which itself has brought joy to millions around the world. Bob Montana, the creator of the beloved Archie comics, passed away at the young age of fifty-five in 1975, but his memory has lived on in Meredith and as the town was

approaching its 250th birthday, it seemed fitting to honor Montana for his many contributions to the town. The idea was a life-sized bronze statue of Archie himself, sitting on a park bench. Something to be See ARCHIE on 36

On Thursday, August 9th at Noon, the sun shone brightly in downtown Meredith as a crowd estimated at 200plus gathered to honor a man who brought a lot of

sunshine himself to the New Hampshire town. The center of attention this Thursday, was a dark sheet which covered the new addition to Meredith’s Community Park. Underneath was a replica of cultural icon created by this same man,

Find yourself in Wolfeboro on a Saturday evening? If so, you might find gallery doors open and local artist pop-ups situated outside many of the local breweries and restaurants. You can hear singer-songwriters performing from inside the galleries and watch street performers juggle and sashay their way up and down Main Street—it is a festival! The Wolfeboro Arts Festival occurs the last Saturday of every month this summer. If you happen to be in town between 5:00 and 7:30 you will find a multitude of different ways to enjoy the arts. The festival is spearheaded by Brittany Boles, who owns Magical Yoga, a gallery space and yoga studio located in downtown Wolfeboro. This is Brittany’s first year leading the festival, which is an expansion on the pre-

viously popular annual Wolfeboro Art Walk. When I visited Brittany at her studio, there were a variety of different paintings on the walls and charcoal drawings. All were created by local artists, many of whom are friends of Brittany’s. She also hired local artists to paint the walls of her studio—one has a fire-like theme featuring an abstract mixing of reds and yellows, while another is more ethereal, with soft pastels that form colored clouds. I asked her how she came to be in charge of the festival, she said, “It used to be the art walk. Sandy Martin of Sandy Martin gallery reached out to me in the winter and she asked me if I would like to be part of the art walk this year. Eventually she persuaded me to take it over because, she said, we needed new energy.” When the local gallery owners met at their annual meeting Brittany

Outsourcing Inconsistent To The Editor: As a Conservative Independent I agree with some of Trump’s domestic policies, but Trump is two faced concerning foreign trade. President Trump harassed and threatened Harley Davidson because they are moving their foreign production overseas in response to the imposition of the Trump tariffs. He has railed against other U.S. companies who have moved facilities to foreign countries. Trump’s trade war with China might eventually even out the trade imbalance with China, but it might lead to China establishing trade deals with other countries and the permanent loss of revenue to U.S. companies and farmers. Trump has businesses all over the world producing his products. Trump shirts have been made in China, Bangladesh, Honduras, and Vietnam. Some of Trump’s suits came from Indonesia. His eyeglasses are from China. Some furniture emanates from Turkey. Trump flags and hats are made in China. Many of the Trump hotel products manufactured overseas, include pens, shampoo, body wash, moisturizers, shower caps, laundry bags, pet products and bath towels from China. Trump’s outsourcing is inconsistent with his attacks on U.S. companies

Pedestrian Danger in Meredith To The Editor: Every driver will get distracted at some point when they are driving, it’s just a matter of when. Especially in a busy area, like downtown Meredith, something is bound to catch a driver’s eye and cause them to lose focus on what matters most; safe driving. When travelling on Route 3 in downtown Meredith, there is a pedestrian crossing every few yards which requires every driver’s full attention while going through this area. Regardless of how cautious drivers are while passing through this area, the nature of this situation constantly puts pedestrians at risk and it is just a matter of time before an incident occurs. Instead of trying to prevent the constant issue of distracting driving through social media posts and posters, we need to take a new approach and add features to the side of the road to regain drivers’ attention. At every crosswalk in this area, the town needs to put in new pedestrian crossing signs with blinking lights in order to catch

the attention of drivers and signal them to slow down. This addition will bring the much needed attention to the crosswalks in this busy area and assure the safety of pedestrians when crossing the street. These signs will also be important to the safety of pedestrians when crossing the road at night. Being a resident in Meredith and passing through this area often, there have been several times where I have been driving through this area at night and have struggled to see people waiting to cross. There is little lighting at the points where pedestrians wait to cross, putting them in a dangerous situation that can easily be avoided with the addition of flashing lights in these areas. . Studies from the University of Massachusetts Amherst show, “Drivers were significantly more likely to yield to pedestrians when in pavement lights were flashing than when no in pavement lights existed”. Adding blinking pedestrian crossing signs to this area will alert drivers when there are people waiting to cross and assure that they can cross safely. This will make both the drivers and pedestrians more comfortable while in this area and reduce the risk that is currently so high. The way the pedestrian crossing signs work is similar to a crosswalk at an intersection with traffic See MAIL BOAT on 41

Exhausting Work

by Brendan Smith Weirs Times Editor

Just thinking about it makes me tired. The campaign TV ads have been appearing more frequently and the large carboard mailers have started to fill the mailboxes, so I know I have to get to work. One good thing is that being the only candidate who is running as the gubernatorial candidate for the Flatlander Party, I don’t have to go through the tedious process of a primary, but there still is plenty of work to do. (By the way, as I have often explained to those of you unfamiliar with the term, a gubernatorial candidate is running for governor, not guber. I know, I know, doesn’t make sense to me either.) A primary is where members of the same party try to figure out which one will represent them in the main election in November. There could be as many as five or six or more, or as few as just two. How a primary works is simple. All of the candidates spend a few months telling voters in their party how awful the other candidates from their party are. They will search for embarrassing information from their pasts to use against them. They will talk about how stupid their ideas and how they would be the worst possible choice to represent the party in the general election. Then, once primary is over, all of the losers will get together and praise the

nominee as a wonderful person who is the best person to represent the party and that they stand behind them percent one-hundred percent. I don’t have to go through this as I am the only one running from my party, but I still have to start getting my act together because, as soon as the other parties figure out which candidate in their party won by making their fellow opponents look worse than them, then they will start focusing on whoever else is running from the other parties. The one thing the Flatlander Party doesn’t have, which is crucial to winning an election, is a party chairperson. One of the main reasons we don’t have one is because of our budget. A party chairperson is not cheap, and for good reason. The job of the party chairperson during the primary is to make sure that negative things are being said against all the candidates from the other party while the candidates from their own party are using all of their time and energy saying awful things about each other. Someone needs to keep their eyes on the ball and that costs money. While the candidates for, say, congress, only have to worry about the other candidates for congress, the party chairperson has to focus on all the races and find terrible things to say about all of the candidates from the other party who are running for a slew of offices both on a national and state level. To make it a little easier, they will try and figure out which candidate from the other party has the best chance of winning and then focus all of their negative energy on that person. Still, that’s a lot of people to find bad stuff about.

Sometimes they have to go all the way back to something the candidate did or said that wasn’t so nice when they were in college or even high school. It’s exhausting work. Once the primary is over, the party chairperson’s job gets much easier as now there is only a handful of candidates from the other party that they have to attack on a daily basis and most of the bad stuff has already been unearthed. The party chairperson also has to counter the attacks made against their own candidates by candidates from the other party who are using information first brought to light by the candidates in his own party during the primary. It’s complicated. Of course, social media has made this job a little easier. The party charperson can now attack candidates from the other party using forums such as Twitter. They don’t even have to put on their suits and ties and try to get on TV to attack others. They can do it, sitting in their pajamas at home with a cup of coffee (or beverage of their choice). Not having a party chairperson means that I have to do a lot of this work myself. Of course, I will have a little help from a few others in the Flatlander Party, but there aren’t many of us. It really is a lot of work digging up dirt on others while deflecting your own dubious past. I’m tired just thinking about it. Brendan will be at Moultonborough Library on Thursday, August 23 at 7pm. He will telling some Flatlander Tales as well as reading from his new book. “I Only Did It For The Socks and Other Tales of Aging.”

Oklahoma’s Wretched Record On Wrongful Convictions “Frontier justice” costs too many citizens of all races, creeds, and backgrounds their freedom and their lives. In the old days by Michelle Malkin of the Wild Syndicated Columnist West, vigilantes worked outside the judicial system to punish rivals regardless of their guilt or innocence. Today, outlaws operate inside the bureaucracy to secure criminal convictions at all costs. Oklahoma -- the notorious home of “Hang ‘Em High” executions -- stands out for its decades of trampling due process, subverting public disclosure, perpetuating forensic junk science, manufacturing false accusations and enabling official misconduct. Since 1993, 35 wrongfully convicted Oklahomans have been officially exonerated, according to the National Registry of Exonerations; 15 inmates have been freed in the past decade. Almost half of the state’s exonerees had been convicted of murder; 17 percent for sexual assault. The reign of prosecutorial terror and forensic error by the late Oklahoma County District Attorney Bob Macy and rogue Oklahoma City police department crime lab analyst Joyce Gilchrist resulted in at least 11 wrongful convictions, according to the Innocence Project. Those victims included: Exoneree Curtis McCarty, who was sent to death row for a stabbing and strangulation murder after Macy withheld evidence and Gilchrist falsified blood evidence and destroyed hair evidence. Exoneree Robert Lee Miller Jr., another death row inmate falsely convicted of two rapes and two

murders based on a coerced confession and atrocious forensic misconduct involving junk analysis of semen, blood, saliva, human hair and dog hair. Exoneree Jeffrey Pierce, who was falsely convicted of rape in 1986 based on Gilchrist’s misconduct and won a $4 million settlement from Oklahoma City. Exoneree David Bryson, who was wrongfully convicted of kidnapping and rape and freed after 18 years in prison when Gilchrist’s destruction of evidence was discovered and follow-up DNA testing excluded him as the attacker. Law enforcement and legal insiders alike have shared stories with me about good ol’ boys club corruption that crosses party lines in the Sooner State. Government prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys routinely cut deals. Judges bend over backwards to preserve “harmless errors” caused by flawed investigations, faulty verdicts and clerical incompetence. Police brass retaliate against whistleblowers. And, according to one veteran cop, Oklahoma City is a hopeless “nest of incestuous nepotism.” Unlike neighboring Texas, where Dallas County prosecutors founded the first conviction integrity unit in the country (sparking the creation of 30 such agencies nationwide), not a single Oklahoma district attorney’s office has established an official mechanism to review tainted convictions. Nor does Oklahoma have anything like the Texas Forensic Science Commission, which investigates professional misconduct by crime labs and other entities that conduct forensic analyses used in criminal proceedings. The Texas panel was created in the wake of the infamous scandal at the Hous-

The Importance of Original Intent The resignation of Justice Anthony Kennedy from the Supreme Court kicked off a firestorm of debate and by Isaac Hadam controversy as his resignation Contributing Writer gave President Trump the opportunity to appoint another justice to the highest court in the land. Justice Kennedy’s resignation has been bemoaned by Democrats who viewed him as a key swing vote on the social issues. Republicans however, have rejoiced at the possibility of replacing Kennedy with someone who isn’t as likely to swing to the liberal side of the court. President Trump ended the suspense with the announcement that he had nominated Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. This has started a heated confirmation battle, although it is almost certain that Kavanaugh

will be confirmed. However, what has been lost in the politics of this debate is the importance of the Constitution and how it is interpreted by the courts. The Supreme Court’s job is to interpret the law and, while doing so, to insure that the Constitution is being upheld. The best way for judges to uphold the Constitution is to insure that they interpret our founding document literally. This is know as “original intent,” which means that the Constitution should be interpreted as written and if there is any doubt in the meaning of any part of the Constitution, then one should look at what the authors of the part in question intended it to mean. In this article, we will briefly look at why it is both factual and logical to view the Constitution under the scope of original intent, rather than through the scope of a “loose interpretation.” Loose interpretation of the Constitution is the view held by many on the left, and this is the idea that the See HADAM on 41

Is Collusion Criminal? In the last two weeks, the Trump administration has begun to make a rather interesting legal argument: Collusion isn’t criminal. President by Ben Shapiro Trump’s lawyer Syndicated Columnist Rudy Giuliani made this argument on television; Trump repeated it on Twitter. But is it true? Technically, collusion isn’t a crime. There is no statutory definition of “collusion”; the closest we could come is “conspiracy.” So let’s be more specific: Would it be criminal activity if the Trump campaign solicited opposition research from the Russian government? The short answer: Not clearly, unless the campaign was also involved in underlying criminal activity, such as hacking the Democratic National Committee or the Hillary Clinton campaign. UCLA professor of law Eugene Volokh explained in the Washington Post last year that barring such activity, it seems violative of the First Amendment to prevent campaigns from talking with foreign citizens about opposition research on other candidates. After all, Clinton’s team paid Fusion GPS to create an opposition-research dossier, much of the material provided by a foreign citizen, Christopher

Steele. Even exchanging information with the Russian government wouldn’t clearly violate the law, if Volokh is correct. Now, this doesn’t mean that the Trump campaign is in the clear. It just means that Trump’s opponents will have to prove far more than they’ve proved so far. All of which means that the slim hook on which the Democratic hopes of a Trump criminal charge are based grows even more tenuous. Now Democrats are banking on the possibility of an obstruction charge emerging against Trump: perhaps, they say, Trump has attempted to shut down special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation in some way. After all, he’s constantly tweeting about the myriad evils of the so-called “witch hunt.” But even here, the statutory basis for such a charge is thin: There are provisions covering destruction of evidence or threatening to influence a “pending judicial proceeding,” but obstruction generally requires an active attempt to impede -and the Mueller investigation, according to the testimony of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, hasn’t actually been impacted by Trump’s fulmination. The best hope for Democrats is a perjury charge against Donald Trump Jr. They hope that Trump Jr. lied when he said that his father didn’t know about the June

2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya; perhaps, they think, they can charge Trump Jr. with something to get him to flip on his father. But so far, there’s been no evidence that Trump

knew about that meeting, and Trump continues to deny it. More and more, the Democratic hope for a deus ex machina to oust Trump seems like a chimerical fancy. (Even if Trump See SHAPIRO on 41

Ignorant Sanders Sen. Bernie Sanders is all over the internet! New York Magazine says he is “quietly building a digital media empire.” by John Stossel calls Syndicated Columnist it “one of the most powerful progressive media outfits in America.” This matters because bettors rank Sanders one of the top four Democratic presidential contenders. I resent Sanders’ “empire” because it pushes bad ideas, yet his videos are viewed more often than mine. His videos have been seen almost a billion times. Some are just recordings of him making noisy speeches, ranting about how Republican policies hurt Americans. For example, “Tens of thousands of them will die” if Obamacare is repealed. (He ignores the fact that more will live if the economy is allowed to grow.) Other Sanders videos are edited, produced pieces, much like videos that I make. One powerful one begins with a President Trump speech where the president recites the song “The Snake,” in which a woman nurses a snake back to health -- only to have it bite her. “You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in!” shouts the president. He was arguing against loose immigration controls. But the video cuts to Trump calling criminals “animals,” and an “expert” says Trump is using “the same kind of language that the Nazis used.” The video never mentions that when Trump said “animals,” he

was talking about MS-13. A recurring Sanders video theme is that Trump supporters are “faces of greed” who scheme to get even richer by doing things like abolishing the estate tax. Sanders never mentions that the estate tax taxes money that had already been taxed; it’s double taxation. He could still argue against repealing it, but he ought to be fair. Many Sanders videos demand that government make college free. His staff interview themselves. May Ayad, a Sanders associate media producer, tells us, “It’s not just one or two people saying, ‘I can’t afford to go to college.’ This is like the majority of college students in the entire nation!” Winn Decker, research intern for the Senate Budget Committee, whines, “Student loans kept me from doing things like purchase a home.” Sanders staff assistant Terrel Champion tells viewers, “Somebody has to foot the bill. The government should assume that responsibility!” There’s no mention of how existing government subsidies already raised the price of tuition, enabling it to grow faster than the rate of inflation. There’s also not a peep about how Sanders’ own wife bankrupted a college in Vermont. It’s just: Government must pay more! Government should take responsibility for your health care, too, says a Sanders video that describes MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi as a “Canadian capitalist” who says, “Nowhere on Earth is there a free health insurance market that works.” The video looks like a debate between Velshi and Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, but it’s edited so

The New Hampshire Historical Marker Program is celebrating its 60th year having the first markers installed in Pittsburg, Charlestown, Amherst and New Castle in 1958. New Hampshire’s newest addition to the Historic Marker Program commemorates the life and achievement of Frances Glessner Lee (18781962). The Glessner family originated in Chicago, Illinois where patriarch John Glessner was the co-founder of the International Harvester company. Not unlike other wealthy businessmen of the time, John Glessner enjoyed spending his summers in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. He purchased the farm which is now known as the Rocks Estate in Bethlehem, NH. Frances Glessner Lee, considered the “Mother of Forensic Science” created miniature dioramas depicting actual crime scenes. Her adage “Convict the guilty, clear the innocent, and find the truth in a nutshell.” was the focus of her passion. Interestingly, Frances Glessner Lee did not begin pursuing this interest until she was in in 50’s. It was not until the passing of her father who believed that it was

“beneath a Glessner to pursue crime”. In her lifetime, Frances Glessner Lee created 20 dioramas that were made to the scale of 1 inch to 1 foot. Of the 20 dioramas, 19 are in the possession of the University of Maryland Medical Examiner’s Office and still used today for forensic science instruction. One diorama is believed to have been destroyed and one is located at the Bethlehem Heritage Society on loan from the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests at The Rocks Estate. This is the only diorama that is available for public viewing. Recently, the nineteen surviving dioramas known as “Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death” were reunited at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington DC. They were on display from October 2017 to January 2018. The marker was sponsored by Bethlehem resident and local author Michael Bruno of Cruising New Hampshire History: A guide to New Hampshire’s historical roadside markers.

The Simpsons Of Nottingham, NH by Robert Hanaford Smith, Sr. Contributing Writer

It was the summer of 1747 in Nottingham,New Hampshire,and young Andrew Simpson narrowly escaped either being killed or, more likely, kidnapped by Indians. The boy, who was in his early teens,had come to Nottingham from Boston around seven years earlier with his father, also named Andrew, his mother, Elizabeth, and his siblings. The elder Andrew Simpson had come to Boston from Scotland in 1725,had never attended school, but had learned the trade of a weaver. The village of Nottingham had been built with a meeting house on a common area in the center of town called Nottingham Square with ten acre lots for settlers marked out around it. Mr. Simpson bought one of these lots and built a log house upon it. There were reports of hostile Indian raids in the area of Nottingham during the early days of 1747 which made the people ill-at -ease. Matthew Nealey had built a large two-story house near the Square and the townspeople used it as a fort or garrison for protection from the hostile Indians. The Meeting House had also been constructed so as to serve as a garrison. In that year of 1747 the town officials had sent a letter to the Governor of the Province asking for military men to be sent to help protect the people.

A monument in Nottingham Square. During the day the men would gather into groups and farm their land, placing their guns together in a selected field with a sentry to guard them. As the summer went on and the Indians appeared more peaceful, the women began to be out and about more, going to their homes to perform certain duties. One day near the first of September Mrs. Simpson had no bread for her family so she took her son Andrew and went to their house to bake bread. She gave Andrew a knife and sent him outside to cut cornstalks in an area that was close to the house. When he was working young Andrew caught sight of two men entering the house and thinking that some neighbors had come to visit,he started running towards the house, but he was barefoot and accidently smashed his foot into a stone, severely injuring one of his toes. The boy fell to the ground,and,being in pain,lay there sobbing. After he regained his composure he continued to lay there, unobserved, and went to sleep. The men who entered the house were not friendly neighbors, but two Indians

whose names were Sabateus and Plasaway. When Elizabeth Simpson saw them she tried to jump out of an open window which she had removed, possibly to allow circulation of air needed as a result of the fireplace (or stove?) being heated in the summer to

BOSOX STRETCH DRIVE Well, so much for that decisive season-ending Fenway Park series against the New York Yankees. That recent four-game sweep by the Red Sox over the Yankees pretty much guaranteed the American League East pennant for the Boston—greatly reducing the value of those last three Fenway games for scalpers and ticket agencies. But remember that the Yankees overcame a 14 game Red Sox lead in 1978. As Yogi Berra famously said, it’s not over until it’s over. The Red Sox last laughed their way to first place in 1946, unbothered by any semblance of a pennant race. Not having to sweat out a challenge in 2018 would be luxurious. The all-time Major League win record is 116, shared by the 1906 Chicago Cubs and the 2001 Seattle Mariners. Maybe Boston could challenge that. If the Red Sox are close to 116 when the Yankees come to town to end the season, then maybe the scalpers can still make some money! Re: THOSE 1906 CUBS From alert reader Greg Sorg of Franconia: “At a similar point in 1906, the Chicago Cubs had, following a loss, the exact same record the Red Sox had: 68 wins and 30 losses, for a magnificent won-lost percentage of

Something for which the Red Sox to aspire?” That was certainly an impressive run by the Cubs back in 1906, shortly before they had that bad century. But it’s worth pointing out that the winners of the 1906 World Series were the Chicago White Sox, the famed “hitless wonders” who had a team batting average of .230 that season.

Use Technology To Simplify Your Home Buying Process (BPT) - While spring is typically the busiest period in real estate, particularly for families looking to get in to a new home before the school year starts, the fall months have become increasingly active for those who have more flexibility or are looking for a good deal. With increased competition in many cities around the country, finding ways to simplify the home buying process while saving money is top of mind for potential home buyers. Many consumers are seeking real estate brokerages that make the home buying process less stressful by providing access to tech-based tools,

data and the guidance of smart, local agents. “Buying a home is typically the most expensive purchase most people will make, and people are choosing brokerages that offer the right tools and data to help inform their decisions and make the process more efficient,” said Dario Cardile, Vice President, Growth Marketing at “Savvy home buyers are utilizing technology and data to inform their home search, but are also demonstrating that they value working with an expert local agent who can offer on-the-ground expertise and help them get the best deal.”

Cardile offers these tips for ways potential home buyers can utilize technology to simplify the real estate process. * Ensure that your finances are in order. To purchase the home of your dreams you’ll need the right loan. So before you begin your search, request a free annual copy of your credit report from the government-authorized AnnualCreditReport. com. Pay attention to the scores in your report, as the better your scores, the more likely you are to receive favorable terms and interest rates on your loan. See SIMPLIFY on 18

‘Arriving at Wolfeborough’ with a 1930s view. One of the works artist Peter Ferber will be be discussing in his presentation “Picturing The Past” at the Lake Winnipesaukee Museum on Saturday, August 25th at 11am. T h e L a k e Winnipesaukee Museum will host Lakes Region artist Peter Ferber and his presentation “Picturing the Past” on Saturday, August 25th, at 11 AM. Ferber will describe his process in recreating historic scenes and include a step-by-step discussion of a recent commissions of Sanbornton Square and Wolfeboro. While watercolor has been his primary medium, he also does work in oil, acrylic and cut-paper. Growing up in New England, Peter Ferber came to have a real love of landscape and the built environment, especially the centuriesold homes and buildings found throughout our region.. He hopes that his paintings spur recognition of the need to value and preserve the natural and historic assets that define the character of our communities. After graduating from college with a degree in studio

art, Ferber began a freelance career as a commercial designer and illustrator. One of the more interesting aspects of his work was in architectural renderings for historic restoration projects. These included the state capitols of Tennessee and New York, as well as other public buildings and historic sites in New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Ferber came into his own as an artist when he began doing paintings of the Lakes Region of New Hampshire, where he had spent all childhood his summers on Lake Winnipesaukee. His love and deep feelings for the area give a wonderful spirit and authenticity to his work, which resonates with many who share the same love for this beautiful area. For the past twenty years, he has had two one-man shows each year at The Art Place gallery in Wolfeboro. He is best known locally for

an annual poster done for the New England Antique Boat Society over the last 25 years. Many area organizations (including the Castle in the Clouds and the Libby Museum) have been able to use his paintings, prints and posters as a fundraising vehicle for worthy causes. Programs focusing on the Lakes Region and New Hampshire history are held at the Lake Winnipesaukee Museum throughout the summer season. The museum, open to the public Wednesday – Saturday from 10 AM to 4 PM, is located on Route 3 in Weirs Beach, next to Funspot.

We have just gotten beyond one of the longest stretches of hot humid weather since the 1970’s. During this endurance test, folks swelter in the heat and thirst builds. They say that when you realize you’re thirsty, you are already dehydrated. Lots of bottled water is the best thing to keep close by. But at the end of a long hot summer day, you may head to the fridge for a frosty brew… But wait; there are alternatives that may not fill you up with carbs and calories as much as those beers you’re reaching for! White Claw Hard Seltzer is produced White Claw Seltzer Works in Chicago, Illinois. Claiming to be the purest hard seltzer in the world is a pretty big deal. But if you look at the reasons why people are gravitating to White Claw, you might want to take notice. The name comes from large waves approaching the beach, where when there is a series of three waves together, surfers know not to mess with these giants for if they do, they will wipeout. White Claw uses the process of fermenting cane sugar to derive the 5% alcohol, then filtering the result up to seven times for each 12 oz can. Sparkling water and natural fruit flavors are then added. The result is a clear sparkling beverage that refreshes. Glutenfree and containing only 100 calories and 2 grams

Most salmon anglers on Lake Winnipesaukee look forward to two very distinct times of year for good salmon fishing, early spring and late summer. The salmon season runs from April 1st through September 30th each year. Ask most any salmon angler when the best months to catch salmon are and you’ll undoubtedly be told April The author with one of many fat salmon he brought aboard

his boat.

This salmon was caught and released before the sun rose above the tree line. through May, and midAugust through September. Salmon are cold water fish that spawn in the fall. Driven by length of daylight, water temperature, and food, salmon begin feeding voraciously to prepare for their fall spawning runs, making them prime targets of trolling anglers from around the country. This time of year, the water is about as warm as it will get. The water just below the thermocline layer is around 55-degrees, the preferred temperature for landlocked salmon.

Even though the days are still warm, they’re getting shorter and sunlight has less time to warm the lake water. Early in the morning, just before the sun hits the water, the salmon will move up in the water column and feed on smelt that are feeding on plankton. As the sun hits the water, the smelt (and salmon) move deeper toward cooler more stable water temperatures. Such was just the case on a recent trip of mine. I left Roberts Cove Basin Marina in the dark and headed north toward

one of my favorite trolling spots. Just before I arrived I decided to stop early and put lines in the water on downriggers, because I was marking a lot of fish at around 25-feet deep. I got my first line in, which I’ll refer to as line one, and was in the process of setting the second, which I’ll call line two, when my first line popped out of the downrigger with a fish on it. It was a fat and healthy salmon, around 22-inches long. I finished setting line two and went to reset line one when line two tripped with a healthy plump rainbow trout. This routine continued for the better part of ninety minutes until just as quickly as it began, it was over. I trolled at the same depth for about another thirty minutes with no bites, so I decided to drop down to 45-feet, the depth that has been producing fish for a couple of weeks now. I freespooled the reel on line two and dropped the downrigger ball to 40-feet. Before I could reel down to load the rod, a fish grabbed it an jumped out of the water behind the boat. It was a big See MOORE on 39

World War I Poison Gas the Topic at next Wright Museum Lecture On Tuesday, August 21 from 7 to 8 p.m, Marion Girard Dorsey will offer insight into poison gas attacks in World War I and their impact beyond the battlefield. Part of the Wright Museum’s Lecture Series, sponsored by Ron Goodgame and Donna Canney, the lecture is entitled, “Once Adrift: World War I Poison Gas and Its Legacy.” During World War I, the widespread use of weaponized poison gas inflicted devastating physical damage on soldiers. Death from poison gas was often prolonged and horrifying. “The long-term psychological effects of poison gas attacks remained in the minds of those who lived through or witnessed these types of attacks for the rest of their lives,” noted Mike Culver, Wright Museum executive director. “They shaped individual lives and national attitudes long after the war itself. This legacy reaches into our own time.” In the lecture, Dorsey, associate professor of history and core faculty member in Justice Studies at The University of New Hampshire, will discuss this legacy and more. From the soldiers who served at the fronts and the politicians who negotiated the Armistice to the long-term implications of the use of chemical weapons, poison gas attacks in Word War I had far-reaching ramifications. The Wright Museum’s Lecture Series takes place every Tuesday through the end of the museum’s season, which concludes Oct. 31. Admission is $3 for members and $8 for non-members. Seating is limited, and reservations can be made by calling 603-569-1212. Wright Museum is open daily through Oct. 31 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and noon to 4 p.m. on Sundays.

This event, featuring David Phelps, will also include talented female vocalist, Charlotte Ritchie, as well as Phelps’ seven-piece musical entourage. Many of the songs featured during this exciting evening are included on Phelps’ brand new release, Hymnal. Phelps lends his three-octave range to

some of the most treasured hymns of the church with this new recording, which showcases masterful vocals and lush arrangements of such cherished gems as “Amazing Grace,” “How Great Thou Art,” “In The Garden,” “Victory In Jesus” and “It Is Well With My Soul.” Each song takes the listener on a journey of inspiration and worship in song.

Classic Stanley Steamer On Display In Loudon

LOUDON - The Stanley Steamer was the most successful steam powered car in history. A New England story epic achievement, the Stanley was the product of identical twin brothers, F.O. and F.E. Stanley, of Kingfield, Maine. A car the Stanleys built in their Watertown, Massachusetts factory was driven in 1906 to the world speed record on the sands of Ormond Beach by Newton, MA driver Fred Marriott who achieved over 127 MPH. Called “The Rocket,” it was correctly called the fastest car in the world. It was the only New Englandbuilt car to ever hold that distinction. Stanley Steamers also won many hill climb events in New England and beyond. In fact, during the summer of 1899, F.O. drove a Stanley Steamer from his home in Newton, MA to Pinkham Notch, NH where he then drove the steam-powered car up the challenging 7.4 mile Carriage Road to become the first automobile in history to make it to the summit of 6,288-foot Mt. Washington. In late July, Limerick, Maine’s Coburn Benson (pictured) graciously loaned his Stanley Steamer to the North East Motor

In 1997, Benson raced this very car up Dead Horse Hill in Worcester, MA, finishing second in a competition. Stanley Steamers had previously won seven Dead Horse Hill Climb competitions in the early 1900s. The Stanley brothers were successful in many endeavors. F.E. invented a method of creating dry plate negatives which he sold to Kodak in 1904, a transaction that made him fabulously wealthy. F.O. made violins. F.E. developed and patented the first airbrush. F.O. built a hydro-electric plant in order to bring electricity to the hotel he built in Colorado. F.E. drew museum-quality portraits with crayons. It’s believed that only two cars like this one were built by the Stanleys. They were created to compete in Long Island’s Vanderbilt Cup race and raced on the sands of Ormond Beach in Florida and Old Orchard Beach in Maine. The Stanley Steamer pictured here will be on display at the North East Motor Sports Museum located at 922 Route 106 in

Loudon until Labor Day, September 3rd The Museum is currently open Friday- Sunday from 10am to 4pm. For more info regarding the North East Motor Sports Museum or Coburn Benson’s very rare Stanley Steamer race car, be sure to visit

it as a “festival.” She has a five-year vision that includes featuring bigger musicians and more wellknown artists. For now, however she explained that her objective was to “put together an event that was a gentle expansion on what had already existed, to gain the confidence and faith of the decision makers in town.” She eventually, would like it to be a real street festival where parts of town roads are closed, or for it to be at least more centrally located. Because the Arts Festival is not officially a nonprofit, Brittany was unable to obtain a permit to have the festival on town property. Consequently, she could not close down the streets or utilize Cate Park, the central park See BARTON on 28

ANI HASTINGS PHOTO ers are friends with Brittany, many her contemporaries, so they were eager to participate, and Brittney said that she believes businesses can “do good things for this town.” This is important, she emphasizes, because the Wolfeboro Master Plan discusses artistic economic development, so having businesses and artists collaborate aligns with the town’s economic objectives. I visited local artist Carly Sedler’s set up at Burnt Timber, a new brewery devoted to local drinks and local foods. Carly is young, 21, and has not had the experience of displaying her work in a gallery, so she was excited for the opportunity to have a pop-up at Burnt Timber.

eral oil paintings hanging on the wall. She set out her business cards and had prints of a selection of her drawings available for purchase. “I commissioned a jacket for a woman I met during my pop-up,” she said, showing me the rack of jackets. I asked her about how it felt to have a space devoted to her art and whether she is interested in being exhibited in galleries, “I feel like this is a step in the direction towards gallery life but not quite that. Doing this makes me want to have a space where my art is displayed everyday.” However, Carly’s pop-up location, Burnt Timber, is somewhat remote, not located on Main street, so she lacked the exposure other artists enjoyed. Intern Ani Hastings, who has been working closely with Brittany planning the festival and maintaining its social media presence notes, “Some artists have been unhappy with their locations, so their locations have been changed.” Although there’s a benefit to this structure of businesses hosting artists, it also, clearly, has its drawbacks for those not

situated in a Main Street Business. Ani’s older sister Emily Hastings, a teacher at New Durham Elementary School, is also a painter. She presented her work at Lone Wolfe Brewing Company. Emily specializes in acrylic pouring and mixed media paintings, which sometimes include charcoal and other mediums. Her work was hung on the walls of Lone Wolfe Brewing. “I have been doing my own art for a long time. I just recently decided to try my hand at showcasing it publicly and get my feet wet that way. It is a good incentive to produce more. I believe in Brittany’s vision for the town as a more artistic destination,” Emily said. As a teacher in the community Emily generally presents herself in a particular way. Showing her work at the arts festival allows her to introduce the community to a new, different side of herself; to show that she is a teacher and an artist as well. Like Carly, Emily found it empowering to have a space to show her art. Both women have enjoyed explaining their artistic processes to interested

patrons. “I have a good location which is nice. It is a very relaxed and the owners are super flexible and supportive. Lone Wolfe Brewing is a restaurant as well as a bar, so it offers a nice way for customers to check out stuff over dinner. They will approach me if they like a piece while they are eating,” Emily said. When discussing art and her yoga studio, Brittany emphasized how these overtly different fields interconnect, her yoga teaching and the Art festival—“I believe art and yoga and meditation and magic and empowerment are all facets of the same jewel. All about becoming and expressing that journey of becoming.” Brittany has used her yoga studio to host singer-songwriters and artists. She is planning a dance series starting this fall. Running throughout the summer, the Wolfeboro Arts Festival will be offered on the last Saturdays of August and September from 5:00 to 7:30 pm.

different growth factors and regulatory proteins, which signal your body’s cells to go to the target site, help the site to heal, and help your own cells restore the damaged tissue. It is a new option to enhance healing, modulate inflammation and reduce scar tissue formation in various injuries and conditions. “Traditional methods, such as cortisone injections, have been used for many years to treat osteoarthritis and tendon injuries, and can have significant drawbacks including a degenerative effect over time. These traditional approaches have to be balanced with the realization that there is often long term damage to the structures we are trying to treat,” continued Dr. Gellhorn. “AmnioFix, in my experience, has shown promise in the treatment of chronic tendon injuries and osteoarthritis which are very challenging conditions - to find something with such potential has been very exciting for me and my patients, and represents a terrific new option for us.” People who may be suffering from sports-related injuries or arthritis should consult their sports medicine specialist or orthopedist to determine the best treatment plan.

of The Weirs Times. Bruno stated that his motivation for pursuing the sponsorship for the Glessner Lee marker is she was instrumental in the idea of viewing crime scenes through a scientific lens. “Too often law enforcement officials prior to formalized training would make simple assessments as well as contaminate crime scenes, leading to false assumptions.” stated Bruno. Frances Glessner Lee combined her financial assets with her passion for crime scene investigation that she was considered a subject matter expert of the fledgling field of

forensics. Notably, the television series CSI-Las Vegas had a season which the killer left miniature dioramas of the crime scene and the character CSI supervisor- Grissom was perplexed and fascinated by the miniatures of the crime scene. The season of the miniatures was in commemoration of Frances Glessner Lee and her Nutshell Studies. Glessner Lee was appointed honorary Captain of the New Hampshire State Police in 1943. She is also the first female member of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. During the unveiling of the Glessner Lee marker

(located at US Route 302 and Glessner Rd at the entrance to the Rocks Estate), two direct descendants of Glessner Lee were in attendance. Gail Batchelder from Plymouth, MA traveled to Bethlehem when she learned of the unveiling of the marker in honor of her Great-grandmother. “I saw an unveiling event posted on social media and knew I had to be there for it”. Greatgrandniece Liz Carter of Bethlehem NH was also present and lives on land once part of the Glessner estate.

as accessible as Montana was. It would let locals and visitors alike be able to sit with Archie and for young children to even be able to sit in his lap. “My father always said that he wasn’t the famous one. It was Archie who was famous,” said Lynn Montana who spoke on behalf of her siblings at the unveiling

ceremony. The idea to create the Archie statue came from Architect Chris Williams, of the Greater Meredith Program. Then it was the group’s Jim McFarlin who took the ball and really started to run with it. First permission was needed from the Montana Family and then Archie Comics, which was

gladly given. Next funds were needed and many stepped up in a big way. Finding a talented sculptor to take on the project was the next step in the process. Valery Mahuchy of Bethelehem (with a studio in Sugar Hill) was picked. Mahuchy, originally from Belarus, didn’t know much about Archie since he only came to America in the early 2000s. “I found Archie interesting as he was created by Bob Montana at a special time in America. He is a real cultural icon, a model of the American Dream,” said Mahuchy.

“We did a lot of tweaking to get the Archie statue where it is today,” said Lynn Montana. “It was a pleasure to work with Valery.” There were a lot of steps to the process, including the casting and patina of the statue which was done at Green Foundry in Eliot, Maine.

Bob McFarlin started the ceremony by noting that a time capsule was recently opened in Meredith which was buried during the town’s 200th birthday in 1968. One of the significant pieces inside was an Archie comic strip by Montana. McFarlin then recognized the major donors ($5,000) to the project: Bob Lawton of Funspot; The McClear Family; Meredith Village Savings Bank; Mills Falls At The Lake; The Montana Family; Archie Comic Publications.

Lawton also told how Bob Montana used the figure of Jughead to create Funspot’s own icon, the Jester, which has been on the millions of game tokens used at Funspot over the years. “I have some 2018 tokens with the Jester on them with me today,” said Lawton. “Jughead as the Jester will always be on our tokens. Anyone who wants one can see me.” Many others who donated money and time to the project were also recognized, as there were many who came together to happily help with the project.

A special plaque presented to the Montana family was given by Easterseals in recognition of Bob Montana’s work in helping people with disabilities as he made Archie the campaign chairman for the organization in 1969-1970 raising well over $100,000. The last speaker was Lynn Montana, who thanked the hard work by the Greater Meredith program in keeping her father’s memory alive through the Archie Statue. “Meredith was his first and only home,” Lynn said. “This statue also honors those who have contributed to Meredith

over the years.” Then came the unveiling. First, the granite monument next to the statue was unveiled. A tribute to Montana with his likeness and the words: “Proud to call Meredith his true home for 35 years. Bob loved our town, often putting local people and places in his comic strip. He gave his time, energy and talent to organizations and causes that benefited New Hampshire lives. His humor, creativity and leadership made Meredith a better place. We are fortunate to have known Bob as our friend and neighbor.”

salmon. One of the biggest I’ve ever caught in Lake Winnipesaukee. After a dicey battle full of aerial acrobatics and near propeller entanglements, I managed to get the 23-inch/5.5pound porker of a salmon into my net…alone. After snapping a few photos, it swam away. I caught a few more salmon and a couple of rainbow trout at 45-feet deep before the bite became few and far between, and I left with several nice photos and a nice salmon for a friend who loves to eat them. While there will

always be a slow day here and there, it appears the late-summer salmon bite is in full swing.

that Jordon doesn’t get to say much. It’s easy to win an argument if you barely let the other guy speak. There’s also no mention of the fact that the Urban Institute says Sanders’ “Medicare for All” plan would cost the federal government $32 trillion between 2017 and 2026. Maybe the biggest theme of Sanders’ videos is the wealth gap, which Bernie says “is not only immoral (but) causes suffering for the working families (because) the poor are getting poorer.” But that’s just wrong. The poor are not getting poorer. The wealth gap doesn’t cause suffering. Yes, rich people got richer, but the poor and middle class got richer, too. Sanders never acknowledges that. Sanders posts a new economically ignorant video most every day. He says it would be “easy” to have free health

care, free college, a living wage. How will it all be paid for? Simple. Raise taxes. One Sanders video shows rich people shouting, “Tax me!” and “I should be paying more!” So pay more! No one’s stopping you! Just don’t demand that everyone else pay more. Socialists think government is the solution to every problem. They also pretend that what government provides is free. Sanders’ videos would be just a joke if millions didn’t watch. John Stossel is author of “No They Can’t!

ton Police Department crime lab a decade ago and its audits led to the more recent shutdown of the Austin PD’s mess of a crime lab. Meanwhile, no systemic reform ensued after the Macy/Gilchrist disgrace in Oklahoma. In fact, one of Gilchrist’s colleagues who admitted destroying rape kit evidence at her behest was kept on for nearly 15 more years until she mysteriously retired last year amid questions about her DNA testimony. OCPD crime lab analyst Elaine Taylor’s work (challenged by at least eight independent scientists internationally over the past year) was at the center of illegal secret hearings last summer in the high-profile wrongful conviction of former Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw. He is serving 263 years for sexual assault allegations solicited by police,

who ignored accusers’ wild contradictions and discrepancies, long rap sheets and drug-addled testimony during an outof-control media feeding frenzy before and during trial. Taylor is the motherin-law of Det. Rocky Gregory, the co-lead detective in the botched Holtzclaw investigation -- a glaring conflict of interest undisclosed by police and prosecutors. Kathleen Zellner, the nation’s most successful exoneration lawyer defending Holtzclaw against accusers’ high-dollar civil lawsuits, quipped that she was “surprised they have not put crime scene tape around (the) OKC crime lab.” While appealing his case, Holtzclaw has faced a series of Keystone Kops blunders every step of the way, with the Court of Criminal Appeals failing to follow its own rules on publicly disclosing court protective orders; a court clerk who simply “forgot” to file a public notice of the state attorney general requesting the secret hearing transcripts and exhibits; the court admitting that Holtzclaw’s public defender, James Lockard, shouldn’t have been barred from the unconstitutional secret hearings; the court realizing more than a year late that its clerk had never formally filed a critical state attorney general’s motion under seal; and the clerk failing to properly tender Holtzclaw’s amended motion for an evidentiary hearing despite it being filed with the clerk more than a month ago. This lackadaisical attitude toward matters of life and liberty pervades Okie culture. Take the case of the missing sealed envelope in death row inmate Julius Jones’ appeal. Jones, a basketball star at the University of Oklahoma, has served 19 years in prison for a murder he steadfastly maintains he did not commit. Recent episodes of ABC’s “The Last Defense” spotlighted troubling inconsistencies in the testimony of the prosecution’s star wit-

ness, who took a plea deal; ineffective counsel by overwhelmed defense attorneys who called no witnesses at trial; and the glaring failure to test a central piece of evidence -- a bandana purportedly warn by the shooter. Last December, Jones’ appellate lawyers filed an application for post-conviction relief and related motions for discovery and an evidentiary hearing to consider newly discovered evidence of racial animus by a juror. Jones’ lawyers included supporting exhibits, which a court clerk instructed the legal team to place in a separate envelope labeled “protected material.” Through a chain of bureaucratic mishaps, the key exhibits were somehow lost until Jones’ investigator, Kim Marks, personally visited the clerk’s office in June and unearthed them. The court, which had rejected Jones’ appeal without seeing the missing exhibits, was forced to acknowledge two weeks ago that it couldn’t ignore its clerk’s “mismanagement of the exhibits” and has been forced to reconsider the case. Chilling exit fact: Despite its wretched record on wrongful convictions the past two decades, not to mention three horrific botched executions in the last three years, Oklahoma’s incompetent and corrupted criminal justice system is set to resume putting people to death next year come hell or high water. Silence over this human rights crisis is complicity.

lights. When the pedestrian wants to cross the road, they press the button on the sign in order to signal traffic to slow down. Pressing the button causes the lights along the outer edge of the sign to blink, confirming that drivers will stop and allow them to cross safely. Even though the summer season is coming to the end, these signs will be helpful all year around and for many years to come. The signs will reduce the risk of accidents

HADAM from 6

Constitution and its words are “fluid” and “can change with time.” (This view is also known as looking at the Constitution as a “living” document. First, the idea of original intent is clearly seen by what the Founding Fathers themselves said. James Wilson, who was one of the original Justices on the Supreme Court and a delegate to the Constitutional Convention, wrote the following, “The first and governing maxim in the interpretation of a statute is to discover the meaning of those who made it.” Thomas Jefferson wrote, “The true key for the construction of everything doubtful in a law, is the intention of the law givers.” He would also write, “On every question of construction, let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one

his credibility with the American people. That’s why Trump should stop chatting about these matters. The more he chats, the higher the chances he creates a thicket he cannot escape. The Democrats’ best hope at this point isn’t the law or even Robert Mueller. It’s President Trump’s rage, aand his pathological inability to avoid venting it in public fora.

that could jeopardize those involved and the future of the town as a whole. Not only will these signs bring more safety to the pedestrians, they will also make it safer for the drivers on the road. With little markings of the pedestrian sidewalks, drivers are constantly scanning the side of the road for people rather than keeping their attention on the road. This puts the other cars on the road in danger. By putting in the new signs, it will allow drivers to quickly iden-

tify a pedestrian waiting to cross while still being attentive to the road and their surroundings. We can not wait around for an accident to happen. It is time to unite as a community and make a change before it is too late. By adding these signs to the side of the road, risk will be reduced and lives may even be saved. Please call or contact the local city council members to discuss this issue.

in which it was passed.” It is fair to say that this small sampling of quotes shows that the Founders intended the Constitution to be interpreted literally. And this leads me to the second reason in defense of original intent. That reason is that it makes logical sense. Think about it. When one is reading a legal document like a person’s last will and testament, it isn’t read with the idea that maybe the individual’s words changed since he wrote the will. Although I’m sure some people wish they could. (I’m sure he “meant” that I was supposed to inherit the Cadillac, not my brother.) Do you see the problem with a loose interpretation of legal documents? When one says that the words can change with time, that basically allows that individual to twist the words into whatever is convenient for them. We wouldn’t do it with a person’s will, and we shouldn’t do it with something as serious as the U.S. Constitution. The fact is that there is

a way to change the Constitution and that is by going through the process of amending it, which is laid out in Article 5. However, many would rather take the easy path of “changing” the Constitution by simply altering the “meaning” of words in order to advance their political agenda. So as Judge Kavanaugh is considered for the Supreme Court, it is important that his political beliefs aren’t viewed as nearly as important as how he will interpret the Constitution if he is confirmed to the highest court in the land.

bake the bread. The Indians, however, moved quickly and stabbed her in the heart and she fell to the floor and died. Apparently they had been hiding among some bushes around a spring that supplied the family’s water, and had seen Mrs. Simpson enter the house, but probably were not aware where her son was when they attacked. She was not their only victim, for, after killing her they ran to a log house about a mile away where Robert Beard and Nathaniel Folsom were eating their dinner and shot both men.

The story was that Plasaway had killed someone previously. In what was called “ a fit of anger” he had killed a young Indian man whose mother was a widow. According to the custom of the tribe his punishment could be decided by the widow. Her decision was that his life would be spared if he could capture a white man and deliver him to her to have as her son to replace the murdered man. It was thought that Plasaway and his companion were on a mission to kidnap a white man when they killed Mrs. Simpson and the two men. Perhaps the two men who


Kaine was originally brought to us because his owner fell on hard times and realized he could no longer provide Kaine with the proper care he needed. We nursed Kaine back to health, but the longer he remained with us, the clearer it became that he suffered from some anxieties. Because of his energy level and anxiety, Kaine found himself constantly overlooked. He sat in the very first kennel to the left on our adoption floor waiting to find his forever family. Eventually, Kaine did find a new home, but unfortunately, adopters don’t always make the animal’s individual needs and wellbeing a priority. In this home, Kaine’s life became a life of solitude. In this home, Kaine wasn’t always treated fairly. In this home, Kaine’s mental health deteriorated and he was no longer the happy and outgoing dog that came into the shelter the summer before. Now, Kaine’s anxiety and stress were heightened, he didn’t know how to cope with his feelings and underlying behavioral concerns began to arise. On January 14th, 2018 Kaine returned back to us. Although we were happy to have him with us where he would be safe and sound, we were devastated to see him back in a kennel. It quickly became very clear that Kaine’s already heightened anxieties were being amplified in the shelter environment. Kaine was in a constant state of stress and was desperately trying to communicate that he couldn’t handle being back at the shelter again. He was declining. CVHS staff realized something had to be done to help the boy that had stolen all of our hearts. It was at this time that we reached out to Really Special Animals to get Kaine into a board and train program. Not only did Kaine need to work on some basic manners, he also needed to learn ways to cope with his anxieties.In a board and train situation, Kaine could work on his behavioral concerns while remaining in a calm and relaxed environment. He stayed with Really Special Animals for three months, but eventually, his time with them began to run out. Staff at CVHS began to grow worried about Kaine’s future, as we knew he couldn’t return to the shelter environment that had caused him so much stress previously. We searched high and low for a potential foster or adopter for this wonderful boy. His Facebook posts have reached tens of thousands of people. His face was recognizable by many in the community. But still, Kaine remained unwanted and without many other options but to return to our facility. Kaine will remain in foster with Really Special Animals while also taking part in training to maintain all the progress he has made. It has been a year since Kaine first walked through our shelter door. We want nothing more than for him to walk out of it one last time and never have to look back again. Kaine needs to find his forever home, not eventually, not soon, but now. If you are interested in saving Kaine, contact the shelter at (603)749-5322 ext. 102

By the way, the two Indians were members of the Winnipesaukee tribe, referred to back then as the Winnepisseogee tribe. Elizabeth Simpson appears to have been a woman who was admired and respected by her neighbors in Nottingham. It has been reported that “…some of the first and most respectable old ladies of the town of Nottingham, who were acquainted with Mrs. Simpson, say she was one of the finest women they

ever knew.” When she was stabbed she fell on her knees and her head came to rest on the window frame. One of her neighbors went to the house to check on her, but, as he approached the house and saw her head on the window frame , he thought she was praying and did not enter the house. A second neighbor did enter the house and when he saw what had happened he went for help and a group of men gathered and initially thought that young Andrew had probably been murdered or taken prisoner, but he was soon found,

still asleep. An alarm was sounded all over the Province of New Hampshire,and a large group of men were assembled to pursue the Indians, assuming that they were part of a larger body, but they were not found. However,a few years later, after the white men and the Indians had made peace with each other, the same two men who had committed the atrocities, Plasaway and Sabateus, made an appearance in the town of Boscawen, New Hampshire. They unwisely bragged to two men in that See SMITH on 47

town, a Mr. Boen and a Mr. Morrill, about how they had killed Mrs. Simpson, adding that she “blared like a calf”. This so enraged Boen and Morrill that they immediately killed Plasaway and Sabateus. The husband of Elizabeth, Andrew Simpson, lived the remainder of his earthly life in that log house in Nottingham that remained his home. Besides the young Andrew, there were four other sons that were with him during those difficult days in 1747: Thomas, the oldest,and Robert, Patton, and Josiah. He had no daughters at that time, but eventually remarried, choosing a widow named Mrs. Brown, and those two had two children together, namely, son William, and a daughter, Abigail. And there is much more we know, and may share next week,about this New Hampshire family. Much of the above information, though not all of it. was found in a book by Dr. Frank Kelley, published in 1889 and based on Simpson family recollections.
