Three-State Reciprocal Snowmobile
Weekend Slated_______________________
Continued from page A1
The Three-State Reciprocal weekend will occur annually in
January /February (Friday, Saturday and Sunday), provided that
our neighboring states continue to participate. The specific dates
for each winter’s reciprocal weekend will be determined annual-
ly during a scheduled summer meeting.
"Over the last two seasons, this reciprocal opportunity has proven
to be one of the busiest snowmobile weekends of the entire sea-
son. It has helped provide a significant financial boost for North
Country businesses, including lodging, restaurants, rental agents,
convenience stores and other area businesses," said Captain John
Wimsatt, who oversees the N.H. Fish and Game Department’s
Snowmobile and OHRV Law Enforcement, Safety Education and
Registry programs.

North Country Chorus's 33rd
annual Madrigal Dinner enti-
tled "The Queen's Play" will be
presented on January 17, 18,
and 19 at the Monroe Town
Hall in Monroe, NH. Queen
Elizabeth I visits Robert
Dudley's Kenilworth Castle for
a festival of food, song, magic,
and dance. She comes also with
a script for the hosts and their
promising new playwright Will
Shakespeare to tackle; it comi-
cally relates the tragic story of
the lovers Pyramus and Thisbe.
Her emissary, the Jester of
Kenilworth, is all too happy to
accommodate her - and then
some.
This event, begun as a fundrais-
er for NCC's 1982 tour of
England, has energized its
members and thrilled audiences
ever since. The shows begin at
6:30 pm on Friday and Saturday
and at 4:30 pm on Sunday.
Tickets are available by
advance sale only through
Catamount Arts and can be pur-
chased online at catamoun-
tarts.org, or by phone at 802-
748-2600 or 888-757-5559 (toll
free), or in person at the
Catamount Arts box office, 115
Eastern Ave, St. Johnsbury, VT.

“Berman’s Bits”
by Dave Berman
“Incessantly scouring the uni-
verse (and my back yard) for
the weird, the wacky, and the
stupid so you don’t have to.”
If I haven’t alienated everyone
with my past couple of
columns, I am back to try again.
If you haven’t noticed, I have
shifted from looking without to
looking more within. I find it
interesting that the most of the
comments people have made to
me (positive) have come about
the more personal observations
rather than so much ‘cut and
paste.’ So....
Hey, Happy New Day! I may
stay up until midnight tonight
(and every night) to welcome
the New Day. Whatever the
next day is, it’s a new day and
unique new date that will never
be repeated. So, what are your
New Day’s resolutions?
Unless you are a Facebook
friend, you probably missed my
birthday! It’s come and gone
with nary a word from any of
you! That’s okay, though; I am
at the point where I’ve stopped
counting (or wish I could). I
have well-passed the 20-some-
thingth anniversary of my 39
th
.
In all honesty, I am starting to
look over my shoulder for a guy
in a black robe following me
holding a scythe. As I tell any-
one who will listen, I may have
30 seconds or 30 years left,
which is actually true for all of
us. As the saying goes, “Live
like you’ll die tomorrow; plan
like you’ll live forever.”
Gotta love some of the deep
thinkers on Facebook. Several
have posted the following quote
supposedly from Senator Diane
Feinstein: “The Senators feel
the best course of action is to
remove all weapons from law
enforcement and private citi-
zens so no one else gets hurt.
When the gunman realizes that
nobody else is armed, he will
lay down his weapons and turn
himself in…. that’s just human
nature.” I am thinking that no
one’s stupid enough to say that
(not even a politician), so I
checked it out. Turns out it was
from a piece of satire but posted
on Facebook as fact and was
accompanied in a couple of
cases by quite the rants. Even
after I pointed it was fake, it
was left up and others kept
posting as if it were gospel!
Think, people – there’s enough
real ‘stuff’ happening that you
don’t have to make it up.
Posting such inaccurate things
just makes you look bad.
Whole lotta learning goin’ on!
Scanning the TV offerings I
found a show: ‘Sex Sent Me to
the ER.’ Um, what does one say
to that one? Only that I hope I
never show up on it. (And it
was on The Learning Channel!
Isn’t that the same channel that
offered you Honey Boo Boo?
Also on the same channel were,
“I Found the Gown,” “Sister
Wives,” “Cake Boss,” “Gypsy
Sisters,” and “My Strange
Addiction.” In all fairness, I
haven’t watched any of the
aforementioned shows and I
presume I could probably learn
something if I did, but I have to
guess learning means some-
thing different today than it did
as I grew up.)
While I do personally like most
of the Sandwich Artists who
work at Subway-in-Wal-Mart
(kind of sounds like Stratford-
upon-Avon... no, it doesn’t), my
first question to the on-duty
sandwich artist when I visit has
become, “So, what are you out
of today?” Do you know what
I mean here, or do I need to
explain? There is a certain taste
I strive for, and even one ingre-
dient is missing (or bread type),
it’s just not the same. In a
broader sense, it seems more
and more often both major
stores in Plymouth are out of
more and more, more often.
I am a newsaholic. I like hard
news, but it’s hard to find it in
the North Country. It is ironic
that I mostly get area news from
Facebook as Channel 9 rarely
ventures north of Concord
(unless it’s a BIG story) and the
local paper is a weekly. One of
the major stories carried on
Channel 9 was how a 12-year-
old girl got her tongue stuck to
a flagpole. Must have been a
really slow news day!
Question of the Week: I am not
a basketball player. Can I still
go to North Korea? Just won-
dering.
On the recommendation of a
bestie, I just watched my first
“Castle.” While the whole
experience was good, the sur-
prise ending came out of left
field and absolutely got me! I
will be looking for further
episodes!
Finally, I am hoping the coldest
weather has come and gone and
the rest of the winter is typical
(I know what I mean).
Later.

The Adventures
of Tom & Atticus
While Atticus continues to
mount his comeback from last
summer’s amputation and half a
year of chemotherapy treat-
ments, we have yet to return to
the trails. Our return will be
here soon enough. So instead
of sharing a trip report with you
in this issue, I’m offering a few
suggestions on places to take
your new snowshoes for a hike.
The other day a friend contact-
ed me. He’s used to going
uphill, but his hiking protégé is
new to the game and has been
struggling with the “up” part of
the hikes lately. He asked for a
suggestion that would be flatter.
I sent them up the Coppermine
Trail to Bridal Veil Falls, and
both of them loved it. It sits on
the backside of Cannon
Mountain, not too far from
Robert Frost’s old home. (The
hike is easy enough and should
not take all day, so take a detour
and check it out.)
The Coppermine Trail starts at
the end of Coppermine Road
and is on the east side of NH
116, about a mile south of the
Franconia Airport. Its 2.5 miles
each way with only 1,100 feet
of elevation gain. The trail fol-
lows Coppermine Brook most
of the way and looks complete-
ly different this time of year
than any other. The snow and
ice are something to behold,
and that’s even before you
make it all the way to the falls.
For a side trip, about a quarter
of a mile into the hike you’ll
come to a flat area to the right
of the trail and just below it.
People often camp there during
the summer. In the water, on a
rock, you will find a plaque left
by Bette Davis for one of her
ex-husbands, Arthur
Farnsworth, which reads, “In
Memoriam to Arthur
Farnsworth, the keeper of stray
ladies. Presented by a Grateful
One.” There’s much more to
this story, and you can find it
on-line but it has to do with
Bette getting lost (perhaps on
purpose) and Arthur finding
her.
Another mostly flat hike is the
Nancy Pond Trail (some say it
is haunted by the ghost of
Nancy Barton). It takes you to
Nancy Cascades for a round trip
of 4.8 miles. All the way to
Nancy Pond and back is 6.8 or
to Norcross Pond it's 8.6. The
view from Norcross Pond up
into the mountains is spectacu-
lar on a good day. During this
season of frozen (or mostly
frozen) waterfalls, Nancy
Cascades is a special treat! The
trailhead is located south of
Crawford Notch on Route 302.
For a hike with a view of val-
leys down below and moun-
tains above, the hike to the top
of Mount Pemigewasset via the
Mount Pemigewasset Trail
from the Flume parking lot and
bike path is a great bang for
your buck hike. It’s 1.8 miles to
the mountaintop with 1,250 feet
of elevation gain. Once on top
you will come to a great open
shelf of rock that’s fine for sun-
ning yourself, even on the cold-
est of days. From there, you
look down on the valley to the
south and out and some distant
peaks. But don’t stop there.
There’s a trail to the left that
brings you to the eastern side of
the mountain with dramatic
views up to Franconia Ridge.
For a steeper climb to the same
peak, you can take the Indian
Head Trail. It begins further
south along US 3, about a quar-
ter of a mile south of the Indian
Head Resort. The parking area,
which is on the left, when com-
ing south, may be plowed out, if
you are lucky. This is a 1.9 mile
hike to the summit with 1,550
feet of elevation gain.
Better yet, if you have the abil-
ity to do a car spot, you can do
a traverse of both trails.
Whenever we are in the
Franconia Notch area for a
hike, a must stop by for us is
Half Baked & Fully Brewed on
the Kancamagus Highway.
They offer great sandwiches,
baked goods, and coffee.
Atticus and I have shared many
of their sandwiches atop a
mountain and now that I’m
vegan, they still have offerings
that are mouthwatering I can
enjoy. .
And lastly, if you are into a seri-
ous climb, are well-equipped,
and have carefully monitored
the higher summits forecast,
our favorite route to the top of
Mount Moosilauke in winter is
the Glenncliff Trail. It is a 3.9
mile hike to the summit with
3,300 feet of elevation gain. On
a windier day, we prefer the
Gorge Brook Trail since it has
less exposure, but on a fair day
in winter, the approach to the
summit is just stunning.
Moosilauke is the tenth highest
peak in the White Mountains
and stands at 4,802 feet with
360 degree views. And if the
wind picks up, you can hunker
down on top of the round bald
peak by hiding behind some of
the blocks left from when a
hotel sat atop the mountain.
As with all of the peaks, please
take responsibility for yourself.
Winter hiking may be beautiful,
but it’s far more dangerous and
offers less margin for error.
Hike wisely so that you don’t
endanger yourself, your hiking
partners, or the people of search
and rescue who will have to
come looking for you.
In winter, your best pieces of
equipment are the latest fore-
cast and a good dose of com-
mon sense. (Snowshoes also
help.)
Enjoy the trails, everyone. We
look forward to being on a
mountaintop soon enough our-
selves!
The plaque left by Bette Davis for one of her ex-husbands, Arthur
Farnsworth, which reads, “In Memoriam to Arthur Farnsworth, the
keeper of stray ladies. Peckettes, 1939 Presented by a Grateful One.”

The Pemi Fish and Game Club,
located at 295 Beede Road in
Holderness, NH continues the
biathlon program which enjoys
an enthusiastic following of
participants who combine
shooting with skiing, snow-
shoeing, running, walking,
wheelchairing, and mountain
biking as the season and abili-
ties dictate.
Persons of all ages and abilities
are urged to give this sport a
try! At nearly every shoot we
have participants who not only
have never done a biathlon
before but not even shot a rifle
Pemi Fish And Game Club’s Biathlon Program_____________________________________________________
before. Coaches are available
and all will fit in, ages 5 to 70’s
and beyond!
Rifles are available for your
use. (Courtesy of an NRA
Foundation grant we have six
Savage MII FVT target rifles
and two Kimber M83 rifles.)
Rifles must be iron-sighted bolt
action .22’s and the ammo
should be subsonic. In the club
rifles we use CCI Standard
Velocity (it is subsonic) and if
you cannot bring your own
ammo the club can provide it
for you.
The upcoming Winter Biathlon
dates are Saturdays, January 18,
February 15, and March 8,
2014. Nordic cross country ski-
ing or snowshoeing are choices
of locomotion. The winter
events are dependent on ade-
quate snow cover; check the
club website for the latest
announcements. The summer
biathlon schedule announced
soon and will be listed in the
March, 2014 Gazette, the club’s
quarterly newsletter.
Registration will be at the club-
house starting at 8:30 AM with
relays for all classes starting
between 10:30 and 11:00. A
second relay will be held if reg-
istration numbers warrant such.
The match fee is $15 for one
relay and $25 for both.
Advance registration is not
required. There are divisions
and classes geared to all ages
and experiences/abilities!
Assistance in registering, scor-
ing, and match administration is
always welcome and in fact
essential for success of the

Thousand White Women: The
Journals of May Dodd” by Jim
Fergus on Thursday, February

One Thousand White Women is
the story of May Dodd and a
colorful assembly of pioneer
women who, under the auspices
of the U.S. government, travel
to the western prairies in 1875
to intermarry among the
Cheyenne Indians. The covert
and controversial “Brides for
Indians” program, launched by

end May and her friends
embark upon the adventure of
their lifetime.

Tuesdays and Thursdays
9:00am to noon and 1:00pm to

HELPFUL HINTS & ANNOUNCEMENTS!
The pantry is located under the ambulance service
and is open Fridays from 1-3 PM.
Did you know that vegetarian meals are gaining in popularity --even
with regular meat-eaters. Forty-seven percent of Americans eat at
least one vegetarian meal per week, according to a recent poll by the
Vegetarian Resource Group. That's up 15 percent from similar data 10
years ago. Give it a try if you don't already!

It’s What The Locals Read!
- Notices, Letters, Opinions, Help Wanted, & More! -
Letter To The Editor_______________________________________
NOTICE
Nobody Asked, Just My Opinion_______
Another two weeks gone by, and
another two weeks of strange
weather. Hope everyone made it
through the ice and freezing
okay. One thing about New
England, you never know what
the weather is going to be like
the next day – or the next
minute for that matter!
This time around, I want to
touch upon a subject that I am
certainly no authority on. I am
not sure any of us are, but it def-
initely affects all of us at one
time or another. Whether it be
someone famous, a pet, a friend
or a family member, death
affects us all at one time or
another.
The reason I bring this up this
week is due to the fact that like
many of you reading this, I live
in a very small town. Warren
has just around 900 people in it.
Most likely, as I do, you know
about 95% of the people who
live within your communities.
Yes, I do have a reason for
bringing this all up.
In Warren, we lost 20 people
this past year. Many of them,
local icons, in their own right.
In the past few weeks alone,
since Christmas Eve, we have
certainly lost our share! There
were more than four just within
the past few weeks that affected
many of the same family mem-
bers. Two who passed were
brothers! Grover and Harold
Libby passed within but a few
days of each other!
Another, Helen (Ball) Whitcher,
who held the Boston Post Cane
at 99 years of age.
Yet another, a friend, taken from
us way to early, Nelson
Kennedy Jr. Built like an ox, a
hard worker and simply a good
guy. Nelson was born in 1959.
All their obituaries appear in
this issue of the newspaper.
I don't bring death up to bum
people out, or to be negative in
any way. I do bring it up howev-
er, to make us stop and think for
a moment. How many times do
we say, I wish we had said this
to someone, or done this with
someone, or have been meaning
to stop by and say hello? But we
don't! Then it’s just too late?
Our thoughts are with the fami-
ly and friends of these people at
the moment. As I stated earlier,
many of the same families were
affected by the death of all four
of the people I mentioned. So it
has been a tough few weeks for
many.
If you have someone you have
been meaning to call, write, or
stop by to say hello, do it, as
you just never know when
they'll be taken from us. Yes, life
is definitely too short.
Nobody Asked, Just My
Opinion - ~ BEF
Senator Jeff Woodburn (D-
Dalton) has a creditability
problem. When he’s in his dis-
trict, he talks a good game
about bipartisanship but, when
he gets to Concord, he’s just
another partisan Democrat
attacking Republicans with half
truths or outright fabrications.
Recently, Senator Woodburn
wrote an article claiming
Republican legislators had filed
a bill for a so-called “canoe
tax”. Such a bill would require
owners of non-motorized ves-
sels, such as canoes, kayaks
and row boats, to pay a $10 tax
which would go to support
spending by NH Fish and
Game. Senator Woodburn
bravely took the stance of
opposing this bill.
The only problem is that there
never was a “canoe tax” bill,
though Senator Woodburn is
quick to take credit for killing
that fictional bill. The Senator
knew that there was no such bill
in existence but decided to
ignore such a trivial fact.
Maybe Senator Woodburn’s
fight against imaginary taxes is
to distract our attention from
the tax increases he does sup-
port. Despite his earlier public
opposition to a gas tax, Senator
Woodburn now says he’ll vote
to increase the gas tax.
While politicians in Washington
feel it’s acceptable to make
false promises (if you like your
doctor, you can keep your doc-
tor…) here in New Hampshire,
we expect better.

The days fly by, time goes fast,
14 years have now passed
Our memories are strong,
loving times live on
We can’t see you, your voice we don’t hear,
We know you’re there, your spirit is near.
There’s been way too many family stars
added to yours this year...
Your loving family & friends...

Inspiring Words for You!
Dear Friends, God is our Hope! There are
scriptures to help you to understand that.
To read and remind ourselves, that our hope IS in
Him. Ps.62:5, Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my
hope comes from him. Ps.27:14, Let your hope be
in the Lord: take heart and be strong; yes, let your
hope be in the Lord. Ps.43:5, Why are you cast
down, O my soul? and why are you disturbed
within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him,
who is the health of my countenance, and my
God. Ps.130:7, O Israel, hope in the LORD; for with
the LORD there is unfailing love. His redemption
overflows. Ps.31:24, So be strong and courageous,
all you who put your hope in the LORD! And there
are so many more! You don't need to live without
hope! God is our hope. God bless you.

“Foxy Grandpa” Curated by
Professor David Starbuck Lamson Library at Plymouth
State University will present an
exhibit dedicated to “Foxy
Grandpa,” January 14-February
28 at the library and learning
commons on Highland Street in
Plymouth.
Foxy Grandpa and his creator,
Charles “Bunny” Schultze, first
appeared in the “New York
Herald” in 1900 and in the
“New York American” begin-
ning in 1902, according to
David Beronä, dean of the
library and academic support
services. Four different compa-
nies subsequently published
more than 30 books of reprinted
cartoons, and Broadway shows
and silent films featuring Foxy
Grandpa appeared over time.
Spinoffs including cast iron toy
banks, pins, dolls, postcards,
spoons and other ephemera also
became popular.
Dr. David Starbuck is Professor
of Anthropology in the
Department of Social Science at
Plymouth State University. His
interest in the legacy of Carl
"Bunny" Schultze and Foxy
Grandpa is both personal and
professional: personal in that he
grew up with a torn and stained
copy of an old Foxy Grandpa
comic book published in 1905,
and professional in that comic
strips (and books) reflect enor-
mous changes in American cul-
ture over the past 100 years. He
says, “Foxy Grandpa was pub-
lished between 1900 and 1920,
during the Platinum Age of
American comics, and it shows
a world that is relatively simple
and innocent, a pre-World War I
culture that is a far cry from the
risque, violent, superhero cul-
ture of today.” As a social scien-
tist, Starbuck seeks to under-
stand the values of our grand-
parents and great-grandparents
through the colors and subtle
humor of early comic book art.
Beronä says, “Many early
comic strips have come and
gone, and those from a hundred
years ago are largely unknown
to readers today. This older gen-
tleman in a three-piece suit and
spats was “foxy” because he
was (usually!) able to out-fox
his two mischievous grandsons.
Through Foxy Grandpa and
Bunny Schultze, readers are
able to go back in time and
experience humor that makes us
smile ‘just a little’ as we recog-
nize ourselves in the charac-
ters.”
Starbuck will bring the charac-
ter back to life at a presentation
from 5:30-6:30 p.m. February 5
at Lamson Library.
Library hours are online at
library.plymouth.edu/hours.
General information about
events at Plymouth State
University is online at

Tek Talk...With Eli Heath
Of Paige Computer Services
Tech Tips, Talk & Advice For Your Computer
SKIING THE “SKY-WAY”
by sky king...
All in Favor Say Eye
In the past I have often written
about how important it is to be
aware of where we are looking
when we ski or ride. Not only is
looking ahead of us, down the
hill good for our safety and the
safety of others on the hill, it
also greatly helps our perform-
ance as we take in the entire run
ahead of us instead of just look-
ing from one turn to the next.
Also when we look ahead we
tend to stand up a bit taller ,
keeping our chin up which
helps us to get more forward on
our skis or board.
But with this information in
mind it is also very important
that we pay attention to how we
are treating and protecting our
eyes. I always feel that some
type of eye protection be worn
even if we only wear sunglasses
at the very least. Traveling at
momentum one never knows
when the stray piece of ice my
be kicked up or other foreign
matter that could injure our
eyes.
I for one feel a good set of gog-
gles is imperative to skiing or
riding. Simply protecting your
eyes from the wind created
when we head down the hill is
always a smart idea, and gog-
gles provide that protection.
But there are many other factors
to consider and perhaps the idea
of owning more than one pair is
a good idea.
First off be sure you get a gog-
gle that fits your face well, and
if you wear a helmet as I do,
you want to make sure the gog-
gles will fit the helmet as well.
Different brands may fit differ-
ent shaped faces. We also must
consider the light we are deal-
ing with as there are different
lenses that are better for differ-
ent light situations. A yellow
lens may be best for flat light
and help greatly with depth per-
ception where a rose tint may
be better for a little lighter time.
Many goggles have a change-
able lens feature. We also want
to have a lens that filters out
harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Did you know you can actually
get sunburn on your eyes?
Consider the fact that not only
do we have the sun glare but
also the reflection off the snow.
Other factors to consider are
peripheral vision. Many new
styles may look cool but do not
give you that important side
vision. Recently I have seen a
new helmet with the goggles
built in in a sliding shield which
gives the user incredible periph-
eral vision.
The good news is, is that if you
do a little shopping around you
may be able to find two or three
pairs with different lenses at a
fair price as opposed to one
expensive pair, try on many
pairs before you invest. But
overall lets all just get in the
habit of protecting our eyes.
This is part one of a two part
series...
The date is approaching April 8,
2014 when Microsoft will no
longer support Windows XP.
Here are some options you may
have from Susan Bradley of
Windows Secrets.
All good things must come to
an end; in less than four
months, Microsoft will official-
ly end support for Windows
XP.
Here are the steps I’ll take to
ensure that my remaining XP
machines are as secure as they
can be. (Note: Many of the fol-
lowing tips can be applied to
newer versions of Windows,
too.)
What does “end of support”
mean? After April 8, 2014,
Microsoft will — among other
things — no longer release secu-
rity updates for its 12-year-old
operating system. Third-party
hardware and software vendors
might also take a cue from
Redmond and drop development
of XP-compatible drivers, add-
ons, and utilities on their new
products.
With that in mind, all XP users
should start by asking them-
selves: “Do I really need to stick
with an OS that will become
increasingly unsecure?” It’s akin
to driving an older car that’s not
equipped with airbags. Sure, it’ll
get the job done, but at what
potential risk?
For business computing, moving
off XP might not be an option.
Some line-of-business apps will
run only on Windows XP. The
same can be true of some con-
sumer products. For example, I
have software that lets me cus-
tomize my Pronto TV remote.
But the app will run only on XP.
So I keep XP on a virtual
machine that’s running under
Windows 7.
But those are rare exceptions. By
and large, there’s no compelling
reason to stick with XP — and, as
noted above, there are important
reasons not to.
All that said, if you must keep an
XP system up and running after
April 8, a few changes can help
keep the system relatively secure.
And those changes start with
Internet Explorer.
Reduce threats from
XP/browser vulnerabilities
Browsers have historically been
a leading gateway for PC infec-
tions, and Microsoft’s Internet
Explorer had one of the worst
reputations. The latest versions
of IE — 10 and 11 — are much
more secure than their predeces-
sors, but neither runs on XP. IE 8
was the last version of an MS
browser to run on XP. So one of
the first steps for hardening an
XP system? Don’t use IE as your
default browser. (You will, how-
ever, need to keep it installed and
updated.)
Switch to Google Chrome or
Mozilla Firefox as your primary
connection to the Internet. And if
you use Firefox, add in NoScript
to block malicious scripts.
Another reason to switch:
Google Apps doesn’t support IE
8, but the online service will run
in XP-compatible Chrome and
Firefox.
Keeping your antivirus software
up to date is always important,
but even more so with Windows
XP. My preferred AV setup is a
combination of Microsoft
Security Essentials (site) and
Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware
(site), which plays nicely with
other full-time virus scanners.
(As a rule, you don’t want to run
two full-time scanners at the
same time.)
Truth be told, I’m skeptical of
reports claiming that one
antivirus product is better than
another. All AV apps must react
to rapid changes in malware
delivery. And I often find suspi-
cious files on systems that have
top-rated antivirus products
installed. Combining compatible
AV scanners is the best way to
keep malicious software off a
system.
To complete your anti-malware
routine on your XP system, regu-
larly scan XP with a bootable AV
product such as the Kaspersky
Rescue Disk (site). That’ll ensure
your PC is free of hard-to-find
rootkits.
At some point, antivirus vendors
will stop supporting Windows
XP. When that happens, brows-
ing the Internet will no longer be
safe, no matter what browser you
use. Here’s how to move to a
secure browser and email client
outside XP.
For email and Internet, go with
a modern device
You might have a key application
that must run on Windows XP (I
can relate), but it certainly isn’t
email or Web browsing. If you’re
unwilling or unable to migrate to
a newer version of Windows, I
suggest you treat yourself this
holiday season to a new device
that’s ideal for email and brows-
ing — and relatively safe from
malware. (Most of these digital
devices don’t run on Windows.)
Consider, for example, purchas-
ing a Kindle Fire, Apple iPad,
Android-based tablet (more
info), Google Chromebook, or
even a laptop running Ubuntu
Linux (Amazon info).
You might also consider a
Windows RT device. But keep in
mind that Windows RT is not
Windows. (See the Oct. 25, 2012,
Top Story, “Win8 vs. Windows
RT: What to know before you
buy.”) Windows RT will look
familiar, but it doesn’t run legacy
Windows apps. If you want full
Windows on a highly mobile
device, see the Nov. 14 Best
Hardware story, “MS Surface
Pro 2 — the only PC you need?”
Well have part two next issue...

By Mortar and Pestle
As day turns to dusk turns to
night, the flame of our oil lamp
lights the southwest corner of the
cabin. Standing at our cook-
stove-countertop, I’m keeping a
steady rhythm in the soft light.
Marble on marble, I use the dark-
er hours to pound out flavor
thanks to the mortar and pestle.
This can be completed as much
by feel as by light; all that is
needed is a consistent raise and
fall of the pestle. As one arm
tires, I momentarily break the
beat while switching to the oppo-
site hand.
On this particular evening I put
my manual blender to work cre-
ating a dry curry mix: cardamom,
fennel, cumin, cinnamom,
cloves, black pepper, mustard
seeds, coriander, tumeric, fenu-
greek (just because it was gifted
to us), and a pinch of sugar.
Using roughly equal parts, I
gradually turn these seeds and
pods into a powder. The smell of
spices slowly pervades the air –
Ryan notes it, as these are some
of his favorite flavors.
Within twenty minutes, half of a
half-pint jar is filled and capped,
set atop the highest kitchen shelf.
I rinse the mortar as well as the
pestle, then begin peeling garlic
stored from this summer’s har-
vest. Once again the pestle beats
into the mortar in a steady beat,
as this time I mash these pungent
cloves. Another wide-mouth ball
jar is filled with the spicy garlic
pieces, then mixed with oil, salt,
and dried hot pepper. A spicy
variation of aioli is set to rest
beside the curry mix.
In less than an hour, more than a
week’s worth of flavors are creat-
ed from dried ingredients. It is
an interesting perception of time.
Approximately twenty minutes
per project – it is a remarkably
short period. Yet, it can feel long
when each second is put towards
the manual creation of an edible
good. My arm tires, or my hand
wearies with the force of the pes-
tle. While not hard work, it
requires steady effort. A lag in
attention or energy, however,
only means that the task takes
longer to complete. Time cer-
tainly means something different
when the energy of each moment
is self-created and directed.
In many ways the spice blends
and garlic oil that we make in this
way are a gift to each other. It is
certainly a gift of time – hand
production of anything takes
time, and food is no exception.
There is something about creat-
ing goods by hand for the enjoy-
ment of another: it is a gift of
care and of intention. When it
comes to these foods, the compo-
nent pieces comprise a final
product greater than its parts – a
gift of palate pleasure, and of
richly-flavored meals.

Obesity Declassified
Since its discovery in 1957, High
Fructose Corn Syrup (HCFS) has
been one of the best kept secrets
of food and beverage company
productions with the total sup-
port of the USDA. Currently,
researchers like Robert H.
Lustig, a University of California
at San Francisco endocrinologist,
author of Fat Chance, have begun
to declassify the role HCFS plays
in our obesity problem.
As a child, I loved the Orange
Soda we had on holiday family
picnics and the batch of Hires
Root Beer my mother brewed up
each summer. Then, in the early
sixties, the flavor changed; soda
tasted like chemicals and was no
attraction for me beyond the Root
Beer floats we flavored with a
scoop of vanilla ice cream. I
knew that chemical sweeteners
had been added in increased
amounts over the years, but only
recently looked at the big picture.
Here’s what I learned.
High Fructose Corn Syrup
(HFCS), the darling of Big Ag
corn growers, receives govern-
ment subsidies that keep its price
cheap and make a tidy profit
from its monopoly, paid for with
our tax dollars. But that’s only
half of the story. HFCS, as a
sweetener is much more potent
than natural cane sugar, which is
not subsidized and therefore
more expensive and we pay the
full price for natural sugar.
In 1915, drinking a 6.5 oz soda
bottle daily would cause an 8 lb.
wt. gain/year. Today’s 20 oz.
plastic bottle daily will cause a
26 lb. weight gain/year. The
industry went from bottles to
cans in 1960, and currently also
sells in big, thirst buster 44 oz.
cups and big 42.2 oz. plastic bot-
tles.
In tandem with the increase in the
size of soft drink containers, food
and beverage companies distract-
ed us with the fat-free propagan-
da. Fat was claimed to be the cul-
prit causing obesity. Yet, we need
fat for energy and healthy nerve
functioning. We need fat to trans-
port vitamins A, D, E and K; to
protect and surround organs like
the heart and liver; to prolong
digestion for longer-lasting sati-
ety, and more. All this was disre-
garded as people were encour-
aged to go on a low-fat blitz. It
didn’t matter that there wasn’t a
fat problem before HFCS was
introduced. The public was suc-
cessfully blindfolded from the
real culprit.
The tragedy is that the food and
agriculture corporations knew
exactly what they were doing,
what was causing obesity to go
viral. They spent years suppress-
ing research and funding only
research that supported their
claim that fat was the problem.
Since educational institutions are
challenged to come up with
research grants, having a review
string attached to any corporate
funds meant research to the con-
trary never saw print.
So, how about the rest of the
story: how does HFCS make peo-
ple fat? First, we have to under-
stand how our intestines connect
with the liver and the rest of our
body. If you could stretch out
your intestines, they’d look like
the border trim of one big
umbrella. The fabric connecting
it all together would be the
mesenteric membrane with veins
in place of the spokes and a big
vein that goes to the liver in place
of the handle. Anything we eat
has to be broken down to a slurry
fine enough to be absorbed
through the wall of the intestine
and into the small veins that fun-
nel into the big vein to the liver.
The liver then decides what to do
with what we eat. If we take in
more sugar than the body needs
for the energy our bodies need to
function, the liver cannot store
extra sugar. It converts it to fatty
acids that are then sent out to be
stored in all the familiar places.
When we eat whole foods, the
sugar in them shares space with
nutrients and fiber that slows
down transit time to the liver
because the food must be
chewed, then ground up in the
stomach before it turns into a
slurry and moves on into the
intestines. Even in the intestines,
food relies on a squirt of bile
from the gall bladder and squirts
of insulin and enzymes from the
pancreas to blend it up before it
moves through the mesentary to
the main line to the liver.
However, when we drink soda, it
moves through the digestive
track like a luge! There’s no
gradual absorption. Every swig is
a big hit for the liver to deal with
right now! Too much soda right
now means more fat stored right
now. Pregnant women pass the
HFCS to their developing fetuses
and any offspring they nurse. The
WIC (Women, Infants and
Children) nutritional program
provided HFCS laced formula
for babies that caused babies to
be obese at 6 mos. of age.
Significantly, the FDA gives
fructose a GRAS (Generally
Rated as Safe) status. The FDA
does not regard fructose as an
acute toxin. It is classed as a
chronic toxin. Translated, that
means it only leads to chronic
diseases, doesn’t kill you right
off.
Lustig uses 4 interventions with
his clients, who happen to be
obese children.
1. Get rid of all sugared
liquid. Drink only water and
milk.
2. Eat carbohydrates with
fiber- include plenty of raw veg-
gies.
3. Wait 20 min. for second
portions.
4. Buy your screen time,
minute for minute, with physical
activity time.
The first step in dealing with any
problem is to know what the
cause is. Whether we are obese or
not, we are all affected by the
problem of obesity. Hopefully,
we will provide support and
encouragement to each other in
our goal to keep each other well.

The next frontier in sprawl may be on the high seas, where the
proliferation of fishing, shipping, tourism, resource extrac-
tion, energy development, military exercises and other human
activity has begun to call into question just how vast our
oceans really are. Pictured: a fishing trawler on the high seas.

OBITUARY

Dear EarthTalk: I recently
heard the term “ocean sprawl,”
which was a new one on me.
We all know “sprawl” as it
manifests itself above sea level.
But in the oceans? Can you
enlighten?
Bill Chadwick, Nantucket, MA
We are all familiar by now with
“urban sprawl”—the uncon-
trolled spread of urban develop-
ment into areas beyond the city.
But environmentalists warn that
the next frontier in sprawl is on
the high seas, where the prolif-
eration of fishing, shipping,
tourism, resource extraction,
energy development, military
exercises and other human
activity has begun to call into
question just how vast our
oceans really are.
According to the non-profit
Natural Resources Defense
Council (NRDC), our oceans
are already under siege from
problems like pollution, over-
fishing and acidification, and
increased industrial activity off-
shore—leading to so-called
“ocean sprawl”—will jeopard-
ize the food, jobs and recreation
we have come to depend on the
oceans to provide. It’s hard to
believe, given how much plan-
ning goes into various types of
development and human activi-
ty on land, that the oceans are
still like the Wild West—with
various entities staking claims
on huge stretches of open water
for different purposes.
A promising approach to com-
bat ocean sprawl is called
coastal and marine spatial plan-
ning (CMSP), a form of zoning
for the seas to help define who
can do what and where. Says
the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA), the federal agency
charged with predicting
changes in climate, weather,
oceans and coasts, CMSP
“identifies areas most suitable
for various types or classes of
activities in order to reduce
conflicts among uses, reduce
environmental impacts, facili-
tate compatible uses and pre-
serve critical ecosystem servic-
es to meet economic, environ-
mental, security and social
objectives.”
“Marine planning places sound
science and the best available
information at the heart of deci-
sion-making and brings federal,
state, tribal and other partners
together to cooperatively devel-
op coastal and marine spatial
plans,” continues NOAA. “This
process is designed to decrease
user conflict, improve planning
and regulatory efficiencies,
decrease associated costs and
delays, engage affected com-
munities and stakeholders, and
preserve critical ecosystem
functions and services.”
President Obama’s 2010
National Ocean Policy directs
NOAA and other federal agen-
cies to work with ocean users,
industries and coastal commu-
nities on ways to implement
CMSP in America’s off-shore
waters to prevent ocean sprawl
at home while setting an exam-
ple for other nations around the
world. Nine regional planning
bodies are currently tasked with
developing detailed plans for
their own regions by early
2015, at which point federal
policy makers will begin to
coordinate implementation.
In response to momentum on
CMSP, a coalition of industries
including offshore energy, ship-
ping, fisheries, recreation, min-
ing and others formed the
World Ocean Council to have a
say in how and where marine
spatial planning is implement-
ed. The group organized a
National Business Forum on
Marine Spatial Planning in
2011 and will take part in a
World Ocean Summit in San
Francisco in February 2014.
Those of us who appreciate the
sea certainly hope that CMSP
and other approaches will suc-
ceed in turning the tide for
oceans and not be undermined
by special interests only con-
cerned with bottom lines.
