NH Fish & Game Offering Apprentice Hunting Licenses______
A Walk In The Woods_______ by David Falkenham
"TAKE A FRIEND
MAKE A HUNTER"
This year, New Hampshire is
once again offering the
Apprentice Hunting License, an
opportunity for sharing or par-
ticipating in the hunting experi-
ence. First offered in New
Hampshire in 2012, the license
allows people to hunt, under the
guidance of an experienced
hunter age 18 or older, without
first taking a Hunter Education
course. In instituting the pro-
gram, New Hampshire followed
the lead of thirty states that have
established apprentice hunting
programs.
The Apprentice License costs
the same as a regular resident or
nonresident hunting license and
is valid from date of purchase
through the end of the calendar
year. It is available to state resi-
dents as well as nonresidents.
You can purchase an Apprentice
License just once in your life-
time. After that, you have to
take a Hunter Education class in
order to buy a hunting license.
Apprentice licenses can be pur-
chased only at Fish and Game
headquarters, 11 Hazen Drive in
Concord, or by mail (visit
http://www.wildnh.com/Licensi
ng/license_forms.htm for an
application.)
In its premiere year, the
Story continues on page A3
By David Falkenham,
UNH Cooperative Extension

The sun rises and starts to warm
the forest, bringing to life what
was engulfed in a dark silence
only moments earlier. A leaden
sky shows through the cold leaf-
less November trees and time
goes by like the slow drip of
spring sap. Steam rises from my
face with each breath and the
cold morning air nips at my only
exposed skin. Through the
slowly rising concert of squir-
rels and forest chatter I listen
intently for the sound that I
came specifically to hear; the
slow purposeful footfalls of an
approaching deer. It is finally
opening day.
Opening day means many
things to many people and
sometimes even non-hunters get
caught up in the frenzy. In
September there are the opening
days of bear season and archery
deer season. October brings the
openers for small game and
migratory birds. Then finally in
November comes the opener for
deer with a muzzle-loader and
then rifle. For many of us these
days mark the beginning of the
holiday season every year.
No matter what game you hunt,
opening day means something
special to every hunter. It is a
Christmas-morning like antici-
pation that is preceded by the
eve of opening day. On this eve
every hunter can be found stay-
ing up late (often keeping other
family members awake) and
fidgeting over their equipment
making final preparations for
morning. Rifles and shotguns
are oiled, blades are sharpened,
ammunition is religiously
placed in its proper location,
clothing is pulled out of boxes
and hunting coats, pants, vests,
hats and gloves are hung on
hooks or over chairs when there
are no more hooks left.
I’m a fool to think my dogs
don’t anticipate the opening day
of grouse season. The bird vests
were never washed after last
season and the shotguns in the

Apprentice License proved
quite popular. In 2012, a total of
1,666 Apprentice Licenses were
sold. Of these 427 were pur-
chased by women. "It was excit-
ing to see the number of
younger people who participat-
ed," said Wildlife Programs
Supervisor Kent Gustafson. He
noted that the vast majority of
apprentice licenses were sold to
people age 16-34, a demograph-
ic that bodes well for the future
of hunting in New Hampshire.
The Apprentice License is
expected to be a big hit this year
as well.
Learn more about the apprentice
license, including tips for both
apprentice hunters and those
who accompany them, at
http://www.huntnh.com/Huntin
g/apprentice.html.
In a nutshell, here's how the
Apprentice License works:
* One-time opportunity: You
can purchase an Apprentice
Hunting License only once in
your lifetime. If you want to
hunt in a future year, you must
first complete a hunter educa-
tion course, then buy a regular
New Hampshire hunting
license.
* Accompanied: The licensed
apprentice hunter is allowed to
hunt only when accompanied by
a properly licensed hunter age
18 or older. "Accompanied"
means maintaining physical
direction and control (keeping
the apprentice within sight and
hearing at all times, without the
use of electronic devices).
* Cost: The apprentice hunting
license costs the same as a regu-
lar resident or nonresident hunt-
ing license.
* Restrictions: The Apprentice
License may not be used to hunt
moose and does not apply to the
three-day small game license.

“Incessantly scouring the uni-
verse (and my back yard) for
the weird, the wacky, and the
stupid so you don’t have to.”
Greetings, and thanks for join-
ing me for another week. First,
such a doggie thing to do.... Bill
Flowers’ dog Liberty recently
showed up at his house with a
full human leg — from toes to
the hip. Flowers told KOMO-TV
he thought about calling the
police but buried the leg in the
back yard. “I’m 93 years old,”
he said. “I didn’t want to have to
go to the pen for something I
didn’t do.” Four days later, his
daughter arrived. She said,
“Dad, we have to call the
police.” So the next day the
sheriff’s office put a tracking
collar on Liberty and deployed
five other search dogs along
with 30 volunteers. The trained
dogs found a skull, pelvis and a
rib cage in nearby woods.
Next, meeting the challenge!
Police Officer Jody Putnam was
called to a store where store
employees noticed a squirrel
inside. Putnam allegedly dealt
with the issue by pulling his
firearm and shooting at the ani-
mal — inside the store. When
that failed to get the intended
results, Putnam allegedly
switched to pepper spray.
“There was a lot of people that
come out and just like me they
came out and they were cough-
ing and a-hacking,” said a wit-
ness. The town’s Board of
Mayor and Alderman fired
Putnam — not because he’d
shot at the squirrel, but because
he refused to file a report after
the incident. [WBIR]
Finally, too much money and
not enough brains? Some years
ago, Swiss watchmaker Romain
Jerome introduced the
“Day&Night” watch, which
unfortunately does not provide a
reading of the hour or the
minute. Though it retails for
about $300,000, it only tells
whether it is “day” or “night”
(using a complex measurement
of the Earth’s gravity).
Company CEO Yvan Arpa said
studies show that two-thirds of
rich people “don’t (use) their
watch to tell what time it is,”
anyway. Anyone can buy a
watch that tells time, he said,
but only a “truly discerning cus-
tomer” will buy one that does-
n’t. [Wall Street Journal]
(Scratching my head!)
“Discerning’? I have a better
word.
So how many animals are “put
to sleep” (euphemism for
‘killed’) every day in the US?
That asked, why can’t the same
procedures be used on death
row inmates? There should be
an easy answer... unless there’s
something wrong with the
method used on animals.
Who are the lowest of the low?
In no particular order: child and
animal abusers, bullies, looters,
vandals, and punks. A few
examples: (1) A middle school
student is facing charges after
police say he hit another kid in
the head with a book bag on the
bus knocking him unconscious.
[WDTN] (2) Responding to
reports of widespread looting on
typhoon-ravaged Leyte Island,
Philippines President Benigno
Aquino III ordered the deploy-
ment of additional police and
military personnel to the area.
[Agence France-Presse] (3) A
shooting at a house party near
Houston left two high school
students dead and 19 other peo-
ple injured, the Harris County
sheriff said. The shooting start-
ed at a birthday party in a two-
story home, where more than
100 people were gathered,
police said. Harris County
Sheriff Adrian Garcia described
it as “a birthday party gone
wild.” [CNN] (4) The
Veterinarian Report states res-
cued dog Rosie was “extremely
emaciated,” “severely covered
in fleas and flea dirt,” “has
severe dental disease” as well as
“tapeworms” when she was
found in October. “[Her] ears
were so bad that there was pus
coming out of them and the
smell was just horrific.” “This
dog was just thrown outside and
forgotten about,” says Patti
McRae, Executive Director of
the Quad City Animal Welfare
Center. “Neglected. Total neg-
lect.” If found guilty, McRae
says the most the owner could
face is a fine. Someone is lucky
I have no say in the punishment.
Police say a popular jacket
sparked a shooting at an ice rink
that injured a man and may
leave a 14-year-old boy para-
lyzed. Corey Dunton, 16,
allegedly opened fire after the
owner of a Marmot brand jacket
known as a “Biggie” refused to
give it up. But this isn’t the first
time shots have been fired over
one of these coats or other pop-
ular items of clothing. It’s a
human instinct that dates back
to biblical times — so strong it’s
listed as one of the 10
Commandments: “Thou shalt
not covet thy neighbor’s house,
wife, or possessions.”
Sometimes people go to
extreme measures to get their
hands on what others have.
[PIX11]
Recently our three horses got
out. Without going into details, I
took off after them with no plan,
but it wasn’t a fair fight – there
were three of them and one of
me. I won’t tell you what my
thoughts went as I followed
them. By the time it was all
over, the odds had evened out
when two wonderful people
stopped their cars (trucks, actu-
ally) and joined me in my recov-
ery efforts. A day that could
have turned out as one of the
worst tragedies of my life (they
made it onto the highway),
ended happily. One of the things
I love about NH is how many
people are there to help when
it’s really needed.
Later.

Atticus on Square Ledge with
Mount Washington in the background.
The notches can fool you, espe-
cially when winter comes for its
annual visit. It’s especially so in
Franconia and Crawford, and
while less so in Pinkham, the
wind and cold conspire to make
you think it’s much worse than
it really is. The trick is to
remember that as soon as you
step away from the wind tunnel
near the road and enter the for-
est, the wind becomes a non-
factor. silent.
That’s the way it was
Wednesday in Pinkham Notch.
Stepping out of the car was a
chilling (literally) experience.
The parking lot at the
Appalachian Mountain Club
was icy with small drifts of
snow and repeated gusts bat-
tered us. After crossing Route
16, I put my MicroSpikes on
and we started down the Lost
Pond Trail. Once in the sun
dappled woods the wind was a
silent memory as we walked
carefully over the tumult of
rocks, planks, and frozen
ground along the Ellis River
toward the pond.
I was happy to see Atticus mov-
ing gaily ahead of me, ears flop-
ping, legs with a spring to them,
and a gleam in his eyes whenev-
er I caught up to him. Quite
frankly, that’s not how it’s been
over the past month since
chemo treatment number four.
His weekly blood work has been
great, his appetite strong, and
he’s downright gleeful when we
are out driving from store to
store and meeting our friends.
But where once we walked three
times on those days we didn’t
hike, totaling about four miles,
he’s now only doing a single
walk a mile in length. He does-
n’t want to do much more than
that.
One of our favorite hikes, along
the Hedgehog loop, is five miles
of heaven to us. We return to
the root-crossed trails, open
ledges, and expansive views as
if returning to an old friend and
the mountain always welcomes
us. We know it so well I think
we could walk the trails blind-
folded. But on a perfectly
sunny day last week, with mild
temperatures and the pleasant
scent of autumn everywhere, at
the one-mile mark, Atticus
stopped and looked at me.
“You okay?” I asked.
In response he sat while contin-
uing to hold my eyes with his.
“Do you want to turn back and
head home?”
With that, he stood up, gave me
a knowing look, and started
back the way we came. He
moved easily enough, didn’t
seem tired, but he knows him-
self well. For him to not want to
hike says a great deal. That’s as
far as we’ve gone in the last few
weeks.
I’m reminded by those who
know more about chemotherapy
than I, about the cumulative
consequence. The poison kills
cancer cells, but it is a cold-
blooded killer that has no con-
science about killing good cells,
as well. Chemo is but a hired
mercenary, brought in to fight
another bully. The body
becomes a battlefield and at
times, a wasteland.
We knew this going into it, but
it’s still tough to watch. We’re
now five treatments into the six
Atticus will have, and I am
quick to point out that this was
my choice. To hunt down the
possibility of hiding cancer cells
and get rid of them, instead of
just sitting back with fingers
crossed and wishful thoughts.
We walked toward the fire, and
I’m happy we did.
Over the past few months, we
dealt a bit with vomiting and
diarrhea and some strange side
effects. However, Dr. Rachael
Kleidon and I adjusted the plan,
and Atticus has adjusted, too.
That’s made things better. But
what we are dealing with now is
like an invisible blanket of quiet
exhaustion. Atticus knows what
he would like to do as he springs
down the stairs on our way to a
walk, but a hundred yards down
the road he stops and wants to
turn back.
I remind myself his energy will
return when the chemotherapy
stops after next month’s final
treatment. I also know we are
where we are supposed to be.
Neither one of us does the pity
party thing. There is no “poor
me” or “poor us”. (I even go so
far as to have the moderators
delete well-meaning comments
on our Following Atticus
Facebook page when people
write, “Poor baby.” I just don’t
like the whole victim thing.)
When we made it down to Lost
Pond and turned back the way
we came, I was thrilled to see
Atticus decide to go up the trail
to Square Ledge, instead of
heading back to the car. And it
felt right to me, too. The sound
of our feet against the snow, the
bite of my MicroSpikes, the soft
stab of my trekking poles in
powder, the way Atticus kicked
up powder as we moved up the
trail.
The entire hike from trailhead to
the top of Square Ledge is only
half a mile, but it climbs five
hundred feet in elevation, with
most of it coming in the last
couple of hundred yards of trail.
It’s steep…extremely so. The
rocks are a rugged mess, as if
someone has blown up the
mountain. You have to be care-
ful where you step. So while it
was only a half mile up, it was
about as intense a half mile as
any you see in the White
Mountains. Yet there was
Atticus, bounding from rock to
rock, wading through snow
drifts, striding into sun and
shadow under a brilliant blue
sky that comes with subzero
wind chill days.
Neither one of us is in good
shape these days. It’s been the
least amount of hiking we’ve
ever done in spring, summer,
and fall. Add to that the
chemotherapy, and it’s a wild-
card about how Atticus will feel
on any given trek.
But for this one day; this one
startling, beautiful, breathtaking
day, when wind and cold gave
us a taste of what is to come, we
climbed as we’ve done thou-
sands of times before, chemo
and cancer merely backdrops to
the main act in front of me. As
we climbed, I watched, I smiled,
at times I even laughed out loud
as Atticus was who he has
always been on the trails and
will be soon enough again.
Once on top, Atticus walked to
the edge, sat on the windswept
rock, and looked out at Mount
Washington in her glorious
white gown. So beautiful! Both
mountain and dog. I gave him
some time until he got up,
walked over to me, and nudged
my leg with his nose. I picked
him up, our bodies pressed
together, our faces side-by-side,
and he sighed, let his body
weight relax into my arm and
chest, and we took communion
together.
In the frigid temperatures my
hair had grown some icicles and
I found that cold tears were run-
ning down my cheeks. I didn’t
feel sad, nor did I think I was
crying, but when I felt his
tongue kiss them away while
they flowed, I realized the tears
were for happiness and beauty
and this peace we share togeth-
er. Being a fifty-two year old
man, not a lot brings me to tears,
but being there on the open
ledge with Atticus in the midst
of all we’ve been through and
are going through, I found a
great release. My small friend
twisted his body in my arms so
that he could look at me. He
took one paw and put it on the
far side of my neck and draped
his head over my shoulder and
together we stood silently and
happy.
By the end of the day we had
hiked no more than two miles,
but it came at a perfect time. It
came the day before our next to
the last chemotherapy treat-
ment. It came when we hadn’t
been hiking. It came when we
needed to feel and not just see
the mountains. Sometimes all
we need is a bit of trail, a short
mountain experience, a view
shared with a hiking partner,
and we are renewed and ready
for whatever comes our way.
This morning when Rachael
Kleidon injected the poison to
kill a greater poison into his
front right leg, Atticus rested his
head on my hand, and relaxed
he napped. I respect Atticus too
much to put words in his mouth
or to try to tell people what he
would say if he could, but I’d
like to think that as the
chemotherapy was taking place,
the medication he and I both
needed had already been
received yesterday, standing
above Pinkham Notch, keeping
company with the greatest of
New England mountains, the
one once called Agiochook.

corner have a smell of oil and
gunpowder. What smells good
to me is simply intoxicating to
the dogs and they too will sleep
fitfully tonight.
Early morning on opening day,
an old bird-dog, possibly in his
last years, will walk stiffly into
his family’s bedroom and wake
them with a warm, wet poke
from his greying muzzle. It’s
opening day and he knows it.
His age does not dampen his
spirit for a cold morning and
this feeling is felt by all hunters,
young or old, who will rise early
and take to the woods. Opening
day dials back the clocks for
every hunter and makes us all
feel just a little bit stronger.
The protection and management
of our local wildlife and wild
places is something that most
folks take for granted, however

Hello friends of nature and wel-
come to this week’s edition of
Nature Tracks...
PLAY IT SAFE:
WEAR BLAZE ORANGE
Hunters and other outdoor
enthusiasts are encouraged to
put on a bright orange article of
clothing when they head afield
this fall. Wearing a fluorescent
orange hat, vest or jacket makes
you highly visible in the woods,
one of several key safety pre-
cautions for hunters, hikers and
others enjoying the autumn
woods.
"Wearing blaze orange has defi-
nitely been shown to decrease
hunting incidents across the
country," said Josh Mackay,
who coordinates the Hunter
Education Program at the New
Hampshire Fish and Game
Department. "It is important for
outdoors enthusiasts generally,
but especially for hunters,
because the overwhelming
majority of hunting-related inci-
dents involve members of hunt-
ing parties."
Mackay stressed that, along
with wearing blaze orange, the
top safety rules for hunters are
controlling the muzzle of your
gun at all times and positively
identifying your target -- and
what's beyond -- 100 percent of
the time.
Overall, New Hampshire has an
excellent record for hunter safe-
ty, largely attributable to the
state's effective hunter educa-
tion programs. The average
number of hunting-related inci-
dents per year has gone down
each decade since mandatory
hunter education classes
became required in the 1970s.
The 1960s saw an average of
21.4 incidents per year in New
Hampshire. Fewer incidents
have occurred each decade
since, with an average of 2.8
incidents per year since 2002.
Serious incidents are even rarer
-- only four hunting-related
fatalities have occurred in the
state in the last 10 years.
While most hunting-related
incidents do not involve non-
hunters, it's a good idea for hik-
ers and other outdoor enthusi-
asts getting out to enjoy the fall
woods to think safety as well,
by sticking to established trails,
reviewing the hikeSafe guide-
l i n e s
(http://www.hikesafe.com), and
wearing an article of blaze
orange clothing during hunting
seasons, which are already
underway in the Granite State.
Blaze orange pet accessories are
also available.

always, please take time to enjoy
the natural world around you.
Bath, NH- New Hampshire
Executive Councilor and
Grafton County
Commissioner Raymond S.
Burton, 74, of River Road, died
peacefully at his home, the
Burton Family Farm, on
Tuesday, November 12, 2013.
Raymond was born in
Burlington, VT, on August 13,
1939, to Stephen J. and Natalie
(Hill) Burton. He attended the
Bath Village School, then grad-
uated from Woodsville High
School, Class of 1958.
Following his high school grad-
uation, he earned his Bachelor
Degree in Education from
Plymouth State College in 1962.
As an educator, he taught for a
short time in Andover and as a
teaching principal at the Warren
Village School and Springfield
College.
In his public life, Raymond will
forever be known for his life-
long dedication to the people of
New Hampshire, particularly
the residents of the North
Country, whom he has continu-
ously served as Executive
Councilor for District 1 since
1981. He often stated that, “We
cannot let anybody in Concord
forget that there’s life north of
Concord. We have to tell them
to start looking out their north
windows.” Throughout his fifty
plus years of service, he has
received multiple forms of
recognition. He was proud of
being a sponsor for the YMCA
Youth in Government Program,
involving high school students
in the process of government.
He initiated the student intern
program for high school and
college students to obtain expe-
rience in government. In 2010,
he was a recipient of the Granite
State Award and the Blair Award
in 2013 from his alma mater,
Plymouth State, for his excep-
tional contributions to the State.
He also was presented with the
White Mountains Treasure
Award by the Mt. Washington
Chamber of Commerce for his
dedication to the North Country.
Councilor Burton attended
functions throughout his
District and belonged to multi-
ple committees and organiza-
tions, including the Grafton
Kane Masonic Lodge # 46 of
North Haverhill, NH; Chairman
of the Bath Town Republican
Committee, Clerk of the
Grafton County Board of
Commissioners, member of the
Governor’s Highway Advisory
Council, member of the Grafton
County Conservation District,
member of the NH Farm
Bureau, member of the Pine
Grove Grange (7th Degree), and
a member of the United Church
of Christ in Bath. In recent years
and weeks there had been dedi-
cations of the Raymond S.
Burton Bridge on Route 135 in
Woodsville, the Ray Burton
Park at the Grafton County
Complex, the Raymond S.
Burton Commons in North
Woodstock, and two weeks ago,
the Raymond S. Burton
Overlook in Bretton Woods, to
name but a few.
Raymond never put himself
first. It could be said that his
credo was, “I am third.”
Growing up in Bath, the Church
was a very important part of
family life. Even with his busy
schedule, he would be found
playing the organ for the
Sunday service. The North
Country and New Hampshire
were then second in his life. He
was always available to his con-
stituents and assisted them in
every way possible. He put
himself third. Service to others
was his life….”Burton for
Certain.”
Raymond was predeceased by
his father, Stephen Burton on
January 12, 1964 and by his
mother, Natalie Burton Grimes
on February 28, 2013, and his
step father, Gerald Grimes on
February 2, 1991.
He is survived by two sisters,
Mary Grimes and husband Ken
of Columbia, NH and Joan Day
and husband Dan of Concord,
NH; a brother, Stephen Burton
and wife Martha of Hanover,
NH; a niece, Donna Frye and
her daughter, Breanna of
Witchita Falls, TX; a nephew,
Jay Grimes and wife Judy and
their sons, Jacob and Jace of
Columbia, NH; a step sister,
Helen M. Smith of Haverhill,
NH; an aunt, Evelyn Prescott of
Sanbornton, NH; along with
several cousins.
There will be no calling hours.
A private service for family and
members of the Bath
Community will be held at the
Bath Congregational Church.
The public is welcome to attend
a service of celebration and
remembrance of Ray’s life that
will be held on December 14 at
1 PM at Plymouth State
University, Student Union
Building, High Street,
Plymouth, NH.
In lieu of flowers, memorial
contributions may be made to
the Raymond S. Burton
Scholarship Fund, PO Box 17,
Bath, NH 03740.

Another week, some sun, some
rain and some snow has greeted
us since the last issue. My, what
a difference a day can make.
I wasn’t even going to touch this
one with a 50’ pole, but it just
keeps rearing its ugly head. So I
guess I shall.
So, let’s talk about the govern-
ment website for health care
shall we. (As my hackles go up).
I won’t even get in to the
Obamacare program, my prob-
lem is with the government in
general and their deployment of
this cluster of a website that
people have to go on to seek
their healthcare program.
My wife, as frustrated as she
can get, has tried to get through
the website on at least 20 occa-
sions. Sometimes she gets on it,
sometimes she doesn’t.
Sometimes she can get to a new
screen, other times NO!
What in the world where they
thinking when this was unveiled
to the millions of people that are
told to use it?
Oh, for you people who think I
am hopping on Obama about
this, you are absolutely correct.
He is after all, the President of
these United States, but I cer-
tainly don’t blame him alone.
Oh no, I blame everyone that
had their hand in this, trying to
bring it about. It could have
been Abraham Lincoln for all I
care! But this certainly didn’t go
as planned and is the laughing
stock of the world.
In owning even a small busi-
ness, you have to plan, work on
it and test things before you do
them. Yes TEST things to see if it
is going to work. Do you think
Facebook just appeared out of
the blue without properly testing
it first? No way! And let me ask
you this, how is it that Facebook
founder, Mark Zuckerberg and
his friends were able to put
something together as elaborate
as Facebook, have millions of
people using it on a daily basis
and have it work - when our
government can’t even put a
website together for the people
of the country that functions? I
don’t get it.
Why not pay some of these peo-
ple like the founder of
Facebook, Youtube, Myspace or
the many other brilliant com-
puter people to offer assistance.
Seemingly, they know how to do
it and our government does not.
How do you release something
as important as healthcare pro-
grams, ask people to visit the
site to sign up, have a deadline
to do so and not have it work. It
is shameful. We are supposed to
be, or should I say, used be the
country that everyone looked up
to, fashioned things after and
were jealous of - today, not so
much.
There are other countries who
are far ahead of the US. There
are third world countries that
have high speed internet avail-
able to every one of their peo-
ple. We still have people in this
country on dial up service!
When you can message, skype,
and use facebook throughout a
third world country, but can’t
even get a cell signal here in the
White Mountains of NH, some-
thing is very wrong.
Stop apologizing and get one of
the local kids to fix the website
Washington! Period.

This is in response to the letter
To The Editor in the Oct.
25th issue:
I agree with everything David
Ball stated in his letter to the
North Country News except one
fact: this is not only part-timers
to Warren.
For the last twelve years we
have dealt with gunshots, fire-
works, foul language, and par-
tying at all hours from all direc-
tions in our neighborhood.
I do agree that the worst of it
does come from across the river.
They certainly have no respect
for their neighbors and nothing
has been done to completely
stop it.
We have lost a lot of business
from this, customers will come
up to our house very upset, they
think they are being attacked,
it's that close!
We have had the State and local
police here numerous times but
it hasn't stopped much of the
problem. They get spoken to but
as soon as the police leave, they
start in again. They would not
get away with this anyplace else
so why do they get away with it
in our normally quiet town?
This is driving business away
that affects many business own-
ers in town. Many customers
have asked us if there is a noise
ordinance in town but after
many letters to the Selectmen
and petitions what we hear is "
there is nothing we can do".
Why is that? Surely, the people
of Warren deserve to live in a
quiet environment like all others
in the State.
The huge bonfires are another
cause for concern. With no run-
ning water available to put out a
fire and the drunken condition
of people, the whole town would
burn if a fire got out of hand.
I will be the first person to help
with a "respect for others" res-
olution in the Town of Warren.
Where do I sign up?

On October 12th, we held our
Ninth Annual “Make-An-Offer”
yard sale at the Warren Town
Hall. The proceeds from this
event benefits local charities.
This year, $1,042 is being
donated to the Warren-
Wentworth Food Pantry.
Since government support is
being pared back and since the
need is increasing, the commu-
nity has responded with over-
whelming support for their
neighbors in need. Thanks to all
who participated. The food
pantry is open Fridays from 1-3.

You never said I’m leaving
You never said goodbye,
you were gone before we knew it
And only “God” knows why,
A million times we’ve needed you
A million times we’ve cried,
If love alone could have saved you
You never would have died,
In life we loved you dearly
In death we love you still,
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you did not go alone,
For a part of us went with you
The day “God” called you home,
The tears still drip from our hearts
We love you and miss you our dearest one

Inspiring Words for You!
Dear Friends, this is a time of year
when thankfulness is more on our lips than
usual. But it should always be on our lips and
in our hearts. Here are some scriptures to use
in your daily thanksgivings to God.; Psalm
136:1; Ephesians 1:16; James 1:17;
1Thess.5:18; Psalm 107:1; Eph.5:20; Psalm
50:23; Matthew 6:21; Psalm 100:1-5; Psalm
118:28-29; John 11:41; 1Tim.2:1; Psalm
105:1; 2Cor.2:14. There are so many more.
But I think these are a good start. Wake up
and end your day with thanksgiving to the
Lord. It blesses Him and in turn blesses
you.Remember to always be thankful.
God bless u all.

I recently received a telephone
call from a customer about and
e-mail she had received, the e-
mail read;
Dear Pay Pal Customer,
We regret to inform you that
after regular review of your
account we have found prob-
lems with the information you
have provided us. To keep your
account active you must pro-
vide us with a **valid** credit
card information within 24
hours after receiving this e-
mail. www.paypal.com
Pay Pal Customer relations.
Or; Dear Western Union
Clients, We are sorry for
invoice. we had some errors in
our data , Please update your
profile . You can access your
profile at https://wumt.wester-
nunion.com/asp/regLogin.asp/.
For help please contact Western
Union Customer Service imme-
diately by email at customerser-
vice@westernunion.com or call
us at 1-877-989-3268 .
Thank you for using wester-
nunion.com
The customer clicked on a link
to a web site that appeared to be
official. Before the customer
had entered any information she
called me and asked about this
e-mail. I informed her not to
enter any personal information
and to disregard the e-mail. This
type of e-mail is part of a scam
called Phishing. What appears
to be a legitimate web site for
example Best Buy, Citibank or
eBay is actually a scam to try to
get your money. There are many
forms this e-mail may take, the
scammers copy the actual logo
from a legitimate site, like Pay
Pal or AOL and create their own
web page, then lure unsuspect-
ing people into their trap with an
e-mail.
The con artist try to get your
personal information such as
bank account numbers and cred-
it card information. They
defraud their victims by setting
up fake web sites. Then they ask
the victim to “confirm” personal
information and account details
and then phishers them off.
These types of scams have been
around for years, and thanks to
the internet the scammers can sit
back and let the internet do the
work for them. The phishing
attacks are increasing each
month at an average of 50 per-
cent according to the Anti-
Phishing Working Group, which
monitors these attacks.
There are ways to protect your-
self when you receive an e-mail
that asks for your personal
information. Keep in mind that
a legitimate business such as
FDIC who deals only with
banks would never send you an
e-mail asking for personal infor-
mation. Financial Institutions
would call you if there is a prob-
lem with your account and
would not send you an e-mail.
Also, ask yourself do you have
an account with the business,
like AOL or Pay Pal, if you do
not then you know it is not a
legitimate e-mail. Call the com-
pany in question and ask them if
the e-mail is legitimate a scam-
mer would never put their tele-
phone number on an e-mail. I
also recommend that you install
a program from www.core-
street.com called spoofstick you
can download the program at
www.spoofstick.com. There are
versions for Internet Explorer
and Mozilla Firefox , it will
work on a Mac if running
Firefox as your web browser.
Once installed the program will
display on your browser what
web site you are currently on. If
the site is eBay spoofstick will
display www.ebay.com in large
bold type, if however the link
you click on in the phishers e-
mail is fake it would display an
address such as 128.193.5.10 or
some other address other than
the legitimate web site .
If you have any questions please
e-mail me a
paigecs@gmail.com, and I will
answer them in my next article

Making a difference
Dear EarthTalk: While work-
ing to protect public land from
resource extraction and devel-
opment seems to be the focus of
many environmental groups,
what is being done to preserve
and protect private property—
the majority of our land—across
the country? -- Jim Friedland,
Bath, ME
Indeed, private property makes
up about 60 percent of the total
land base across the United
States. In 42 states there is more
private land than public, and by
a wide margin in most cases.
(Only Alaska, Nevada, Utah,
Idaho, Oregon, Arizona,
Wyoming and California have
more public land—that is, land
owned by a federal, state, coun-
ty or municipal government—
than private.) Of course, all this
private land isn’t just the parcels
where our houses sit. It includes
most commercial, industrial and
agricultural lands as well.
What we each do on our own
private property may be our
own business, but whether and
how we take care of it does
impact the public good and the
health of ecosystems near and
far. One way each of us can do
our part is by cultivating native
plants and landscaping around
our homes and businesses to
increase habitat for local
wildlife. As development slowly
but surely swallows up open
space, every backyard counts.
The National Wildlife
Federation’s (NWF’s) Certified
Wildlife Habitat program pro-
vides homeowners with infor-
mation and inspiration to make
their backyards part of the solu-
tion.
Meanwhile, millions of
Americans have used local land
trusts to put conservation ease-
ments on their properties that
preclude future development.
The Washington, DC-based
Land Trust Alliance serves as a
clearinghouse for information
on obtaining conservation ease-
ments and other private land
protections through one of the
1,700 local land trusts across the
country. And the Virginia-based
Nature Conservancy has helped
protect upwards of 15 million
acres of private land across the
U.S. by buying at-risk parcels,
putting conservation easements
on them and seeing that they are
managed sustainably moving
forward.
As for conservation on working
lands, the American Farmland
Trust has helped thousands of
farmers and ranchers across the
country protect over five mil-
lion acres of private agricultural
and grazing land through con-
servation easements and other
tools designed to limit the con-
version to non-agricultural uses.
There are also smaller regional-
ly focused groups that work on
private lands conservation.
Stewardship Partners works
with Washington state home-
owners and businesses to
restore fish and wildlife habitat,
improve water quality, protect
open space and “green up” the
built environment while main-
taining working landscapes of
farms, forestland and livable
communities. The group has
helped hundreds of farms and
vineyards across the state iden-
tify ways to restore otherwise
unproductive lands for the bet-
terment of local ecosystems,
and is helping thousands of
homeowners across the state
install “rain gardens” that utilize
rainfall to save water and reduce
run-off pollution in and around
the Seattle area.
Another pioneering private
lands conservation group, the
Pacific Forest Trust, works with
owners of private forestlands
throughout California, Oregon
and Washington to preserve
working forests and keep sus-
tainable forest practices alive
and well in some of the coun-
try’s most productive timber
forests. To date the group has
helped conserve upwards of
50,000 acres of private forest-
land in the region through con-
servation easements and other
means.

Dark Evenings
The days are rapidly shortening,
and the cold gradually getting
colder. Snow and rain exchange
places and an autumnal mud
season begins. With this shift-
ing of the year, the urgency of
outdoor work is diminishing.
The garden is largely done, with
only kale, broccoli, and a few
petite brussel sprouts holding on
through the falling tempera-
tures. Our wood is split,
stacked, and under cover, a
decent pile that will take us
through next summer and into
autumn. While wood is an
ongoing task, we can relax in
our pursuit of firewood for a
few months. We do have a new
trail through the woods from the
property’s edge to our cabin,
with finishing touches still to be
done – but the heftiest work of
building bridges has been com-
pleted.
As a result, we’re certainly
inside more this time of year.
The evenings are long, and
growing longer. With the sun
setting just shy of 4:30pm, we
can’t quite go to bed with the
sun. To prolong our days a few
hours, we use an oil lamp, and
headlamps as finer work neces-
sitates.
This, predictably, draws many
comments – mostly from skep-
tics. The prevailing opinion
seems to be that our shadowy
light is limiting, difficult,
unpleasant, or out-and-out
unlivable. While I am quite
familiar with these arguments, I
must state my fondness for these
dusky hours of each evening.
We let the shadows grow long
over dinner, stretching the min-
utes before we light the oil
lamp. Once the match is struck,
a warm glow lights our table,
and stretches, faintly, to the
cozy corners.
Yes, it’s true, we will likely
make a solar panel powered
improvement in the future, if for
no other reason than that Ryan
wears glasses and would appre-
ciate stronger light. But for
now, I relish the dark as much as
the light.
Our evenings are as simple as
our lamp’s flame. As we con-
clude dinner, which is a slow
affair with no rush beyond the
strength of our appetites, we
clean the cast iron and stack the
dishes. Next is coffee, for Ryan,
and hot water for me. We’ll talk
of the day, or the day to come,
our thoughts, our plans, the
news we’ve heard and our reac-
tion to it. Often we dwell on the
challenges of modernity and the
struggles of those closest to us.
Our conversation easily leads to
questions, and thus we turn to
our shelves of books. A quest
for an answer always leads to
something else. Some days call
for quieter evenings, and then
we read – sometimes to our-
selves, sometimes to each other.
We sit with Mica on the couch;
we laugh; we write letters.
And when we go to sleep, I
imagine that it’s earlier than
many. A long night’s rest is the
treat of such short days. If other
commitments draw me out, it’s
these simple evenings that I
miss. Simple, yes; personal,
cozy, creative. I love these
dusky hours.

Health Care Reform
and Obamacare
While congress continues to
role play an unconvincing fight
between Democrats and
Republicans, has anyone
noticed that no matter who
wins, the health insurance com-
panies stand to make a tidy
haul?
Is anyone surprised that health
insurance companies cancelled
so many policies? Built in to the
Obamacare plan were enough
clauses to expand coverage for
which, of course, companies
would continue to offer cover-
age, but at a gut wrenching
increase in price for inflated
coverage. People whose income
is just over the poverty line are
the most threatened if they trust
their insurance companies.
They’re already struggling to
survive and risk being sucked
into poverty unless they check
out subsidies they are entitled
to.
While some of the health insur-
ance companies have got to be
laughing themselves all the way
to the bank, alert state insurance
commissioners like Kentucky’s
Sharon Clark know how to pull
the rug out from under the sting
of companies like Humana.
Humana sent out letters that
encouraged customers to do
nothing and their new policy
would include all the
Obamacare requirements (but at
a much higher price they would
learn of later.) Kentucky not
only fined Humana for sending
out misleading information let-
ters to customers, they freed
2200 respondents from their
obligation to Humana and
allowed them to shop for insur-
ance through the Obamacare
with a start date of Oct. 1, (for a
much better deal), according to
Dylan Scott of Reader
Supported News.
Also in the news this week was
the World Happiness Report
2013, put out by the Earth
Institute at Columbia
University, which identified six
factors that happiest countries
have in common: a large GDP
per capita, healthy life
expectancy at birth, lack of cor-
ruption in leadership, a sense of
social support, freedom to make
life choices, and a culture of
generosity.
Denmark, Norway, Switzerland,
Netherlands and Sweden topped
the list. In Denmark, health care
is a civil right, Danes feel a
responsibility to each other
reflected in a high rate of volun-
teerism. Danes create a real
sense of belonging as a civic
duty that includes economic
security and a work-life balance
to support it. Happy countries
have very little direct involve-
ment in war or other conflicts.
US ranked 17th on the list.
We would do well to learn from
happy countries as we grapple
with health care, food, water,
energy, education, employment,
and environmental issues that
affect us all. What would it be
like to see a drastic reduction in
the unemployment, terrorism
and chronic illness that we
allow to keep us bumped down
the line?
