Incessantly scouring the uni-
verse (and my back yard) for
the weird, the wacky, and the
stupid so you dont have to.
Greetings, and thanks for join-
ing me for another week. First,
working the system! After con-
sulting with a lawyer, Evan
Dobelle, president of
Massachusetts Westfield State
University, accused of billing
the state for unauthorized travel
expenses, is reportedly consid-
ering claiming that he actually
self-reported the violations as
soon as suspicions turned up.
Heres the good part: Dobelle
says he would thus be entitled to
the protection of the state
whistleblower statute, which
shields inside informers when
they expose wrongdoing. [The
Republican]
Next, a beer promoted as the
strongest in the world comes
with an alcohol punch of 67. 5
percent (135 proof), the equiva-
lent of 15 shots. Snake Venom,
created by Brewmeister
Brewery, comes with a bright-
yellow warning tag that says
only one bottle should be con-
sumed at each sitting.
According to its website, the
alcohol in Snake Venom is
very strong but the beer still
tastes like a beer rather than a
spirit. [www.azcentral.com]
(Its also around $85 a bottle, so
I wont be picking up a 6-pack
soon.)
Finally, there must be a better
way! The newest beauty-treat-
ment rage in China according to
Chinese media is the fire
facial, in which alcohol and a
secret elixir are daubed on the
face and set ablaze for a few
seconds, then extinguished.
According to ancient Chinese
medicine, this will burn off
dull skin and also alleviate
the common cold and reduce
obesity. [Inquisitr.com] Come
on, baby, light my fire....
Restoring my faith in humanity
(a little): a friend of mine lost
his wallet that contained,
besides important papers and
documents, around $1,000 in
cash! (Yeah, I know; I know.)
Anyhow, I ran into him several
days later shopping (no, I didnt
hurt him), asked about the wal-
let. Not only did someone find
it, the person turned it in, con-
tents intact!
I used to ask why most hot dogs
came in packages of ten while
buns/rolls came in eights (and
sometimes vice-versa). Now,
not only can one readily find
roll packages of eight, but
Hannaford sells packages of
six! Perfect match with some of
the hot dogs I buy! Woo-hoo!
Life is good. (It doesnt take
much to thrill me.)
On the other hand, I was recent-
ly shopping (basically my social
life thats where I see people),
and when I turned around, my
cart was gone, replaced by
another. After realizing what
probably happened, I stayed in
place, and sure enough, a few
minutes later an embarrassed
woman came back to make the
exchange. I lead an exciting life,
dont I?
The latest poll average (10/22)
shows Congressional approval
at around 8.4 percent (and
theyre probably thinking, So
what?). In Washington,
between the likes of Hemorr-
Reid and John Boner, we the
people are doomed! These peo-
ple have forgotten who they rep-
resent and work for (and it isnt
the corporations). (I take full
responsibility for the previous
comments please dont blame
the publisher. Blame him for the
rain and snow... just sayin.)
Gotta tell you; I was hoping and
praying that maybe this time.....
Yes, it was frozen pizza, but it
was Mystic Pizza! I dont
remember much about the
movie, but I so wanted to try
Mystic Pizza when I saw it, and
now was my chance. Sad to say
it was still frozen pizza.
I guess KFC isnt as good as
General Tsos chicken because
The Colonel is outranked. Of
course, maybe the generals
chicken isnt really that good at
all; maybe the good general
wanted to hide, so the following
variations also appear out there:
theres General Gao, General
Tau (Greek army?), General
Tao, General Tsao, General
Tong, General Tang, General
Cho, General Chau, and
General Chow. Of course, per-
haps imitation is the sincerest
form of flattery.... (Me? I go
under the name of General
Nuisance.)
Presumably you all know what I
mean, but theres a moment
most of us share coming up on a
traffic signal. Usually, theres
plenty of time to slow down if it
turns yellow or keep going if it
doesnt. But, theres that
moment when youre closing in
and it turns yellow - you are
faced with a split-second deci-
sion whether to stop or keep
going. So far, I have chosen
wrong once, sliding somewhat
sideways when I chose to stop.
Lets be careful out there.
Maybe my call is important. I
recently got hit with a late fee
and interest charge on a credit
card I have (over $50). My cred-
it is important to me, so I try to
keep up. As of late, there have
been a couple I have forgotten
to pay (they got lost in the black
hole on my desk). When I found
it, I was a couple of days late.
When I called, the person noted
I have been a valued customer
for 37 years, and reversed the
charges!
Finally, allow me to be the first
to wish you a Merry
Chrismahanukwanzakah (for
2014)! As celebrations of such
holidays keep getting earlier
and earlier (called Holiday
creep), you really cant fault
me.
Later.

Were feeling a bit like Sisyphus
these days. Every four weeks
we start from scratch by pushing
that boulder up the mountain
again, only to return to the base
and begin again after each
chemotherapy treatment.
During the weeks after each
treatment our hikes get longer
and more arduous, and Atticus
does well with them, but he lets
me know what he needs and in
the week following the injection
of poison whose job is to take
on a greater poison; hes simply
tired.
Thats okay. Its what I expect-
ed, and I think the treatments as
a whole are going as well as we
could have expected. I knew
when the first hint of cancer
arose that we had to get rid of
the toe, then when the tests
biopsies following the amputa-
tion showed clean margins I was
well aware there was a chance
cancer could come back again.
I did my research; trusted
Rachael Kleidon, our veterinari-
an and friend, for her input;
talked it over with friends, but
in the end it was my decision. I
knew wed be giving up a solid
six months of hiking, including
the best months of the year on
the trails. I also knew, however,
that Im no fan of bullies and
cancer is the ultimate bully. So
the decision ended up being an
easy one. Instead of hoping it
stayed away, praying Atticus
would always be safe, but
always fearing its reappearance,
and then being forced to play
catch up if and when the bully
came knocking again, we faced
jumped into the fire. Yes,
Atticus is the one receives the
injections in one his front legs
every four weeks, but we face
everything as a we, including
this dance with cancer.
Atticus is so comfortable he
falls asleep during the treat-
ments, and I am just as comfort-
able. Over the handful of days
following each treatment, we
take our time, just hang out
together in the yard, and we nap.
We do that a lot. After the most
recent chemotherapy treatment,
I was glad Atticus wanted to go
for a walk. That hasnt been the
case recently on chemo or post-
chemo days. We did our usual
1.4 mile loop that used to be
nothing more than an after-
thought, but on that day, we
poked slowly along, and it took
us close to an hour. But still, we
were out there, and I was grate-
ful for that.
Another thing to be grateful for
is as of late Atticus's appetite is
better, and weve made it
through the nights without inci-
dent. No diarrhea. No vomiting.
All good signs.
I take note of such things, but I
dont fixate or obsess. Its a lot
like going on a winter hike here
in the White Mountains. I plan
for the worst, hope for the best.
Either way, I am prepared for
the tough and the easy.
One of the side effects of the
cancer I wasnt ready for is that
it seems that everyone who has
had a dog in his or her life who
has fought it has reached out to
me. The messages are typically
in one of two forms. People
either lost a dog to cancer, and
they are expecting that Atticus
will die as well. Or surgery
and/or chemotherapy was suc-
cessful, and they deliver to me a
been there, done that cavalier
message. Although they mean
well, I'm not a big fan of either
and tend to ignore the messen-
gers and what they are saying.
During the summer of 2005,
when Atticus and I hiked the
forty-eight four thousand foot
peaks in eleven weeks, we were
only about a quarter of the way
through the list on a day when
we were on our most ambitious
hike of the summer up to that
point. Wed been over North
and South Twin and were rest-
ing at Galehead Hut before
making the short ascent up the
mountain with the same name.
There was a large group of
women hiking together, and
theyd been at it a long time.
One of them had two dogs with
her. I was so happy Atticus and
I had accomplished what we had
and eager for the adventures of
the rest of the summer when this
one particular woman talked
about her hikes and the quest we
were on, she seemed bored and
her exact words were: Been
there, done that.
Walking down the trail that
afternoon, just Atticus and me
once again, I thought of her
words and decided I would
never take that approach with
anyone, no matter how many
mountains Atticus and I ended
up climbing. We all have our
own reasons for climbing
mountains, and I do my best to
approach every other hiker,
especially new ones, with a
sense of respect and reverence
for their personal journey. In
our own life, I tend to approach
each peak with reverence and
respect, not to mention a sense
of wonder.
Well, this dance with cancer is
the same way for me. We didnt
choose cancer. It chose us.
Nevertheless I looked upon it as
a new adventure. There were
gifts to be discovered along the
way that would be revealed only
to us. I didnt want to belong to
any support groups. I didnt
want to hear that the sky is
falling or that we had nothing to
worry about. Cancer and
chemotherapy may not be the
same as climbing a mountain in
the sense that its not much fun
at any time throughout the
process, but to me it represents a
personal experience and the
authenticity helps shape us.
What we make of it, what we
take from it, becomes part of
our story and part of who we
are. I don't want that devalued
in any way.
Considering all we've been
through, am I happy with the
decision to have chemotherapy I
made?
Happy wouldnt be the right
word. I am convinced, however,
that I made the correct decision.
I'm also thrilled that we stuck
with Rachael giving the treat-
ments at North Country Animal
Hospital even though it's some-
thing they (and she) have only
done there once before (for a
staff member's dog). I went with
my heart, knowing Rachael
understands the relationship
Atticus and I share and because
she allows me to be with him
throughout all the treatments.
That wouldnt have been the
case if we had gone to some
expert in a more sterile facility
in Portland, Portsmouth, or
Boston. Not only would they
not allow me to sit with him
through the chemotherapy treat-
ments, they wouldnt have
allowed me to be with him dur-
ing the surgery and the recovery.
It may not be the way other peo-
ple would have done it, but its
been the path I chose, and its
now the journey he and I are on.
And to paraphrase Maya
Angelou, We wouldnt take
nothing for our journey now.
If Atticus has a weakness, it's
when we are away from each
other. I never taught him how to
do that and like all good hiking
partners; we go through thick
and thin together. His sleeping
through a treatment shows how
at ease he is, how this is but
another mountain for us to
climb, and how we are exactly
where we are supposed to be.
Yes, we deal with stretches
where he lacks energy and are
missing out on many of the
hikes we planned on, but on this
current journey we are very near
the views at the top. And when
all is said and done, and the
chemotherapy is a thing of the
past, we wont have to worry
that bully coming back into our
lives.
This is our journey, our moun-
tain, our life, and were writing
the story we wish to live in. I
believe that when we face a fear
and eat the fear, it allows us to
make strengths out of our weak-
nesses and give us courage
where once we only had fear.
Do this with someone you love
and its all the more special
and all the more powerful.

Hello friends of nature and wel-
come to this weeks edition of
Nature Tracks...
MUZZLELOADER
SEASON STARTED
NOVEMBER 2nd
OPENING DAY FOR
REGULAR FIREARMS
DEER SEASON IS NOVEM-
BER 13th
Opening day for New
Hampshires regular firearms
deer season is November 13,
2013, a date anticipated with
great enthusiasm by the states
60,000 deer hunters. The season
runs through December 8 in
most of the state, except in
Wildlife Management Unit
(WMU) A in northern New
Hampshire, where it closes
December 1 (changes in season
length remain in place in
Wildlife Management Unit A as
part of an effort to improve the
buck age-structure of the north-
ern deer herd). The states popu-
lar muzzleloader deer season
gets underway on November 2
statewide and runs through
November 12.
"For many New Englanders, the
firearms deer season is a tradi-
tional opportunity to get togeth-
er with family and friends,
enjoy our bountiful resources
and put meat in the freezer
before winter," said Kent
Gustafson, Wildlife Programs
Supervisor for the New
Hampshire Fish and Game
Department.
New Hampshire's archery deer
season began September 15. As
of October 20, 2013, a total of
2,518 deer had been taken by
archers, an increase of 30% over
the 2012 total at this point in the
season. According to Fish and
Game Deer Project Leader Dan
Bergeron, the harvest remains
up significantly from 2009 and
2010, when the September
archery season was bucks only,
and is the highest in the last nine
years. Reported registrations in
most counties have increased
toward or surpassed 2007 lev-
els, when the states second
highest total deer kill occurred.
"The increase at this point in the
season is likely the result of the
mild winter in 2012-13 and
favorable hunting conditions,"
said Bergeron. "The increased
deer kill is likely to continue
throughout the archery, youth,
muzzleloader and regular
firearm seasons as a result of
higher deer survival and recruit-
ment following two of the
mildest winters on record dur-
ing 2011-12 and 2012-13. Food
abundance seems to be average
this fall, with reports of certain
crops being locally abundant."
For a comparison by county
(based on where deer were reg-
istered, not necessarily where
harvested), visit
http://www.huntnh.com/Huntin
g/deer_hunt_take_October.htm.
Deer hunters can find Wildlife
Management Unit and season-
specific either-sex day regula-
tions in the N.H. Hunting and
Trapping Digest, available at
http://www.huntnh.com/pubs/h
unting.html or from any agent
when you buy your license.
Special Unit M Antlerless Deer
Permits are sold out.
Hunting licenses can be pur-
chased online at
http://www.huntnh.com, from
license agents statewide, or at
the N.H. Fish and Game
Department in Concord. The
basic N.H. hunting license costs
$22 for residents and $103 for
nonresidents, plus a $2.50
wildlife habitat fee. Hunters age
15 and younger do not need a
license, but do require permits
for some species, such as turkey
and bear, and must be accompa-
nied by a properly licensed adult
at least 18 years of age.
New Hampshire continues to
offer the Apprentice Hunting
License, which allows people a
chance to hunt under the guid-
ance of an experienced hunter
age 18 or older without taking a
Hunter Education course first.
Learn more at
http://www.huntnh.com/Huntin
g/apprentice.html.
Hunters with full freezers are
reminded that the New
Hampshire Food Bank is seek-
ing donations of whole or
processed deer. This venison
provides a valuable source of
meat for food banks around the
state. For more information, call
the food bank at 603-669-9725
x240 or visit
http://www.nhfoodbank.org.
The New Horizons Food Bank
in Manchester also accepts
game donations to help feed the
hungry. To donate game meat to
New Horizons, call 603-628-

On Sunday, October 27th just
after noon, the Northcountry
News received the following
statement that Iwould like to
share with our readers.
People may have most likely
heard or read about this by now,
but Ithink it important to share
this statement with our readers.
Today, District 1 Executive
Councilor and Grafton County
Commissioner Raymond S.
Burton released the following
official statement.
It is with a heavy heart that I
inform you that my cancer has
returned. After several days in
and out of the hospital I will be
heading home to Bath, New
Hampshire to rest. Due to this
recent health development I
wish to inform my intention not
to seek re-election to the posts
of Executive Councilor and
Grafton County Commission.
Councilor Burton served for 4
decades and has served over
250,000 constituents spanning
from the lakes region to the
Canadian border.
Even though I will not be seek-
ing another term for public
office, I will fulfill my duties in
trusted in me. My office is
always willing to assist the con-
stituents of Grafton County and
Executive Council District 1.
I wish to thank my fellow resi-
dents of New Hampshire for giv-
ing me the privilege to serve
them. In addition I thank my fel-
low Councilors and the
Governors I proudly served
with. I would also like to thank
the 350 directors and commis-
sioners I had the honor to work
with over my years of public
service. All decisions and mat-
ters addressed were always in
the best intention to see our
state succeed and I am honored
to have been allowed to serve
and work to make a difference
for the Granite State.
End of Statement~
Knowing Iam not a very polit-
ical person, Ray and Ialways
got along, always spoke when
we saw each other, and I was
always able to tell him whether
Iagreed or disagreed with his
political ideas and thoughts -
and that was always fine with
him.
This is the message Ileft on his
Facebook page.
Ray, you know me - not much of
a political person, but I am cer-
tainly honored to know you, and
to have had the opportunity to
print many of the pictures and
stories you sent us in our pages
of the Northcountry News over
the years. I think I can say with-
out any doubt, that no one will
be able to replace the time and
effort you put in to the north
country of NH. There are many
who talk the talk, but never walk
the walk, but you always did
both. Thank you for your many
years of service to the north
country.

I recently obtained Roland
Bixbys new and great, 27th
Book, containing the fascinating
History, of the old Charleston
district of Warren, which was a
thriving community, till it was
exceptionally Hit Hard by the
Spotted Fever Plague. The Town
was located behind Lake
Tarletons, which was also a
thriving summer resort and
probablyyio doubt,was an asset
to these Charleston residents,
looking for work. The Town
slowly fell apart and left, after
it survived the Plague and even
the cemetery could not be found
for years.
Roland Bixby offered a $300
gift to anyone, who could find
the old cemetery. I personally
along with my sons searched the
area to no avail. But Roland for
years has searched and never
gave upland finally, he should
be proud, to say, He has found
the old cemetery. He has been
busy questioning several seniors
who remember participating in
funerals, and laying flowers,
yearly at its grave sites, and with
their directions, continued his
search and with a tool called a
pipe founder, He is satisfied that
he at If ast has found, the old
cemetery, and The Church and
school location. Many farm
remnants can still be found,
including old orchards.
How many of todays residents,
have passed by the Lake Tarleton
area and even spent time fishing
or boating and have never even
known about Charleston? How
these early Pioneers lived and
endured lifes hardship.
I found this book so interesting;
I could not put it down, till I
continued with Rolands news.
Like Rolands Book on Indians
(Behold the White Man
Cometh) in this area, I found it,
one of the best, and informative.
Being one who has Indian
Roots, and have worked for
years with Indian groups, I also
found his book to contain true
facts, good and bad, which is
very rare, these days.
I hope you will go out and pur-
chase Rolands book called
The Quest at Rest Hopefully
the Historical Society and
Town Stores will be helping to
circulate! Warren and
Wentworth are fortunate to
have its own Historian, so
active, in our towns History,
Reporting unknown years
before us! Keep up the good
work Roland!

"Go Green", they cry,
We need electric power.
The wind will provide
With 45-stories high
wind towers.
But wait, not here in our states
Cry Massachusetts,
Connecticut and Rhode Island,
Let's devalue land in New
Hampshire
With those lakes, mountains
and highlands.
They're just slow country folks,
Who will gladly take the bait
Until those monsters are
constructed, And then it will
be too late.
Their beauty will be destroyed,
The hawks and eagles killed,
But we won't see it from here,
And our electric greed will be
fulfilled...

Rivendell Academy Players To Perform______________________
The Rivendell Academy Players
will be performing the fall pro-
duction of A Connecticut
Yankee in King Arthurs Court.
Audiences always enjoy watch-
ing their favorite literary char-
acters come to life on stage,
especially when seasoned with
the wonderful humor of Mark
Twain. Hank Morgan, (Teddy
Wilkin) a teenager who works
on his schools stage crew, is
knocked out by a co-worker and
finds himself transported back
to the thrilling days of King
Arthur (Alex Rand), Queen
Guenevere (Sarah Parenti), and
the Knights (Caleb Day & Sam
Tilden) and Ladies (Gabbi
Miles, Lauren Holt, & Katana
Labadie) of the Round Table.
Hank, who has been studying
astronomy, predicts an eclipse
of the sun and is hailed a great
wizard. His is knighted Sir
Boss and sets about moderniz-
ing Camelot, complete with
telephones, bicycles and T-
shirts. But the kings wicked
half-sister (Tali Gelenian) plots
against Camelot, planning an
invasion with her own army.
How Sir Boss overcomes the
evil plot and finds his way back
to Hartford, Connecticut, pro-
vides fun and excitement for
everyone!
With Anna Alden directing,
Cami Buster leading the set
design and construction, Brook
Stewart leading the costume
design and 20 students working
hard to tell the story we are in
for a great show! The show will
be November 7th, 8th and 9th in
the Rivendell Academy Gym.
Show starts at 7:00 p.m. Tickets
are $5.00/students, $8.00/adults.

Inspiring Words for You!
Dear Friends, 1 Thessalonians 5:17
tells us to pray unceasingly. I don't know if
you have noticed yet, but there surely is a lot
to pray about! And that brings me to these
questions. Do you pray? Do you feel the need
to pray? Do you think God hears your
prayers? And the answer to all that is a
definite YES! He hears everyone. But since He
is the Alpha and Omega, He alone knows your
answer and when to give it. We have to trust
in Him, that He knows what is best. His timing
IS perfect. There are many of us that can
attest to the fact that sometimes we have
been glad He did not give us what we wanted.
But what we needed. Just come to the Father
in prayer and thanksgiving. Trust and hope in
Him. I promise you, He will not let you down.
God bless you all.

Tech Tips, Talk & Advice
For Your Computer
paigecs@gmail.com
There is another threat out there
for computer users, it is called
ransom ware. That is where a
hacker will install a program on
your computer that will render it
useless until you purchase a
money pak from $100 to $300
to get access to the files on your
computer. The latest threat is
called Cryptolocker. Here is
more information about this
threat thanks to Windows
Secrets by Susan Bradley;
Online attackers are using
encryption to lock up our files
and demand a ransom and
AV software probably won't
protect you. Here are ways to
defend yourself from
CryptoLocker.
It's already hit many consumers
and small businesses. Called
CryptoLocker, this infection
shows up in two ways. First,
you see a red banner (see Figure
1) on your computer system,
warning that your files are now
encrypted and if you send
money to a given email address,
access to your files will be
restored to you.
CryptoLocker warning
Figure 1. CryptoLocker is not
making idle threats.
The other sign you've been hit:
you can no longer open Office
files, database files, and most
other common documents on
your system. When you try to do
so, you get another warning,
such as "Excel cannot open the
file [filename] because the file
format or file extension is not
valid," as stated on a TechNet
MS Excel Support Team blog.
As noted in a Reddit comment,
CryptoLocker goes after dozens
of file types such as .doc, .xls,
.ppt, .pst, .dwg, .rtf, .dbf, .psd,
.raw, and .pdf.
CryptoLocker attacks typical-
ly come in three ways:
1) Via an email attachment. For
example, you receive an email
from a shipping company you
do business with. Attached to
the email is a .zip file. Opening
the attachment launches a virus
that finds and encrypts all files
you have access to including
those located on any attached
drives or mapped network
drives.
2) You browse a malicious web-
site that exploits vulnerabilities
in an out-of-date version of
Java.
3) Most recently, you're tricked
into downloading a malicious
video driver or codec file.
There are no patches to undo
CryptoLocker and, as yet,
there's no clean-up tool the
only sure way to get your files
back is to restore them from a
backup.
Some users have paid the ran-
som and, surprisingly, were
given the keys to their data.
(Not completely surprising;
returning encrypted files to their
owners might encourage others
to pay the ransom.) This is,
obviously, a risky option. But if
it's the only way you might get
your data restored, use a prepaid
debit card not your personal
credit card.
In this case, your best defense is
prevention. Keep in mind that
antivirus software probably
won't prevent a CryptoLocker
infection. In every case I'm
aware of, the PC owner had an
up-to-date AV application
installed. Moreover, running
Windows without admin rights
does not stop or limit this virus.
It uses social engineering tech-
niques and a good bit of fear,
uncertainty, and doubt to
trick users into clicking a mali-
cious download or opening a
bogus attachment.
Your best prevention is two-
fold:
1) Basic method: Ensure you
keep complete and recent back-
ups of your system. Making an
image backup once or twice a
year isn't much protection.
Given the size of today's hard
drives on standalone PCs, an
external USB hard drive is still
your best backup option. A 1TB
drive is relatively cheap; you
can get 3TB drives for under
U.S. $200.
Small businesses with net-
worked PCs should have auto-
mated workstation backups
enabled, in addition to server
backups. At my office, I use
Backup Box by Gramps'
Windows Storage Server 2008
R2 Essentials (site). It lets me
join the backup server to my
office domain and back up all
workstations. I run the backups
during the day, while others in
the office are using their
machines and I've had no
complaints of noticeable drops
in workstation performance.
As mentioned, make sure you
do regular backups of all your
data files that means your pic-
tures, documents and financial
data files backup everything
that is important to you just in
case you do get the virus you do
not have to pay the $300.00 ran-
som all you have to do is reload
your computer and restore you
backed up files.
I will be talking more about this
virus in the next article if you
have any questions please call
me at (603)747-2201 or email
paigecs@gmail.com , until next
time have a safe computing
experience.

Researchers are exploring the feasibility of utilizing solar geo-

before it can reach the Earth and further contribute to the
greenhouse effect that is causing our climate to warm.

Haverhill Corner Library Announces
Discussion Of The Lord Of The Rings_____
Dear EarthTalk: What is solar
geo-engineering and how can it
help stave off global warming?
-- Jamie Renquist, Salem, OR
Solar geo-engineering is a term
describing any of various tech-
niques for reducing the amount
of sunlight that reaches the
Earth and its atmosphere.
Researchers are exploring the
feasibility of utilizing solar geo-
engineering to reflect some of
the suns heat back into space
before it can reach the Earth and
further contribute to the green-
house effect that is causing our
climate to warm. Some ways of
doing this include pumping sul-
fur aerosols into the atmos-
phere, sending huge space mir-
rors or reflective balloons into
Earths orbit, enhancing the
reflectivity of clouds by spray-
ing water into them, and even
just painting everybodys roofs
white.
While solar geo-engineering
cant do anything about the car-
bon dioxide already in our
atmosphere that will be causing
more warming for decades to
come or longer, it can help
reduce the planets carbon load
moving forward, and is thus
generally viewed as part of the
climate solution but not the
whole enchilada. That is, no
matter what it is still in our best
interest to reduce our carbon
footprint as much as possible
regardless of the whiz bang
technologies scientists are
developing to help.
The most practical of the solar
geo-engineering techniques
involves sending a specially
modified fleet of jets around the
globe spraying sulfates into the
atmosphere that would combine
with pre-existing water vapor to
form aerosols. When dispersed
by the wind, these sulfates
would cover the globe with a
haze that could reflect an esti-
mated one percent of solar radi-
ation back out into space. The
model for such a scenario
occurred naturally in 1991 when
the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo in
the Philippines sent some 10
million metric tons of sulfur into
the atmosphere and caused a
reduction in global temperatures
by about one degree Fahrenheit
for more than a year.
While employing such tech-
niques might seem like a no-
brainer, there are inherent risks.
Alan Robock, an atmospheric
scientist at Rutgers University,
warns that adding sulfur to the
skies, for instance, could shift
rainfall patterns and hasten the
thinning of the ozone layer. We
are going to put the entire fate of
the only planet we know that
can sustain life on this one tech-
nical intervention that may go
wrong? he asks. Another issue
is the so-called abrupt cessa-
tion risk whereby shutting off
whatever solar geo-engineering
techniques are in effect could
cause a sudden rise in global
temperatures to previously
unforeseen levels.
Given reticence about applying
quick technological fixes for
our climate problem, propo-
nents of solar geo-engineering
are calling for the federal gov-
ernment and other concerned
parties to fund more research.
The balance of evidence so far
suggests that solar geo-engi-
neering could reduce climate
risks, but early science might be
wrong, he says. We need
experiments, which might show
that it does not work.
But perhaps the biggest hurdle
to implementation of solar geo-
engineering is getting the
nations of the world to agree on
the need for it. With solar geo-
engineering, at some level
youve got just one knob, says
Harvard energy and climate
researcher David Keith, a big
proponent of solar geo-engi-
neering. That demands collec-
tive global decision-making.

C o r n e r
L i b r a r y
will host a
discussion
of The
Lord of
the Rings
by J. R. R.
To l k i e n ,
the library has announced. This
will be second in the librarys
fall series on British fantasy
novels. The program will be
held on Monday, November 11
at 7:00 PM and will be free and
open to the public.
Originally published in three
volumes in 1954 and 1955, The
Lord of the Rings became one
of the most important and influ-
ential fantasy novels of the
twentieth century. Indeed, its
success was so great that the
high fantasy mode that the
book exemplified became the
dominant, and almost only,
commercially viable form of
fantasy for many years. More
than that, the book became an
American cultural phenomenon
in the mid-1960s and has
become one of the best-selling
titles in history.
The story concerns the efforts of
a group of characters to destroy
a magic ring and defeat an evil
force that threatens their land of
Middle-earth. From 2001 to
2003, the book was adapted in a
series of three critically
acclaimed and commercially
successful films, directed by
Peter Jackson. The third film in
the series, The Return of the
King, won eleven Academy
Awards, including the award for
Best Picture.
J. R. R. Tolkien was a
philologist and professor at
Oxford University. Born in
1892 in what is now South
Africa, Tolkien studied at
Oxford and fought in World War
I, though he fell ill and was sent
home. Drawing on his interest
in languages and mythology, he
developed a long and complex
history of a fantasy realm that
he termed Middle-earth, and
out of that material eventually
grew The Hobbit, published in
1937, and The Lord of the
Rings. More of this material
was subsequently published
after his death in 1973 as The
Silmarillion (1977) and in other
volumes edited by his son and
literary executor, Christopher.
The librarys series The
Fantastic Fifties: British
Fantasy at Mid-Century or,
Whats With All the Initials?
will conclude on Monday,
December 9 with a discussion of
The Once and Future King by T.
H. White. Copies will be avail-
able to borrow in advance.

Adventures
in
Homesteading
by
Beth
Weick
Under the Stairs
Our cabin, as you might imag-
ine, has neither cellar nor long-
term food storage. During the
warmer months we eat fresh
from the garden and supplement
with dry goods. Perishables are
a treat, and eaten quickly. A
cooler dug into the ground is our
closest approximation of a
refrigerator.
After a prolific season in the
garden, storage became our
major question. In prior years,
when the harvest was small,
produce could be stored in bas-
kets and boxes in the yurt, and
eaten before the freezing cold or
the decomposition of time could
lead to the foods demise. This
season were lucky: with the
arrival of my parents to
Dorchester, we quite conve-
niently have access to a full cel-
lar with space to fill. Potatoes,
therefore, are laid out on and
under cardboard, while roots
such as turnips, carrots, and
beets are buried in buckets of
sand, and cabbage heads are
stuffed into containers of com-
post.
At the point of my September
harvest, however, even the cel-
lar was a tad too warm.
Cabbage leaves were losing
their life too quickly, and
turnips and carrots were trying
to sprout.
This was worrisome, but not a
problem for long. The direct
exit from the cellar to the out-
side sits between an insulated
door and the bulkhead hatch.
Upon removing the stairs from
this exit, we cleverly created a
nook that was insulated from the
house heat, and readily cooled
by its thin exterior storm door
and shaded location.
So, voil, we have a grocery
store under the stairs. What a
pleasant adventure compared
with the average shopping rou-
tine! Every day or two, with
basket or bucket in hand, I trot
down to the darkened cellar and
enter this makeshift root cellar.
Headlamp affixed to my head, I
plunge my fingers through lay-
ers of damp sand and newspa-
per. I retrieve sweet Scarlet
Nantes carrots, large Purple Top
turnips, and Detroit Dark Red
beets. Red and white skinned
potatoes, green cabbage, and
more than half a dozen winter
squash varieties (stored upstairs
as they prefer drier conditions)
round out the options for each
meal.
A good scrubbing is required,
but then: gleaming vegetables
are piled high, their bright col-
ors and sweet, earthy flavors
satiating both our eyes and our
palettes. No lines, no check-out
counters, no price tag just
some dirt under our nails, very
generous parents (they get veg-
etables, too!), and a little bit of
planning. The thrill and satis-
faction of a garden continue
well after the cold season has
arrived.

PTSD: A Defining
Moment for the US
Post Traumatic Stress
Syndrome, PTSD, is being
bandied about through the news,
with prejudices and misinfor-
mation confusing the issue.
While there are many roots to
PTSD, and they are often bla-
tantly misrepresented, my con-
cern here is with the PTSD pro-
duced by our continual wars that
plague our returning veterans.
Our country expects veterans to
be willing to make the ultimate
sacrifice of their own lives, yet
many then face insurmountable
hurdles to receive the help they
need to deal with searing mem-
ories of the acts of war and
rebuild their own lives. We are
at a defining moment in the US.
Despite claims to be bringing
democracy to other countries,
the reality that confronts us has
more to do with the US need to
control other countries. We have
a long history of complicity in
the elimination of democratical-
ly elected officials, i.e.
Lumumba in Africa and
Allendez in Chile, leaders who
may have generated independ-
ence. We still seem to be after
the natural resources a country
has, and a lust for power over
them.
We raise our children to respect
others and then train servicemen
and women to kill innocent chil-
dren and others, to destroy their
homes, their communities, their
water supplies, the simplest
rudiments of living. And then
our veterans are expected to
come home after however many
tours of duty and get on with
their lives. They bring unfath-
omable memories home with
them along with the unanswered
questions: Why did we have to
do this to those people? How are
their lives better?
For veterans, the final insult is
to have themselves denigrated
as having a mental illness that
maybe started before they
joined the military, or because
they were using drugs that no
longer helped block those mem-
ories. PTSD may not kick in for
months or years later, when
some new situation or interac-
tion floods their mind with
those memories, and becomes
unbearable, causes irrational
outbreaks. To qualify for treat-
ment, veterans must document
specific evidence that their
PTSD is due to incidents which
occurred during their tour of
duty.
Currently, USA Today reports
that there are 22 suicides per
day among veterans of all ages.
About 3,000 active-duty troops
have killed themselves since
2001. NPR noted that while
95% of vets were seen as quick-
ly as they were supposed to be,
nearly 100,000 patients had to
wait much longer. At the VA
center in Salisbury NC, the
average wait was 3 months.

Journal of Consulting and
Clinical Psychology cited a
PTSD study, led by Eric B.
Elbogen, of 1388 combat veter-
ans, which found that 23 percent
of those vets had been arrested
since their combat deployment,
due to difficulties dealing with
their anger. The study also
found that current VA treatment
of PTSD did not include therapy
designed specifically to reduce
irritability. Evidence based
treatment needs our ongoing
moral and financial support to
conduct and respond to such
studies whether provided by the
VA or privately.
Veterans often avoid treatment
for fear they will be perceived
as weak, or will be mistreated,
or will have difficulty docu-
menting the necessary forms for
treatment.
Calling PTSD mental illness is
also seen as a way of attributing
it to something other than the
atrocities of war and confuses
both the public and veterans in
need of help.
Missing from the call to rush
military aid to other countries is
the call to fully provide the
PTSD treatment programs our
veterans deserve. Missing is the
consideration that war may not
be the best remedy for the
worlds problems, given the
overwhelming problems gener-
ated by war itself.
How might congress respond to
a landslide of calls and letters
prioritizing research and treat-
ment for our veterans? Endless
wars do not bring peace to any-
one.
