The Great Hurricane Of 1938

This Month Marks the 75th Anniversary Of The Worst Hurricane To Hit New Hampshire and New England The following story of the 1938 Hurricane is reprinted from “The Glory and The Dream - a Narrative History of America 1932-1972” by William Manchester, published in 1974.

seas were mysterious. Meteorologists relied entirely upon voluntary observations from merchant ships and aircraft. In the Depression the government wasn’t going to let weathermen fly around in expensive planes of their own, observing conditions there. So the meteorologists wondered, or guessed. They had long known that one of their guesses might be tragi-

cally wrong, and now the law of probability was closing in. Yet it would be wrong to name them as helpless scapegoats. Not to put too fine a point on it, the Weather Bureau was a slack outfit.

In 1938 the United States Weather Bureau was but a shadow of its future self. It lacked the superb instruments of the next generation: ra-

darscopes, jet-propelled aerial surveillance, and weather-reporting satellites equipped with television cameras. Its chief devices then were the sixteenth-century thermometer, the seventeenth-century mercurial barometer, and the medieval weathervane. The greatest need was oceanographic information. Outposts on land could exchange reports with one another, but the


On the State House grounds in Concord, the capital city of New Hampshire, many beautiful old trees fell victim to the Hurricane of 1938. This month marks the 75th anniversary of this historic storm.

The Lake Winnipesaukee Historical Society will present Adam NuddHomeyer on Wednesday, September 18th at 7pm for the program “Tappan Chairs” at the Lake Winnipesaukee Museum. Nudd-Homeyer will explain what makes a Tappan Chair. Tappan Chairs are handmade in a small shop in the foothills of the White Mountains in Sandwich New Hampshire. Starting with white ash and rock maple selected for grain and moisture content, the parts are worked by hand and on antique machines to produce a chair that is both durable and light in weight. Two hundred years of this tradition, in your home--the difference between any chair, and a Tappan Chair. This program for members, $5/non-members. 366-5950 to RSVP. The Lake Winnipesaukee is located on Route 3 in the Weirs, next door to Funspot.

“Gathering Together” Exhibit Runs Through September at Meredith League of NH Craftsmen Gallery Come to the League of NH Craftsmen Meredith Gallery for a celebration of harvest time. Their featured exhibit for the month of September is “Gathering Together,” a collection of basketry by various artists. Basket weaving is one of the oldest art forms known to man. The variety of weaves and materials used worldwide make for thousands of different types and styles. It has been said that baskets are a direct reflection of the diverseness found within the global population. Each individual weaver creates their own masterpieces with varying weaves, materials, colors, and patterns. Baskets are both purposeful and creations of artistic expression. The collection will include work by Ruth Boland, Cheryl Christenson, Sharon Dugan, Lynn Goldberg, Ray Lagasse, Liz Lapham, Alice Ogden, and more.

Find Out About New Health Care Law Starting January 1, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires just about everyone to have health insurance.

If I already have insurance through my employer or Medicare is anything going to change for me? Get the answers to these and other questions at “Find Your Way Around the New Health Care Law” at the Meredith Public Library, 91 Main Street on Wednesday, September 18 at 6:30PM.

Artist Julianne Morse at Gilmanton Year-Round Library Julianne Morse of Gilmanton is September’s Artist in the Library at the Gilmanton YearRound Library. Her work will be displayed throughout the month. The public is invited to meet the artist at a reception on Saturday, September 21, 1:30 to 3 pm, at the Library on NH Route 140 opposite the Gilmanton School. . Julianne Morse uses printmaking, hand-made paper, and collage to explore images and metaphors with nature. Through her work she investigates the history of people and places. Describing her work, she says: “In thinking about a place, I think about all of the different people, events, and history that have ‘composted’ to make a place what it is now. When I make work about landscape, I like to be conscious of the the many different people, events, and history that have influenced the modern landscape. It is a garden metaphor to describe how we are all connected.” Julianne teaches in the MFA, MAE, and BFA programs at New Hampshire Institute of Art, and is the Heritage and Traditional Arts Coordinator at the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts. She received her Master of Fine Arts in printmaking and cultural studies.

Ethan Pond, Thoreau Falls, a Few NOBOs and No Actual Bears

Sept 14-15 Sat 10-5 Sun 10-4

These hikers from Connecticut were on the Ethan Pond Trail on their way to Thoreau Falls. They were concerned about bears but it wasn’t a bear that startled them. help myself when I overheard their worries. They told me that they were the right group to fool. Thankfully they thought I was a riot. They were from Connecticut headed to Thoreau Falls. They permitted me to take their photo and to tell See patenaude on 34


Range Trail I saw that I was catching up to a small group. As I approached I began to overhear parts of their conversation, “Bears this, Bears that.” Honestly, I don’t know what got into me. I have never done anything like this before but I did it. When I was just a few feet away, instead of a nice hello coming out of my mouth a loud deep growl exploded. The last in line jumped at least two feet straight in the air. Everyone screamed and then their fearful eyes were on me and after just a second of silence they startled me with their loud burst of laughter. I begged forgiveness. I explained I just couldn’t

There was a good chance for thunderstorms and heavy showers forecasted for the afternoon. Even though I was in a rush to get to the trailhead, I picked up a hitchhiker at the end of Zealand Road. Since it was before 9am and he had a large backpack I deduced he must be one of the many North Bound Appalachian (NOBO) thru-hikers trying to make it to Mount Katahdin. I was headed for the AMC Highland Center at the top of Crawford Notch anyway and offered him a lift. He was definitely trail weary and said he had hoped to be finished by now and needed to get off the trail for a few days. FYI: the distance between Crawford Notch to Katahdin is 345.5 miles. I wished him good luck. I dragged my bicycle out of the back, jumped on it and zoomed down Crawford Notch--I played “don’t touch your brakes” game all the way! At the top of the steep Willey House Station Road I locked my bike on the trailhead signpost. My bicycle was a good choice; the parking lot was full and overflowing. Up the Ethan Pond Trail I went, I was now south bound on the AT. The trail climbs steadily and after passing the intersection with the Willey

To The Editor: “Before repealing Obamacare, don’t we need an alternative?� If you are having a heart attack, do you want treatment first or a demand that you lose weight and adopt an exercise program first? Democrat Senator Max Baucus, an Obamacare author, calls Obamacare a “train wreck�. You, all of us, are on that imminent train wreck. Should we stop the train wreck or debate alternatives while the train crashes? Americans were better off before Obamacare. Seventeen of every 20 Americans had health insurance and 100% could go to a hospital for good and continually improving treatments. The primary problem was the high cost (although it is hard to imagine something more worth our money than improving longevity and quality of life). Before Obamacare, different states experimented with different approaches to reducing costs while maintaining quality care and encouraging investments and innovations that improve people’s lives. Examples: The Indiana Health Savings Account program was wildly popular and successful. Texas efforts, including tort reform, successfully reduced costs and enticed doctors to Texas. While Obamacare was being considered in Congress, Republicans proposed these successful approaches and others

Our Story

to make healthcare more affordable, e.g., allowing people to fully deduct (from income taxes) health insurance premiums and/ or buy insurance from states offering different insurance options and lower premiums. But Democrats had enough votes in Congress to reject Republican proposals and force government controlled health care, Obamacare, on the American people. Obamacare creates another huge and expensive government bureaucracy which will control doctors, hospitals, health insurance companies, and whether we can receive the treatments, e.g., hip replacements or expensive cancer drugs, needed to improve our lives. Obamacare will be funded with money immorally borrowed (without their consent) from subsequent generations. Obamacare costs and regulations are disastrous for middle income Americans, causing job losses, stifling job creation, and turning millions of good full time jobs into part-time jobs. Health insurance premiums are skyrocketing, some good insurance plans are no longer available and many people are losing their coverage. Doctors are considering early retirement, and becoming a doctor is less enticing to our most talented students. Obamacare only covers one more person (18 instead of 17) out of every 20 while it harms those previously insured, reduces

Government Interference To The Editor: One recurring theme of the far right is that government is intrusive, takes away our freedoms, and is an inefficient bureaucracy. I’m older than average and certainly can remember some examples of government interference. For instance, the EPA stopped the fire that was burning constantly in the Cuyahoga River running through Cleveland. And way back in my younger days in New York City, getting wet in the Hudson River was a bad idea, never mind swallowing the water or eating fish caught there. But for years now, thanks to the EPA, it has been fishable and the New York Parks department sponsors open water races with hundreds See mail boat on 38

Live Free or Die.


On The Road Again

by Brendan Smith Weirs Times Editor

It has been a busy summer. I have been travelling a great deal since publishing my book “The Flatlander Chronicles.” I have been in various places around the Lakes Region and down to Concord. Twice, in the past month, I have made trips down to Massachusetts. None of this travelling actually had anything to do with the book, I just thought it would be fun to say that I have been doing a lot of it since it was published. Still, moving around a lot has made me stop and think about how much travelling I will have to do in the near future, once I seriously begin my new campaign for governor. Being in the newspaper business I have seen how important it is, as a politician, to alert the media in advance before you go anywhere on a campaign stop. Press releases are sent out well in advance of anywhere you might go so that the press might show up. Of course, if the press is there, other people will show up to see you as well since the odds are pretty good they might see a picture of themselves that night on the local news or even in the newspaper the next day. Nothing helps a campaign more than recognition. To know that somewhere someone is passing around a newspaper clipping and saying: “You can see me there in the cor-

ner. Yep, that’s me. Him? I’m not sure..I think he’s running for governor.” It is also important to put in the press release what you are going to be talking about when you are at whatever place you are going to be. This helps the news people with their story later since they sometimes get lost at the free buffet table and need to remember what you were there for when the time comes to actually report the story. Let’s face it. If I get a press release that says” “So and So (not real name) will be at (name of business here) to talk about the socio-economic impact of Wednesdays” I’m going to do my best to not go (unless there is a buffet). I am already planning on beefing up my campaign stops to make them more interesting and something that people might actually be interested in. It is months away, but here is an example of how one of my future press releases might read: “Flatlander candidate for Governor Brendan Smith will be at the Neck Pillow Massager kiosk at the Steeplegate Mall, Wednesday at 3pm to discuss the significance of the choices of the latest celebrities chosen for Dancing With The Stars. Food will be available.” (Of course, I don’t let on that it is at the food court.) Political mailings are also important when you are running a campaign. A good mailing will be a nasty attack on your opponent to distract from your own false promises. Even though people never read these things, they have been known to save a lot of money by using these oversized pieces of mail to do everything from making drink coasters out of them to insulating their basement walls.

My first oversized mailing will be different. It will be a movie and television trivia game that the whole family can play. The answers won’t be included though, those you will have to anxiously await in the second mailing which will have, right with the answers, my empty promises and also the nasty attacks against my opponents. I’m very confident these will be successful. I realize that it is important to place newspaper ads as well during a campaign. Most of the ads you see will have a picture of the candidate as well as a list of things he or she will do, usually with a big, giant check mark next to each thing on the list. The bigger the check mark, the more you are supposed to believe their sincere commitment to the issue. Boring!! My newspaper ads won’t have giant check marks, or even a list of things that I supposedly care about. My ads will contain tips on the number one thing that consumes most Americans today, weight loss. Even though the claims made in most weight loss ads hold about as much water as a politician’s promises, folks keep on believing...and reading. So when they get in the voting booth I will be the most familiar name. And, if they happen to lose a few pounds, a sure vote for me. So why not go with a proven winner? So, you see, I have been busy planning for my upcoming campaign. I am not going to go with the traditional methods that have become as predictable as a wrong weather forecast. I’m going to take the political road less travelled.

Bob Chipman At The American Classic Arcade Museum New England’s own Bob Chipman - the film, video-game and pop-culture commentator also known as “MovieBob” and “The Game OverThinker” - is scheduled to appear at The American Classic Arcade Museum at Funspot in Weirs Beach, New Hampshire, on Saturday September 14th from Noon to 3:00pm to sell and autograph copies of his new book of videogame criticism, “Super Mario Bros. 3: Brick-ByBrick.” A member of the Boston Online Film Critics Association and lifelong fan of classic video-games, Chipman is best known as the host of’s “Escape to The Movies” and “The Big Picture” weekly series; along with’s “OverBytes” and “The Game OverThinker.”

Bob Chipman First released in 1989, Super Mario Bros. 3 remains one of the most popular and influential classic games ever made and is regarded as one of the best entries in the top-selling Super Mario franchise. It also happens to be Chipman’s favorite game of all time;

From The State House So What the Heck Is The Delphi Technique? If you are like me, you probably have heard about the Delphi Technique at some point in recent past. If not, by Rep. Jane then you are Cormier in luck! ToBelknap District 8 day’s column will delve into this wonderful technique being used by all kinds of our government entities. Granite State Future really LOVES this technique and it is employed at NH Listens! sessions. If you have attended a meeting, then you will certainly recognize what is written here. Basically, the Delphi Tech-

nique is utilized to manipulate ANY meeting toward a predetermined end. (The key word here folks is MANIPULATED.) The RAND Corporation developed the Delphi method in the 1950s, originally to forecast the impact of technology on warfare. The goal is to reduce a range of responses with the end game of arriving at “consensus”. I would like to share the words of writer, Albert V. Burns, who expertly describes how the Delphi Technique works. “More and more, we are seeing citizens being invited to “participate” in various forms of meetings, councils, or boards to “help determine” See cormier on 30

Gun-Grabbers Go Full Femme-a-Gogue in Colorado COLORADO SPRINGS -- Out: The boy who cried wolf. In: The girl who cried birth control. Desperate Democrats by Michelle Malkin are imposing false-alarm Syndicated Columnist feminist politics on a highstakes recall election in Colorado this month. It’s a golden opportunity for independent-minded women to reject empty femme-agoguery and tear up the Sandra Fluke card. On September 10, Colorado Springs and Pueblo will decide whether to boot two top state Democrats (state Senate Majority Leader John Morse and state Sen. Angela Giron) over their support for radical gun- and ammo-control measures spearheaded by outside special interests. Left-wing billionaires Michael Bloomberg of New York City and Eli Broad of Detroit have poured $700,000 between them into defending the endangered Colorado Democrats. A whiff of elitist progressive panic is polluting the Rocky Mountain air. Polls show “moderate” Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper, who was against anti-Second Amendment gesture theater before he was for it, losing favor here. The libs’ gun-control laws (including more intrusive background checks and ammo mag limits) have driven manufacturing jobs away, made it more difficult for law-abiding gun-owners to conduct business, and done little to increase public safety. No wonder Hickenlooper has barely lifted one of his wavering, wet fingers in the wind to assist the recall targets. Extremist liberal groups are

filling the vacuum. They’re trotting out ridiculous fear-mongers to demonize Morse’s GOP challenger Bernie Herpin and Giron’s challenger George Rivera as misogynistic zealots hell-bent on confiscating every condom, morning-after pill and key to an abortion clinic in the Pikes Peak region. Exhale. Consider the newly formed 527 political action group “We Can Do Better, Colorado,” which put out ominous mailers and TV ads created by a Chicago-based firm. The spots are narrated by an angst-filled female who asks: “What would you call someone who supports a ban on common forms of birth control? Interferes with our personal decisions?” ... “Someone who supports a plan that could even allow police to investigate miscarriages and question the grieving woman like a criminal?” The narrator frets that if birth control warriors don’t rise up against the Neanderthals, they might soon be calling Herpin and Rivera “state senators.” Gasp! The Republican challengers appear in the ads as shadowy threats in black-and-white photos. All that’s missing are the wire hangers. Locals here also report that their college-age children are receiving push calls zeroing in on GOP opposition to taxpayer-subsidized birth control, abortion and the so-called Personhood amendment -- none of which sparked the recall in the first place and are not at issue in the special elections. The reality? Both Herpin and Rivera are pro-life, mainstream Republicans focused on increasing economic opportunity and government accountability. Their recall campaigns have zeroed in on the control freak Democrats’ underhanded subversion of trans-

Syria; The Hinge of Fate UNITED NATIONS—The

geopolitical chess game over Syria continues as the world enters Autumn with the clouds of by John J. Metzler war swirling Syndicated Columnist in the Eastern Mediterranean. The civil war which has engulfed Syria since 2011 killing 100,000, and now having crossed President Obama’s proverbial “red line” of chemical weapons use allegedly by the Assad regime, has triggered an American response set to punish the Damascus ruler. Given the Obama Administration’s bellicose rhetoric combined with the drumbeat of CNN and the media as a backdrop to conflict, the situation has morphed into a dangerous momentum. Faced with a skeptical American population and confronted by deep political concerns among both Democrats and Republicans, the Administration was wise to go to Congress. First, the U.S. Constitution in Article 1 Section 8 clearly enumerates the role of the President in the case of war; it does not give a blank check to the Chief Executive. When Barack Obama was running for President in 2007, he told the Boston Globe, “The president does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation,” Well, well. Second, Obama calculates that should something go wrong, he’ll then say, “We went forward into Syria with bipartisan Congressional approval.” This actually covers his political flank. Conversely, if the U.S. Congress votes down an attack on Syria, as did the British Parliament, the President, lacking a mandate, would be reckless to pursue the policy.  We have witnessed the antics of a Keystone Cops foreign policy where the Obama Administration talks increasingly tough, leaks to the mainstream media telegraph and specify the intended targets, all breathlessly delivered to sug-

gest imminent action. For all the righteous anguish about Assad’s alleged chemical weapons use, I ask an obvious question? When news of the atrocity splashed across the world press there was one little fact strangely forgotten. Why with UN inspectors just having arrived in Damascus to investigate another use of chemical weapons, would Assad, now winning the civil war, allow his military to launch a massive attack with the UN in town and able to visit the site of the atrocity? The timing was just ….wrong. Who profits? Secretary of State John Kerry presented a passionate and clear case for using force following the Syrian chemical weapons attack. Kerry has become the political “point man” (and perhaps scapegoat?) for a mercurial Administration policy.  But we may have reached the point of no return.  We have crossed the rhetorical Rubicon and thus are on the other side of the river but without many political allies and even worse, WITHOUT a clear and cohesive policy about what to really do to the Damascus dictatorship.  We are in a tough political position to use force; essentially unilaterally and certainly not within the legal confines of the UN Security Council.  Both Moscow and Beijing have blocked Security Council action on at least three occasions and they will do it again.  Thus all the self-congratulatory hubris about the Obama Administration having marvelously “reset the relationship” with Russia, who are we kidding? Reset it to the Cold War??   This is a geopolitical chess game. Thus we would be wise to first assemble a “coalition of the willing” as the Bush Administration did in Iraq in 2003; after a Security Council resolution allowing for action, #1441 in 2002, and then first and foremost build a proper political/military coalition. When Obama and his GOP enablers such as John McCain speak about American credibility, maybe we should rephrase that and say the Obama Administration’s credibility from a muddled and confused Middle

Eastern policy. Why not await the Report of the UN Weapons inspectors and equally follow the will of the U.S. Congress?   What is the rush to war for a murky national interest?? Clearly there are no angels to

chose from in Syria. This is a vicious, increasingly sectarian, and ethnically complex conflict. The Obama team has unilaterally chosen to use force, without first having carefully outlined the

Serious About Syria? Why are we even talking about taking military action in Syria? What is that military action supposed to accomplish? And what is by Thomas Sowell the probabilSyndicated Columnist ity that it will in fact accomplish whatever that unknown goal might be? What is painfully clear from President Obama’s actions, inactions and delays is that he is more or less playing it by ear, as to what specifically he is going to do, and when. He is telling us more about what he is not going to do -- that he will not put “boots on the ground,” for example -than about what he will do. All this is happening a year after issuing an ultimatum to the Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria against the use of chemical or biological weapons. When the President of the United States issues an ultimatum to another

sovereign nation, he should know in advance what he is going to do if that ultimatum is rejected. But that is not the way Barack Obama operates. Like so many people who are masters of lofty words, he does not pay nearly as much attention to mundane realities. Campaigning is his strong suit. Governing is not. With the mainstream media ready to ooh and aah over his rhetoric, and pass over in silence his policy disasters as President, Obama is home free as far as domestic politics is concerned. But, on the world stage, neither America’s enemies nor America’s allies are hypnotized by his words or his image. Nations that have to decide whether to ally themselves with us or with our enemies understand that they are making life and death decisions. It is not about rhetoric, image or symbolism. It is about whether nations can count on the realism, wisdom and dependability of the American government. Make no mistake about it, See Sowell on 36

On The Move? Use These Packing Tips And Tricks Let’s face it - moving is hard. Along with the stress of leaving a familiar place and adapting to new surroundings, moving means packing, loading, transporting, unloading and unpacking everything you own - as well as everything you forgot you owned. While relocation may never be completely carefree, there are ways to ease the anxiety. A wellthought-out approach to boxing up belongings can help simplify the moving process and bring you one step closer to making

your new house a home. •Box it up. To be prepared for packing, seek out a large quantity of clean, sturdy containers in a variety of shapes and sizes. When selecting boxes, you may choose to purchase new ones, helping to ensure they can withstand the rigors of moving. You can also purchase dividers, which come in handy for packing glasses and other small, fragile items. No matter what you are using, remember not to over-pack. As a general rule, heavier items should

be placed into smaller boxes to avoid too much strain on the box (and your back). •Leave it. The easiest packing is no packing at all. Moving is the perfect time to clear the clutter out of your life. Before boxing up your belongings, decide what to keep. Clothing and housewares in good shape can be donated, and broken or unused old items can be tossed or given to someone who can repurpose them. See move on 11

•Mind the supplies. The right tools can go a long way toward easing the moving process. Pick up plenty of quality wrapping material, like Bubble Wrap Brand cushioning, as well as strong packaging tape to help make boxing up your belongings a painless process. Don’t get caught up in common frustrations that cause stress and waste time, such as tape that constantly tear or splits or struggling to find the tape end. Choose a quality tape, like Duck brand EZ Start packaging tape (, for your moving needs; the brand’s Frustration Free special release technology ensures that you never lose the tape end. And EZ Start unrolls smoothly

and easily, without splitting or tearing. •Organize and prioritize. Pack from room to room and label boxes based on box contents, where boxes will be unpacked in the new location and priority. EZ Start packaging tape provides a solution here, too - with different prints to choose from, boxes can be organized and prioritized according to the particular design used. •Get help. Be organized to help the entire moving day run smoothly, so that your volunteers aren’t waiting around for a job to do. Providing tasty snacks and drinks is a thoughtful way to say thank you, as are gift cards for coffee, movie theaters or their favorite

stores. •Pack a survival kit. Moving can be exhausting, and an all-day move may not wrap up until late in the evening. Don’t spend your first night in your new home un-

packing. Instead, pack a survival kit or an “Open Me First� box with essentials to get you through that first night. Make sure to include some fun items, such as your favorite movie or a batch of brownies, to reward

yourself for a hard day’s work. Moving day may never rival a beach vacation, but these simple tips can make it a lot less stressful and help you enjoy your new home faster and easier.

Public gets Free TV with no monthly bills Federal law makes TV network giants broadcast Free TV signals regionally in crystal clear digital picture in all 50 states allowing U.S. households to pull in Free TV with a sleek $49 micro antenna device engineered to pull in nothing but Free TV channels with no cable, satellite or internet connection and no monthly bills

Who Gets Free TV: Listed below are the Weirs area zip codes that can get Free over the air TV channels. If you find the first two digits of your zip code immediately call: 1-888-752-7147 NEW HAMPSHIRE - Today’s announcement by CompTek has the Free TV Hotlines ringing off the hook. That’s because Weirs area residents who find their zip code listed in today’s publication are getting Free TV channels thanks to an amazing razor-thin invention called Clear-Cast®. Weirs area residents who call the Toll Free Hotlines before the 48-hour order deadline to get Clear-Cast can pull in Free TV channels with crystal clear digital picture and no monthly bills . This announcement is being so widely advertised because a U.S. Federal law makes TV broadcasters transmit their signals in digital format, which allows everyone to receive these over-the-air digital signals for free with no monthly bills. Here’s how it works. Clear-Cast, the sleek micro antenna device with advanced technology links up directly to pull in the Free TV signals being broadcast in your area with crystal clear digital picture and no monthly bills. Clear-Cast was invented by a renowned NASA Space Technology Hall of Fame scientist who currently holds 23 U.S. Gov’t issued patents. For the past 20 years, he has specialized in developing antenna systems for NASA, Motorola, XM Satellite Radio and companies around the world. His latest patent-pending invention, ClearCast, is a sleek micro antenna device engineered to pull in the Free TV signals through advanced technology with no cable, satellite or internet connection and no monthly bills. “Clear-Cast is being released to the general public because we just don’t think people should keep paying for TV when they can get it for free,” said Conrad Miller, Manager of Operations at CompTek. “There’s never a monthly bill to pay and all the channels you get with Clear-Cast are absolutely free. So you see, Clear-Cast is not like cable or satellite. It was engineered to access solely the over-the-air signals that include all the top rated national and regional networks, like ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, CW and about 90% of the most watched TV shows like America’s Got Talent, NCIS, 60 Minutes, American Idol, The Big Bang Theory, The Bachelorette, Person of Interest, CSI, The Mentalist, Two and a Half Men, Sunday Night Football plus news, weather and more all for free with no monthly bills,” Miller said. “That’s why Clear-Cast is such a great alternative for everyone who is sick and tired of paying expensive cable and satellite bills every month,” he said. “People who get Clear-Cast will say it feels like getting an extra paycheck every month. You see, with Clear-Cast you’ll receive free over-the-air broadcast channels with crystal clear digital picture, not the cable or satellite only channels. So being able to eliminate those channels puts all the money you were spending back in your pocket every month,” Miller said. And here’s the best part. The sleek micro antenna device called Clear-Cast is so tech-

nically advanced it pulls in even more of the channels being broadcast in your area for Free with no monthly bills. That way you can channel surf through the favorite TV shows. The number of shows and channels you’ll get depends on where you live. People living in large metropolitan areas may get up to 53 static-free channels, while people in outlying areas will get less. That means even if you’re in a rural area that just pulls in NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX and PBS broadcasts there’s hundreds of shows each year to watch for free. Consumers report that the crystal clear picture quality with Clear-Cast is the best they’ve ever seen. That’s because you get virtually all pure uncompressed signals direct from the broadcasters for free. Clear-Cast was engineered to link up directly like a huge outdoor directional antenna but in a lightweight, slim-line package. Its sturdy copper alloy and polymer construction will most likely far outlast your TV. It just couldn’t be any easier to get Free over-the-air digital TV shows with ClearCast. Simply plug it into your TV, place ClearCast on a window pane and run autoscan. It works on virtually any model TV and is easily hidden out of sight behind a curtain or window treatment. Thousands of Weirs area residents are expected to call to get Clear-Cast because it just doesn’t make any sense to keep paying for TV when you can get hundreds of shows

NNEVER PAY A BILL AGAIN: New Hampshirites will be on the lookout for their postal carrier because thousands of Clear-Casts will soon be delivered to lucky Weirs area residents who beat the 48-hour order deadline and live in any of the zip code areas listed below. Everyone is getting Clear-Cast because it pulls in nothing but Free TV channels with no cable, satellite or internet connection and no monthly bills.

Today’s announcement photo above shows just a handful of the major over-the-air broadcast networks you can receive with Clear-Cast for free. It saves a ton of money by not picking up expensive cable only channels like ESPN so there’s never a monthly bill. This is all possible because a U.S. Federal Law makes TV broadcasters transmit their signals in digital format, which allows everyone to use Clear-Cast to pull in Free TV channels with no monthly bills. CompTek is giving every U.S. household a 50% off discount to help cover the cost of ClearCast.

Searing Images – Federal Family – 300 Partners? I have asked this question many times on radio, where are the sign holders against war on the corby Niel Young Advocates Columnist ner? One listener: “Global warming has apparently wiped out the Puff-Chested North American War Protester!� ******** Missing the weekday version of my radio program because you are being productive with work or appointments? No more! For 23 hours the podcast of that day’s show is available at clips/daily.m3u. The show is always live streamed at ******** REUTERS: A Missouri man was arraigned Thursday on charges that he recklessly infected a sexual partner with the virus that causes AIDS, and a prosecutor said he potentially could have infected 300 more people in two states. David Mangum, 37, faces a felony charge in Stoddard County Circuit Court in southeastern Missouri accusing him of exposing a 29-year-old man to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which causes a lifethreatening failure of the immune system commonly known as AIDS, according to court documents. As well, Mangum admitted to having unprotected sex with more than 300 partners in Missouri and Texas since learning he was HIV positive in 2003, some of whom he had met through ads on the Craigslist Internet site, the court documents said. “This situation is a serious public health concern, Russell Oliver, Stoddard County Prosecuting Attorney, said in a statement.

“There are potentially 300 or more unknown victims that have been unknowingly exposed to HIV in this region. If any of those 300 individuals contracted the virus, all sexual partners of those victims have potentially been exposed.� Mangum, who worked in a grocery store in Dexter, Missouri, was arrested after his former partner learned in July that he was HIV positive. The man told police that Mangum had lied about having the virus. Dexter Police Detective Cory Mills said Mangum told him he hid his HIV status from sexual partners because he feared they would reject him. You know if we speak about the dangers of this behavior, though we have the First Amendment, Barack Hussein Obama and Eric Holder will not be happy with us. I am pretty sure they have discarded the US Constitution. ******** reports that Craig James, former Patriots running back has been dismissed by Fox Sports Southwest. From what I can grasp, during a campaign for himself said Gays would “answer to the Lord for their actions�. We are all going to have to answer why. And for this, they fired him from being a sports analyst? ******** WASHINGTON TIMES 8/31: Video here with dear Debbie being concerned about chemicals being used on babies.... “To me, the searing image, as a mom, of babies lined up dead... um... I uh, you know, as a mother, would want - God forbid!- in the suburbs where I represent - a tyrant went after our babies - that a nation as strong as the United States would stand up for my children� (

In fact she is so compassionate about it she needed a warm and fuzzy name for her and her bureaucrat friends. “While our FEDERAL FAMILY is becoming better prepared to support the nation, we know that being truly resilient requires the whole community coming together,� she said. At his swearing-in ceremony on Aug. 29, B. Todd Jones, director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, talked about the ATF agents who pitched in to help local law enforcement in Aurora, Newtown, Boston, and West Texas: “It’s as close as you’re going to get to blue-collar law enforcement in the FEDERAL FAMILY,� he said. Seven days earlier, on Aug. 22, David Heyman, an assistant secretary at the Department of Homeland Security, told a Washington think tank how the town of Joplin, Missouri had recovered from a devastating tornado “in partnership with the FEDERAL FAMILY.� And on July 10, Richard Serino, the deputy administrator of FEMA, told a Senate panel that the Boston Marathon bombing “was determined to be a high risk event. This determination resulted in enhanced attention to the event across the FEDERAL FAMILY...� Isn’t that just special!

metric readings, a proficiency required of all licensed navigators, baffled many veteran forecasters. And when one remembers their great need for data, it is an astonishing fact that key meteorologists did not even attempt to phone one another that day until the blow had already fallen, carrying the telephone lines with it. Ironically, the New York Times ran an editorial praising the bureau on September 21. The humdrum forecast was published on the lower left corner of page 27. Nowhere was there any

suggestion that the most destructive hurricane in American history - and the first to hit Long Island and New England since September 23, 1815 - was on its way. It is possible to trace the progress of the storm with some confidence. Atlantic hurricanes, known to seamen as tropical cyclones, begin as small disturbances in the doldrums, west of the Sahara Desert and east of the Cape Verde Islands, a calm area between the trade winds that blow from the northeast and southeast. The first stage of a tropi-

cal cyclone occurs when a column of hot moist air starts to rise. Cooler air moves in below it, the cycle accelerates, and the eastward rotation of the earth sends it spiraling off counterclockwise toward the western hemisphere. The longer the cyclone is over the water, the more powerful it becomes. This one was first sighted at 9:30 P.M. on September 16 by the captain of a Brazilian freighter, the S.S. Alegrete. It was 350 miles northeast of Puerto Rico, and the captain radioed that he could find nothing good to say about it. The closest U.S. weather station was in Jacksonville, Florida. It was also the one most experienced in judging hurricanes. But the storm lay in the area most dreaded by American meteorologists - the triangle of sea between Long Island, Bermuda, and Georgia. Weather there was notoriously unstable, yet they had no idea what was happening. They kept listening for signals from afflicted ships. None came; if any merchantmen were there, they were either lacking in public spirit or

Despite its ignorance, Jacksonville made the right moves. Warnings went out on Sunday, September 18, and Monday, September 19. Floridians, accustomed to this sort of thing, bought candles and boarded up windows. Many from New England, anxious to miss the winds, took the train home. At that point trains were moving faster than the cyclonic winds. They weren’t going to miss any-

thing after all. Monday night the hurricane turned away from Miami. Jacksonville dutifully reported that the storm was “Moving rapidly north� and only possibly “east of north.� The eye was then estimated to be 275 miles south of Cape Hatteras; that is, just off North Carolina. At Hatteras it automatically passed from Jacksonville’s jurisdiction to Washington’s, and here See hurricane on 19

Island Park, RI. Houses torn apart, huge sections of concrete foundations pounded to pieces and wreckage of all kinds piled in a heap tell a graphic story of death and destruction at this summer resort where at least 22 lives were lost. hurricane from 18

an incompetence bordering on the criminal began to creep into forecasts. To grasp what was happening one should bear in mind that a fully developed hurricane, blowing 75 mph, is as powerful as 500 Nagasaki-type atomic bombs and contains more electricity than the entire United States uses in six months. That is an ordinary hurricane. This cyclone was churning around at over 200 mph. How far over is a matter of speculation, but on Wednesday the Harvard University observatory at Blue Hill, ninety miles, from the vortex, was measuring a steady 121 mph, with 186 mph gusts, and New York City, far west of the storm center, noted 120 mph on top of the Empire State Building. Washington didn’t know that, but it had a report from the skipper of the Cunard White Star liner Carinthia. His barometer measured its pressure at 27.85, one of the lowest barometric readings ever taken off the Atlantic coast. Nevertheless, the Washington station, staffed by the most seasoned meteorologists in the country, dropped the word “hurricane� from its forecast. As late as 2 P.M. September 21, when the storm had torn up Atlantic City’s boardwalk and was transporting entire houses across Long Island Sound, Washington

reported that the “tropical stormâ€? was rapidly blowing out to sea. • New York and Boston went along with the Washington brass. Every meteorologist knew there was a lot of commotion just offshore, but it had been 123 years since a tropical cyclone had turned inward, and they just couldn’t believe it would happen now. As it passed along the Carolinas, Virginia, Delaware, and New Jersey, the forecasters, snug inland, watched their barome-

ters dip and rise again as the eye moved on. They sighed; that was over. Yet their instruments were warning them that it was far from over. Since 8:30 A.M. the hurricane’s isobars (lines of equal barometric pressure) had been lengthening into ovals, all pointing north. Nevertheless, the forecasters kept talking about “shifting gales,� as though this were a good day to fly heavy kites. Their folly was compounded by a cruel coincidence. The hurricane was coming

sumption that once Miami was saved, it was all over. What they had failed to see (apart from their own instruments) was that just when the storm seemed about to swing northeastward at Cape Hatteras, its path had been blocked by an See hurricane on 20

unusually broad highpressure plateau covering almost the entire North Atlantic. Caught between that and another high pressure area just inland, the cyclone was unable to spread out and dissipate its power. On the contrary, the winds doubled and redoubled in force. Long Island and New England had been lashed by rain for four straight days and nights. The air there was unnaturally warm and muggy. Ears felt queer, because atmospheric pressure was decreasing. In Vermont people noticed the smell of the seashore in the air. Hurricanes love nothing so much as warmth and dampness, and this one lurched toward the broad moist carpet six hundred miles long. Moreover, at the instant it crossed the shore, another dreadful principle would come to bear upon it. Usually hurricanes weaken over land, but the soggy ground, extending all the way to Canada, meant the storm would continue to blow as hard as though it had been in the Caribbean - picking up speed from the sticky air until the eye was moving at 60 mph, as fast as a tornado, fast

The 1 P.M. news broadcast from New York brought the first sign that some forecasters were belatedly coming to terms with reality. The announcer said the storm had changed course and would “probably hit Long Island.” That was some-

thing, more warning than New England was going to get, but it was too late for effective precautions. Besides, the vast majority of people missed the broadcast, and the Coast Guard had not been alerted. The richest seaboard in the world, from Cape May to Maine, was completely unprotected. Among the

It arrived in the morning post September 21, and to his annoyance the needle pointed below 29, where the dial read Hurricanes and Tornadoes.” He shook it and banged it against a wall; the needle wouldn’t budge. Indignant, he repacked it, drove to the post office, and mailed it back.. While he was gone, his house blew away. It happened that quickly. One moment the barometer read 27.95 inches. A moment later the winds struck, and people on the south shore saw what one of them described as “a thick and high bank of fog rolling in fast from the ocean.” He added,

“When it came closer we saw that it wasn’t fog. It was water.” With gusts already bellowing and the wind raving at every door jamb, the great wall of brine struck the beach between Babylon and Patchogue at 2:30 P.M. So mighty was the power of that first storm wave that its impact registered on a seismograph in Sitka, Alaska, while the spray, carried northward at well over a hundred miles an hour, whitened windows in Montpelier, Vermont. As the torrential forty-foot wave approached, some Long Islanders jumped into cars and raced inland.

Tappan Chairs are handmade in a small shop in the foothills of the White Mountains in Sandwich New Hampshire. Starting with white ash and rock maple selected for grain and moisture content, the parts are worked by hand and on antique machines to produce a chair that is both durable and light in weight. Two hundred years of this tradition, in your home--the difference between any chair, and a Tappan Chair. Wednesday, September 25th, 7pm “The Weeks Act of 1911-Conservatives, Conservation and Not One Cent for Scenery”-Featuring Carl Lindblade 2011 is the 100th anniversary of the

Weeks Act. This Act was passed by Congress and, for the first time authorized the use of federal money to purchase private land for national forests. Our White Mountain National Forest was the result. Congressman Weeks was a NH native and conservative republican from back bay Boston. The story continues as he fought for the bill against Democratic Speaker Cannon who famously said “Not one damn cent for Scenery.” Wednesday, October 2nd, 7 p.m. “Black Bear Happenings in NH”, Featuring Candice Rogers, NH F&G Wildlife Steward At the talk, Candice will explore the natural history of our native black bears, current research being done on black bears in New Hampshire, and how this powerful species is managed in the Granite State. You’ll learn some intriguing facts about bears, including how the quality of habitat affects bear productivity and how food provided by humans can affect that natural balance. You’ll also hear about the federal Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program, now in its 75th year, which makes wildlife management work possible. Candice will also have examples of bear pelts on display.

barrier beach, blew the dunes away, leveled most of the houses left standing, flooded the Maidstone Club golf course, and swamped the Montauk Highway and the Long Island Rail Road tracks at Napeague Beach, temporarily cutting Long Island in two. At the height of it, one couple actually swam across Moriches Bay with two dogs and a Coastguardsman. Arriving, the drenched woman dismayed bystanders by announcing that Long Island was sinking. That part of it nearly did. Of 179 Westhampton houses, 153 had completely vanished, and most of the others were too battered ever to be inhabited again. In and around them were twenty-nine corpses. In effect, Long Island was serving as a breakwater for the seventy-mile stretch of Connecticut shore across the sound, including New Haven and Bridgeport (which were having other problems). The exposed Connecticut and Rhode Island shores east of Montauk Point were being belted by even stronger seas, and the city struck hardest was Providence, at the mouth of Narragansett Bay. One huge wave, a hundred feet high, swept up the bay, crushed the docks into kindling, and broke near City Hall, drowning pedestrians outside. The sea pulled people from automobiles, sometimes from behind the wheel, thereby saving their lives. When it subsided, downtown Providence was under thirteen feet of water. Policemen in motorboats patrolled the Mall and Exchange Place. The headlights of thousands of automobiles shone under water, and short-circuited car horns blew steadily, like a traffic jam in a nightmare. Meanwhile, the hurricane had been thundering through Connecticut and Massachusetts. There was a grayness around everything that afternoon, as though the storm were veiling its atrocities.

President Roosevelt sent Hopkins north with 100,000 men from the Army, the Coast Guard, and the WPA. Before long they had the current running again, but much that had been lost in the storm could never be brought back.

Among the waiting mobs of refugees - no one had time for them now was Katharine Hepburn; she had waded to safety from her parents’ summer cottage an hour before it was carried away. By nine o’clock that evening Dartmouth College, in New Hampshire, was as embattled as Yale had been at 4 P.M., with the wind building and the rain slanting vertically, but by the next morning the sky, as the Weather Bureau cheerfully reported, was clear.

Conditions were hardly normal, though. The New Haven Railroad estimated that 1,200 trees and 700 telephone poles lay across its tracks. The Shore Line of the New York, New Haven and Hartford was trying to find a missing train and wondering what to do with a 300-foot steamship that lay across its tracks in New London. American Airlines was searching for an empty plane that had blown away from Logan Field in Boston. Not one Connecticut highway was open. The Hartford Courant described September 21 as the “most calamitous day” in the history of the state. “As near as the crippled communications can indicate,” the editorial said, “no community

son’s apple crop was a total loss. Maimed shore cottages that had lost their beaches were being auctioned off for pittances. And because only 5 percent of the losses bad been insured, many factories which had been in trouble since the Crash went out of business. For a while an imaginative beggar roamed Bos-

The Edge

Migration Mysteries by Steve White Contributing Writer

Have you noticed the daylight hours are waning, nights are cooler, and mornings are turning frosty? Nature has noticed these phenomenons for a number of weeks. Wild birds migrate for a variety of reasons; to escape foul weather, to search for a nesting site, or to locate consistent food sources. The real mystery of migration is not why birds perform this ritual but how. Just exactly how does a hummingbird that weighs less than 3 dimes travel each year for a total of 5,000 miles, including a 500 mile non-stop journey over the Gulf of Mexico, and arrive within a yard of last year’s home territory? How does an artic tern accomplish an annual, roundtrip of over 22,000 miles from Alaska to Antarctic? Did you know that long distance, transoceanic migrants can spend over 1000 miles in the air in a single span without land-

ing? How do they flap their wings so long? Do birds migrate at night, using the stars as navigation or during the day using aerial landmarks? The path during the migration route is fraught with dangers. Some of these natural and unnatural threats are predation, hunting, habitat loss, window collisions, human lighting that confuses navigation, etc. Wild birds can travel at speeds up to 50 miles per hour, depending on wind conditions, the bird species, and the path of the flight. Research has documented homing pigeons covering 1,000 miles in just 36 hours. For example, a shearwater, a European sea bird, was removed from its burrow in Wales, flown over 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean to Boston and released. This remarkable bird navigated its way back to the original Wales nesting territory in only 12 days! There has been much research on how birds accomplish these enormous trips using homing pigeons as the basis of their analysis. Pigeons, like most birds, are active during the daytime. They

use the sun’s position in the sky as a form of compass. As the sun’s position changes throughout the day, the pigeon automatically compensates for these changes. Migration is a fascinating topic for many people. We will continue with our column to inform you about the many aspects of the exodus of wild birds throughout the world. Enjoy your birds!! Wild Bird Depot is located on Rt 11 in Gilford, NH. Steve White is a contributing author in major publications, a guest lecturer at major conventions in Atlanta and St. Louis as well as the host of WEZS 1350AM radio show “Bird Calls” with Lakes Region Newsday @ 8:30AM. Wild Bird Depot has donated over $5,000 to local rehabilitators and local nature centers since 1996.

The Northfield Historical Society has received a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council to present â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lizzie Borden Took an Axe, Or Did She?â&#x20AC;?. The program will be presented on Monday, September 16th at 7pm. at the Northfield Town Hall, 21 Summer Street, Northfield. Annette Holba is an Assistant Professor at Plymouth State University and has published widely on communications and the Lizzie Borden mystery. Lizzie Borden was charged with the double murder of her father and stepmother in their home in 1892. Though she was acquitted after several criminal proceedings, the murder was never solved. Presenter Annette Holba will review the facts of the case and explore the evidence which many believed proved Lizzie Bordenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s innocence, while others believed showed her guilt.

Whatever did New England villagers do on long winter evenings before cable, satellite and the internet? On Friday, September 20th at 7pm, humanities scholar Jo Radner will be the Belmont Historical Society guest presenter at the Corner Meeting House in Belmont, NH and will provide some surprising answers to that question in her presentation entitled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wit and Wisdom: Humor in 19th Century New England.â&#x20AC;? Radner has been studying wintertime amusements in rural nineteenth-century Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. It is not surprising that our ancestors warmed up those long, cold evenings with social entertainments from music and dancing to charades, sewing circles, and neighborhood suppers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect, though,â&#x20AC;? says Radner, â&#x20AC;&#x153;was that so many village traditions were aimed at what people called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;mental improvementâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ways of training their minds!â&#x20AC;? Adults eagerly attended â&#x20AC;&#x153;writing schoolsâ&#x20AC;? for penmanship lessons provided by itinerant teachers, â&#x20AC;&#x153;singing schoolsâ&#x20AC;? to improve their choral singing, and even â&#x20AC;&#x153;spelling schools,â&#x20AC;? which were like adult spelling bees. In the decades before and after the Civil War, however, the most distinctive events created by northern New England villagers were the weekly â&#x20AC;&#x153;lyceums,â&#x20AC;? for which they would prepare formal debates on current or philosophical topics. These farmers and their sons and daughters would also compose and read aloud homegrown, handwritten literary â&#x20AC;&#x153;newspapers.â&#x20AC;? Sometimes serious, sometimes sentimental but mostly very funny, these â&#x20AC;&#x153;papersâ&#x20AC;? revealed the hopes, fears, humor and surprisingly daring behavior of our rural ancestors. The Corner Meeting House (CMH) located at the intersection of Fuller St and Sargent St in Belmont, NH. For additional information, please contact Christine Fogg at 524-8268.

How To Paint Like A Pro

27 Years In Business Meredith, NH 03253

603-279-7929 â&#x20AC;˘

by Tim Carter

Syndicated Columnist

DEAR TIM: We just moved, and our new home has a two-story open entrance hall that needs to be repainted. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never tackled a project like this and need all sorts of help. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wondering about the step-by-step process. The job is complex because the ceiling color and woodwork colors will remain the same. Both are white and in very good condition. Just the walls need to be repainted. How do I achieve the professional results that I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to pay for at this time? --Sylvia S., Erie, Colo. DEAR SYLVIA: You must have been talking with my daughter. She mentioned to me several months ago that I should create a stepby-step video series on how to paint. My response was that it would be pretty involved. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll try to do it with words for you. What many people think is easy -- you just grab a brush or paint roller and get to work -- is, in reality, quite involved. I say that assuming you do want professional results. Believe me, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen my share of rookie paint jobs that include painted electrical switch and outlet cover plates! A professional paint job almost always starts with great tools. This means you need to use high-quality brushes, rollers and drop cloths, but you need safe ladders and staging to reach comfortably all the high places you need to carefully cut in and roll. When I see poor-quality paint jobs and talk with the homeowners, they often show me cheap brushes and flimsy ladders and buckets that were used to do the work. I always tell my friends

to stop and read the label on the paint can. The first step rookies skip is the one about applying the paint to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;clean, dry surfaceâ&#x20AC;?. Clean means you need to wash the walls with mild soap and water. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to wipe off the top of all woodwork above doors and windows. Do the same where the walls meet the baseboard. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the dust and dirt found in these areas fouling the wall paint as you brush near these objects. Once the walls are clean, I then go around and patch any small holes or dings in the walls with quick-drying spackling compound. You can purchase some that is pink but turns white to tell you itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dry. This magical dry indicator will tell you when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safe to lightly sand the compound. As this compound dries, go around the room with white water-washable caulking and caulk all cracks between the woodwork and the walls. This is a step that 99 percent of rookies and homeowners skip, but pros

never do. Black cracks between walls and woodwork after a paint job is complete stand out like a giant blinking neon sign in the desert at night. After all these steps, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting close to the glory work. Sadly most people want to paint first -- and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually the last step in the process. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to carefully apply the wall paint next to the woodwork and the ceiling since theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re different colors. This process is called cutting in. I prefer to use a 2-inch tapered brush for this. The more expensive brushes give you enormous control so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get colored wall paint on the adjacent surfaces. Before you dip the brush in the water-based paint can the first time, get the bristles slightly wet. Shake the brush to remove excess water. Wetting the brush helps make it easier to clean the outermost bristles. Dip the brush in the paint and wipe off excess paint from both sides of the brush before you try to cut in.

public policy in one field or another. (NH LISTENS!)â&#x20AC;Ś You, Mr. or Mrs. Citizen, decide to take part in one of these meetings. Generally, you will find that there is already someone designated to lead or â&#x20AC;&#x153;facilitateâ&#x20AC;? the meeting. Supposedly, the job of the facilitator is to be a neutral, non-directing helper to see that the meeting flows smoothly. Actually, he or she is there for exactly the opposite reason: to see that the conclusions reached during the meeting are in accord with a plan already decided upon by those who called the meeting. It is the job of the facilitator to find a way to cause a split in the audience, to establish one or a few of the people as â&#x20AC;&#x153;bad guysâ&#x20AC;? while the facilitator is perceived as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;good guy.â&#x20AC;? Facilitators are trained to recognize potential opponents and how to make such people appear aggressive, foolish, extremist, etc. Once this is done, the facilitator establishes himself or herself as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;friendâ&#x20AC;? of the rest of the audience. The stage is now set for the rest of the agenda to take place.

The audience is broken up into â&#x20AC;&#x153;discussionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;breakoutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x201D;groupsâ&#x20AC;? of seven or eight people each. Each of these groups is to be led by a subordinate facilitator. Within each group, discussion takes place of issues, already decided upon by the leadership of the meeting. The facilitator manipulates the discussion in the desired direction, isolating and demeaning opposing viewpoints. Generally, participants are asked to write down their ideas and disagreements with the papers to be turned in and â&#x20AC;&#x153;compiledâ&#x20AC;? for general discussion after the general meeting is reconvened. This is the weak link in the chain, which you are not supposed to recognize. Who compiles the various notes into the final agenda for discussion? Ahhhh! Well, it is those who are running the meeting. How do you know that the ideas on your notes were included in the final result? You Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t!...So, now, those who organized the meeting in the first place are able to tell the participants and the rest of the community that the conclusions, reached at the meeting, are the result of public

participation.â&#x20AC;? Through this technique, the citizens in our communities are being manipulated to believe the efforts of Granite State Future (and other progressive entities) are â&#x20AC;&#x153;grass-rootsâ&#x20AC;? led when this could not be further from the truth. Sinister, you say? Agreed. Alinsky loved this technique and trained others to use it liberally. The goal is to silence dissent by marginalizing those who voice opinions which run counter to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;leadershipâ&#x20AC;? of the organization. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;fixâ&#x20AC;? is in folks! Next week, we will look at ways to identify the Delphi Technique in action. And we will let you know how Granite State Future and NH Listens! are now trying realign the â&#x20AC;&#x153;facilitatorâ&#x20AC;? responses to silence dissent even more! Progressives love to â&#x20AC;&#x153;change it upâ&#x20AC;? once they have been exposed. But, happily, we can do this as well. No longer is the public asleep to the manipulations of these progressive organizations. With information comes power! And guess what â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the people, just like you and I, who have the power. Sometimes, we just need to remind the government of this fact!

you have excess paint on the side of the brush closest to the ceiling or woodwork, it will ooze out and create a horrible mess. Some people prefer to spend the time and money to use masking tape and other gadgets to cut in. You can purchase tape thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made to block paint from seeping under it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried all these methods and I

can cut in with a brush faster than I can tape or use a gadget. The gadgets that cut in work great if you have perfectly straight woodwork and wall lines, but most houses donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have this. If you have to use an extension ladder to reach a high area, be sure to place a triple-folded old towel over the top of the ladder where it touches the wall. Failure to

do this will probably cause your ladder to leave depressions or marks on the wall. Use special A-frame ladders that have adjustable legs or sides to help you paint safely in stairwells. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever take chances trying to erect some crazy setup of boards and wobbly stepladders to create staging in stairwells. Many people have been seriously injured falling from unsafe staging while painting stairwells. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t become a statistic. Rolling paint on walls is the final step. Use a very high-quality roller to achieve professional results. Modern roller covers made from foam-like materials produce hardly any roller spray. Older roller covers created clouds of fine spray that coated your arms, face and anything unprotected where the floor meets the wall. Be sure to look for these sprayless roller covers. If you have a septic system, remember that you should NEVER clean your tools up inside, allowing the paint from the brushes and other tools to enter your septic tank. Paint of any type is very harmful to the septic system, especially the leach field.

the tale. For sometime I thought about bears. I have been dozens of times to Clark’s Trading Post and have never heard any of their outstanding bears growl. When I got home I did some research on the sounds that black bears make and I learned they are mostly silent creatures. They snort, huff, grunt and even pop their jaws but they don’t growl. I am going to have to work on my bear impersonation, um maybe not. The Ethan Pond Trail doesn’t go by the edge of the water of the pond named after its discoverer Ethan Allen Crawford. I took the spur trail to the pond and nearby campsite and enjoyed the splendid dancing reflection of the trees and mountains on the placid dark water. Along the way through the trees Mount Willey’s impressive cliffs and ledges are visible. I danced over the log bog bridges and trotted confidently on the sections of old road bed. I heard high pitched laugher and giggling coming from the middle of the North Fork and I spied a family with two young daughters splashing and swimming in the cold water. The Wilderness sign marks the Thoreau Falls Trail but it doesn’t point out that the falls are only a tenth of a mile away. I pity all the AT thru-hikers

I took a good rest and sat and chatted with a couple of hikers while sitting in the sun on the falls’ ledges. The crashing water was wonderfully thunderous! Soon I was crossing the talus slopes of Whitewall Mountain and at the intersection of the Zeacliff Trail. The rocks sparked

the memory of an epic day long ago with Charlie when we took the Bonds and scrambled down Zeacliff. I passed by more NOBOs that seemed to be in a hurry.

Barack Obama is a very clever man. But cleverness is not wisdom, or even common sense. When he was in the Senate, Obama -- along with Senators Joe Biden, Chuck Hagel and Hillary Clinton -- was critical of the Bush administration for not being favorable to the Assad regime. Hillary Clinton said that she and other lawmakers who visited Assad considered him a “reformer.” Back in 2007, when Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice appeared before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, both Senator Biden and Senator Hagel chided her for not being

more ready to negotiate with Assad. Senator John Kerry in 2009 said, “Syria is an essential player in bringing peace and stability to the region.” Some people said that having Joe Biden as Vice President meant that President Obama had someone with many years of foreign policy experience. What they ignored was that Biden had decades of experience being wrong on foreign policy issues, time and time again. Biden opposed President Ronald Reagan’s military buildup that countered the Soviet Union’s buildup, and helped bring about both the end of the

Cold War and the end of the Soviet Union. General David Petraeus’ “surge” strategy that greatly reduced the terrorist attacks in Iraq was opposed in 2007 by Senator Biden, who said, “We need to stop the surge and start to get our troops out.” Senator Hillary Clinton not only opposed the surge from the outset, she was among those who refused to believe that it had succeeded, even after all the hard evidence had convinced most other people. The grim reality is that key people in positions to shape our foreign policy during the Obama administration -- the President, the Vice President, two

Secretaries of State, and the current Secretary of Defense -- all have a track record of grossly misconceiving the issues, our enemies and our national interest. This is the administration that is now asking for a blank check from Congress to take unspecified military action to achieve unspecified goals. “Military action” is a polite phrase for killing people. It would be nice to believe that this has some larger purpose than saving Barack Obama from political embarrassment, after having issued an ultimatum without having thought through what he would do if that ultima-

Salome’s Stars Horoscope ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Aspects favor new romances for unpaired Ewes and Rams. Already-paired Arian twosomes experience renewed harmony in their relationships. Money matters also take a bright turn. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Use that strong Bovine determination to help you keep the faith with your convictions while you move through a period of uncertainty. Things begin to ease by the week’s end. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Pay attention to your intuition. It could be alerting you to be more careful about accepting a “statement of fact” simply on trust. Don’t be shy about asking for more proof. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Concern for the well-being of someone in need is admirable. But don’t forget to take care of yourself as well. Ask a family member, close friend or colleague to help you. LEO (July 23 to August 22) It’s OK to focus on the demands of your career.

But try to avoid misunderstandings by also reaching out to family and friends. Your sharp intuitive sense kicks in by midweek. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Keep a rein on that green-eyed monster. Jealousy is counterproductive. Instead of resenting a colleague’s good points, concentrate on developing your own abilities. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Spending time on a creative project during this high-energy week can pay off both in emotional satisfaction and in impressing someone who is glad to see this side of you.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Dealing with disappointment is never easy. But the wise Aquarian will use it as a vital lesson and be the better for it. A close friend has something important to say. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Best bet is not to get involved in an argument between colleagues until you know more about who started it and why. And even then, appearances could be deceiving. Be alert.
