized English and stigmatized anyone who does not view Quebec through blue colored glasses. Originally the PQ was populist with conservative, nationalist, and social reformers under one tent. Lysiane Gagnon of the La Presse newspaper wrote of Premier elect Pauline Marois, “She is the first PQ leader to anchor the party resolutely to the left, a sharp break with the tradition of building a large coalition of right and center-leaning sovereignists.” But it’s the PQ political rhetoric, which causes conflicts. In a blunt interview with Toronto’s Globe & Mail, Pauline Marois said the federal government in Ottawa will have to treat Quebec like a nation, not a province. “We won’t be satisfied with getting more powers, What we want is Quebec sovereignty.” She stressed her party would press for a referendum on the issue of what amounts to independence from Canada. Yet other eagerly awaited referendums on “sovereignty” from Canada fell flat in 1980 and 1995 when the majority of Frenchspeaking Quebeckers refused to take the final step of secession. Last week a CROP Poll survey

showed that merely 28 percent of Quebeckers would vote Yes if a referendum were held. Though a very hot political issue in the 1970’s, the long simmering embers of Quebec political separatism from Canada seemed

settled. Since the onset of the PQ rule in the late 1970’s large sectors of the Anglo business community left Montreal for Toronto; the legacy remains the emp-

Obama’s Dreams After reading Barack Obama’s book “Dreams from My Father,” it became painfully clear that he has not been searching by Thomas Sowell for the truth, Syndicated Columnist because he assumed from an early age that he had already found the truth -- and now it was just a question of filling in the details and deciding how to change things. Obama did not simply happen to encounter a lot of people on the far left fringe during his life. As he spells out in his book, he actively sought out such people. There is no hint of the slightest curiosity on his part about other visions of the world that might be weighed against the vision he had seized upon. As Professor Richard Epstein of the University of Chicago Law School has pointed out, Obama

made no effort to take part in the marketplace of ideas with other faculty members when he was teaching a law course there. What would be the point, if he already knew the truth and knew that they were wrong? This would be a remarkable position to take, even for a learned scholar who had already spent decades canvassing a vast amount of information and views on many subjects. But Obama was already doctrinaire at a very early age -and ill-informed or misinformed on both history and economics. His statement in “Dreams from My Father” about how white men went to Africa to “drag away the conquered in chains” betrays his ignorance of African history. The era of the Atlantic slave trade and the era of European conquests across the continent of Africa were different eras. During the era of the Atlantic slave trade, most of Africa was ruled by Africans, who sold some of their slaves to white men. See Sowell on 29

— ART GIRL — Surrealism Has Its Benefits by Kimberly B. Severance Contributing Writer

Politics aside, I love Surrealism! The poet Andre Breton is responsible for founding this revolutionary movement. He wrote numerous Manifestos about the philosophy, art and poetry of Surrealism. During WWII, the Nazi interest in suppressing original thinking (or opposing ideas) fueled the movement as well. Surrealism celebrates spontaneity, chance, juxtapositions and automatism. Perhaps you’ve heard of more current reincarnations. Books suggesting that writers pen morning pages (automatic writing) or use scribbling warm ups for drawing (automatic drawing). In fact, Surrealists believed logic and tradition are limiting to original thought and imagination. Surrealism is a goldmine for divergent thinking! The gentlemen of Surrealism were known to appreciate “la femme enfant.” In other words, Surrealist men loved the young ladies! The women of Surrealism went in another noteworthy direction. They created some astonishing self-portraiture and more. Perhaps you have heard of Frida Kahlo and her autobiographical paintings. Her difficult life included a horrific bus accident that changed her forever. To avoid boredom and ennui, the Surrealists played parlor games. These have evolved into games I bet you have heard of. Consider a game where the players add verbs, nouns and adjectives to an existing story. Reading it will reveal a hilarious story full of juxtapositions. Mad Libs! How about the game of Telephone? Whisper a sentence in your neighbor’s ear and the story evolves in every retelling. There are entire books on Surrealist parlor games.


ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY NO OBLIGATION TO BUY! “Spiral Transit” by Surrealist, Remedios Varo Uranga in 1962. It is on display at the Currier Museum in Manchester. Surrealism’s greatest legacy, in my educator/ed opinion, was to stretch imaginations. With an open mind, I suggest you check out Surrealism for yourself. To interest you in the writings of Andre Breton, this snippet: “In the sky despair was sweeping its great lovely calla lilies.” From Robert Desnos, “the song of nightingales in the woods of a tender green the tedium felt by little girls...” Marcel Duchamp created one of my favorite paintings titled: Nude Descending a Staircase. Another great by Max Ernst: Two Children are Threatened by a Nightingale. No doubt you know of Dali’s The Persistence of Memory. The accomplished wom-

en of Surrealism are many. Jacqueline Lamba Breton, wife of Andre, was an aquatic dancer in a fish tank when they met in Paris. Jacqueline made a variety of contributions. Another great is Kay Sage. My favorite of Sage’s paintings is at the Art Institute of Chicago. The Currier Museum of Art has at least two of Sage’s works in their collection. My alltime favorite is Mexican Surrealist Remedios Varo. Enjoy her image here of Spiral Transit. Exquisite!

10th Annual Brenda’s Ride with Friends Raises Over $16,000!

Over 25,000 New & Used Books Puzzles, Cards, & Gift Certificates

Fourteen-year breast cancer survivor Brenda Ganong recently hosted the Tenth Annual Brenda’s Ride with Friends: Fighting Cancer One Mile at a Time. The event was a huge success, raising $16,500 for the Oncology patients at LRGHealthcare! Brenda’s Ride started in 2003 with just 35 participants and has continued to grow with each passing year. The 225 or so bikers all convened at the Weirs Beach Lobster Pound the morning of August 18 and then set off for a beautiful ride around Lake Winnipesaukee. Lead by Alton and Laconia Police Department volunteers, the convoy arrived back at the Lobster Pound mid-day for a cookout, raffles, and live music courtesy of Axis and The Tom Dixon Band. “As a celebration of the 10th anniversary of Brenda’s Ride, we were thrilled with the outpouring of support from so many who came to ride and this take part in great event. Brenda’s Ride continues to thrive and knowing that we’re helping cancer patients right here in our own community is very rewarding,” explains Ganong.

14-year breast cancer survivor and organizer of the Brenda’s Ride with Friends event Brenda Ganong presents a check for $16,500 to Sherry Cesati, former Director of Oncology at LRGH. (L to R) Ginny Witkin; Sherry Cesati; John Ganong; Brenda Ganong; event co-organizer MaryEllen Nelson; and Becky Doherty.

Wow!! by Pete Grasso Contributing Writer

Well, a few weeks ago I expressed my opinion as to what I thought the September fishing was going to be like and as of right now (August 8th) I’m still not sure what it will bring. However, what I do know is that so far, this month, I have seen some of the BEST salmon & rainbows that I have seen all year. Daily limits have been the rule and fish in the 3 to 4 pound range have been the norm, NOT the exception! We’ve even seen a good number of fish over 4 pounds. All are fat and healthy and feisty as all get out. We’ve even had a few fish that clients have not landed and I wouldn’t even venture a guess as to

the size. They were BIG, that’s for sure. Single hook, #4 streamer flies have been just the recipe for success, with 90% of the fish coming in the first two hours of the trip. As a matter of fact, I have been using only 2 patterns of flies and only 2 rods (on the jig boxes). Yup, I’ll bet you would like to know what the patterns are‌well, sorry, I can’t disclose that. I guess the question still remains, “What will September bring?â€? Only time will tell. I just got an e-mail from friends in New York and they report that the salmon fishing is “On fireâ€? out there. This is one of the best years they have had in a very long time. That’s good news since we are heading out there in a couple of weeks. I really think we deserve a good year after putting up with last year’s disaster. I only hope we don’t have another hurricane while

we are there. If that’s the case, the fishing will be dead, but the “Partyâ€? will be going full tilt. I guess I’ve just about gathered all my gear for the trip. All I’ve got left to do is a bit of last minute shopping and pull the boat out. My boat has not been out of the water since March 23d and really needs a good scrubbing, which it will get. Rods & reels have been checked and new line put on. All terminal baits (Howie Flies and cut bait rigs) have had the hooks sharpened and new leaders put on. The downriggers have been out and back from their annual service and it appears that all systems are “GO.â€? I can’t begin to tell you how much I look forward to this trip. The only downside is the actual driving out and back. One way equates out to about 8 ½ hours of driving. We stop twice on the

Len Woodruff spat a stream of amber juice at the sawdust filled box on the floor. “Missed it, by gorry� chided Tim Tuttle. “Knowed I did,� responded Lem. “Consarned old maid.� While Webb had his back turned Abner snatched a couple more crackers from the barrel and gummed them toothlessly, his chin jabbing at his nose. “Had a cuzzin once wuz a ole maid,� commented Tim. “Spent every Chrissmus lookin’ fur doors what had mistletoe hung up on `em.

Corners - one night ata church social. Guess he never got grabbed and smacked like that afore. Left town that night and haint nobuddy seen him since. A man kin only take so much.� His cronies chuckled appreciatively. While they were sitting there stroking their chins and seeing who could come closest to the sawdust box, Ephriam Colby came in, walking pigeontoed and treading easy. He nodded to the group at the cracker barrel and minced over to the counter where Webb stood waiting. “Afternoon, Mr. Colby. What kin I do fer you?� “I need me a can of talcum powder, Webb,� responded Ephriam. “Glad to help yuh,� said Webb, and as he headed down the aisle, “Just walk this way.� “Gorry all mighty! If I could walk thet way I wouldn’t need your damned powder!� retorted Ephriam, trying testily to ignore the suppressed chortles from the vicinity of the cracker barrel. Things quieted down for a few minutes after Webb shot a sharp glance over in their direction. Lem Woodruff pursed his lips and aimed at the sawdust box again, “Missed it agin,� observed Tim Turtle.

Lem neared back, ready to swear, thought better of it and aimed another inaccurate stream at the box. An obvious city tourist jumped as the screen door slammed behind him and warily approached the group, all of whom were eying him curiously. He fixed his gaze on Abner Whoote and nervously stammered, “I’d like to get to Briarpatch Falls.� Abner gazed at him curiously. “I hain’t got no objection. You’ll hafta ask the others how they feel.� “What I mean is, can I take this road to the Falls?� Abner looked him up and down slowly. “Hain’t no need to,� he replied. “They already got a road.� The screen door banged behind the fleeing stranger again. While the others hawed and hee-heed, Abner took advantage of the situation to reach into the cracker barrel again. There was a loud snap, a roar of pain, and Abner leaped to his feet, one of Webb’s giant rat traps dangling from his bruised fingers. “Wonder how thet thing got ther’� drawled Webb as Abner held his hand under the water faucet. The cronies wondered, too, but not too much.

chance for us to showcase the rapidly growing wine industry that is occurring in this great state! I would love to make it a statewide event in the future.� All six Lakes Region wineries pride themselves on crafting quality New north from 8

problems.� Don’t forget; it’s Bush’s fault. Unfortunately for the nice people who support him, there are many other shattered vows that Obama can’t blame on his predecessor. His Inauguration Day assurance that he would make government accountable and “transparent so that the American people can know exactly what decisions are being made� didn’t happen. Nor did his campaign commitment to “televise the debate over health care.� The failure of his pledges to “get energy costs under control� and “achieve energy independence� by expanding “alternative sources� and “funding green energy initiatives� is reflected in the pain we’re feeling at the pump. And we still don’t know who in the Obama administration authorized the “Fast and Furious� gunrunning operation or why he or she did it. No one should be surprised that none of these issues made the news in Charlotte. What did make news was how quickly and deftly the Democrats moved to rectify two potentially damaging omissions from their party’s platform -- a

Hampshire traditional, fruit, and honey wines, many of which have received awards in national and international tastings. Most of the wineries grow their grapes in their own family vineyards, and all of them place the greatest emphasis on locally grown

fruit and honey, working closely with local farmers and pickers to find the best possible fruit with which to make their wine. Lakes Region wines are available in the wineries’ tasting rooms and restaurants, as well as at local wine shops and eateries.

70-page document outlining the goals for a second Obama administration. For reasons that have yet to be explained, the drafting committee removed the word “God� from the platform and then deleted the clause, “(Jerusalem) is and will remain the capital of Israel.� Both were in the 2008 edition. Apparently, the O-Team was hoping nobody would bother to read this year’s version. Bret Baier of Fox News did -- and began to ask about the omissions. Within hours, Republican nominee Mitt Romney said: “It’s unfortunate that the entire Democratic Party has embraced President Obama’s shameful refusal to acknowledge that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital. ... I find that one more example of Israel being thrown under the bus by the president.� A day later, delegates in Charlotte amended their platform to restore God and Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in the document. It’s not clear how the original error can be blamed on George Bush. By the time they pulled out of Charlotte, th e Obama campaign machine had to be hoping that no one else parses through the platform -- except the

20-plus references to Osama bin Laden’s being dead and al-Qaida’s being on the ropes. While they were putting God and Jerusalem back in, they should have deleted the sentence, “We have responsibly ended the war in Iraq.� Evidently, the O-Team is unaware that Iraqi air traffic controllers, trained by the United States and using radar and communications equipment provided by U.S. taxpayers, currently are facilitating flights from Iran to Syria. According to press reports -- and a senior U.S. intelligence officer -- the Iranian aircraft flying over Iraq are transporting weapons, Quds force special operations troops and intelligence personnel to prop up the brutal Assad regime in Damascus. Of course, that means that the Obama platform pledge “to hasten the end of the Assad regime� is a future broken promise. Just blame Bush.

We live in an area which is known for very cold winters. Our facility is nearly 7000 square feet in area. When we began to utilize the first unit we were amazed to see how even the heat was for the entire living room area. We ordered a second and a third unit which now warms the entire home. Much to our surprise we are saving over $250 a month and had the lowest expense for heating we have ever experienced here. I would heartily recommend your products to anybody who is interested in really nice, even heat in their home and also interested in saving on their utility expenses. Dennis Crystal, Troy, MT (Retired Airline Pilot)

Enclosed you will find printouts of our electric bill and gas/heating/cooking bills for 2007 - 2008. Our gas company, AmeriGas, stated that more money was saved than would show up because of the cost going up. We would turn the gas on early in the morning and turn it down to 60 degrees; We would use the EdenPURE ® heaters from then on and they provided such warmth and cozy heat. Many of our friends have informed me recently that they are going to purchase these heaters for their homes this winter. Gloria D. Smith, Boydton, VA (Retired Elementary Principal)

EdenPURE ranked #1 ®

Save $192 - biggest savings ever Richard Karn, North Canton, Ohio

I know why millions of Americans are saving on their heating bills with the EdenPURE ® Portable Infrared Heaters. And now you can save up to $192 on new EdenPURE ® models, our biggest savings ever, on heaters I personally rank #1 in North America. I was fortunate enough to attend the grand opening of the new EdenPURE ® factory in North Canton, Ohio. The new plant brought hundreds of new jobs back to Ohio and reversed the common practice of sending Midwest manufacturing jobs to China. American Labor, American Quality With over 3 million portable heaters sold EdenPURE® is the best selling portable infrared heating system in North America. However, like any classic, EdenPURE ® has dozens of would-be competitors who create Asian copies at low prices using cheap, foreign labor. Don’t be fooled by these imitations. Look for the EdenPURE® logo and the Made in North Canton, Ohio stamp. Save like millions of others on your heating bills and say “NO” to cheap foreign imitators. Save up to 49% on 2013 EdenPURE®s Now readers can save up to 49% ($192 the largest savings ever on new EdenPURE ®s). EdenPURE ® is not just the best-selling portable heating system in North America. As an EdenPURE ® owner I rank EdenPURE® #1 for quality, safety and efficiency. And now is the perfect time to save like never before on our expanded 2013 EdenPURE® line made in our brand new North Canton, Ohio facility. Stay Comfortable 365 Days a Year “Never be cold again” is the EdenPURE® promise. EdenPURE® provides you insurance against the cold all year long. Stay comfortable on those unseasonably chilly evenings no matter the season. I live in California but believe me it gets cold at night. Keep your expensive furnace turned down until it’s absolutely necessary. And if we are fortunate enough to experience a mild winter as many of us did in the Midwest last year, you keep your furnace off all season and save even bigger. New, More Efficient Models The engineers at EdenPURE® lis-

Never be cold again

How it works:


Heats floor to the same temperature as ceiling. 1. Electricity ignites powerful SYLVANIA infrared lamp.

2. The quartz infrared lamp gently warms the patented copper heating chambers.

3. The soft heat “rides” the humidity in the room and provides even, moist, soft heat ceiling to floor and wall to wall without reducing oxygen and humidity.

Richard Karn is a paid spokesperson for EdenPURE®.

As Al Borland on Home Improvement I was the man with all the answers. However, as Richard Karn I still look for money saving and efficient heating in my home. I have an EdenPURE® Infrared Portable Heater in my California home and like millions of others found it to be a super-safe, reliable source of portable heat all year long.

tened to their millions of customers and somehow managed to improve the #1 portable heater in North America. Through old fashioned American ingenuity the new EdenPURE® line is more efficient to save you even more money. The EdenPURE® Personal Heater now heats a larger area, an increase from 350 square feet to 500 square feet. That’s a 30% increase in efficiency! That’s American engineering at its best! We all know heating costs are expected to remain at record levels. The cost of heating our homes and apartments will continue to be a significant burden on the family budget. The EdenPURE ® can cut your heating bills and pay for itself in a matter of weeks, and then start putting a great deal of extra money in your pocket after that. Super Safe Infrared Heat Now remember, a major cause of residential fires in the United States is carelessness and faulty portable heaters. The choice of fire and safety

professional, Captain Mike Hornby, the EdenPURE ® has no exposed heating elements that can cause a fire. And a redundant home protection system that simply shuts the EdenPURE ® down if it senses danger. That’s why grandparents and parents love the EdenPURE®. The outside of the EdenPURE ® only gets warm to the touch so that it will not burn children or pets. And your pet may be just like my dog who has reserved a favorite spot near the EdenPURE ® . You see the EdenPURE® uses infrared heat. And just as pets enjoy basking in a beam of sunlight they try to stay close to EdenPURE®’s “bone-warming” infrared heat. The Health Secret is in the Copper EdenPURE ® ’s engineers have taken the original concept through revolutionary changes. EdenFLOW ™ technology uses copper heating chambers to take the energy provided by our special SYLVANIA infrared bulbs and distribute our fa-

mous soft heat evenly throughout the room. Now our copper isn’t ordinary. It’s 99.9% pure antimicrobial copper from an over 150 year old American owned company in Pennsylvania. Researchers have discovered copper as an antimicrobial is far more effective than stainless steel or even silver. That’s why our special antimicrobial copper is marked Cu+ and used in hospitals on touch surfaces. So your EdenPURE® heater is continuously pushing soft, healthy, infrared heat throughout your room.

THE WEIRS TIMES & THE COCHECO TIMES, Thursday, September 13, 2012 sowell from 9

European conquests in Africa had to wait until Europeans found some way to survive lethal African diseases, to which they lacked resistance. Only after medical science learned to deal with these diseases could the era of European conquests spread across sub-Saharan Africa. But the Atlantic slave trade was over by then. There was no reason why Barack Obama had to know this. But there was also no reason for him to be shooting off his mouth without knowing what he was talking about. Similarly with Obama’s characterization of the Nile as “the world’s greatest river.” The Nile is less than 10 percent longer than the Amazon, but the Amazon delivers more than 50 times as much water into the Atlantic as the Nile delivers into the Mediterranean. The Nile could not accommodate the largest ships, even back in Roman times, much less the aircraft carriers of today that can sail up the Hudson River and dock in midtown Manhattan. When Obama wrote that many people “had been enslaved only because of the color of their skin,” he was repeating a common piece of gross misinformation. For thousands of years, people enslaved other people of the same race as themselves, whether in Europe, Asia, Africa or the Western Hemisphere. Europeans enslaved other Europeans for centuries before the first African was brought in bondage to the Western Hemisphere. The very word “slave” is derived from the name of a European people once widely held in bondage, the Slavs. As for economics, Obama thought that Indonesians would be worse off after Europeans came in, used

up their natural resources and then left them too poor to continue the modern way of life to which they had become accustomed, or to resume their previous way of life, after their previous skills had atrophied. This fear of European “exploitation” prevailed widely in the Third World in the middle of the 20th century. But, by the late 20th century, the falseness of that view had been demonstrated so plainly and so often, in countries around the world, that even socialist and communist governments began opening their economies to foreign investments. This often led to rising economic growth rates that lifted millions of people out of poverty. Barack Obama is one of those people who are often wrong but never in doubt.

When he burst upon the national political scene as a presidential candidate in 2008, even some conservatives were impressed by his confidence. But confident ignorance is one of the most dangerous qualities in a leader of a nation. If he has the rhetorical skills to inspire the same confidence in himself by others, then you have the ingredients for national disaster.

and you suffer with back pain ... You may qualify for a back brace

way out for gas, coffee, stretch your legs and a potty call. The ride out is seasoned with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anticipationâ&#x20AC;? and that helps a lot. Also, we are heading west and the sun is at our back almost all of the way out. The ride back is another story. We usually leave about 6am and we are heading east. Ugh! Early morning hour and driving with the sun in your face is NOT a good combination. There is a tendency to become

sleepy. If I am riding alone, which has been the case the past few years, I have picked up an audio book for the homeward bound trip. I have found that this helps a lot and keeps my attention where it should be. The first stop on the way home is all the way (150 miles) back into Albany and we usually hit that rest area about 9 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 9:30am. Man, does that coffee taste good. Traffic to here is not that bad,

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at little or no cost to you!

paign promise to salvage plants like the one in GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hometown of Janesville, Wis. According to Forbes magazine, â&#x20AC;&#x153;GM Europe, comprised mostly of Opel and its sister brand, Vauxhall, lost $617 million in the first half of 2012, on top of a $747 million loss in 2011 and a $1.8 billion loss in 2010. In all, GM has lost almost $17 billion in Europe since 1999.â&#x20AC;? While Team Obama lambastes GOP rival Mitt Romney for outsourcing, Government Motors is now planning to invest $1 billion over the next five years -- not in America, but in Russia. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on top of $7 billion total in China, close to $1 billion in Mexico, and $600 million for a shirt sponsorship deal with Manchester United, the British soccer club. The DNC will put a rankand-file U.S. autoworker on stage to back up Big Laborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cheerleading of the deal. Rest assured, this human shield will not tell viewers how Obama and the union bosses colluded to pervert bankruptcy law and shaft some 20,000 nonunion Delphi auto parts workers. The forgotten victims saw their pensions erode by up to 70 percent; their health benefits disappeared. The first lady is radio silent. Obama consigliere Valerie Jarrett ducked questions about the Delphi injustice from The Washington Times here in Charlotte. Only in a fantasyland where America has 57 states, â&#x20AC;&#x153;JOBSâ&#x20AC;? is a threeletter word and bailouts are â&#x20AC;&#x153;achievementsâ&#x20AC;? does Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rescue math add up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs, not just in the auto industry, but in every industry,â&#x20AC;? Obama vows. God help the American worker.

Salome’s Stars Horoscope ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your ideas earn you the respect of your colleagues. But you’ll have to present some hard facts and figures if you hope to persuade those who make the big decisions to support you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Keep those bright Bull’s eyes focused on the project at hand. Avoid distractions. There’ll be lots of time for fun and games later. Expect to get welcome news this weekend. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You soon might have to decide about moving a relationship from its current status to another level. Don’t let anyone influence your decision. It must be yours and yours alone. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You finally can get off that emotional roller coaster and get back to focusing on your goals without interruptions through the rest of the week. A nice change is due by the weekend. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Trying to

make an impression on some people runs into a bit of a snag at first, but it all works out. An old and almost forgotten personal matter once again needs attention. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A rise in your energy level helps you finish an especially demanding task. Take some time now to spend with family and friends before starting a new project. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) This is a good time to re-establish contact with trusted former associates who might be able to offer good advice regarding that career change you’ve been contemplating. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your resourcefulness combined with a calm, cool approach help you work your way out of a knotty situation and avoid a potentially serious misunderstanding. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A calm, quiet period allows you to recharge your energies. But you’ll soon be ready to saddle up and gallop off in pursuit of your goals.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Family matters need your attention. Check things out carefully. There still might be unresolved tensions that could hinder your efforts to repair damaged relationships.

Bring on Monday Night football. -Jean Schoenweiss, To this day, the dry county candidate wonders why he never got elected. -Bob Jaskolka, Brunswick, OH.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) It’s a good time to take a stand and show as much passion on your own behalf as you do when arguing for the rights of others. You might be happily surprised by the reaction. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You bring sense and sensitivity to a confusing situation. Things soon settle down, leaving you free to enjoy a weekend of fun and relaxation with friends and family. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a talent for being able to perceive possibilities where others see only problems.

Occupying is thirsty work -Diane Godbout, Laconia, NH.

and mountains to create this country did not ask where is my governments help. They built the roads and bridges, the dams and the railroads. They fought the wars and lost their loved ones and gave what they had to give. The people did not say where is our government, they said who is my neighbor and how can I help. We are surely going to lose our country if our only concern is fixing the bumpy road that benefits only the few and not the many. Should we be like the federal government who

will spend billions to prop up failing banks and poorly run businesses like: Solyndra, Beacon Power, Abound Solar, Amoix Solar, Spectra Watt, Eastern Energy, ALL went bankrupt and also who were big Obama campaign contributors! Should we take from our childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future and burden them with great expense because we were not willing to slow down over the bumps. There are many roads and bridges in this state that will get fixed in time. As economics progress and this state gets stronger and more people get back to work and help pay the taxes and the tolls there will be more money. In my business when something breaks, I fix it. I replace equipment only when if it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fixed and I can afford it. I get 400,000 or more miles out of my cars and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over a lot of bumpy roads!

James Montgomeryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hometown Heroesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Blues Festival At Rochester Opera House â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Saturday, October13th at 7pm â&#x20AC;&#x201D;

Blues legend James Montgomery headlines the Hometown Heroesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Blues Festival at the Rochester Opera House on Saturday, October 13 at 8pm (Doors 7pm). Montgomery â&#x20AC;&#x153;brings it on homeâ&#x20AC;? for a fantastic blues concert on our stage with Brothers in Arms and Touch of Gray, featuring singer/ songwriter Chris Cartier. Since Montgomery formed his band in Boston in 1970, he has recorded six albums and toured with dozens of major artists including Aerosmith, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, the Allman Brothers and Steve Miller. Montgomery learned blues harmonica firsthand from the mastersâ&#x20AC;ŚJames Cotton, John Lee Hooker and Jr. Wellsâ&#x20AC;Śat the legendary Chessmate Club in Detroit. Recently, Montgomery found an unexpected visitor in his dressing room after a concert at Trax in New York City. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey man, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cool stuff. Show me.â&#x20AC;? Mick Jagger wanted harmonica lessons from a master. During the past 42 years Montgomeryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s band has been a springboard for many musicians careers.
